Excellent Location

Reviewed 27 october, 2021

Location and Access – The hotel is only a few steps away from the main SNCF Marseille St Charles station with fast connections to the whole of France. For example, direct services to Lille, Paris, Bordeaux and Nice. It’s also next to the Metro making for easy access all-round the city. Walking (downhill) to the Vieux Port takes around 15 minutes. Adjacent to the hotel is a Carrefour Express supermarket. There are cafes and bars in the area but these tend to be of the snack/fast food variety and for better and more upmarket choices it is necessary to look further afield Google Earth – The hotel can be seen on Street View Reception – staff were professional and welcoming, spoke good English and completed the check in/out formalities quickly. As an IHG loyalty card holder they ensured I received a voucher for a complimentary drink at the bar Public Areas/Decor – All very well maintained. In reception seating areas and bar also an outside area with lounge seating Guest Rooms – All of the same Holiday Inn standard and reasonably spacious Decor/Maintenance/Cleanliness – There were some minor issues with scuffed décor. Everything seemed to be immaculately clean Amenities including Entertainment – Telephone, Flat screen TV with French and international Channels, good Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making and sockets capable of charging personal devices Lighting – Natural light was excellent in my west facing room. Artificial lighting was dim Heating/Air Conditioning – Having a high west facing view had the advantage of spectacular views of Marseille. However, it also meant that direct sunlight heated the room to a very high temperature. Even with windows open the heat was oppressive. The A/C did not work as it was management policy to only heat rooms at this time of year (mid October) Noise – no noise disturbance whatsoever Food & Beverage – There is a small bar and breakfast room but no restaurant as such although meals can be ordered. I found the continental style petit dejeuner to be more than adequate. But as an example of the hotel’s attitude, I was surprised to see signs saying that guests would be charged for any food uneaten. Free ice machine was a bonus Value for Money – Average for a Holiday Inn Express X Factor – For anyone arriving in Marseille by rail the location cannot be beaten

OK for a short stay

Reviewed 5 june, 2021

We stayed in Holiday In Marseille for one night because we had a flight from Marseille airport the day after. The hotel is in the city center, not close to the airport, but we chose to stay there because during locdown period it was possible to find more options to eat etc. It was full lockdown in France, so all the restaurants were closed and curfew started at 19.00. The check-in was smooth and the receptionist was very kind and professional. We were given breakfast cards to fill out, so we could collect our breakfast trays the next morning to eat in the bedroom. There is parking available in the underground parking, costing 16 euros per day. Our room was on the 8th floor. It was a family room with one double bed and one double sofa bed. The room was spacious enough for a short stay. The bathroom was clean and functional. There were several places to eat not far from the hotel that were obviously closed because of the lockdown, but we ordered food through UberEats. There is also a small supermarket just next door to the hotel. The Old Port of Marseille (center) is about 15 -20 minutes walk away. I would recommend this hotel for a short stay in Marseille. Special compliments to very nice hotel staff.

Convenient location, big room, no air conditioning

Reviewed 14 february, 2020

Very conveniently located near the train station and close to grocery stores, restaurants, and many other conveniences. Room was very clean and spacious. The air conditioning did not work in my room. The front desk staff told me that air conditioning does not work in the winter, but it was very hot and stuffy in the room, making it hard to sleep. The deodorizers used by the housekeeping staff is extremely powerful in the hallways and inside the rooms. They need to stop spraying the toxic fragrances, especially in the rooms as it was hard to breathe in the room.

Clean, Comfortable, Convenient

Reviewed 5 february, 2020

I stayed here for three nights. I had used Marseille as my base to explore nearby towns, so having a hotel across from the train station was ideal. Although the area surrounding the train station is a bit dodgy, I found the hotel itself to be very comfortable, super clean and surprisingly upscale for a Holiday Inn. My room was quite sizable. My only complaint was that the shower lip was not high enough, coupled with a flimsy plastic shower curtain, the entire bathroom would flood after taking a shower. The included buffet breakfast was very nice with lots of healthy options (fresh fruits, dried fruit, yogurt, Muesli, multigrain breads), assorted cheeses, breakfast meats, cakes, crepes, etc. The coffee was very good considering it came from a DIY machine. Staff from front desk to dining to housekeeping were professional and most accommodating. Very reasonable rates make this a solid choice when in Marseille.

Good location, if coming into Marseille by train, but if you go out in the evening, keep your eyes peeled, as there are some very unsavory persons by the railway station! Room, service, breakfast all good.
