"Great stay at Quality Hotel Marseille Vieux Port"
I stayed at the Quality Hotel last week for 3 nights. My friend and I shared a room with twin beds (which are pushed together and can't be separated, due to the built-in nightstands on either side. Must be a European thing!). This is an excellent hotel for the price. It's in a great location--a 10-minute walk from the train station and less than 5 minutes to Vieux Port. The rooms are clean and adequately large (spacious by Paris standards, though smaller relative to North American hotel rooms); the bathrooms are modern, with a decent-size shower with rainfall shower head; the beds are comfortably firm; and the staff are really helpful (all spoke English). We didn't have the hotel breakfast, opting instead to venture out for breakfast in the morning, but I did check out the breakfast, which looked pretty standard--fruit, cereal, pastries, machine coffee.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. Marseille is a great base to explore other towns, such as Cassis and Aix en Provence, and the city boasts a "gritty" vibrancy unlike any other!
Lovely new hotel. Very modern and stylish. Beds so comfy and whole place spotlessly clean. Roomy bathroom with soft fresh towels
Lovely to have tea / coffee making facilities. Every member of staff very friendly and efficient. Great breakfast. Fab location near sea front, MuCem and Le Panier but only 10 minute walk from Vieux Port. Would definitely return
This was my second stay here, which was better than the first. All reception staff spoke English and were very friendly and helpful. My room was on the street side, with a balcony, but I heard no street noise due to the double pane glass. The bed was super comfy, with extra pillows. The bathroom was large, with lots of towels and toiletries. Complimentary bottled water was also provided. Breakfast offered a variety of foods; breads, cheese, ham, cereals, jams, croissants, yogurts, fresh fruit, juices, coffee and tea. Great that the service continued to noon for the late sleepers, like me. There is a rental bicycle rack in front of the hotel for those who are willing to pedal the hilly streets. Tons of restaurants nearby, from cheap eats to high end. There is a new supermarket, U Express, as you take a right out of the hotel door and walk a short distance. It offers ready made food, fresh fruits, alcohol and anything else you may need.
The staff and the hotel owner are very friendly and helpful. Our room and especially the bathroom had been recently renovated. We stayed on the top floor. The hotel has a small 2 person elevator, but I always used the spiraling stair case. The hotel is on the corner of narrow streets in this section of Marseille known for antique shops and the location is convenient for walking around Marseille. We arrived by train and caught a taxi to the hotel. There are very nice restaurants on streets around the hotel where I had what was probably my best meal on this short 8 day trip to France.
