Excellent position on the waterfront in the Vieux Port. Comfortable modern hotel, good sized rooms and very helpful staff. Beds and pillows first-class. Breakfast very satisfactory. Position, staff and beds.
Location of the hotel was fantastic Lack of Tea and Coffee making facilities
The room was very comfortable and clean. We were lucky enough to enjoy the fireworks from the bay-side windows! There were none except that bath robes and slippers that should have been provided were missing. They were delivered upon request. In a room where two of my friedns stayed on the same night, only one set was provided, although they did not complain about it.
To find at the right place exactly what I expected to. Perfect room organisation. Nothing
The location of this hotel is excellent. Just in front of Vieux Port and easy to access the centre of town. There are many things were broken in the room. You can not open the windows, the eletric plug was broken and town rall was damageded. And there is no parking space, so you have to pay parking 21 euro for stay.
Great location and very good facilities. Personnel very helpful, specially at the fron desk. Concierges are probably the exception, they are very polite, but did not help much. I found the hotel very good, except for the charging of minibar items and breakfast. The prices are amazingly expensive, even for a four start hotel, and totally unjustified based on quality. When a hotel charges 10 euros for a small can of peanuts and 6 euros for a coke (price outside 1.60 euros), it is clear they have a clear objective of ripping their clients off.
The place has a good location. My stay was very disappointing. Several details did not meet the expectations one can have considering it is a 4 star hotel. The restaurant of the hotel does not serve dishes after 14h00. Wifi was not working properly and for some reason, my phone could reach no signal inside my bedroom. In addition, the bathroom was dirty. At breakfast, eggs were blue and my cup was dirty. I asked for another one but the one I got was dirty too... Despite Radisson hotels are known for practicity and efficiency, I would definitely not recommend the hotel to businessmen.
Central position, swimming pool, car valet service and parking, courteous staff 22 euros for breakfast was outrageous. The buffet may have been good but I, and many others like me, prefer just a coffee and croissant for breakfast. No allowance was made for my preference in terms of price. Rather than pay 22 euros each day I had to leave the hotel and take breakfast at a cafe three hundred metres away - for 6 euros!!!! Radisson should be ashamed of themselves. Daylight robbery
Very clean and comfortable, pool area nice including food and drink service. Wonderful view in the Vieux Port room, and large opening window very nice. Staff helpful. Breakfast buffet very good. Bus stop right next door and good bus service in Marseille. Just past lively area so not too crowded or noisy but still trivial walk to many restaurants and brasseries. Some traffic noise, but not too bad and not unexpected for city location. Didn't bother my sleep.
Room comfort,Staff,Location,breakfast Small pool, our bed was not very clean
very very very very very very very very very very very very very very nice!!!!!
Very friendly staff, great breakfast, very nice lobby and very well located, not far from the train station and close to the old city.
The room is quite big, there was a kettle, a lot of TV channels Even though the hotel is close to the city center and vieux port, the streets around look rough especially at night (but nothing happend)
Nice reception. Marble floors & nice decor. Rooms were nowhere near this standard. Unsafe dingy location, the worst was dingy rooms not 3* standard. Advised hotel was fully booked when I requested to change to better room.
location Not much tourism information available in hotel
Only location and nothing! Hotel staff is false. Room ia dirty. Fleas is jumping. Curtains in holes. The Internet is very weak. Conditioners don't work in room. The pastel linen changes once a week. A breakfast poor.
Good location. We had lovely views over the Vieux Port Decor a little dated now
Clean, comfortable, nice hotel with good value for money. Even though the location was pretty good the neighberhood was not that nice in the evenings, especially not for woman. Sundays especially everything nearby closed down early, and the only people youl could see in the streets was men.
Good location (close to Old Port, Metro, train station) if you don't have a car and/or come by train. However, if you have a car and/or you don't need/want to stay close to the center of the city you might want to chose another location - if you are there for the beaches, Cassis or La Ciotat would be better locations than Marseilles. Work was getting done in the hotel, possibly to refurbish the rooms - they seriously need that. The noise vas very annoying - started early in the morning so you couldn't sleep late if you wanted to. Also the price was kinda steep for the quality offered, even considering I made the reservation on rather short notice.
