Great sightseeing location

Hotel was right across the street from the metro, a stones throw to the port with tons of choices of cafes, restaurants and amazing views up to Notre Dame. Our room faced toward the city which was fine & they gave me a nice balcony which I had requested. However there was no coffee maker which we noticed in other rooms. When I asked they said our room didn't come with one. That seems strange to me as that is a pretty common amenity even in budget hotels. Also there is no ice maker or way to get ice in the hotel. We had to go to a restaurant and beg for ice which was really inconvenient. Another pretty common amenity that as world travelers we have come to take for granted.

Take the little train up to the Cathedral Notre Dame. The views and vistas are amazing and the cathedral took our breath away. Not to be missed.

Pristine location, clean and friendly.

Escale Oceania Vieux Port is situated perfectly on Marseille's famous old port. It is literally opposite the metro exit so is easily accessible if arriving by train. It's spot on La Canebiere means you can walk through the heart of Marseille and branch off to other areas as you please. The rooms were very clean and everything worked to a high quality. Staff are relaxed and helpful, and the hotel is located opposite the tourism centre, making it easy to plan your daily sightseeing.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Located only a short walk along the port, La Kahena provides a lovely Tunisian dining experience, exhibiting Marseille's North African influence. Staff have limited English but are very friendly and the food is wonderful.

great location

great location, plenty of restaurants nearby and close to metro station. room was not big, simple but reasonably clean. mattress was slightly "sinking" in the middle and no slippers provided (I am east Asian). stayed in the hotel in a bitterly cold February and very grateful for the good adjustable heating in the room. Friendly staff. All in all a decent 3 star hotel.

Good location, reasonable room

Stayed at a 2-star in Vieux Port earlier in the trip and it was dismal even though it was recommended in several guide books. This hotel had an equally great location (right next to the subway, very close to the bus terminal, very close to shopping and tourist stuff). Room was clean & neat. The bed was comfortable. Looks like a fairly modern room. Wifi worked well. Staff was helpful providing suggestions.

Quite nice, helpful staff

The hotel is right next to the tourist portion of the harbor. Great location to walk to many sites. The room was very clean and modern. Comfortable beds. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. Breakfast was good. I'd definitely stay there again!
