“Good basic hotel, terrible location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

I stayed here for 3 nights as a solo female traveller.
My first idea that the hotel was not in a great location was having to pay 20€ for the taxi from the train station to the hotel. The area it self was not very nice. There was a lot of traffic, a lot of rubbish everywhere and a lot go beggars. It is a 10/15 minute walk to the nearest metro station (rond-point du prado) and I personally felt a little unsafe to walk around by my self at night so chose to stay in the hotel in the evenings.
The hotel itself was lovely. The staff were fab and very friendly but some not very fluent in English. My room was a good size and well decorated. The bed was extremely comfortable, although my room was next to the elevator so there was some noise at night. Although there was no mini bar, it did have a kettle which was more important to me and also room service was available if required.
My only issue with the room was that although the shower looked lovely and impressive, the basin was not deep enough and so the water would spill over on to the floor. This meant you could not turn the shower up very high as the water wouldn't drain away fast enough.
I would not recommend this hotel to solo travellers due to the area but would to a larger group or couples.

Room Tip: Ask for a room further away from the elevator as there was a lot of noise from other guests.

Upon entering the room decided to go to the port, the road to the metro station Rond-Point du Prado (15 minutes) so-so, especially late at night, if you know what I'm talking about Marseille. The hotel itself is good, everything is clean and adequate service

Stayed here for two weeks. Very clean hotel and staff very helpful. They speak english. Unfortunately rooms are very basic. No mini fridge in room, no laundry service and no in room services. Restaurant at the hotel has a very enjoyable cuisine. Would recommend for a shorter stay and also will need a rental car since its a 20+ min walk from downtown. Very noise since its close to highway.

I came here on an organized coach trip so I don't actually know how much a room is but I reckon it's quite reasonable. The hotel itself is perfectly adequate for a short stay but, as it's a bit out of the city of Marseilles, it isn't really in a convenient location. Our room was clean and the bathroom quite modern however there was no loo brush for some reason, which is a first! There were, on the other hand, tea and coffee making facilities which you don't often get in a 3-star chain hotel. The one thing I would suggest to the management, though, is somewhere for you to rest your tray on when you're choosing your breakfast from the buffet. In some areas, particularly the yoghurts and cereals, it was quite a balancing act as there was no ledge in front of the food.
