            What's nearby

            What's nearby.

            The hotel puts you at the fast-paced track, so you are going to spend your time rather walking than driving as all places of interest are within a short walking distance from the hotel. Thus, Palais Du Pharo and Abbaye De Saint Victor both demand a 10-minute walk, while Musee De La Marine and Musee De Vieux Marseille are in 15 minutes on foot. The Sofitel Marseilles places you only a 5-minute walk from the beach and a 10-minute walk from the city center.

            • I's quite cheap as a cab is at least 45 euros and the staff are polite great location. This hotel could be magnificent and the room service is amazing. The tapas in the bar is good as well and the Sofitel breakfast is an excellent start to the day.

              Fabulous view over the old port, the outdoor pool was dirty and small.

              On the downside, the windows are very poorly isolated.

            • Wonderful days at sofitel vieux port in Marseille, huge park 2 mins walk away and the view is superb across hundreds of moored yachts and powerboats. The hotel is really excellent, the staff is extremely professional and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. Sauna is large enough as well as hammam and breakfast buffet is generally continental.

              The expansive pool area, dirty streets and really NOT worth the money. Unfriendly reception and aha Internet is not for free. The food is less than ordinary.

            • View excellent and great hotel. The service was exceptional and showers were large and comfortable. The bar on the ground floor have a good menu too and the food was delicious.

              The main dinning room is far to expensive.
