“Worst hotel (probably) in the world”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Placed in the worst neighbor of marseille (we even attended a purse snatching just in front of the hotel) it has very old rooms, small, smelly, no air condition (very important in marseille in summer), broken shower, dirty, ridicoulos staff (the owner opened us the door dressed with a bath towel) you can t call hotel a place like this. Stay away from there!

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We got there in the night and it was scary looking. It was difficult to get a hold of the owner to let us in. Luckily we found some gentlemen at a close by fast food place that kept calling and calling until we finally got let in.

We went up about 4 flights of stairs with our packs on and entered a rugged, old room. I slept with all my clothes on.

I guess if you're roughing it, it can work. It had a private bathroom. I only used the toilet.

Location was about 15 min walk from the train station, mind you, we got lost for over an hour after 12am which was not a good impression on us of Marseille.

All in all, if you need somewhere to rest your head, this can work, it was 40EU for the night, which i found a lot.

I would not stay here again.

We were looking for a cheap hotel in Marseille and found "Little Paris"... Very modest room, but don't expect 5-star luxury for such low price. Service was amazing, but you'd better speak French or Arabic to get along.

If you're on a budget, you can try out this hotel.

We booked this hotel for two nights. Our main reason for booking was cost. Granted it was cheap, and Im fully aware that you get what you pay for. I wasn't expecting five star luxury, but this hotel was dreadful. The area is shocking. The rooms at best can be described as poor. Live wires on the wall. On suite means a shower in the corner of the room. Tatty beds and sheets. I felt unsafe here. I wouldn't recommend staying here. Definitely pay a little bit more for somewhere else.

Hotel du Petit Paris is a no-frills hotel near the St. Charles train station in Marseille. My room was clean, relatively quiet, and the staff decent. Don't be scared away by the hotel, it's a solid, safe, value for your money.
