Treat yourself to Marseille, a cultural and economic jewel of French majesty. Enjoy something truly unique, such as the Hotel Au Vieux Panier. Marseille may bring to mind the opulence of centuries past, diplomacy and international treaties. However, France is also the land of the contemporary and cutting edge. The Hotel Au Vieux Panier contrasts immaculate white walls with neon-bright, multi-colored graffiti taking inspiration from street art on subway walls. Pastel paint drips melt over gradients and harsh bold lines, right alongside bubble letters and scribblings. Some of the rooms are truly surreal, with the room neatly divided between blank white furnishings and graffiti, even across the middle of the floor or one shelf.
