The hotel and rooms occupy several sites on each side of Rue Montgrand. The hotel is within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and the scenic old port of Marseille (Vieux Port).
The reception staff was very friendly, check in was rapid. My room was on the 3rd floor of 50rue Montgrand almost opposite the reception. The hotel occupies all of the building; the room card gives access to the ground floor, from where there is modern lift up to the rooms.
The room itself had a modern wooden floor, was clean, bright and tastefully decorated, using modern lighting to good effect. There were two windows giving onto the street. During the day there is some traffic on the street but at night it was very quiet. The room appears on the small side however there was a large and I should add particularly comfortable double bed occupying much of the space. The bathroom was bright, modern and functional with a walk-in Italian shower.
The buffet breakfast was nothing special but had all the favourites from fresh breads and jams, mini pastries, yoghurts, ham, cheese or fresh boiled eggs. Coffee, tea chocolate and juices were also present. The breakfast room inside was tastefully decorated and frankly a nice place to sit. Some guests were taking their breakfast outside in the quiet, sheltered courtyard on a mild October morning.
Would I come back to this hotel? Yes... I liked it.More
