Recent guest reviews

Stayed for two nights and Linked it very much! Very central and near restaurants and shopping! Not the largest room, but very Nice and clean and with coffe/the boiler at hand. Helpful reseptionists.taxis round the corner can absolutely recommend this Hotel!

Three couples stayed two nights in this hotel last weekend for a wedding. The hotel was in a perfect location with the harbour at the bottom of the street. All the rooms, although not big, were adequate in size, extremely clean and had a nice bathroom with a good shower, the room was cleaned and bedding changed both days. Breakfast was buffet and there was plenty to choose from. The reception staff were very helpful and spoke good English which helped us. This is not a large hotel but it’s size makes it very friendly. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again anytime we are in Marseille

The staff were really great here; they anticipated my needs and offered a high standard of service. Breakfast was not included in the room rate however you can pay for either a small meal of pastry and drinks or the buffet. I recommend the buffet, as the apple cake we had on the last day was to die for!

Stayed one night in this hotel. I booked a room with a large bed and bathroom. Not sure if they offer rooms without bathrooms! Anyway, the staff is very friendly and helpful. I didn't get the chance to try the breakfast. The location is ideal, however it could get noisy during the weekend. Rooms are a bit old, but very clean.

The hotel is very well located, 1 min from the harbor and the bubbly centre of Marseille. Esay access from the train station ( 15min walk). The room was a bit small but clean. The staff at the reception were very helpful and welcoming !

I had the opportunity to visit Marseille for the first time in my life. I had wanted to visit ever since Jimmy Buffett sang about its coast many years ago. I was enchanted by its depiction in the movie "The Count of Monte Cristo" and Le Chateau d'If in its Harbor. I jumped at the chance to come. I did my research, and found the Hotel Carre Vieux Port. I wrote this review to tell everyone why I found this place exceptional and rated it 5 stars. First and foremost, this hotel has, without a doubt the best location of any hotel I have stayed in relative to transportation, shopping, attractions, churches and of course, the old port. There is literally a metro station at the corner! Even if one had a car, it is so easy to use the metro that it rendered a car a hassle. Everything was within easy walking distance: ferries to the Chateau d'If and the other harbor islands as well as an enormous number of restaurants and bars. When I walked in, I was early for my room. My flight had a very early morning departure time. I initially planned just to drop off my luggage and leave. However, in what is a powerful example of customer service, a room was arranged for me right then! Marion should be applauded for such service. But it didn't stop there. She gave great recommendations for places to eat, how to manage the metro system, which passes to get as well as the best way to see the islands and Le Chateau d'If. The room was thoroughly refurbished and the quality of the materials was great. Grohe fixtures were used in the bath, which would be able to accommodate someone with disabilities. A shower assembly with easy access was present. The toilet was modern and tall. Nice toiletries were also provided, as was a coffee maker with biscuits. The view was pleasant and plenty of outlets were placed for electronics. A large Samsung TV was built into the corner. The bed was comfortable and efficiently arranged. You leave the key when you leave the hotel, which gives you a personal touch each time you return. I had a conference call that I had to take, and Coralie arranged for me to use their conference room. Superior. Customer. Service. I truly enjoyed my stay here, and I will try to come back again as soon as possible. This hotel is an incredible value for the money spent, but it is the intangibles that put it over the top. I preferred this to many luxury hotels I've stayed in. It was a fantastic experience.

Great location next to the port however the rooms are incredibly small. Literally just enough space to walk past the end of the bed so by the time you have two suitcases in there you have to climb over them to get anywhere. The window was. Sry high up in the room and did feel a tad claustrophobic. Bed comfy. Room was well serviced with hairdryer, towels, soaps, tea and coffee though. Couldn't connect to the wifi and no English channels on the tv, BBC world would have been good. Going d for a bad bit nothing more. Staff were lovely.

I became ill while on a business trip, and it really hit me while staying at the Carre Vieux Port Marseille. The staff there took great care of me, especially the lady running the breakfast room making a special drink for me on my last day there (when my symptoms had really hit me hard). They recommended a pharmacy, and a couple of local shops where I could find some things I needed. The staff made it their mission to assist me in any way they could, and I greatly appreciate their care.

Stayed here for two nights to attend a Rugby game. Staff were very helpful and friendly! Rooms were tiny with not much room for any luggage, but very clean and in a great location steps from the port!

Was for 2 days business trip in Marseille. And this hotel was my home for 2 days on Cote d'azur. Nice rooms. Good service. And what I remember is specific smell in hotel that alwasy will asociate with Marseille :) It was nice but specific!
