The hotel location is close to perfect, just couple of steps from Chinatown and two blocks away from two subway stations. By taxi it's roughly a 30-50 minute drive (40 CAD) from Trudeau International depending on traffic. Vieux-Montreal is easy to access, maybe 10 minute walk and also downtown is in walking distance (15 minutes). The hotel is definitely cool and trendy but on the other hand after couple of nights the black walls and black ceiling (and the large yellow mirror next to the bed!) starts to feel a bit uncomfortable. Especially when the room itself is quite small.
Basic things are in good order; bed is comfy, the room was kept clean and there was hardly any noise from the street. However this might not be the case at lower levels. I stayed at 12th floor. The lack of breakfast except for a complimentary cup of coffee and a muffin was bit of a disappointment. This is not a major problem since there's a supermarket with comprehensive selection just 200 meters away and the room was equipped with microwave, fridge, basic dishes and cutlery.
Would I recommend hotel Zero 1 is a tricky question. If you are looking for an efficient and reasonably priced hotel with excellent access to both Montreal sights and business district, then definitely. Just be aware that like someone else commented earlier, it's a true "Blade Runner" experience!
