Have you ever wanted to pay for first and fly economy? Well here is your chance with a hotel! We booked the hotel for the end of our cycle trip. We even quit the hotel in our package a day early, lost the night and paid to stay at the Sofitel....why...because on the APP it looked fab. Lovely swimming pool,... More

A short break to Marseille in a luxury hotel, what could be wrong? The hotel in places is looking tired but that aside the location is perfect with wonderful views of the harbour from our room and the view from the panoramic restaurant is wonderful. Be sure to have breakfast here. Unfortunately several minor things marred our stay. On arrival... More

Location is obviously the main attraction point of this hotel. Situated superbly at the old marina - as the name suggests - the view is marvellous from most rooms and terraces. 7th floor bar, adjacent restaurant and 3rd floor bistro/bar are extremely comfortable to spend a night out(doors) sipping your martini or whatever. I tried the bistro which had superb... More

I visited Marseille for a special occasion and stayed 3 nights. Already before the stay, the staff was very efficient in organizing my special requests. We have then received a very warm welcome from the front office manager Marine and the chef concierge Djamila. Our room was beautiful and had an excellent view. Definitely book a room with the view... More

The Sofitel Vieux-Port is lovely overall, but there are many details that bring the level of luxury down considerably. It is absolutely, very overpriced for the value, unless you are finding a great deal online, under 250 euros per night I'd say, spend your money elsewhere. The welcome and front desk were top-notch, as is the service in the Carre... More

I thought the location was excellent and the size of the room was great .. But that's about it. The pool area was tiny and shared with a Novotel next door. Slightly odd I thought as the Sofitel says it's a 5 star hotel. The restaurant next to the pool was odd. Service was slow, food was awful ( anyone... More

It is a very modern hotel, with a splendid localization and view of the port, the city ans the forts. The bar is a special atraction as well as the restaurant. Very good service with a attentive staff.

Stayed one night at Sofitel on our way to south of France and one night in Intercontinental. By far, Sofitel is the best. The view over the port is amazing. Breakfast on the roof is so nice and pleasant. Above all, service is remarkable: check in, concierge, check out...just perfect!

I stayed here mid July and booked through Expedia. I paid for a room with a view of the water. Unfortunately, when I arrived I was told since I booked through Expedia I would be unable to have that room as they gave all those away. So instead I was put into a room with the view of the roof....

...in an excellent location. See that you get a room with a view across the Vieux Port (which you can also enjoy over breakfast). Rooms are the usual Sofitel standard, service is the usual French standard, often a bit complicated in their approach. Breakfast service pretty bad, you´d need to speak French to get things moving there.
