Fodor's Expert Review Residence du Vieux Port

18 quai du Port, Marseille, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, 13002, France Fodor's Choice

The flat glass-and-concrete facade of this postwar structure grants all the port-facing rooms here broad views of the Vieux Port all the way to Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde. The Modernist rooms are nicely done up in Mondrian-esque primary colors with 1950s-style artwork and handsome black bathrooms. For an extra €30 or so you can get a room with a terrace, most of which are spacious enough to accommodate a bistro table. Well-priced suites on the top floor may be worth a small splurge, with larger terraces and an extra room for kids.

  • superb views of the Vieux Port
