The hotel is very conveniently located right opposite the city railway station. While the surrounding area of Marseille city is a bit shabby, the hotel is very clean and organised. As expected from Holiday Inn Express, the rooms are very simple, but everything works fine. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was simple but good. Good place for short stay...

Ideal location. The Hotelwas clean, cool and quiet. The service we received from most of the Front Desk Staff was exceptional. Thebreakfast also good! Ideal location within 10 minutes walk of the boulevards...They resolved a problem with our three night reservationand made our stay in the city so enjoyable. ..

My wife and I were backpacking through western Europe and stayed in Marseille for two nights. First, this hotel is very convenient as it is literally across the street from the St. Charles train station. This was especially important as we arrived by train in the evening, and the shuttle to the airport also leaves from St. Charles. St. Charles...

The Holiday Inn Express is a nice hotel. The rooms are big and clean and the reception is very helpful. The breakfast was fine but the service in the breakfast room was really lousy. The waiter had all the time in the world so the buffet was almost empty all the time.

I asked why? Receptionist told they do not have any more quilt in hotel. They gave us hard cover of the sofa instead of quilt. I said receptionist" you should want, here is not a hostel, if you had wanted from managers they would send you more quilts". This is the first international hotel that does not give a quilt...

Sayed in this hotel for 3 nights last year due to the high rating on tripadvisor and was overall disappointed. I think it was more the location that I didn't love rather than the hotel itself. There were literally rats on the streets outside the hotel on a couple of days. The location of the hotel would be great if...

This hotel was perfect for our holiday, having arrived via the TGV it was situated just across the road, they served an excellent breakfast and the rooms were clean. It took us about a 10 minutes walk to the port, but you could also use the metro which was just one minute away. I would highly recommend this hotel if...

Seldom does one find a lovely, well priced hotel opposite a major train station with welcoming staff (and who spoke English) especially when one checks-in well after midnight! A bowl of sweets on the reception counter was a nice touch! The room was spotlessly clean, modern and bright. The reception area had an attractive bar and stylish partition to the...

I went on business and after traveling by plane then train a hotel so near to the station was ideal. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English. The hotel looks brand new and is exceptionally clean and modern. My room was spacious and again very clean. My only small gripe was that I didn't feel that the air...
