We booked this hotel last minute and were pleasantly surprised with our stay. The reception staff were friendly and very helpful.
Location: This hotel is only a 10 minute walk to the harbour area. There is a bus stop just outside the hotel so easy to get to from the central train/bus station (Bus 82s) and to other tourist attractions. There is a small beach in Le Pharo and a casino supermarket for water etc.; both are a 5 min walk from the hotel.
Room: We had a superior room on the 4th floor for 6 nights. All suites on the 4th (top) floor had large balconies; the front rooms overlooked the harbour, whilst the ones at the back gave views of the Notre Dame de la Garde. The rooms were spacious, comfy, clean and modern. There was a coffee machine and mini-bar, although use of them was at a cost. There was a safe for personal belongings.
Restaurant: We used this once. The food was excellent when it arrived, but we found it too expensive, had to wait ½ hour before our order was taken (we were the only people in the restaurant at the time), and the bar/restaurant staff weren’t overly friendly. We found there was plenty of local and reasonably priced restaurants down in the harbour.
Facilities: The pool is a little small but nice to have for those hot days. The sun loungers were limited, although we only had one day when we couldn’t access some, so not bad for peak season. The only downside is the hotel has a café next door to the pool, and often this was full of locals and businessmen who would stare at guests using the pool. This felt a little uncomfortable.
Note: Make sure you have your credit card for the room deposit. If you do not have a credit card they will charge you a deposit of 150 euros per night of your stay. They do not accept debit cards for this.
