    Great location with stunning views of the Old Port. Hotel has undergone major renovations in 2009. Modern design décor throughout. Complimentary upgrade to a deluxe room with a view & king bed was very much appreciated.

    Continental breakfast very basic and greatly overpriced at 25 euros. WiFi and local newspaper should be free of charge at a 5 star hotel.

    Great hotel, very helpful concierge, easy check-in; check-out,

    Location of pool area, which appears always to be in the shade;-( Too few porters availble. Balcony design where it is easy for others to gain access to your balcony or even your room.

    I like very nice staff spoken beautiful english . Helpful ( I called to order a taxi before check out and lady proposed me ( by her self ) to prepare an invoice for me in advance - top class ! Check out was very fast for me then ) I love the hotel design(scenery rather!) - nobby,elegant meanwhile with a good taste -particular .mixture of splendour with simlicity /minimalizm - Decorator must be a scene-painter:)with great fantasy. The same with the spa -it is a piece of art -mastership in designing! a bit too light for me however/!24/24-I love it -excercises for good sleep at night. during a day you can order a massage . Hairdresser is on the ! st floor as I remember -great idea . I like tea and coffee facilities in the room.!! Bed and bedding was nice and comfortable. Internet was a cable net not wifi - if there is a wifi I had no pleasure to use it. The patiseria and hmm kind of shop-not nice- is on the other site of the street as well as shop with fruits and vegetables which are very good here.

    Bit acustic rooms you can hear neighbours from above and those who are camming back in the evening ( from the coridor) Aircon in my room was not the most powerfull.And view from my room was not impresive but it s like that-it was not a room with harbour view indeed.

    Really nice rooms and public areas. Very friendly and efficient staff. Great views, nice park next door (for our dog).

    Not enough sunbeds by the pool, especially as pool shared with Novotel; also sun lost by 6pm behind the hotel. Quite a long walk to shops/restaurants of old town

    Guest rating

    Hotel is clean and modern

    The hotel appears set up to charge for everything possible as extra. For instance, wi-fi is free but it is very slow so they offer you normal speed wi-fi for 20 euros! This is really cheesy! If you borrow a power adaptor, they will tell you that they will take a deposit for it on your credit card! What kind of guests do they have that steal power adaptors but pay 300 euros a night?? They need to work on those aspects a lot. People hate to be nickel and dimed at every instance and the Sofitel Marseille does just that unfortunately. A real turn off.

    Benjamin the sommellier was great. Really new his stuff and made a good meal great. The view from the luxury suite was amazing.

    The staff at the downstairs cafe were rude,unhelpful and unappologetic. Bad enough theater would never go back.

    Very good

    The room was very comfortable and well-appointed although the view was onto the garage area. The hotel had most attractive lounge, restaurant, bar(live music on Saturday evening), pool areas ; however the cost of the meal both breakfast and evening dining was prohibitive. We did enjoy drinks in the bar area but drinks too were "over the top". The drinks on the pool terrace were reasonable ( the Sofitel shares the pool area with the Novotel hotel) I may consider staying at the hotel again for its comfort. The staff were very busy at reception and did not have time for recommendations, booking trips etc. We also arrived at 11am after a long trip but there was no room available until 3pm even though the hotel blurbs stated check-in at 2pm.

    Cost of meals long walk to Vieus Port area

    Very good

    The view to the old port. Very Quite. The Concierge (Valet Parking) were very friendly and helpful. The Chocolate that was left in the room by the staff every evening. The Location is ideal, it gives both options: a walk towards the city, or the walk towards the Cornish

    Restaurants and Bar close very early. Novotel (4 stars) is sharing the same facilities of the Sofitel (two hotels in one)... We could have stayed practically at the same location but for cheaper. The price difference between two identical rooms but one with view to the port and pool (I.E. 521) an done with standard view / backyard (I.E. 544) is not reasonable (almost 50% more expensive)
