Reviewed June 2, 2012

This is the second time we have stayed at this location last year and again late April. It is just beside the main square outisde the train station for Marseille. A regional bus station is also attached to the train station. We met our river cruise transfer bus just outside the door.
Staff are fluently bilingual and eager to help. There is a bar on the main floor and restaurant with a breakfast hot and cold buffet for approx. 8 Euros
Rooms are small but adequate and the hotel is clean and tourist style, perfect for an overnight or short stay
The old port or Vieux Port as it is called is down the steps and about a 10-15 minute walk

This Ibis is at a very nice location, which is just 100m away from the exit/entrance of station's platform A. But also because it's closed to the train station, it's very noisy especially when every other things quite down at night. Our room is right next to the station's loading decks (cargo, cars and etc). You can hear workers shouting, station broadcasting and stuff loading every minutes except between 12am - 6am. Wait a minute, that's my sleeping hours...

There are a couple other hotels next to station but in the 'right' side of the station. But considered it's price and friendly staff, I recommend this hotel if you have no problem sleeping under a not so quite environment.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms face the Marseille Port.

This hotel was exactly what we needed.
Immediately next to the train station (an enormous plus)
50m from th Avis car rental place.
Not expensive, with a very good buffet breakfast.

It was also what I expected.
Small, really small. Thin towels. Not close to the nicer areas of Marseille.
But you can't always have everything.

It served the purpose , but I was glad it was only for 1 night.

Stayed: April 2012

This Ibis surely is different from others. The only good thing about it is it`s location an polite staff. The is very very little like a cage. Very old and not so clean. Same is the bathroom little an not clean. The lamp in our bathroon didn`t work from the first day and we had to tell them 4 times and got help on the last day of our visit. They compensated it with paying us back one night. The breakfast is nice.

I really enjoyed my stay in Ibis. People were really nice! The room was big, very clean and had a great view! The breakfast was also very good, plenty of options to choose. The only bad point I would mention is the dinner. I asked for a burger and he served me an over-cooked burger, at the first sight it looked well presented but once u turn it upside down it was all black..yuck! The dessert was really good, i would recommend the caramel one!

Room Tip: The last floor has the best rooms :)

i think we should really put this hotel in a very limited free wireless internet category.what 200 mb will take you ? you may be able to watch youtube for 15 minutes.marseille is not very safe city and gare st charles area is especially not safe at all for walking at night by your own , internet is really necessary entertainment at night .the french still thinking that everybody understands and speaks french so there is no english tv available.the receptionist will give you more 200 mb vouchers if you ask but you will lost the interest doing internet after typing at least 15 combinations of letter and numbers for user name and passwords for every vouchers.
