Residhotel Grand Prado3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The ResidHotel Grand Prado is well located close to bus, tram and metro transport. Furniture in the apartments has recently been replaced. These modest apartments have well equipped kitchens and comfortable beds.
The suite had enough space for 5 people, and includes a stove and refrigerator. The staff provides maps and directions to nearby sites. The metro is one block away, and there is a grocery store down the block with excellent selection and prices. One annoying thing was the room keys had to be re-keyed every day. There is a washer and dryer, but it is on the small side and costs 5 euros exact change just for the washer, and 3 more for the dryer. You have to pay 7 euros if you want additional towels after a few days, but we just washed ours with our clothes.
Air conditioning is very poor, I would have massive concerns for anyone staying in room 417 when the heat reaches it peak in Marseille. Despite all efforts, it was cooler to leave the balcony door open then it was to have air conditioning on. The room was otherwise comfortable and the location is very good. One of the drawers in the table was broken but I didn't use it in any case. Shower was very good. The microwave was good to have the use of but the stovetop was very slow in heating up.
Stayed here three nights. Sizeable room with balcony, kitchen and dining area attached complete with fridge, microwave and all the usual utensils/crockery. It's a two-minute walk from Perier Metro station and each morning there's a vibrant street market just around the corner that closes at 1.00pm. If you're looking for a reasonably-priced base this should suit the bill. Last time I stayed here (out of season, admittedly) I had a much larger apartment for the same price, but no grumbles. Highly recommended for anyone traveling on a budget.
Good apartments, well positioned in the centre of city with big store at a stone's throw. Breakfast is not free, but tasty. The kitchen is equipped with all the minimum necessary, including a coffee maker, the use of which I have not mastered. Cleaning is done from time to time, but taking out the garbage is the guest duties, and changing towels is paid.
Found getting about from here not bad at all with most of the attractions about a half hour walk away in any direction. As I was there for the football it was also walking distance from the stadium. It is very basic but clean and I would recommend it. The kitchen is handy if you are looking to keep costs down and prepare your own meals or store a few cold waters and beers. Minor gripes: the place could do with some re-decorating and modernisation. The toaster fused the sockets and I had to reset the trip switch in the fuse box. There was also an issue with the boiler which was being fixed when I was there so I had a couple of cold showers.
The room is big with kitchen, utensils and tools for people who need to stay longer and can/will cook. Bed is clean - 2 single beds merged as one big bed was good for us. It is in not in the center so there is about 40 minute walk to the Old Port. Breakfast is included with standard French options of bread, crepe, cheeses, bacon & egg coffee etc. Few things notable: the cleaner did not notice cig butts in the balcony. There are no toiletries, toothbrush, toothpaste and no hair dryer so you might consider bringing one. Receptionist is nice and welcomed with complete instructions. It is not a poshy place but good enough to sleep at after a long day’s walk.
Very comfortable. Well situated Superb price Very clean room Our second visit. Not our last. Love the fact that there is a useful kitchen Impressed that every room has a balcony Very quiet place Close to the metro and buses so that travel was good
Hotel location near Castellane market & Perier metro station. Easy to access downtown & port. Great price for a room where one can cook & store delicious cheeses to bring home. Bathroom has great water pressure & a bath!
We stayed in room 518 for 3 nights. It's a good sized room with a kitchenette and good sized bathroom with a good water pressure. The hotel is extremely basic and really dated, with very visible tear and wear. The hobs switches in the kitchenette lost the labels indicating heat levels and took ages to heat up. The air con was not working at all even if set to 5 degrees and the room felt like a greenhouse with over 20 degrees outside. The bulb in the kitchenette was melted and the extractor fan wasn't working. There were ants in the kitchen as well. On the other side, the breakfast was good with great selection.
