This sparkling new 5 star hotel is only a 5 minutes walk south from Marseilles Vieux Port. Based in an old building with beautiful characteristic elements like frescos and stylish stairwell. Still informal and small scaled. Even classic rooms are efficient, spacious, clean, modern, sound proof. Rooms on top floors have balcony and views, first and second floor look over a stylish courtyard and vertical garden.
Non alcoholic drinks (nespresso included) are free and refilled daily in your room
Small pool, bubble bath and relax area with fresh fruits, waters, small snacks
Staff very helpfull and informally 'navy' dressed
A glass of wine in the courtyard and enjoy the not too dominant 'deep' house music
While in Marseille don't forget:
A walk in old quarter le Panier (map and route avalible at hotel reception) and have a quiche in 'Cup of Tea' (Rue Casserie 1) which actually is a bookstore;
Visit la Notre Dame de la Garde, enjoy the view and have a basic lunch in its restaurant runned by nuns;
Ignore Rue St Firreol as main shopping street but visit paralell Rue Paradis or small streets in between;
Only visit 'the Calanques' by feet if you love a hike of at least an hour. Although views are beautiful, don't expect a deserted beach or lone swim in the end;
A drive to Cassis and have lunch in this lovely town;
Take a bus (line 83 from Vieux Port) to 'Valle des Auffes' and have Marseillan diner at Chez Jeannot (bus line 83 will take you to the beaches as well)
Marseille is often reviled and referred to as a dangerous city. This qualification of Frances oldest city is obviously outdated. Surprising and varied city trip destination if you love good food and variety of city and sea.
