Again, Hotel l'Abri du Voyageur more than met my expectations. We paid cash and got the room for 80 Canadian Dollars per night for a two bed room. This time I had my 9 year old granddaughter with me and we were able to experience many of the free Montreal Jazz Festival events as the hotel is right next to... More

Yes this location is great, you can walk around Montreal and come back to the room throughout the day for a rest or just to use your own washroom. Perfect. The rooms have a lot of potential and the owners are continually working on updating them. So they are a little rough if you were expecting a finished room. Like... More

This is the second time I have used this hotel for my groups from NYC, and will definitely be back. Our group were 11 people, all who raved on how helpful and accommodating the staff at this hotel are 24/7. Extremely clean, excellent location, and superb prices, this hotel can't be beat.

My girlfriend and i stayed here for 3 days in January because we wanted a good price for a central downtown location. We were wary because of the low price but the reviews on here convinced us.

I wrote a long review on this hotel but was not posted. So I toned down my criticism so reviewers can be informed based on all reviews, not just the 4/5 stairs. You get what you paid for. Having to use a white side door to enter a 4-rooms suite was unexpected. The man at the front desk was rude.... More

The answer is easy - value-for-money. Try comparing "Abri" prices to other hotels in the area and you will soon find out. Secondly, although the prices are sharp, the experience is not cheap. Sure there are lots of stairs; sure it has odd shaped corridors; sure the bathroom lay-out looks like a conversion; sure there is a sex shop next... More

Booked for a single night online rate of 67CDN. Cheapest room in the area. There was a queen bed and a single in my room, AC worked.

Definitely worth your money - when we stayed, there was a music festival outside on Rue Sainte-Catherine, so we went out every night. The staff was friendly and accommodating. It was loud outside because there are a lot of events in the Quartier des Spectacles, which we didn't mind because we were in Montreal to enjoy the nightlife. It is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dating back to 1876, Abri du Voyageur Hotel has been renovated in keeping with its historical character. High ceilings, bare brick walls, maple-wood floors, continental doors are reminiscent of the past and give our hotel a unique personality. Abri du Voyageur Hotel is not an impersonal, run-of-the-mill cookie factory type hotel but is part and parcel of the history and evolution of the Faubourg St.Laurent and of Montreal.Abri du Voyageur Hotel is adjacent to the Quartier des Spectacles Hotel. Each hotel is in a separate building linked by a common lobby and reception. A single entry serves both hotels in a 4 storey centennial building.All our rooms and studios are equipped with an air-conditioner and cable television. We also offer free wireless internet for all our guests.A friendly professional staff and a warm ambiance offers you a welcomed refuge in the midst of the hustle and bustle of downtown Montreal. Relax in our ‘hotel de charme’ and visit by foot Montreals’ boutiques, cinemas, restaurants, museums, art galleries, sport events, shows, bars and discothèques. Metro St.Laurent ( subway station) is less than a block from the hotel and will bring you in 10 to 15 minutes to those few sites not in walking distance ( ex. Doré Beach on the St.Lawrence River, Mount Royal, the Botanical Gardens, the Biodôme, the Casino of Montreal). What a dream location! ... more   less
