It was our second stay at this hotel, and we wold stay there again. Clean, quiet very modern rooms, most with a lovely view. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere ... bright with lots of windows, overlooking St Denis Street. Pleasant service and a delicious breakfast buffet.

It was fun staying in this hotel. Fun to see teachers and professionals teaching students. Good value for the accommodation. Personally I had an issue with the quality of breakfast so I enjoyed very much crossing the street to visit Mamie Clafoutis bakery. The only other issue is the wifi, you have to keep on signing in every time your... More

This establishment boasting few rooms and a large restaurant on the main floor is the best value in downtown area of Montreal (Quebec). The area is full of restaurants (mostly French cuisine) and some very well-rated. However, the hotel's restaurant can compete for the best of tem in the area... Especially when the student chefs are cooking (only certain days... More

This hotel is a good option if you do not object being served by people undergoing training, and bear all the potential consequences. My wife an I stayed for three nights in January and were submitted to unpleasant experiences. The front desk managed to check-in a second person to our room and a complete stranger walked into our room when... More

This is a great hotel and many of the staff are training as part of the school which is housed in the hotel (that is the de l'institut part). Excellent service, great location, close to shopping, bars etc. and right beside a metro station, because nobody in their right mind should drive in Montreal. The breakfast, which is sometimes included,... More

You get high quality service here as the staff are in training for high end hotel and restaurant careers. The rooms are ecologically friendly, with local goat milk bathroom products, sustainable materials used for the bed linen. The rooms had balconies, and mine faced a park (although too cold to sit outside). All the rooms are on the upper floors,... More

This was a nice hotel in a convenient location. Great view of the city and across from a park. Walking distance to downtown and old port area. Handy to a metro station and regional bus station. Breakfast was reasonable and the staff were friendly and helpful. We had two stays during the month and the staff obligingly held our luggage... More

Pro: price, bed (the bed was amazing!!!), cleanliness, free breakfast, friendly workers. Con: no microwave, I thought breakfast would be excellent but it was ok, not close enough to walk to old downtown when cold out. Overall, great hotel especially for the price and quality.

We stayed in October. The location was fine, the price was OK, but as a culinary teaching center and environmentally friendly hotel, we expected better. We asked for a high room with a balcony facing the mountain, which we didn't get. The weekday breakfasts and service were very good, but the weekend was a different story, which may account for...

Booked after Christmas & took advantage of their holiday specials for room pricing. Room was on 7th floor; awesome view from balcony. Clean, modern rooms - nicely styled and quality furniture. Breakfast nice choice of hot & cold; coffee could be better. Breakfast was included in the room price, so couldn't really ask for more. Room had double bed &... More
