Stayed at Le Ryad in a mini suite for two nights and it has a lot going for it as a boutique hotel: the room was incredibly spacious, very bright and clean and beautifully designed (and the bed very soft and comfortable!); the service was impeccable; the garden in the back was a lovely and peaceful place to enjoy coffee and breakfast and plan out the day ahead. It's also competitively priced and excellent value for the $ -- a similar hotel and room in Paris would easily cost 3X as much. I recommend it highly for the adventurous, urban traveller looking for a creative, unique and cool place to stay in Marseille.
As other reviewers have noted, some things to bear in mind are the lack of elevator (if you have several heavy suitcases like we did, be forewarned -- it's a long haul up to the 3rd floor!), no parking and the fact that, while the hotel is centrally located (and Marseille has something of a reputation for being a little rough around the edges), the street the hotel is located on is on the dodgy side and there are several 'ladies of the night' who reside directly across the street and hang out on the walk-up there all day and night long. This is probably not a great hotel choice for families or older / more traditional types who might find this more disconcerting than we did as a twenty/thirty-something couple who live in a similarly trendy-but-urban neighbourhood in a major metropolis.
