If you really have to go to Marseille, which I can't in good conscience recommend, this is a good spot to stay. Not far from the train station, though the cab driver may say otherwise, it is right off the old port and near the morning fish market, the Galerie Lafayette, a subway station and several restaurants. The entrance is in a small street (an alley really) where there are sometimes young men hanging out. It feels a bit sketch. You have to climb stairs to the small reception area. The elevator is small, but takes two average sized people and two pieces of luggage (unless you stack them). There is a nice breakfast room, though we did not have breakfast there, as there are several bakeries to choose from, as well as McDonalds (hey!--inexpensive and good tea and coffee) and the grocery store in the Galerie Lafayette nearby. We stayed in a beautiful room, with an Indian/ East Asian theme that had a small balcony over looking the street/alley.
