Worst hotel I have ever stayed in! Dirty, smelly and in a horrible part of town. Very old decor, dirty walls, carpet and bathroom. The fan in the room was broken and when we asked for another or an alternative we just got a 'sorry it's hot outside'. One hair dryer in the whole hotel. The bathroom smelt o urine... More

I travel often and use TripAdvisor for every trip but this is the first time I am actually leaving a review of a hotel. I've stayed at some of the best hotels and some not so great places - but never have I stayed at such a horrid place as the Hotel Terminus Saint Charles. I strongly urge all travelers... More

Sorry that you had such a terrible experience in our hotel. About the cleanliness of your room you can go see for yourself by reading the reviews on this site and even on all other review sites that the cleanliness of the hotel is a criterion which emerges widely. All our rooms are cleaned meticulously every day! However, rest assured... More

This hotel is situated very close to the St Charles SNCF Station, as as such makes it very convenient for people who are not only visiting Marseille, but other parts of Southern France. The Metro station is also across the road, and this can be used for rapid access to the Vieux Port area. The rooms are fairly small, but... More

This past April I visited Marseille with my husband and we booked this hotel on a suggestion from a friend. We were not disappointed! When we walked in the staff was very friendly and welcoming. We were pleasantly surprised to find that they spoke excellent English. Our room was spacious and very clean. The hotel has a modern feel to... More

We were travelling on a budget as a family, and chose this hotel because we were told that it was perfectly located by the train station. Admittedly, we weren't expecting anything amazing. We were in fact, pleasantly surprised. When we arrived, the receptionist made us feel instantly welcomed, and could not do enough for us. The room, wasn't the biggest... More

If you are looking for a hotel which offers a great room, this hotel really does. Although we were not expecting much from a city hotel, we thought it was good value. The rooms were really welcome after our journey and had comfortable beds, adequate bathroom facilities and we were able to use Wifi connection without any problem. The hotel... More

I stumbled upon this charming little hotel by complete accident. When I first arrived, the staff at the Terminus allowed me to inspect some of the rooms before I made my decision as I had read that many of the street-side rooms were too noisy. There is still some noise in these rooms but the windows are quite well soundproofed.... More

Travelling by train, so this is ideal as regards shifting heavy bags. Arrived early, bags taken in for us. Clean room as described. Found the way of avoiding the station steps - great to look at, less fun with wheelie bags - cross road then bear left and keep walking up the slope, then across the road at the taxi... More
