The hotel location is good, in the district of La Joliette: from here you can take the metro, the tram, or get to the Vieux Port (old harbor), passing the old town (Le Panier) or along the harbor. The rooms, like all the hotels in this chain that I've tried, are clean and comfortable, with no frills but with everything... More

It is a nice hotel offering basic rooms although the one I got was nothing like on their website. The price I paid was low and the location of the place was great. 10 min walk to Vieux Port, tram and Metro just outside the hotel and it was a 15 min walk from St Charles. The room was clean... More

I booked a two nights’ stay at a BB Hotel in Marseille. I paid for the hotel using BB hotel’s website under a special offer (no cancellation or changes). I understood this, but did not consider that SNCF employees were going to have a strike. I contacted the hotel a couple of days before the strike to see if I... More

We got what we paid for with this hotel. On a last minute trip to Marseille, we decided to spend our money on bouillabaisse rather than lodging. It's more like a dorm room with no decor, but the bed wasn't terrible and the room was generally clean. It's not in the best area, but it's less than a minute walk... More

I made a reservation at this hotel for one night for 2 rooms and stayed there because we were taking a cruise from Marseille the next day. They couldn’t find my reservations then told me that I cancelled my reservation!! I NEVER cancelled my reservations. Then they said that they only had ONE room that 2 couples had to share!!... More

B&B La Joliette is a very new budget hotel in the Euromediterranee Area, the area used to be derelict harbour buildings but has undergone a massive reconstruction in the last ten years and is now a bright quarter with many conference and concertvenues. The old port and the St Charles TGV-station are still within walking distance, but public transport in... More

A French friend recommended me this BB inn, so I didnt bother to search around. The room is very basic, simple and small, as expected. Fortunately, its clean too, shower worked well. Do not expect mush as for the price you pay. Location is actually not bad at all, 2 metro stops to train station, and easy transfer from metro... More

If you arrive by train, La Joliette Metro station is only two stops away from Gare Saint Charles and a very short walk from this relatively new hotel (it's a building site on Google street view!) Modern design, uncluttered, comfortable bed, air conditioning and free wi fi (but time limited so you have to repeat log in after a while,... More

Stayed in the hotel during off-season, so prices were OK. The hotel is easily accessible from the train station (if connecting from the airport) or one can take the 1 tube stop ride, it's just over the corner. Also close walking distance to the old harbour and shopping centre of Marseille. Eventhough it's close to the hospital not much noise... More
