We chose the Auberge de la Fontaine blindly based on location: we wanted to avoid staying in the very touristy Vieux-Montreal and thought that La Plateau sounded like a good fit for us. I
t turned out to be be quite nice; there is the pleasant Park de la Fontaine across the street and an active bike path right in front of the hotel. We could easily walk to St. Denis street, Mont Royal and Avenue Duluth. There are cute bistros near by and a charming feel over all in the area. The breakfast buffet is pretty generous, though the coffee could be better (I found myself just buying a cup to go at the Café de la Maison des cyclistes a block away). There is a little kitchen which stays open warm drinks and small snacks. It came in handy for us when we needed a cup of tea after being caught in a rainstorm and also when we were looking for champagne glasses.
Our room overlooked the Park de la Fontaine and, though small, was homey and sweet with exposed brick, modern art and a nice feeling. I slept very well, which is always a blessing.
The hotel was about a 15 dollar cab ride to the Gare Centrale train station. Once there, we walked, biked (there is a Bixi rental bike stand in the park across the street) and rode the Metro to get around the city. I do wish there were a closer Metro stop the the hotel (the nearest is Mont Royal, about a 10-12 minute walk). Still, I would stay here again for sure.
