"For what we wanted to do, this was an excellent hotel."
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights as it was close to Mazargues where we were involved in family research. If you wanted to use this hotel to visit the tourist sites of Marseille, you will find it less convenient, although public transport is so good that it really is no problem to commute into town (approx 25 mins to downtown, bus 23 or 45 to Rond Point du Prado, then metro. The nearest local beaches are a 25 minute walk or short bus ride, the bus stops and big supermarket are close by. Staff were friendly and helpful, the apartment excellent with a nice sunny patio and very quiet. The only negatives were the hard bed and the advertised Restaurant which was permanently closed! First time entry to the Residence is via a key panel if the door is locked- press "Appeler" to contact reception, once you have a key, everything is easier. Would not recommend using a car in the city unless you like permanent gridlock. Overall this was an excellent hotel/apartment which we would be happy to use again.

The hotel was lovely - very clean with excellent staff who were happy to help and provide advice on the local area. The hotel is close to the beach - just a short walk - but we needed to get a bus and the metro if we wanted to go to the port or city centre - the bus left from close to the hotel. We liked being away from the city centre but close enough to reach it if we could drag ourselves away from the pool and spa for a day! The cocktails in the bar were outstanding - we treated ourselves to a different one each evening.

I stayed here as it had been recommended by the company I was visiting. It was clean and tidy although a little tired. On the whole the staff were lovely but one of the waiters wasn't neither helpful or polite and actually walked off half way through taking a food order to serve another table and never returned!
