Hotel Zero 1
Ranked #52 of 166 Hotels in Montreal
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I arrived at the hotel after 4 flights & just after midnight local time. Check in was efficient & in minutes I was heading to my room. As I got out of the elevator there was a very loud noise coming from a party in one of the rooms and my first thought was that my night's sleep was going to be ruined. Thankfully after about 10 minutes of being in my room someone must have come up and either thrown the group out or made sure that they kept quiet because the noise stopped and there wasn't a sound after that.
The hotel is being offered as an investment opportunity for people to buy either on a timeshare or full ownership basis. The rooms are modern & appealing, the bathrooms very bright & the bed was indulgently comfortable.
Complimentary coffee & muffins together with other breakfast offerings were available in the morning in a room just off from reception which was a good touch. Complimentary chilled bottles of water were also available.
Definitely a hotel to recommend, well located, friendly & extremely comfortable.

The place has no parking and is poorly designed. Functional rooms, barely adequate staff. The valet parking is a joke. you are forced to carry your things around the block to the entrance of hotel. the bathroom is decent but there is no room for your things. the only compliment I can give is the wifi and location were good. I would not recommend this place in fact I would avoid it altogether.

Room Tip: choose different hotel

Hotel Zero 1 is what I believe they call a "design hotel" meaning that they look attractive but are a bit streamlined in their operatrion (e.g. no pool, concierge, etc) but for what they lack in service they gain in comfort. The room was spacious, attractive and comfortable. The views were also nice.

I think this hotel is good for stays of a few days because it's centrally located, and come with kitchenette where you can save on restaurants by eating in.

The only thing that you should consider when booking this place is you basically have to take valet parking for 23 dollars a night and what they call a light breakfast is really a coffee and a muffin.

Overall a very nice hotel.

Room Tip: ask for a corner room

The four of us were glad we booked this hotel for our stay in Montreal. Yes, it's low budget, and we could have afforded somewhere grander, but the rooms were clean and well presented and the location could hardly be bettered. The rooms are, however, painted black (or maybe it's very dark brown) and could be improved a great deal by painting them plain white. Black means that you can't easily see what you've dropped on the floor. Not much storage space but we usually live out of our suitcase anyway. Microwave oven but we didn't use it. Rather weak shower but okay. The very wobbly toilet seat was something I fixed myself by reaching underneath and tightening the wingnuts. A pity that they have no restaurant but I think the website implies that one is planned for the future. Breakfast is therefore a serve-yourself selection of nice little muffins, and coffee. Look from your window and you may be alarmed when you see what looks like a very seedy downmarket area of town outside, with lots of graffiti and broken and boarded up buildings. You'e also adjacent to the red light area, a street of sex shops which for some reason are covered in grime, the windows never washed. Don't worry, it's all harmless. You feel quite safe, and you can ignore the occasional alcoholic vagrant who talks loudly to himself as he shambles along (there aren't many of these and they can be found anywhere in Montreal, and they don't do any harm). The smell of cannabis is present in some of the nearby streets but that seems to be a Montreal thing and I'm noticing it in central London (UK) too, so no worries. In one direction you'll see the big gate for the entrance to Chinatown. Go through the gate, keep going and you'll get to the delightful Old Quarter with its cobbled streets, about 10 minutes of brisk walking to get there. If you go in the opposite direction (the street of sex shops and sex cinemas) and then bear to the left, ten minutes walk will get you to a huge shopping mall with everything you could want including Baton Rouge (excellent ribs and steaks) and Eggspectation, the best place to have your breakfast with a fantastic array of egg dishes and delectable fruit smoothies.

Great little trendy hotel close to Old Montreal. Very modern rooms - some are apparently very small but we had upgraded and found it to be a very nice size.

Just coffee, apples and muffins for breakfast but the coffee is excellent and the muffins will tide you over until you find something later on in the day. Nice terrace on the 5th floor to enjoy a coffee or a glass of wine.

No onsite parking and the valet's we had were a little unorganized so be prepared to wait for your car if you need it (and confirm that you are on the list if it doesn't show up in 20 min)

All in all a nice place

I stayed at the Zero 1 for three different trips to Montreal and found all of them enjoyable.
I like the rooms with the fridge and even if I dont use it, the microwave.
The bathroom is clean and big enough.
It is a modern look which can be very dark if I had to stay in the room all day.
I dont like the lack of parking space for the checking. In a sunny day no problems but rainy/snowy days it is a pain. They have a valet parking I used after they change the car park space in the side street.
I always ask for a room on the St Catherine side and it is very calm except during students strikes!!!

we found the hotel to be in a great location, near all the points we wanted to see and close to metro lines. the rooms are small but had everything we needed and it all worked well. Coffee and muffins provided for breakfast and a small supermarket under the hotel for wine and snacks etc. The only negatives are small bath towels, perhaps to complement the size of the room, and the lady arrived to clean our room at 5.10pm which is a little late in the day.
