Very warm welcome from multi-lingual staff. This little hotel is new, very clean, completely functional, serves a good if limited menu, and provides free shuttle service. Our room was small but so well designed it made no difference. And the price is right! I plan to always stay at the holiday inn, Marseille airport when i have an early departure.

Arrived late in Marseille from 12 hour trip from LA. Used hotel transfer station to call the hotel for their transfer service. The transfer arrived in 5 min! We were checked in, greeted by very friendly and helpful staff and relaxing in our room with hot shower in less than 20 min after we arrived! Breakfast is included too. We will be on our way to discover Provence feeling great! I recommend this hotel to anyone using Marseille, France as gate way for Provence travels.

We stayed here for one night after arriving in Marseille by plane late in the evening. Unfortunately, we were too late for the shuttle bus, however we shared a taxi with another couple, and it was only a short trip (cost 10 euro). The check-in was friendly and professional (and staff could speak English). Our room was very new and spotlessly clean. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable - the best I have ever had! Also the towels were super soft and lovely. The room was very quiet which was great. The size of the room was fine and as we only stayed one night, we did not use the pool. Breakfast was very nice and everything we needed was available.
Overall it was much better than I had anticipated, and I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for the new building

Besides the proximity to the airport and the airport shuttles the hotel has to offer, the staff was super friendly, the rooms were quite nice and new, and the general atmosphere was soothing, also thanks to the nice little swimming pool.

We arrived at Marseille airport nd picked up our car at midnight, so we wanted a hotel near to the airport.The HI website says 'Take all directions, then the first left exit "Couperigne Zone". At the intersection, left on Impasse Pythagore.' - However, the first exit comes very soon after the Toutes Directions sign, so make sure that you are in the left lane and ready to exit... Otherwise (as we found out) you will take a lengthy detour!

Even at midnight, the hotel reception was busy. Staff were polite and efficient and we were in our room pretty quickly. The room was samll, but in every otehr way it was in excellent condition.... Clean, good decorative order, modern and a modern bathroom.

The bed was very comfortable. This was easily the best room that we had on our 10 day trip to Provence. We only stayed one night, but I wish that we had stayed longer.

The buffet breakfast was good and plentiful. This included bacon and eggs that were good. The dining room is spacious and well organised.

There is a small swimming pool which is in good condition and popular.

I would definitely stay here again if /when in the area. - Book well in advance to get good B&B price.
