VERY GOOD: Great location and well-secured. Airport shuttle from railway station at :10, :30 and :50 past the hour. 30 minute trip for €8.50, not bad. Hotel is located at the back of the train station so care must be taken in the surrounding area. Got a corner room which was clean and comfortable. AC made a distinct noise every 15 minutes so you may want to switch it off late at night. Rate didn't include the buffet which looked OK. Overall great overnight accommodation for travellers.
NOT SO GOOD: No printer facility to print off boarding pass etc.

Pros: Right next to the train station. A 15-minute walk to Vieux-Port. Clean room, modern furniture, fluffy pillows and blanket, air-conditioned, a desk.
Cons: Small rooms. No closet, just a small rack with hungers. Wi-Fi is free but limited to 200 Mb transfer per day, enough only for light email traffic. Breakfast is mediocre. A short cut to city center goes through an ethnic minority neighborhood, which looks deserted and creepy at night.

The hotel provided excellent accommodation conditions. Members of staff were really helpful and friendly, and food was decent -- not the best I've ever had but suited to the price paid -- although breakfast could have afforded more choice.

The only misgiving I had was to see rats running in the garden shrubberies hemming the restaurant terrace but probably difficult to eradicate them in a city like Marseille.

Although Ibis usually offers excellent quality for not too much money, this hotel was even better then we’ve expected. Clean rooms, great service, good beds and Marseille’s train station is just a stone’s throw away. The surrounding neighborhood is still dodgy (southwest of the station), even though this area is considered to be rehabilitated over the last years. So after a long evening of eating bouillabaisse and trying out multiple bottles of white wine, you might be better off taking the metro. Metro 1 brings you from the Vieux Port area to Gare Saint Charles (the train station) in just 2 stops.
This hotel would have had my maximum rating, if the room would have been just a little bit bigger.
Overall, highly recommended!
