Well-appointed apartment - 1 double bed and two bunks plus a kitchen complete with double hob, microwave and fridge. Balcony an added bonus - ideal for breakfast as the sun adds colour to the surrounding buildings. Outside there are two supermarkets, a brasserie and a bakery within a five-minute walk. The hotel is less than 50 metres away from the busy street market heading up to the tram terminus and Castellane metro station. There are enough stalls here to attract even the mess wary shopper - fresh produce, clothing, jewellery, etc. And the metro station itself is only two stops away from the Vieux Port (worth a full day's exploration in itself) or St Charles main railway station.
Some comments express dismay at the rather basic quality of the facilities and the expectation that one is meant to keep the kitchen clean and tidy. Personally I found it excellent value for money and would happily recommend it to anyone else looking for a comfortable base providing all home comforts at a fraction of other city centre hotels.

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.
