The hotel's located at a stone's throw from the St. Charles station, the main one in Marseille. This was very useful as we had a lot of luggage and found it very convenient just hopping across to the hotel.
We expected a very basic, no frills hotel, but were pleasantly surprised. One of the staff at the reception was extremely friendly, spoke very good English and helped us a lot in getting around. He dedicated a full 15 mins to giving us advice and tips on where to go and what to do. The room was compact, with a small bathroom (no lock), but it was maintained well. The air conditioner didn't function properly, but it was that time of the year when we didn't need to worry about the temperature..
Free internet access was a welcome surprise. The breakfast spread was basic, but good. The restaurant where we had lunch was good too. The chef took the extra effort to prepare something vegetarian for us, upon request, which was very nice of him. For a budget traveller, this hotel is a great deal.
