    It was very comfortable. I wasn't very impressed by marseille itself, the hotel felt like an oasis compared to the streets of marseille.

    Outstanding staff service. Impeccable facilities.

    In their business centers they only have Macs! - Not a big deal but somewhat strange.

    I can't decide what I liked best. My stay was amazing!!! I have stayed at Sofitels in the us but this one is my favorite. The staff was outstanding, the food amazing and incredible view. I loved the decor of the hotel and the design of the space. The bathroom was well designed and appointed. I loved the Hermes toiletries and the hydromassage shower was very, very nice. I especially enjoyed the evening turndown service. It is a nice touch.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Lack of space at shared pool facilities and area for sitting in sun.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Powerful part of renewal effort for the city.

    Staff, food service, room, noise, were all lacking.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Nicely situated hotel and the room (131) with a balcony and big bath tub was very pleasant. The fact that there was a Sauna and a swimming pool was a factor to choose the hotel, although we never had a chnace to use either because of the short opening hours of the sauna on a Sunday - a real shame.

    The service: the waiters were very rushed and did not listen very well, we had that both in the restaurant as well as with the room service. The Easter Sunday breakfast was horrible, the waiters and reception staff were rushed, the buffet was not re-filled after 10:30am and the whole room was noisy and hectic. Although we got some advice from the Concierge, it was not very original and we could have figured out the information easily ourselves. We got our room by paying an upgrade. The staff at reception did not let us use our American Express Platinum card which would have included the upgrade. In conclusion: Still some work to do to become a luxury hotel that compares with other luxury hotels internationally.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The view of my room is fantastic. The concierge in this hotel is the best. My overall experience during my stay is excellent.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Distance to everywhere and good value for the weekend break.

  • Couple
    8.8

    The room is 5 star, view (if facing the water) is 5 star, but the staff working in the bar and breakfast restaurant are 3 stars.
