There are some really mixed reviews of this hotel and I can see why. If you would like to find somewhere a little different, charming and boutique then this would be a good choice. If your taste runs to more mainstream, a bit bland and predictable (no shame - sometimes we all want that!) then this may not be the... More

Stayed three nights in June, and it was a strange mixture of pros and cons. Pros: nice rooms, good beds, Nespresso machines, excellent shower, good climate control, friendly owner who tried to be helpful, nice little bistro downstairs (outside the building) for breakfast, very good proximity to a key Metro stop and walkable to many other good places. Cons: generally... More

Once you check in, this hotel is great. Just double park on the fast paced main drag and the owner will give you complimentary parking just around the corner. The rooms are big and surprisingly quiet given the nature of the neighborhood and the existence of a bistro at street level. Very friendly and helpful. No elevator.

We had three nights in Montreal and chose this hotel mainly on location. It is in an excellent location for the subway. It is also in a street with lots of bars, cafés and restaurants. The hotel itself is small, however, the owner is on hand to answer questions and help with information about Montreal. The room we had was... More

The location of this hotel is pretty decent for getting around, we never needed a car. Took the 747 bus from the airport and were set for the long weekend. Staff was very nice and they cleaned the rooms perfectly. We were on the 2nd floor. Wi-Fi was a little spotty but worked well enough. Our room was also facing... More

The good: Nicely decorated in a contemporary style. Location is excellent... simply walk out the door and there are bars, restaurant, and shopping. Also, a Tim Hortons and Second Cup right nearby for that morning jolt of caffeine. Shower was a good size, and water pressure was fantastic (nothing worse than a weak shower). The room was spotless. Nespresso machine... More

We rented this hotel because of the great review and the great price. With the high expectation they certainly deliver. Pros: Great location Great room, huge bathroom and everything clean and nicely laid out Great stuff included - espresso, water, bath robes Cons: The TV should be bigger.

My wife & I stayed here for 2 nights in suite 101 and we were very pleased! It is on Rue St. Denis which has many restaurants within walking distance. The metro is 1 minute walk away and old Montreal is 15 minutes walk. The rooms are impeccably clean and after our first night, we returned to even find our... More

This is an instance when I wonder if an entity is somehow gaming the Travelocity system. This hotel is fine. No more, no less. It is certainly not a four-star establishment by French or American standards; I don't know what the star maximum is in Canada, so if it's a wider scale, maybe that explains it. The positives: The room... More

I stayed 5 nights in this hotel and I appreciated very much the location. Many restaurants, cinemas, one minutes walk from a nice tea salon where they have lovely Japanese tea camellia-sinensis.com). 2 minutes walk from the metro and 15 min walk to the old city! I had a very nice room on the first floor on the back side,... More
