Stayed for three nights in July. Had a amazing room on the top floor overlooking the port and the basilica. Room was great with a huge bath that easily fits two people. Room is ultra quiet when the balcony door is shut. Breakfast was the best we had in France with lots of variety and high quality. The hotel itself... More

I reserved a room with no view on the port, a room in a quiet street with aircon, wifi and max 15 square meters. I was surprised in good to receive at the 4th floor a larger room with a small balcony on the side street and a wifi working. However, we heard the noise of the port and it... More

My partner and I stayed in this amazing property both before and after our family trip to Provence. The hotel staff could not have been more accommodating and upon arrival for both stays, they found a room that was available so we could check-in early and get to our room right away. The view from our room was incredible! The... More

The hotel was welcoming. Our room was ready when we arrived. We had a two bedroom suite with a balcony that overlooked the old port. The view from the balcony was outstanding, but when seated, the railing obstructed the view of the port. The church on the hill was perfectly framed in the middle of the view when standing. The...

The location of this hotel is fantastic, right opposite the harbour and marina, the staff were very accommodating and courteous, Julie the manager is lovely and Eric the Concierge was helpful, we did not have the chance to eat in the restaurant as it was closed due to the unsafe building next door, We were blessed with fabulous sunny weather...

Needed a last minute room in Marseille and decided to stay at the port. This hotel was highly rated by other Trip Advisorites, so we paid a bit more for a room with a view in a high floor. Ended up saving quite a bit by shopping for appetizer bottle of wine and foods at the Gallerie Lafayette two blocks... More

This is my new favorite hotel in Marseille. The front desk staff is extremely helpful, especially since I am not fluent in French. The complimentary drink at the hotel bar was nice, especially after a long flight. The rooms are not large, the port views are amazing. The hotel has recently been renovated and the sleep quality of the room... More

This hotel is directly overlooking the busy harbor and square in Marseille. It is within walking distance to many of the historical sites, the boat excursions, and the old part of town. Shopping is just 2 blocks away. The harbor is surrounded by bars and restaurants, all very busy and mostly very good. We had a room on the floor... More

We paid a bit more than our usual here but found the location ideal for touring the historic areas by foot, with easy access to the metro to the train station and from train station to the airport (both ways). Good wifi, working lift, very friendly staff. The view of the port was a bonus. We would return!
