We stayed here for 5 nights while we visited Marseille and took part in Run Marseille. It is right on the waterfront of the Old Port, a beautiful location, surrounded by a range of great places to eat, a mixture of quirky bars and pubs, cheap food places as well as easy access to early morning coffee and pastries. The...

Great location, enormous bedroom and bathroom, quiet despite proximity to traffic below. Average breakfast given the 'stars'. Ideally located for boat trips to the islands. Would certainly stay again.

Looked exceptional value at £60 per night for twin room in a 4 star hotel but it doesn't quite match the 4 stars I've stayed at elsewhere around the world, this a 3 star in my opinion but still good value, clean and helpful staff in a great location right in the heart of the port area, my only criticism...

Not sure how this hotel has been rated as a four star unless the rating system in Marseille is different to the rest of the world! I travel a lot (almost every week) so have stayed in my fair share of hotels and, as much as I love Marseille, I have to say this is probably the worst hotel I've...

Enough said. Very basic, no restaurant, no facilities in the room, view terrible until we paid 60 euros extra for a room overlooking the port( although directly above McDonalds!) Hotel Ok for a "stopover", nothing more..... unfortunstely we were there for three days! Quite disappointing really although central location, not bad I suppose.

I can't really say anything good about this hotel, we had a bad first impression and it didn't get any better from there. When we first located the hotel there didn't seem to be anywhere to safely stop in front, and so two of us jumped out of the vehicle a few blocks down. We went in to ask if...

Any problems with this hotel are not down to the staff but to the Management, who's ideas on grading this hotel are unrealistic. It is admitted that photos and descriptions of rooms do not always reflect reality. I was shown to my room on the 4th floor, which was a very small double, with plain walls and what had been...

We stayed here for 2 nts. We arrived early morning but were able to leave our bags at the hotel and come back in the afternoon to check in. Rooms were very clean and spacious enough for France. Bathroom was quite compact & the built-in hairdryer did not work. Reception gave us a replacement dryer but it was less than...

Not really a 4 star hotel , more a 3 star . I stayed on a bed and breakfast basis . For what I paid it really suited me especially the location , right on the port close to everything . Breakfast was basic . If you want something a bit more fancy then this is not for you ....
