This is a concept hotel whose design aesthetic is a bit bohemian chic with state of the art technology/wired services in the rooms. It is about 20 minutes walk outside the tourist areas of the Vieux Port in a residential area of Marseille. There are ample restaurants and cafes in the vicinity though. The hotel restaurant/bar was hopping each of the three nights (over a weekend) I was in residence and it seems to draw a trendy crowd. The food and drinks were very good and the bartender likes to put on a show a la Tom Cruise in Cocktails. The rooms are clean and spare but will all the needed essentials. It is reasonably priced and a worthwhile destination if you are visiting Marseille and don't want to be in the midst of the touristy areas.