Location 3 blocks to Old Town waterfront. Friendly front desk staff. Good breakfast offering. There were notes appologizing that the hotel was under renovation. A property should not let their room carpets reach the level of wear we experienced. Hotel is definately a Taxi trip to and from the train station.
The view from our bedroom over the harbour was incredible, and the quality of the bedding deserves a mention as well.
the service was exceptional -
The bed and the view!
This is an excellent hotel. The parking is tight, get the porter to part it instead.
Excellent bathroom Inability to check in even two hours after the start of check in time
Well serviced very comfortable rooms with very helpful staff A little removed from town centre and rail/metro services
Great hotel, very helpful concierge, easy check-in; check-out, Location of pool area, which appears always to be in the shade;-( Too few porters availble. Balcony design where it is easy for others to gain access to your balcony or even your room.
The view of the Old Port was spectacular, huge tub in bathroom, wonderful beds, big room, brand new bathroom, air conditioning was perfect, staff was professional and friendly, It has the best view of the whole port of any hotel. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our two nights. They even got the room ready by 10 am on our first morning. Petite dejeuner with beautiful view in the restaurant!
very friendly staff, high quality food etc,fantastic location overlooking the old harbour
Very comfortable. Fabulous view of the old harbour.
Excellant location Very poor decor, carpets etc
Very nice hotel in an old building with central location very close to the port and with moderm clean rooms. Affordable price (had a promo of 119 EUR for double with breaskfast). No minibar.
Very good location and helpful staff. Terrible coffee served at breakfast.
hotel location it needs renovation
Great location! Right next to the Harbour, opposite the tourist information, real close to metro and bus stops. Free wifi worked well. Bright and clean, bathroom spotless, showerhats provided. More expensive "superior room" was still ridiculously tiny (just enough space for double bed) and so were bathroom and bathtub. Check-in assistant hadn't read through my booking because asked for payment of breakfast although I booked all inclusive and wanted to give my girlfriend and me (female) a room with twin beds altho I had specifically asked for one big bed. Homophobes. Breakfast lady almost denied access to 4 people who arrived at 10h03 and 10h08 instead of 10 sharp - no sense of service whatsoever! After complaint, I was even told that if the buffet is until 10, you do not arrive at, say, 9h50 but before. I wonder: Why not?? 10 is still early for a holiday breakfast. Buffet was ok but not worth 10euros. Try café "a Cup of Tea"!
Location, fenestration, balconies
Very helpful and welcoming staff. Good location of hotel - right in the old port and beside the metro station.
The location is outstanding, the staff is extremely kind and friendly, and the room was spotless and comfortable. We showed up right when the weather turned bad, and the front desk attendant offered us umbrellas whenever it was raining out. It is a great hotel for a weekend break, as the facilities are great and you can stay without much fuss. Check in and check out is simple, and there are several parking garages, with a hotel discount, located nearby. The room was smaller than we expected, but comfortable.
Ideal Hotel to discover Marseille
Location, price Tired decor, musty, air con not very efficient
The hotel is clean and comfortable and one could not imagine a better location. Also, we were able to check in at 8 a.m., which came in extremely handy. A little fridge in the room would have been welcome.
Yes! Great staff, very helpful and friendly. No
It was great. The location is fantastic, walk distance to everywhere. Trendy, confortable, and nice hotel. I would definitely go again and recomend to any friend. Walking the port was relaxing and romantic. The are is very safe. The only thing I complained was that the swimming-pool was too cold. I was not able to get into the pool at all.
The staff was excellent!! The room was comfortable and nice. Breakfast was not included and it was very unfair....
From the beginning the staff made our stay comfortable and were very informative about the area and different sites to visit and how to do so in an economical way. Very much enjoyed out stay!
