We stayed at this hotel while travelling around the south of France. Great location opposite the port, within easy walking distance of the station, restaurants and local attractions. The room was absolutely lovely, nice big room and bathroom, great little touches. Staff really friendly and helpful, even got me some milk to make a coffee in the room late at... More

Overlooking the Vieux Port this hotel is clean, comfortable and ideally situated for visiting Marseille's historic sites and museums. It might be quite noisy in the height of summer but in December our room was quiet (7th floor), warm and comfortable with a terrific view across to Notre Dame de la Garde and the seaport. The staff were very helpful... More

I spent 3 days in this hotel with my family and some friends and was very satisfied with everything. The hotel is ideally located in the middle of the historical district. It was built in the early 1950's and was recently refurbished in the 1950s style with a lot of taste. Most rooms (including ours) have a stunning view on... More

We spent a wonderful weekend with our children in Marseille at The Residence du Vieux Port. The location couldn't be better, with a view on the Vieux Port, and a lovely stroll to the MuCEM. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. We couldn't have chosen better.

Immediately opposite the old port this hotel was modern and very clean. We paid foe the port view with a balcony and it was well worth it. Room was a good size without being spacious and facilities were excellent. Breakfast was very good and if you got to the breakfast area at the right time you could have it on... More

We selected the top floor, about 45mq. Great view. Wi-Fi easy and free. Quiet. Large and comfortable bed. Walking distance from the old town and main streets. Close to the Hotel de Ville Parking (11€ for 24h stay).

I woulnt call it a four star hotel, however the view from the little varanda to the old port of Marseille makes it worth it. The restaurant of the hotel is very bad. Location is great and check in and out very smooth. Honest hotel.

Excellent location for all the sites to visit. Penthouse suites are superb with phenomenal views of the port. Lots of good places to eat nearby , including Simon's cafe which serves excellent quality food at reasonable prices.
