Couldn't fault anything about Alex Hotel. Located literally right across the road from Marseilles St Charles station, it took literally 1 minute to get there once we got off the train. It is also only a short walk down to the port and other areas of note. We did not need a taxi to get anywhere. We were greeted by friendly staff. The rooms, although not very large, were adequate. Everything had a touch of class about it. The scents in the bathroom. Artwork on the walls. The beds were comfy. The aricon worked a treat. Rooms have balconies. The best part was the buffet breakfast. There is a chef that will also make you frnch toast, omelettes, pancakes etc at your request. I would definitely go back. Thanks to all the staff :)

Dear Guest ! How nice to read such a your lovely review! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience at ALEX Hotel & Spa! It is always rewarding to have happy guests and to know they enjoy our hotel as much as we enjoyed designing, decorating it and working daily on making you comfortable - with AC working 24/7, especially with the ongoing heatwave. All our staff is dedicated to sharing with you their tips, places and favorites. I will share your kindest comments with our chef who cooked you our French toast with orange blossom flavour or our Omelette with goat cheese and honey. I'm sure you enjoyed sipping your tea or coffee outside in our inner courtyard, under the jasmine trees. Next time we have the pleasure of welcoming you, try our SPA, make yourself a treat by booking a Massage with our practitioner, have a cocktail on our Lounge-Bar terrace. Anyway, thank you again for staying at Alex Hôtel & Spa. Kind regards, The Hotel Manager and the entire ALEX Hotel & Spa team !

Excellent location next to the main train station. I was provided with a room on the side of the yard. Large, clean air conditioned and almost brand new (room 102) I only regret there is no package with breakfast included. Nice and friendly service. Good breakfast. Waking distance to the port and downtown. Perfect choice with this small boutique style hotel !

My travel buddy and I arrived close to 9 pm after a day dealing with travel difficulties. The front desk staff were so kind and helpful in checking us in. And, as they had let us know about the small lounge area, we repaired there for some wine and a cheese plate. Lo and behold, there was a small terrace where we could unwind with our food and drink and enjoy looking at the laden apricot tree a short distance away. The room itself was clean, modern, and the bath was huge by European standards. The hotel was maybe a fifteen minute walk to the old port. Not a lot of restaurants close by, but one on the corner that had terrific food. We were only there two nights but had a great experience.

Dear Guests, Thank you so much for your lovely comments I will share with all my staff. It is our daily and heartfelt routine to satisfy you all the way and your feedback is highly appreciated! I read that you enjoyed the comfort of our Junior Suite (a bedroom and a living-room area with a balcony overlooking our inner courtyard). Now that you've found a place where to drop your luggage and rest your feet, I hope you will schedule another visit to Marseille and take the time to see all its wonders (the Calanques, the Corniche, the picturesque Panier district and the small and lovely fisherman's port Le Vallon des Auffes, just to mention a few of our attractions). As you must have noticed, all our staff is genuinely interested in sharing its knowledge of the city and its surroundings, I'm sure they will surprise you with more tips next time. Until then, thank you again for visiting us, Kind regards, The Hotel Manager and the entire ALEX Hotel & Spa team

We had a room on the 4th floor with a lovely view. The room was quiet, clean and very comfortable. Only issue was that there was no soap in the shower and water pressure not great. Buffer breakfast was average. They don’t replenish things like croissants and had basic sliced brown bread. For 14 euros per person is was reasonable for what you get. Had a massage and used the spa which was amazing. The staff at reception were very helpful, booked a nice restaurant for us and recommended a good hairdresser.

Dear Christie, Thank you for taking he time to share you experience on Tripadvisor and for writing such nice comments. I must however reply about the breakfast: of course we replenish all the products every time they need replenishing. When you had breakfast, you noticed all the tasty products at your hand and helped yourself, while the croissants and bread were in the oven and would be in your plates any minute : you indeed declined our Chef's offer when she proposed you hot croissants from the oven. The room you occupied overlooks our inner courtyard and has a lovely view over the city's roofs. All our bathrooms have soap, you may not have found hard soap for we offer a soap dispenser with Yves Rocher product. I'm sure if you had asked us about it, we would have given you a satisfying answer. On the other hand, I'm very glad you enjoyed our Spa (steam room, sauna, sensorial shower, relaxing area with complimentary tea) and the talent of our practitioner for an hour long massage ! I will share your nice comments on the staff who is always happy to help you find the restaurant that meets your tastes. I hope we'll have the pleasure of welcoming you again for your next visit in our beautiful city of Marseille. Until then, Kind regards The Hotel Manager and the entire ALEX Hotel & Spa team
