Hotel was booked for us by Railbookers and we had no knowledge of it. For our purposes it is absolutely ideal. I am sure they are far more expensive and pretentious hotels in Marseille, but none that I can see where every room has a balcony view of the Vieux Port looking directly at the hilltop Madonna. Rooms again are...

The location of this hotel is excellent. It is in the heart of the Old Port Area, easy walking distance to upscale shopping, the restaurants, and tourist traps. However, our room was hot and the A/C was not working. We were told they had shut it off, then we were told it was broken. We had fabulous view with a...

Right on the Harbour, La Residence is the perfect location for a holiday in Marseille. The room we had was big enough for two and had a small lounge area attached. The location is near the centre of the main tourist area. Our room had a view of the harbour and the cathedal overlooking Marseille. Exvellent hotel.

I went to this hotel with a group. The staff were helpful; the rooms were well equipped and spotlessly clean. The food was excellent too; breakfast and dinner. I was on a high floor at the front overlooking the harbour; a fabulous view with a nice terrace to sit on and enjoy the sunshine. thoroughly recommended.

There is no doubt that this hotel is in a great location. Situated right at the end of the harbour, close to shopping, restaurants and the city, the views from the balcony are spectacular. We had a 2 bedroom and the bed from the main bedroom looked out onto the harbour. Beautiful during the day or night. There is a...
