Location is always my first driver in hotels. Couldn't ask for a better one in Marseille--just steps away from the Vieux Port. So close that we could take a walk through the fish market before breakfast. The room was simple but nice. Good bathroom with a tub. Room was quiet. Breakfast was more than just standard continental. But it was the enthusiastic and helpful staff that stands out most in my mind. They helped us find bus routes, recommended restaurants, and seemed genuinely interested in helping us make the most of our visit.
