“so charming!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2007

we stayed here for 3 nights and loved it! it was our first trip to montreal and so i did plenty of researching. we look for the authentic experience we we travel. this place was great. it felt very european. the room was on the small side but quite comfortable. it's decorated beautifully, i love the colors and the view was of a viney green courtyard off the back of the building. quiet enough, you are in a city after all. good breakfast, delicious breads, pastries, ceral, yogurt, etc. the staff was very friendly and helpful.
the only reason we didn't give it an "excellent" rating was the smoky smell upon entering our room. we quickly became accutomed to it and didn't notice it much.
a good restaurant close by is called the cafe europa. it's across the street and down a half block, located near some new constructuon. small, locally owned with a wide variety of very reasonably priced european food. try the goulash or weiner schnitzel!
not your cookie cutter hotel and thats why we loved it!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2007

We had booked and prepaid the hotel through Expedia. Although we had asked for a smoking room, on check in there was only one room left and it was non-smoking, so we were forced to go outside to smoke and then go through a move the next day. This really put a bad start to the four days. We were moved the next day and the room was very nice, but if you open the window, there is considerable noise from the traffic. The included breakfact is simple, cereal, bread, juice and coffee. Finding a seat can be difficult when the hotel is full. Be prepared to walk up stairs, or try to get a room on the same floor as the desk or only one above.

  • Liked — the continental breakfast
  • Disliked — the stairs

We purchased a trip to Montreal on a website. We were scheduled to be in a STANDARD room. This room includes a DOUBLE bed, rather than Queen or King. The room offered to us was also in the basement - 1st floor - and it was kind of a cave like feeling. We requested a move and for $30 more a night we were given a King room with fireplace. The bathrooms at this hotel are rather small (would be uncomfortable for 2 people). Our second room was lovely, and the breakfast was nice - although there is not always enough seating. The staff was quite good.

  • Liked — historical attributes of the building
  • Disliked — 1st floor rooms are in basement of building

We stayed at Ch,V. on our recent long-weekend trip to Montreal. We found the hotel to be conveniently located on upscale Sherbrook St., steps from museums, restaurants and shopping.
Old Montral, Latin Quarter and Plateau are quite a bit farther but Its only a couple of blocks to the Metro.
The Hotel is clean. Our room was not big but comfortable and was nicely equiped. Central heating didn't work (was turned off, according to the front desk) despite the fact that the overnight temprature was 3 Celsius.(Corridors were heated but not the rooms ?!) We were however promptly given a space heater and extra blankets. The bathroom was clean, high average
Breakfast consists of an average continental buffet, adequate though nothing exciting to write home about.
The staff was helpful and pleasant.
I would stay here again - probably in a larger room though.

I have stayed here on 3 occasions in the last 2 years. This hotel is perfect in location and services. The staff is old world and very helpful and friendlly. The breakfast that is included is perfect in quality and variety. I ask for a quiet room and "walla" I am given a quiet room. Location is pefect if by foot or with car. The rooms are comfortable with yummy beds. I'm picky and travel alot and this hotel has it all. Great comfort and service.

  • Liked — service & comfort
  • Disliked — no complaints whatsoever

This hotel is great! Our room was beautiful and the hotel staff was very friendly. My girlfriends and I stayed in the honeymoon suite so there was plenty of room for the 3 of us. It is very close to the metro, shopping, great restaurants and the Museum of Fine Arts. After spending the day in the freezing cold it was nice to have some place comfortable to come home to!

  • Liked — It's location and the beautiful room.
  • Disliked — Too much bread and not enough protein at breakfast!

I was at this hotel twice in a week, on the first and the last night of my business journey to Canada.
The first night I was really amazed: I had a very large room with a relaxing bed to recover from jet lag and a large desk to work comfortably. Wow - I thought - this place is a real bargain and much nicer than expected.

The second night was very different. I spent the same amount of money but I was given a dark room in the basement so small that I could not keep my suitcase open and walk around the bed at the same time. Walking up and down to the basement on a steep, narrow staircase with my luggage was not pleasent as well.

Rooms are clean and in good order. Staff is very polite and helpful. Continental breakfast is almost non-existent.

Although the Chateau Versailles is overall a pleasant hotel, I would probably make a different choice next time I am in Montreal.

  • Liked — The politeness and friendliness of the staff
  • Disliked — The hotel may be quite noisy
