Overlooking the Lez River–and the sparkling Mediterranean beyond–the imposing glass façade of the Pullman Montpelier is a familiar city landmark. There are 89 rooms in the 8-story uber modern hotel, the neutral color scheme broken up here and there with bold splashes of red, yellow and purple. The décor in the spacious, light-filled rooms is mid-century minimalist, with large desks, Nespresso coffee machines, and well-stocked mini bars. Bathrooms are kitted out in grey slate, with walk-in rain showers and Roger & Gallet skin products. At the hotel’s swank rooftop restaurant, Le Vertigo, choose from a first-rate menu of classic Mediterranean dishes like tuna steak with green pea flan or steak frites; or simply sip champagne on the breezy outside terrace. The state-of-the-art fitness center is open 24/7–and be sure to leave time for a sundowner or two at the sleek and salubrious Zanzibar; or pull up a chunky sun lounger and relax on the deck: the pool has eye-popping views of the Antigone district below, a neighborhood designed by world-famous Catalan architect, Ricardo Bofill.
In the Area
One of the most enticing cities in the south of France, Montpelier is worth taking several days to explore. Start with an amble around The Comédie in The Old Town, an elegant 18th century square just ten minutes’ walk from the hotel. Grab a table outside Café Riche and sip a glass of Chablis while admiring The Three Graces fountain opposite. Then take in a show at the Opera House or soak up one of France’s finest collections of European art at the recently refurbished Musée Fabre. Want to escape the city? Easy–a long stretch of fine, golden sand–Plage de Carnon–is just 10 kms away.
How to Get There
It is not often that I rat a Pullman only average but as I sit here in a daze of tiredness, I cannot bring my self to rate as “very” good. Even with the window open the room was very hot. The trouble is the tram is right outside the window and I swear runs all night. The hotel is walking distance to the centre of town, the hotel is comfortable and smart, staff were friendly and food was good. The gym is small but has a view, same view that the restaurant has. 😵💤💤
Not sure why the ratings were so high for the hotel. It is close to the city center (not a direct walk), but everything else is mediocre. The front desk staff were friendly, although not that helpful. The rooms were too warm to sleep at night without the windows wide open, but then the noise level made it difficult to sleep. The wait staff at a the roof top bar were less than friendly. The food selection for breakfast was ok. If I ever return to Montpellier, I'll look for other options.....
A small but conveniently located hotel ideal for business trips. Rooms well appointed with lovely facilities and complimentary toiletries. Staff were excellent and friendly. Room service menu somewhat limited which was disappointing but other than that it is hard to fault this hotel!
AA very good hotel in the city center. Rooms are comfortable and equipped with double glazing to stop the street noise.
A small swimming pool on the roof and a good restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The staff is friendly and provide valet parking service.
For us Hotel is about location, atmosphere, charm and service
I am sorry but we did not like this hotel. Even if the staff are really nice.
For us the location is more like a business hotel. We did not like the neighborhood that you walk through to go to Montpellier old town. In fact, we did not like Montpellier at all.
There is a nice pool on the terrace and the rooms are OK. But it has a business atmosphere
I guess we were spoiled after our sejour in Provence
