Gare De Marseille Saint-charles - Review
In 1948, this station used to receive visitors from all over Europe who wished to make sea journeys to Africa and the Middle East. There are various attractions in the station like 2 sculptures of a lion and child, the bows of a ship that indicate the marine route of Marseille and its destination cities and also bronze statues of the main produce of Marseille. Also check out the monumental staircase leading up to the station. The architecture of the staircase is brilliant beyond words. The great terrace in front of the station can be quite eventful, with tango or music performances being held regularly. Square Narvik next to the platforms has a similar appeal, with open air concerts and theatrical shows.

Gare De Marseille Saint-charles, Marseille Reviews
The building and its landmark are so beautiful with city view. Station Staff was very kind. There are all kinds of shops including cafes. But no escalators or elevators between platforms so I was about to have tough time with two luggage to transfer trains. Luckily a great staff helped me with carrying my big luggage to my next train. Its location is very convenient. You can get to the port, cafe and shop area 10 to 15 minutes by walking.
This station is terrible. #1. The ticket machines refuse my bank card, don’t take notes and are difficult to operate #2. The shops only sell Evian bottled water for 1.9 EUR. Water is essential to life. Do they really have to include water into their money making schemes? (A standard price for small bottled water is 0.5 EUR)
As French stations go it’s functional at best. Noisy, not that clean and always crowded with what appear to be people going nowhere. Significant homelessness and issues with drunks and druggies unfortunately - but then again it seems to be rampant across Marseille (whereas nearby towns have cleaned themselves up - Nimes, Aix & Montpellier in particular)... Marseille is on par with its railway station... dirty, full of graffiti everywhere and so many homeless and drunks/druggies laying around (even outside the 5 star IHG!) making the area feel unloved and dangerous especially at night. Not great at all.
You have a mcdonalds and a lot of relay stores. Next to the gar you have a nice view of the city.
Nice place. There you could feel the smell of the good old Europe.
