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 2 nights at this hotel and were looking for something suitable for a couple with a small child 2 years old. Generally we were satisfied with the room and the staff, who were helpful and friendly. The room was clean and a good size, well equipped with a kitchenette. The negative points were no maid service until after four days, no bath but only a shower, no parking was available except on the street, several of the bathroom fixtures were loose and poor quality. The price was reasonable and in our budget, so I would stay there again as a family but not as a business visitor.
The staff are friendly and the room was clean. The parking was private and only 6 Euro per night. Although not much is around the hotel, since we were driving it was not a problem. The Predo beach was only a few minutes driving, and it was huge. Access to the highway was very easy too.
Stay at the Hotel Kyriad, right next to the Palais des Congres conference center and just 30 minutes from the airport.Rooms …More
Citidines Prado has wonderful, friendly helpful staff. The property is situated close to a major bus route and the Perier underground Metro station. We used inexpensive 24 h or 72 h transport tickets. The number 83 bus ride along the coastal route past beaches to the old port was relaxing and pretty. Within the limitations of the property and its age, Citidines is excellent in providing the travellers needs for rest, security, and ability to obtain food and tourist information. The airconditioning, hot water, internet, lifts, fridge, TV, dishwasher were all reliable. A laundry was available. We had a sunny balcony, separate toilet and a split sofa bed so it can open only one side if only one side is needed. The separate bedroom is not much larger than the bed, but that is fine for slim people.
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.
