On business trips to Marseille I always stay in the Vieux Port. The people are great, the location is superb and the views are exceptional. A roof top terrace to die for, easy access around the port, good food, good service, its my go to place when working in the region.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms or rooms overlooking the port are best and there are lots of them.

It's July, it's boiling hot and Marseille is bustling down by the Old Port but here, with the best breakfast view of any hotel in Marseille you will find a cool oasis with high quality service.

Try to request a room that doesn't overlook the swimming pool (which belongs to the Novotel next door) as they have had noisy music till 11:30pm every night. Properly noisy music that you can clearly hear the words being sung. If you're out till late and don't care, that's fine but if you're with children, it'll be very irritating indeed.

The swimming pool is warm, adequate number of loungers, fresh towels etc but you do have to walk through a mini bar place that's part of the Novotel.

Get to breakfast before 9am and you'll probably have the place almost to yourselves. It's a wonderful choice of foods and to sit on the terrace and see across the water, yachts and watercraft, fluttering flags of the old fort from high up on the 7th floor is a piece of heaven. We were recommended this view by friends in Paris and they were right.

We only had one day in the hotel. Could only check in at 4 p.m. Decided to spend our time at the pool waiting for our room. The pool was awful. Very crowded very dirty water and faeces floating near the surface! No attendant on duty. One arrived about two hors after our arrival to remove the human excrement and then proceeded to pour in copious quantities of chlorine powder. The pool was unusable for another two hours after treatment. Filter not working properly as water was cloudy. All in all not a pleasant experience. For the rest the hotel was average. Five star prices, thee star quality.
