          Location

          The room does not correspond at a 4* Hotel... The bed was a sofa- bed.View on staff break. Noisy air conditioning. Bath room like in a Formule 1 hotel ...Breakfast not included in price, so expensive regarding quality/comfort and price

        • Single
          7.8

          The hotel was a good value and the location was good. The fitness center was also nice.

        • Family with children
          5.8

          The location and the friendly staff in both the restaurant and the front desk. The food is also very good.

          Everything else. It's way below all Novotels I have ever stayed. It's, at the best an Ibis, a bad Ibis. It's more like a Formule 1 with Novotel pricing. Nobody to help you with the luggage. Kids cannot go to the indoor pool, so it's extremely unfriendly. Cleaning staff was rude...very rude. The general state of the facilities are a little outdated and looks like it had been upgraded for the latest time in 1993, maximum. The rooms needed a serious refurbishing and the air-conditioning/heater made a lot of noise but didn't blow any air, hot or cold.

        • Single
          7.0

          The room was not very clean. I found I.E. opended half empty soda tins in the cabinet below the mini bar. Informed front office, but these items remained in my room. Also the Nespresso cup tray was empty up on arrival. Also this was reported to teh front office, but no follow up.

        • Family with children
          6.2

          Nice hotel with English speaking staff.Good breakfast and heated swimming pool.

          Shame about filthy carpet (black stains as if grease) and not very clean shower plus 18 euro daily parking charge.This does not deserve 4 stars.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          Friendly staff at the reception. The loudest i.e. the best fire alarm we have ever experienced! You must be completely dead not to wake up if the alarm goes off in the night... Fortunately it was a false alarm in our case.

          Crappy food at the restaurant, would not recommend the club sandwich to anybody. Slow service at the pool bar.

        • Single
          6.2

          The location was O.K. although currently there is so much construction in the city that it's a hassle getting anywhere, but that is not the hotels fault. The lobby area is nice, the restaurant has great views, the pool (shared with sofitel) is beautiful although not the biggest thing in the world. I satyed in an executive room, it was ok but sparse... Not very excutive seeming... I only had breakfast, the food choices were good but the coffe was horrible (see that I din't like)

          Overall, on the surface the hotel was ok. But if you look below the surface, the rooms were tired, especially the bathtrooms, the grout between the tiles and thee bathtub was coming out making everything look dirty. The coffe machine at breakfast was broken (the milk tube stuffed up) for two mornings in a row! The beverage choice at breakfast was on the poor side (although as I said the food was great). My room overlooked a parking lot although I did see a bit of the sea from it. The staff was ok, attentive but uninterested and not particularly friendly. All in all... Disappointing somehow although as I said on the surface it all seems good...

          It was within walking distance of the city centre while being away from the building work. The outside terrace for breakfast offered superb views. The hotel far exceeded my expectations for a Novotel compared to others I have stayed in previously

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Cheaper options for bar and restaurant in the Novotel underneath the Sofitel.

          5 star hotel, ( Sofitel) using three star ( Novotel) facilities , like out door swimmimg pool and out door restaurant facilities

        • Older travelers
          10.0

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

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Very efficient and friendly staff, excellent accommodation and superior restaurant. We enjoyed our stay.

        • Couple
          9.6

          This is an excellent hotel.

          The parking is tight, get the porter to part it instead.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Very comfortable. Fabulous view of the old harbour.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The most elegant, luxurious hotel we have ever visited. Hotel and its restaurant were expensive, but definitely 5 star and definitely worth it!

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          It was the finest hotel we've ever stayed at.
