We stayed for a week, and we were very pleasantly surprised by the friendly and helpful staff, stylish interior design and overall excellent service.
The only downsides were that a lot of the sun beds by the pool were broken, and the breakfast was slightly over-priced, however there are plenty of cafes and patisseries nearby to have a coffee and croissant in instead.
The room was very comfortable and very reasonably sized with a clean and modern bathroom.
Would definitely stay again and recommend to a friend.

Modern city-centre hotel, open from April 2006, situated opposite the Pharo Conference centre, 500 metres from the harbour …More
Location is great, right on the port and many dining options. Reception area was small and very busy. Though the room and bathrooms were very spacious by European standards.
The room, hall, and bathroom were not cleaned well unfortunately. Some rubbish were left on the carpet as we made our way to our room, leaving a bit of negative first impression.
The beds were clean, you can tell one was sagged and slanted to one side.
Expected some rough edges in the closet and in the corners. Overall I'd stay there again for the convenience, but only for a short time.
From the very friendly welcome to the view from our balcony this was an excellent location. Eventhough we arrived before normal check-in we were given our very comfortable room with a lovely ensuite bathroom. Room had fridge, tea/coffee facilities and bathroom well stocked with shampoo etc. Wifi is free and available in bedroom.
Our room had a balcony with table and chairs so we had a fantastic view of the Vieux Port. Great for people watching and views of the Notre Dame.
The hotel is a very short walk from the metro station which is only 2 stops from the main Marseille St Charles TGV station.
Surrounded by many very good bars and restaurants - too much choice not enough days!
Also 2 minutes walk from Open bus tour and mini tourist train also many boat trips.
There is a market opposite the hotel selling local items.
Cannot recommend more highly!
We can't wait to return!

Wonderfully close to the old port. Very clean and quiet. Room and bathroom was large. Bed was new and comfortable. Great launching point for spending a few days exploring the city. Right next door is a great boulangerie that is very affordable with a great selection and fabulous coffee. I would stay there again.
We stayed on this hotel for 5 days . The guy who sat at the reception desk on the day we arrived was not so pleasing that he didn't even showed us the map of the hotel and the direction of the entire city. Many hotels in the past usually includes this part after we checked in.
Dinner selections were too limited but we couldn't find any wrong with their wide selection of breakfast Buffett . Over all we were satisfied of our stay .
Within walking distance from petit nice, in the heart of old port. Loved my time in Marseille, I wish I could've stayed longer to see the different tourist sites within old port. Staff was friendly, cannot complain about the room.
