Home of the Montreal Canadiens, a legend in ice hockey!! Great atmosphere, good views from just about anywhere. Keep your wallet well stocked however cause food and drinks are VERY expensive/ Hey, the boys have to get paid, right!

Seing a hockey game in Bell Centre is a very Nice experience as you get very good seats almost everywhere. The show, yes it's a show, starts with lights on the ice with good sound. We were there on the saturday after what happened in Paris. It was amazing to see more than 23000 persons standing and being absolutely quiet,... More

All hockey fans must take the tour at the Bell Centre even if you are not a Habs fan. I took the noon English tour ($20.00) which consisted of 12 people. The tour was very informative and we basically toured the arena from top to bottom. Well worth the money and it takes about an hour.

Recently caught the Habs versus Avalanche. The outcome was not expected but the Bell Centre is a great place to see a game. Although the game was near capacity, it did not feel crowded. The lineups for drinks, snacks, and washrooms were very manageable. The arena is clean and the staff are friendly.

Whether you're a Habs (Montreal Canadian) fan or not, you have to visit the Bell Centre at least once to watch a hockey game. The pandemonium, the energy can be felt the minute you walk in. All supporting staff throughout all the venues are great - sure beats the ACC...but not when it come to the price of a beer... More

Fantastic venue and lots of on ice action. The venue laid on the French national anthem to pay respect to the terrorist attacks the day before in Paris. A decent tribute!! Prices just as they would be in any NHL arena. Security more thorough than usual, with very good reason. Bell Centre staff polite and welcoming throughout. The only disappointment... More

The energy and noise in this building is crazy during any game, and more so when it's the Maple Leafs or the Bruins.

The foods,parking,tickets concerts and hockey are too expensive. If you go there you need to get close tickets or you `ll see a concert from very far but close tickets are always expensive. You really have to look at the map before buying tickets if not you might get screw. Best section are in the red 101-102-124-112-113-114. Sometimes this is... More

We sat In the nosebleed seats on our visit to watch the Bruins play Montreal. They were at the end where Boston shot twice and we were in the 3rd to last row. Seats were very roomy and there was a railing in front of each row. Much more comfortable than similar seats in Boston Garden.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
