Where is the best place to stay in Marseille?

We will visit Marseille on the 25 Sept and staying for 3 nights? We havent book a hotel yet but I am not sure where to choose from Holiday Inn Express near the station or the Hotel Premiere Classe near the City centre? Which one is the best place to stay in terms of location and tourist spot area which is convenient to transport as well. Many Thanks .

The best place would be around the Vieux Port. However, the two location you have chosen have metro stops near by. The Premiere Classe is near Cours Julien, so I would choose that as there are restaurants there within walking distance, and as usual train stations have other types of "commerce" near them!

I would say that the Holiday Inn is very good if you're just staying in MRS for the night and leaving early the following morning, but agree the station area is a bit dodgy, and not that convenient for seeing the city.

Hi James C booked with Premiere Classe as this one is close to the centre and the port area.
