Hotel Review: Hotel Carre Vieux Port

We chose the Hotel Carre Vieux Port because the price was right, and we were pleasantly surprised by how great of a value it was. Though the lobby isn't much to look at and the lift is scary at best (the tiniest I've been in, even compared to dozens of other European lifts I've experienced), everything was clean, the room was a decent size by European standards, and the front desk staff was very pleasant. You can pay a little extra to have breakfast "included" but we chose to do our own thing, and the bakery right next door makes delicious croissants!

Marseille itself is a bit gritty, but the Vieux Port is probably one of the best places to stay and the Hotel Carre is located only a block from the main drag. If you have to go to Marseille, I definitely suggest this hotel.
