I stayed at La Petite Prune for 3 nights in September while I was visiting Montreal for a conference. I wanted a more home-y, local flavour and opted for a B&B instead of one of the big chain hotels. I had looked around a lot of B&B's and this one had a great location AND the price was very affordable. I really enjoyed my stay and cannot think of a place with better value! (I have traveled to Montreal several times before, staying in diferent hotels or B&B's).
The location: just a 3 mins. walk from Sherbrooke STM station. It is right near major street Sherbrooke and St. Denis, but still feels quiet. It is on a residential street, close to a small park with a fountain. Very convenient and safe for a woman traveling alone. I like that it is close to great restaurants that are less touristy than the ones downtown or in Old Montreal. I also found a nice yoga studio just steps away on St. Denis (http://www.yoga-sangha.com/).
The space: this B&B has 5 rooms and is located in a cozy house. The colours are bright and cheerful and the rooms are nicely decorated. I stayed in "Mori", which had a queen bed. It was just right for my purposes. I didn't spend much time in my room, but it was a quiet place to read or work on my computer (free wifi). The only minor issue for me was that the walls are thin, so if someone in the next room wakes up early, chances are you will hear the noise and wake up too.The shared upstairs bathroom had a nice skylight and was always very clean. I never had to wait to use it. There's shampoo, conditioner, body wash, etc. in case you forgot anything. The dining room area is nice -- a great spot to enjoy breakfast with other guests. There is a desktop computer you can use and some guidebooks.
Service: the owner, Akiko, offers friendly, personal service. She runs the whole place herself and is very accommodating if you need an early/late check-in or check-out. She also used to be a chef and cooks delicious breakfast items, like chocolate chip scones, fresh fruit jams, and omelettes. Starting the day with a nice breakfast was a highlight for me.
This is one of the best B&B's I have stayed in and I will certainly be back the next time I visit Montreal!
