Excellent location... next to the port, many restaurants and the hop on - hop off sightseeing bus. Definitely worth staying at this hotel.

Don't miss out on this little gem!

Lovely, friendly,quiet hotel. Great location with side window views of the Old Port. Many amenities within walking distance. Worthwhile having breakfast there... it's not often you find a two star hotel that provides Villeroy & Bosch crockery! Quite a find.

Only hotel with terrace overlooking Le Vieux Port

Posted 04-Aug-2015
Pros: Situation, cleanliness, receptionist
Cons: needs a bar,
Location: Loads of restaurants adjacent, bars, harbour trips etc
I booked the hotel as the only one in the area with a rooftop terrace, which, indeed, it had. The view from there was spectacular, but it was a little too breezy to eat breakfast up there. There had once been a bar up there, but not now, just some tables and chairs. The hotel didn't mind us buying a G and T from the bar next door and taking them " up on the roof" for a romantic tincture. Still, the hotel was ideally situated, just metres from Le Vieux Port, and with plenty of places to eat and drink adjacent. The room was, as they say, petite and bijou, but spotlessly clean, with a view from the window of the harbour; double glazed and air con, with a comfy bed, we had a good night's sleep. A special word for the lovely receptionist; she was utterly charming and helpful, so full marks for her. We would stay again.....wish they had a bar though!

The staff was friendly and very informative. We would definitely stay at the Hermes when we return to Marseille.

Great location for the old port

Posted 22-Jul-2015
Pros: Location, staff, cleanliness Great views of the port from the terrace
Location: You can catch the mini-train, hop-on / hop-off bus or ferry within a couple of minutes walk. Dozens of restaurants to eat / drink in
Ideal hotel for exploring the old port and surrounding area. Hotel is clean and modern albeit our room was on the small side, having said that it was good value for money. Staff were very friendly and all spoke good English. Roof top terrace is idea for Breakfast as well as a quiet drink in the evening. Would definitely go back again.

Small friendly hotel overlooking Old Port

Posted 28-May-2015
Pros: We loved the hotel, especially its location and the small but very clean rooms and friendly staff. Also the breakfast was very good.
Cons: Big containers of chemicals and linen in bags waiting to be laundered were left in the corridors
Location: Very near the Old Port in Marseille. We explored Marseille and took boat, bus and train trips to other places nearby
We spent 8 days in Marseille travelling by Eurostar. We went out every day to different places and found a lot to do. We loved our stay and the weather was Fab.

Nice hotel just off old port

Posted 12-May-2015
Pros: Location, staff
Cons: Shower
Location: Old port, Fort Saint-Jean, Elise St-Laurent
Hotel Hermes is a good hotel steps away from the busy thoroughfare of the Old Port, close to the metro and buses (60 and 83) that will take you to the major sites. The rooms are bright and clean, and the air conditioning magical after spending the day seeing the sights under the hot, baking sun. The only downside is the tiny shower cubicles in a fair sized bathroom - being of shortish stature, it somehow still endeavoured to make me feel all elbows and awkward, banging against scorching taps and walls. There are rooms with baths, so I am assuming those would be the choice of people as ungraceful as or taller than me! The front desk staff speak some English and are really helpful, pointing out the best ways to get to places and the areas of interest.
