This hotel may not look much from the outside but it is very clean and ideal for a low budget centre of town stay. It's only a short walk to rue st Catherine or the old city Montreal. The room was clean, a little old and dated but by no means dirty and it did not have any bed bugs.... More

The hotel is rather good and comfortable, the room was clean. There was free wi-fi. It has a very good position - in the city centre not far from a metro station. So we didn't have to use public transport, all sights were near. I didn't like the surroundings very much - the street was very dirty, but I don't... More

So I was a little Leary staying here after reading some hideous reviews, however, I'm at the hotel right now, it's the last day of our three day stay and I do not have one single complaint. We stayed in room 305 and it was clean, smelt nice and it's completely rodent and bed bug free despite what I read... More

This is not the nicest place, but the location for the price is great. I don't know if the other reviewers are that pretentious, or the place has gotten better, but ITS FINE. To top it off, there's a few free parking spaces out front, which is a godsend in this city. They are first come, first serve. The continental... More

Ok, ok, you want to save money, blah blah blah. Don't do it, just don't. At least not here. In a nutshell, it's worst than living in projects, neighborhood is iffy, building looks like a place where drug-dealers hang out (when I first saw the building I regretted it so much), place is filty, lots of bugs (I bought bug...

I stayed at this hotel for 5 days and it was a nice stay. The location is perfect, the hotel is close to everything. Staff was helpful and friendly. I had room #106 and it was clean, with wooden floor, a king-size bed and a large bath. Breakfast was a simple continental breakfast but was included in the price.

We booked a room through hotels.com while we were on the road at another nice hotel in Montreal. For some strange reason, hotels .com booked us at hotel des arts. Rude counter people,smelly rooms, no screens on window, noisey traffic and people in next room, etc. etc. I would not stay there again if it was free. Had to argue... More

I've stayed in my fair share of sketchy hostels/hotels over the years but this beats them all! We heard some type of animal (our guess was a mouse) in the walls. When we brought this up to front desk they said "just to let you know, all hotels in Montreal have mice," and refused to refund us! We checked out... More

My friend and I checked in to this "hotel" at about 2pm and checked out at 7pm of the same day. We found the room and hotel to be very run down, but decided for the price we paid we would suck it up for our two night stay. That is until we heard something scratching and chewing at the... More
