10/10 Exceptional

We went for the first time to the South Of France and we found the hotel to be in a prime location. The room itself was very little, but the building is a classic one. The rooms are updated and the service was great!

8/10 Very good

Excellent location, clean room, but limited lift
Great location with excellent connection with public transport. Nice view and excellent air-conditioning system. However, the lift is available only from the 2nd floor of the building (the reception is located on the 1st floor, which is practically 2nd floor of the building).

Nicely renovated hotel. Located right next to the harbor and tons of dinning options all around. Lobby on the second floor that you have to carry your luggage up the stairs (was no big deal for me)

8/10 Very good

The very best thing about my stay at LIFE Hotel was the phenomenal view of the Old Port. If you have a chance, opt for one of the rooms with a port view -- worth a few Euros more, for sure. But whatever room you take, the location is really convenient. Boats to Chateau D'If more or less leave from the front door. Restaurants are everywhere. The room itself was small but very clean. WiFi worked great. Shower was decent. There are a few things to know about this recently updated hotel. First, there is almost no storage in the room. There was just a rack to hang a few things on. So it helps not to be traveling with too much luggage. Traveling light is also helpful because there is a fairly steep 40 step climb up to reception. (I think the staff will help you with your bags if you need help). After that there is an elevator, but it is VERY small. It's an older building, so steps and floors can be uneven, but it's all well maintained and not at all dangerous. Don't let this deter you, because it's a great place to stay and you won't find a better view at any price. But if you have a lot of luggage, or mobility issues, then perhaps this property is not ideal.

Recently renovated rooms, which are good sized (for a European hotel). Really friendly staff. Incredible location on the Vieux Port, with walking access to the area and convenient to the Metro. Downsides: Two flights of stairs to the reception area and elevator. Common areas need cosmetic renovation. Overall: Highly, highly recommended, particularly for the price. Great place to stay for a few nights in Marseilles, which is a really underrated city with much to offer.
