We stayed in this hotel for three nights and couldn't have found anywhere in a better location. It is situated on the port side with some lovely views, particularly from the roof top terrace, but if you exit from the rear you are in the heart of the old town. There are numerous restaurants, shops etc. all on your doorstep and the overall atmosphere is charming.
The hotel is in an old converted building which was originally a leather manufacturer. Our room had a high ceiling, exposed stone walls and metal beams and girders giving it a quirky feel. It was well furnished in a modern style with good bathroom facilities. The queen size bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in!
Breakfast is served in the adjoining Taverne Gaspar by friendly staff. It consists of a small buffet, bread, toast, fruit etc. and then a hot choice from the menu served to your table, well cooked and presented.
Would definitely stay again at this hotel, all the staff are so welcoming and friendly, couldn't walk into the hotel or past reception without someone speaking to you, the concierge even remembered our name.
The only parking available at the hotel is valet parking at 30$ a day, we parked in the multi storey opposite the hotel, few minutes walk away, for 24$ a day, still expensive we felt and actually because of the situation of the hotel you really do not need a car. Our only small gripe was that there were no facilities in the room to make hot drinks, however there is always free coffee available in reception.
Overall though a good choice in old Montreal!
