Very nice place to stay in Marseille I've got 4 people room and the shower that is actually part of the room with no door was a little bit annoying. Also, I've stayed in the top floor as since the hotel didn't have elevator we needed to climb the stairs after a whole day walking. The staff was helpful eventhough... More

There was no locker available for me to use and the wifi was not working, I didn't get help or an apology from the staff for this. The "4 bed" room was actually just a partitioned off part of a massive dorm. I read some bad reviews before I booked but this hostel surpassed my already low expectations! Seriously do... More

My only disappointment was that I couldn't use the internet in my room, although I had signal. It just wouldn't load any pages, I guess the signal was too week. I could use it in the lobby though. The hotel is located 7-8 min away from the Old Port and about 15 min from the Cathedral (walking distance). The rooms... More

I don't know about hotel but I can write something about hostel part. First of all I don't recommend it, it has nothing with hostel, no kitchen, no common room, nothing. On their site and in booking confirmation there's said that they are open 24/24 and no curfew. It's not true, hostel is closed at night. One night we back... More

Having you at the hostel was a total nightmare for the entire staff and for the other travellers. You were completly drunk,extremly noisy,annoying other guests,smoking and starting... More

Very good place! I stayed for just one night but I was received very well! The place is simple but very clean, organized and in a very good localization. The price completely worth it. I hope to get there again!

I stayed 2 nights in Hotel Sylvabelle. The location is fantastic - 1 minute away from the metro and 5 minutes to Vieux Port. The surrounding area is lovely too. The room wasn't that bright but that was purely due to marseille having lots of high buildings. The window was huge and made the room lovely and breezy. The actually... More

This is not a hotel I would recommend to anyone. I know it is only a budget hotel but that is no excuse to be so rude to customers and in my case actually to play a scam on me. This would be improved to some degree if the management would take the time to respond to complaints in some... More

This hotel was in a very pleasant location, within walking distance of the old port area, which was where we wanted to be, given that we only had 2 nights there. It was spotlessly clean, bright and airy. Reception were welcoming and helpful.

I stayed here for a couple of nights with 2 other friends. The hotel is awesome and the receptionists were very friendly. The rooms are clean, the food is good and the drawing room is cozy. Also, we had made a mistake on our part due to which 40 Euro had been subtracted from our amount to the Hotel's account.... More
