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

We went to Marseille, having heard of its rejuvenation from old fishing port to city break location. In 2013 it was the European City of Culture, which had sparked the work done to modernise the city. The hotel is in a fantastic area, metres from the Old Port and if you stay in a Superior room, you get a balcony... More

Fantastic location, could not ask for anything better. Great view from the room. Room is small but very clean and bathroom very good. Hotel reception was very friendly and helpful, great recommendations for restaurants. We only stayed one night but it was a lovely stay. Only suggestion is that more pillows could be provided. But still a good hotel, would... More

This is a great place to stay when in Mareille. It is just across from the entrance to the metro (Stop Vieux Port, exit Canabieres). The reception area is very small (only 2 seats) but our room was a very good size as was the bathroom. Apart from the superb location, the staff were so helpful. We stayed during the... More

We stayed for 1 night after retuning our car at the central train station, getting there was very easy, on one of her main streets next to a subway station. The old port is right by the hotel, as well as the main shopping streets, restaurants, cafes etc... The room was very clean, comfortable and inviting. Seems to have been... More

We have stayed at this hotel three times now, twice with our eight-year-old grand-daughter who is a very experienced worldwide traveller, and she thinks the Oceania is first class. This time, our room had an internal door that stuck and would not close properly. We mentioned this as we went out for a walk. When we returned the door had... More

We recently spent 5 nights in this hotel and we're very pleased with the location of the hotel and the great service from all the staff at the hotel, this friendly hotel is ideally situated in the heart of the old port, is a good quality 3 star and has an excellent breakfast, we would recommend this hotel to all.
