“Wonderful B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2012

It was a pitty that we can only spend one night in Montpellier, a quiet southern France small city that worth a visit. But we are glad that we stayed in this B&B at least so that the only night stayed in Montpellier is unforgetable. The owner, Alexandre, has excellent taste in making the chamber a cozy and amazing place to stay and we really found the stay interesting and full of fun.

I just spent 3 nights in the suite and it is like having your own apartment in the center of Montpellier. You can walk everywhere and you are perfectly situated in town, the apartment is spotless and dead quiet, very comfortable, and Alexandre is available if you need anything. It is an upscale place to stay in and an interresting alternative vs. a boring hotel room. You have your own kitchen that is equipped, a fridge, computer, televsion, etc. And it is absolutely silent, great for catching up on sleep.

The owner of this wonderful apartment in the heart of Montpellier, Alexandre, has excellent taste in guiding you to local restaurants, places to visit, short trips to take by train, etc. And his apartment is lovely. He stocks the refrigerator with juice, and butter and jams. He walks you past the bakery to shop at in the mornings, stocks the kitchen with coffee, and the place even has a clothes washer and dryer. There is even wi-fi. The bed is comfortable for a good nights sleep, and the shower has great pressure. I spent a week here, but could have moved in and stayed forever. My boyfriend could only stay the first two nights before traveling abroad for work, but the place is charming. Alexandre is only a phone call away and is a host who really cares that you have a great visit. Bravo.

We were due to stay at this B&B but, unfortunately, there was a problem with our booking when we arrived. However, Alexandre was more than helpful and found us a stunning alternative (see my other reviews) and for that we thank him. I have no doubt that you would have a great stay with Alexandre.

We booked this property after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. I was expecting a different look and feel, which was the case. However the location is noisy at night and in the morning, which is OK for people that work, not so much for vacationers like us. I had asked if the bathroom was private, and it is not as you need to walk out of your room to get to it. Getting there by car was a nightmare! After our GPS took us through a pedestrian area (yes, it did!), we parked at a distance and walked our way to the location (we actually did not even have the correct address for the property). Breakfast was minimal, certainly not what North Americans expect. All of this leads me to conclude that the room was over-rated and over-priced.

Room Tip: OK if you are there on business, not for vacation. And don't drive!!!

I've really enjoyed my stay at the Suite du Merle Blanc. I came to Montpellier for business reasons and luckily I could spend one week like being in my own apartment. Coming back from the office I somehow felt home. I didn't have to go out every evening for dinner since i could cook something and have my meal being happily relaxed on the huge sofa!!
However when i felt like going out it was perfect since I was already in the heart of Montpellier enjoying the nice atmosphere of this lovely city.

We stayed with Alexandre for a weekend break. He helped us book a popular restaurant in advance and park the car and generally looked after us very well. We felt at home in his beautiful bizarre of a home - part Dr Dolittle, part Dr Parnassus. The flat is walking distance from the central squares of Montpellier's old town but far enough from the touristy bits around Place de la Comedie to feel off the beaten track.
