This is an excellent budget hotel. The rooms and common areas were spacious, clean , comfortable and well maintained. The shared bathrooms were also spacious and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful.
The hotel is on the intersection of two major roads - one takes you to downtown, shopping areas and theatres. The other takes you to Chinatown, the old town and the Mount Royal district. Bedroom windows have double glazing so the noise wasn't a problem. Most of the tourist attractions are within walking distance.
The hotel is in a small strip club area, but I (a female) wasn't harassed and I felt safe all the time. There is very good securtiy at the hotel - someone is onsite 24h a day, the front door was locked and the rooms had decent locks.
Some of the floors are on a slight slope and there is no elevator, so if you have mobility problems you might find it easier to pay a bit extra and stay elsewhere.
I enjoyed my stay here and woud defintely stay again when I return to Montreal.
