I stayed at this hotel only one night, and I have to admit I panicked a little when I realized that there was no elevator. I also held my breath a moment while unlocking my room's door, which had apparently been kicked open recently, to judge by its battered wooden frame. All my doubts melted away, however, as soon as I stepped into the lovely-smelling room with the golden warmth of a Marseille afternoon wafting through the open window and the neat, simple furnishings (including flat screen TV) inviting one to kick back and relax. Although situated right on the picturesque old port, the noise level stayed quite reasonable and at night the view across the port became even more glamorous, with the Notre-Dame de la Garde becoming a spectacular beacon. Just as charming as the room was the bar downstairs, with its terrace overlooking the port. I had cocktails here before dinner and a perfectly correct breakfast before checking out in the morning. The staff was quite nice, I thought. Just keep in mind, however, that this place isn't all that cheap. My one night's accommodation and breakfast ran $172. But in the end I thought it was well worth it.
