Fodor's Expert Review Alex Hôtel

13–15 pl. des Marseillaises, Marseille, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 13001, France

This reasonably priced boutique hotel, in a beautiful historic building across from St-Charles train station, has contemporary rooms done in rich neutral tones and equipped with flat-screen TVs and iPhone docking stations. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and the Alex Hotel's pancakes, omelets, croissants, and freshly squeezed orange juice enjoyed in the inner courtyard or the breakfast room should do the trick. And while you’re dining, you can check your email with an excellent Wi-Fi connection. It’s within walking distance from the Vieux Port and Le Panier, which is a good thing because there are no notable restaurants in close proximity.

PROS

  • Great prices
  • Convenient to the train station and a 15-minute walk to the old port
  • Lovely breakfast

CONS

  • Nearby restaurants aren't great

  • Not in the city center
