We come to Montpellier in the summer for the Estival (Friday night wine and food street festival) and shopping. We always stay at the Hotel Nova. It's in a great location just behind the Comedie and surrounded by hip shopping streets and restaurants and we can walk from the train station. The owner is a nice helpful guy and he... More

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

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.

We stayed for 2 nights We got great recommendations for sites and restaurants.

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 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!
