Ibis Marseille Centre Prado Velodrome
Ranked #48 of 132 Hotels in Marseille
Reviewed 28 July 2013

I've used this hotel several times for stays ranging from 2 to 10 days, over the last three years. I'm giving it 5 stars (5 circles?), not because of its level of luxury, but because of how convenient it is and because of the value you get for your money. Rooms are clean and comfortable, with air conditioning - the hotel underwent some heavy refurbishing about 3 years ago, I believe. It is very well located, close to bus stops and subway stations, one block away from the Prado main street. The hotel is within walking distance (10 minutes, if that) of Castellane, one of Marseille's main squares. Walk an extra 10 minutes and you'll reach Prefecture and the Rue Saint-Ferreol, a pedestrian street with a plethora of shops. The full walk all the way to the Vieux Port (Old Port) will take you about 40 minutes. The hotel is easily accessible by car, and it's a 5 minutes drive to the highway. This means you can rent a car (The "Europ Car" rental agency is nearby) and drive off to explore the area around Marseille: Aix-en-Provence is 30 minutes away, and there are a bunch of Calanques (rocky coves typical of the area) to visit nearby (Cassis comes to mind), besides those of Marseille itself (Sugiton, Sormiou). The hotel has its own secure underground parking lot - although it does have its tight turns, I had no problem maneuvering my bulky 4x4 in there.

At the time of this writing (July 2013), a room with a king sized bed was 80 euros. It's cheaper than that if you book through the Web - I got it for 65 euros. The breakfast buffet is very decent, an all-you-can-eat with croissants and chocolate croissants ("pains au chocolat"), cereals, cheese, ham, etc. You can also have lunch or dinner on site. Speaking of restaurants, the neighborhood has a lot to offer: the Prado boulevard has a few nice restaurants, and the Rouet street (Rue du Rouet) as well. One block from the hotel, at 113 rue du Rouet, is "La Rizière" (formerly "Binh An"), a family-style Vietnamese and Thai restaurant with authentic cuisine where the friendly staff takes good care of their customers. You can get a full meal there for 15 euros. To summarize, you will not be pampered in this hotel (no spa, no satin bedsheets) and you will not enjoy picturesque views from you window, but it can serve as an excellent base for your exploration of Marseille.

I was very impressed by this hotel. My room was clean and had all the facilities mentioned on the web page. The internet connection works well and at the reception desk there are very nice people. I had a reservation made online and everything was ok. It is very easy to get to the hotel from the Perier metro station. If I come back to Marseille I will choose the same hotel.

For the price the hotel is ok. Very basic nothing fancy. but the problem we faced is with the entrance and the exit to/from the underground parking. The entrance is so tight and curvy that even a good driver can risk to damage his/her car.

Well, I have quite liked all the people I have seen over there, from the young guy at the front desk who was very polite, the older guy in the night who is easy going and let us have our breakfast at 6 while it should open at 6.30...

The location is fine, you may find some public parking outside, which is free on evening and sunday. Otherwise ibis has its own for 11euros per night I think.
You are 100m away from the metro station Perrier, and there is cinemas and restaurant about 500m from there.
But please, do not expect the Beach of the Prado or the velodrome to be a short walk from there. The prado beach is a 20min walk and the velodrome almost the same.

Breakfast is good, slightly above ibis standard.

It is not the newest Ibis, but it doesn't look too dated.

The food from the menu is nothing exceptional but acceptable for a late meal when no other options are acceptable.

Good value choice for a short stay in the city. Clean and comfortable with friendly staff. Great location for a fast exit out of the city towards Cassis and the Calanques, only a 20-30min drive away. Secure garage for those arriving with a car.
