If you are seeking nightlife, outdoor sidewalk cafes, diverse restaurants and a boutique shopping experience in Montreal, the Latin Quartier checks all those boxes. All generations can be found in the Latin Quartier as well as languages spoken. French, English, Spanish, German and Chinese to name a few. I enjoyed eating at Saint=Houblin-Quartier Latin restaurant and had drinks at Le Salut Back. Wall murals and street art add to the artistic ambience of the Quartier. During the spring, summer and fall the streets are bussing with tourists, locals and college students. The University of Quebec and Montreal has a campus in the Latin Quartier. Inns and hotels are plentiful but check them out for your suitability. The higher end hotels are in downtown Montreal.

The Grande Bibliotheque du Quebec is located in the Latin Quartier and if you are like me, it is a must see to explore. The library opens early and closes late to accommodate students. The Montreal film fest takes place in the Latin Quartier. Place Emilie-Gamelin is a nice shaded and quiet park with sculptures. There are occasional free concerts in the park.

The public subway has links to the Latin Quartier with a stop on Berri Street. You can walk from from Vieux Port to Saint Denis, the heart of the Latin Quartier, in less than a half hour.

Just happened upon this neighborhood. Lots of people watching, All kinds of places to eat and drink. Outdoor seating at many restaurants and cafés. Gets crowded at the end of the day and in the evening, but that’s part of the fun.

Was in the Latin Quarter on Christmas Day, a number of places were open for dinner and the street had a nice feel to it. Check this place out early or late it a great place to be.

Overpriced and touristy. Food has no flavors or is just plain gross. Crowded and bums on the street. If you do eat outside you get harassed by the bums. Ate 2 time in different location hoping for a different experience got the same treatment every time!

This is the student quarter for UQAM. So, there are relatively inexpensive food and drink options here. Some slightly spendier ones too that are good as well. One is Mache, for good comfy Quebecois food. For breakfast, options are few until about 10 or 11 am.

Upon coming to the Latin Quarter Hotel, we were accosted by a well-meaning but agressive heroin addict who wanted to help us with our bags...and wallets. After emptying the car & parking it approximately 1km away, we proceeded to our 120-degree room. Being that the temperature in the hallway was about 70 degrees Fahrenheit, we were mildly upset. Upon learning that, our front-desk concierge busted his behind to find us a couple of creaky, yet functioning fans. While sweating the night away, we were entertained with the blaring guitar from the bar below our first-floor room, and the thundering bass of the strip club next door, until about 3 AM.
The next day, we happily moved to a room upstairs (which did have a 20 degree temperature difference, for the better). It had a flat-screen TV, basic cable, and a surprisingly clean carpet & bathroom! The experience the night before left us wondering about a change, but it worked out for the better. The only downside, was a couple with an obvious drinking problem staying in the room next door. Their incessant banter was a source of great whimsy til about 4AM or so.
In a nutshell. The hotel was adequate. If you are a family, stay out of the Latin Quarter; unless you are a family of drug-peddlers or want to start a rehab clinic. The staff was adequate, the soda machine was adequate, the toilet was adequate. If you crave mediocrity, this is your place. Otherwise, spend 30 extra bucks a night & go to a Holiday Inn.

Booked a hotel, sight unseen, for a short stay in the Latin Quarter of Montreal, Saint-Denis St. Wasn't sure what to expect because reviews were all over the place. Great decision to go with this part of town. I'd been once before to Montreal and knew the downtown area and Old Montreal, but the Latin Quarter really captures the spirit of Montreal. It is filled with lively sidewalk cafes (there are literally dozens to choose from). You get the sense that people here work to live; they don't live to work. The cafes are filled with the young and the old, people are relaxed and smiling, laughing and conversing in French, English, Spanish, German, Chinese. It doesn't matter. People will stop and help you and do it with a smile. You can easily walk to Old Montreal or St. Catherine Street. The inns and the hotels are plentiful. You will realize that you are in North America's friendliest, most open city.
