So we were on our way home, flew out to Montpellier on Sunday (thank you easyJet) but there are no return flights to Gatwick until the weekend. A bit silly, but hey, an opportunity to explore. So we chose a modest hotel, close to the old harbour. Small room, small beds and the extractor fan in the bathroom didn't work.... More

My husband and I have just spent a night in this hotel which was a back-up plan for other accommodation which didn't eventuate. Having paid for the other accommodation we didn't want to outlay a lot of money again. We got a rate of 60 euro for Hotel Sud and have to say it was good value for money. We... More

As others have noted the rooms are quite small - this is not a problem, they are cozy and have more or less everything needed, there is amazingly even a foyer to the small room. The location is great. I would like this hotel very much if it were about a third of the price. I guess I would prefer... More

Nice hotel, very close to the Old Port of Marseille and Opera. The reception staff was just great. They answered a tons of questions about good dining, places of intrest. They also helped us to print boarding passes, etc. Huge thanks to all of them! The elevator is so tiny that only 1 person with a small suitcase could fit... More

Important positives for us about du Sud were good central location (almost in the harbour) while on a quiet street, clean room with good bed, spacious bathroom with tab and in a good condition, good price, friendly stuff, simplicity. Breakfast is very basic. If the carpet in the lobby area and on the stairs were replaced on time, overall impression... More

Having read previous reviews we knew the rooms would be small but hadn't realised just how small! First good point was that there was a room available for us when we arrived mid morning, we had booked in advance but many hotels don't let you in until the afternoon. There was air con but it was controlled by the front... More

This hotel is very well positioned, close to the Vieux Port but in a quiet street. The lady in charge was extremely friendly and kind, and I was given a room with air conditioning at the rear of the building. Unfortunately the outlook was rather depressing and I was glad to be spending only one night there, but the bed... More

This hotel is great value (€80 per night) considering its location at the Vieux Port which is the main attraction in Marseille. You have the Metro station and plenty of restaurants just around the corner. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The room was small with no A/C but we had a big refurbished bathroom including a bathtub. Free Wifi... More

The main attraction of this hotel is that it's cheap considering its location in the heart of the action - The Vieux Port. I paid less than 75 Euros per night in the peak of summer. In terms the hotel itself, its a very basic family run operation. The lobby is not very fancy and a little tired - but... More

“Upper floors and rooms away from the street should be quieter. There's a bar with live music on the ground floor.”

“Ask for a room that doesn't face Rue Beauvau. You'll get a lousy view, but it will be quiet.”

“If like me you are visiting in the summer, you need to ask for a room with aircon. I also asked for a quiet room away from the street, but the outlook from the rear windows is pretty dire. However, a peaceful night with the comfort of aircon was my main objective, and this is what I got.”
