Location is excellent for the tourist part of Marseille. Plenty of restaurants within a few minutes walk and also just a few minutes from both Metro and Bus Stops. The hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms are a very good size, and most rooms probably have a harbour view. The staff are very helpful and all we spoke to had excellent...

Travelled on recently introduced Eurostar service to Marseille for 3 night stay before moving on to Avignon for 2 more nights. Hotel was in perfect location - Room 501 had a balcony with views of both the port and La Bonne Mere - close to lots of attractions and eateries.

Take a superior room with a balcony and view of the port. The rooms and furnishings are clean and recently renovated. The hotel is centrally located and has nearby discounted parking. The public transportation is so good that you do not need a car to get around. The breakfast is also very good. A great value for money.

The air conditioner in our room was broken, and the staff was quick to come by and check out and then move us to a new room when the problem was not immediately fixable.

Great location very close to everything. Metro is at door step. No noise. Great staff very friendly and helpful. Easy walk to most attractions. Poor breakfast. I like to have lots of fresh fruit and a better choice of hot food. Bacon and scrabbled eggs were poor.
