Golden Tulip Villa Massalia
Ranked #25 of 132 Hotels in Marseille
Reviewed 25 December 2016

Nice hotel, very friendly staff, excellent food with a special mention for the buffet-breakfast, wide choice of - French - newspapers to start the day on the terrasse, comfortable beds.
Some rooms are nicer and bigger than the others and it might be a good decision to pay for a superior room especially if you want a nice view and not looking the pharmacy shop next door :-))
To be noticed... The swimming-pool is a bit on the small size compare to the feeling you have when you look at some pictures on the website of the hotel.
One major point... You're in the middle of nowhere and a car is just essential !!!!

Room Tip: Be careful with the cheaper rooms facing the back of the hotel...

So this hotel could easily have rated 4 points but for a couple of incidents which were wholly unnecessary. Basically any business should respect their guests, not lie to them and not rip them off.

However they had a bar mitzvah in a Sunday. Nothing wrong with that but the hotel allowed the music to shake our room till well past midnight. On a Friday or Saturday or in the middle of the summer season this could be understood if not condoned. But on a Sunday in October when paying guests have to work the next day it is unacceptable. For all business guests I would whole heartedly invite you to find somewhere else.

The second incident was in the bar which was long and I won't go into details but the barman both clearly lied to me and was clearly underserving measures. Both of which meant we no longer on the last day used any further of the hotels paid services.

All in all I would find somewhere else. I certainly will be next time I'm in the area.

Stayed her for 4 nights 12 -16th Sept 2016 2 x couples. Room was ok no balcony . Receptionist quoted us on a taxi fair to the Old port she told us 50-80 Euros but it was only 17 think they need to get up to date as it could put some people off. Bar staff were very lovely and night porter to who helped us get a drink at yes 11.30 bar was supposed to stay open till midnight think they were more interested in looking after the french business party so closed the bar.and I have to agree they were very loud The best part was the Pool it was lovely & warm. Would I stay here again no.
