The hotel is conveniently located near the main central station and metro. Staff was friendly and courteous. The room was comfortable, modern and well equipped, though I think it would be a little tight for 2 adults with 2 big suitcases.

Our front desk team make sure to inform all our guests that taking the Saint-Charles staircase is not mandatory and advises you to take the easy road back and from Saint-Charles international train station. Next time you visit us, we also recommend you to try our band new SPA (open from 10.00 am until 21.00 pm) it is equipped with nordic sauna, steam room, sensorial shower and massages treatment, and for our sportive guests a fitness room (free access 7/7 from 06.00 am until 23.00pm).

Close to the main central railway, metro & buses. Helpful staff on arrival. We walked each day to the Port & major tourist attractions, as well as very good restaurants.
The hotel was comfortable, clean & quiet, given it was on a main road.
The decor was modern & refreshing.

We had a few days in Marseille before travelling on to Cassis. My wife booked us into the Alex Hotel, a short walk from the Gare St Charles, which was very convenient.

Our Junior Suite was great, clean and quite spacious. Large sized double-bed and a separate area for sitting at

"Front rooms overlook a main road and the Gare. Our room was at the back overlooking a courtyard which if you like quiet, was spot on."
"4th Floor has smaller rooms but amazing views."
"Get a room on a higher floor to get a city overview."
"Look for bigger rooms, if you have a lot of baggage."
"Best if you can get one at the back overlooking the courtyard. Front are still quiet"
