Enjoyed our stay which was unexpected and due to our return flights being cancelled at the last moment. A panicked call from the airport to check room availability (it was New Year's Eve) involved a 5 minute sales pitch from the reservations department before room availability was confirmed! The hotel really is well positioned with great views over the old...

The hotel is great with a stunning view on the "vieux port". The food is great and the bar on the top floor offers a great choice of cocktails. A special thanks to the staff, they were all very welcoming and dedicated to help the guests to make their stay exceptional.

The Sofitel is probably the best address in Marseille, with a stunning location looking over the old port and the city. This is my 3rd visit over the last 15 or so years and I am never disappointed! The rooms are very comfortable, great bed and amenities. The staff is great (especially the concierges & reception) and they go out...

I tried on a saturday afternoon the spa of the Sofitel Vieux Port. Staff is very helpfull. Massage was very good quality although the hammam was not working. There's a lack of luxury for this kind of place.

Stopped for two night over a weekend. Very efficient and friendly reception, although I'd checked in online. Lovely view from the room balcony and only a short walk to the Vieux-Port itself. Service in the brasserie was excellent, with tasty food. Had drinks both nights in the Dantes Bar on the top floor. This was largely occupied by young and...

I like the Sofitel Marseille Vieux-Port very much and have stayed there a number of times. However, in the last stays the personnel attitude is deteriorating to the point that I do not think i will stay there again.

We loved our stay here. The service is first class from the moment we entered the hol. But, the view from our room topped it all. It is a panoramic view of the port, and the forts.
