Where to stay in MARSEILLE?

As France’s second largest city, Marseille offers a wide range of accommodation options to suit all tastes and budgets. Whether you’re looking for a luxury hotel overlooking the Old Port, a cosy Airbnb apartment in the Quartier du Panier, or a budget hotel near the stadium, you’re sure to find something to suit you. Here are a few suggestions on where to stay in Marseille during the Rugby World Cup.


Marseille has an impressive range of hotels, from luxury establishments to more affordable hotels. The Vieux-Port district is a popular choice, with hotels such as the InterContinental Marseille – Hôtel Dieu and the Radisson Blu Hotel offering spectacular views of the port.

If you want to be close to the Stade Vélodrome, where Rugby World Cup matches will be played, consider hotels like the AC Hotel by Marriott Marseille Prado Velodrome or the Hôtel Mercure Marseille Centre Prado Vélodrome. Both are within walking distance of the stadium.

Rental apartments and Airbnb

For those who prefer more personalized accommodation, Marseille offers a vast selection of rental apartments. Services like Airbnb allow you to rent entire apartments or individual rooms in the city. This can be a great option if you’re planning a longer stay or traveling in a group.

Youth hostels

For travelers on a budget, Marseille offers several quality youth hostels. Establishments such as Vertigo Vieux-Port and Gastama – The People Hostel are highly rated and offer an excellent opportunity to meet other travelers.


If you’re a camping enthusiast, there are a few campsites in the Marseille area. However, they are generally some distance from the city center, so it’s advisable to have a vehicle or find out about the public transport options available.

It’s important to note that Marseille is a very popular city with tourists, and that the Rugby World Cup will attract a large number of visitors. We therefore strongly recommend that you book your accommodation as early as possible to guarantee your stay.
