Near San Charles Railway. Good apartment, well to 4 persons. Sundays the reception is close between 12:00 and 14:00.
Good place to stay. Marseille is razoably known in one day.

The couple of guys working at the restaurant were very helpful and between our limited French vocabulary and his few words of English we were able to piece together a wonderful meal.
