“Something a little bit different”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2010

A charming and relatively successful attempt to create a Provencal idyll in the midst of Marseille's grime. Located on the fringes of La Plaine, the city's up and coming artistic quarter, Un Mas en Ville would never be considered family-friendly or city chic. There are indeed lots of rickety wooden stairs to climb, small, traditional timber beds, rustic bathrooms, basic country breakfasts. don't turn up expecting wi-fi, hairdryers, air-conditioning, irons, lifts: they ain't there. And no, the owners don't speak good English at all and are apologetic about it. But you're in France, aren't you?
Good: decent location for main central sites; lovely, accessible and secluded garden with pool; peace and quiet.
Not so good: cleaning and bin-emptying (absent throughout our four-day stay); breakfasts maybe a bit too basic even for our needs; tiny toilets take some negotiating for anybody over five feet tall.
All in all, not bad. But please don't quibble about rustic simplicity when you've got the internet at home and haven't bothered to even check what you're getting.

When reading previous reports about this hotel I was a little dubious but how wrong were they. Although the staff cannot speak very good english they were very helpful and other fellow travellers were happy to assist. We arrived at the hotel at 12 noon and we were immediately allowed our room (we had prior arranged this via email which is the best way to contact them). We had a two bedroom room which was very clean, with plenty of wardrobe space, ensuite facilities with towels and bathrobes. The hotel has a small pool with sunbathing facilities and is a great place to relax both in the day and evening. The hotel is also very near to the metro and also near to lovely restaurants and 15 minutes to the port. At a cost of 98 euros for 4 people a night it is great value and highly recommended.

This would not be a B&B that I would recommend to anyone. We were not able to get access to the hotel for several hours. We tried to call the hotel many times to let them know that we had arrived. The people answering the phone could not speak, or did not want to try to speak English, The woman on the phone kept hanging up on us. Finally, after several wasted hours, we were able to find a man outside of the building who let us in and showed us to our room. The room was just ok, nothing special. The breakfast was bread and homemade jelly (nothing special here either). Many stairs to climb and no elevator. The hotel is not in a nice or pretty neighborhood. Parking is very far away with no place to unload your luggage. Needless to say, we were not happy staying at this hotel. The good news was that we were only there for one night.
