It was like staying in a royal palace. The location, views, rooms and staff were incredible. Breakfast was included in the price and although expensive, it was worth it as a treat.
The staff were really helpful and gave us suggestions of places to eat and ordered taxi's for us.
Situated about 10-15 mins walk from the Old Port this is a modern hotel that is away from the noise of the centre of Marseille but within easy reach. The views overlooking the port from the hotel are amazing. Several excellent restaurants within walking distance in the Catalan beach area. The room was comfortable and well equipped.
We walked to the hotel from the train station and the hotel was quite easy to locate. The desk staff were very helpful but when we arrived and when we checked out they stored our luggage and arranged transportation for us to our ship. Very nice hotel run in the traditional manner. Didn't feel like a chain hotel at all.
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.
