One of the best things about this hotel is its location. It is on perhaps the best side of the port, provides some of the most wonderful views of Marseille and is within easy reach of many sites and attractions. A lot of good places to eat and drink are within comfortable walking distance. The breakfast offering at the hotel... More

Staff are excellent, helpful and friendly. Hotel is perfectly located on the quieter side of the port yet next to suitable restaurants, cafe etc. decoration is a little load and colourful but tasteful and holding up, as with other reviewers maybe a little dated but holding itself well. If you're a big breakfast eater you may not enjoy the breakfast.... More

Best spot on the quai. Odd hotel. 70's design with loud interiors. Good bar and restaurant. Bedrooms can be noisy at the front but a lot better when you close the balcony door. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom is a little outdated and the shower is truly odd - due to a very low ceiling in this area the shower head... More

Right on the Quais of the old port, this hotel, is by it´s staff a very confortable place to be in Marseille. The rooms with their large windows overlooking the marina , the Fort St-jean and Notre-Dame de la Garde, is unique. The rooms are of a very modern style, could I say "à la Miro". Try also their very... More

This is a super hotel. It's clean, comfortable, stylish and the bedrooms are large,light and airy with a great view of the old port. The air con works well and is quiet, as are the rooms thanks to the traffic changes in Marseille. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. We had lunch and dinner in the restaurant and the...

Spent two nights in this hotel overlooking the vieux port. I had booked the "suite ciel", a suite on the top floor with a balcony. The view of the Vieux Port, and Notre Dame de la Garde cathedral is absolutely wonderful. The room itself perhaps did not meet the level of comfort I expected for the price. Overall, I would... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights with two teenaged granddaughters and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Their reaction when entering our room was, "AWESOME!" The view was absolutely amazing...especially at night! The girls stayed in the main room and I had a separate bedroom with a twin bed. I highly recommend this hotel when traveling to Marceille.
