Ben was very accommodating for our late arrival to his place, which was nice and located near Marseille's popular spots. The space itself was nice and spacious. He was helpful in getting us situated and answered whatever questions we had.
We had a wonderfull stay at benjamin's appartment. He gave us a very warm welcome with a drink and some personal tips what we should visit and how to get around. The appartment is exactly like the pictures show: big, beautifull views, very clean and light, with all the modern comfort (dishwasher and rain shower included). Definately recommended!
This was our second visit to Benjamin's flat in the space of a month (a recommendation in itself!), simply put it's beautiful, large, and central...and he's a great host.
Merci à Benjamin pour son accueil chaleureux.
L'appartement est aménagé avec intelligence et malice. Je retiens la douche avec vue mer, le petit balcon avec vue Bonne Mère, les beaux meubles que Benjamin a faits lui-même avec sa femme (table, table-basse, chaises, banquette).
L'emplacement est excellent : à 15 minutes à pied de la gare Saint-Charles et du Vieux-Port, 5 minutes de la belle rue de la République, récemment rénovée mais encore en sommeil.
L'appartement est parfaitement équipé; on a vraiment l'impression d'être chez soi.
Benjamin was a wonderful host! He had great suggestions for visiting Marseilles and helped make my trip more of an experience than I had even planned! The apartment itself has an amazing view and is one the more unique spaces I've stayed in. That said, as a single traveler, if you are not used to staying in ethnic neighborhoods, this might not be the place for you. The apartment is super close to all sorts of great neighborhoods in Marseilles, but the surrounding streets are a bit sketchy late at night. Other than that, highly recommended - great space with an amazing host!
Benjamin était super et l'appartement aussi! On a beaucoup apprécié notre séjour !
