“Lovely place in Old Montreal”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Le Petit hotel was a lovely place to stay in Old Montreal. The hotel and surroundings had a lot of charm. Hotel staff was welcoming and helpful, and breakfast was included. The place lives up to its name, but if you are looking for a personal experience in Montreal, this is an excellent choice.

We stayed at Le Petit Hotel for three nights in July, 2013. Saturday morning, we disembarked the M.S. Maasdam. The walk from the cruise terminal to to the hotel was easy, just three blocks. We arrived at 10 am, and of course our room was not yet available but the staff was quite happy to store our bags until check in, allowing us to spend the day exploring Old Montreal, The hotel itself was as advertised, small, hip, and modern. Our medium sized room was well-appointed and quite comfortable. My one small quibble is that the king bed's mattress was a little softer than I like. The hotel's location was perfect, not just because of the close proximity to the cruise terminal and the rest of the waterfront, but also because it is surrounded by Old Montreal's wonderful art galleries and restaurants, and just a short walk from subway and bus lines to take you anywhere else in Montreal. Prior to our stay we were deciding between Le Petit and another highly-rated place two blocks down the street, Hotel Nelligan. We chose Le Petit because of the added value of included continental breakfast, This proved to be a particularly helpful feature on our last morning, as we had a quick and delicious breakfast right in the lobby prior to leaving for the airport. The front desk made the arrangements the night before, and a taxi was waiting for us 5 minutes before our requested scheduled departure. I would recommend Le Petit Hotel to anyone planning a stay in Montreal.

We stayed here both due to its proximity to the Bell Centre as well as its location in the heart of Old Montreal. The rooms are stylish and quite comfortable with an amply sized restroom as well as comfortable beds with fresh linens. The hotel is a small (true to its name) boutique hotel so do not expect an attached 5 star restaurant with room service, however, there is a small cafe in the lobby as well as a continental breakfast in the morning. The service was excellent and the location impossible to beat (a short 2 block walk to the Notre Dame Basilica) as well as numerous restaurants and cafes.

Overall a great experience in a hotel loaded with character that we would be happy to return to in the future.

All of the staff was so friendly and competent. They were able to direct us to everything we wanted to do in the community including attractions and dining. The hotel was quite comfortable and pleasantly decorated. It was a treat to walk into the reception area with the large orange lamp. Our room was quite nice. The bed was luxurious, we liked the shower a lot, and the housekeeping was good. The morning breads were quite good. The location is within walking distance of many places as well as a short walk to the metro if you want to take a trip to the biodome or botanical gardens. We would return and recommend without hesitation!.

This hotel is centrally located near all the lovely sights of Montreal's old city.
The service was good. Breakfast was delightful. The rooms were modern and clean.
The gym is at a neighboring hotel.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed there for three nights June, 2013. It was a great stay. The room was spacious on the top floor. A modern decor. Comfortable king bed and nice chairs. Great location right in the middle of Old Montreal. We will be back. Give it a try, you will think you are in France!

Room Tip: Top floor and on the Main Street

The hotel itself is very nice: well located in the beautiful old part of Montreal. The furnishings are modern and very comfortable. We could only get medium rooms -- the large ones were all taken -- but they were much more spacious than I expected and very nice. I can't say enough about the staff -- they had a lot to do, but went out of their way to be helpful, and always in a completely cheerful and friendly way. All in all, this was possibly the most enjoyable of many, many hotel experiences I've had.
