Recent guest reviews

We were glad to arrive late at night and found the hotel is so close to the train station. The room is simple and clean. The staff is friendly and thanks for her recommendation and direction that we were able to fully utilized one day to see Marseille. We had a glitch on the air-conditioner at night but they could not fix till next day, the front desk politely apologized and offered free cold bottles of water and promised to offer more if we need which made you feel better. From the hotel you can easily to walk to the old town/port area and for about 20 minutes you can take bus #60 to Notre-Dame de la Garde from the old port. There is a small pizza shop near by that you can buy bottled water if stores at train station are closed.

We stayed here in June. The Hotel is conveniently situated opposite Saint Charles Railway Station. There is a Metro line into the City and Old Port. Our room was spacious and comfortable. It had a good shower room, comfortable bed and air conditioning. Breakfast was excellent. There was a pleasant lounge area with a small bar and a good outside terrace. We had an enjoyable two day stay and I would thoroughly recommend this Hotel.

Nxt to St Charles train and bus station. A walk to the vieux port. We used the parking at a separate fare for our rented car.the breakfast was good.the room was sufficient. The bed and sofa bed comfortable. The staff friendly and recommended nice places for our young children.

Stayed here for 6 nights for holiday the room is comfortable the bed gave 6 good nights sleep . The staff were excellent The breakfast is ok as per other reviews , staff start closing down and cleaning coffee machines prior to ceasing breakfast (irritating) also having to ask for buffet to be refilled as staff not checking regularly Other than this fair value for money and a centrally located hotel for touring the coastline.

This hotel is conveniently located just in front of the train station which is great if you arrive late by train. The staff is polite, the hotel is quiet, has wi-fi and (my fare at least) offeres a basic breakfast. The rooms are the standard size for a Holiday Inn express, i.e. small. The quality of the breakfast buffet could be improved and staff should refrain from starting to clean the coffee/juice machines until the breakfast is over (unless strictly necessary). Overall the hotel is simple but convenient, slightly overpriced for an "express" but you pay for the great location. I will stay there again in my nest trip to Marseille.

I stayed here for 3 nights last week. Literally opposite the railway and bus stations. I'd requested a 'panoramic' room and indeed I was on the 6th floor at the rear of the hotel looking across the rooftops towards the port and islands beyond. My room was very quiet with a comfortable bed. The decor was a little 'tired' and probably due a re-paint soon. Nice shower, but towels a little thin and scratchy. Good selection of TV channels including BBC1 and 2. Very good buffet breakfast included, and a nice outside seating area for breakfast or to enjoy an evening cold beer. Overall for the reasonable price I paid, I was very impressed and would stay here again.

Exploring the Provence Area this is the place to stay! The train,bus and Taxis Stand directly across the street from this hotel in the Saint Charles Area...No noise! The rooms are clean and beds are very drawback is the bathroom waste basket is very,hairdryer and flat screen TV are provided...the price is right! The front desk staff are friendly and accommodating to your every need..The inclusion of the breakfast with the price of your room...let me say the best I have had anywhere in my travels!

This is a very attractive hotel right opposite the main Railway station in Marseille.At the station you can pick up trains and the Metro,and immediately behind it there are coaches and buses.It therefore is in an ideal location for wherever you wish to go.Coaches run from the airport non stop to St Charles Station very regularly.It couldn't be in a more convenient location. We liked the decor,and we had a bright and comfortable room.A perfectly adequate continental breakfast is included,and we found the staff particularly friendly,welcoming,and helpful, despite my dreadful French.Both the lounge,bar area and breakfast room were modern and pleasant.Light meals and snacks are also available from the bar at certain times.Booked in advance it is good value for money,

This hotel perfectly meets Holiday Inn Express standards. It won't surprise you either in good or bad direction. It is clean, comfortable enough, you get a complementary breakfast and internet access. On the top of it, it's conveniently located right next to Saint Charles train station, 15 minutes walk to the old port downtown (Vieux-Port quarter). I had a nice stay.

A standard hotel, clean room, comfortable bed, good breakfast. Well located by the train station for bus access to the airport. About 15 min walk to the old harbour. Staff very friendly and helpful. If you are stopping in Marseilles for a longer break you might be better closer to the harbour to enjoy more of the atmosphere
