The staff at hotel are excellent - very prompt service.
The area around hotel would make it an ideal location but Marseille is undergoing a huge construction project to be ready for City Of Culture 2013. The roads at the Port and surrounding area are being dug up and the noise is horrendous. Work started at 7am and goes onto around 6pm. I was in Room 208 and you can hear it.
Found hotel difficult to find - maybe near metro but the street sign is hidden by a piece of street furniture (ad sign). As soon as I stepped in to hotel, my heart sank - in my experience if reception is in need of refurbishment it does not bode well on rest of hotel.
I can only talk about room 208 -
I only stayed one night. The room is now in need of refurbishment - bad scuff marks on walls - quite dark and dingy. The furnishings and furniture are dark. Horrible blue carpet (I prefer tiles or some time of hard flooring for hygiene reasons)). WAlls are thin - appeared to be 2 or 3 French girls in room next to ours - and boy where they noisey, but did quieten down after 12pm. Bathroom OK -
Appreciate hotel cannot do anything about construction work - but in view of state of room, would not consider going back.
