4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed here for 4 nights on a business trip to Marseille. Hotel was very comfortable and staff very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Good restaurant and bar menu for lunch and dinner and comprehensive breakfast buffet. I would recommend. Ten minute cab ride to the Congress Centre.

Stayed at the Golden Tulip for 3 nights during a conference in Marseille. Great location - five minutes walk from seafront and beach, and 15 minutes to Rond point du Prado by bus where there is access to the metro and Parc Chanot Marseille convention centre. Room was large with a balcony overlooking the park and had a side sea view. Bed was comfortable and very big! Bathroom was also modern and again very spacious. Everything was spotlessly clean. Staff were friendly and efficient, and breakfast was plentiful with a good choice. Unfortunately the pool and steam room was not available to use while I was there but this did not impact on my stay. My only disappointment was the lack of facilities to make and store drinks in the room - there was a coffee maker with two pods of coffee and two disposable cardboard cups, but no fridge if you wanted to store cold water/fresh milk. As I don't drink coffee I would have liked to be able to make a cup of tea or hot chocolate on an evening. The bottled water was also not replaced after the first night. I believe drinks could be ordered from the bar or on the room service menu, but given the price of the room I would expect these amenities to be included. Overall, a very pleasant hotel, but be prepared to buy drinks/snacks from the shop across the road if you don't want to pay hefty room service charges or go to the bar.

Came for convention, so accommodation was tight - and expensive. Chose somewhere a bit out of town, but easy to get to the sights and the old port by taxi or bus. A short walk past the racecourse to the beach. Lovely weather, so very easy to sit in the sun, drinking, watching and working out what version on Moules to try next!!

Stayed here whilst attending a conference in Marseille. 4 nights. The rooms are a little tired and the showers are a bit of a pain. They soak the room if you are not careful. However the staff are very helpful and friendly. The food was good. I only ate breakfast there but that was very good. It takes a bus or taxi to get to most places which are about 10 mins away. Overall, good rather than very good.

Room was acceptable, clean & wide. I liked the breakfast buffet which stays till 10:30 am. Internet speed was acceptable, the staff are friendly & helpful. There is a turkish restaurant in front of the hotel but other than that there is nothing around, it takes around 15-20 min by taxi to reach vieux port.

I got there with a short notice. Just requested a quite room. The receptionist was extremely helpful and gentle. He got me a room that was a little more expensive then the average but that was overlooking Marseille's horse racing track. It was very quite and I could relax and work in absolute peace. The personnel of the restaurant/bar are very helpful and gentle although professional

Nice hotel, very friendly staff, excellent food with a special mention for the buffet-breakfast, wide choice of - French - newspapers to start the day on the terrasse, comfortable beds. Some rooms are nicer and bigger than the others and it might be a good decision to pay for a superior room especially if you want a nice view and not looking the pharmacy shop next door :-)) To be noticed... The swimming-pool is a bit on the small size compare to the feeling you have when you look at some pictures on the website of the hotel. One major point... You're in the middle of nowhere and a car is just essential !!!!

Highly recommend this hotel for couples and families. We went for our engagement celebration and had a fantastic time. Very close to beach ,fun fair, restaurents huge park , race course , pubs Close to museums and large supermarket. Great food images attached fantastic chef and lots to choose from some nights music entertainment in the lobby / restaurant area and it was really nice Across the road from hotel a great bakery for breakfast pastries and sandwiches very reasonable Great pool and beds we saw the red arrows rehearsing whilst we was there Spacious rooms very clean

Everything was great except the safety not working and no mini bar and no courtesy coffee machine or tea for this price and the class of the Hotel this is a bad point ,also, breakfast way too expensive .

So this hotel could easily have rated 4 points but for a couple of incidents which were wholly unnecessary. Basically any business should respect their guests, not lie to them and not rip them off. However they had a bar mitzvah in a Sunday. Nothing wrong with that but the hotel allowed the music to shake our room till well past midnight. On a Friday or Saturday or in the middle of the summer season this could be understood if not condoned. But on a Sunday in October when paying guests have to work the next day it is unacceptable. For all business guests I would whole heartedly invite you to find somewhere else. The second incident was in the bar which was long and I won't go into details but the barman both clearly lied to me and was clearly underserving measures. Both of which meant we no longer on the last day used any further of the hotels paid services. All in all I would find somewhere else. I certainly will be next time I'm in the area.
