I live in Montpellier, and booked a room in this hotel for my parents when they came to visit me. They were here over Christmas, so the staff was reduced and not many people were here, but the service was still great. The man and woman working there didn't speak very much English, and my parents speak no French so I was in charge of communication; I would recommend knowing at least basic French if you stay here, although my parents managed to order breakfast without me.
The room was small, but clean, and was nicely painted. There were fresh flowers in the room, even in December, and the owner would ask me each day if they were wilted at all and if she should replace them.
The location is wonderful, right next to a rose garden and up the street from the cathedral St. Pierre. It is at the top of a hill and a bit of a walk from the closest tram stop (Albert 1ere) and Place de la Comedie with luggage. The hotel offered free wi-fi and a rather large, albeit expensive, breakfast.
The service was absolutely exceptional, and the owner was very friendly, often chattering to my parents although they couldn't understand a word she said. I loved how it was tucked away from busy streets, but the walk up hill was difficult, so I would recommend a taxi to and from the train station.
