Recent guest reviews

helpful staff relocated us from a room that smelled of smoke when we first walked in the room

Clean room, nice hotel, very close to train station, a little far from downtown

Great location near to everywhere we plan to go. The room is spacious. We have a good time to walk to many places.

The hotel was across the street from the St. Charles train station. Easily in walking distance for the city.

Location is superb for arrival and departure by train or for the airport shuttle bus from the rear of the train station. Vieux Port is an easy 15-minute stroll downhill from the hotel; the uphill return trip is a bit of a puff, but not bad. We stayed two nights, and we found the hotel to be a convenient place from which to explore Marseille. The room was quiet, despite the business of the street outside. Our only disappointment was the continental breakfast, which was palatable but pedestrian, with coffee that was outright awful. Have breakfast across the street at the train station!

The HIE is right across the main Train / Coach Station so access could not be better. There is only a short walk to the downtown and port areas. However, at night, the location is not the best as there are beggars who loiter the streets. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.

couldnt find the hotel, dangerous area, drug dealers and hookers everywhere, left and drove another 2 hours to a safe place
