Hotels in Marseille

Unsurprisingly, many of the best Marseilles hotels sit along the seaside, but a handful of sleek, modern accommodations are available deep in the heart of the city as well. For those more interested in making Marseilles into a temporary home away from home, look into renting a private or commercial cottage along the bay.

For those seeking an upscale experience, a Marseilles hotel like the Grand Hotel Beauvau is an excellent choice. The highly rated hotel is located directly opposite the Old Port and offers unforgettable views of the Mediterranean seaside. On the more affordable side, there is MGallery Beauvau, a quaint, boutique hotel featuring a first-floor bar and a port view. Travelers looking to truly personalize their experience should consider renting a seaside home. Many places, like the Vue Notre dame de la Garde for instance, offer rooms that can accommodate everyone from a newlywed couple to a family of four. Look for lodgings near the city’s metro system for easy access to every part of this bustling city.
