We arrived at the hotel and a very pleasant gentleman greeted us at the reception. He spoke perfect English which was great as I am self conscious about my French. He was very helpful and told us the reception is available on a 24 hour basis and that they can assist with whatever we needed, including calling restaurants for us.... More

We spent 2 nights in a superior room which was opened recently. It was very nice and clean. The aircon could not be turned on because it was on hitting so it was a bit warm and without air at night so we opened the window. The bathroom is just on the side of the bed, it is also nice... More

Great location, surprisingly quiet but at the centre of everything. OK so there's been a bit of renovation, but I had a recently modernized superior double room & it was fine. Modern bathroom, lashings of hot water, good WiFi & comfy bed. Helpful staff, I didn't bother with breakfast. Booked through Expedia & cheaper than direct. Would recommend & re-visit.

My short stay at Carre Vieux Port was ideal because the hotel is conveniently located near Vieux Port tube station, the port itself and all the restaurants & shops. Staff is friendly & helpful. You definitively want to go there to enjoy Marseille at its fullest!!

It is surprisingly quiet considering it is so close to all the action around the port. The staff are helpful and apologise for the state of the carpets in the public areas. Builders have been carrying out renovations for the past 2 years and have neglected to cover the hallways properly with dust sheets so the carpets have now become... More

After two nights in this conveniently located hotel in the old port in Marseilles, I wished I had made a reservation elsewhere. While the staff were friendly and tried to be super helpful, the condition of the hotel hallways, WiFi challenges, and physically challenging rooms left a lot to be desired. The rooms were small with very little space to... More

We stayed as a family in August and early September. Hotel is located in the city center, minutes away from the waterfront. Lots of cafes and restaurants nearby. Also near to the historic churches, museums and forts of this city. The hotel room was very nice, looks recently renovated, quiet even though it is in the busy city center. The... More

Good location, just round the corner from the old port and 'hotel de ville' metro stop. Really poor part was there are major restorations going on with paint dirt and a very dodgy makeshift stair rail with wooden banisters going to the fifth floor. Work started at 9am and finished at approximately 5pm. Work involved drilling, angle grinders and hammers.... More

A great hotel to stay at in Marseille. The location is perfect and the room was lovely. Only complaint would be that renovations were happening on our levels so the hall area was quite messy and smelly. The best thing about the hotel was the staff. Stephanie in particular was amazingly helpful with advice and recommendations. She really made our... More

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. It was centrally located and near the metro, regular & tour buses, and the ferry. There were restaurants nearby and most of the significant places like La Pharo, Le Panier, and Joliette areas were within walking distance.
