“Not the worst ever. But definitely not the best.”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

This hotel was dirty but Marseille doesn't offer a whole lot in terms of accommodation unless you want to spend Ritz-prices on something. The room was old, small, and bare minimum but it was cheap, what could you expect. The lobby is deceptively nice in comparison to the rest of the building. I don't think smoking is allowed but it sure smelled like it. nice TVs though, so I guess that's something.

Stayed March 2012, traveled with friends

Etap Hotel in Marseille is rather basic but very well thought through hotel. The room is small but very clean and up to date. The linen were clean and bathroom spotless. The location couldn't be better...city center is just a few steps away, port with it's lovely markets is across the street and the big shopping mall is just a few blocks away. And of course free wifi that is so convenient during travels. The only comment I would add is the noise at night. If you like to sleep with a window open this might be a difficult night. Nevertheless I would definitively stay there again!

The hotel had recently been refurbished and is clean and tastefully decorated. Staff were friendly and helpful and the location is great for tourists - a short walk from the Old Port and the Metro.

Rooms overlooking the square can be a bit noisy and you need to bring a hairdrier!

Service - good.
Value - excellent, we got a cheap deal online.
Sleep Quality - excellent. Comfortable beds with quiet rooms.
Cleanliness - fine.
Location - a couple of minutes walk to Vieux Port and the metro station.
Rooms - the renovated rooms had a nice, simple design with everything we needed. Large TV available. Rooms were a bit stuffy so had to open the windows. Reception lobby had a funny smell but you don't pass through there for long.

Travel tips - be careful about personal belongings at Marseille station, especially at night. Take a daytrip to Aix-En-Provence (45 mins bus trip from Marseille station).

Overall impression - good, comfortable basic rooms to stay at for a couple of days. Will stay here again in the future if we can get a similar online deal.

Extremely well located chain hotel right next to the Vieux Port - the epicentre of Marseille fo the tourist. Decent accommodation and value. I always stay here when I visit Marseille for leisure. Convenient parking nearby (about €10 per day)

Cheap room in a perfect location. Nothing fancy but the room was clean and looked fresh. Excellent value!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the old building
