El edificio más vetusto en el que me haya alojado jamás, puerta a la calle que no tenia como cerrarse, picaporte ausente, pintura totalmente descascarada; un hall de entrada en pésimo estado; una luz en el hall de veras imposible de hallar sin una antorcha o instrucciones previas (me valió fuerte caida de noche > estadía sin paseo por motivo de rodilla y espalda doloridas). Pero también un depto del Novecento único, por cierto antiguo pero asimismo decorado con gusto y originalidad, y sin lugar a duda una vista increible sobre la ciudad en su conjunto: Canebière, Iglesia des Réformés, Bonne Mère... Así que: si el edificio, la seguridad obvia, la pintura descascarada y lo vetusto no es lo que les importa y que gustan de pisos de madera con motivos de marquetería, chimeneas de marmol del Novecento, decoración original y ambientes bien amplios con vista única a dos pasos del subte, tranvía y buses, ése será su lugar. De lo contrario y importar las apariencias... bueno ya sabrán.

Wow, you can't stay more central in Marseille! Michel & Odile's flat is really beautiful and lovely. It has a fantastic view over the city. There's nothing better than looking at Notre Dame while having breakfast! We'd love to come back.

The finest hotel will not delight us after our visit at Michel & Odile Lecour. Nothing will give the beauty of Marseille, the French custom, tastes like Provence, our stay in a charming apartment in Marseille. We enjoyed every single moment in France and your place was beyond our expectation. Thank you very much for your hospitality and friendliness. We would be very happy if you could come to Poland and we will enjoy showing you our country.
Kind regards Jarek and Renata
