I was most certainly impressed by the excellent customer service, especially the helpful and friendly reception staff who went out of their way to make this a good stay. The breakfast was really tasty, and there was a variety to choose from. The hotel is in a good location, and a 10-15 walk from the city centre and Viex Port,...

Stayed for 2 nights but their wifi is pathetic and when I complained at reception I was told that they had a good reception on their iPhones, therefore it should be good in the rooms. The wifi goes on for about 5 mins and then off for a long time. I couldn't connect with this type of service. For such...

Best western La Joliette is a charming and lovely little hotel. The central location makes this hotel a good choice. Just a 10-15 minute walk to the centre of Marseilles old port, Vieux Port. The rooms were very nice and bright. They keep them in pristine conditions all the time, both concerning maintenance and cleaning. The staff was very friendly...

I stayed at this particular hotel in late April 2016 on a trip through France. I arrived at the Gare de Marseille Saint-Charles and walked 20 minutes down hill to the hotel. The streets between the hotel and train station are currently being worked on so I would instead suggest taking the Metro (Line #2/Red, direction; Bougainville) to the Joliette...

Was here just for a night after a cruise. It's a nice clean hotel. However it's rated a 4 star and our room was extremely compact for a twin room, would be fine for a single but not really suitable for 2 person. I don't feel like it's a 4 star hotel but if you get a good price it's...

We stayed here for four nights and found it to be an ideal hotel for a stay in Marseille. The location is just a few hundred metres from Joliette Metro station, and it is also handy for bus and tram stops so you are perfectly located to take advantage of Marseille's excellent public transport system. By foot you are also...

The hotel is located 15min walking from old town. Easy to walk and go around. The room was very small but for only sleeping it's perfect. If you are a person for staying in room it's not recommended. Overall very good stay. We never dried the BF, because few meters walking offside you easily can find some awesome BF shops....
