“Marseille’s uber-cool option, the five-star C2 was launched in 2014. Twenty luxurious, light-filled rooms spill over a 19th-century merchant family mansion typical of this portside quarter, each one decked out in exposed brick walls and designer furnishings. Some have a private hammam steam bath.”
“Serene 19th-century classicism meets modern designer cool in an elegant town house, transformed by Claire Fatosme and Christian Lefèvre (the “two Cs”) into a five-star boutique hotel cum art gallery, music bar and all-purpose chic hangout.”

Hotel C2 is housed in a magnificent late 19th-century townhouse in a highly central location, just off Marseille’s Cours Pierre Puget. The Old Port, the Basilica of Notre-Dame de la Garde, and the Abbey of Saint-Victor are all within a ten-minute walk of Hotel C2, which is ideal for both business and pleasure in Marseille. This five-star boutique hotel is housed in a traditional townhouse with an abundance of artwork and a warm and welcoming ambiance. C2 Hôtel is located in the Opéra neighborhood of central Marseille, close behind the Old Port, in a magnificent Haussmann-style edifice. Many of the historical features, such as frescoes and sculptures, have been preserved in this 19th-century mansion.
The apartments in the back, which face the patio and garden, are the most tranquil.
The garden has an exquisite subterranean spa with a whirlpool bath, a hammam, and an indoor swimming pool cut into the rock.
It has its own private beach on Île Gaby, as well as private boat tours from Anse de Malmousque.
The hotel serves a variety of high-quality breakfast and tea beverages and a selection of finger foods. Les Saveurs Mareseillaises, a delectable Sunday brunch, is offered all year in the lounge or on the sunny, private terrace.
There is a large cellar with over a hundred high-quality wines.
The ground-floor lounge bar is a beautiful, light-filled area with an interesting mix of old and new elements.