Peut etre la deco assez recherchee et encore La proprete de la chance etait (excusez le terme) a chier! Des cheveux dans la baignoire, les wc, le lit et sur les oreiller. Le mobilier est ruine et abime. La moquette pareil. Quand en plus on se fait piquer des fringues, le sentiment reste tres negatif! Je n'y retournerai pas
I particularly liked the fact that we were never interupted and the room was cleaned every day including new linen on the bed and new towles every day. No.
loved the staff at the bar! the head waiter and a barmaid who can speak english (not many of them there) were absolutely amazing! made our stay! there is a receptionist at night. rubbish. cant speak english, doesnt know places, cant advice u anything.
evertyhing. Most amazing hotel for staff, cleanliness, friendly, helpful, attentive etc... did not like the eggs in the morning breakfast
Going to the beach, shopping, going to restaurants and site seeing
The hotel has a fun decoration. The staff is young but not professionnal. Their appearance is neglected, they don't pay attention to client's need, answer barely to questions, and above all the internet connection is 10euro per hour...
The staff was great, the room clean, quiet, & spacious, and the location well within walking distance to many local attractions. There is no van or shuttle service from the airport (the taxi cost 50E).
Nice location, very charming hotel, quiet, somewhat chic...colorful, friendly. Very nice. one small thing of complaint. My airline did not delivery my baggage until 24 hours after my arrival. It was a holiday and the hotel did not have any amenities like razor, toothbrush, toothpaste etc. available. Not even for purchase. That was unfortunate for a 4 star hotel.
New and very luxurious hotel. Rooms are well equipped. The beds however are very hard. The area where the hotel is located is under development, but very convenient when taking a cruise, since it is near the port.
The quality of the hotel E.g room size, the breakfast. Also the tram starting from outside the hotel. Having information/leaflets on how to use tram E.g tickets
helpfullness of staff
the style and colorfulness of the room - bathroom like being on a boat! Lots of natural light in the room, good table to work on in room and email access. Excellent breakfast. Also liked the cabinet of food - very useful for late night quick snack as there were not many shops nearby. Location is convenient to Vieux Port for sightseeing No. I needed somewhere with good facilities while at a conference and had the benefit of the introductory room rate during my stay in Sept 2008.
We had a suite, and it was huge, I think over 25m² althogether, we had a lovely balcony and the bathroom was great with a bath and shower and the separate bathroom and toilet is a great idea. The 40% was a real sweetener. The staff were really friendly and helpful. My partner and I loved the fact that there is free internet and free movies, great for tucking into bed! The hotel was part of a development within the business district that wasnt finished so although we had a lovely balcony, the view wasnt great. The floor in the bathroom wasnt raised enough so that when you have a shower, water got everywhere. Oh and no handtowel rails in the toilet, annoying.
Staff were helpful, the suitebox was useful with free access too films.internet and radio stations, the tram stops outside the hotel and will take you to the action in 10 mins. It would be nice if there was some cutlery and/or plates to use with the microwave and kettle, breakfast rather pricey.............
good place,good facility and good stalf
Primarily selected for location and price - both fulfilled expectations
The shower! Extremely rude young girl on desk when we checked in on Sun night. We considered breakfast 'new age', overpriced and disgusting. Overall would say the hotel had a very strange atmosphere. We were sorry we had not booked to stay next door at the Ibis for all 3 nights we were away, as the staff, breakfast and atmosphere could not be faulted, we had paid around 60% less per night for this hotel...
Great fun,jolly, kitsch, cheery design; had a free shoulder massage on arrival (once a week, lucky timing!) Room stunk of cigarette smoke from chain-smoker next door; all night long.Yuck.
Good location near the beach Very untidy round the pool area, no real outside bar service, not enough sun lounges, poor local knowledge by staff, room with a sea view is fine if you stand on the balcony and crook your neck. For the price would not stay there again.
The bed and the quietness. The bath tub design. The water would be all on the floor near the wash basin after taking a shower. Also, I could get a better rate online then being at the front desk.
I MISS THE HOTEL NOW!VERY NICE! NOTHING
nice and luxury hotel on a perfect location
Location was wonderful, far from the busy streets of Marseille. Lots of places to eat, beach right across the hotel, pharmacy, bakery all within walking distance. No shower curtain for the bathtub/shower.
All. No, everthing is perfectly organized
The rooms are so nice and tidy and spacious it gives you the feeling of staying in. The French people are the most unhelpful people god has yet to create! The staff in the hotel were helpful but to a certain extent! They are French after all. Also it is very easy to travel from the hotel to Marseille centre (by bus 44 and by metro) yet when I tried to search for this information I couldn't find it so more info on this would be useful to others.
