Residence du Vieux Port

18 quai du Port, Marseille, 13002, France

The flat glass-and-concrete facade of this postwar structure grants all the rooms here broad picture-window views of the Vieux Port all the way to Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde. The Modernist rooms are nicely done up in Mondrian-esque primary colors with '50s-style artwork and handsome black bathrooms. For an extra €20 you can get a room with a terrace, most of which are spacious enough to accommodate a bistro table. Well-priced suites on the top floor may be worth a small splurge, with larger terraces and an extra room for kids.

PROS

  • with so few good value hotels in Marseille, this is a great option in an ideal location
  • some of the city's best views of the Old Port

CONS

  • terrace views are partially obstructed by heavy concrete railings while you're seated
