Great Place”

The Holiday Inn Express was in a great location for me. I was in Marseille to embark on a Mediterranean cruise. I took the train from Paris and just had to cross the street to the hotel. The hotel was also just a short walk to town and the plaza by the sea. Only spent one night, breakfast was good, then took a short cab ride to the port. Would definitely stay again if in Marseille. I would have given an excellent to everything but I always think there is room for improvement no matter what.

Excellent location to train station ”

Literally across train station, and subway, perfect if you need a transfer the next day. 15 -20 mns walk to old port and other main area. Lots of area around mainly Arabic resto, not much. Supermarket next door. Breakfast included in hotel price is an excellent plus.p, and with good quality. Staff are welcoming and courteous, room are basic but clean. Overall, this is the best hotel near the train area imo for the value of money, clean, safe, breakfast incl, convenient.

Comfortable bed, close to train station”

proximity to train station, comfortable bed, spacious room

The bedroom design is nice and clean. The bedding and pillows are comfortable. Breakfast is a bit short of expectation as food and drinks are not refilled in a timely manner and the croissants are not very fresh. However, it can still be considered of fair quality. If one is considering a place close to the train station, this is a good choice. However, it is not close to major tourist spots (the vieux port area) and takes approximately 15 min walk. While one can take the subway from hotel area to the port district, the crowdedness and concern for security at the station area may be an issue to consider.

Hotel is across the street from the train station. Area is sketchy and run down.

The hotel itself is very nice. It is new, clean, rooms are spacious. The staff is very nice and friendly. Hotel offers free wifi internet in the rooms. While it was convenient to be across the street from the train station, the area is kind of sketchy and run down. However, if you are looking for a stopover and need to be close to the train its a perfect location. Not many restaurants in the area. About a 25 minute walk to the Port where there are many restaurants.

My second time at the hotel. Located just across the train station from where an airport shuttle bus also leaves, therefore very handy, as welll for late arrivals. Rooms are pretty complete and comfortable. Breakfast buffet is self service but with all you need. A handy supermarket just 2 min walk beside and to walk to the old port its about 15-20 min on a nice road with plenty of shops. Perfect also for those wanting to discover the city.

I stayed at this hotel last year. It is a modern hotel of great location. This time, I asked for a hotel room that was not facing the train station. Happy to be allocated a room of great view. Very nice. I love it. However, the same issue that happened last year occured again. The toilet, the smell of the toilet was very strong, just like as if you were at the public toilet. I don't know whether it is something wrong with the smell of the detergent or because the toilet does not clean properly. I have to close the toilet door when sleeping. Since it was a nice room, I didn't ask for a change.
