Very central location. The desk clerks were welcoming. Room pleasant, although lots of hairs and dust from previous guest remained. Hotel safe not available late night through morning. Good bed, shower. Slow room service.

We arrived by car, and there was nowhere to pull up to the hotel, but we found a parking garage several blocks away. So this is not an ideal hotel if coming by car. Then, at the front desk, we were told that the key to the room wouldn't work, so an attendant would have to let us in. So... More

Dear Jack, We are sorry that your stay did not bring you satisfaction. There is a parking, Charles de Gaulle, just across the street and you get 20% discount. The lift is next to the reception, and stairs access to all rooms up to the 6th floor, but the rooms start on the 3rd floor, that's why you have not... More

Just wonderful attentive people. I felt bad that I had this large box that was delivered to the hotel and they had to baby sit it for over a week. The place is right near the port and the view is excellent.

Location...Location...Location! You cannot possibly stay at a better location. This hotel is centrally located by all shops, bars, restaurants at the pier. The hotel staff was very friendly and their wireless internet (included) was "lightning fast!" A must-stay in Marseille!

This hotel is right near the waterfront, easy walking distance to the tourist trolley, subway and bus stops, and great restaurants. My room and bath were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast offered was excellent -- the only eggs for breakfast I had in more than three weeks in France.

We stayed for two nights in this hotel along with another couple on our way to Provence. The room was small but very clean and comfortable!

Location is extremely convenient to the Vieux Port Metro stop. Room size was typical for Europe, but comfortable. Two highlights - fantastic mattress (latex?) and above-average breakfast buffet. Overall a great choice if you're visiting the old port.

We stayed overnight in this waterfront hotel at the end of a trip to Provence. It is a clean, comfortable hotel with accommodating staff. It is across the street from the port fishmarkets and outside entertainment (perhaps spontaneous). It is a short walk to the tourist trolley and easy walking to any number of cafes.
