Close to the station area and on the outskirts of the medieval Écusson, Place de la Comédie is the meeting place for all Montpellier residents. For visitors, it is also an ideal starting point for exploring the historic centre. Covering 21,000 m², the square, also known as Place de l’œuf (literally, Egg Square) because of its oval shape, is now one of the largest pedestrian areas in Europe.
The square, which takes its name from the municipal theatre the Opéra Comédie, has always played a major role in local cultural life. In the 19th century, it was both a place of pleasure and performance for the Montpellier bourgeoisie, and a place of business with the wine market held in the large cafés of the time that adorned the square: the Grand Café de France and the Grand Café de Montpellier located on the corner of rue du Royal Hôtel. From the doors of the hotel to Place de la Comédie, the monumental design of the Haussmann buildings invites you to take in the architecture. The most observant flâneurs will like the sculpted pediment of the current Gaumont cinema, testifying to the former wine wealth of the city.
Grab a coffee on the terrace, spend an afternoon of shopping, have lunch in the sun or go for a nice round after work. Place de la Comédie in Montpellier is a place of good cheer: you can eat, stroll around, or meet up with family or friends. Happiness is just a few steps away during your stay at the hotel.
From the hotel entrance, which is located on rue de Maguelone in the station area, you can walk to Place de la Comédie in just two minutes. It is then easy to travel around the city of Montpellier and its surroundings, thanks to the tramway and bus lines accessible from the square. For residents who will be driving during their stay, our team offers you a special rate at the Parking Comédie car park after 48 hours (€33 then €5 per additional day).
