The Grand Tonic Hotel is right on the north end corner of the Old Port and is an excellent position for exploring the city and sights. We arrived early in the morning and were able to leave our bags at reception and returned later for check in. Although this place is rather old, it is clean and well maintained. It... More

The beat in this hotel is the localization because is located next to the marine and the downtown villa. You can find next to it a nice parking for 24h and all restaurants with all kind of food. About the hotel it self, we got the a very small and dark room due to the fact that it was faced... More

We saw on the website that it was room only with just a small restaurant attached. Smal foyer, lifts to the rooms, along spacious corridors, rooms reminiscent of the original mansion-house. Very helpful staff. Ideally located for the car-less traveller. Plenty of walks around the Marina to the Fort, Art Galleries, shops and restaurants of all types. We had some... More

Nice clean hotel. Very good breakfast selection for a French hotel. Excellent position overlooking the marina. Staff friendly and helpful. The only thing missing in the hotel was a bar. Would have been nice to relax with a drink before retiring.

I stayed in a room facing the court yard which is probably a bonus both cost wise and definatly noise wise considering the traffic outside.Check in was quick and efficient and I found the room big enough and the bathroom was also big.I wish that during their renovation they would have switched the bath tub to a shower cubicle as...

The hotel is at the Vieux Port, perfect location. That is, if you get a room on the street side... Most rooms are on the back side, so your view could be a big concrete wall, or some laundry hanging out... Rooms have been renovated, and are fine. Still, i find them overpriced, like most of the hotels in Marseille.

I stayed at the Tonic from June 4th through June 6th 2014. I was impressed from the moment I walked in the front door. The check in process was fantastic and the young man at the front desk was so professional. Not only did he check me in promptly he asked if I needed any directions, or any advice on... More
