    very noisy plumbing system. Was woken up every time someone in another room used their toilet.

  • Group of friends

    Friendly staff, good price, decent location close to train station, free wifi, free computer + internet access.

    A blanket had a small stain on it. View from the window wasn't great, but didn't stay in the room much anyways.

    The staffs were nice.

    It takes more than 15 minutes by walk to the old port.

    Hi, if you can afford do not take small basic rooms for 50-60 euros because they need to be renovated, especially bathrooms. The smell in the bathroom (at least at the 3rd floor, view to rue Forbin) was horrible, room was too small for 2 people, ugly, used, depressive. 1 night you can survive, for longer stay better pay for the room with the “view”. Pictures form the hotel show mainly the superior room which is fine, quiet, clean, renovated but costs 70 euros. Closer to the metro station you have b&b and Ibis hotels.

    The hotel is well located, near the city center and the St Charles train station.

    You can hear all the noises of the neighboring rooms

    - Hotel has a parking (if travelling by car) of its own at a cost of approx €8 per day. Wi-Fi is free and hotel staff is very helpful

    Location wise is about 1.5km away from the centre but would do if travelling on a budget.

    Convenient location with easy access to public transport (train station, regional bus terminal, metro/bus/tramway within 5-15 min walk). Good value for money although there are better offers in Marseille at this price level. Excellent buffet breakfast and welcoming, helpful staff. Free wi-fi with stable signal strength.

    The hotel is somewhat run-down but spotless.

    The hotel was ok, but I can not say that I liked something in particular. They have a nice little garden, though.

    The rooms are not properly soundproofed.

    it maybe small, not well equipped, but take the price into consideration, it is still good enough for poor people like me.

    Les Gens De mer was situated only 200 metres from La Joliette metro, which gives access to the most important parts of the city. Staff were polite and helpful, especially the lady who organised breakfasts, who was a mine of information, and very welcoming. You could drink your own wine in the bar, or courtyard, at night and there's a supermarket 50 metres away round the corner. The restaurant, Le Petit Matelot was just 2 streets down, for a good meal and wine at night, good food at reasonable prices. Le Panier was only 5 minutes walk from the hotel, and Le Vieux Port only 10 mins. Quite noisy, but all you can expect in a big city. (If you want quiet, go to a village in Provence!) Clean towels and sheets daily and an emergency supply of shampoo and bath gel provided. Only criticism is that the top coverlet had not been changed and smelt of cigarette smoker, plus had couple of stains on it. Otherwise brilliant and will go there again next April.

    The staff was very nice and helpful. The spoke English, Spanish and French. The breakfast was good as well, same as the back area where the breakfast is served, very quiet and peaceful.

    I didn't like the location of the hotel because it was at an undesirable neighborhood. It was close to the train station but it seemed a little away from the main attractions. It was like a 20 minute walk to the port so a few times we had to take the tram. The stop is only a couple blocks away and it leaves you a couple blocks from the port. Also, it seemed that the walls were very thin because every morning we could hear the closing and locking of the doors of the other rooms or the person on the next room that was coughing all night.
