Hotel located right on the quay of Vieux Port - "two steps" from Christmas markets, variety of fish rerstaurants and boat trips, very close to shopping area. View to Notre Dame de la Garde and port of Marseille. The breakfasts are rather good. The hotel offers parking by special rate EUR 11 per day in nearby parking.

Stunning location right in the port and close to the Metro. If you can get a balcony to overlook the port, this is highly recommended. The Reception service was excellent, very friendly and very helpful right from the beginning.

I was in Marseille for two nights. I was really concerned after reading all about the crime and seeing the grit and grind on the streets. The hotel was like a safe haven in a great location with views of the old port and the Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The room... More

- rooms with balconies are worth the extra euros. if you don't mind climbing a set of stairs to the top floor under the roof, room 803 is unique in it's position and it's split level living room.

You can hear the street-sweeper in the morning - but the views are worth it - you get the buskers in the evening. Request port... More
