Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Yolande was a wonderful host. She made my girlfriend and I feel right at home and even shared a meal with us. I highly recommend staying with her!

  • Yolanda is a very organised, spick and span and precise woman. She is willing to give you all the necessary information you need. The house is located in a good position, very close to the city centre. It is compact but has all the necessary to spend a tranquile holiday. There is also a nice terrace where you can relax yourself!

  • Even I was unfortunately not able to meet Yolande in person I always felt a very warm welcome. Yolande took very much care of my wellbeing and had organized everything in a perfect way. Thank you very much Yolande, hope to meet you in person. I will come back.

  • Yolande is a delicious host that became a friend.
    No matter of time- spaces or else.
    The part of Marseille in which she lives is friendly and there many cafè and (website hidden) need to take the metro to reach the vieux (website hidden) it was all ok!!!!

  • Great place to stay. Yolande is a lovely person, caring, relaxed, open-minded. It feels like I left a friend behind. I'm gonna miss "our" evening cooking (in fact she cooked for us) and the conversations. As for the place - you can see Notre Dame de la Garde from the room you get (in fact from your bed) and you have your own balcony. The flat is safe and clean, its style sort of bohemian. The location is top-notch - Notre Dame, Vieux Port, Cours Julien in walking distance; with Castellane you have one of the central traffic hubs right in front of the door (2 metro lines and plenty of buses). Thank you so much, Yolande!

  • I really enjoyed staying at Yolanda's. The place is clean, the room is comfortable with direct access to a cozy terrace and nice view. Yolanda made me feel very welcome and at home right away. She was very generous, and friendly; always inviting me to her delicious meals. I enjoyed hanging out with her and her cat and sharing stories . Plus her place is central with the metro right around the corner. ,When I am back in Marseille, I would definitely like to stay with her again. Thanks Yolanda!

  • The house is small but cozy, and Yolanda has been very kind. She speaks english perfectly and prepared us a nice breakfast. She let us use her internet connection and printer. Definetely look for her place if we'll ever be in Marseille again!

  • Yolande is awesome. She fed me both nights and left me coffee in the morning! Her kitty is really sweet and just hangs out.
    The terrace was sooo wonderful. It is warm up on the top floor, but that room always had a breeze with the terrace door open!
    The flat is in very clean and in a wonderful place right next to the Place Castellane, above a building with a lovely smelling bakery. Yes the flat is up a narrow, semi-curving, tilting staircase, up many flights...but it's the same in every old apartment I've found in Europe! And I personally love the mini-workout.
    The room is quiet but the intersection is quintessentially Marseille with the sound of traffic and horns, which made me smile in the morning!
    The metro is just outside, so is bus 19 which got me home after a trip to the Callanques, and I walked to the old port, and all over the town from her place.
    Hopefully I can go back to Marseille and visit again!

  • Yolande is an English French native speaker,her Marseille guide book for guests is the best personal guide book what I 'd ever seen.
    Also,Yolande is a very welcoming person, and a good cooker,I like her Pasta cooking style!

    October 2012
  • Yolande is a very kind and heartwarming person. I spend one week in Marseille and she and her wonderful cat Shabby were two reasons that my soul and I found some rest and had an inspiring time.

    The bedroom has a Kingsize Bed and Yolande gives you some space in the closet.
    The flat is based in the citycentre and you have easily access to busses and the metro. If you want, you can walk to vieux port or other central spaces in Marseille. There are very nice routes through the small streets of Marseille.

    The area castellane is very save and you can go out whenever you want.

    Yolande has a very nice terrace with a table and two chairs where I had my breakfast every morning:)
