I got a suite which is very big and good decorated. The view over the sea is absolutely wonderful. I saw the ships going in and out the harbour and looks like scenes in the movie. The best view in Marseille. The restaurant at 7th floor is very good. Should reserve the window view table such that enjoying the view... More

A comfortable hotel with good design that makes the rooms feel larger. Good amenities and bath products. Only negative was that the beds are too soft to be comfortable and wi-fi is so poor its non-existent. If these two last things are important to you this is not the place for you.

First the good things. The best was the staff. They were superb. The concierge spoke perfect English, seemed to know everything and was always helpful and willing to give excellent advice. The receptionists whose English varied but was always good enough worked really hard to please. The location of the hotel was on a hill just outside the old port... More

I stayed for 4 days as part of a conference visit. The hotel is in prime position with sweeping views of the harbour. Many of the rooms have this great view. The location does make it less accessible by public transport, but there is a bus and the nearest subway station is 15 minutes walk. Having said that, this is... More

Best of the hotel is the breakfast. The buffe has everything you would expect and the view from the top floor is fantastic. The fitnesscenter is open 24 h so good but it´s to small. 4 people there and it feels crowded.

French elegant luxury in the magnificent old port of Marseille. Excellent for business and romanti travel. Didn't check the breakfast, unfortunately so no comment on this. Expensive as everything luxurious in France. Especially the bar!

We stayed for three nights at the Sofitel Marseille as part of a longer break to the south of France. It is in a lovely position at the entrance to the port, with a fabulous view from the public areas. We were given a very warm welcome on arrival and generally found the staff polite and efficient. Our classic room... More

Beautiful hotel and amazing service. Spa is great and everything about it is good. If you don't have a car you can walk around 15 minutes from the port to it as it is in the very end of the port or you can take a bus to it which will be faster. I enjoyed my stay there and everything... More

In general this is a good quality hotel: clean, comfortable and with attentive staff. However anyone going there needs to know three things. The gym is very limited. Second, the pool is shared with the adjoining Novotel and was always full, particularly with people putting down towels and then going off for, literally, hours. Staff did nothing to control this....
