- Elevator broken, had to drag bags to 4th floor. no assistance. - Room ridiculously tiny. - Toilet seat was dirty. Can't call to ask for cleaning because there is NO PHONE in room - Wifi didn't work in room. In lobby, if you have an Apple device, prepare to get onto a painfully slow connection once, then never again....

Yes I admit this is well located, very close to the central station. Now that's all. Service is poor. Room ridiculously small, with very basic furnitures. Dining room for breakfast, not inspiring at all, then I went to a café outside. Definitely will not go back.

This hotel is located in the centre of Marseille, just 1 min walk from the train station, 7min walk from vieux de port and 20min by car from the airport. However, although centrally located, the hotel is situation in a 'shabby' in St Charles De Gare. The streets there were full of rubbish and the place in my opinion was...

I found this to be a great spot to stay in Marseille. You are at the bottom of the beautiful steps that lead to Gare St Charles. It's also only about a 7 minute walk to the port. The room was very clean and spacious enough for 2 to stay for a week if necessary. We didn't have the breakfast...

The male staff were great. The female front desk girl, though sexy, had a bad attitude. Rooms seemed freshly carpeted at the time so other's foot smells were not apparent. Bathroom's have almost no fixtures. A stupid folding chair to sit on for taking a shower. Everything gets wet, all the floor, when you shower. The breakfast buffet was lacking...

We stayed only one night in this hotel, but all was great. Hotel is new, location is prefect, service was friendly, room spacious. We had problems with wifi, but it was only for 1 night so it didn't bother us

Location: nearby the railwaystation, what good is for travelling. Not far from the centre of Marseille. The neighbourhood is a bit shady at night. Staff: polite, but not really nice. A bit cold (maybe typical for chain hotels? Don't have many experience with that) Room: a bit small, but clean and modern. With airconditioning :-). But there was no toiletbrush...

OMG! Where do I start? Save your time and money, and don't stay at this hotel. My husband and I needed to change our room 2 times. Room #1: hairdryer didn't work, wi-fi didn't work at all. We needed to take our 4 huge bags and move to a different room. Room #2: the water didn't go through in the...

I needed a hotel next to the train station and after some previously very bad experiences in hotels in Marseille I was really pleased with this find. The hotel is new, the staff helpful, the prices excellent and rooms are clean, well appointed and exactly what you need for a day or two of work related travel. Plus at about...

Hotel is located just nearby train station, but from my point of view main advantages are that hotel is brand new, clean and silent. The service is also fine, so this all made my stay in Balladins very good experience. Location is also very convenient, becasue of location in regard to train station, but it's just 10 minutes walking to...
