Emplacement idéal et très belle rénovation de ce couvent! Bravo à la propriétaire!
Séjourner dans un bâtiment historique, rénové et décoré avec beaucoup de goût. Le quartier est idéal pour découvrir Marseilles à pied, de nombreux bons restaurants sont tout proches. C'est à 20min à pied de la gare!
I would stay here again and again! The location is perfect. It’s close to the port and has a neighborhood feel. The apartment was amazing! Nearby bakery, bars, restaurants, grocery made me feel like a local. I had everything I needed. I’m so happy to have stumbled upon this rental amid the myriad of other options. Nespresso machine and coffee/tea. Kitchen with everything I needed if I chose to dine in. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful!
I am in good fitness, however, some people may not want to climb a couple of flights of stairs to their room. For me, this was not a burden. I actually really liked the wide stairway and steps, but the elderly and less ambulatory may not. That is the only negative I can expect another person having. Again, it was absolutely not a negative for me.
I had a great stay. I think I actually got a better room than the one I paid for. My flight was late and I arrived much later than agreed, the host waited for me and was very nice. The place is ideally located, quiet and clean. Room nicely furnished, great kitchen with tea and coffee. Super comfy bed, good wifi. Cleaning was offered as I was staying 7 nights. I loved the small library inside. Le Couvent was really a home away from home for me. I absolutely recommend this place.
A wonderful place to stay if you’re travelling light.
The owner Inés was charming and informative.
Access from the street is very poor. Better to arrive by taxi as tricky to park. Also don’t take heavy luggage, as there are steps to the property and no lift inside the property.
Ottima posizione in una zona stupenda di Marsiglia. L’appartamento era magnifico, arredato con gusto, pulito, spazioso e comodo. Host gentilissima e disponibile, ci ha fornito utili consigli. Per me non ci sono aspetti negativi ma è utile avvisare che ci sono un po’ di scale da fare per raggiungere la struttura e gli appartamenti. Nulla di particolarmente faticoso.
C’était un séjour parfait et relaxant.
Le décor de bon goût des appartements, l’emplacement idéal de l’hébergement et bien sûr Ines comme une excellente hôtesse, qui nous a accueillis chaleureusement. La remise des clés simple et le check-out simple, dans l’ensemble un séjour réussi.
Wonderful location, edge of Panier neighborhood, just above the port, walking distance to museumon a quiet street, a beautiful complete fashionable renovation of a grand-seeming convent with a lovely large staircase and beautiful immaculate rooms, with carefully chosen decor and all details excellent, with high-end kitchen set-up, large windows, very quiet and solid building… the photos don’t do it justice.
All great… slight caution: a cab cannot get right to the front door due to pedestrian street.
Nous avons aimé l’accueil chaleureux et l’emplacement. Nous avions un appartement calme et la kitchenette était très bien équipée. Il y avait du thé et du café. Bien que la maison est située sur une voie de montée raide, mais au début de la voie. C’est aussi très rapide au port et au métro. De ce quartier, vous pouvez explorer la région dans toutes les directions. Surtout le vieux quartier.
Appartement exclusif et luxueux.
Monastère merveilleusement transformé avec beaucoup de goût, chambre et salon spacieux, lit king size très confortable, petite cuisine bien aménagée, machine Nespresso avec capsules en nombre, excellente situation, bref nous reviendrons dans cet endroit hors du commun et exclusif.
Excellent! Marseille ist einfach großartig!
Die super Lage der Wohnung 300 m vom Vieux Port, mitten im tollen Le Panier mit all seinen Restaurants und kleinen Geschäften. Des Weiteren die schöne Wohnung im Couvent, gut ausgestattet und sehr offen gestaltet. Sehr modern. Eine sehr nette Vermietern, die einfache Wohnungsübergabe und die wertvollen Tipps. Diese Tipps haben den Aufenthalt nochmal angenehmer gestaltet. Prima Parkmöglichkeit im Parkhaus 200 m von der Wohnung entfernt.
“Excellent! Marseille est génial!
L’emplacement idéal de l’appartement à 300 m du Vieux Port, au milieu Panier avec tous ses restaurants et petits magasins. De plus, le bel appartement du Couvent, bien équipé et très ouvert. Très moderne Un très bon propriétaires, le transfert simple et les précieux conseils. Ces conseils ont rendu le séjour encore plus agréable. Grand parking dans le garage à 200 mètres de l’appartement.”
