Fodor's Expert Review Le Guilhem
18 rue Jean-Jacques-Rousseau, Montpellier, Occitania, 34000, France
On the same quiet backstreet as the restaurant Le Petit Jardin, this hôtel de charme is actually a series of 16th-century houses rebuilt from ruins, replete with an extraordinary old garden. An elevator and state-of-the-art white-tile baths have been added, but Le Guilhem retains its original casement windows, slanting floors, and views toward the cathedral.
Tiny garret-style rooms at the top are great if you're traveling alone; if not, ask for the largest available.
