When you see all the bad reviews on this place, believe them. If you don't mind a dirty dingy hotel, horrible service with horrible attitude, cold food in the restaurant and cockroaches, then go ahead, go for it. I didn't expect much for what we were paying. I thought, it can't be THAT bad. But oh, it was, and worse.... More

The only thing going for this hotel is its location. Other than that, I do not believe you can stay at a worst place. It is not that the small rooms did not suffice. What makes this place so bad is the rotten attitude of its employees. The front desk personnel was always rude! They acted as though we were... More

For sure when you pay 27$, you can't expect to have a 5 star service. The room is a bit dirty but it was not that bad : it doesn't look like they clean the walls often and it was a bit dusty in the corners of the floor but bed was good and clean and the shower/bathroom was fine.... More

If you think that your time is important, that you pay at least for a fair place to stay NEVER go to Hotel Montreal. Staff is unfriendly, bad people, aggresive, do not know nothing about customer service. The hotel include continental breakfast, you has to wait (2)or more hours to get a breakfast in the caffeteria of the hotel. The... More

Usually I try and find a positive in the places I stay so... This place has hot water... That's about it. We arrived at 6am from near the Costa Rican border and just needed somewhere to crash for a while before a flight out at 5pm so this place seemed ok on the booking.com but after being told to sit...

City was pretty full and I booked this hotel last minute from the airport, as there was no way to book a hotel from Cuba (bas Internet connections). I had to stay three nights in that terrible little cell. Pretty dirty and terrible atmosphere. You should really find easily a better place to stay, in a few clicks.

Unfortunately, we trusted our Taxi driver who brought us to this Place. A big mistake. Rooms are very small, bathroom too, dirty, lack any charm and are not worth 5 Dollars. It was so noisy that we could hardly get any sleep. Dont go there!
