Un logement très bien situé près du vieux port, idéalement situé pour visiter les endroits les plus attractifs de Marseille. L'appartement était très propre et calme, conforme aux photos publiées sur le site. Nous le recommandons sans hésiter comme lieu de base pour passer quelques jours à Marseille!
This apartment was great to stay in. Fantastic location!! Close to shopping, harbour and restaurants. Loved staying here and really enjoyed the ability to walk everywhere. Clean place, great amenities and true to photos!
Huai-Lin is an amazing host. She was incredible flexible and accommodating in response to the curveballs our trip included (see longer review below for details). Her apartment is a tranquil refuge in the middle of downtown Marseille. The location is ideal for exploring the city, but once you are inside it is peaceful and serene. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.
**read on for the full story**
We had a very unfortunate incident on our way to checking in: we stopped to meet friends for lunch in Aix en Provence on our way to Marseille. While we were at lunch, someone smashed the window of our rental car and stole our luggage (including passports and phone chargers). With our last bit of phone battery life, I messaged Huai-Lin through the Airbnb app to tell her what had happened and that we would not make our 2pm check in, as we had to go to the police station to file a report. She was very gracious, and offered to let us in to the apartment whenever we were able to make it to Marseille.
We finally arrived in Marseille around 4:30, and I managed to message Huai Lin to say we were on our way before my phone died. She promptly replied to say she would be there in 20mins. We found the address, and a few moments later she and her husband arrived to let us in. They listened to our whole story, and offered to help us figure out how to get to the airport to return the car (since it was no longer safe to leave it parked anywhere) and even offered to go with us to buy new phone chargers so that we could call the embassy about new passports.
As it turns out, the embassy is closed on weekends, and our flight home was scheduled for Monday at 1:15pm. We would have to show up at the embassy at 9am Monday morning and hope we could get new passports in time to make our flight. Cell phones are not allowed in the embassy, so once more I messaged Huai Lin to see if we might leave them at the apartment (even though check out was supposed to be at 11am) and have flexibility to get them later that afternoon if we missed our flight. She agreed, and also offered to let us stay another night if needed! She was the saving grace of this trip. Her apartment is a beautiful sanctuary in the middle of bustling Marseille city center. It is walking distance to all the attractions: the vieux port, the Mucem, shops, grocery stores, and the tourism office.
Le logement était conforme à la description et aux photos. Il est très très bien placé tout près du vieux port tout en étant au calme.
La literie est excellente et il est bien équipé, un bémol pour le lave vaisselle.
La décoration est agréable, il est lumineux.
This apartment is is a perfect location - maybe two minutes from the port. It is easy to reach, safe, and there are many restaurants around. The space is really huge with a living area, two bedrooms, and fully-equipped kitchen, and we loved the big, airy windows throughout the apartment. It would be a great size for a family, or even two couples. I am a stickler for cleanliness, so I have to say that it wasn’t especially clean. The bathroom and such were in good condition, but the floors could have used a sweeping, and everything deserved a little “wipe-down”. The apartment was very personal - filled with unique art, books, furniture pieces, but it also included tons of stuff stashed in every corner and closet - shoes, medicine, etc. which was a bit of a turn off. The bathroom was beautiful (large tub and nice vanity area) and overall we really enjoyed our experience.
Séjour superbe à Marseille dans cet appartement. Il est fidèle à l'annonce et très bien placé ! Merci beaucoup.
We stayed only one night with a last minute booking but I would definitely recommend Huai-Lin's place! It is a very nice flat, very clean and extremely well located. We clearly felt like home and could easily explore Marseille from that base.
Even though I did not meet Huai-Lin I have to say she was incredibly helpful and flexible with accommodations. The apartment is in a really great location, close to the old port, good food, and the metro.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Marseille, dans cet appartement très bien situé, parfait pour visiter la ville à pied.
