Hotel C2 is a 5-star hotel located 20 minutes walk from the beach. Featuring a grand piano, HOTEL C2, located in the Pierre Puget courtyard in Marseille, is a 19th-century private mansion converted into a hotel. It features the original marble and parquet floors, columns, bas-relief sculptures, frescoes and bronze banisters, whilst offering a minimalist, contemporary twist. It opened in April 2014.
The 20 rooms occupy five floors. On each landing, two armchairs by Rietvelt and chairs by Le Corbusier, Marcel Breuer, Frank Lloyd Wright and Charles Rennie Mackintosh recall the pioneer architects of the modernist movement born at the start of the 20th century, just a few dozen years after the building housing the C2 was constructed. The light and spacious rooms, almost all different, offer comfort and refinement while retaining a certain simplicity.
The decoration is tasteful and subdued, with wood and white Corian units of a reduced height that accentuates the rooms’ high ceilings. The mood is peaceful, yet warm: sections of brick wall, highly elaborate lighting and surprising carpeting designed by Guy Bargin and re-worked aerial views of Marseille that aptly replaces the C2 Hotel in its local and historical context.
Facilities include a spa with a relaxation room, indoor pool, a bar and meeting room. The hotel’s specially-chartered boat leaves from the Vieux Port, and is available with the beach package. Each month the hotel also hosts art and photographic exhibitions and performances.
