The first thing I noticed is that it had really interesting decor, and looked surprisingly decent for a budget inn. If you've got a packed itinerary, and just need a place to sleep and a quick shower, you're good. We didn't pay extra for breakfast, as there are so many other cheaper and better options just about a block away. Especially liked that it was close to Latin Quarter, an area with a bunch of fun restaurants, bars and shops. Kind of equivalent to a smaller Haight-Ashbury of San Francisco, or St. Marks of NYC. Just be extra careful when it's really late at night, and when no one is around as there are a lot of beggars, homeless people, and druggies walking about. That might be why one of the reviewers wrote that the back door on their room looked like it was tampered with. If you're from a big city, you probably won't be deterred by this. Overall, the place did the job.
The only thing that PISSED me off was that on the third day I get a call from my bank saying that the credit card that I had used at the front desk had been used to purchase a whole lot of stuff online from merchants in Montreal! I didn't want to make a big deal since 1. I didn't want to ruin our holiday, 2. I didn't have concrete evidence to blame any of the many front desk people who changed according to shifts, 3. I didn't have time to waste to deal with this BS and 4. I could get a refund. Hence, I reminded myself to share with all you kind folks out there to be extra careful when giving your credit card to the front desk of this inn. It could happen anywhere, but the person who did this may still be working there, so please be cautious about your credit card information here. Try to pay by cash if possible.
