The hotel is just below the steps from the railway station. The street is very busy with a lot of eateries and the Vieux-Port is 10 minutes away. However it was a bit dodgy to walk to the hotel at night as the streets seem very different at that time. Staff is very friendly and breakfast was very substantial.

Clean and cheap hotel no more than 5 minutes walking from city centre or Vieux-Port. Vicinity of St.Georges rail station (beware there´s a very big stairs) with a nice variety of good restaurants and brasseries. The room was very small but OK for a short stay. Free wifi avaliable. Breakfast very tasteful in Ibis style. I reccommend it.

Stayed here for 5 nights while attending a conference at the l'Université d'Aix-Marseille. The rooms and hotel were quite clean and modern, and the staff were friendly. The snacking menu, useful for the night you arrive and don't have time to find somewhere to eat, is not that great as from what I saw is a choice of reheated frozen... More

Great little hotel. Clean, great staff and service. Just down the corner from the main train station for rail travelers 5-10 walk to harbour and all sites. Real value this place. Friendly, quiet, clean and comfortable. I will return here.

I'm not kidding, this place is steps from the TVG in Marseille France. Great place to stay, clean and convenient to shops and restaurants. Take a walk around and explore the area there's lots of interesting places to sample. Has breakfast for an extra 10 euros a day.

Travelling solo, I didn't know about the metro exit to the road, so took a long walk around the station to avoid the stairs..hotel was so close to the station, a bonus. I had asked for a "quiet" room and got one ,well presented, clean...I bought breakfast one morning , it was plentiful but expensive...so many other places to eat.... More

A modernised cleanly presented hotel in a great location at the base of the magnificent staircase leading to the railway station. Our room was small but comfortable with an excellent bathroom. We looked out over the street & had 2 small balconies-- it was so quiet we even slept through a thunder storm. Breakfast was good. There is an excellent... More

Excellent hotel, near the main railway station. At the beginning of the Boulevard which starts at the bottom of the imposing stairs that connect the railway station with the city (you can use the escalators leading to the Metro, instead of the stairs, especially useful if you are carrying heavy luggage). Convenient, clean, offering breakfast (though if it is not... More

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Balladins, which is located about 2 minutes' walk from the train station in Marseille and about 10-15 minutes walk from the port area. The hotel itself looks quite small from its street-facing facade, but inside it's spotlessly clean, decorated in an inviting, modern style and although it's a bit... More
