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.

The hotel is in a very good location, 15 minutes walk from to the old port, 2 minutes from the tube station. There is a market on the main street outside the hotel where you can buy fresh fruit and also a patisserie and a supermarket where we bought some fresh bread, pastries and other things. The owner was amazing, spoke good English and helped with all the questions we had about Marseille. We asked for a kettle in a room to make our own tea/coffee and he organised that for us with no fuss. We also got an iron and a hair-dryer - everything we needed really. There was also a fridge in our room. The hotel is 2 stars so don't expect anything too posh but it was tidy, clean and perfect for a 3 night stay.
"Fantastic location with friendly, helpful staff."
Stayed just the one night before beginning a cruise in Marseilles. A very nice hotel in a fantastic central location. The Castellane Metro station (which is one of the crossover stations between the two metro lines in Marseilles) is only a few minutes walk away, so a perfect base from which to explore the city. My partner and I were able to get a bus from the Airport to Gare-St-Charles and a metro from there to Castellane, so avoided an expensive taxi ride to the hotel. The staff at the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful, with good to excellent English. We were able to leave our bags at the hotel when we arrived too early for check-in and also pick them up late on the day of our departure. The breakfast was very nice, with a range of bread, croissants, cereals, cheeses and meats. The rooms were relatively large, with good size bathrooms. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The only (and very minor) negative comment I would have about this hotel is that everything was purple! The corridors and room are rather garishly decorated in an overpowering shade of purple, which is my only reason for marking the hotel down to a 4 on 'condition'. Overall, a very pleasant experience (particularly in respect of the staff, who I can't emphasise enough how friendly and welcoming they were). Highly recommended.
Please note the entrance for the apartment is at the neighbouring hotel. The location is excellent - a short walk to the Vieux Port. The room is a great size and immaculately clean. The decor is lovely. Great for a couple or a couple with a small child.
