Ibis Budget Marseille Vieux Port
Ranked #57 of 131 Hotels in Marseille
Reviewed 14 September 2012

We fell in love with Marseille whilst staying at this incredibly central hotel so could almost forgive the hotel's shortcomings. We paid very little to stay there, making it affordable for a 3 night break, but everything about the room we had was below the standard of other budget hotels I've stayed in. The room was tiny and bare with room to hang just one or two items of clothing. There was no window, just a skylight so no view and felt very claustrophobic. The bathroom was old and dirty, with scratchy towels and terrible cheap toilet paper. Our door was difficult to use (it has a code system) and one day it was open when we returned (cleaners, dodgy lock, who knows?)!!! Next time we visit Marseille we'll steer clear.

The rooms are basic but clean and confortable. The staff is friendly and professional. Great location - only a step away from the Vieux Port.
A bit expensive for the standard of the hotel but this is probably due to the central location.

A clean, quiet and nice hotel very near the old port. Not the best brekfast, but ner a lot of good places to eat. If you don't want to spend all your mony in accomondation but want a nice and good sleep it's the hotel to chose.

The only reason that hotel is worth staying is because you are in the centre of Marseille and you don't need to take any public transport to do things.

However, there is a continuous smell of cigarette in both parts of the hotel and ... let's start...

room 1: sixth floor, very strong smoke scent and when we switched the "air-con" it was a massive fan with an helicopter sound... extremely bare minimum (1 bed, 1 table, 1 stool) and 2 windows and 2 doors to soundproof the room... No thanks!

room 2 (the last one with a double bed): first floor in the old building (street level), light smoke scent, real air-con working. Double windows again, but with an additional electric panel to bloke the sunlight and a thick curtain (even a vampire could stay here, good), single door but an handicap shower room (why not) When I took my shower I realised that the water wasn't disappearing and was building a bit too much. The whole room was filled with a thick layer of water that was crippling in the bedroom. I pulled the drain and discovered dirt, hair and more things that i could describe and as soon as I did that the water drained in seconds... tasty...

Even though I made more trips to the reception that anyone would accept, the staff has always been wonderful, helpful and kind. They know Marseille like the back of their hand and guided us over the map like the tourism office would do...

I'm writing from the room, hoping that we'll survive the night. If anything else goes wrong you'll be the first one to know...

Room Tip: Check the room as much as you can before setteling...

This hotel was dirty but Marseille doesn't offer a whole lot in terms of accommodation unless you want to spend Ritz-prices on something. The room was old, small, and bare minimum but it was cheap, what could you expect. The lobby is deceptively nice in comparison to the rest of the building. I don't think smoking is allowed but it sure smelled like it. nice TVs though, so I guess that's something.
