We’ve travelled extensively in various countries and we know when we decide to stay in a budget hotel, there are compromises and reasonable expectations. We don’t expect luxury or perks. We could deal with the noisy area in Montreal’s red light district (I’m an ex-Montrealer so can handle myself well in the city), the mouse trap under the bathroom sink,... More

I'm sorry about what happened to you that day. I was not there that morning, when I arrived, I learned what happened but you have already gone. For the problem of the door, I'm sincerely sorry, it was the fault of my employee, she is new, it was her first day of work. I already talked to her and check... More

Stayed here on an overnight visit. The hotel is centrally located to the shopping district and is within a 10 minute walk to Old Montreal. The rooms are modest, but remarkably clean and comfortable. There is free wifi and several places around to grab a good bite to eat and drink. The neighbourhood is tired and busy, but is very... More

Very uncomfortable hotel, NO ELEVATOR (!), we had to carry our luggages up to the third floor while no one helped us, very small room (while we asked for superior, queen size bed and when we asked for a better room they...

Hello Angelina, we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at our hotel. We unfortunately do not have an elevator for guests because it is an older, historic building, but we gladly help any of our clients with their luggage if they ask for help at the reception. Because the hotel is so busy during the... More

First visit to Montreal, really pleased with choosing here. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the "Sex" shop below (for those from the UK, read Ann Summers) - basically a glorified underwear shop. From some over the top reports, we were expecting this place to be right in the middle of a red light district! The hotel is on the... More

Right in the middle of it all (unknowingly came during Just for Laughs festival). Great central location, easy walks to old city, plateau neighborhood, Mont Royal park. Was relatively quiet for the central/loud location (the AC unit helped mask the noise). Parked on the street with no problem (just pay attention to the no parking times, and when it is... More

This hotel was located right in the heart of the Just For Laughs Festival. The room, despite being right above a DJ booth, was incredibly quiet. It was a good size for a couple. The bathroom situation was a bit odd. The actual toilet was in a separate room from the sink and shower. If there was a small sink... More

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. We had read on TA about the sex shop (slight exaggeration more of a lingerie shop its neon lit 'erotica' sign) and the steep stairs which are difficult with heavy luggage so we knew what to expect. Our room was small & well equipped. I didn't like the dim lighting which along with non-... More

Our first trip to Montreal happily landed us here - a very convenient location in the arts center, with performance venues all around. Vieux (old) Montreal is a 5-10 minute walk.

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier des Spectacles
The bar-none entertainment district for music and arts, Quartier des Spectacles is an interactive playground that delights the senses. It totals over 30 performance halls, with the vibrant Place des Festivals at its heart. The outdoor event space features glowing towers, glass edifices, and granite-lined bike paths, and hosts annual festivals, concerts, and comedy nights. The cinema, theaters, and exhibition centers are entwined with external art projects, exemplified at Montreal's Contemporary Art Museum and appearing along every walkway of the Promenade des Artistes in the form of sculpture and public works, from digitally-enhanced swingsets to glowing fountains. Design, performance, and alternative music come together here, a stone's throw from the lively Latin Quarter along Rue Saint-Denis, the quintessential after-party spot for dinner and a drink following a day of jazz, poetry and play.
