Holiday Inn Express Marseille-Saint Charles

Reviewed March 16, 2014

The Holiday Inn Express is directly opposite the main rail and coach station in Marseille - a few metres away

The hotel is modern and has a small business centre

Our receptionist was charming, super-efficient and very helpful

We were upgraded to a room with a terrace - the terrace was very big was flowers growing over the terrace, a small table and chairs and 2 sun-loungers... an excellent sun-trap. The views over Marseille were breathtaking

The bed was comfy with a choice of pillows and the bathroom was very smart and well designed

Breakfast (included) was very good - a choice of cold meats, cheese and cereals but what really was excellent was the very good bread and amazing pain au chocolate

The hotel is on a hill with excellent views of Marseille

An excellent place to stay in Marseille.

Room Tip: The rooms with panoramic view / terrace are not much more expensive but add a lot to your stay - I w...

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express last year at the same time so when I went back to Marseille I decided to stay there again. The hotel is in a great location near the raillway station, very handy if you have an early train to catch or arriving from a late one. They have a really good breakfast bar which is excellent and and a super way to start the day. The room I had was very large by French hotel standards with a well equipped shower/wc ensuite. There are a few restaurants in the area but the hotel is only 10 minute walk to the Vieux Port area.

I was here for four nights. The hotel is in a great location, right across from the train station in a very nice neighborhood. It is within walking distance of shopping and sightseeing if a 10 block walk is not too much for you. There is so much to see and do within 10 blocks. The service at the front desk was wonderful. The breakfast was included with the price of the room and was a good breakfast. The hotel was very clean and well kept.

Room Tip: I had a room that was right on the street but there is not that much traffic on the street at night...

I stayed here with my family in Febuary 2014. Very satisfied with the 3 bedded room and price. Hotel is modern and very clean. Staff are nice and helpful. The location is perfect to arrive or leave Marseille by train since it's to the side of Saint Charles Train Station. It's also very practical for guests arriving from Marseille-Provence Airport by shuttle bus since the bus terminus is across the road in the train station. Vieux Port isjust a short stroll away.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel have lovely sea views

Hotel is very good located, in front of the train station, and easy to access. It has a car parking area, also. The hotel staff is very nice and friendly. Rooms are not so big, but enough space to a short visit. It's a nice and modern hotel.

I stayed here for one night in December 2013. This hotel is in a great location directly across from the train station. It is within walking distance to a couple of restaurants, but it is a little shady if you walk too far and there are homeless people begging in front of the train station stairs. The hotel was a typical Holiday Inn Express, with simple and clean rooms. The only thing about the room that I didn't like was the bathroom, it was impossible to take a shower without getting the whole floor wet. The breakfast was a good selection. The front desk staff was very helpful.

Extremely clean, excellent room, very helpful and friendly staff, fast reliable WiFi, short walk to the Port and a superb breakfast offering. Despite being on a main road, it was very quiet. Would highly recommend, it was one of the best Holiday Inn's I have stayed in.
