We needed a hotel at this location and the other options were much more expensive. The room is very small with barely a small night table. The room was clean, but the rest of the hotel was not exactly very nice. For the price it should be better. For one night was ok...

I was very satisfied for the price and what I expected from a typical 1 star hotel. I would recommend this if you are traveling on a budget but want to be in walking distance of the Vieux Port and have a decent private room and bath. My wife and I were simply hoping for a cheap option that was... More

Booked last minute and wanted a cheap option... The hotel is in a fine location... not fantastic, but maybe a 15 minute walk to the main port area. Check in was OK... we were presented with 4 keys and told to choose a room... 2 were on the 1st floor and 2 on the 4th. We were told if we... More

Great, affordable place to stay in Marseille. Very friendly reception staff. Walkable distance to some great nearby cafes and the Marina. Elevator is old and seems a bit unsafe (but at least they have an elevator, unlike many other older-style hotels in Europe!). Rooms are spacious and have a romantic feel to them. They are clean and some rooms offer... More

+ cheap + basicly clean + clean towels every day - very discusting air conditioning machine, maybe moldy - stains in white sheets (probably just won't leave off in washing machine) Would not take my boyfriend to a romantic holiday but with friend and low budget it was good! :)

The hotel has a good central location, and was easy to find (by the side of a quite noisy road...). The staff seemed a bit careless though, and was watching movies or surfing on the internet a lot. Our room smelled like cigarette smoke, and so did our clothes after our stay. The room was basic, but fine and so... More

Air-conditioning was cold enough during summer. Carpets were dirty. Bathtub had spots that cannot be cleaned. No kettle provided in rooms. Rundown building. Survivable for a night or 2 but not long stays.

Location perfect - close to tube and walking distance to Castellane. Room small but clean and bed was comfortable. The area is a little rough round the edges but felt completely safe. Air conditioning could have been a little stronger.