« What a beautiful, stylish & comfortable apartment! We loved our brief 2 night stay at Ines’s luxurious apartment & the area was fantastic for exploring the old port and further into town. Heaps of great eateries nearby and so much to see and do in the neighbourhood. The apartment itself was gorgeous with a very comfortable bed, great shower and a big sofa to stretch out on after all our exploring. Ines had provided a really helpful info sheet and was great to deal with both before our stay and when we met. We particularly appreciated the nice quality liquid soaps & body wash provided. We would thoroughly recommend staying here. »
« Appartement idéalement situé pour profiter de Marseille à pied. A deux pas de la Major, du Mucem et du Vieux Port, à l’entrée d’un petit quartier charmant, et pour autant, d’un calme PARFAIT. Déco agréable, propreté parfaite, literie très confortable : nous recommandons sans hésiter “
Magnifique hébergement près du Vieux Port
Schöne Unterkunft am ”Alten Hafen”
Das komplette Interieur war sehr gemütlich, zudem sorgte die große Duschkabine mit Regendusche für einen zusätzlichen Wohlfühlmoment. Ich kann diese Unterkunft nur empfehlen, da sie durch ihre Lage und die Ausstattung besticht.
Bon séjour à marseille : L’équipement dans l’appartement. La tranquilité du lieu. La situation géographique de l’hôtel. Le respect de l’hôte. La machine à café Nespresso. L’appartement très spacieux.
Il faisait très chaud à Marseille lors de notre séjour. Certaines nuits, nous avons eu de la difficulté à dormir malgré la présence d’un ventilateur. C’est notre seul commentaire négatif pour cet établissement. C’est la seule raison qui nous empêche de donner une note parfaite.
« Wow…absolutely gorgeous apartment. You can even see notre dame while showering. Easily the most comfortable Airbnb place we’ve ever stayed. She has everything you need including wonderful Marseilles soap/shampoo. Really a stunning place in Panier and minutes from Vieux Port. »
Nice location, in trendy Panier district and 3 minutes walk to the harbour. A lot of shops and cafes nearby. The apartment was really spacious, tastefully furnished and well equipped. Kitchen was new with all appliances needed and beautiful kitchenware. Nespresso coffee machine was accompanied by a plenty of capsules (tea bags were there, too). A very nice airy bathroom with windows and state-of-the-art shower. Large French windows in the bedroom and living area gave a lot of light and fresh air, so the absence of AC was not really noticed. We would recommend it with confidence.
Charming and spacious apartment in historical Marseilles
This property is an old foundry that has been restored and turned into a very charming hotel. It is a beautiful building a few yards away from the Vieux Port, in the heart of historical Marseilles. Very spacious and well-designed rooms. Very warm and welcoming host. I really enjoyed staying there! Highly recommended.
Idéal ! La situation géographique : tout près du Vieux port et du centre, dans le quartier charmant du Panier, et au calme absolu. Le charme du bâtiment aussi, ancien couvent restauré avec goût. Le confort et l’espace, la possibilité de prendre ses repas dans le studio. Un endroit idéal dans une ville où il n’est pas évident de trouver le calme.
C’est notre deuxième séjour chez Ines (au couvent). Situation idéale dans le quartier du panier proche Mucem, Port,etc… Restaurants et cafés très proches (place de Lenche). Nouveaux quartiers de la Joliette accessibles à pied. Appartement spacieux, décoré avec goût et très propre et fonctionnel. Très Calme. Internet fonctionne sans problème. Ines est très sympathique et a été très souple sur les horaires d’arrivée et de départ. C’est devenu notre hebergement favori à Marseille.
Logement conforme à nos attentes avec des prestations haut de gamme, la décoration, le mobilier sont choisis avec soin. Très calme (notre suite donnant sur un cour intérieure) et très bien situé près des restaurants et des boutiques de la place de Lenche et du Vieux Port pour prendre un petit déjeuner en terrasse. Nous avons toujours trouvé à nous garer à proximité.
Idéalement situé, calme, quartier très pittoresque, gare proche, métro tout près, excursions bateau etc… tout est à portée de main nous n’avons pas eu besoin de louer un véhicule la semaine (un scooter une journée pour faire Cassis et les calanques côté terre) de bons restos boulanger épicier en bas de l’appartement très agréable séjour. heureux du séjour
L’appartement est magnifique, grand, moderne et fonctionnel, dans un couvent restauré. La rue, calme, est au coeur d’un quartier plein de vie, de bons restaurants (et glaciers !), dont Ines nous a donné les adresses. Tout peut se faire à pied car l’appartement est idéalement situé, juste à côté du vieux port et du Mucem. Parfait pour notre première visite à Marseille. Ines, qui s’est montrée très disponible, nous a chaleureusement accueilli. Merci pour ce séjour !
