This is a very pleasant hotel,on a quiet street, only a 10-15 minute walk away from the central old port.Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room i stayed in, while small, was very comfortable and always spotless.Overall a very enjoyable stay.

My room smelled like humidity and cigarrette. We had to open the windows to make the ambiance better.

Part of a small chain originally catering for seafarers and their families and retaining a maritime theme. Renovation is a bit patchy but everything works. Location is a bit unfortunate: between a new business district and the ethnic quarter around the main station, neither of which is very good for eating out or entertainment.

this hotel is okay for the price, the surroundings could be better but there is a large supermarket around the corner and the old port is within a walking distance of 20 minutes

Given that I needed car parking and I was travelling with our dog, theoverall service was better than I expected, especially as the location was very cental to the "Vieux Porte" in Marseille.
