Baudon de Mauny was my first impression of Montpellier - and it was a great one! BdeM arranged a car service for me from the airport, which was a must since cars cannot access the old city. The car pulled up to this hôtel particular, which is nestled among the tiny streets of l'Écusson. A grand entrance welcomed, with the main Directoire-style glass door surrounded by a pebbled courtyard and side fountain, gleamed upon by a light fixture that's reminiscent of the Hermès calèche. Ancient stone stairs guide you up to reception, where you're transported into an 18th century-meets-Kartell-dinner party. I was so impressed by the design detail upon arrival, that I passed an hour with a cup of coffee in the main lounge admiring the perfect blend of transition -- blend Louis XVI to modern. By the time I had made it to my room, I had already taken many notes and pictures of the design elements! My room was equally as entertaining and perfect (including skype-friendly WIFI!). Everything was very well done, very welcoming, the service more-than-hospitable and the location beyond excellent! I absolutely loved BdM! However... The only minor flaw was that the breakfast was not of a 15€ calibre -- BdM would be better off placing espresso machines in the rooms and forgetting the faux-croissant breakfast. I would definitely return!
