While luckily the blockout curtains worked like a charm, waking up every morning and going to sleep with the magnificent view of the historic city center and the main cathedral on the opposite hill from the balcony on the 7th floor was great. Spacious and very clean room, professional and friendly staff.As it was very warm even in September, the air condition came in handy. From the balcony you can make out subway/bus stops (www.rtm.fr) as well as the hop on/hop off open deck bus (www.marseillelegrandtour.com/marseille-circuit.php) and the boats that will take you to Château d'If (www.frioul-if-express.com) or to other excursions along the coast (www.croisieres-marseille-calanques.com). Behind the hotel, 150m to a supermaket (SuperU in Grand Rue) and 3 excellent bakeries (also selling fabulous takeaway pizza slices). 1 km waterfront promenade to the new museums MUCEM and Villa Méditeranée. Taxi EUR 10 to railway station outside peak hour.
