“The lodging we keep thinking about after our trip...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2014

We recently stayed two nights at Casa Ortega, and found the property to be extraordinary... décor unique and appealing; room design efficient and effective (including small desk and cabinet, and good WIFI), clean, and carpet-free (which we greatly prefer); and the location excellent for anyone traveling by train and willing to walk the fascinating multi-cultural neighborhoods to the old port. The hostess is also extraordinary... her recommendations were perfect for our tastes, and her kindness was genuine. We returned this weekend from our 19 days in the south of France, and Casa Ortega is the lodging that we remember with the greatest fondness.

The rooms were excellent as was the continental breakfast. Caroline, the proprietor, was very welcoming and a great source of information on places to visit, in and around Marseille. I would recommend this B&B without any reservation at all.

I've traveled a lot and have very high standards, but Casa Ortega is absolutely INCREDIBLE! My sister and I had to make a last minute booking because of a nightmare traveling day, and we didn't end up getting to the hotel until around 11pm. It was right across the street from the train station (5 minute walk), and Caroline was so so sweet when we got there. She stayed up late to make sure we got in okay, carried our bags up to our room (no elevator), let us leave whatever we needed to downstairs with her, and had an absolutely AMAZING breakfast waiting for us fresh when we woke up in the morning. She spoke almost perfect english as well! The room was incredibly clean, with a very comfortable bed and beautiful shower with a rainfall showerhead. I would stay at this B&B again in a heartbeat!!

I think ownership has recently switched hands and new owner Caroline seems to be keeping the tradition of wonderful hospitality going. Located close to main train station (where bus from airport also comes in) which is convenient although not necessarily prettiest part of town but we felt safe there. 15-20 walk to Vieux Porte and le Panier district or Cours Julien which were the areas we went out in. Great WiFi and decent breakfast. Caroline was always available to offer recommendations and was very accommodating. We arrived earlier than we had said we were going to and no-one was in but a quick phone call and Caroline arrived to let us in. Beautiful room - deep red walls and old leather armchair and fabulous retro features. All in all a wonderful stay.

I went interrailing in july-august 2013, and this place was a definite highlight. The deco is querky and super cool, absolutely first class customer service, highly recommended. Great choice for breakfast and WiFi too. I remember the shower and bed being very luxurious.
