“Not too good...”
Reviewed July 26, 2007

My wife and I stayed at this hotel from May 18th until the 21st of this year. The location, although away from the action (Vieux Port), is ok. The metro station is just 5 minutes from the hotel (walking). There are plenty of little pattiseries and restaurants closed by. Le Prado is a very nice residential area, and you can go for a stroll at any time (very safe to walk at almost all times). But aside from the location, the hotel is not really nice. For the price you pay there, you can get something better closer to the Vieux Port or within the Le Prado neighborhood. The aspect of the hotel is not good. I would say it looks dirty and somewhat wore out (it needs repairment quickly). The room is small, but it has a fairly big bathroom (France standards). The hallway is very dirty and it stinks like hell!!
Personnel is ok, they make an effort to speak to you in English and they do not mind talking to you in French, which is fine taking into consideration that I am a tourist with a very chapy French.
Breakfast is very very good (this is the best of the hotel) and is complimentary (better yet).
I wouldn´t recommend anyone staying at this hotel. Try to find something else.
Marseille is a very special city of France. I am sure you will find something else better.
