The overall experience was good. Nice, simple breakfast. Corridor on -1 where our room was located smell weird, maybe because of humidity problems of the building. The location was excellent.

Great value for money

Location could not be better to explore Marseille. And the teams were all very attentive and considerate, delivering a level of service many 5-star hotels should get inspired from. Thank you, and keep it up!!

Your kind comments about our team's courteous and professional service encourage us to continue with our efforts to make every stay here a memorable one for our guests.

Great location.

Anonymous Solo - 02/03/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Ok stay for a great location but do not expect much. For a non-smoking hotel, the corridors and room smell like an ashtray. No fresh air. No door for the shower. Weakest wifi. No bins except for one small one. Towels did not smell fresh. Fire alarm went off for way too long after claiming it was a false alarm? Hostels do better for the same price.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We appreciate your mention of our convenient location. However, we regret you found our standards did not meet your expectations. Our team are always available to deal with any concerns you may have, so please don't hesitate to reach out when necessary so that we can do our best to find a solution. We certainly hope that we can welcome you back. Best regards, Stéphane Mojica, Manager

Chambre globalement sale. Bruit en permanence.

N'hésitez pas à nous alerter sur place en cas de nuisances afin que nous puissions y remédier au plus vite. Votre confort passe avant tout.

Cancellation policy during a pandemic is disgraceful

Customer review rating 0.5/5

M C. Couples - 07/11/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We didn’t actually go. Our flights were cancelled due to the pandemic and given that we wouldn’t be given a voucher, we had to book a new date which we obviously couldn’t do because no one knows when things will be back to normal we just didn’t go and didn’t say anything about it. We have experience of this with your hotel as an earlier trip was cancelled and we’ve been told we have to pay the difference for the new dates in April which still may not even happen.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We understand your frustration and disappointment and also that changes are ongoing and unforeseeable due to COVID-19. The safety and wellbeing of our guests is a top priority for Accor and we have implemented new cancellation/modification policies to provide our guests with increased flexibility. Please contact us to discuss the options we can offer you. We do hope to welcome you in the future. Best wishes, Stéphane Mojica, Manager

Well located. but very poor product.

Karl Business - 04/09/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The Check-in process was smooth. The room and corridor were dirty. Hair everywhere, dirty linen in the corridor. AC was very noisy. Parking was not available. No telephone in the room. I completely understand that this is a budget hotel, however, there is a minimum a guest should expect if you are trying to build loyalty.

Dear Karl, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. While we are pleased you appreciated our location, we are sorry about the issues you encountered. We regret that our high standards were not met and this will be reviewed with housekeeping, please don't hesitate to bring these matters to our attention during your stay so that we may take corrective action, as is also the case with any disturbance form our air conditioning system. We have a parking lot with a limited number of places, subject to availability and on a first come first served basis and we regret if this was already full upon your arrival. Some street parking is possible and the 'Estienne d'Orves' public car park is nearby, our team can provide you with more details if needed. We have found at present that most guests prefer to use their own phones with the incorporated technology that allows them to contact us when needed and therefore a phone is no longer a necessity. We hope that we may have the chance to welcome you back for a more pleasant experience in the future. Kind regards, Stéphane Mojica, Manager

good location, next to the port and restaurants, there is a SPAR shop 3 minutes away, budget rooms but there is everything you need, towels changed every day,there is a renovation at the moment so there are people working outside and it is a bit noisy

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. We are delighted to know that you had a pleasant stay overall and appreciated our location as well as our well-equipped rooms.

Excellent location, poor amenities

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

NikosZo Family - 07/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

The location is excellent, just next to Vieux Port. Breakfast is decent, classical Ibis Budget.Rooms are quite tiny and basic. Small corridors that give a breathless perception. Not recommended for staying more than 1-2 nights.

Dear Nikoszo, Thank you for your review. Thank you for mentioning our prime location, It is rewarding to know that you were pleased in this regard. We are however sorry to hear that the size of your room was not to your liking. Our team members are always available to assist with room selection. We are otherwise pleased that you enjoyed our tasty breakfast, a great way to start the day. We hope to welcome you again. Best wishes, Stéphane Mojica, Manager

Overbooking or lack of evidence?

