“Great short stay hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

Typical Ibis hotel which is great because you know what to expect, however this room was actually better than expected and unusually large. Air conditioning was great and the service was perfect. The location of this hotel is fantastic for anyone using the train system either from out of Marseille or the underground around the city. Station is practically across the road from the hotel making it great. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone.

No Frills, but a friendly Service and clean Room. We had to spend only one Night there and for this Reason it was fully ok to go there. Room was very simple outfitted - as usual in this Ibis Hotels - but we already used to be and that was fully ok for just one Night. for Breakfast, we did choose, we have to say that it was very delicious. Large Ibis Hotel, many Guests there.

It was a short Trip to Marseille there and we did felt good in this Ibis Hotel, because it was very near from the Train Station and also Metro Station was nearby. Although we have been there only 2 Nights, we say, that it was all very friendly and totally clean there. During our Trip, we went two times there for Breakfast, wich was nice decorated and all fresh. Good Coffee and good Baguette there!

Stayed here as a stopover when arriving from Lille on Eurostar. Location is very close to station and easy to spot, hotel is very clean and very helpful on arrival. The rooms are adequate but quite small. The breakfast in the morning although a little pricey was of a good standard, sometimes when busy the items are not refreshed quickly enough.

We walked to 'Vieux Port' which was a pleasant 15 min walk downhill from the hotel, we used the metro to come back to the hotel which was 1.5 euro per person - fairly simple after a little guidance.

We were joining a cruise ship and the taxi from the hotel to the cruise ship docking point was 35 euros.

I would recommend this hotel if you are passing through and require an easy location to the station.

It's weird giving an Ibis 4 stars, but it's horses for courses! We stayed at the Ibis Gare St Charles for four nights, figuring that at least it would be convenient (my husband was attending a nearby conference) so we weren't expecting a lot. Sure, the room was small, but everything that was needed was there, including WiFi, and it was spotlessly clean. What made it a pleasant stay was the cafe and restaurant, shady and cool on hot Marseille June days. This meant that, if you needed a break from sightseeing, you didn't have to sit in your hotel room - you could read a book under the shade of the plane trees, enjoying a coffee. A substantial continental breakfast is included in the reasonable rate, and for sightseeing, the metro and station are of course right there.
