... point we tried to park the car in one of the all too familiar (and rare) parking spaces. Kez had to jump out in the pouring rain to guide me between the moped and another little matchbox car. After all that the VW wouldn't fit. Kez. I remember seeing Kez moving back to the car and then, as if by magic, she was gone and there was a bang on the side of the car! Warning, warning.....mother down in very wet Italian street! Like a ...
... any sort of carpark for almost an hour before finally managing to grab a space halfway up a sidewalk. We then walked into town and beheld the beauty of the area before deciding to jump on a boat and head out to the many natural inlets that scattered the cliffs nearby. The weather was perfect (around 27c). Upon returning, we went to a small shoreside cafe and ordered a yummy crepe and some ice cream, and then went to a neighbouring clothing ...
... a map of Aubagne en Provence and things to do out of the city, we resorted back to finding a charger adapter. Our next step was breakfast and charging my camera, I really need to buy a spare battery. We headed into town and found a "Boulangerie" (French bakery). The croissants were again delicious, I haven't had one bad pastry here in France, EVER. That's one of the main things which I love about France, they still have their designated bakeries, fish mongers ...
... is doing. Haha. We're running out of conversation starters, but we figure out something to talk about. That night we went to an Irish pub and met some Americans there. They were working and living in Marseille. It was nice talking to someone fluent in English and they told us some cool things we should do. Apparently Marseille is mostly owned by the mafia. Hmmm very interesting and explains why things are a little nicer, like the ...

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!
