Hotel very small. One shared bathroom and one shared toilet. Bad smell all around it. In the website, it has wonderful pictures. The rooms are small, bad smell, old and small TVs, and no parking, you have to feed the meter for your car to park on the street. I don't want to say more, I just want to say,... More

Now, I'm going to star by saying, plain and simple, if the idea of staying in a cozy inn located two floors (of stairs) above an amazing cafe with easily the coolest staff of people you will find in Montreal is not what you're interested in, then this is not the place for you. We stayed here in July (2013)... More

We booked Pensione Popolo as a cheaper option to rest up for a few days after our long journey from London - it had good reviews and was in an interesting part of town. We were not prepared for how small and basic it is. It was clean but boy was it small, especially for a family of 4. And... More

Chose this place as an alternative to either an expensive downtown hotel or a cheap (but loud and dirty) hostel. I knew nothing about the neighborhood but saw that it was relatively close to downtown (and very near a metro stop) and was surrounded by lots of bars and restaurants, and the price of the place couldn't be beat. I... More

I know cheesy title, but you should know about this. As the incident would go, our car, my husband and I's, was stolen in Montreal. Apparently it's an unspoken big thing for cars traveling from the USA. Read all the way at the end for my Car Warning details. First I would like to talk about the hotel. The staff... More

This is like a youth hostel, valid for 20$, but not worth the 88$ we paid. No clean, no towels on the room, no elevator (and 3 floors of narrow stairs, we were suffering with our suitcases), noisy, 40min walking from the historic centre or shopping areas, no reception. We only liked the bar downstairs, but you only can pay... More

I stayed here for a few nights while attending a conference in town. I wanted an escape from the abundant scientists at the conference and knew that Le Plateau would be the place to find it. I stumbled on the Pensione on Google Maps while checking out the neighbourhood and then discovered that the Casa Del Popolo is exactly what... More

The pensione consists of four small rooms on the 3rd floor (walk up, narrow staircase) above a cool bar and music venue. You will hear the music in your room, but not loudly -- more like a distant bass line. It didn't interfere with sleep for me. Fantastic location (walk/bikeshare to everything in the Plateau and Mile End) and great... More

I had no trouble collecting an envelope with my passcode for the door to the pensione from the main floor restaurant. It was before the official check in time but that didn't seem to matter. At first I was surprised to see the furniture in my room was basic and scuffed up. Then I remembered the price I had paid... More