Wonderfully appointed flat in the heart of the best neighborhood in Marseille. Ines was flexible with our arrival after a delayed train, which we appreciated. Flat was beautifully restored, coffee and tea provided, maps and restaurant recommendations, lovely decor and atmosphere. Highly recommend!
We enjoyed our recent stay at Ines’ apartment in Marseille. The space was beautiful and clean and the location made it easy to get around to what we had hoped to visit while visiting. Since it is quite warm in Marseille in July, the air conditioning on the second level in the sleeping area made for a very comfortable night’s sleep. Thank you, Ines, for a great stay!
Our spacious apartment (no 3) at the Couvent was airy, sunlit and well furnished, swept by cool sea breezes during the day, quiet at night. Le Panier is definitely the right neighborhood to be in: great little cafes, hip bars, quaint alleyways and interesting workshops. It is very close to the Old Port, MuCEM, the renovated docks (Les Docks) and must-see architecture. It is a real neighborhood, not a tourist zone. Wish we’d spent a week at le Couvent instead of 3 days.
Inés was great in guiding us into the city, where to park and access the apartment. This is an excellent location, really close to the harbour and center of the city, within walking distance from most of the interesting things that we wanted to do in Marseille. Good restaurants are just around the corner (much better than restaurants at the harbour) and supermarket also within walking distance. Everything about the apartment was nice, clean, elegant and comfortable. We felt relaxed from the very first moment and had a great stay our four days in Marseille. Going back to Marseille, I would most certainly stay here again. Thanks Inés 🙂
Un lieu plein de grâces au cœur, certes de la ville, mais bénéficiant dans ses murs d’un silence magistral. L’accueil était professionnel et chaleureux, efficace, et s’est avéré disponible lorsque nous avons bêtement laissé la clef dans la serrure. Une aussi grande douche vous fait penser que vous êtes une reine ! Rien de mieux pour débuter chaque journée !
Awesome place to stay in Marseille! It was clean, well-furnished, large, and cozy all at the same time. The shower in the apartment is one of the largest showers I’ve ever seen! Check-in was easy and Ines was a great host. The apartment is also located right off the port, so it provides easy access to everything Marseille has to offer. Highly recommend staying here!
Ines was a great host. She communicated regularly and clearly beforehand. The apartment is superb with such a high quality finish which is also very stylish. Spotlessly clean, nice big shower, well appointed kitchen, light and airy room. Some nice touches with coffee machine (capsules supplied). I would not hesitate to recommend this place if you are staying in Marseille (I would definitely stay there again). The location is also excellent, in the Panier district, just around the corner from Place du Lench with its cafes and bars and only s few minutes walk to the Vieux Port.
This is a wonderful flat in a converted former convent, situated in a very quiet street in the Old Town of Marseille. Bright and airy, tastefully furnished. Close to the Old Port with its many restaurants and tourist attractions. The host was very kind and helpful. The mezzanine, where the bedroom is located, has low beams: tall people – mind your head! ;)) But otherwise, our stay was absolutely fabulous.
The hosts were brilliant and contacted me throughout to ensure a smooth check in. They went out of their way to pick up a parcel for me that came from London. This meant a huge deal to us as we were partly in Marseille to watch the Euro’s and we could not have done that without the tickets. The apartment was absoulutely beautiful. Very clean and very spacious. The building was gorgeous and convenient to the main port. The neibourhood was very queit. The apartment really gives you a feel of the town. There was a school behind us so waking up to children playing was a joy. definitely would recommend anyone to stay here again.
It was again a very very nice and pleasant stay in Le Couvent. The apartment was, as all the other ones, well furnished and very stylish. It is anything inside that you need. It is very quiet and relaxing. Ines is a very nice and friendly host. Checkin and checkout is very easy and uncomplicated. We enjoyed our stay in the accommodation very much.
Appartement superbe à deux pas du vieux port et au pied du quartier du Panier. La literie est juste parfaite (le soleil tombe parfaitement sur la tête de lit si vous ouvrez le vasistas le matin), le cadre hyper calme, la douche immense. Bref, je louerai à nouveau au Couvent, et sans aucune hésitation lors de mon prochain séjour.
This apartment is really amazing, light, and spacious. The design is unique and absolutely perfect! It’s very comfortable both for short and long stay. Apartment location is good to visit the main sights of Marseille, close to Saint-Charles train station, and variety of restaurants. Ines welcomed us and provided all needed information to make our stay more comfortable. It was a great pleasure to stay here, would highly recommend!
