This is a great place to stay when in Mareille. It is just across from the entrance to the metro (Stop Vieux Port, exit Canabieres).
The reception area is very small (only 2 seats) but our room was a very good size as was the bathroom.
Apart from the superb location, the staff were so helpful. We stayed during the Bastille Day celebrations and the Tourism Office had been useless in providing information to us. The night before the 14th July, I asked the receptionist about events for Bastille Day (besides the fireworks at the Vieux Port). She didn't know but said she'd find out for me. Within 20 minutes, she called to our room with a print out of details from the internet and a map that she had marked to show us how to get to the parade etc. This was so kind and helpful. Other members of staff were likewise very friendly and welcoming.
The hotel is also spotlessly clean. We can't comment on breakfast as we eat out for breakfast when on holiday.
We hope to stay at this hotel when we next visit Marseille - which hopefully won't be too long away!
