New Hotel Bompard4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We liked this area (Bompard) just 10 minutes walk from the Corniche, 20 mins from the Old Port and on a good bus route (61, 80). The hotel is modestly priced, appropriate for its slightly rundown state.
The perfect place is you're looking for a trip back in the cheap late 80s Design, mixing neo-Barrocco furniture (glossy white curved legs cabinets! In 2017!), false middle-age oak balustrade bar, kinda contemporary sculptures on plastic lawns... Bathrooms are from another world too : flush gets stuck every time you use it, and the open shower is so small that in a minute the whole bathroom gets flooded. Breakfast makes you forget you're in the south of France, products reminding you of any international 3 star airport hotel. Reception staff is nice and efficient though, but beware of the dragon supervising breakfast, who checks if you take the mug in the right pile or not. And if not....
This gem is tucked discretely and comfortably away from the hustle of modern Marseille. It is as much a 'retreat' as a hotel. If your are on business in Marseille and are looking for a quieter, less crowded, and more scenic alternative to the high-end, multi-story luxury hotels in the heart of Vieux Port, you should consider this option. For 2 weeks during 2013 my colleagues and I enjoyed our stay at the Bompard while on business in Vieux Port district and Palais du Pharo (international conference), which is within a 20-minute walk from the hotel -- the ideal time for an energizing start to your business day and decompression time at the end. Our afternoon stroll back took us along the Rue d'Endoume providing convenient access to multiple dining and cocktail options. Breakfasts at the New Hotel provided a delicious start to each work day. While on the smaller side, rooms are clean, modern, comfortable, and surrounded by gardens with ample patio seating. Meeting rooms and catering for two business meetings we held were excellent: comfortable, productive, and scenic, with delicious food and local wine options. A short jog down the hill (south) from the hotel leads to the Corniche President JFK, with ample running opportunities along the beautiful coastline in either direction.
We spent 2 nights atBompard's hotel - the location is nice, fantastic garden and swimming pool is well kept although not big. The restaurant and staff were very nice, and the rooms clean and well equipped. It was not as close to the vieux port as hoped but very friendly and helpful staff helped us get where we wanted to go. The location is beautiful.
The Hotel is in a quiet area of former summer Houses in Marseille. Nice inner Garden with a swimmingpool. The Room I got had it's on entrance door. Very nice decorated bathroom, good bed and a nice breakfast.
spent a week at the Bombard. What I liked: the hotel is in a nice and calm area of Marseille, breakfast is good. What I did not like: front-office staff is not very friendly or helpful (rather indifferent attitude), extremely slow internet, and a small and cold room at a relatively high price.
Hidden away in the Bompard section of Marseille. Hard to find, at first, but simpler with gps. Quiet, lots of parking, nice grounds, good restaurant. High-end restaurants along the Cornische are best accessed by taxi (€10 each way). Getting to Vieux Port takes about 30 - 45 mins on foot, but can be better than trying to find parking. Bus and taxi also available - good idea if traveling with small children.
We stayed there for one night but really enjoyed the room, the service (possibility to have room service for breakfast until noon and late check out when you ask) and the surroundings. It is great to be able to have breakfast in a calm place outside in the city and enjoy the swimming pool. Definitely a great place for an affordable price.
Very nice hotel with good breakfast in a chilled garden with many trees. Breakfast included fresh bread, fresh orange juice and fruits. Check in was quick and reception was very helpful to give a short but useful guidance to city. Rooms are clean and neat. Bathrooms look very new. Location is nice but a bit far away from harbour/city center. All in all it was a great experience, definitely recommended.
My fiancé and I stayed here for a week in August. We stayed in a basic room which was our error as we didn't appreciate that the basic rooms did not have a balcony which would have made our stay much more pleasurable as it did at times feel slightly claustrophobic. The rooms were nice enough but in need of refurbishment and needed a thorough cleaning . The bathroom was kept clean but the rest of the room had not been cleaned properly in some time. The air conditioning also let off a very unpleasant smell several times during our stay. The rest of the hotel is clean and well maintained. It could do with an update and amenities are limited. The staff were overall very friendly although their English was limited there is however one very nice English member of staff who helped greatly . Meal times did seem erratic and we frequently ended up missing lunch as the times seemed to change each day ( some days lunch was served until 2:30 and others 2:00 ) and there was no where to get snack if you did miss lunch. Dinner is not served until 7:30 and breakfast finishes at 10:00 so you did go hungry if you missed lunch. Food here is expensive €18 euros for a main course although you can get a deal where two courses is €25 but it is very nice. Wine was also expensive , given that it was local wine a bottle costs €23 each. You can get food and much cheaper at the port. The hotel is located some way outside the centre of Marseille around a 20 minute walk or €8 -€12 euros in a taxi ( would recommend getting a uber if you can as these are cheaper than the taxis the hotel will call for you) . This is not necessarily a bad thing as the hotel is quiet and it is close to the Notre - Dame which is a 10-15 min walk. The closest beach is around 10 minute walk if you can find a direct route. There is a not a huge amount to do in Marseille and whilst there are some leaflets in reception for excursions the reception staff were not great at organising any of these for you . We did however manage to get on a boat trip for €26 Euros , if you go to the port you can just turn up in the morning for one of the tours and buy a ticket . This was much better value for money than the trips being offered by the tourist office. Overall a Luke warm stay a few small changes could be done to make the experience more welcoming and comfortable .
