I picked this hotel because it was the right mix of price, amenities, and location. It was centrally located to everything we wanted to do. The hotel staff was professional and our room was kept very clean. We paid extra for a room with a private bathroom, but I did notice that the common area bathrooms were kept clean as... More

This place was right on time! It's a block away from the University of Quebec at Montreal, the Contemporary Art Museum and a few blocks away from the fantastic shopping on Rue St. Catherine. The addage of "Don't judge a book by its cover," DEFINITELY applies if you are looking at the building from the outside. The property is GORGEOUS... More

We came to Montreal for a few days after our wedding to relax and explore the city. We found a Living social deal for this hotel that couldn't be beat. We received two nights in a quaint room with a wonderful exposed brick wall. Although the bed was a little firm for our liking, the clean and simple decor made... More

When we arrived at the hotel, since we had paid extra for a studio room for 3 people, we were told our room was actually around the corner from the main entrance of the hotel and that we would be walked outside to get to its location. It was a very inconspicuous door that looks like it was once an... More

I will start by saying every single award won by this hotel on this and many booking sites are very well worth. Antique and urban clean look, warm and very helpful staff and owner in the middle of down town, 15 to 30 minutes wall from every venue with spending time. If stairs are a deal breaker, you're losing so... More

We called to book a room during a cross Canada road trip (we are a highly professional couple, not that this should matter how you treat people) and were treated so poorly over the phone that we did not book with them...

When I first arrived in front of the Quartier des spectacles Hotel on Ste-Catherine Street, I got a little scared: the immediate location (next to a sex shop) is not at all appealing, and the look of the building from the outside is not reassuring. I started feeling better as soon as I reached the lobby at the top of... More

Did I say that the location is perfect? it is within walking distance to almost every attraction. This is the good. And now for the bad and the ugly: staff is rude. it was 90 degrees outside (F) - no ac and the windows opened 4". When I complained, I was told that this is for "safety reasons". About 15... More

I believe that you might have made an error and reviewed the wrong property. I am sorry that you did not have a good experience at your hotel while in Montreal. The reason that I believe that this was made in error is that the information you related does not reflect our establishment. Our hotel does have air conditioning and... More

At first, I was skeptical about this hotel. I read about the sex shop downstairs, but I didn't read about the many sex clubs across the street on Saint-Laurent (the street you will probably use to approach the hotel). It seemed like a very sketchy area. However, this is the fascinating thing about Montreal -- it's not sketchy at all,... More

Right plonk on rue Ste-Catherine is Hotel Quartier des Spectacles. It is a fascinating warren-like building in an 'interesting' area. I arrived late at night to a warm greeting, a 30 second check-in and the enthusiastic assessment, "you have an AWESOME room". The duty manager was correct. My room: clean, clean,clean. 4 windows (which open) overlooking Ste-Catherine from the corner... More
