Horrible experience! The room and the reception have nothing to do with the pictures on the website. The wifi is not working in the room. You can hear everything happening in the corridors so no way to sleep, and the worse part is the horrible cooking smell around 6am in the room!!
This ibis unit doesnt compare with other ibis’s we stayed at… probably it is still under renovation or has it just upgraded from s lower tier…as i was told by another guest who stays at this hotel often.
It was by far the cheapest double room we could find in the centre of Marseille. The bathroom was very dated. There was no ironing board available. Otherwise clean and in an excellent location, staff were friendly enough.
Easy to get to from the Metro that connects with St Charles station it's a good location. It seems to be on the very line where the quite nice centre ville turns a little edgy. It's easy to walk to all the main sights from here. The room, as any Ibis is, has a basic feel. Very plain and simple but comfortable enough. Aircon thanks goodness. Easy check-in. What I would avoid is the breakfast, unless you love endless sweet things. Nothing but sweet stuff, breads, jam, sugary cereals. And the only tea some silly fruit thing. Lucky I had some proper teabags with me.
I thought I was going to an Ibis Hotel, according to the reservation made on the Accor Hotels website: "Hotel Marseille Center future Ibis city hall (January 2019)". However, upon arriving at the place, I was horrified by its appearance, which did not fit the other hotels on the network. The bathroom is extremely old, with plastic curtains in the shower stall. Simple breakfast, no fruit and no cheese/ham. Receptionist spoke just a little bit of English. As I stayed in a room next to the elevators, I heard a lot of noise throughout the night. Fortunately, the location is good, about a 15 minute walk from the port of Marseille.
I don't quite get it why Accor hotel bought this hotel and why they still running this place. I was in many of hotels of this group and this hotel make them very bad commercial. Hotel Marseille Centre need a complete reconstruction. One of the elevators is before collapse, our air condition doesn't work, in room was just one socket, bathroom is like from passed century, my bed was curved and i can continues. Breakfast was hilarious. Just sweet things - no ham, no cheese etc. The side house is empty and scary, plus you have to looking at this house if you wanna sit in the atrium of the hotel. Even the reception is no less funny, besides the old seats there is also a piano that is forbidden to play. Pros: nice, diligent and kind staff, low price. Accor please, close that hotel ASAP.…
Parking wasn’t available and we have to pay 20 euros more in a public parking Everything is very-very old in a hotel Just 1 plug in a room The location is nice, WiFi is good and juice for breakfast was tasty
Is an old building renovated, but still keeps some old appearance, specially on the bathroom. The parking elevator is scary but works. The breakfast was poor. Positives: Location and price. Plenty restaurants in the area.
First of all, the location was very good. My room was clean, with a big bed, and a nice TV. There was air conditioning, but I never tried to use it, the temperature was great. Had a window, which allowed it to be sunny. You can be in 30 minutes walking at Plage Catalans, basically it is 3 long streets, all in the same direction. Walking 15 minutes takes you to the port, with lots of stores and restaurants if you take Rue de la Rome. The staff at reception and the cleaning staff very polite, and helpfull. Few tips about location - I arrived by train from Paris. Basically, it is around 15 minutes walking to the St. Charles train and bus Station, but I I had no Web connection, so I took a taxi, which costed me 15 €. If you have to go to the airport, you must take the coach, anyway. There is no public bus, or metro for the airport. You take the airport shuttle / bus from St. Charles station anyway. The airport journey takes you around 30 minutes. The ticket price is 8.30€. Value for money. P. S. I had no breakfast, since I am more of a "brunch" type, however, you can get coffee from a coffee machine by the reception, for a 1€ coin, and soft drinks which would cost a bit more. Had no time to make photos of the room, or hotel itself, but it is not far from the streets in my photos. …
Overall this is a nice hotel for an affordable price. The hotel staff were friendly. I was offered to check-in early for no extra charge. This was appreciated after a tiring trip. My 7th floor room view was stunning! I could see the mountains, charming buildings and even Notre Dome. The tram and metro are close. The only dislikes: the bed could be more comfortable and the bathroom smelled bad.