The apartment was really beautiful, and the little touches both in the apartment and in the building really made it a great place to stay. The central location in the old port, made it very easy to get around to the major attractions. Listen to Ines’s restaurant recommendations! The one time we didn’t, we ended up regretting it.
L’appartement est très agréable, lumineux et idéalement situé. Inès nous a accueilli gentiment et nous a permis de quitter les lieux tard le dimanche, ce qui nous a donné l’occasion de profiter pleinement de notre dernière journée. Nous reviendrions au Couvent sans hésiter !
What to say about ‘Le Couvent’? This airbnb doesn’t need any recommendation! Just have a look at the pictures and you’ll see that it is a very beautiful place. The old convent has been renovated and decorated by the owners with an eye for perfection and with all the comfort of today. But there is more to tell: Ines and her husband make you feel at home. Ines even welcomed us with some surprises for Christmas. We’ve stayed for eight nights and found it very difficult to leave!
Ines gave us a very warm welcome although we arrived very late in the night. We had a great, comfortable and well furnished apartment. Ines is a very kind host and we enjoyed our stay at Le Couvent very very much. It was our fourth stay there and I think it would not be the last stay at Le Couvent.
Séjour très agréable dans ce beau duplex aménagé avec goût, dans un couvent réhabilité, et disposant d’une excellente situation pour découvrir Marseille à pieds. L’accueil fut de qualité et Inès nous a recommandé de belles adresses gastronomiques. Le point de chute idéal pour un prochain passage à Marseille !
Ines and her husband were very kind when we met, he even carried one our bags up three flights of stairs as there is not a lift. Please note that that is not a slight on the apt….It is beautiful and clean and better than the pictures. We had an awesome time and the location is very nice, close to the port and museums, as well as bakeries and little market stores. Awesome space.
Inés graciously welcomed us to the apartment and gave us everything we needed for our stay. The apartment exceeded our expectations based on the listing and is an impressive, hotel-standard residence. The lavender smell permeating throughout the communal areas was refreshing and welcoming each time we arrived back after exploration.
Fantastic contemporary accommodation in the heart of the Panier district. Perfectly located for exploring the bars and restaurants situated in the surrounding bohemian streets, a stones throw away from the central Vieux Port. Our host Ines was extremely pleasant and helpful from first contact and was always quick to reply to our queries. Clear directions on how to find the accommodation (including instructions for taxi drivers) were emailed to us upon confirming our reservation. Upon arriving at the Couvent, Ines was waiting to welcome us and show us to our apartment which was immaculately clean and modern situated on the top attic floor. Some lovely vintage furniture items and the exposed timber roof trusses perfectly complemented the modern kitchen and bathroom areas. Ines showed us around the various features of the apartment and provided us a list of important contact details as well as her recommendations for local bars and restaurants. We had a fantastic time exploring this area of Marseille having previously stayed in another part of the City. Ines continued to be as helpful as possible when ever we had any queries throughout our stay and as it happens we opted to extend our stay in the apartment due to our pleasant experience. Check out was fuss free and Ines was kind enough to arrange a taxi for us to the train station as we had an early flight to catch. I would certainly recommend the Couvent to anyone traveling to Marseille, and look forward to return there ourselves in the future.
agosto 2015, Abbiamo passato una meravigliosa settimana a casa di Ines. il Couvent si trova in posizione ottima da cui raggiungere a piedi il Panier, il vieux port, il MUCEM. collegato molto comodamente anche con bus (fermata a 200 mt circa) e metro. l’appartamento è curatissimo e molto pulito e, cosa non scontata a Marsiglia, molto silenzioso.
What a fantastic first experience with AirBnb… Ines was so nice – we were late because of a train problem and she was so kind. The apartment was great! Unique, spacious, clean… And a great shower – best shower of anywhere we stayed in Europe. The location was perfect – three blocks from the harbor. We really can’t recommend it enough!!
We were late arriving and Ines was very patiently waiting for us. The flat was as described and lived up to the high quality we were hoping for. It was a very comfortable way to spend a week. We particularly like the freedom afforded by this type of accommodation. The old town area where the property is, was our favourite part of Marseille. The best place we eat was 20 m down the alley from the front door. It was so popular we only got to eat there once.
We had a wonderful stay at Le Couvent. The unit was very large, bigger than the pictures showed, and Ines was very welcoming and inviting. The location is excellent as well, very close to a number of good restaurants, and also close to a bus stop that took us wherever we needed to go.
