Funky Chic Medina in Marseilles

Au Vieux Panier

Six artists.  Six rooms.  One house.  In the heart of the historical Le Panier district of Marseille lies Au Vieux Panier, a Maison d’Hôtes of six unique rooms.  What differentiates this boutique hotel from others is that each room is designed by artists, graphic designers, and painters representing various styles, locales, & genres. Housed in a 17th century building that once served as a Corsican bakery, this hotel marries historic and modern.  From the rooftop terrace, guests can enjoy an afternoon cocktail while taking in panoramic views of the old city center across to the harbor.  Stylishly decorated with art installations throughout, staying in this hotel is a unique experience indeed.
