    Fabulous Convenient Hotel!!!!

    We spent one night at this hotel at the end of our three week holiday in France. We arrived in Marseille by train and were heading to the airport next morning. The Train and Bus stations are right across the street!!! Couldn't be more convenient. Everyone we dealt with spoke English, were friendly and more than helpful. The breakfast which was included had everything you could possibly want in a comfortable atmosphere. The beds were comfortable and air conditioning was appreciated. Would highly recommend!!

  • 6.0.Good

    The indoor parking was convenient and secure. Best feature of the hotel. We arrived early and appreciated the early check-in. The staff did their best to accommodate us. The downside to the hotel is it’s location. For some, it may be great because the train station is across the street. However, the area is run down. We felt unsafe walking at night.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Being right across the road from the Marseille Saint Charles train station was perfect for an early morning train trip. Unfortunately I had to leave too early to enjoy the breakfast which is included. Room is well laid out, had kettle, tea and coffee which was great. Only complaint, water pressure from the shower was weak!

    Staying a night in order to catch the train early morning. Very convenient location just across from station. However, no clear / easy way to stop my rental car to drop off and checkin in the beginning.

    Weekend stay in Marseilles

    We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express recently while visiting Marseilles for the weekend. The hotel is located directly across the street from the train station and also where the shuttle bus from the airport dropped us off. So it was very conveniently located. The front desk staff were very friendly & helped us relocat to a new room when we were not happy with the location of our first room. Our room also included a free breakfast which turned out to be quite good. The wifi signal was strong and the room contained a safe, a microwave & a mini fridge. The only complaint I had with our room was with our air conditioner. It simply could not keep up with the outside heat & humidity. As a result our room was very warm and close.
