This hotel is alright but not nice enough that I would return there if I went back to Marseilles. Its about a 10 minute walk to the main harbor, and an equal distance from the very colorful Cour Julien neighborhood. The hotel is just 5 minutes from a convenient metro to the main train station, which has frequent bus ('navette') connections to the airport.
Although the location is not bad, its on a fairly noisy street and it was impossible to sleep with the window open. My greater disappointment however was with the room - given the hotel branding and very cool decor in the lobby I was expecting a unique room. I'm sorry but sticking a Michael Jackson painting on the wall does not make it a 'music hotel' the room was otherwise very plain, stained carpeting and Ikea quality furnishings. When leaving the room across the hall was empty and open so I peeking there too, same story - a few rock and roll posters on the wall but otherwise quite ordinary.
The bathroom puzzled me - it actually had the nicest decor in the room with elegant tiling and a nice sink and vanity, however there was no shower curtain or way to prevent a flood in the bathroom even if you were careful while showering. Surely with the money they invested in the bathroom remodeling they could have considered a shower curtain?
On the plus side, the person working the desk was friendly, spoke good English and gave me some nice tips. And the room rate was fair for a big city, its much less than the overpriced hotels that surround the harbor. But as an overall experience I really could not say if I would return.
