I had a wonderful time. I would like to warmly thank the entire Team for welcoming me. My Spa experience was great. The room was very comfortable and I really like the size of the bath and the products available to me. The bed was also very comfortable and cosy. I appreciated the art behind the TV console. Overall a lovey moment with you.

Beautiful location. We got a nice room with an amazing view on the port of Marseille. Very dedicated and attentive staff and overall excellent service. Very good breakfast. Maybe the spa facilities could be ameliorated, to small pool.

Great location to explore the harbour and old town. A comforatble hotel with great service and good amenities.

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.

great restaurant les trois forts

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

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.

Dear Client, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Marseille Vieux-Port. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations in terms of electronic equipment. At Sofitel Hotels & Resorts, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Nassima A, Room Division Manager

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.
