I was lucky to be at La Residence on Bastille Day and had the amazing and private view of the Old Port filled with firework displays from my room's balcony. It was such a great way to celebrate the beginning of my holiday in France and I am glad that I chose to stay at this hotel. The interior design... More

I loved every single thing about this hotel. I booked the room months in advance, knowing that I would be there on Bastille Day and wanting a view of the Old Port with a room that had a balcony, on a high floor, that would afford this. I emailed back and forth with the hotel to ensure that I had... More

This location is about the best anyone could ask for. Right on the port and within walking distance of a million small shops and store chains, eateries, bars and so many things to do. The action in Marseille is right here. The hotel is very nice, well maintained and well equipped. I am very sure the hotel is quite old... More

We had a very nicely appointed room with a balcony and magnificent view of the old port. The room was quite large, even by America standards. The breakfast was a buffet with many items, including a nice selection of cheeses, although perhaps a bit pricey. Parking was in a municipal garage a couple of blocks away. Would return.

We stayed here before and after our week long stay in Roussillon. After picking up our rental car at the Marseille airport we found the hotel easily just by using our iphone maps. Parking was available nearby at an underground municipal parking lot. The location was in the center of activity of the old port.....scores of restaurants, shops, interesting sights,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in early July at the end of a nearly 3-week long trip. We had booked a harbor-view room that did not disappoint. Our 7th floor room was a good size - a bit small by US standards but larger than most other French hotels we've seen. The full wall of windows and the balcony... More

Fantastic hotel on the Rue du quai. Right on the Harbour, with all the sights within walking distance- The market, the town Hall, all the local tours start within 300 meters of this hotel. The view from the room was terrific. The Notre dame on the Hill opposite was great viewing from our bed through the windows that overlooked the... More

I stayed in this hotel while working in Marseille. It is not a business hotel, but that did not matter. I had a wonderful room with a proper desk and internet facilities were good. The staff is very kind and I very mich enjoyed the stay. I will be back!

Had room 803 which is arguably the best room in the hotel. King bed and balcony with fabulous view. Great shower and big room. Spring for the rooms with the balconies if you can afford as stunning. My issue with the staff was various. You had to walk up a narrow staircase to get to my room and staff doesn't... More
