We booked two nights at this Kyriad at the end of a two-week trip to France, mostly driving through Provence. We lucked out, because being mostly a business hotel about 10 minutes drive from the airport, they offer their rooms fairly cheap during weekends, when the hotel is pretty empty.
We had stayed at a Kyriad in Avignon that had previously been a Holiday Inn Express, so our expectations were high. Unfortunately, it was not nearly the same quality. Each Kyriad is individually owned, and I believe they pay a fee to use the Kyriad name. This had more the feel of a motel than a hotel. The receptionist was very sweet and check in was easy. There were no elevators, so we had to carry our bags (unassisted) up three flights of stairs.
The place is in dire need of refurbishment (humidity spots on the walls, some peeling paint, stains on the carpets) but I can't totally say it's run down. The room was very spacious and clean. We supposedly had a smoke-less room, but it smelled as though the previous guest smoked like a chimney. When we asked to switch to another triple room, they did their best, but they only had one other room our size and it was already taken. We simply opened the window for a couple of hours and most of the smoke odor was gone.
The hotel is perfect for anyone who has an early morning flight as we did. We also had to return our rental car, so we didn't want to waste any time driving through the city to get to the airport. We even made a dry run the day before to make sure we knew were everything was!
If you have a car, it's not too bad to visit Marseille. It was about a 20 minute drive and we were able to spend an entire day on the beach and dining in the city.
One surprise from the hotel came from the hotel restaurant. They offer breakfast for 10 Euros (which we skipped), but we did go down for dinner. We were very impressed by the food. It was delicious! We even requested a special order on the omelette, and it was truly one of the best meals we had while in France, and that's saying something!
If you're looking for luxury, this is not it. If you need a clean place to stay with safe and free parking (it's gated) near the airport, then this is your hotel. Staff is friendly and helpful and rooms are clean and comfortable.
Book for a weekend and you'll get a super cheap rate
