Escale Oceania Marseille Vieux Port

Recent guest reviews

Nice quaint hotel, overlooking the old port.....would recommend

Only complaint would be that the room amenities could be higher quality, such as glassware instead of plastic and paper cups.

The hotel was in a perfect location in the middle of the vieux port area. We were lucky enough to get a room facing the harbor with the balcony and the view of the harbor and notre dame de la gard was incredible. Even without that room/view the hotel is well positioned as a hub for all your activities. The front desk is manned 24/7 and helped us arrange a cab for an early ride to the train station and mailed our post cards for us. The elevator was having some trouble when we were there but was being actively worked on and came back online quickly and staff were extremely aplogeric. Room was spotless. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Marseille.

The hotel is in a great location and is close to several good restaurants. The woman who checked us in was extremely welcoming and helpful. The breakfast is also a great value.

Great Hotel, perfect location...great staff...loved the room, the view, everything. I will be back.

Great location, few meters from the Marseille Vieux Port, Very kind service from the stuff Excellent breakfast This is THE hotel to be back in Marseille.

The location is great. Its 2 stops on the metro from the train station. The metro is right across the street, as is the bus. There are tons of restaurants and stores nearby including a supermarket and a tourist information center. Staff is friendly and helpful. Downfall would be the toilet in the room is seperate from shower and sink, so to wash your hands you have to go to another room which is gross. Also the water coming from the faucet stunk terribly! It was SO strong and foul smelling we used the shower water for everything we would have used the sink for.

Small but clean rooms. Great breakfast buffet. Location can't be beat. Would stay there again.

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.

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!
