location, very close to the airport. had shuttle service as early as 5:00 a.m. it is difficult to figure out how to enter the place as it is completely fenced in.
Cleanliness, effective shuttle service to airport, restaurant and bar, excellent breakfast buffet, outdoor heated swimming pool, friendly staff N.A.
Clean and somewhat modern. Restaurant is not very good, service is terrible. Definitely go next door to the Pullman, it's way better. Rooms are very very tiny and super basic.
Breakfast, clean rooms, convenient, location near airport, public space.
For the price and location it was exactly what we wanted and did meet our expectations. The room was very small but clean. The location at the airport was excellent. The shuttle bus was on time and provided very good service. A wake up call system would have been nice since we had a very early flight to Amsterdam. There are no phones in the room.
This is a great hotel for a family needing a place to stay nearby for the night while waiting on a morning flight. We stayed here four years ago when it was a holiday inn. The current incarnation of this hotel is much improved. Very friendly and attentive staff, nice pool, and great food. We left for our morning flight refreshed.
The personnel, welcoming, friendly and professional. The furniture, old and used, the carpet dotted, the bathroom outdated. Does not correspond to a 4-star hotel.
The room was awesome! Sauna did not work properly, pool was closed on a nice day.
I am writing because the employees at the front desk were consistantly helpful, professional in every way. When I had to leave at 4:30 AM for the airport the staff were wonderful, drove me to the airport, and helped load the bags onto a cart, paid the coin for the cart I did not have, generously in his spirit. It was a truely wonderful experience when things need to go well. Yes, the restraunt was fair at best. The staff were not attentive, and the food was barely satisfactory. I had filet of beef 2 times there, it was tuff, and I had to ask to have it cooked a little more, and it came back well done, I had asked for medium rare. The bar tender as I only observered her caring for someone at a different table seemed friendly and present, while the server I had an officious attitude.
Its proximity to Marseilles Airport, courtesy of personnel and excellent restaurant including first class buffet breakfast
Room, bed was very good
Very good hotel, close to the airport. I received an upgrade on the arrival which was very nice. Comfortable, spacious room, good internet. Nice restaurant and very good breakfast. The service was very good and super friendly. Free shuttle to and from the airport The restaurant and breakfast were a bit expensive, but the food was good
the remodeled design was very contemporary and beautifully appointed. the pool is incredible, and there is a gym, with a suana and steam room! the dining room was also excellent. we even got upgraded upon arrival which was a very nice touch! they still have some rooms that have not been remodeled and are still in the "provence" style which absolutely shocks you after being in the lobby and hallways which are all contemporary. however, we mentioned to the staff, and they immediately switched us to a contemporary room.
Free shuttle service from airport to hotel and vice versa, but also to my business location.
helpful staff , clean rooms
Very friendly and helpful staff, very high standard and spacious room, furnishing, "supplies" (bathrobes, slippers, soaps, shampoos, etc.) lighting much above average, excellent variety of TV channels, very comfortable and large bed. Air quality in the room - too little fresh air in the A/C circulation
The entire staff there was very helpful, and all spoke English. Great breakfast, and decent sized rooms.
The close accessibility and proximity to the airport and the free shuttle service. Besides the restaurant food was excellent and reasonable in price.
Convenience to airport terminal and car hire (1 minute by car). Very efficient free courtesy bus from airport terminal (came within 2-3 minutes after calling from free terminal phone). 24 hour clean swimming pool (towels provided)/ poolside area. Nice, quiet clientele. Definitely recommended- our holiday started with this hotel stay instead of later on as you don't feel you're at an airport hotel. Breakfast (though reasonable selection) a bit pricey- 11 Euros per person. Best to book room online as difference for us was 40 Euros when we booked our last night at the desk as we liked the hotel so much (but of course you can never fully tell if you like the hotel until you get there initially)
The swimming pool was a good size and pleasant to swim in and sit near - a really good facility if, like me, you reach the airport then just want to stay put till your flight in the morning. It was also easy to use the navette to and from the terminal. Some decor probably needing a bit of a facelift, e.g. carpets, but in fact there were some tradesmen doing some renovation there.
The staff was very helpful. The room was in cery good shape. Nothing
Quick check-in after a long flight. No hassle. Good breakfast.
The shuttle service was easy and efficient, the room clean, the bed comfortable, and breakfast was good! The hotel is perfect if you need to stay close to the airport.
staff are really helpful and friendly.breakfast was perfect.location is perfect.there is a airport transfer so this is very good.thank you very much. no
Very close to the airport and the parking for the Ryanair terminal MP2, which is quite separate from the main terminal. It was good to have extra pillows available. Would have liked kettle in the room to make a cup of coffee as we had an early morning checkout
The towels were old dirty and torn. The sheets did not cover the bed
Proximity to the company for which I was working. Friendly staff. The room smelled of smoke.
Room too noisy (outside noise)! Also - someone kept going back and forth on clicking high heels on the hard floor just above us - till late at night !! Very disturbing !
