This is a charming hotel in a quiet neighborhood in the downtown area. It's more like a bed and breakfast, set in a 1900s Victorian. The beds are comfy, rooms and bathrooms clean, and a nice breakfast that includes chocolate croissants! It's also only a short walk to the metro station. They also have about 3 parking spaces that you... More

I've stayed at the Hotel Ambrose twice: once about 25 years ago with my soon-to-be husband, and recently with my son and some friends to visit McGill and Concordia in Montreal. I thought it was great both times! This time we stayed in the Family Suite and we had plenty of room for 5 people. Lovely architectural details including a... More

We were in Paris surely. A lovely bed and breakfast very well situated near the university. Exceptionally helpful staff, coffee on tap all day, comfy but a bit small room, good breakfast.

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Ambrose. I stayed in Room #39, located on the 3rd floor in the front of the hotel, for 3 nights. The room was very big, had a nice TV with lots of channels, 2 single comfortable beds and a sink and shower. Only complaint would be the water pressure in the shower was... More

If you are on a tight budget you want to come here. I went to a conference in Montreal and first day stayed in another cheap hotel close to the village but that area does not look safe, is a party zone and is dirty and full of drunk people. Next days I stayed in a 5-star hotel paid by... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights. We chose this place for the price and for the proximity to the Bell Centre where we were going for a concert. Also, the free breakfast made it a no brainer. Manoir Ambrose is well worth the money when you are travelling to Montreal. A few issues though: 1) after a long... More

Thank you AnnSatoshi for your thorough review. First off, I hope your husband did not hurt himself seriously! Secondly, one of the receptionist who gave you the wrong directions for bus 747 saw this review remembers you and felt badly for the misinformation. He wanted to apologize and won't let that happen again. Once again, thanks for the review, and... More

The location was great right in the middle of the City and easy walking distance to all shops and metro stations and underground shopping. The staff were very friendly however the old Manager was finishing the day we booked in and a new one was being trained. The new manager was great and very helpful. They allowed us to leave... More

Loved the location (very close to McGill), friendly staff - but the building itself was the draw for me. Odd shaped, weird stairways, confusing sightlines. I loved it. Dedicated parking was limited. No elevators (not a problem for me). Free wifi. Simple breakfast. Bottom line: well, it's the bottom line. Traveling alone, this place was a bargain. 3 nights for... More

I stayed here for three nights during a trip to Montreal with my husband. Upon arriving to this hotel, I was intrigued by the brown stone style buildiing, and the warm and cozy lobby area. However, after exhaustively carrying our own luggage up the long and seemingly neverending staircase, we enter our small standard room, and are immediately overcome by... More

Hi Jlou101, Thank you kindly for notes and comments, and I sincerely apologize for the lack of hospitality you experienced on your recent stay with us. We certainly wished that your experience was better, and can't help but feel like we did not do enough to serve you to our typical standards. I cannot tell whether you approached our staff... More

I stayed at this hotel after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. I had a basic room-I think they call it classic. It was quiet and very comfortable. It was very clean but probably needed a coat of paint. The breakfast was fine-nothing special-included hard boiled eggs, pastries, single portions of individually wrapped cheese, yogurt and other basic items. It was... More

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.
