The hotel rooms were clean and spacious, the bedding most comfortable, and the free wi-fi superfast. The corridors smelled like tobacco smoke, but the rooms themselves did not. My husband, adult daughter and I stayed here and so I'm basing this on the two rooms we had (on two different floors). The hotel is in a great location to explore Marseilles, but will probably be more enjoyable once the construction across the street from it is completed. We paid the 8 Euro fee for parking and were so surprised by the security of the parking garage - garages, actually. Upon checking in they give you a fob and two keys on a key ring. You will use the fob to open the outside garage door on the parking garage. Once inside, you will look for your assigned parking garage - yes, a garage within a garage. You will open this door with one of the keys on the ring and after parking your car you again lock the garage door. Pretty secure to be sure. Upon exiting the garage you will use the second key to open the gates to exit the garage walkways so you can enter the street, adjacent to the hotel. All this as a security measure made me wonder about the neighborhood, especially since it looked a bit run down and is very near the train station. But, safety wasn't a problem. We walked to dinner that night and returned home about 11:30 p.m. - and felt very safe in doing so.
The hotel offered breakfast for 10 Euro per person but we elected not to do that and instead grabbed a croissant and coffee at the brasserie across the street from the train station.
