Decidedly luxurious. We had just had a few days in an M Gallery hotel in Aix which is also part of the Accor empire, so we were expecting a step up in quality and we were not disappointed. Wonderfully decorated and furnished with really nice rooms. The view in to the old port is great, especially from the top floor... More

We only stayed briefly in Marseille, but we are so glad we chose the Sofitel Marseille Vieux-Port! On the old harbor, the hotel maximizes its stunning views with guest rooms, lovely outdoor cafe, and top floor restaurant that gaze out on the pleasure boats moving in and out, surrounded by ancient fortresses that are beautifully floodlit at night. The public... More

Wow, I am not quite sure where any of the negative reviews came from. This hotel is literally the nicest hotel in Marseille. Our tour guide even said it was the #1 in Marseille!!! Nothing to make me think otherwise. The room was outstanding. Super clean and very large. The view from the room was unbelievable. The hotel staff was... More

Marseille has changed a lot since being the cultural capitol of Europe...and some Hotels did it as well. The SOFITEL gave us a very warm welcome and the feeling of being more than welcome lasted over the four days of our trip. The rooms are structured in clever way, the bathrooms are spacy and the view over the old harbor... More

My trip to Marseille was undertaken with a view to see beautiful things, places and experiences. A few days of relaxation and fine food and wine in Marseille didn't disappoint. A perfect place to stay at a reasonable charge was the Sofitel Marseille Vieux Port. The Sofitel overlooks the mouth of the Vieux Port looking back to the centre of... More

Stayed for three nights and couldn't have been more pleased with the facility and personnel. Everything in immaculate condition and with all the amenities and comforts one expects in a first class hotel. We had a good sized room with a port view + balcony - Definitely worth the $. Pool area and bar nice and easily accessible. Did not... More

Sadly for Sofitel, the wonderful welcome from the Concierge, who whisked our bags off in one direction, our car in another, was promptly totally spoilt by what may just be the worst check in I've ever encountered. One girl, utterly blocked by a couple of guests who seemed to be complaining about something, but the queue just built up and... More

These days, most of us would think that to be a jolly good idea, but, unfortunately, it’s only in the sense that Kennedy was a doughnut when he proclaimed “Ich bin ein Berliner.” The "financiers verts", as they are labelled among the breakfast buffet, are actually a kind of muffin, made with green tea powder, and consuming them does nothing...

So, I was in Marseille just for a few days, while I waited for my cruise ship to arrive in port. First, this airport is about a $50 cab ride away from the airport. You could take other transportation. I believe there's a bus or something like that that's way more economical, but I had 2 large, heavy suitcases that... More

I stayee at the Vieux Port Sofitel for four days.The location is the best in Marseille: on a hill-top at the entrance of the yacht port.You can ask for a room with sea-view or garden view. Even if you take the one with garden view,you will enjoy a beautiful port view from the glass -walled restaurant on the top floor,... More
