Four Star Marseille hotels

Most popular areas in Marseille for 4-star hotels

Sun-kissed Marseille hides oodles of 4-star hotels between its ancient harbor and the grand citadel of Fort Saint-Jean. Some of the best line up along the great curve of Vieux Port itself, offering travelers balconies and beds overlooking the bobbing sailboats. A little around the coast, and the former industrial hub of La Joliette beckons, touting aparthotels close to the Byzantine rises of the city cathedral. And for the football fans, there's always the smattering of options in the neighborhood of Saint-Giniez, where the plush suites abut the huge Stade Velodrome.

Top 4-star hotels in Marseille

It's all about the location when it comes to bedding down in the Mercure Marseille Centre Vieux Port. This colorful hotel has cozy rooms that sit neatly between the Marseille History Museum and the Panier neighborhood. The other side of the harbor is the province of the New Hotel of Marseille, which has an inviting al fresco pool, a huge sunning terrace, and good access to the local beach. Then there’s the Pullman Marseille Palm Beach, its infinity pools and plush suites sat in the shadow of Mont Puget and the calanques of the Cote d'Azur.

Where to find the best restaurants in Marseille

The area of Opera, just off from the main port of Marseille, has a multicultural array of eateries to suit every type of foodie – you'll enjoy Middle Eastern falafel next to fast food and Francophone fish restaurants. Then comes the creative neo-food and fusion cuisine of La Joliette, which is served up from the kitchens of rejuvenated port depots on the northern side of town. And that's not even mentioning the seemingly endless choices in Castellane – think Italian trattorias, Cypriot mezze houses, Argentinian grills, and even American burger joints.

The most popular things to do in Marseille

Whether it's the formidable crenulations and cannon-dotted palisades of the great Fort Saint-Jean or the heights of Notre Dame de la Garde, Marseille has no shortage of awesome spots to keep the dedicated sightseer busy. Be sure to check off the old Roman ruins of the ancient part of town too, and the earthy, folksy grid of streets that is Panier. You could also wonder at Le Corbusier's revered Unite d'Habitation, or go for the winding walkways of the Corniche, which weave along some beautiful coastal sections at the start of the French Riviera. And nightlife is never too far away in this student-packed town either, with the districts of Cours Julien, the new cocktail joints of J4, and the al fresco drinkeries of Vieux Port all turning wild in the evenings.

Best ways to get around Marseille

The city's Regie des Transports de Marseille – RTM – network serves all of Marseille with an efficient and affordable set of trams, buses, and metro lines. You can use the same ticket on all services, and these can be purchased in most cafés and newsagents. The RTM system doesn’t run at night, when you'll need to get a taxi or an Uber instead. To travel around the area of Vieux Port, be sure to get the cross-harbor ferry – it's the shortest commercial boat ride on the continent.
