The hotel is very well located and our experience with the day time staff was excellent, they were so nice and helpful. However there were some things that need improvement. First, our room was missing a few basic things we had to call to get--for example the remote for the tv, there was only one glass in the room, no...

I stayed one night in a Suite. The rooms are elegant and well appointed. Front desk staff was kind and helpful. You can't beat this location or the views. I have a few suggestions. Common areas need a thorough cleaning. There is dust on the floorboards in the hallways. The carpet leading into the main seating area is peeling up...

Loved the location, both for our view of the action of the Vieux Port and for the ease with which we could get to so many wonderful places on foot. Interesting decor, needed a bit of touching up, but that didn't detract from the time we spent. The staff were all friendly and helpful, and we would definitely go back...

Room overlooking the old port with a balcony. It does not get better than this. And such a friendly and helpful staff. The room is large - mine came with an extra bedroom. Not sure how that happened. I love when you hear great reviews on Trip Adviser and it works out. The room could use a garbage can (only...

Must stay when in Marseille, if you want to be central and have an amazing view! Ask for higher rooms with a view! Omg! :) You won't be disappointed if you choose this hotel! I wished we were staying longer!

You can't beat the location and the views out of your room window. Service was friendly. Breakfast was typical. Just missed the mark a bit with the room itself. Room had a slight (smoky?) odor and the shower didn't drain. **Note: Hotel allows dogs.

This hotel was everything it was billed to be. The location was superb. The view from the room looked directly on to the old port ( see photos). I mean really!!! Within a few 100 yards plenty of places to hang out an eat and drink. The people at the hotel were friendly. You can walk and walk to all...
