Directly opposite Gare Saint-Charles, this hotel did what is says on the tin. Large shower room, free wifi that worked were big plusses with me. Good breakfast, if a little 'mass produced' in feel. You can find cheaper places, but this one has 'bon rapport prix/qualite'.

Spent one night at this hotel, which is straight across from the train station. The hotel is new and very clean, with a firm bed. Interesting bathroom with a two way swinging door which can separate the toilet to the bathroom. We also had a room next to the lift, but did not cause a problem as it was so... More

After the Avalon Cruise, went to Marseilles to catch an early morning train to Barcelona. The Holiday Inn Express fit the bill. It's located across street from the station and a metro link. Take the metro downtown to the Old port and enjoy being a tourist for the day. Return to a nice quiet, clean, modern room with large bath.... More

Right in front of the train station and few minutes walk to the University district. Very modern and friendly staff at reception desk. Complimentary internet access. Breakfast is OK, but nothing spectacular.

We stayed 4 nights and were quite satisfied with the clean room and comfortable bathroom (good shower!). Although the room was not very big it had everything we needed, including a table to work with your laptop. You could also boil water and make coffee or tea yourself. Our room was at the rear part of the hotel and we... More

Ideally I think this hotel would be about a 3.5 rating, but since that isn't available I'll give them a 4. I stayed several nights and can attest that the hotel is clean but very bare bones and that the area is bad. Next time I would definitely stay in Vieux Port, knowing what I know now. The best thing... More

This Holiday Inn Express was a very nice, clean and efficient hotel near the airport. Unfortunately, we did not eat there the night before our flight home as the menu was very generic, all microave food and expensive. We went to the nearby Ibis Hotel, their van shuttled us there and picked us up. Great grilled meats and service. Our... More

Hotel is opposite railway station and TGV and about 2 minutes walk (google maps incorrectly says 900m) to the platforms. Excellent location, off street secure parking, multilingual and helpful staff. Family room is large and perfect for a family of four. Highly recommended.