The staff bent over backwards to make our stay wonderful. We had a dreadful travel time getting to the hotel because of the train strike, rain, etc, and Patricia and Danielle in particular made our arrival very sweet. All the staff in the hotel were truly gracious.
We liked the hotel very much. We thought that the evening meal was quite poor...the fish selection was actually very bad.
Friendley staff, stunning location. Restaurant is trying too hard. Steak pieces on a skewa were too large, and a steak knife would have been useful. Steak cooked perfectley. Croquettes, very bland, and not really as advertised - sorry. 16.50 Euro for a glass of champagne is a little steep. Swimming pool was cool and the surface was covered with flies, not really inviting.
The breakfast cost should be included in the tariff they are charging and give composite packages including breakfast+ dinner, as the resort is way from Salon
Excellent hotel. Lots of charm, very old stones. Excellent gastronomic food, marvellous view, nice people who always try to help, great pool. Really we enjoyed this stay : "hors du temps". everything was perfect
Friendly staff Walls too thin!
Reception staff very good. The price is keen. Proximity to the airport. Free wifi. It's a challenge to get to (if you're coming from the airport drive one junction down to Eurocopter - turn round and come back the other way). The room is poky but if you simply intend it to be a place to sleep it's fine.
Excellent breakfast and we enjoyed an evening meal too. Food was fresh, well prepared and good value for money. Room rather small but okay for a short stay. Had some difficulty with the swipe card to open the door to our room but staff attended to problem promptly.
service staff is excellent the room are not equipped with hair dryer,hot kettle etc.
Staff very helpful - took me to train station.
OK.The beds was quite good.Moore like a motel. Have only a expensive taxi to offer early in the morning
ok breakfast Very small room
Very pleasant staff. Dinner was excellent noise from the stairway and doors
Staff was super friendly, great great breakfast. room was clean but there was strong musty smell. Great location near aeroport. Hotel has a cool bar area.
quiet restaurant shut
Comfortable, clean room and bathroom. Nice breakfast. Pleasant service. very good shuttle service.
Closed to the airport.The rooms are nice,comfortable beds nice and clean! The shuttle service very good. Thanks Some of the staff could be more friendly.
Hotel was close to the airport. The shuttle service was very helpful. The staff helped us in English with driving directions to the airport.
Location for an early flight in the morning
The blanket on the pull-out bed was dirty!
Convenience to the airport The woman who was working at the front desk was very curt and made little effort to be helpful with explaining how to return our rental car to the airport and then get the hotel shuttle back to the hotel. In all of our recent trip to France she was the only person who stood out as un helpful.
very smart and clean staff pleasent and helpful
The restaurant staff were very good - friendly and attentive. The quality of food in the restaurant was also good for this type of hotel. The pool was clean, well located and of a good size. The shuttle bus service was terrible! On arrival at the airport, we called the hotel 3 times before the bus arrived - we ended up waiting 1.5 hours for the bus and got no apology. We booked this hotel specifically for proximity to the airport only to find out at check in that the bus didn't go to the airport the following morning early enough for us to make the flight -we had to pay 30€ in a taxi.
big rooms, friendly staff no elevator, unusual for a 3 star
the welcome kettle with coffee and tea. However some biscuits would have been appreciated we were there only for 1 night
restaurant staff were very slow. Manager needed to assist them in order to get served
very cramped toilet
very friendly reception staff.
Staff were very friendly,our disabled room was well equipped (not easy to find in France) with parking directly outside.The location was in a quiet suburb and the hotel pool was excellent.At the Booking.com price this hotel was excellent value.
Pleasant receptionist, secure car park and easy access to hotel The rooms were advertised on the website as having a mini bar, but there isn't one and I had to walk from reception to my room (this involves going outside the hotel, around it and up the satirs, with my drinks! I also prefer a quilt on the bed and hate blanket and sheet. This is not a complaint, just a fact.
Everything, very nice - great. Will book again for the next time. Unfortunately very difficult to find - no signs in the town indicating the hotel, even with GPS was difficult - but worth it.
convenient location cost of breakfast
I like that the garden is closed during the night and very nice silence during the night non
One day we found the door of our room not closed by key; fortunately everything was untouched....
Best price, large-clean rooms, air conditioned, nice pool, good location for sighseeing in lower Provence, highly recommended No dislikes
the breakfast was way to expensive. there was only one small piece of paper,in french that had breakfast info.
Good service, friendly staff. A good choice of food for breakfast. The hotel has no food other than breakfast. As the hotel is in a residential area there is nowhere to eat in the evening without a 30 minute walk into the centre of Istres. A car is desirable!
We are a Belgian family (with 5 young kids!) living in the uae who stopped in the lddm on our way south. The warm welcome of Nathalie and Philippe made us feel at home from the first minute! The hotel and its staff really fulfilled our expectations. Its family orientated in a relaxing environment serving healthy food and owners who are avaiable for a plesant chat! The kids, including mum and dad, really enjoyed the pool and tennis court. Dear Nathalie and Philippe with your enthousiasm you are ensuring your rebookings! All the best and looking forward in seeing you again! Luc, Elke, Hanne, Louka, Omar, Elias and Jade.
