“Great stay”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Stayed here for a week in June. Not like a US Holiday Inn Express for sure....they had a bar, albeit expensive. Parking was free, which is odd for Europe. Many great places to eat nearby, as well as a local train.

The family room I booked slept four comfortably. The room was spacious and very clean.the security was very good and I loved the mini kitchen. The bathroom was of a high standard and the staff was very polite and able to help on all matters. Breakfast was simple and catered for all my family. I would stay here again.

Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of July. Our "long stay" room had a kitchenette, which had a fridge and a microwave, kettle and a sink. It did not have any plates, cups, glasses or cutlery. We were only given two paper cups for coffee or tea, and two plastic cups in the bathroom. So unless you have buy a ready meal and bring your own cutlery, thenthe kitchenette is only good for keeping your drinks cold.
There is no safe in the rooms either which was a bit of a worry for us.
The staff in the hotel reception were fantastic though. Nothing was too much trouble for them. When the breakfast room was full, they opened up another conference room so no one was kept waiting.
With a few minor improvements this hotel would be an excellent hotel.

Everything expected of a HI Express plus a small pool. Staff excellent, room v.good, breakfast very good and plenty of food - even when we finished a couple of days at 10.30am, official closing time. Davejstorer “Don't believe all you read!” - has got it absolutely right. We also arrived on Bastille day - excellent fireworks. We stayed a week as it was a good base location for visiting the region.
Odysium centre nearby (2mins) has a large shopping centre, tram stops (line 1), Gaumont cinema, and about 10 chain-style restaurants

We read a couple of poor reviews of this hotel but booked anyway as the location was right for us we arrived on Bastille day, had a great welcome from Anais on reception, our room was clean, light with good air condition and a huge bed. Parking and amenities were good even a small pool which was being well used as the weather was fabulous.

We walked over the road to the Odysium centre and caught a tram into Montpellier 3.8 euros for a day ticket great value had a good look round then back to the hotel in time for an incredible firework display which we watched on the road outside.

A good hearty breakfast and absolutely no shortage of food as had been reported, I would definitely come again, a great City and this hotel is well placed to visit all the surrounding area.

I stayed here twice recently as a convenient break driving to and from Spain from the UK. The hotel is situated well outside the city of Montpellier but convenient for the road network. Others have mentioned the 12 Euro parking charge but I felt it worthwhile for the extra security when parking a car full of expensive gear.

My dog was made most welcome but unfortunately was not permitted in the outdoor pool. The free Wi-Fi worked well in the guest rooms. The ice machine was welcome as it meant I could cool my own Coke rather than pay for an expensive can from the vending machine.

Breakfast was fresh although HI Express could learn a thing or two about orange juice from the Hilton group. There's a McDonalds over the road for those who need a quick bite of something in the evening.

Dear guest,
thank you very much for this comment!
The whole team and I are delighted that we have been able to satisfy you.
It is true that the implementation of the hotel really allows any choice of destination, the sea on one side in the center of Montpellier on the other (20 minutes by tram from the Place de la Comédie), and near the freeway.
We look forward to welcoming you again soon at the Holiday Inn Express Odysseum.

This hotel seems to be used mainly by business customers because there are no tourist attractions within walking distance. Public transportation (tram) is nearby to take you into Montpellier Center however. Montpellier with its pedestrian-only zone was a surprise treat. There is a charge for parking, but breakfast is free. The breakfast is better than the free ones I'm used to in the US. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and everything works well - perhaps because the hotel seems to be newly constructed. The staff was very friendly and even helped me with my French when I asked. My only complaint is that there was no check-in parking area. When we arrived I had to park illegally in the middle of a sidewalk. The parking lot (paid) is locked so can't be used for checking in. And the street parking was apparently taken up by guests who did not want to pay the 12 euro daily parking fee.
