“Hotel Closed Down”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2009

I was pretty surprised to arrive at the hotel in the middle of the night to see it had closed down. I had reserved earlier and had received a booking confirmation. The door had been bricked up, when I arrived. It was not fun at all to try and find an alternative hotel in the middle of the holiday season in France.

This hotel is just off the main street to the harbor, but that is the only good thing about it. It was dingy, dirty, and we had a bad nights sleep because we felt uncomfortable sleeping there.

It was a good price for our budget, but in the end we wished we had splurged for something nicer. We will not stay here again.

Just a few blocks from the Vieux Port heart of Marseille, this place is all about location. The room was clean and perfectly acceptable -- although not special. There's currently construction going on -- no noise but there was scaffolding over the windows. There was some street noise, but not too bad.

If you need nothing but a place to lay your weary head, then this is the place for you. It was clean enough but only just. Everything is quite worn but we survived. Much like city camping. The pillows were like bags of fake cotton balls.
My suggestion, drink lots of wine with the boullibaise at the harbour then it won't matter a tot! You won't have far to meander to your bed.
I would reccommend if you're going for a wild weekend but not a romantic getaway.

I stayed at HM Hotel for one night only and was a bit worried as it is a two stars in a rough port city, but it was absolutely great.
Small room with all basic facilities, clean and quiet, fantastic location right in the centre of Marseille, simple breakfast and friendly staff.

It is excellent value for money and I think it is perfect for a short stay or a city break. It is one of the best two stars I have ever been

I just came back from marseille and had booked originally for four nights but had to leave after two nights as it was difficult with two kids going up and down the spiral staircase. The hotel staff were very nice and friendly I have to give them that.This is the perfect hotel if your a bunch of lads looking for somewhere to just sleep at night. As for Marseille i wouldn't bother visiting as first of all there is not much there to see anything that there is to see can be covered in maximum two days or one day if you want to do a quick tour using the train ride from the viuex port which costs a bargain 6 euro adult and 3 for kids. Also be warned things are so expensive here it will turn out to be a expensive holiday as i found out. In example a large meal at McDonalds will set you back nearly £8.00 so be prepared. There was an excellent pizzeria called Venizia Pizzeria which does a oven baked pizza, four of us ate for under £40. There is an Indian restuarant called the Jaipur by the viuex port, I can safely say it is the worst indian food i have had in my life, and you are looking at £25 per head upwards in there so be warned it is not worthit. Just wait till you get to the UK where the best Indian restuarants in the world are.

Was not impressed with this hotel in the slightest. It cost 80 euros for one night which considering the hotels location and its services is appaling. It's located on a street, which according to our timeout's flight free europe book, is reknowned for its muggings and violent crimes. To make matters worse, the view from our window was of polythene and dried cement from the building works on the hotel at our time of stay. I realise that these things have to be done, but when you're woken up by said builders at quarter to seven in the morning, it really does make you feel like you have been well and truly mugged.
