We (4 of us) arrived earlier than expected after 30 hours of travelling from Australia but were so happily organized into an upgraded room by the young man who was on front desk. He told us our Comfort rooms were not yet ready as the hotel had been heavily booked the previous night, but that for an extra few Euro we could move straight into Superior rooms which we did. The rooms were immaculate, cleanest we have stayed in, and very comfortable. The staff were more than helpful, especially the young man (who was going on holidays that afternoon). The hotel is conveniently located near good restaurants. Highly recommended
We had an excellent stay and couldn't really fault it. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and comfortable, excellent bed and it was very quiet for a hotel. Good breakfast buffet. Highly recommended.

The new Marseille Hotel Best Western La Joliette is located in a strategic position in close proximity to the Old Port …More
Very nice modern clean hotel and for the money, absolutley perfect. Rooms were very clean and comfortable Breakfast was 90% continental with a couple of warm dishes too. All very nice with pleanty of choice and the Staff couldn't have been more helpful. A good 20 mins + walk from the old port but the tram No 2 stops right outside the hotel every 10 mins and takes you more than 3/4 of the way to the port. Buy a 3 day transport pass for around 21 Euro. This allows you to go by train, tram, metro or bus. Local busses from the old port will take you along the fab costal route to the beaches, Notre Dame, and to many other attractions. Most restaurants by the old port have a 15 Euro set 3 course menu. Irish Bar at the port is very popular. Take a 2 hour boat trip to see the Calanques, such a fantastic trip with stunning views. Commentry is French but they hand out an English written guide on request. Chateaux D'if is a little dissapointing, lots of bare stone rooms but still worth seing. If you have never been to Marseille I would recommend you do. There is so much to see and do that you will struggle to fit it all in. I will visit and stay hear again.

The Ibis Marseille Euromediterranee hotel is well located in the heart of the business district facing Marseille Harbour …More
The staff spoke English and were very kind and accommodating. The room we had was nice (very beachy), well maintained and clean. The hotel was just a little off of a main street that goes right to downtown Marseille (vieux-port). While it wasn't my favorite hotel of our trip, for the price (especially during vacation time in France), it was perfect.

Situated in Marseille, the affordable Hotel Des Gens de Mer is perfectly located for visiting the main tourist attractions …More
The room was exactly as described on their website and very roomy. The tea service was nice for early mornings and the bottled water was refreshed every day although I found the tap water fine for drinking. The tram is just out the front door and very handy for getting around. I went to the Metro station a couple of stops down the line and purchased a 72 hour pass which got me all over Marseille. The hotel was quite conveniently located for exploring around the old town. Staff was very courteous and quite helpful with directions. I will stay here again when in Marseille next spring.
