We stayed here for 1 night in September 2015. We had a little difficulty finding the parking and Montpellier is on a one way system so we unfortunately had to drive round despite directions from the hotel as the garage wasn't clearly sign posted. The location worked very well for us as it was only a few minutes walk to... More

OK, here's the good bits... the hotel is in a very convenient location to city centre and train station. However, the hotel is very shabby and dirty. Supposedly four star, it most certainly is not. Room Service? Sorry, kitchen closed at weekends !!!! Thank goodness for the staff who genuinely do their very best and try to be as helpful... More

We arrived by train, so very handy ; we ate in the main square ,so again great ; we were first-time visitors and wanted to see everything, so a great position for tram ,museums,information access etc. Clean ,friendly, efficient, only limited lift access,but a delightful breakfast. We would stay there again and reccommend it highly.

If you go no further than this first sentence, be aware that there are roadworks in central Montpellier (September 2015) which will play havoc with your satnav. At least it did with our recently updated TomTom and I doubt if others are any different. At the end of this review, there is a “how to get there without suffering a... More

The hotel facilities and communal area are excellent. The staff were helpful and welcoming. The location is perfect, close to the hotel and the historic old town without being noisy or over-touristy. Overall, an excellent stay.

Dated, in need of some serious tlc, modernising and bringing into the 20th century. Staff were unhelpful and not at all welcoming or friendly. It also took us an hour to find the hotel. in the end a kind taxi driver allowed us to follow him (down a bus only route....apparently the only road access?!) Ok, location was central, near... More

My wife and I stayed at the Oceania for a week in mid-August. The location is good - near the train station and two blocks from the Place de la Comedie. The staff is friendly and tries very hard to make your stay enjoyable. The problem is that the hotel itself is simply worn out. We were on the 4th... More
