... beautiful natural beaches! We had a narrated bus tour through the city of Toulon on our way back. Toulon is France's military port that guards from the Mediterranean Sea. The color of the water on the sea was a crystal blue. The sight was absolutely priceless. Driving through the beautiful seaside town of Sanary was also picturesque. Jacques Cousteau once lived there and his son still ...
Slow start to the day, the French eat so late we were having dinner at 10pm last night so no surprise we didn't wake until 8am this morning, the last thing I wanted was Breakfast. We got a few things sorted with Carol and Eric for our little apartment, my first job is to clean the kitchen area, its recently been painted throughout and the bathroom is all new, we have a brand new bed. As you know the French love to have lunch so that was next ...

Another day off tomorrow, we haven't even started and we have two days off - wow this is not what we are use to, normally we always do so many hours before a break, Carol & Eric are very generous, they have their hardship story of an accident that Eric had that changed their lives 3 & 1/2 years ago - ...
... a great time although it was very hot and the sun glare was unpleasant....but better than winter in Melbourne.
On the way home, the trusty navigator routed us through Salon de Provence. I was sure we'd been there before but no...well worth the stop, although their version of iced coffee was very odd and had a big swig of almond syrup ...yuck.
Boris and Marg had volunteered to be cook dinner. They had done shopping at the markets before we headed out ...

Historical Traveler Reviews New Hotel Vieux Port Marseille
I stayed here with my husband during the first weekend of September. The room was cosy and classy, and the bathroom was quite large. We got a deal for 90€ per night, though in retrospect we should have taken the 104€ per night deal, which had breakfast included. If not included, the breakfast is 11€ per person. Though no cooked food, it does offer cold meats, cereals, fruit, etc. and was better than I'd expect for the price.
Following a research on the tripadvisor website, we have selected the New Hotel Vieux Port in Marseilles due the very positive previous reviews concerning this hotel.
This hotel was the best thing in Marseille
I didn't much care for Marseille, but as a budget travellor that has stayed in 2/3 star hotels all around the world this was the best hotel ever! The themed floors add such a nice touch. The bathrooms felt like you were in a luxury hotel. The view depends on the room - you had to twist your head but still you COULD see the port and let's face it - there is not much apart from the port. Location was superb - metro, port, evrything at your fingertips. Not sure if I would be this excited if I didn't get it for half price but from what I paid it was tremendous. I definitely recommend.
Very good place to stay
My wife and me, together with our 1-year old stayed in the New Hotel Vieux Port for 3 nights in May.
The location is among the best in the city, very close to the port, the Canabiere boulevard and a Galleries Lafayette shopping mall (which is equipped with a large garage).
The hotel does not leave the impression of a typical downtown tourist-hotel, as rooms are amazingly decorated, very clean, well equipped and air conditioned.
Breakfast was excellent and service was very kind.
We will choose it again for our next stay in Marseille.
Booked an internet special for one of their cheaper rooms for two nights including breakfast for 99 euros per night for 2 people.
Just stayed at this hotel last week. What a great location! Steps to the main drag, shopping, metro, old port, and a plethora of restaurants! Had a bit of difficulty finding it as it's on a street that's only 1/2 block long - but look for the church, it's right behind it. Don't be fooled by the tiny reception area. Rooms have been recently decorated according to themes. We booked two rooms - one was decorated in the warm colors of Provence and the other was in an Asian theme. Both were spacious, comfortable, and had sparkling clean bathrooms. Very friendly staff.
Great Atmosphere and Location
It may be a little hard to find, but the taxi driver didn't have much problem. The service was excellent! My room was amazingly larger than I expected. Each floor has it's own atmosphere. The second floor has a Moroccan flavor and I was quite comfortable. Just steps away from the port this was an ideal location and great value for the money. Next time I'm in Marseille I'm definitely staying here.
Great Location - once you've found it...
Great price, location just a few steps from the waterfront. Room large, comfortable and v. attractively decorated.
Downside was that hotel is difficult to find (we had to drive around block 3 times to figure out how to get to the hotel) and only parking is in nearby parking garage (something their website did not mention...). Oh, and skip the breakfast - a complete waste of money!
