Room small, clean, perfect for quick restful overnight. "Restaurant" was higher quality Stouffers. My fish with tomato sauce was still partially frozen and was the first disappointing meal I had in France.
We flew to Marseille for a long weekend and choose the hotel for its location close to the airport shuttle at Gare Saint Charles as we had an early flight out of Marseille. The hotel is within easy walking distance to the Vieux Port if you don't mind the neighborhood. We felt completely safe but can imagine that other people wouldn't feel at ease to walk around the station neighborhood at night. The hotel is precisely what you can expect from an Ibis Hotel. The rooms are very small but efficient, beds are comfortable. The bathroom is even smaller and might be a problem if you are claustrophobic. It's what you can expect for the price. The breakfast was also typical Ibis with a nice big buffet and a decent price. Staff was friendly and helpful and all spoke good English. We found it a perfect hotel for a city trip as you don't spend much time in your hotel room because you want to explore the city. We would definitely return mainly because of the convenient location and the price.
This hotel is useful for people who visit Marseille as well as it's surrounding by train. That means you can go to nearby cities/attractions from Marseille and still spend the night in one place. The room are equipped with shower and comfortable single beds. Breakfast are included which has variety of pastries and beverages. The reception is very helpful.
Room was very small - it would not be suitable for an extended stay - not enough room for 2 people with a suitcase each. We decided not to unpack as there was very little room to store clothes. Only provided with 2 large towels - all other hotels we stayed in on this trip (5 more) provided hand towels as well. We were not able to use the air conditioning unit at night as "it was not available until later in the year" even though it had been very hot during both of the days that we stayed and the building had stored a lot of heat. We had to open the window which was a bad move as we overlooked a railway marshalling yard which started moving trains at about 05.30 - so no more sleep after that.
