3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Currently completing a twelve-day stay at this property that I used as my base to visit Marseilles, Avignonn, Arles, Casis, and other areas in Provence. The location is excellent and walking distance to most tourist attractions. The staff is courteous and helpful. The hotel caters to French families (mostly) who are on their annual summer vacation. An extensive breakfast buffet is included in the price of the room. There is a very nice swimming pool with a bar and snack facility. The rooms have seen their better days; however, the rooms are clean and well serviced daily.

The hotel was in a great location. The room was ok. Not terribly large but ok. The pool area was quite lovely and my kids loved swimming and playing there. The service at the pool bar was awful though. They were inattentive and it was a struggle to get a beverage. The location was good. Lots of nice stuff near by. Rooms were hot though and we could not open our windows due to a bees nest below it. We talked to front desk about it and they did not care at all.

I stayed in this hotel from 24.-26. may for a bussines meeting. As mentioned by other reviewers, hotel offers a good service for a resonable price. Taxi costed 50 EUR from the airport.
Checking in was fast and kind. Wi-fi is free - thats top! Room was clean, bed comfortable, chair and table to work big enough. But best in this hotel is a magnificient view from the hotel terrace on the Old port. Hotel is 10 - 15 minutes walking from the Port, which is convinient enough. If you are attending a conference at the Palaice du Congress - this is best choice.

this is a tipical novotel with good rate and good service,.
breakfast is really a good one, with scramble eggs, fresh pastries, good coffee etc.
Recommand to spend a bit of time on terrace after breakfast as it is certainly the best view of the old port in town, fantastic.

Room Tip: try to get port view but maybe a bit more expensive, I have no idea.
