    Bare Bones Hotel with Excellent Location
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Comfort Triple Room
    • Stayed 1 night

    Arrived late afternoon, and had to wait a bit to get into the room (albeit, only 20 minutes). Room was really small and poorly lit (we couldn't see our luggage in the closet) and bathroom was poorly designed (door slid but over the light switch; barely room for legs when on the toilet). Our next door neighbors arrived in the middle of the night and woke us up. There were also smoking, and the smell drifted into our room.

    They let us park RIGHT in front of the hotel, which was super convenient. Accommodations were fine (A/C worked, bed was comfortable enough). Breakfast was better than I expected, given small size of breakfast room. Staff was super accommodating and let us check out late so we could make a trip to the beach and come back and shower. Best thing about the hotel was convenience to harbor area--super quick walk. We ate lunch at Kitch & Cook, which was just a block over from the hotel--delicious!

    The building is quite old and you can hear noise coming from every where in it:like someone opening a door, water flowing in the tubature even people going to the toilet. Don t go there if you have a light sleep or want privacy.

    I believe the hotel on Booking.com is advertised as a 3 star, however, when we arrived we noticed The hotel is only a 2 star.

    Parking, location and the general hotel facilities were good with an easy commute to the Paul Ricard circuit. Great atmosphere in La Ciotat

    Claustrofobic
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Comfort Triple Room
    • Stayed 4 nights

    We took a 3 person room but stayed with 2. But this room is way to small for 3! Bathroom is smallest i have seen ever. Shower was broken and had to be held in hands. The toilet was basically inside the room. Almost no light in the room. Water in the sink would not go through. Breakfast is too basic, really no imagination was put into it. Parking on site, is not sufficient, little space.

    Location is great next to the harbour.

    Balcony is present, but is so small, that it's impossible to use it other than for drying swimsuits. Also the absence of air conditioning is bad for summer.

    Location is very good - close to all nice restaurants and places of interest. Staff is very nice and helpful.

    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    1) First, we were given a room with an air conditioner on the upper floor. This was a nightmare: the conditioning system was working with lots of noise, it was impossible to be in the room, not to mention the possibility to sleep. 2) Then, we changed the room to 2nd floor. It was a bit better - no noise but also no air conditioner. Since our trip was in July (a very hot month), we had to open the windows for the night. At 5 am in the morning, our room was filled with a strong smell of garbage - it appeared that the garbage machine was collecting the garbage very loudly right under our windows. 3) The shower drain did not work at all. When we asked for a repair, the answer was "we'll see to it in the morning". This was quite annoying. 4) The hotel is very shabby and is definitely not worth the amount of money it is asking for. So NOT recommended to anyone.

    The hotel is not so far from the Calanques and the city centre. In addition to the secure parking (closed at night), this seems to be its only advantage.
