Stayed at the suite on the 5th floor. The view of the old port and Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde on the hill is spectacular. Silva and Eric at the reception were very friendly. Eric showed great care for my satisfaction, offering me a suite choice. The parking is 2 blocks away. The suite was very nice, and spacious, the toilette was separate from the bathroom, the bathroom had a separate shower and bath tab.

We had a good one night stay in this stylish and colourful hotel. We booked a bed and breakfast rate which was very good value. We had a balcony with chairs and a table overlooking the port and with a great view of the Basilica. Despite its position on the busy quay it was quiet at night and we slept well. The buffet breakfast is particularly good. A shout out to the very cheerful guy on the front desk who greeted us and was very helpful despite being super busy - he seemed to be the only person on the desk! Our room was quite small but would be fine for a couple of nights.

We stayed 4 nights in a junior suite. The suite was excellent - a lovely large room with a separate dressing area and a large bathroom with double sinks, a bath and a separate shower. The toliet was also in a separate room. The room had a sofa and a large TV (although could only get French channels on it so not a lot of use to us). The bed was huge and extremely comfortable. The room has a balcony with table and chairs and the most fantastic view across the harbour to Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica on the hill opposite. The wifi was good but annoyingly you have to keep logging into it. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The location of the hotel is perfect as the Vieux Port area is the best place to be in Marseille. Everything of interest is within easy reach. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and all spoke English. We did not have the breakfast as it is €20 extra and we usually skip breakfast anyway. We also did not try the restaurant as there are many great restaurants to try in the area, but it looked very nice.

Great view. Provides car service between hotel and airport. Did not have breakfast there. Many restaurants nearby, as you on right across from the water. We only stayed one night but it was comfortable and within walking distance to many restaurants and shops.

The location and view was amazing. However, the hotel itself was old and disappointing. Some staff members were nice and some rude. Our shower backed up after the first night and we had water spilling out. Breakfast was okay.

Beautiful location directly on the port side. Amazing views over the whole harbour, very little traffic goes past. Convenient to walk to La Panier. Many bars and restaurant’s are close by. The staff were excellent, including phoning to book us a reservation at a pool club as we had difficulties with French translation. Our room was 301 and had an amazing harbour view

This hotel has a cool retro vibe and a brilliant location at the old port. Best part though is the views of Marseille from the balcony, which are stunning. I think every room has a balcony overlooking the harbour. Service was polite, if not particularly warm, and breakfast was nice. Didn't try it for dinner but there are tons of nice restaurants nearby.
