Where To Stay In The Heart of Montpellier: 8 Handpicked Stays

Exquisitely poised along the Mediterranean, Montpellier is one of France’s most dynamic southern cities. The history of the Montpellier will direct you to Place de la Comédie, which has served as the heartbeat and host of the city’s most prominent historical events. Place de la Comédie formally was known as l’OEuf or “the egg”, for its oblong shape still stands today as the central square of Montpellier. Bustling with energetic students, creative street performers and international travelers, Place de la Comédie is full of excitement and beauty. With colorful trams, Castries white stone buildings, gorgeous Haussmann exteriors, and the Fontaine des Trois Grâcese (Fountain of the Three Graces) the heart of Montpellier is a sight to behold. If you’re looking to stay in the vibrant central quarter of Montpellier, let me guide you through eight handpicked accommodations in Place de la Comédie.

1. Grand Hôtel du Midi (from 180 USD / 160.81 EUR)

You’ll be astounded when you stand before Grand Hôtel du Midi, as its Haussmann-style edifice evokes the feel of idyllic France. Just across from Opéra Comédie, Grand Hôtel du Midi truly lies in the heart of historic Montpellier. This century-old hotel had a revamp in 2015, so as you enjoy the contemporary furnishings, take a closer look at the wallpaper and wooden desks in the room. The fans of flamenco dancers in the wallpaper and silhouettes of dancers in the desks speak to an important aspect of Montpellier’s cultural identity: dance.

The rooms are comfortable and spacious, and as a guest, you have access to the Connectivity Lounge (workspace with computers) as well as the hotel’s staff of “Pullman Welcomers” who can recommend a great restaurant or local attraction. One of the best features of the hotel is undoubtably the rooftop terrace with a fitness center, pool and Mediterranean restaurant, Le Vertigo.
