We booked mainly because of the superb location literally just off the port, plenty of bars and restaurants close by. The staff were helpful, but the room was small, sparse and very basic, no nice furnishings , no tea/coffee or water in the room, no wardrobe just a metal framed stand. A bit noisy, but clean, it was adequate for one night, but not luxurious, i wouldn't want a long stay there

I changed my Ibis Hotel booking with breakfast to this one in favor of their rooftop deck, which I did not regret because of the comfort I had during my stay.
I requested for a room with a view, wanting the top floor room, next to the viewing deck. Unfortunately, it was occupied the day I arrived. However, I got assigned to the third floor with a partial view of the port, a wonderful sight ensured, at least I could see the Notre Dame De La Garde and the boats from my window. It was beautiful during the day and was spectacular at night.
Since the Vieux Port is the ultimate destination in Marseille, to be staying in the district gave me the most convenient access to all. I got to see the If Chateau and Frioul Island as most tours start from here. It allowed me to also stay late at night and wander along the port to any restaurants and souvenir shops.

It is incredibly well situated, right by the Vieux Port. It's such a central location, making it easy to get to anywhere, the Panier, and all other old neighbourhoods. The staff is always great as well. The breakfast is very well appointed.

We stayed at this hotel two weekends ago for one night .
The hotel itself sits on a corner just behind the main road that runs along the old port
So it's location is good .
Underground car parking is a brisk 5 minute walk away and cost 12 euros for every 24 hours .
Visually from the outside this two star hotel is presentable as is the small reception area and breakfast / coffee lounge on the ground floor
The hotel has a disabled lift for guests to take them up a level to the main lift
Which covers four of the five floors .
Reception staff were friendly and helpful and spoke a good level of English .
The hotel entrance is guest access only via reception intercom system.
Now it gets negative
There is a lift from the fourth floor to the fifth which is where our room was situated but on the day we stayed it was being used to transport boxes of wine and beers , so we had to take a set of narrow spiral stone stairs up to our room
501 .
On opening the door to our room we were greeted by a strong over powering smell of damp , must and urine
The small entry carpet was filthy with a large stain right in the middle which we believed was urine.
The bedroom was clutter with beds ,a double bed plus a single plus a further pull down bed
There was no place to move and we had to squeeze between the beds and round them .
That was all that was in the room
The beds had these orange runners at the foot of them that stank of damp and were in need of a good wash .
More disgusting stains were on the carpet around the edge of the room .
The sliding doors exit to a small astro turf patio with table and chairs with a reasonable side view of the harbour
Unfortunately it could not be used as that evening they had a happy hour roof party on the roof above our room and terrace
That started at 6 pm and finished at 2am with loud music
So we had drinkers hanging over flicking cigarettes onto us and our patio.
Bathroom had been updated but not finished and was grubby , bath not fit for purpose .
Overall room was grim and stank and should not be have been let
At 145 euros for the night plus 8 euros each for breakfast and 12 euros for parking it was a total rip off and grossly overpriced
Would never stay again or recommend
In my opinion the photos of the bedrooms are very very decieving and don't accept room 501 if allocated to you

Responded 1 May 2021
Dear Attia317, First of all, thank you very much for your feedback and your impressions about your stay in our hotel. I am sincerely sorry that your stay was not as you imagined. As you can see from most of our reviews, we pay special attention to the cleanliness of our establishment and our rooms. Since your stay, the room has been refreshed and thoroughly cleaned. Regarding your odor complaints, you could have spoken to us directly as soon as you entered your room, we would have found you another solution. The terrace is one of the main strengths of the hotel, we are in fact the only rooftop with a view of the port. The opening hours are from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., and the music is lowered from 10 p.m. A person is available at the reception 24 hours a day, if the music is too loud, we immediately take care of lowering it. Once again, I'm sorry for your bad experience with us, and hope to be able to welcome you again to change your mind. Best regards,

Far too expensive for what you get:
Not really with a bathroom- only a tiny toilet with shower (with one small towel per person),
cheap decoration and thin windows (no noise protection).
The worst: Quite dirty !!
Very simple breakfast not included in the price of 135€ per night- excl.tax.
(And you have to carry the tray to the fifth floor by yourself of course, including the two floors without elevator!)
No service at all.
Attention: You will get wet crossing the terrace to enter the room if it is raining.
Wonderful view indeed and very central location at the old harbour
BUT don‘t trust the guidebooks like ‚Gite Routard‘: It is definitely not worth the money.
Rent a cheaper room in the same hotel or switch to the next one around the corner and pay a bit more for a clean and cosy room with the same view!

Dear rheinschiffer, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review following your stay at our hotel. I am however relatively surprised by this one, indeed, the Bridal room is the most requested room of the establishment, and we have only very good feedback about it. Its view facing the Old Port is highly sought after. Regarding the breakfast service, we are a small family business. There is therefore someone on duty in the breakfast room, but indeed not on the upper floors. See you soon, maybe in another room

A very basic but clean room. The location and rooftop terrace is what sells this hotel. We went for a girls night and it was perfect. The staff were very friendly and all spoke perfect English. I would say that this hotel is perfect for a visit to Marseille. It is a place to lay your head.

I will go back because I loved the terrace.

Excellent location, the view from the rooftop bar is amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and rooms were clean with modern furniture. You also get a view of the port from your room which is great. The only thing we missed was Wi-Fi but it was not an issue.

We had a really pleasant stay, everyone was nice and friendly (especially Monicq who was able to help us out).

The location was great and the rooms as well. It was very central with many bars and restaurants nearby.
Also, the rooftop bar was amazing!

Overall the Hotel Hermes made our trip to Marseille even better 😊

I stayed there 3 nights (22-23-24 June 2015. If you are alone and 90 Euro per night is not much for you go ahead! Very clean, very nice terrace overlooking the harbor but sound insulation is not very good. You may have to listen to the couples at the next room!

We felt like we were staying on a cruise ship - the rooms are long and very small. The hotel needs some updating and a harbor view is just that - a view if you look at an angle since the room is not on the Quai but right off it on a side street.

Our room (101) smelled when we walked in and we found out why later that night. The drainage in the bathroom was poor and water leaked out into the room and soaked the carpet. The mirrored closets had shattered glass and I was afraid to walk around barefoot because of that.

But it was central and the rates reasonable (without the drainage and glass problems) and they do have a beautiful balcony on the roof of the hotel with a picture perfect view of the harbor. Hotel is acceptable but there are probably better alternatives.
