This is a genuine two star, if only because the design and layout of the rooms is dumb! Our room (#114) was tiny, dominated by the king-size bed. You had to shuffle around its perimeter, and leaving the room, you had to carefully get in line to leave, there was so little room!
The bathroom design is really STUPID! First it's tiny, tiny, tiny; second it has a glass wall dividing it from the bedroom (so no privacy at all); and then there's no way to contain the overspray from the shower. The entire floor is awash after a shower. The hotel does not provide any hand towels, jus bath at and bath towels.
However, to balance these negative comments, the staff were wonderful, the breakfast very good and the onside parking is excellent, providing you book!
The attached restaurant offered good food, good service and good value - but how it makes a profit is beyond me! Most of the guests seemed keen to take the three minute walk to the centre and dine out.
Montpellier is a fabulous city. Beautifully restored and maintained, with great shopping and walks discovering the tiny medieval streets and back alleys. It's safe and friendly.
Put it on your must-visit list, but try and book at the Mercure.
