The location of this hotel is wonderful. We were within walking distance of any activities that we had chosen to do. There are many, many places to eat and we enjoyed all the different places that we tried. The hotel room was a decent size and very nicely appointed...great roomy shower. Everything was very clean. I would stay there again

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Given the location, it was very quiet. We had an attic room which was more than adequate. My only complaint (and this is true for many hotels in France) was that the only covering was a down comforter. Way too much for a summer night, and no top sheet to use instead. The... More

Our rooms, although a trifle on the small side, were well appointed and, being on the top floor, we had excellent views. The entrance to the hotel is rather cramped, but that matters little, given the high standard of the rooms.

excellent location, friendly and helpful staff, simple but clean accomodation, noise early in the morning - windows have to be closed proposal - a fridge in the room would be fine (drinks start to boil during the hot season)

The room was very large and modern with small balconies overlooking the port. It is located in a busy part of town and quite hard to find through the GPS. It also didnt help that there were road closures on at the time of our visit. It is in a very touristy area but near to the main landmarks. The... More

We were not familiar with the chain but will bear it in mind in the future as we found this place highly satisfactory, including breakfast fine, with a great location. Only difficulty we found - not relevant for non-drivers - was driving/parking up close; not allowed to drive up in front of hotel on Canebiere for drop off or pick... More

During our tour of France, we stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting the south coast. On arrival, the staff were very friendly and helpful. However, when we arrived in the room we immediately noticed that the light switch connection was very poor causing the lights to go on and off. The lady on reception admitted that there is a... More

`A comfortable hotel with a great location, metres from the Vieux Port. Friendly staff, clean rooms, balcony with a view of the Port, and good breakfast choice all make this a fantastic choice of place to stay in Marseille. Good choice of restaurants nearby and close to all transport - perfect for a short stay. Very good wifi!

This is a very small hotel with fabulous free internet, right on the Port. You can walk everywhere. The staff speaks English. They are extremely helpful arranging anything you need. This is not the Waldorf (I had bed bugs at the Waldorf, which they immediately handled perfectly) but the room is clean, a few knat like bugs coming in from... More
