Guesthouses and B&Bs
Aix’s hippest hotel is a study in clean lines, with sharp-edged built-in desks and lots of light. We actually prefer the less expensive ‘luxe’ rooms, which have the same top-end linens, but more charm. Unfortunately, staff can be surly...
Pullman Marseille Palm Beach
Built right into the rocks, this streamlined hotel has sensational sea views from all of its 160 rooms - you can specify if you want your view from the bathtub or the bed. Many rooms (none large enough to accommodate kids) also have balconies...
An elegant old stone pile owned by just two families in its hundred-plus year history, the Alizé has ringside views of the Vieux Port's carnival atmosphere and across up to the Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde...
Hôtel Belle Vue
Rooms at this old-fashioned hotel are tastefully decorated with mid-budget simplicity, but have million-dollar portside views...
This unusual 1920s period piece houses museum-like rooms with preserved original art deco turquoise-and-black ceramic bathrooms and parquet floors inlaid with geometric motifs...
With high ceilings, arched alcoves, warm colours and minimalist decor, Le Ryad draws sumptuous influence from Morocco. Beautiful bathrooms, garden-view rooms and great service make up for the sometimes-sketchy neighbourhood...
La Residence Du Vieux Port
This top view hotel got a makeover in 2010 in vaguely Jetsons-meets-Mondrian style, with swoop-backed furniture and bold primary colours. Every room looks sharp, and port-side rooms have balconies with views of the old port and Notre Dame.
Hôtel Le Manoir
Atmospherically set in a 14th-century cloister, the manor sits in a quiet wedge of the old town. Simple, spotless rooms are spacious. Friendly staff, free parking and breakfasting alfresco in the vaulted cloister round out its offerings.
Hotel Le Corbusier
For Le Courbusier lovers, stay at Hôtel Le Corbusier, two floors in the middle of the Le Corbusier’s Unité d’Habitation tower...
Les Quatre Dauphins
This sweet 13-room hotel, a former private mansion, was redone in 2010 and is fresh and clean, with excellent new bathrooms. The tall terracotta-tiled staircase (no lift) leads to four attic rooms, with sloped beamed ceilings. Wi-fi €5 per 24 hours.
Tucked away on the appealing place du 4 Septembre, close to the city and just 200m (660ft) from the sea, this quiet family-run hotel puts a contemporary twist on Provence's traditional buttercup yellow and sky blue decor and is good value for the pric...
Hôtel Des Augustins
A heartbeat from the hub of Aixois life, this former 15th-century convent with a stained-glass foyer, has volumes of history: for example, Martin Luther stayed here after his excommunication from Rome...
On the edge of Vieil Aix, this bright, cheery bargain has a sweet garden and a TV lounge. Fans in summer. Wi-fi €1.50 per 30 minutes. Free motorcycle and bike parking. No credit cards.
Colette and Jean are passionate about their city and their five exquisite chambre d’hôte rooms in their stunning villa are worth the slightly outer-city location. Breakfast of homemade everything is served on the panoramic-view terrace.
In its previous incarnation, Hôtel Sylvabelle was known as Hôtel Béarn, a somewhat shabby but friendly joint. No longer...
Sofitel Marseille Vieux Port
Marseille’s top full-service hotel commands spectacular views of the sea and the old port. Rooms have all the requisite bells and whistles, from iPod docks to feather beds; some have double-size soaking tubs. Great spa.
New Hotel Vieux Port
Sophisticated, central and decorated with an eye for detail, the rooms in this hotel are themed according to exotic locales such as Mexico, India, Morocco, Japan and Africa...
New Hotel Bompard
A little oasis, the New Hotel Bompard is set in 3000 sq m (32,231 sq ft) of Mediterranean gardens shaded by palm fronds. It has a sparkling 2.3m (7...
Lutétia is a petite house with a thimble-sized lift that whisks guests up to modern, neat-as-a-pin rooms. Bells at the twin-steepled church up the street are a handy wake-up call.
Rooms are small and were under renovation at the time of resarch. A rooftop terrace, for breakfast or drinks, adds value. The nuptial suite (from €104), up a rooftop ladder, has panoramic views.
On the hill above town, this place is simple but has a kitchen, beautiful terrace and pool.
Hotel Edmond Rostand
Antique shops surround this good-value hotel in the elegant Quartier des Antiquaires. Though its 16 stylish rooms are a bit worn, some overlook a tiny private garden, others rooftops and Notre Dame de Basilique.
