Fabulous place, perfect location
The simple review would just be to say it is perfect, but more information is always better. First, the location is perfect. Quiet street. Within 200 yards you have the old port, subways, trams, and about 150 outdoor cafes. Easy walk to anywhere you want to go. Second, although the photos of the apartment are accurate, they don't really give you the feel of the great space. From kitchen to eating space to couch and living area to front windows is huge, and just makes the whole place feel good. There were different places to work, so my wife and I could both work without even having to see each other. A spare bedroom for visitors.
An especially friendly aspect of the apartment was that it was overstocked with everything. We were there for a month and couldn't have run out of toilet paper, laundry soap, dish soap, sheets, towels, if we had tried. I'm a laundry fanatic and although there was no dryer, I adjusted well to hanging clothes out the window to dry. I might have had trouble with sheets, but there were so many sets of clean sheets that I could change them every week without having to figure out how to clean them.
I could have stayed in the apartment indefinitely. It was just that comfortable. Did I mention the huge bathroom? With lots of counter space? Did I mention the unlimited hot water? The apartment has an oversized hot water heater. Nice. Big lovable bathtub. Shower by hand, but since there was plenty of hot water, not a problem.
If I am ever so lucky to get back to Marseille (equally nice things to say about Marseille), I would want to stay in this apartment again.
There are some idiosyncrasies that should be mentioned. None of these bothered us. There was no TV, and the apartment is up 4 flights of stairs, again, this was fine with us. We are used to a stronger Wifi signal at home, but the wifi worked out for us, especially after they came and installed a Wifi extender so the signal was better in the (very nice) bedroom.
Enough. I'm home. I like my home. But I miss my Marseille apartment! Steve

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks very much.The flights of stairs were a little punishing but that aside it was excellent. The property was very good and very well situated in the most vibrant part of the city with easy access to the main sites/places of interest.
Perfect location, quaint place, nice and attentive owners.
Enjoyed the apartment itself but did not like the flights of stairs getting there. Had a super great collection of CD'S, but CD player old and broke, too bad. Quirky place, very fun!
Charming apartment in central port area
A well organized and comfortable apartment with two bedrooms separate from each other. The four flights of stairs were only a problem with my heavy suitcase.
