    Wonderful location and great view”

    This hotel is right on the waterfront at Vieux Port, and two very easy Metro stops on Metro Line M1 from Marseille St Charles - Central Railway Station. The entrance is tucked between two restaurants and Reception is on the first floor up a broad set of stairs. Staff were helpful and friendly - and most seemed to be at least bilingual (French and English) at least. I paid EUR 20 extra to ensure a room with a view and was allocated Room 404 on the fourth floor (there is a tiny elevator so fourth floor is easy access after the first flight of stairs) which was small, but well-equipped and with windows looking straight into the harbour and the splendid sunset. Breakfast was quite satisfactory - and there are scores of restaurants nearby if still hungry. Excellent location and value for money.

    Only good for its location”

    This hotel is only good for its location. There is a staircase as you enter the hotel. We have to leave the keys at the reception every time we leave the room for security reasons. The lift is at the first floor so another staircase with luggage to get there. Our room was on the top floor and I've never seen something like that. It was very small. The room needs some refurbishment, so much it gives the impression it's not clean, even when it is. There is a big beem on the ceilling, not part of the decoration but because the room is in the attic. The floor was uneven so we were sleeping in a slanted position. We didn't get the view on the port but it didn't matter as the room was so bad. The breakfast is way too expensive for what they offer. You can get something cheaper from nearby restaurants. The WiFi is poor. The only plus point of this hotel is its location. Still I wouldn't recommend it because the experience of the stay is so bad, it spoils the trip at least a bit.

    A place to sleep”

    The hotel’s location is perfect, you are right in the middle of the harbour surrounded by restaurants and the parking garage is a 5 minute walk away. But don’t expect too much from the room. It’s very small. The bed of our room was already sagging in the middle. But I do have to admit that the room seemed very clean. Stay here to sleep. Spend the rest of your time outside.

    Very dirty room and slanted!”

    The room was very small and the entire room was slanted. It was noticeably higher near the window and lower towards the door, approximately 4 degrees. Doesnt sound like much but try sleeping with your hesd a lot lower than your legs. Also the bathroom shower stall wouldnt drain. If you take out out the drain plug it was completely black. Yes a bit gross. Luckily I was there one night only. The positive side: great location & close to the Metro which was across the street and restaurants/cafes are right next door.
