“basic, basic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Like other reviewers have noted, this is a very basic hotel. But no one wants to linger at an airport hotel - you just want a clean, safe place to stay before or after a flight. This place is very handy - the shuttle was easy, the check-in was fine (luckily there was a live person there at the time and I didn't have to manage some electronic check-in). The room was tiny, plain, clean. The ultra compact bathroom was about like how I imagine an RV bathroom would be. It was all fine (and cheap) but it was just SO basic. No hair dryer. Not even a chair, really. While it fit the bill for a cheap airport stay, I found so plain and bare that it was almost depressing. I think for a few dollars more, it might be preferable to stay somewhere not quite so basic. Unless you're looking for a prison-room type accommodation and then this might just fit the bill.

I have stayed at Ibis and Etap hotels before and know what to expect, but this stay was different...it started out with the hotels's bankcard service not working - everyone was having to pay only in cash. The room was clean enough and the bathroom quite sufficient, but the air was stifling inside-there was a heating/cooling unit, but the cooling had been switched off for the season and the receptionist said it could not be switched back on. As it was in the 20's C outside, the only option was to open a window for partial airing, letting in the jet noises from the airport runway a few hundred metres away and the mosquitos. On top of all this, the bedding, which seemed quite clean, seemed to be made of some synthetic material that does not "breathe", so I spent the night covering and uncovering, alternately sweating or chilling. I will certainly hesitate to stay in the Etap/Ibis Budget hotels in the future...

We found this hotel ideal for overnight stay after late arrival into Marseille airport and again after holiday before morning flight back to UK. Excellent value. Extremely clean small but adequate small room, good bed, good shower room and w.c. Nice staff. Certainly recommend this hotel. Buffet breakfast , choice and plentiful, available from 4.30 a.m. and shuttle to and from aiport. Inward evening arrival was very late so we got a taxi €6 - no problem. It is an easy, well-marked, 10-12 minute walk from airport which we did on the return evening having dropped off hirecar. Also, there is discount for meal at very good and reasonably priced restaurant in Ibis hotel opposite (only breakfast at Etap). We would certainly use this hotel again..

We chose this hotel because it is located at only 400 meters from Marseille Airport and we had an early flight at 06h40 in the morning. We found the hotel to be clean, the staff was friendly, the room was compact but had everything you need including a good bed and a nice shower, Walls are quite thin, you do hear people in the other rooms and on the corridor, but then again, this is a low budget hotel, so what would you expect?
We were happily surprised that they have breakfast available starting at 04h00 in the morning and they also offered a free shuttle to the airport terminal!
All in all, a good choice if you want a hotel close to the airport at a cheap price!

We weren't expecting much from this hotel as it was cheap. However the room, albeit small, is very functional and has everything you could want. It is absolutely spotless too and there are free transfers to the airport from 5am which was perfect for us as we had a 6.30am flight. Perfect for our needs and recommended.

My husband and I stayed here after a late night flight into Marseille and because we were renting a car the next morning from the airport, we wanted a place nearby to crash for the night. The hotel has a shuttle service to pick you up from the terminal which was great. Check in was easy and we found the room to be small (normal for Europe) and very clean. The room is very basic, no phone, clock, etc but it does have free wifi. The bathroom is small with an even smaller shower stall. Breakfast was 5 Euro and also very basic, but did the trick. Overall it was a good budget hotel for a night, would recommend it if you just need a place to crash at the airport. One thing to mention is that there is a restaurant in the nearby ibis hotel (which is the only restaurant i'm aware of closeby) and they close at 9pm. If you get in later than that, make sure you bring something, or don't mind going without for the night. We were able to locate a sandwhich vending machine in the lobby but since we had just arrived didn't have coins to use so we asked the desk to change a 10 euro note and they said they would only change 5 in coins so we had to split a single sandwich. This might explain why we weren't complaining about breakfast of any sort.

We are a family of six travellers, and we rented three double rooms; we often rent only two rooms, but are very glad three were rented for this overnight stay. (Renting three was considerably less expensive than renting two at any other hotel we could find on-line.) We arrived at noon to find our rooms ready. The rooms contain the bare essentials in a compact space. Our eperience was the toilet AND sink and shower occupying a seperate room within the room, not just the toilet as was written by another reviewer. The staff were helpful. TIP FOR TRAVELLERS IN FRANCE WHO SPEAK LITTLE OR NO FRENCH: This phrase has opened the door to the hearts of every single French person I have said it to; they then used any English they may know to accompany my limited French in communicating. "Bonjour, je suis desolee, mais je ne parle pas francais."

Bohn (like "John" but don't pronounce the "n") - zhoor (the "zh" sound is like the second "g" in the word "garage"), zhuh swee day-so-lay, may zhune pah-rl paw frawn-say.

You will be saying, "Hello, I'm sorry, but I do not speak French," and your saying so will result in the French person putting in extra effort to help you communicate...and it all concluding in a friendly, not frustrating, way. Oh, and saying, "Mair-see" (Thank you) at the end will leave them smiling.
