“Awful Aircon”
Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

Hotel is in a great location centrally and good value.
It may be a bit dated but clean.
Would have got a four rating but the air conditioning in our room (207) was useless not strong or cold enough to cool a room. We were awake most of the night due to the heat in between cold showers!
Also no fridge so you can't store any chilled drinks to cool down.

Stayed July 2012, traveled as a couple

Situated between the train station and the main square. A bit rough round the edges but overall clean, comfortable, and helpful staff.

The Royal Hotel is a great place to stay, especially if you are arriving by train as it is so close to the station. Its also very close to the main plaza Comedia and all of historic Montpellier. Clean, very good service, good beds and showers and the AC works very well. Excellent value.

The hotel is about 5 minutes away from the railway station and very easy to find by following the tram lines from the station towards the centre.
The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from the very cosmopolitan main square
The hotel has a 24 hour reception with very friendly English speaking staff
The hotel is very clean and well organised, we were allocated a room (100) on the first floor above the main entrance, the bed was comfy and the room was clean
The only negative is the rooms at the front of the hotel with the best views tend to get a slight noise frpm passing trams which run between 0600 & midnight, it could disturb you if you are a light sleeper, but overall i would definately stay here again if the price was right, i paid 200 euro's for a 2 night fri & sat night stayin June 2012, whilst in the city watching the Wigan Warriors rugby league side against the Catalan Dragons

Room Tip: Email the hotel a week prior to your arrival

We were staying overnight in Montpellier on our way to Carcassonne by train. I chose this hotel for it's proximity to the railway station. It is literally a 5 minute walk from the station and very close to lots of places to eat. The check in was quick and the staff very friendly. The room was enormous by french standards, had seperate toilet and bathroom. The decoration was not great, the carpet being a bit worn and ugly, but as a stopover hotel was perfectly adequate. We did not have breakfast in the hotel, there are lots of cafe's nearby which seemed better value.
