We booked a night based on the reviews from tripadvisor and sadly it totally led us astray! The hotel is definitely not in a good location. In order to unload our bags we had to circle the block three times and throw them out of the car! This was really difficult with a child. The owners were very nice and... More

When we asked for the Ryad and passed the address, the taxi driver pretended not to know it. When we arrived, he told us that it was a rotten hotel in a bad district. We should listen to him and go and stay in the Excelsior. (In simple terms this means that it is in the North African district). We... More

We LOVED le Ryad. We stayed there in July of 2012 actually, a part of our 3 week honeymoon in France. Marseille is a totally overwhelming city, to be sure, and if you're expected to stay at the George Cinq, well -- stay in Paris. Le Ryad is totally gorgeous in decor, bed was great, bath and toiletries were unique... More

We travelled around France for several weeks in July & August camping, we stayed at Le Ryad for one night to recharge & sleep in a real bed and what a welcome we received. The owner was genuinely lovely and very helpful, even upgrading us because there was vacancies in the hotel. The room was beautiful, big and airy and... More

Overpriced for what we got.. There was a very weird shower which wasn't a shower was a bath in a strange cave very difficult to get in and... More

Dear Amy and Roger B Thank you for your contribution on Tripadvisor. About the price of the superior Room Ahlem you booked, Le Ryad is about 10% less compare to the average 2013 prices of Marseille. Half price for a superior room of 27 squares, Wifi, queen size bed, Flat TV, Coffee Machine in the city center of Marseille doesn't... More

I don't agree at all with the rave reviews of this hotel: the room on the fourth floor was small, ugly, worn and dusty, resembled more mid-range hostels in Indonesia than a mid-range hotel in Europe. The lack of wifi in the rooom was a minus as well. No elevator. If lower floors are nicer, be sure you don't get... More

This is quite a unique hotel, full of character and interesting design - way different to the run of the mill and somehow so fitting with Marseille itself, a fascinating city. We stayed two nights in very spacious superior doubles on the second floor. They were decorated in a Moroccan theme and were airy, bright, light and clean. Very comfortable... More

The hotel is almost "perfect"..; Very well decorated, smiling welcome and business attitude. When we asked for restaurant advice, we were told about an address that was indeed a good one. Large bedroom and full bathroom, real Moroccan decoration, view on the inside garden. A bit cold at night as outside the mistral (strong cold wind) blew all of the... More
