Relax in a new three-star hotel combining comfort, design and new technologies. Ideally located in the centre of Marseilles, near the Préfecture, the Law Courts and the pedestrian area of Rue Paradis with its luxury boutiques. The hotel was selected to take part in a design competition based on its new decor. Located three metro stops from Saint Charles train station on Line 1, and 164 ft (50 m) from Estrangin Préfecture station. Located just a few minutes away from motorway exits, Hôtel Le M offers parking (subject to advance booking) and welcomes guests all year round in French, English, Italian and German. Russian is spoken upon request. Take advantage of free Wi-Fi access in the rooms and a free Internet hotspot in the lounge, or play billiards with friends before enjoying dinner at one of the many restaurants near the hotel. Discover Marseilles, its old port as well other charming areas (Notre Dame de la Garde, Vallon des Auffes, Les Calanques etc.). Marseilles, the European Capital of Culture in 2013 and the capital of the PACA region offers an international perspective (Palais du Pharo and a conference centre, 15 minutes away by foot) combining modernity and tradition, not to mention vineyards and local gastronomy.
