Aparthotel Le Couvent, Marseille
“Marseille’s most discreet hotel might be Le Couvent. Occupying an unmarked 17th-century stone building, the sprawling mansion-like space has no restaurant, spa or other amenities — just 10 stylish contemporary apartments outfitted with vintage pieces, art and books.”

All you need to know
In the heart of Marseille’s historic district, a renovated seventeenth-century convent opens its doors to temporary visitors to Marseille just behind the Old Port, alongside the Place de Lenche, near the Museum of La Vieille Charité. Le Couvent Marseille is located in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur area, close to the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations and the Les Terrasses du Port Shopping Centre. The aparthotel is 2.2 kilometres from Fausse Monnaie and 2.3 kilometres from Plage de Maldorme. Marseille Provence Airport is 26 kilometers away from the hotel.
The structure of the building dates back to the seventeenth century and was once a royal foundry before being taken over by the Jesuits. It is a former convent and reappeared in the city of Marseille’s heritage following the French Revolution. Nowadays, the hotel owners are deciding to open the convent to guests for insight into the heritage after several years of hard effort.
The convent currently has fully equipped apartments following a complete makeover. The beautifully planned, furnished and decorated nine luxury apartments make it an amazing place to stay for tourists. A fully furnished kitchen with a microwave, a dining space, a flat-screen TV, a washing machine, and a private bathroom with a shower and hairdryer are included in each unit. Moreover, the hotel has the best places in Marseille nearby. You may dine in one of Marseille’s best restaurants or go to the creeks, the Château d’If, or the Pointe Rouge Metro beaches.
