Hotel Maschotte - not again

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 31, 2006

It has a three star rating , situated by Rue Canébiere, one of the citys main streets.

We had room 509, facing the large Stock Exchange. It had french doors and a small balcony. Using this is not for those of you with fear of heights, though. The room was spacious, with grey wallpaper and wall to wall carpets in the same colour. It had a larger bathroom than at Alizé with a bathtub and a niche for the toilet.

I found, however, the room less clean than the room at Alizé. There were dust along the edge of the carpet. It was a bit shabby with stains on the floor. The bathroom had marks from a previous leakage leaving large brown stains on the ceiling over the toilet. The linoleum on the bathroom floor had burn marks from cigarettes and was also seriously stained.

The big pré of this room was the balcony. You could open the doors and enjoy the view of the busy street below. It was more quiet at night.

Unique Quality: The hotel has easy access for guests as there are just a few steps up to the ground floor reception area. The rooms are situed on the 3rd to the 6th floor. The lift was very small, having room for two small people with two suitcases. It did not feel very reliable as it was very slow to start and the doors tended to open and close at the strangest moments. The breakfast room was situated at the 5th floor. Breakfast is not included in the price. We paid around €180 for two nights.

Directions: It has a three star rating , situated by Rue Canébiere, one of the citys main streets. If you arrive by airplane, take the bus from Marignan (airport) to railway station. Change to subway, stop Vieux Port.

A PERFECT *** HOTEL....

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 4, 2005

To start with: this hotel is perfectly situated at the beginning of la Canebière, next to le Vieux Port; the Toutist office is opposite as is the Metro.....what more could one wish for?

The hotel has nice rooms with a balcony, which is such an extra in a city centre!

Kind, helpful staff.

An elevator makes things easier....

Unique Quality: Perfect continental breakfast and not only tea and a croissant which is quite common in French hotels!

Directions: next to le Vieux Port.....opposite the Tourist Office....
