The location of this hotel is excellent. It is in the heart of the Old Port Area, easy walking distance to upscale shopping, the restaurants, and tourist traps. However, our room was hot and the A/C was not working. We were told they had shut it off, then we were told it was broken. We had fabulous view with a...

Right on the Harbour, La Residence is the perfect location for a holiday in Marseille. The room we had was big enough for two and had a small lounge area attached. The location is near the centre of the main tourist area. Our room had a view of the harbour and the cathedal overlooking Marseille. Exvellent hotel.

I went to this hotel with a group. The staff were helpful; the rooms were well equipped and spotlessly clean. The food was excellent too; breakfast and dinner. I was on a high floor at the front overlooking the harbour; a fabulous view with a nice terrace to sit on and enjoy the sunshine. thoroughly recommended.

What a wonderful view and location. From sunrise to sunset a lovely picturesque view of the harbor and the city. The area around the hotel is active with street front restaurants. The staff is very professional and incredibly helpful. I arrived early and they did their best to get my room ready ASAP. I was able to get in slightly...

There is no doubt that this hotel is in a great location. Situated right at the end of the harbour, close to shopping, restaurants and the city, the views from the balcony are spectacular. We had a 2 bedroom and the bed from the main bedroom looked out onto the harbour. Beautiful during the day or night. There is a...

Built by architect André-Jacques Dunoyer de Segonzac in 1952, La Residence is a stunningly located hotel on the Old Port of Marseille, with a most amazing view on the Port, Notre Dame de la Garde, and the city.

We stayed on the 7th floor with a balcony overlooking the harbour. Relatively small hotel but reasonable size rooms and nice fit out. Comfortable lobby and outdoor sitting area. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. Free Wi Fi that worked well
