On arrival the Hotel Nova is like a Dr Who time warp. The location is fantastic, just behind the Opera House and Comedy Square but the rather unassuming exterior hides a wonderful historical interior. The whole ambience of the hotel and the room I occupied (first floor corner with balcony) was of old world charm with modern facilities. 10 out of 10 for this; but for those who have a room at the top, with heavy luggage, the spiral staircase may be a challenge but it is well worth it. Compared with others, Hotel Nova provides real value for money and service. The owners are always on hand. Every time I arrived back at the hotel I was greeted with a friendly welcome. An electronic pass card is provided for night time returns. My room had pleasant fitments and the bed was comfortable. The small bathroom also had a bidet. The free WiFi had a good connection. The downside was, being an old building which has to comply with historical requirements, my room had no A/C. Given the month of October, this was not any problem but even with the balcony windows closed at night the noise and disturbance outside, throughout the night, meant that a good night's sleep was impossible. This was extremely disappointing as the owners are really friendly and the hotel is a great place. Maybe the rooms higher up might be quieter but the night time noise would give Spain's Benidorm a run for the prize - it went on one night until 6am. Whilst not continuous its unpredictability meant one could never be assured of a tranquil period. It is just not something a tourist would expect in Montpellier city centre, is it?
