We loved the contemporary art that featured on the walls of this old building, including the clever way the walls themselves became the work of art. The room was spacious with a large bathroom, but if you are a very short person, you might struggle with the height of the loo and the fact that the sink is set back into its tiled surround so it is hard to put your head over it to do your teeth. My tall husband found it perfect!
The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was a well presented buffet in an interior room which could have felt claustraphobic, but the ceilings were very high so it didn't.
The location is great for all the activity in the main square, but it is just a very short stroll before you are in the maze of small old streets surrounded by cafes and bistros and a vibrant city night life.
The station is only a 5 minute walk away, so very handy for onward travel.
There are colourful trams if you want to go further afield, and plenty of very grand new buildings enclosing courtyards and avenues with fountains and plane trees to cool you down. Montpellier has the feel of a growing and lively city, and the two halves of the centre - the old and the new, are reflected in the New Hotel du Midi and it's charming and delightfully odd aesthetic.
