We loved this hotel and would certainly return if we come to Marseille again. The staff were very helpful, and it was beautifully clean. We stayed for a week, and it would have been nice to have a lounge where we could meet our friends. Maybe the breakfast room could be uitilised for this?

Right in the heart of the Vieux Port of Marseille. Great location to be where the activity is, great for meeting tours, near the Panier. If you want to spend much time at the waterfront or beach I might make a different choice. the staff was wonderful, sweet and helpful. Rooms were large especially by European standards. The hotel is... More

I was given the 6th floor which looked out onto the vieuw port. It was magnificent. The room was a high standard for the price and the cooked breakfast good value. It was 2 kms from the station. The taxi drivers in the province can be lazy when asked to drive you but as i had been travelling for 30... More

I booked it for the location. Right in the heart of the Vieux Port, near several restarants, great for meeting tours and walk to the Panier district. If you want to go to the beach you will have to get a bike or taxi. Rooms are large by European standards and the entire hotel was very clean. The toilet room... More

Escale Oceania is perfectly located on the corner of the Vieux Port and La Canebiere. We flew into Marseille, took the airport bus to the St. Charles train station and walked 10-15 minutes to the hotel. We walked around the Vieux Port the next morning where we chose to have breakfast and then trekked to visit Notre Dame de la... More

we were in Marseille for a football match and combined it with vacation (4 nights). The hotel is excellently located on the main street La Canabiere at the very front of the Vieux Port. The reception/service and the room were very good. At breakfast, we were missing fresh vegetables (at least tomatos or cucumbers). In other respect, the breakfast was... More

Truly excellent position near the Vieux port with great reception service having good knowledge as well as being friendly and really helpful. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet and our room on the 5th floor was 2 metres from the entrance to the restaurant. Nice but small balcony which provided a birds eye view of the football hooligans but we ourselves... More

We enjoyed a lovely 5 day break last week. My husband and I took Eurostar direct from St Pancras to Marseille which was a specific part of our holiday as we wanted to enjoy seeing the french countryside and have the excitement of getting on the train in London ( in the rain !) and getting off 7 1/2 hours...

Ideal position for being a tourist in Marseille. Perhaps best avoided when England play Russia but I suppose this is not likely to happen again for some time!! Even then the friendly staff ensured it was a tranquil haven
