This is the grimiest and dingiest hotel we have ever stayed in , fooled by the reviews, I thought as it was only for one night ...... wrong. Seedy, dirty , gross. There is no redeeming feature here, how people can descibe this as value for money, I would have preferred to sleep on the streets , but the area did not lend itself to this idea. Ants in the bathroom, peeling paint, filthy light switches , even more filthy carpets , stank of smoke in a non smoking room, spatterings of something disgusting on the walls and doors, , oh and the besy part, hairs (not ours ) in the sheets , a blanket (the type that you would have have incinerated to clean it ) with cigarette burns, holes , we slept on the bed not in it, we passed on the "Breakfast " think thats what they called it , this is the first time I have reviewed a hotel in this way, and I definately hope it is my last . ugh, ......,makes me shiver

We went to Montreal as a family while my husband was on a work trip. We chose the Hotel des Arts for its location but the location could not make up for the poor quality of the room. There were cigarette burn holes in the bedspread, the baseboard heater smelled when we turned on the A/C, the Wifi did not work in our room, the beds were HARD AS A ROCK (I just sat on it) etc. etc. We tried to cancel our three night stay and were told to call the booking company - the company said to talk to the hotel - and it became a game of phone tag. The front staff was extremely unaccommodating and, when met with adversity (another traveller was trying to get his money back at the same time I was), she claimed that it was her first day on the job. Speaking with a manager was not possible as she claimed that he would not be in until the next morning. We did not take her up on the offer and chose not to stay there at all in the hopes of reaching a resolution that would see some of our money returned. I wanted so badly to be pleased with the hotel for the price, but I would highly recommend spending a little more money and staying somewhere else.

Pluses: 1.Handy for UQAM, the Bus Station and the Metro. 2.The price is keen. 3.Rooms are a good size 4. Beds are comfortable. 5. There is one very helpful and pleasant receptionist... As for the minuses: 1.The public areas (specially stairs/corridors) are dingy and grubby. 2.The DIY breakfast area is not big enough. 3.The plates, cups and bowls, cutlery is all plastic/polystyrene/paper. So much for the planet! 4. No tea/coffee facilities in room - only permanently on the hob stuff downstairs. 5. There can be very long waits for a laborious and curt check-in. 6. Even paying in advance you need $100 credit card deposit and they copy your ID document too. 7. There is no real service to speak of. 8. Bad reviews seem to receive "thank you"s but no action.

Having read other reviews after I had already booked and fully paid for a night freaked me out a little but I have to say staying there for a night was actually a totally unspectacular affair. The check-in and check-out was seamless and both staff were very friendly and pleasant. The room itself showed its age but was clean, a/c was working fine and we had a good nights sleep. However, as in many older hotels, the wall insulation and especially the noise from the corridor might be problematic, especially at the weekend (we stayed during the week) if you have inconsiderate pricks coming back early in the morning who slam their doors. But given that this is a two star budget hotel, this is something to be expected and I experienced it in much pricier hotel as well (the inconsiderate pricks that is ...). Breakfast was simple (bagels, jam, butter, chocolate croissants, coffee, tea and juice) but sufficient. And for sure the location is as central as it gets. Only caveat is parking: virtually all parking in downtown Montreal is permit only, so parking garages are the only option (and this can be anywhere from $11-$30 for the night).

We just stayed at the Hotel Des Arts and I must say for a budget tourist class hotel, you can't beat the price or location. The St Laurent Metro was just steps away from everything we wanted to do and for what you got for the price was quite satisfactory for us. Parking was non existent but since we came to Montreal by train, that in no way was not an issue. Our biggest complaint was that there was a lack of communication between the housekeeping staff and the front desk. After the first day, the housekeeping staff forgot to bring us cups and facecloths. My wife and I need four facecloths per night, but luckily the front desk staff were able to provide the face cloths for us as well as the cups. I don't mind going down to ask, but I should not have to do this every time we come back from a day of hard sightseeing. The location was convenient, is in a questionable area and at night it appeared a little creepy, particularly the one night after we came back from the Jennifer Lopez concert at Centre Bell. The breakfast was ok but it offered little variety-virtually everything was carbs. I think that could have used a little improvement. The overall atmosphere in our view was that of a glorified youth hostel, but since we can afford to travel but not stay at a luxury hotel, this more then filled the bill with us. If you are not fussy and can put up with minor inconveniences, Montreal is still an affordable city to visit and this hotel is a prime example of affordability.
