“Quirky charm in an excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

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.

Excellent welcome from reception staff, very comfortable room (hallelujah, hotels have discovered nespresso machines at last) and an excellent restaurant next door. Breakfast simple but fresh and tasty. Would definitely go again

Lovely quiet airconditioned room. Nice staff. Clean bathroom. Excellent location. Beautiful and cool design.
Only setback - rather claustrophobic breakfastroom without window, but the staff there was very friendly and helpful.
The Place de la Comédie has a big problem with drug addicts/ street dwellers and their dogs, wich also affects the hotel entrance a bit due to its central location. But nevertheless, I would stay there anytime!

Dear Lena,

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry for the inconveniences you encountered Place de la Comedie. The City Hall is doing its best to improve the situation.

We hope to welcome you pretty soon at New Hotel du Midi or another hotel of the group.

An excellent place to stay in Montpellier. The hotel seems to be an old place, that had a bit of a rough time and was neglected, but has been thoroughly refreshed with quirky designs and colours. A really cool mix of new and old. Excellent bathroom, very comfy bed and perfectly clean.

If you don't want to or can't drive, this is your location. Right in the center. The room was small, but clean. We didn't try the breakfast because it was not recommended here. Internet worked for us all three days. We would come again.

Very nice hotel, central located, clean, nice staff.
Low side is room size and the incredible expensibe breakfast (for what it offers).
During the 4 days we stayed there Internet worked just 1 day. However staff offered us to use the guests computer.

Taking a three-night city break we wanted a hotel bang in the centre of the city - and we could not have chosen better. New Hotel du Midi is right on Place du Comedie and you are just a few steps from the very heart of Montpellier.
The lobby decor and the spectacular staircase are fabulous, retaining a feel of the historic nature of the hotel although the remainder has recently undergone a revamp.
Our third floor room was well appointed and large enough for us while the bathroom was very spacious. The shower fittings and cubicle looked a little tired but all in all we were very pleased.
As it was over 30C throughout our stay we were very grateful for the air conditioning and the cool - and quiet - room ensured we had three great nights' sleep.
Breakfast was ok; I can understand those who have made a point about the choice (no hot food) but for us who enjoy fruit, pastries and coffee to start our day it was fine.
Can thoroughly recommend the hotel, especially at the price we paid.
