Fabulous location right next to the Vieux Port and all of the very average (to poor) restaurants doting it. The hotel is very clean, nice firm bed, tiny but adequate room, friendly staff and very good breakfast for 11e additional cost. Even staying on street side, the room was quiet (with the exception of sirens)! Air conditioning wasn't working in...

This hotel has a great location. It is right in Vieux Port within easy walking distance of Notre Dame and the train station. There are tons of great restaurants and bars within minutes. The room was small but comfortable and very clean. I only wish that they included lotion in the bathroom.

Next time I will try a different hotel. It took us forever to find the hotel with the Navi on the rented car and the GPS on the Smartphone, not to mention the complication of the one way streets... you have to walk to get there. We landed on the top floor and our room was large for European sites...

Stayed one night as a stopover while traveling from Nice to Barcelona. The location is perfect, at the top of the vieux port, dead center, so can walk left and around, or right and around and take in this lovely area of Marseilles. It's also directly opposite Metro station, so very easily reached if traveling into Marseilles by train. We...
