Very cozy and roomy after staying in Paris. The only downside was that the hotel was far from the city so it takes a while to take the bus and the Metro into Marseille. Also, the bus stops running at about 9:00 at night, so we were forced to walk back one night. This is probably not the best place if you're planning to stay our really late.
Otherwise, the place was very charming and calm. The breakfast, delivered every morning in a basket, was very good and simple. Also, while the staff were rarely around, they weren't too difficult to find if we needed to. Rooms and bathroom were spacious. The staff provided a variety of guidbooks and information regarding activities and restaurants, which we found helpful. Overall a very romantic and enjoyable stay.
