We reached this hotel by car. The entrance to the parking is in a different location, but easy to find once you know. It is in a seperate "high security" section of a public underground car park.
The woman at reception was extremely friendly and helpful, a clear PLUS.
The hotel is modern (after renovation) and clean. The rooms are clean, modern, for a city centre location of sufficient size. Not large...but good enough. The bathroom could be bigger, but again, it is a city centre location. At least it is clean and everything works.
We had a magnificant view from our rooms, towards the harbour and the church on the hill.
Being a Gold member of Le Club Accor Hotels I received an invitation for all of us for a welcome drink - very good.
To walk from the hotel to the harbour is easy and quick. Actually the entrance to a shopping centre is just next to the hotel entrance.
A real highlight of the hotel is the breakfast. France does not have the reputation of being a heaven for breakfast lovers....but this place is really good! One buffet is only for the hot drinks, various coffee, tea, etc. options...fantastic! A station where eggs are being freshly prepared to your liking by a cook...nice. Also all the other options on the various buffets are of good quality and quantity is not a problem. All over all a real benchmark for other hotels, not only in France!
Internet works for free....only issue the usual "login procedure"....which is annoying.
If I return to Marseille, I would stay in this hotel again.
