Ibis Budget Marseille Vieux Port
Ranked #48 of 131 Hotels in Marseille
Reviewed September 18, 2013

There are two reasons to come to this hotel: the location (it's perfect) and the price -this being an Ibis budget hotel, it is very cheap.
The triple room was very basic without a wardrobe or a telephone. The clealiness of the bathroom was also basic, and the first morning it flooded (the water came into the bedroom as well). We notified the reception and it was fixed by the evening.
Bottom line: if you are traveling on a low budget and you only plan to sleep there, then it's OK. I wouldn't recommend it to a solo traveler (especially a woman).

super location but suffers from meanness as far as what is supplied in the bedrooms.
the room felt as if you were in a hospital of boarding school. nothing but the bare minimum is supplied. such as something to put your soap bar on when in the shower.

Room Tip: get a room on the upper floor and away form lift well or you will get the noise from the guests goin...

Right next to the vieux porte the hotel is really in prime location.

I usually stay in the more upmarket brands of Accor or similar chains so don't have the comparison, but I thought the building and rooms were ok for the price.

Room was small but clean, with TV and desk, but no wardrobe and missing a bit of charme.

Nevertheless a good hotel for budget travellers I think.

Staff was a bit unfriendly and sometimes annoyed but I guess that's just French.

No surprises here-- clean and perfectly located and of course and nice price. We stayed in the family room and it was comfortable for all 4 of us. Nothing fancy but that is what we wanted. You will not go wrong if you want to be comfortable and in a nice location for seeing Marseille.

So this is an Ibis Budget hotel, what used to be the Etap hostels. The place has the charm of a youth hostel and you can tell that you have arrived in the league of budget hotels. But that's exactly why you pick it! It is cheap, clean and has a fantastic location: Walk to the old port in less than five minutes.
Parking is available in the basement: This is an adventure in itself, as you will have to drive your car into an elevator and then navigate through a hot, sticky, and really tiny garage. Only try this with a compact car!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the upper floors. The lower floors (in the annex building) have no view whatsoever...
