Loud, noisy nightclub next door & rude breakfast staff

Customer review rating 1.0/5

Matthew Couples - 27/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Didn’t manage to sleep at all until about 1am on any night - because the club next door doesn’t close till 12. Woke up every morning tired as a result - truly ruined our trip. The breakfast staff were rude. We tried the breakfast twice, and on both occasions, the female staff member sat us down and then we never heard from anybody again. We were never offered coffee or pastries - just felt ignored.

Damien L. Families - 25/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the hotel, the room was nice and the concierge has been very helpful. On the less positive side, I felt the restaurant overpriced and I was surprised that the hotel did not have a proper swimming pool. With 2 kids, we missed it a lot.

Beautiful setting

Stunning views friendly service

Noel L. Couples - 15/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We really enjoyed our recent stay at the Sofitel Vieux Port. The location affords the hotel amazing views and the employees are friendly and courteous. Advice from the concierge was helpful although some times slow and we did receive a poor restaurant recommendation for one evening away from the hotel. The signature restaurant was a charming experience. We would have appreciated more vegetarian food options generally in the hotel catering. They were quite limited.

Great Hotel

Eme L 03/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

Before our trip, I wrote an email which hadn't been taken notice of or read by management. Although German, I do my correspondence with the Sofitel Marseille in French and got a bunch of emails before arrival in ... English! And it was always about the same subject (Covid), as if we were idiots and didn't know about masks and distances. The hotel's garage is too small, very difficult to manoeuvre the car. As for us, there were not enough towels, we had to ask a second one every day. THE SPA employee told us that there was just their jacuzzi for swimming, but later we realized quite a big swimming pool that was shared with a neighbour hotel. Crazy! The handbasin's drain pipe was congested (which might happen), but to ask four (!) times to fix the problem, is a little bit too much!

quick discovery of Marseille

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Tac85 02/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Sofitel. We wanted to be downtown to discover around the old harbour. The Sofitel is very well located for that. It has a magnificent view from the restaurant deck on the old harbour. The room was in a quiet zone but too far to get the wifi correctly and it was an inconvenience for my husband who needed it for business. They were no reception number on the phone so we had to get to the lobby to ask for it and for some pillows. The ones in the room were not what you expect in a 5 stars hotel. Because of the covid situation, the number of people in the spa was restricted to eight which turned out to be nice because the place is very small! then the open hours of the spa should be longer to accommodate more people. The breakfast buffet is very good. The staff recognise some of our complains and did some gesture when we left.

Expensive and needs tons of updates

Customer review rating 0.5/5

Guymarthe J. Couples - 03/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We paid for a 600 euro a night room and it was falling apart. The best thing was the Hermès soap in the room. Our shower was broken and our tub was chipped. The water spilled everywhere and it was very dangerous. The concierge the next morning was very nice but other than that it was a waste of money. Sheets were dirty as well. This hotel needs serious updates. I’m very disappointed. The staff was nice, but I wish the the rooms were too.

Great view on the Vieux-Port of Marseille

roberta909 Business - 21/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

I think this restaurant is one of the best in Marseille. The food is absolutely delicious . the flavours were intersting and original. The service was extremely professional. I would personally like to thank Anthony who looked after us exceptionally. He is a great asset to the Sofitel and looked after us in every detail. We will definitely return and do not understnad this restaurant does not have a michelin star.

stuck in the European past

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

janH02 Family - 30/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

The hotel has a splendid location, but if you are not European and have electronic equipment, beware. Our suite had a nice desk, but both electric sockets for the desk were occupied by lamp and phone, so there was nowhere to plug in a laptop. One could plug into a wall socket 8 m away to use at a table, but that required the cord to stretch dangerously across the floor. All electric sockets are for only European plugs. there is no USB connection to charge a cell phone. There is no phone in the bathroom. One needs to log into the Wifi fresh each time - it does not stay connected even for a day, let alone a stay.

Everything was perfect, the room, the staff, the breakfast, the view from the rooftop.... All you can expect from a Sofitel can be provided by the Vieux port hôtel. It will be our choice of destination if we come back again to Marseille.

Disappointing for a Sofitel

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

johnm986 Couples - 26/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

Stayed here in a nice terrace room for the Bastille day weekend, the room phone did not work and could not be fixed over the weekend, the communications regarding the weekend travel disruption were extremely poor and access to the pool (owned by the Novotel) was blocked necessitating a journey via the basement, the road, and car park to get there.the attitude to these problems was dismissive for a hotel of this price (the concierge said, 'we are not 5 star only 4 star')

Dear JohnM, First of all, thank you for taking the time to share with us you experience at Sofitel Marseille Vieux Port. We are very sorry to read about your experience with us and find out we did not answer to all of your needs. Your feedback is very important to us and gives us the opportunity to become better.

Mary W Couples - 18/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel Marseille Vieux-Port for two nights from the 13th to 15th May. We had an fabulous stay at the hotel. The service from out arrival, check in and check out was faultless. Our large room had a terrace which looked directly toward the Marseille Port, which is stunning. An excellent breakfast was served on the 7th floor which has a spectacular view of the Port area this included the cruise liner and ferry area.. We ate at the restaurant on the 3rd floor next to the lobby and again enjoyed wonderful views. The food was delicious and the service very professional. We were also lucky with the weather, sunshine and blue skies. It was an all together perfect stay. If we were to visit Marseille again in the future this would be our first choice of hotel to stay.

Dear Mary W, Many thanks for this wonderful comment about our hotel. We are more than happy to hear that you had a great time with us and that we have fulfilled most of your expectations. Your satisfaction is by far our main priority and we are glad to have achieved it with you. We hope to have another opportunity to welcome you again soon in Marseille, Best regards,
