Holiday Inn Express Montpellier - Odysseum
Ranked #19 of 93 Hotels in Montpellier
Reviewed 29 August 2012

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.

We staid for 1 night with our child. The hotel is brand new but has a weird smell allover. Staff is fine but not overly friendly. There is no pool yet! Room for 4 is actually double queen room, so be aware. They charge for overnight parking.
Otherwise good location nearby the aquarium.
Breakfast is ok, but not amazong. All in all a bit expensive for avg service.

We stayed one night as a stop off between Barcelona and Antibes

New hotel and after a muck up with Booking.com the hotel held our room for us - thanks - so we had high hopes.

Room was large enough and clean apart from some previous guest had spilt coffee all down the wall and stains still there.

Air con didn't seem to be working and we were offered another room - still didn't work! Well very small draft only. So stayed in first room and it eventually came on properly on 3-4 hours later thankfully.

Wifi and breakfast free, but parking not but at 8Euro a day it is worth it as its secure.

There also seemed to be a shortage of toilet roll as we had to ask for more as no spare in the room.

A walk across the road gets you to shops and many restaurants
