Cheap, cheerful and central

Apartment - Private room · Rue Mareschal, Montpellier, Languedoc-Roussillon 34000, France

The Space

I'm a French-speaking Brit who has been living and working in Montpellier for five years. My apartment is near the Comedie (town centre), Ecusson (old town), and Polygone (shopping centre) - very central, and close to transport links; train, trams and bus.

There is a double room (i.e., it's a double bed!) available, with wardrobe and desk, and a shared bathroom and kitchen. Washing machine and WiFi internet available (for laptops/smartphones).

No smoking inside please (I smoke but take it outside), but there is a little courtyard to sit in (also nice for breakfasting etc!).

This is a great base to explore Montpellier and Languedoc.

The Comedie has loads of bars and cafes and is perfect for a spot of people watching, but venture up the Esplanade instead and there are lovely places for a cheap lunch in leafier surroundings. The old town is a maze of backstreets and little squares with great places to eat - I have my favourites (most in a reasonably price range!) so just ask.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Very central, great apartment. Thanks Phillipa, really enjoyed my stay. Inspired to try this AirBnB thing myself!

  • Philippa Booth, thank you for your attentions during our stay at your house

  • The apartment is very centrally located in a great part of Montpellier. We were able to walk everywhere during our weekend stay! Philippa was very nice and accommodating and flexible on check-in times. The apartment is located on the first floor, and the room is pretty big with a nice double bed. We kept the window open the first night for cool air from outside, but it was quite noisy since the apartment is so centrally located. I would definitely recommend it for a weekend stay in Montpellier!

  • Philippa is a welcome and nice host. She was very helpful and meet us when we got lost during the check-in. She also advises places of where to go and what to do in the area!

  • J'ai choisi d'aller chez Philippa en me fiant aux commentaires et j'ai bien fais. Philippa est en effet très accueillante et très gentille! L'appartement est à deux pas du centre ville et des transports en commun, l'idéal pour passer sa journée à visiter Montpellier et ces environs!

  • Philippa is a really nice, friendly and competent host, so it is easy to feel comfortable and welcome. And after walking so much through the beautiful, car-free center of Montpellier, we were glad, that her flat was so easy to reach. When we come once again to Montpellier - then definitely again to Philippa!

  • Tres bon location, grand appartement avec tout ce qu'il faut dans la chambre. Philippa nous a dit de faire comme chez nous. Notre séjour a été tres agréable.

  • Philippa's flat is perfectly located in Montpellier! It's barely 2mins walk from the main square so you're never far from the action. The flat itself is great too--you have your own, clean space and Philippa is very easy about using the communal spaces, incl lounge, bathroom, kitchen and patio.

    Philippa is GREAT host, so nice and friendly and easy to get along with. She's lived in Montpellier several years so knows the city very well and can advise you on loads of things, from museums to bars and restaurants (of which Montpellier has loads!!)

    I couldn't recommend staying at Philippa's, whether it's for a short break or a longer one!

    July 2013
  • Phillipa was a great host! I lost my luggage and phillipa was kind to offer help. I stayed for twomnigths and the place is very close to the main city square. She helped me finding the right train to the beach and was quite and nice. I would recommended her place for a great time in montpellier!!

  • I had a short and pleasant stay at Philippa's in Montpellier. She was a very welcoming and friendly host, and everything was more than fine!

I am a Brit who escaped the London rat-race five years ago to live in Montpellier. It was supposed to be for a year, but I liked it so much I decided to stay. I work in a small software house with a great team of people, I like music, art, books, and football. And cooking. If you stay at a weekend, there's a decent chance you'll get home-made cake.
