I had a great experience at this hotel. It is in a perfect location, and the staff is very accommodating and willing to give directions or suggestions. I had a great experience here and definitely recommend it
The Sofitel doesn't dissapoint in a luxury hotel. The view of the Port is spectacular and within easy walking distance. Equally, the beach is just a few blocks the other direction. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I've ever seen, and with the view of the port its simply a wonderful experiance. The hotel staff was great for the pool side service; something that could be easily remedied with a little coach. All-in-all, a superb experiance
I splurged for a room with a large terrace overlooking the old port. Top floor. The terrace had no roof. In the middle of the night I would lie in one of the two lounge chairs and gaze up at the moon over the lights of the harbor. Excellent location for a tourist. Small lobby, but who cares. People behind the desk spoke perfect english and were very helpful. I went to a different, higher rated hotel for breakfest to get more variety.
"Hotel in Marseille close to the most attractions"
The hotel is at a reasonable distance to the old port and the corniche.
The rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet.
Restaurant offers are superb.
I can't say anything about the pool since December is not the time to try it..
We arrived in Marseille on an overnight ferry from Corsica, and expected to leave our bags and explore until our room was ready. But Benjamin (like the rest of the staff, very helpful)... himself from Corsica... welcomed us with the news that our room was available. Good fortune of course, but typical of our stay, everything beyond our expectations.
This included the wonderful breakfast buffet (which we twice at sitting in the sun on the breakfast room balcony)... our room (with its own balcony, also in the sun, facing across the harbour)... and the restaurant where we had a very good dinner on our last night.
