“great location in Montreal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

the location in Montreal is fantastic for anyone wanting to visit Old Montreal, the underground shopping centres, great dining etc. Easy to find if driving, and easy to get to from the train station or airport.
The staff at the front desk are exceptionally friendly, in both French & English. The valet car service was prompt & efficient.
The room itself: we had a loft room overlooking St Laurent Blvd and the mountain. The bed was very comfortable, the rest of the furniture not so much. The hotel is trying to be trendy, but the furniture was hard & not comfy at all. When I get to a hotel room I want to be able to relax & sprawl, can't be done on the chairs & very puny sofa. But we did not go there to lounge around, the location to China Town was perfect, literally across the street. And for wanting to go to Old Montreal it is blocks away, as is the Place d'Arts, and all kinds of shopping, restaurants etc.
The shower was small, and strangely laid out, but the lighting in the bathroom was good. Having a small bar fridge in the room is always appreciated. Coffee maker, but no coffee provided was odd. There was free coffee & muffins in the lobby in the morning, just annoying to have to get dressed to go downstairs to get coffee!
All in all, we would consider staying at this location again due to it's proximity to so many things to do in Montreal.

Room Tip: ask for a loft room, they are larger

Modern hotel. Rooms are quite small but well designed so there is plenty of space for stuff and to get around, and there is a microwave and mini-fridge. Staff are happy to converse in English as well as French. Our TV was a little fuzzy. Free wi-fi. Complimentary croissants, juice and coffee for breakfast until they get a restaurant. Close to bus stop that goes to the airport.

First time in this new "boutique" hotel St Laurent & Rene Levesque - close to lots of the action in Montreal. You can walk to st Catherines St - Luminiere was on and the Jazz Fest and Comedy Fest are in the same place. China town is right there and only a few blocks walk to the old City - super location! Didn't know what to expect - visit Montreal regularly and generally stay in larger, "Name" facilities. Check-in was a breeze, front desk very helpful in English or French, rooms small (like Paris), but extremely well laid out and everything is there and first class - bed, Wi-Fi, frig, micro, closet space, super clean bathroom, heat & AC worked and was quiet! Only downsides (and easily dealt with) is the parking, workout room is very small and needs better ventilation and there's no restaurant in-house. Good business meeting room facility and you can get "catered". I'll be back!

Room Tip: the building is concrete so not too noisy, but because it's on the intersection of two main stre...

Me and my husband stayed at the Hotel Zero 1 for 2 nights and we loved it. The day we arrived we took the bus from the airport that stopped right in front of the hotel, we just had to cross the street. The hotel has 2 subway options very close to it, and it is also at walking distance from the RES.

The hotel is clean (a little dark because of the dark walls but OK), modern, clean, beautiful room with a LOT of light.

The only thing i missed was a restaurant in the hotel or at least a cafeteria, but it is not quite necessary. The locations is VERY good even though it is just in front of China Town, it is NOT in China Town.

We stayed at this hotel February 17, 2013. We were going to see a show at the Metropolis in Montreal and I saw this new hotel and decided to try it out. It was wonderful, the check in was easy and fast, our room was cozy and perfect for me and my husband. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. They have a microwave and a sink in the room which is great if you are planning on staying longer than one night. The washroom is small but very clean. Overall we loved our stay here.

The hotel has very cozy rooms so if you are planning on spending a lot of time in the room, don't. The rooms are perfectly chic and cozy if you are planning a romantic getaway or want to be in arms reach of someone special. The rooms are clean, beds comfy, and the view spectacular. We overlooked Chinatown and it was great!! The hotel is a short walk from Old Montreal (10 min) or Saint Catherine Street (2 min) for shopping, food, and drink. There is a 24 hour convenience store attached to the hotel for supplies. The staff were wonderful and are willing to help out whenever possible for directions or ideas. One staff member stood out front in a dress shirt to hail us a cab in a snow storm!! The only downfall is no amenities; restaurant, pool, hot tub, lounge...otherwise, totally worth the stay.

Room Tip: 12th floor is the top, south facing is the best view!!

Zero 1 is a good hotel at a good price. The rooms are basically furnished and relatively small - but you have all that you need and we had ample space for our three night stay. Staff were friendly and helpful - although we wish that we'd been told about the free muffins and coffee at breakfast (there is no restaurant - opens later this year apparently) on arrival - would've saved one trip out into the snowstorm to get my partner organised for her early start. Still, the hotel is brilliantly located for supermarkets (just over a block away) that it wasn't too big an issue.

Location is also great for getting to downtown and Vieux Port - plus is close to metro and the Gare d'autocars.

Only real issue is that I imagine that it could get noisy if you had busy floor and boisterous neighbours. We had two rooms across the hall who were in for the hockey game ... they were pretty considerate, but you could hear them ...

Would definitely stay there next time we're across in Montréal ...
