If you’re looking for a well-located, sleek and stylish base for your Marseille stay, you can’t go wrong with budget boutique Alex Hôtel. Located just a hop, skip and a jump away from the rather grand Saint-Charles train station, the hotel is not only well-placed for an early/late arrival/departure but just a 15-minute walk from the vibrant hub-bub of the famous Vieux Port.
First impressions can be deceiving: the classic, Marseille exterior of Alex Hôtel belies the cool, modern design inside. Perhaps our favourite thing about Alex Hôtel though, is the staff – they offer the warmest of welcomes and go out of their way to ensure you have all that you need during your stay.
As you can expect from a European hotel, a continental breakfast is served each morning. Unlike many hotels however, there is also the option of scrumptious pancakes, waffles and, of course, French toast. Tuck into your morning fuel in the lounge or inner courtyard. Fancy a lie-in? No problem! Breakfast is served until midday so you don’t miss out on your beauty sleep.
If you’re keen to try the classic Provençal bouillabaisse, we highly recommend heading over to the Vieux Port, where Chez Michel serves a delicious one.
Each of the 21 rooms are well designed, with pops of colour, contemporary light features and comfy beds. The bathrooms are good too, with great showers and brightly coloured bathrobes (always a treat).
In the heart of the Marseille Saint Charles quartier, you’re only a short walk from the bustling Vieux Port, not to mention a large train station if you fancy exploring further afield. The staff are very happy to help in booking tickets and tours.
