Helpful and friendly reception staff, speak decent English. Room was small but nice, clean and tidy, and apparently her indoors tells me to write, for the ladies, powerful hairdryer. Breakfast was continental buffet, with all the usual suspects. The location was excellent, station about 10 mins, major bus-stop many different routes @ 50 yds away. Galery Lafayette and shopping centre...

This was a reasonable hotel for a short business trip. Friendly, helpful staff. Good internet connection. I wasn't entirely happy about the security, though. I had a 1st- or 2nd-floor room with a small balcony whose doors I could not satisfactorily lock from the inside. In future I would ask for a higher room.

Stayed here for five nights with my wife while travelling in Marseille. The reception was really small (just a desk) and the staff didn't really have a good command of English. Nonetheless, we checked in rather quickly and got our room. The room is small - not enough space for us to put our suitcase and open them up. The...

Excellent location close to the old port and the Canebiere. Ground transportation is also convenient.Rooms are clean and recently refurbished but small. Breakfast is good and staff friendly and helpful. I would recommend it both for leisure and business travellers.

At 70 euros per night, breakfast included, it might be worth spending 2 nights rather than one in Marseille. Location is good, 2 minutes away from the Vieux-Port, hotel is clean. However, you should remove 2 points if you need silence to sleep, insonorisation in the street-facing room is horrid and there is a lot of chatting and noises in...

The hotel was chosen for its location, ratings & price. All of them are exactly the ones other people share here. It's 3-5 min walking from the very centre of the town which is very good, but at the same time right after there is an area of immigrants, so it is not fully safe even during the day, as...

Dear Oxa1111 Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I am sorry sorry that you were afraid by some people around the hotel but can ensure that it is a safe area and yes sometimes they can be "too friendly" but as a woman I never had any problem of security or even...

Very well located hotel close to the old port with restaurants, museums etc close by but also the area is quite run down with rubbish and graffiti in the street. The hotel itself is relatively modern and well furnished but the rooms are microscopic to the point of ridiculous. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Dear Ian C Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you had good time in Marseille I would only say that the size of our rooms is 11m² minimum for a single room and 12m² for a double room which is certainely not huge but not microscopic either, particularly in big european cities.

We spent three nights at this Quality Hotel and it was a very enjoyable experience. We had a small but well laid-out and quiet room on the fourth floor. The decor was simple but modern, and overall quite comfortable. The hotel is about a 5-7 min walk to the Old Port, and lots of shopping and dining options are close...
