“terrible room - too hot”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

The hotel looks new, generic holiday inn style hotel, no character, but this is to be expected - i tis clean, and inexpensive. The problem is that the temperature in the sleeping room was very uncomfortable - the people at the front desk were not able to help. With the air conditioner set on the coldest setting, it was still very warm. The windows do not open in this hotel.

Location: The hotel is located near the aquarium and a large strip mall. It is about 20 minutes by aboveground rail into downtown. So, not very ideal location.

The breakfast was ok. Not much else to report.

Room Tip: Don't stay at this hotel

This hotel is of a good standard, clean rooms with excellent shower facility. Swimming pool was popular.

The breakfast was fine and the staff friendly.

The best point is the location being just across the road from the Odysseum which has many restaurants, cafes, shops and the tram service which can take you right into town. Bus service also available.

Compared with the usual Holiday Inn Express this is a cut above.

What it does lack in the rooms is a fridge - even a mini fridge would be a great asset as there is a supermarket in the Odysseum and this would save having to purchase there daily if you don't want to eat out every night or for lunch.

There appears to be further development to come nearby with a Carrefour on the way.

The immediate vicinity of the hotel is not that appealing but there is parking both in the secure car park and outside which is essential. Secure parking requires payment.

Room Tip: Pick your times to go to breakfast, there is the early rush and the late rush - aim in the middle.

Situated on the outskirts of Montpellier, convenient for main road routes, tram service into central Montpellier, and also Montpellier airport.
Recently opened (early 2012) so still very clean and modern. Good quality, but not 4 star.

Basic food and bar services, but there are plenty of restaurants in the nearby retail park.

We had a three nights' stay at this hotel which was opened in March 2012. The hotel is next to the motorway and to the Odysseum shopping centre where you can also find a lot of restaurants. The surroundings of the hotel don't look nice at all. The street in front ot the hotel is still under construction and there is waste everywhere.The lady at the reception was very friendly and helpful. Our room was okay but it didn't have a wardrobe, but only a small clothes rail with some hangers. There were no minibar and no room safe. The window couldn't be opened. Normally I don't like this at all but those days it wasn't a problem. It didn't make any sense to open the window because it was very hot and muggy outside. Our bathroom had a large shower cabin and everything still looked new. The breakfast which is complimentary was okay but the breakfast room looks like a canteen: There is also a small pool in the garden. The hotel is most suitable for a short stopover.

A new, clean and quiet hotel in a great location. We got a taxi from Montpellier train station to the hotel for about 12 euros. The room was great with everything we needed. (Note - no fridge) Breakfast was a simple self service buffet. Try to get there early as around 9am it got very busy and finding a table was very hard! The pool area is obviously new. Plants have just been planted and the area is yet to be painted but the pool is clean. There was a distinct lack of sun loungers - 12 for the whole pool! I'm not too sure who decided to create a large gravelled area by the pool either!?!? Random. All the hotel staff were friendly and helpful.
Across the road is a retail park with tram station, supermarket, shopping mall and even ikea! The tram costs 1.40 euros for a single or 2.50 euros for a return journey. It took around 10 minutes to get to the centre.
In my opinion, this was a great hotel for a mini break in the sun!

Stayed for one night on a business trip

The hotel is modern and new and only a couple of minutes walk to the tram which takes you into the centre of Montpellier for about €2.50

Staff were pleasant upon arrival and helpful; although I did ask for an ironing board upon arrival and unfortunately never got delivered

The room itself was a fair size with modern facilities ie shower/TV etc and the staff gave you your own personal Wifi information upon arrival which proved helpful to catch up on emails etc

Breakfast was standard continental fair with limited choice and was exceptionally busy at 6.30am !!

Overall, neither good nor bad and would stay here again if needed to

The hotel is bright, modern and new, a 3 minute walk to the tram line which takes you into the centre of Montpellier. There is convenient onsite parking for 5 euros a day. The staff on reception were great and gave lots of helpful advice, especially the young man (who was actually a trainee), who was so personable and polite. The room itself was perfect, a good size, perfect temperature (a/c), and a lovely big shower and modern bathroom. If you are looking for comfort and top customer service, you won't be disappointed. Would definitely stay there again.
