Positive Reviews

Friendly service and good value breakfast

The inexpensive optional breakfast buffet went down well with most diners, who said it was simple but nourishing, plentiful and decent value for money. Reviewers also spoke highly of the customer service, praising the multilingual personnel for being welcoming, friendly and professional.

Well-situated for links to central Marseille

Travellers were upbeat about the location of this property as it was close to public transport links enabling easy access to central Marseille highlights like the Old Port and shopping areas off La Canebière. Guests also appreciated the wide choice of dining options and convenience stores in the vicinity. Drivers welcomed the availability of reasonably-priced on-site parking and the convenience of having a petrol station over the road.

Clean and comfy rooms were reasonably-priced

The smartly-designed rooms were reportedly no frills but most guests found them to be more than sufficiently clean and comfortable for a shorter stay. There was further praise for the cosy beds, reliable free Wi-Fi and dependable hot showers. Plenty of reviewers felt it was good value as room rates were often competitive.

Negative Reviews

Parking lot was small

Even though motorists were pleased they had the option of affordable on-site parking, the underground spaces were a little tricky to negotiate for some nervous drivers.

Occasional grumbles over noise

Despite many guests reporting that this hotel was fairly tranquil, for some light sleepers the location near a hospital meant ambulance sirens and traffic noise were audible at times in certain rooms, causing them a nuisance.

Some critics felt rooms were flawed

The cocoon design concept of the rooms wasn't to everybody's taste and some critics felt the en suite shower and toilet were effectively just cubicles. Moreover, there were several visitors who felt the rooms were pretty small, especially at full occupancy.
