This little gem of a B&B is in a nondescript building in a fantastic location on the back (quiet) side of a main street near everything in Marseille. The room, while not large, was modern, stylish, comfortable, and packed with amenities like a mini-fridge, coffee maker, info/guides, sitting area, and microwave. Very good wifi and a/c as well. Very comfy foam bed and pillows. Although we didn't get to experience it, breakfast was to be brought to the room at whatever time specified with the owner.

I could say lots of nice things about the room itself, but the real star here is proprietor Christophe and he is the real reason this establishment is so great. From the moment of making the reservation, his communication was fantastic and helpful. When we arrived, the room wasn't quite ready, but instead of us using the self check-in instructions, he met us there, and we could leave our bags. Later in the day, we learned our original flight home had been canceled and that we would have to leave a day early - only one night into our scheduled two-night stay. I called Christophe after fixing our flights and he came right over so I could pay and he provided a little souvenir and all kinds of helpful information. He provided advice about filing a claim with the airline, scheduled our taxi for 4am the next morning, and insisted on meeting us at 4am to provide some food to bring to the airport. He also provided a detailed receipt so we could file the claim with the airline. We unfortunately ended up missing him at 4am the next morning, but he sent a lovely email anyway and his effort to provide us breakfast was so appreciated. I cannot say enough great things about this B&B and its owner and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if I were to ever return to Marseille. I have stayed in a lot of wonderful places in my travels but have never experienced this kind of warmth, service, kindness, and hospitality.

We had originally booked a room with breakfast but Christoph (the owner) offered us an apartment with breakfast for the same price, so of course we took it.
The area looks a little edgy but we felt perfectly safe walking home at night.
It is on a fairly direct route downhill from the Nedelec exit of the train station, and took us about 12 minutes to walk to. (Slightly longer to walk back as it was uphill)
Christoph was very congenial, spoke English, and met us with the keys.
The studio apartment was recently completely renovated. It is comfortable, stylish, and has a kitchen with large fridge,coffee-maker,microwave,2 burner induction stove top and all utensils. It turns out we didn't need the kitchen except to make coffee because Christoph arrived the next morning with a tray of fresh croissants,yogurt,juice,cheese,jams,butter and bread.
Christoph even helped us sort out a problem with our train booking after it was cancelled on us. This was a great help considering we had only booked for one night and he really didn't need to go out of his way.
It leaves a good to meet someone like Christoph on your first day in a big city like Marseille.
Thank GWToronto
