Premiere Classe Marseille Centre

Recent guest reviews

If you're looking for a budget hotel to visit Marseille this is a fair place. Don't expect much (anyway from Premiere Classe) but you've got a clean basic room for a cheap price. Bathroom was basic but clean. Minus point though on electric plugs - we had a 3-person bedroom and there was only 1 electric plug available in the whole room.

My wife and i arrived in Marseille on july 22, 2017. We had travelled from Paris by train and the trip was wonderful. Upon arrival in Marseille we took the metro to an area close to our hotel. Arriving at street level we were horrified at the smell and condition of this area of Marseille. Even with a map in hand it took 30 minutes to find our hotel which didn't look to bad upon arrival. Our room was something else however. It was very tiny with an a/c unit that only barely made a difference in the 30c heat. The floor was unswept, the bathroom door didn't have a latch, there were tub -surround tiles loose and falling out, the shower nozzle was broken and sprayed water everywhere, the tub and sink drained too slowly making showering dangerous, the mixing taps for the shower changed temperature during showering, and the only bathroom light would go out unexpectedly needing a tap to restore it. We were supposed to stay three days at this hotel but instead checked out the following morning. We complained the the manager and were given a complete refund. We left right after that in a taxi. The nite we spent in Marseille wasn't any more appealing then our first initial view coming out of the metro. Garbage and dog crap everywhere. Some people like Marseille......we didn't......give it a second thought.

The property is located pretty central, 10 min walk from restaurants, Old Port, and other main historical buildings. Rooms are ok for 1-2 nights city breack. Wifi ok. Parking for 6 EUR and you have to put the car in a small elevator to take it to -5. The only real problem we had was that the walls are not soundproof and could hear every noise from other rooms, outside; we hardly slept that night.

The city is just not safe. I couldn't even feel safe in my hotel because if the noise coming from the streets at night! Just plain insecure. The breakfast is not palatable so just ignore and head downtown to find a fast food joint. The location was good, near main street but pretty much every street feels unsafe in Marseille.. Avoid the city like the plague

Rooms are not up to date, but for the price ok, Wlan was working, best of this Hotel is his location, in less then 10 mins walk you are at the old Harbor, for this reason I will book it again if I need to come back to Marseille,

We were here during the EuroCup 2016 in summer so that we couldn't expect more than this. Very good location, walking distance to everywhere included the main Metro center. The "car's elevator" is quite interesting experience. Recommended.

We needed a hotel quite central with parking available and this hotel ticked both these boxes. The hotel staff were very helpful with accessing the parking garage (it's below ground and you need to use an elevator!) and for the check in/out procedure. The rooms themselves were not very good though. Very dim lighting, some lights didn't work. Odd smell in the hallways and bathrooms. My colleague had a hole in her wall that needed patching up. The bathroom needed a lot of maintenance (dodgy shower curtain, toilet roll holder missing with holes in the wall where it was). But the bed was very comfortable and I had a decent nights sleep. It's cheap and therefore you get what you pay for. For a place just to rest your head it's fine.

The hotel seemed quite nice when we arrived, but more and more things bothered us. The room smelled like smoke quite strongly. It was really quite small, only a little bit of space left around the bed and hardly any closet space. The bathroom is also very tight. The service was quite good, they at least tried their best to speak English and give us advice on what to do in the area. There is a modern feel to the place, but I would not recommend staying more than a night. Or at least ask to change rooms next time!

Perfect location to visit most of the city centre by walk. Close to vieux port, only 10minutes away by walk. Transport was only needed to visit Notre Dame de la Garde because there are quite some steep hills. Room cleaning was done daily and towels changed daily. Not much to choose from in the breakfast. However there are many coffee bars and restaurants nearby so having breakfast elsewhere was not a problem.

Budget hotel, very similar to a Travelodge in both price and size of room. What sets it apart is the location and the secure parking available at just 6 euros a day The hotel wasn't easy to find, but was ideally located, 15 mins walk from the port and city centre. Although close to everything it was remarkably quiet on a night, but this could have been because we had a room on an upper floor overlooking the courtyard The room itself was very clean and comfortable, with air conditioning and television, but no English channels. As previously mentioned, having secure parking in the heart of the city was a real bonus, and for that reason alone I would highly recommend the hotel for anyone travelling to Marseille by car
