Visit enchanting Provence to appreciate the beauty of the South of France and to explore the rich culture and history of the region.
The layout for breakfast was with long tables. No real individuality. Asked for an extra pillow, however none available.
The property is renovated new , the room was spacious and clean and for the breakfast the hotel offers a wide selection of food. The only downside is the location, however the city centre is only at 10 min ride with a bus or tram.
Good location for where l want to be, basic but comfortable.
Luxurious hotel on the coastline in Marseille. Stunning waterfront views and excellent on-site restaurant. Easy access to the City's shopping district and Metro stations. Only downside would be very expensive brunch- go for dinner at the restaurant instead.
Well situated without a doubt! Rooms tiny though and toilet does not have washing basin so you have to go to bathroom which although very nice you have to squeeze past bed to get to.
Good location, absolutely amazing and friendly staff, good breakfast