All of it:the service, the staff, the conditions. No.
i liked the location of the hotel the spa no fridge inthe rooms that was the big issue
The hotel was really amazing. The staff are very friendly and the price is amazing. However the Breakfast was really not worthy to 21 Euro I wish if they can provide more at breakfast and to provide people different vareity at launch since we are not meet eaters and we eat Halal only. Like if the provide vegiterian or Chicken things
Good size room and jacuzzi/pool facilities Room incorrect on arrival said we had booked superior cit view not deluxe sea view (which we had) it took three room changes to get it right (or better really). Dont know if confusion was something that went wrong with the booking.com process or if they were trying to throw us in anywhere as travelling with a baby (which has happened to us a couple of times)
nice buffet breakfast included in package all day parking was great @ 15 euros very friendly/welcoming front desk free wifi the room smelled of smoke, however, opening the window freshened things up beer options were limited & higher than expected @ 10euros a glass.
sea view from room, also breakfast room and bar very good we asked for two twin beds but got a double bed
The food was beautiful and the staff were pleasent and welcoming - it was a very relaxing & comfotable stay. Nothing that I can think of - the prices for a drink in the hotel bar were a little steep but that is about it.
The views, the friendliness of the staff and the breakfast. We were disappointed with two of the meals we had at room service but when we complained it was dealt with without a problem. Please see above. The room was a little tired in places e.g. the carpet was worn and stained. Would have like to have seen china cups and saucers in the rooms instead of plastic cups!
Sitting in the bar outside. Pierre at the reception was first class, very helpful. not really
Fantastic sea view, comfortable rooms and facilities, quiet atmosphiere, proffecional staff wardrobe is a littlebit small for 2 people
Pleasant and relaxing
The location right on the beach in a suburb of Marseille is excellent. The view from the room and the public areas is amazing. There is even a spring coming from the sea rocks inside the hotel.The design of the hotel is very special , very modern, and include a beautifull library. A nice breakfest was included in the rate, which became unusal in france now. The hotel charged the full amount of our stay when the room was booked (several months ago) although it was a flexible rate and not a nonrefundable rate. It took a lot of effort to get it back with the help of booking.com
Good facilities, very nice room with a balcony facing the sea and the evening sun. Poor choice of English channels on the TV. The lunches and evening dinners were very expensive. It made you want to go out
Generally a good hotel all round. 10 minute cab ride into Vielle Port though. No
Very nice area The price was a bit too high for this kind of room. Necessarry for some renovation.
Really nice large bathroom and tub. Great blackout shades that made the room tomb-like in the morning, which was great and allowed us to sleep in. The restaurant in the hotel was quite nice and served until 10:30 which was perfect as we checked in late. Lots of construction going on in the city, google directions were off because of the detours- either way, finding the very small sign at night was quite a challenge. Construction also going on on the hotel grounds as well as on the side streets, good to know ahead of time. Rent a small car, these streets are very narrow.
d difficult to find
It was absolutely stunning. Great pool, wonderful breakfasts and just a retreat and respite from the heat of the city. Bit tricky to find at first. A slightly better map would be good.
Nice and clean hotel. Nice pool area. Stayed in the new part of the hotel. Really comfortable room A little far from city centre. You need transportation
Breakfast was great, good variety and open throughout the morning. Location too far from any tourist locations.
swimming pool, buffet breakfast location, too far out of town; room not very nice, modern or clean
It was quiet and actually quite central. Based on what other people said, I thought it was going to be further out. I don't think I would have wanted to be any more central for my mood as the port area is much noisy and can be dangerous at night. Not really. Our rooms looked very 'international' so you could be just about anywhere. For people who want more charm might need to book their suites which seem more Provencal or stay in another hotel.
Not much Small, very old rooms
Nice garden, ordinary breakfast, small room and small elevator.. Good location! Good service!
Efficient, friendly staff Quiet room Fabulous food (room service and breakfast) Bar and breakfast room views Everything we needed including WiFi Had to leave
Desk staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Room was small but very beautiful. Highly recommend this location.