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Mladen S Couples - 27/06/2019 TripAdvisor review

My overall rating could be 4 points or even 4-5, if an accident at the reception would not happen upon my arrival. I booked a room in hotel Ibis Budget Marseille Vieux Port far in advance: for my stay in June I booked in September. I always book the largest available room, if the room price is the same for all rooms (what in fact is a case with Ibis mostly). Consequently I booked a triple room (a room with a large bed and a bunk bed). I did an early check-in in advance online and I received a confirmation letter from the hotel reception that my room will be available from 12:00 on the day of arrival. Here my story of "pros and cons" begins. I came to the hotel early, relying on the kind message from the hotel reception: “The check n is at 12 am of course if we have a room available we can do the early check in”. Of course, the room was not available yet. I left my luggage in a cellar where you pay 2,00€ for lockers, and I decided to come back at 12 a.m., what was a promised time for check-in. When I came back at 12:00 a.m., my room was still not available yet. During the time I was waiting, a man from the reception offered me free hot chocolate. During my waiting I asked several times if my room is ready – answer was: not yet. At 1:40 p.m. I asked to talk with hotel manager – he was out and not available. Finally we agreed on “double room” for one night and one free breakfast for compensation. When I entered the room, it was a great disappointment. I did not expect a lot of a budget hotel, but I would expect comparable standards with Ibis budget hotels in the other countries. The room at the 2nd Floor was small, barely place for double bed, no place to put the things on (except two plastic chairs), only a little window under the roof, air-condition (of course) not working, shower not working, anyway you can not stand under the shower. Disaster. Further on I insisted to get a room I paid for. In the evening the receptionist promised me to get my room next evening. And – it happened. I got a room at the 3rd Floor, which I booked in September last year. The room was as expected, and air-condition was working! About hotel’s reception: teams are very different: a couple upon my arrival on Wednesday, June 19, was a disaster. Afternoon team was efficient, kind and communicative. It is a pity that I could not catch the manager of hotel – it must be a managerial issue that you do not get a room you pay for it, on time. Overbooking or managerial fault?

Dear Guest, Thanks for taking the time to post feedback about your stay at our hotel. We are sorry that your recent stay at our hotel didn't meet all your expectations. Whilst an apology will regrettably not alter the outcome of your experience on this occasion, I do extend it with all sincerity. However, it is stipulated on our website that check-in is at 13h00. If you had received an email inviting you to turn up at 12h00, would you kindly forward this to me at All our confirmation e-mails should be written for 13h00 so this will need to be investigated. Please be assured that this situation was not due to overbooking, but please do not hesitate to contact me further by private email. I look forward to hearing from you. Best regards, Stéphane Mojica, Manager

The hotel is in a great location minutes walk from the port and numerous restaurants and bars. Although in a busy location the room has double glazing and air conditioning. The room is basic but has all the essentials and is clean. Breakfast is very good with a variety of hot and cold elements. Happy to stay again.

MCoz74 Couples - 09/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

My wife and I were visiting friends and had previously stayed at another Ibis budget in Marseille. This one is much better; in location, cleanliness, comfort and service. For a hotel on a budget, this is one of the best we have stayed in and would highly recommend the hotel and Maseille to anyone.

great location near the old port, in the heart of the main bars and restaurants area, standard and clean rooms, basic breakfast, but service is average, with almost noone speaking english. anyway, value for money

Air conditioning broke down for thhe entire stay

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Nabeela U Friends getaway - 03/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

Unfortunately the air conditioning broke down and was not fixed for the 3 nights we were there. The first night we tried to make do with an open window however the hotel is on a semi busy street and loud noises kept us awake. We requested a fan on night 2 and we were given a water based fan (the room only gets as cool as the water you add to the fan and so we were waking every few hours to replace the warmed water). We gave up on night 3 and unfortunately felt very sleep deprived. On asking management for help or advice on any alternatives to taxi transfers to the airport we were brushed off. The breakfast is very basic and not replenished quick enough for the number of people attending. All in all definitely a budget stay.

Dear Nabeela, Thank you for your candid feedback. We are very sorry that you had a less than pleasant experience with us. We work hard to ensure the comfort and satisfaction of every guest, and in this case we apparently fell short. Still, we thank you for notifying us of the difficulties you experienced, as it is an opportunity for us to question ourselves and to look for ways to improve our services. Despite this, we hope you will give us another opportunity to welcome you for a much better stay in the future. Kind Regards Stéphane Mojica, Manager

Well located, quiet, good price. Excellent option if you are most of the time walking around, can come to rest and of course back in the evening to sleep. Close to very good restaurants and sightseeing. Close to metro and buses.

lbra7157 Friends getaway - 28/06/2018 TripAdvisor review

Cleanliness was the biggest concern for the room that we stayed in, with the main issue being black mould in the air conditioning which was concerning as this was providing air for us to breathe overnight. The hotel is however in a good location. No thrills.

Excellent vfm

jacqueline a Couples - 27/06/2018 TripAdvisor review

This hotel is ideally situated to explore one of the prime tourist areas of Marseille which must be amongst the most beautiful cities of the world. Our room was quiet and clean although it did show signs of abuse by previous occupants. Eh cigarette burns on the floor. Fully functioning air con and ample breakfast in continental style added, with free Wi-fi, to our stay. Would stay there again.
