One of the better Novotels' we have stayed in (especially in France)... decent-sized rooms, good temperature control, clean linen clubbed with very professional house-keeping made our stay quite relaxing and enjoyable... the hotel is in close proximity to the metro station (Perrier station - less than a minute's walk) and it takes hardly 7-8 minutes to reach the city center (Old Port) by changing a couple of trains (Perrier station to Castellane via train M2, takes about 30 seconds and Castellane to Old Port via train M1, about 2-3 minutes). From the airport, it takes about 45 minutes to reach the hotel (take bus from airport to St. Charles station and from there to Perrier station via M2 train). Overall, Marseille is a well connected city and you can reach at any corner using the public transport system (trains, trams and buses)... you can also cover a large part of the city on foot :)
To sum-up, this is probably one of the best hotel (both budget-wise and by standards) to stay in Marseille and enjoy the magic the city has to offer :)
We stayed in Marseille for two days. The location of this hotel was great. It was about a 15 minute walk to the beach down a safe, busy street. Busses also ran down that street often. We took a short cab ride to Notre Dame de la Garde and it was inexpensive. We are the types that take Metro and busses whenever we can, and all of this was very convenient to the hotel. The desk staff was extremely personable and helpful. There's also a great restaurant located right across the street. Also, a huge bathtub was a nice option! Took a great bath in the tub.
