Extremely cool B&B Casa Honore in Marseilles

Well, I saw it and fell in love. Might this wonderful design hotel be my this summer’s secret destination? Why not? France – J’adore! Marselles – never been! Let’s plan a trip.Hidden behind a deceptively dull front door in the Vieux Port area, Casa Honore is an extremely hip option. Black, white or glass walls set the minimalist tone, but the rooms also have a few North African accessories, several green lamps strung from long wires around the bed, and contemporary art. Breakfast is in a beautiful black kitchen with French windows opening onto a balcony overlooking the pool. Quite a rarity in a city B&B, it’s in a courtyard filled with palms, bourgainvillea and banana trees.
