Ideally located at the heart of France's oldest port city, this hotel is a stopover between the Riviera, the Camargue and Lubéron,and a short boat ride away from the Château d'If on its famous island setting and the Calanques. Near La Canebière, the hotel offers an exceptional view over the Vieux-Port. In the evenings, relax in the cozy atmosphere of the Dantès Skylounge.

When you have the best location overlooking the harbor, a nice upgrade to a room with large terrace, a young and energetic team and you feel warmly welcome everywhere in the hotel you just can't go wrong. Don't look for other options in Marseille, Sofitel is THE property to stay. Thank you to Paul the GM and his team !

I spent a day during my business trip amd enjoyed very much the attention and care from the staff. Accommodation is impressive, large enough size to feel home. I especially took great advantage of Spa therapists skills for relaxing my body before continuing my trip. I am also gourmet oriented and breakfast is at the state of the art. Highly recommending for solo even for couple for having retreat quality time at Sofitel Marseille. Try The Spa and their special oils ! Johan L, Biarritz, France

I spent three nights here pre-covid and was very very happy with my choice. First class welcome as I'm ALL Platinum. Great welcome cocktails and fantastic upgraded room with excellent harbour view. Huge bathroom with powerful raindrop shower. Luxury Lanvin bathroom amenities as well. Breakfast was extremely good. Easily the best breakfast I ever had anywhere in France. Fresh melt in your mouth croissants as well. Huge buffet spread. Excellent selection of fresh juices and even a crepe machine! I was in heaven. Thank you for the excellent stay and I will definitely be back!

After reading some negative reviews my hopes were not too high for this stay in Marseilles at The Sofitel! However I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room, just a simple double bedroom with no view but all was in good order nothing old or tatty! The bed was very comfy and the linens were good quality. The Hermes soaps etc will always get a vote from me, nice fluffy quality towels as well. The tea selection was poor, we are English we like tea in the morning! The first morning only coffee and the 2nd morning lemon verbena herbal tea ! A first works problem! Due to Covid you need to book a slot at the pool which I just say is annoying and due to this we did not use - the sun also leaves the pool quite early - so if you are thinking of hanging by the pool all day think again! Saying that you are in Marseilles a FANTASTIC city get out and enjoy it! We arrived by car and did find it strange that a 5 star hotel does not have a bell boy or even valet parking. It would have been nice to have been greeted and directed to the car park by someone instead of having to run in - queue up to be told how and where to park. Staff were all very friendly - especially Lucas who checked us in. Location is great - a short walk to the port or up the hill to The Corniche. A good quality option when staying in Marseilles
