C2 Hotel

48 rue Roux de Brignoles, Marseille, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 13006, France

Fodor’s Expert Review

It took two years to transform this 19th-century home, previously occupied by a prominent Marseille family, into 20 exquisitely designed accommodations. On the first floor there’s just one guest room in what was once the parlor, while the fourth floor is home to two that are sought after for their balconies. Each spacious room is unique, with brick walls, a high ceiling, and impeccably placed lighting. Patricia Urquiola and the Campana brothers are a just a few of the designers who helped to create one of the best accommodations in Marseille. There’s a grand piano by the staircase just waiting for spontaneous fingers. A bountiful breakfast is served in the lounge, and you don't want to go elsewhere for Sunday brunch. Local chicsters join guests for a fun cocktail hour and a regular program of DJ nights, live jazz, and other hip musical moments, which can occur on any night of the week.

PROS

  • a few minutes from the port
  • top destination for design fans
  • impeccable service
  • intimate spa with steam room, Jacuzzi, and pool

CONS
