Hôtel Universel is not the first choice of hotels for my employer, however I lucked out that the other hotel was booked for the night. Hôtel Universel is a short ride from downtown Montréal and close to the Olympic Stadium and BioDome. The staff is friendly and helpful. The lobby and rooms are spacious and decorative. I stayed in room... More

This hotel is affordable and has everything you need (wide rooms, gym, indoor and out door pool, parking). It is located close to the Olympic stadium and the biodoom and around 20 minutes from the down town. Though it is very old and definitely need an upgrade.

Came here after my nightmares with the Newstar Hotel down the street and their Dirty Bedbug infested bull. This place is super clean. Everything works. Very comfortable and cheaper than hell down the street. This is my spot for future business trips from now on.

This hotel was good value for the money. The room was average. Very clean and the bathroom we had was updated. Room did have a funny smell, but when I complained they advised it was the cleaning supplies that the maids used. Pillows were terrible. Beds were comfortable. The free shuttle service to the Biodome was helpful and we walked... More

We stayed here on a busy festival weekend. The room was nice, front desk super-helpful and the breakfast in the onsite restaurant was very good. The hotel is just a short walk to the metro or the hotel will shuttle you there. The only drawback to the hotel was the hall noise in the morning. Other guests seemed to think... 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.
