This building is spectacular and better looking from the exterior, than the lousy Air Canada Center in Toronto. Was told that this is the shrine of Ice Hockey In Quebec!

We had a private school tour of the Bell Centre when we were in Montreal in April. I'm blown away by the attention that they gave us. We were able to see the museum, history of hockey film, 200 level, private box, press level, alumni club, press conference room (SET UP FOR THE 2015 playoffs!) and the best part of... More

I'm a habs fans and I love to go the bell centre to go watch the habs. The atmosphere during a hockey game is insane especially when the habs play toronto or boston. For concerts i have to agree that it's great but the price are always ridiculous. Parking is 25$ so if you wanna save take the metro. Only... More

Attend concerts, ice capades or a MUST hockey game of the Montreal Canadiens because it's a great venue. You have to try their hot dogs amazing but get ready to pay not cheap. Visit the Montreal Canadiens boutique to purchase a HABS momento!!!

This was my first time at Bell Centre to watch my favourite team play on home ice for Stanley Cup Round 2 playoff game. The barn is amazing! The experience... out of this world. It was hard to move around during the intermissions, but given the event, no surprises here. Very impressed.

Superb bowl for watching hockey. No bad seat. Easy to get to in the downtown area by walking or Metro. Hot dogs and Pizza Pizza is the food with an occasional outlet for smoked meat. The concourses are narrow and get jammed with people very easily. A bit of a fire hazard to exit the place. I left the game... More

We attended the Bell Centre on two occasions during our stay in Montreal. The first was the hockey, a first for me and a brilliant experience. The second was Kovalev and Pascal, and although the Montreal native didn't win, he did his city proud!

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.