It was a fairly good base to explore the region A bit remote, fairly spartan facilities, needs a lot of updating, no fridge in room, insects on every wall
The hotel staff The breakfast was poor and the location very difficult to find.
Very friendly with well decorated rooms in typical provencal flavour. Lovely pool with lovely garden, hammock, sunbeds. The kids loved it. There is a bar to have a drink around the pool. Meals on demand so order in advance if you want to eat. Salon de Provence only 4 km away. Very relaxing. Some people, especially if not French speakers may not feel comfortable with the intimate nature of hotel but even if the reception is closed you can come and go as you please since the rooms are in a separate building with a separate key.
Pool and hospitality of the owners. Breakfast is rather poor...
The hotel was to far away from Aix and Marsielle. There was no other way to transport than taxi, and that was very expensive.
Location to the airport The room had a very bad odor and we had to sleep with the windows open just to get rid of the odor. The carpets were full of holes and stains and you could feel the box springs in the mattress. The pillows were flat and smelly.
Location, directions and secure car park Rooms need updating. Sink very stained
small but competent staff tired rundown facility
the meal at night information about the shuttle did not reach us in time, nor was the price mentioned
The extreme helpfulness of the staff and suitable meals My navigator could not find it
close to the airport
The directions for the hotel were hard to follow
We slept well. Yes, plenty. The bedroom was shabby and in need of refurbishment. The bathroom was very shabby - peeling paint, no plug in washbasin,an open hole in bathroom wall. It was generally depressing and third-rate. The public areas too were dismal. Generally a very poor hotel.
very convenient. good location. very clean.
Staff was helpful, room was clean and comfortable Breakfast was overpriced
Wirless internet was excellent. room was missing vital services like water pot, refregrator.......etc
the price the location
Protected car park. Very friendly staff. The free wifi The position of the hotel. The breakfast must be included in the price
service and safe parking
Quiet at nighttime. Nice terrace for breakfast or other use. Wifi did not work 100%: browsing web was fine, but not possible to send/receive email. I tried a number of 'tricks' (such as tunneling thru VPN) but without luck.Breakfast was fairly basic.
Convenient locaton from airport on route to Aix en Provence No
Wifi in the room worked flawlessly. Nice breakfast in the morning served until 10:30. Room darkening curtain. Window that opened entirely (a rarity these days). Large parking in front of hotel. Friendliness and service of the desk staff. Extra pillows in closet. The use of duvet on the bed rather than standard sheet and blankets provides no adjustment for the temperature: it's and all or nothing situation; either you are too cold and you sweats. Fortunately we could open the window and it was somewhat cool outside. Also it is not easy to find, even with Mapquest directions; more strategically placed signs would help.
new hotel, clean, nice terrace for breakfast, elevator, guaranted parking not enough choice for healthy breakfast, quite small room, no balcony
Very nice staff. My room was really charming and comfortable. Huge swimming pool. Very good breakfast. I will come back with my family.
The position in perfect to visit Provence and Istres is a beautiful well-kept town near the see. The staff is gentle, caring and helpful. The hotel is excellent for this price, it is not a 4 or 5 stars so don´t expect luxury. But the pool and the garden area is lovely, and so are the rooms. Plus, we travelled with a dog and a cat and they are accepted anyhow! I would definitely reccomend this hotel. Mostly very little details, but the bed was kind of small and unconfortable, the room wasn´t perfectly clean when we arrived, the breakfast is good but expensive...
The Manager, Gerald, was fantastic - so helpful and informative and all the staff were pleasant. Most of the parking was shaded by open garages or trees. The room for 4 consisted of 2 bedrooms & a jacuzzi bath in bathroom - fantastic.
Staff, Cleaniness Decor in some parts of the hotel
very nice staff, feeling to be at home, nice pool area, ideally for couples 30+ with no children, ideal place to relax, small but nice rooms, excellent ac,free wifi, good rates via booking.com, good harbour fish restaurants just 5 minutes away (with car) maybe the location is not good for people without car, no other cons
Very familiar atmosphere, nice gardenview, near a small forest (for jogging). Breakfast buffet with yoghurt and cereals. Very nice room and many details in the hotel to discover and with pleasure loook at. Very nice interior decorating. Hard to find (escorted by policemen in the middle of the night...).Lack of tomatoes, vegeable, read with cereals on the breakfast buffet. It would be even better if there was a posssibility to do some cooking.... not many open resaurants or cafes near the hotel. You must be a guset with a car.
The staff were really helpful, and very warm. The hotel was recently renovated and all the rooms were different. Our room was really nice. The hotel is situated in a beautiful pinewood park and has a very nice swimming pool. Great price for French hotels. The breakfast like in majority of French hotels was not included in price.
The location is very good. Furthermore, the staff was very friendly
Staff were very helpful. They arranged our taxi for our departure.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. I thought the breakfast was very good. No cost for children under 6, so with 2 small children it was a great deal. The cleaning/breakfast staff was very friendly, always smiling and helpful. Even in August though, the pool was a little chilly. The playground was rundown and didn't seem safe for little ones. Should not be advertised unless they clean it up.
