A previous review compares Germain des Pres with other hotels in the chain - and this is terribly unfair. I stay at this hotel for business on a regular basis and I would NEVER be able to find the same level of service and comfort for the same price elsewhere.
If you look at the prices of rooms at Le Germain in Montreal or Hotel Dominion, you will find them almost double what you will pay at Germain des Pres. The only drawback is location but it is fine for business travellers, and for tourists who do not mind driving to other places in town.
The bed are great, rooms are modern and clean, bathrooms totally functional, staff is courteous - and check the great food at le Bistango. I recommend this hotel to anyone who does not mind staying in the suburbs of the city.
