This is a good hotel in a great location for exploring Marseille. Slightly quirky interior but good sized rooms. Slow lift and corridors only light up with movement. Decent breakfast and excellent concierge team. The big downside was noise until the very late hours from drummers and bands on the nearby plaza - seems to be a persistent summer problem.... More

While Marseille is not much of a place, this hotel is located around the prettiest and most touristic part of town, 10 mins walk from the central station. Our room had a balcony with fabulous views and comfortable beds with aircon. The wifi was poor. There is free coffee in the living room and sometimes free croissants in a basket... More

A last minute reservation brought me to that hotel, it sure was a lucky draw, only bedroom left was on side street (still had a view if one ready to stretch some...) but it was great and inexpensive, super comfortable and quiet all 3 nights, breakfast on upstairs dining room balcony was awesome (view and food just perfect).

Located on the old port overlooking with all balconies overlooking the Notre Dame, it an exellent and well located hotel. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. The vibrant colours make it a little quirky. The bathroom is spacious and clean. Free wifi is fast. The hotel bar has a live DJ (at least on Sunday nights) playing is cool vibes... More

We stayed one night at the Hotel La Residence du Vieux Port in late August. This is a fun hotel. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and very comfortable and the views are picture perfect. The rooms use primary colours to give a feeling of space. The bathroom was large with black and white checkered... More

Well situated, in a charming building dating from 1954, Pouilhon-style architecture, decoration inspired by Joan Miró, this is such a lovely hotel. Choose a room with a balcony, you will want to do a bed-in! No excessive luxury, just correct equipment. These are rooms with a view, you will love it.

Each room has a balcony and the balcony door has a lock which keeps excess noise out. The breakfast room is comfortable and has a terrace. If you are lucky enough to snag a table outside, breakfast overlooking the harbour is very pleasant. The Old Port is a great place to stay in Marseille. It is active during the day... More

My partner and I almost booked somewhere else when I found the reviews with pictures here on Tripadvisor of Residence du Vieux Port. And we are glad we decided to take a chance. The service from the front desk was great especially after sitting on planes from the US for 10 hours. Walking into a room with a wonderful view... More
