“GOOD VALUE - NOT SO NEAR THE AIRPORT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

I stayed in this hotel because the Aeroport Hotel was full. I had to work at the airport so I chose to stay as close as possible.
Here are my comments:

1/ Hotel is clean but looks a bit run down
2/Staff are efficient and speak English
3/ Superior Rooms are fine
4/Bathroom and shower are clean and work well
5/ Please note that the Airport is NOT within a walking distance and there is NO SHUTTLE to or from the airport
6/ If you need to be near the airport choose Aeroport Hotel.
7/ the hotel has no restaurant (pizza place and KFC next door)
8/Parking is in front of Hotel
9/ no Gym no Pool (unlike the Aeroport Hotel)
Overall my stay was good.

Service, breakfast, cleanliness and helpfulness of staff all top notch. Well done. Tram line number 3 is still having a few teething problems and maybe not as regular into town as one would hope, but it really is only a 2 minute walk to tram station!

Situated at major road junction alongside a small pizzeria, a KFC and a boulangerie (ideal for breakfast). It isn't pretty on the outside and the interior is showing signs of wear and tear. Part of a 'basic' chain, much better than a Travelodge but still basic.

For:
Only 2 miles to airport -great for early flights
Tramway system to Montpellier right outside

Against:
Dining options limited to those previously mentioned and supermarket cafeteria across the road.

Tips:
1. Eat before you arrive
2. Eat breakfast next door 'French' style - standing up for speed (seats available outside)
3. Pre booked deals are good value €46 for superior(?) room

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back - didn't hear the trams or the traffic

Was disappointed with the distance of the hotel from the city centre, but to be fair I suppose this was in part our own fault for not doing our homework. There is a good bus link, but only till about 8pm.... Don't rely on the reception to give you the correct bus info tho, I think it very much depended who the staff member was, we were told the last bus was at 8pm, it was actually at about 7.50 so we missed it, whilst sitting outside the hotel another bus passed at about 8.20, which had we have known we could have caught.

As far as the actual hotel and it's facilities are concerned.... There was a foul smell as soon as you enter the reception, like a filthy mop had been used to clean, shame as I think the hotel was actually quite clean.

The room itself was fine, in fact the bed was very comfortable and the bedinen was crisp and clean (this was a superior room). We never tried the breakfast as there was a lovely patisserie next door.

The other issue we had with the location was the rip off taxis - the one from the airport was a set charge €15, a bit much really considering the proximity to the airport. The hotel booked us a taxi to go to the city at about 8.30pm, we were told this would be €25, alot but we wanted to go out, the driver wanted €35 on arrival.

I have to admit that we should have researched some of things better before going, it's not good to get ripped off and poorly informed on the 1st day of your holiday. If your not concerned about central location, this is not a bad place for a brief stopover, it just didn't really suit our needs.

I stayed here with my friend and were shocked when we saw the hotel! Actually its a motel on a duel carriageway in a KFC car park! This hotel is literally only for people who drive, you can not even hire a bicycle to cycle around the area. The buses stop running at 8pm there are no restaurants, bars or sources of entertainment in the area! Cabs into Montpellier itself cos at least 30 Euros.

The breakfast at the hotel is poor, and too expensive for what it offers. It is actually next door to a boulangerie so do not bother to pay for the hotel Breakfast which is just plastic flavour cheese, ham, tinned fruit salad, croissant and bread.

On the positive staff, Fabrice and Joquim were friendly and helpful
