Location of the hotel is very good-the old town center, but all other things made us disappointed. First of all, the room had a strong specific smell of dampness, the furniture was old and in bad condition-creaking doors and dust on the surfaces. The place itself is quiet noisy at night because of the drunk people which are usually wandering nearby after night parties in the old town center-room window on the street side, no soundproof window glass.The main strange thing for a hotel of this category was that Wi-Fi was not working! Moreover, we have asked reception guys about the status of solving this problem, but they looked very indifferent not even tried to apologize for a such inconvenience.
Firstly do not drive to this hotel. It is located down a flight of steps in an alley without vehicle access. The nearest car park is approx. 300 meters away. That said the hotel was very nice, it is in two separate but adjacent buildings. Our room was very nice with a great view of the cathedral over the trees. The area around the hotel is very nice too, with great architecture and formal gardens close by. The Place de la Comodie is only 15 mins walk away. The stand out feature for us was a lovely breakfast served on the sun terrace each morning. Wonderful.
We stayed here about 10 years ago & returning the Hotel seems to of improved . Staff friendly...rooms a joy to stay in.. lovely view of the church spire & the restaurant next door....clean.....& a fridge in the room ......
We have spent 2 nights at this nice hotel located at the heart of old Montpellier. The hotel is made of two old typical French buildings.It was nice to know that the entrance to our section was once the butcher's shop. Room very clean but not a big one. Staff very polite and ready to assist in any reasonable case. Breakfast rich and tasty. No knowledge about WIFI. There is nearby a parking lot with reduced prices/
Very good location. Nice size room. People at the front desk and at the bar were very nice and helpful. Bathroom was clean and confortable bed. Just one negative point, the bathtub was not draining properly. Otherwise it was perfect. We'll return to this hotel if we go back to Montpellier
Great Hotel in quiet street near the Arc De Triumph. Difficult to find. Park in the parking lot near the Arc de Triumph - walk down the street across the road from the parking lot. It is located a block over. It is quite a lovely old building and if you are lucky you might get a view of the church from your room. It is centrally located to the city and can walk right downtown to everything in the old city.
This hotel near the Arc de Triomphe in the Historic part of Montpellier is a comfortable quaint place to stay. It lies in a narrow street where Rousseau is said to have lived for a year. Because the hotel is not purpose built but a conversion of old buildings it has some quirks. The bed rooms are of jaded classic heavy french style. Yet the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms clean and functional. If you like church bells disturbing your repose you will enjoy this hotel as it lies close to the Cathedral St Pierre. Breakfast was good, yet the breakfast room is rather cramped with uncomfortable garden furniture on an partly enclosed terrace. The restaurant next door has an extensive terrace running behind the hotel which could be disturbing to residents of the hotel in the summer when in full active use. However out of season this was a pleasant stay with easy access to the centre of Montpellier with all its restaurants, bars, and shopping. Wi-Fi is available but access is erratic.
We really liked this hotel. It's located in an old building in the Old town of Montpellier, and it has lots of charm. It's nice and clea and, the staff is great (and speaks great english!). The only downside is that the Wifi signal was weak, and we had some problems with Internet access. But yes, we will be back next time in Montpellier
Staff at this hotel were helpful, although we did have a bit of a language problem as we speak virtually no French. The location was excellent close to restaurants & points of interest. The room was very small & the bed not particularly comfortable. The bathroom was also tiny, but adequate. There are two main problems with the building. One is that the lifts are so small that we could not both fit into one with our luggage. This meant that one of us had to use the stairs, which leads us to problem number two. They are spiral & extremely steep & narrow so anyone with a disability would find using them pretty much impossible. If you are a fit & active person, you would have no trouble at all.
We stayed three nights at this hotel and although we were quiet comfortable in our room we felt the rooms and decor was dated and in need of a revamp! The bathroom and separate room toilet had been modernised recently, but the main room was a loud yellow with red velvet cushions, not sure from what era! The bed was comfortable and the room clean. The hotel is split between two buildings, a maze of corridors and steps leading to the dining area and reception. The breakfast is simple and perhaps a little too expensive for what is offered. There are no room safes but a bizarre "valuables in an envelope sealed with sticking tape" at reception, we felt very awkward with this system, especially when the receptionist didn't know how to open the safe! The hotel is in a great quiet location, close to public transport (trams) and a variety of eateries and bars. If we were to return to Montpellier I would look for a hotel with a little more pizazz.
