“A great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

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!

Room Tip: We paid extra when booking to get a room with a (sde) view of the port - since the hotel is so near...

staff is very nice, the hotel is at the very center. breakfast is very good. preferable to choose rooms not at the roof because they have no windows. staff was efficient to change the room with another with windows. the place is at the very center. rooms are clean.

We stayed for 1 night after retuning our car at the central train station, getting there was very easy, on one of her main streets next to a subway station. The old port is right by the hotel, as well as the main shopping streets, restaurants, cafes etc... The room was very clean, comfortable and inviting. Seems to have been renovated not long ago. Great WiFi connection for both our phones.
Considering the location, and if you don't expect a 5-start hotel which it's not, you will get great value for you money here. I'd keep an eye for this hotel chain in other cities I will travel in the future.

Room Tip: I'd probably ask for a high floor, though we didn't hear much noise at all.

We have stayed at this hotel three times now, twice with our eight-year-old grand-daughter who is a very experienced worldwide traveller, and she thinks the Oceania is first class. This time, our room had an internal door that stuck and would not close properly. We mentioned this as we went out for a walk. When we returned the door had been repaired and closed properly. This is the kind of service you hope to get in a hotel, but all too often it is not there. At the Oceania, it still is.

Our room was clean, bright and spacious with excellent air-conditioning (late July heatwave), and with a view of the vieux port that is one of the most beautiful sights you can find.

We still love the hotel, and look forward to our next stay there. We just hope our reviews don't prompt a price rise!

Room Tip: High up, overlooking the Place Gabriel Peri. Rooms for 3 are available on that side.

Top notch hotel in the center of Marseille. I would definitely stay here again if in Marseille. Across the street from the old port and very convenient to all the tourist stuff in Marseille. The room was clean and spacious with a great bathroom. Our window opened right onto the main street with views of the port. The staff spoke English well and were very friendly. Breakfast was great and had a wealth of options. Free Wifi also worked well. You will not be disappointed by staying here.

Part of what is evidently a large chain throughout France, we stayed here at the tail-end of a dream week in Aix en Provence---so that we could hang in Marseille, but also make it easily to our early flight. We had to leave before breakfast was served, so they had a boxed breakfast waiting for us at check out. Right at the old port, restaurants galore.

Room Tip: Of course, anything that views the old port.
