The hotel is in a great location but not been modernized from the olympics in 1976. In the area around the hotel is a large park for running/ biking or walking, good for a family of all ages. The hotel has good amenities free wifi and free parking.

Dumpy, very out of date room. Toilet was running all night and the AC kept going off. Beds were reasonably comfortable but wouldn't want to stay there longer than just a quick over night stop. Could hear people in the hallways at night. Near Biodome but out of the way otherwise.

Front desk staff was very welcoming however the room left much to be desired. Awkward bathroom set up, flat pillows, poor refrigerator, and burnt out light bulbs. The overall decor was dated and reflective of the old Olympic village that surrounds the hotel.

Reasonable for discounted price but I would not recommend this hotel for full price. Very good location if visiting the Olympic Stadium or the Botanical Gardens. The hotel actually offers discounted tickets for the BioDome, Inscectarium and Planitarium which will save you money and they also offer a shuttle service to/from the Stadium. Parking is free, another bonus. It's a... More

The hotel was centrally located in the campus of the Olympic Village and many tourist sites were within walking distance as was the metro (10 minute walk) to go into the downtown area. The beds were comfy and the overall value was good. Staff (Sandrine) during check-in was helpful and friendly but during check-out was a bit dry. We lost... More

The hotel is great location if you going for first time to Montreal. Because is close by the train 10 min walking. And close by the Botanical garden and the olympic park ..also you can save money because is cheaper than stay in downtown. Staff is friendly and helpful the have the own bar with cold Canadian beer !

I can't believe there's mixed reviews. This hotel is really nice. The "dated" look I understand as its reflective of the fact it is situated in the Olympic village. I'd imagine it was very modern in 1976!! But it still has everything... Small gym, indoor and outdoor pools and a decent restaurant. A walk or short drive to some more... More

Staying in Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)

Neighborhood Profile
Olympic Park & Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa)
Named for the Olympic Stadium complexes built for the 1976 games, the Olympic Park and the surrounding neighborhood of Hochelaga-Maisonneuve (HoMa) make up an invigorated area dedicated to "Space for Life." Around the Olympic Village's arenas and stadiums, Rue Sherbrooke welcomes exploration of its sculpture gardens decorated in the works of Jean-Paul Riopelle and its museum culture headed by the historical Château Dufresne. Maisonneuve Park offers interactive experiences at its bio-dome, insectarium, planetarium, and botanical gardens. For a change of scene, the gentrified space along Rue Ontario Est is packed with the city's newest, edgiest cafes, where an imaginative, youthful crowd sips foamy cappuccinos. A visit here is incomplete without stepping into the vast halls of the Maisonneuve Market, with flower stalls, wine depots, and local produce.
