Five Star Marseille hotels

Most popular areas in Marseille for 5-star hotels

You're sure to find 5-star luxury amidst Marseille’s historic ports and salt-washed neighborhoods. You can discover multi-winged palaces behind filigreed gates amidst the neo-baroque Hotel de Ville, imbued with modern design and full-service spa facilities. Or, you can head to Vieux Port to bed down with sweeping views over the iconic harborside, where luxury yachts bob along the aged jetties. Then there’s clifftop Endoume, where the aquamarine waters of the Med are lined with gorgeous boutique hotels with sunning terraces and sweeping views of the sea.

Top 5-star hotels in Marseille

The guestrooms and suites of the InterContinental are surely amongst the most opulent in all of Marseille. Hidden behind a façade of sculpted Baroque architecture, they come complete with Victorian bathrooms, touting oodles of luxury travel awards, and bolstered by the Michelin-starred Alcyone Restaurant. It's the rooftop terrace at the Sofitel Marseille Vieux Port that really pulls the crowds there, with its breathtaking views over the harbor below, while the gilded, gold-leafed ceilings of the C2 hôtel on Rue Roux de Brignoles soon give way to stylish, minimalist suites just around the corner.

Where to find the best restaurants in Marseille

For some of the finest French bistros in this bustling city, be sure to delve into the tight-knit grid of lanes and alleys that is the Panier neighborhood. This millennia-old area is earthy and rough-around-the-edges, but has kitchens touting taste-bud-tinging bouillabaisse and some super fresh fish cuts from the nearby port. To the south, the area of Castellane is another fine choice for dining, complete with bespoke chocolatiers and al fresco coffee shops. And then there's the seaside Corniche, which has clifftop seafood restaurants above the crashing waves of the Med.

The most popular things to do in Marseille

Marseille is one of the oldest cities in all of Europe, making history one of the top attractions here. You can see it everywhere too, from the aged lanes and the salt-washed flagstones of the Vieux Port to the old Roman ruins of Massalia. Across the harbor and the great bulwarks of the Fort Saint-Jean belie the days of the Knights Hospitaller, while the MuCEM museum inside is one of the top draws for those interested in the peoples of the Mediterranean basin. For sightseeing, there's really no better place than the soaring Notre Dame de la Garde, which sits high on the hills of Vauban. For something a little livelier, consider grabbing tickets to see an Olympique de Marseille game at the Stade Velodrome, or head for the buzzing cocktail bars that fringe the cliffs and rocks of the Corniche area.

Best ways to get around Marseille

Marseille enjoys an efficient integrated public transport system known as the RTM, combining tram lines, metros, and buses. Tickets can be purchased from newsagents and cafés, and can be used for transport on any of the included services. Day-long tickets offer the best value. Taxis can be engaged right across the city, while Uber also operates in Marseille. Renting cars is not recommended, on account of Marseille's largely pedestrianized inner districts.
