This is a beautiful venue in a good location in the heart of the city. Alain is a welcoming host with excellent suggestions for local must-see sites and restaurants. We liked the mix of modern decor you see with the history you feel in every room. I'd suggest arriving during the daylight hours--the place is hard to find at first. The breakfast is good and the presentation is quite decadent, but it's a tad overpriced. It's worth having it at least one morning for the convenience and for the experience of dining in the lovely living room. We didn't see any other guests while we were there, and Alain isn't always around, so don't expect this to feel like a hotel---it's definitely a more independent travel experience. The room was clean, bedding was very comfortable, bottled water was provided every day, and there are nice toiletries in the bathroom.
Montpellier is full of students, so be prepared for rowdy Friday/Saturday nights. I was kept awake both nights by the noise of drunk kids out on the streets, and one night we witnessed a girl getting knocked over and kicked in the head by a young guy outside of a club. People ran to help her right away, but it was upsetting. We were also almost hit by a car full of kids driving and spinning around the main square, which is closed to cars. It seemed like every street was full of drunk students those two nights. But other than that, Montpellier is a charming place to visit and a nice change of pace from Paris. Be sure to check out Spa de Beaulieu if you're looking for a great spa during your stay.
