Good value for money, at this rate you cannot expect the Waldorf. Quicker refill of some items at breakfast would be appreciated.

Es el tipo de hotel que buscabamos para descansar una noche y continuar viaje por carretera al dia siguiente: buen precio, habitación limpia y poco espaciosa (dos adultos y dos niños) aunque suficiente para dormir cómodos. El servicio es correcto. Evidentemente ni el hotel ni los alrededores del mismo tienen ningún encanto especial para estar allí de turismo, aunque como he dicho es perfectamente recomendable para descansar una noche. Buen relación calidad-precio.

The manager is very friendly, hard-working and personal. Maybe the best budget hotel I have stayed in. Breakfast is more than just coffee and a danish, too. Frequented by a lot of low-budget business travelers.

The hotel was NOWHERE near Marseille. If you dont drive you have a 20 minite bus ride followed by a 35 minite walk (if you walk fast) alongside the motorway/highway, around roundabouts and past dead plants. When we got there the staff member was shocked we didnt ìhave a car, and the room smelled stale. There was loud noise from next door and the facilities looked dire. We stayed all of 45 minutes while looking on ther net to get telephone numbers for other hotels actually in Marseille. I will be fair the person working did try to be nice and wasnt rude but i would never visit this place again.
