The central location makes this budget hotel ideal. Generally clean but could use a bit of modernisation.. But good value for money. No breakfast but plenty of cafes nearby. Ask for a room towards the main street for more light.

The Hotel de la Prefecture is quite easy to find and is roughly a 15-20 minute walk from the train station. The staff at the reception were very helpful and polite and gave me access to the WiFi straight away. My room was absolutely fine with all the amenities that I would need including my own bathroom. Of course being... More

Nice hotel located in the city center, 20 minutes walking from either the main train station and from the city center (Old port). It's also close to one Marseille's main streets, so you'll have shops, supermarkets, cafés and restaurants all around. The rooms are not luxurious and have only the minimum needed, but that's what we paid for so I... More

Place was hard to find. The sign was not obvious from the street. Location was good but 5 minutes up the road you'd find yourself in a not so good area. The service was terrible. Guy at reception didn't seem to know what he was doing. My room was facing the street so it was really noisy, even with the... More

A clean, average hotel. It's a bit old fashioned and the elevator is the smallest I've ever been into. The staff is not the most friendly people in the world but overall the hotel is comfortable. I only had a bad experience with another guest in the hotel. I was staying with a friend (she and I both girls in... More

We needed a hotel at this location and the other options were much more expensive. The room is very small with barely a small night table. The room was clean, but the rest of the hotel was not exactly very nice. For the price it should be better. For one night was ok...

I was very satisfied for the price and what I expected from a typical 1 star hotel. I would recommend this if you are traveling on a budget but want to be in walking distance of the Vieux Port and have a decent private room and bath. My wife and I were simply hoping for a cheap option that was... More