Good hotel. Very clean. Just in the center of Marseille city. Beautiful view of the Vieux Port.
The location, just next to the Vieux Port, is really amazing. The room was extremely small for the price we paid, without any kind of view (does "courtyard view" means facing a wall and no light at all????) and not very comfortable. Moreover, the staff was quite unfriendly.
The concierge was very helpful in helping us find a good 'bouillabaisse' restaurant and making the reservation. Nice and pro
Location, excellent room, nice bar area
They upgraded us from a city to a harbour view room - really impressive vista and absolutely worthy the extra rate if you are booking. The hotel has retained its original character and we were surprised on the up-side. All was fine
Location. Great room with view overlooking harbour but with really effective soundproofing. Large, firm bed. Nothing.
The location was great. Easy access to everywhere and the staff were very helpful.
The location was fantastic. Easy to walk around the port and surrounding area. Lot of choice of restaurants nearby Cost of wi-fi access. In 2008 this really should be free in a good hotel.
The magnificant view of the harbour The breakfast was served in a rather dark room
Friendly staff, good buffet breakfast,great view over the old port. Location was great - in the middle of everything,many restaurants & wine bars right outside the front door.convenient starting point for many of the sight-seeing activities. Room a bit small, but comfortable
Central location overlooking the old harbour. A good standard 2 star. Lack of advice on where to park at time of booking. There were garage parking facilities nearby which had we known, would have made parking easier
Excellent location!! very kind and helpfull staff, very clean and confortable room!
It was close to the metro. the elevator starts on the 1st floor so it is difficult to retrieve your baggages. The rooms are carpeted and people are allowed to smoke in them, so they have a musky smell. we also had no sunlight in the room although this meant that we had little noise as well.
The WiFi is advertised, but the speeds make it pretty unusable - could barely check email.
Port view Elevator less
hotel stuff are really nice and helpful. good location its not very confortable, the bed
Excellent location, good night of sleep because of the quality of the beds. Good shower Nothing
The hotel was very central but quiet. It was very close to transport links, shops and the old port.It was an excellent base for a holiday. Yhere was no A/C in the room.B/fast very expensive.
we had a very nice, larger room. The desk staff spoke excellent english and upgraded our room and gave us some very fine sightseeing tips.
we got a nice big room with port view, the hotel has a great location! no parking in the hotel
Yes very good position and comfort
the excellent location and comfortable and relaxed atmosphere
The room was very large and had a lovely balcony that looked over the dock for all the yachts.the bathroom was clean and large and had a nice hot shower. First impression from the street were not encouraging as it looked very dirty and there was a lot of rubbish in the street but it is a lovely hotel once inside.
The hotel is an excellent location on the Old Port right next to a Metro Station. The superior room was spacious and beautifully decorated. The view from the room was magnificent, morning, sunset and evening! The included breakfast offered quite a variety for the traveller. I'd highly recommend this hotel. Some hotel staff were extremely accommodating, especially when we were trying to travel during the strike in France. The night staff person was not very helpful so we did not know our train the next day was cancelled until the morning staff checked for us.
The croissonts. Room cleaning was not done on `one day and we had to remind staff late in the afternoon.
The hotel is fantastic.
Great pool, Spa, located close to the Harbour and clean and up to date.
the staff were friendly and the view from the dining patio was excellent
enjoyed the pool and breakfast and the room was very stylish and comfortable it was actually very good all around
Location. The views from the restaurant terrace and bar were amazing and the quality of the buffet breakfast was excellent. Rooms very clean but there was a slight smell of drains in the corridor and bathroom.
Food was excellent, view of the harbour from restaurant was interesting.
Location and breakfast, roomstandard. The service was allright Bad ventilation, could be bad air-conditioning? I like it best when breakfast is included in the price.
they have a parking and location is great to walk around you would expect much more from the room when you see entrance to the hotel. at the end you have feeling like they make everything fancy, but the room is so 3 star hotel.
I enjoyed the location, with some wonderful scenery. The staffs are very hard working and serves people with a smile and greeting always. Loved everything, except it would have been nice to have a room with a bit of light during the day..
