Hard to find and understand and some pictures on here messed me up and ended up roaming around lost for two hours due to the Eaton center picture being in this review page.... It's a series of underground hallways with some places to eat, but...More
I love Montreal, and walking around Old Montreal, but I was somewhat disappointed with the lack of shopping available until I found the Underground City!! What a pleasant surprise! Its a little confusing finding your way around inside, but with help of the map kiosks,...More
True, it is great to avoid being outside in freezing winters.
But, there are not very many signs posted that show how it all connects and how to get from point a to point b. Easy to run into a dead end and have to...More
If winter has a grip on your popsicle toes, try this on for size.
You can reach this area by metro and basically walk for miles without having to step outside.
Shops of all kinds and eateries are plentiful. You can even access a large...More
I’d been to Montreal a couple years ago in the summer and had no idea this existed. We were there a few days ago when there was a huge snowstorm and frigid temperatures. Staying at Hotel Bonaparte and then having direct access to the underground...More
I couldn't believe that one could go almost from anywhere to anywhere without being exposed to the weather. That's just what you can do if you use this underground . One can also eat and shop as one walks from point to point. Truly amazing...More
Visiting in late December it made sense for us to attempt to navigate the underground city! It is not easy but we feel after 3 days of trying we leave a little more confident!
PROS: Warm!, Food outlets, Shopping. We also stayed at Hotel Bonaventure...More
Not sure why its called underground ;) Its a multi-level shopping arcade with mostly upscale stores, and a lot of empty storefronts. The latter makes it less than exciting to spend some time. Preferred the area outside this place

The underground shopping area is quite large and it’s easy to get turned around. Finding your car after an extensive underground shopping experience may be challenging.
Metro stops are located around the underground city. So my recommendation is leave the car at your hotel and use the public transportation it’s easy and convenient. Montreal prides itself on its clean and effecient public transportation. Or if you like there are plenty of cabs. Either option is better than driving your car. For me once you arrive in Montreal park the car and leave it parked until you are ready to depart the city.
The Queen E and the InterContinental. These are high end facilities. I am not aware of any mid-range hotels attached to the underground city. That does not mean there are none. Peel Street has a hotel just across the street... More
