Chose this hotel for being within walking distance from the train station. Is located in a quiet street. I was impressed at how organised and to the point the owner was. No small talk, no time wasting, but you still felt welcome and cared for. The room was satisfactory and had a pleasant scent, window had double-glazing, there was free... More

In our one nights experience - - carpets filthy & very old - no air con fan yes - showers so unclean we had to use flip flops -the bed covers were so un inviting that (like another reviewer) we slept on top of the beds - we landed...

Montpellier is not one of France's best cities to visit, there are creeps tugging your shoulder for money at every corner, they rip people off at supermarkets, half the town is in ruin during new tram rooadworks, and smokey restaurants have terrible food. This made Nova hotel the brightest spot of our Montpellier experience, the room was safe and decent,... More

We stayed for 2 nights We got great recommendations for sites and restaurants. And when our rented car dropped dead in front of the hotel, and we had to wait for 2 hours while blocking the entrance to the neighbors' parking, the hotel manager helped us deal with the angry french tenants. We had a great experience. Do note that... More

This is a modest hotel in a charming building with very friendly service. It was a budget choice but our room was quite large with two double beds and quiet despite the central location near the Opera. Don't expect modern plush anonymity but do expect systems that work and all the basics you need in a hotel. Our host was... More

I think it would be unfair to review this hotel as if it were 3 or 4 star. It is a two star hotel and as such was perfectly in line with what one might expect. I travelled on business, staying for four nights. The owner was endlessly helpful and pleasant. The room was clean, the bed comfortable (room 10).... More

On arrival the Hotel Nova is like a Dr Who time warp. The location is fantastic, just behind the Opera House and Comedy Square but the rather unassuming exterior hides a wonderful historical interior. The whole ambience of the hotel and the room I occupied (first floor corner with balcony) was of old world charm with modern facilities. 10 out... More

We stayed here in July - this place has no air con so it was nightmarishly hot - like an oven.

We stayed one night. Everything was very clean and our bathroom was brand new! We were treated like friends by the owner. We can't wait to visit again! Highly Recommended by all 5 of us. The owner gave me sugar cubes to bring back to the states and a pack of matches when my lighter failed. Thank you!

I stayed there for one night, the location was perfect, the hotel is close to the city center. The room was ok, the bathroom a little bit old but ok, they even left us a fan for the heat. Really friendly staff and excellent price!
