Bad news Good news
When we arrived at the hotel it was to be the first of 4 nights. Unfortunately there was a problem with the room, so they put us in a hotel across from them for one night only. The next day we were able to get into our room and after having spent a night elsewhere, we were very happy with our room. The management and front desk people were excellent. The room was bigger and very comfortable. Front desk gave us a gift for our trouble. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in the heart of Marseille, in a reasonably priced, clean hotel.

A very pleasant surprise!
Hotel is located right in the Old Port, next to all sites, restaurants and activities. Staff were extremely helpful, the reception person on our initial check in actually made our stay, giving us walking directions, restaurant suggestions and bus routes, costs. The rooms were reasonably sized and one of the comfiest beds we had on our France trip overall. A little noisy, but we have to admit we were there for Bastille Day and when France won the World Cup, which increased the noise, excitement and general awesome time we had in Marseille and at Escale Oceana. We would stay there again for sure.

Very helpful staff. Clean property. Great location. Need to find parking garage nearby as parking at the hotel impossible.

Only if you're nimble and quick footed!
This hotel is beautifully located at the top of the bay. The road in front was under construction and closed to traffic when we stayed there, so I can't judge how much road noise there might be under normal conditions. The room was a bit small; little walking space on either side of the bed. Separate toilet room from shower/tub+sink room. Clean. Towels were thin and rough. Warning: The room had a tub/shower combination. The tub in our room is difficult to enter/exit, and there are no safety bars installed. The side of the tub is tall (higher than my knee, and I'm 5'10") so it's a big step up over the side of the tub. The floor of the tub is not supported, so the tub floor flexes when you stand on it. It's very precarious to step into the tub and lift your trailing leg high enough to get into the shower. The tub surround is glass, and the partial door to the tub/shower prevented me from holding onto the sink's counter top for support. There isn't enough room to sit on the edge of the tub and swing your feet in; you have to step in/step out. Stepping out of the tub means lifting your foot up high over the side of the tub, while the slick wet tub floor is flexing and buckling under your foot, and then stepping down onto the tile floor. Yes, I'm of a certain age and not as limber as I apparently needed to be for this hotel! Personally, I would not stay here again because of the tub/shower situation.

Poor 2.0
Horrible experience. Keep away.
Don't stay at this hotel. The condition is horrible, the location is very scary and dangerous at night and day time because of homeless people lying around the hotel. The rooms stink, the beds are dirty. A horrible experience all together!

Great location and very friendly staff. Room was quiet, clean and although we had an attic room, it was large and comfortable. Breakfast was a very reasonable 8€, although the coffee machine was making hot chocolate instead of coffee. We went downstairs and right outside the hotel there was a coffee shop that made great cafe au lait. Could not have picked a better location for restaurants and shops.
