“Friendly staff, great location, beautiful room, delicious breakfast”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Our road-trip to Montreal from NYC was our first family vacation with our toddler. We picked this hotel after seeing reviews calling it both a modern boutique hotel and great for families. The two descriptions didn't necessarily go together, but this was absolutely the case. A great location in Old Montreal, and lounging near the window of the French balcony was a perfect early evening tradition. (The good people watching does mean some loudness outside your room later in the evening.) Most importantly, though, and no exaggeration: Le Petit Hotel has one of the friendliest, if not the most friendly, hotel staffs I've ever encountered. We were offered help with our luggage before I even exited the car, and by the time I arrived inside, my daughter's name had been communicated to the desk staff who welcomed her by name.

Breakfast was great - and I am thankful that my daughter was introduced to real croissants - clearly they work with a great local bakery. (And thus my daughter learned one of her first words: "possonk" - hey, close enough.) We got an "extra large room" and it really was impressive. It is not a suite, meaning there are not two rooms joined together, so instead imagine a very large room, with a table for eating, a sofa, TV, huge bed, and huge windows with lots of light. But it felt more like a small apartment than a hotel, which helped make us feel even more at home.

Note that there are steps you must go up to enter the hotel at the main entrance (tricky with a stroller), and our room also had steps going up inside the door, which is quite unusual (I'm not sure how many rooms are like this, though). Keep the latter in mind if you have a child since you may need to bring a gate for your room to protect him/her from falling down the short flight (5-6 steps) of stairs. We employed the "stay away from there, honey!" method.

I want to emphasize how friendly the staff was. If you have any worry of attitude (even justified attitude at your not speaking their language!), don't worry about it. First of all, there were people who spoke English just fine. But more importantly, they were nothing but generous in their willingness to help and we saw constant smiles every time we passed by the front desk. The hotel is not cheap (at least, for the long time we stayed), but I would stay here again in a minute. Le Petit Hotel and all those who work there played a major part in making our first family vacation together a great one, and we are very thankful to them for that.

Room Tip: Snag an extra-large room with French balcony!

My friend and I stayed 3 nights in this excellently located boutique hotel. It is in the heart of old Montreal, close to museums, restaurants, the Basilique Cathedrale Notre-Dame, and the metro. Our room was just right for two friends with the need for two beds. The room was creatively designed, and the cleanliness exceptional. I loved the shower. The hotel staff went out of their way giving us ideas of places to see and experience and helping us find our way in Montreal. Breakfast was just right, especially the cappuccino. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Just had a lovely weekend in Montreal. Staying at Le Petit Hotel was fantastic. Breakfast each day was great. They will provide you with a tray should you decide to bring the breakfast up to you room. We had a Large room and it was a great size, facing the street. 3 or 4 massive windows gave the room nice lighting. The bed was great as well. Staff organized a taxi to take us back to the airport when we left. Would definitely recommend. Lovely hotel with tons of character. Oh and though they don't have a gym, we were told we could use the gym at Hotel Nelligan, which is just a block away.

Room Tip: Get a large room.

Beautiful hotel, small and chic … exactly the way I like it! The extra large room was lovely and loft-like. The bed was fabulously comfortable. The room was spotless. Terrific location! Amazing breakfast! Staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. They took care of our car and our dinner reservations tout de suite! Wonderful place… highly recommend!

we stayed here for one night on our way to quebec city and we were very happy with our choice. the hotel is in a great location and the folks at the front desk were helpful. the room was clean and we loved the wood floors and minimalist decor. the bed was extremely comfortable. we did wish the heat had been turned up just a little bit before our arrival---it took a few hours to get the room to a comfortable temperature. the continental breakfast included yogurt, cereal and muesli, bagels, toast, fresh fruit, and plain and chocolate croissants. it also included an espresso drink and orange juice ordered at the front desk. the woman at the front desk was happy to bring me soy milk for my cereal. we would absolutely stay here again.

Stayed 4 nights. Spacious room. Very comfortable experience. Breakfast and newspapers a definite plus. Staff was very helpful. Carlos at the front desk is an amazing source of suggestions for restaurants and activities. He also made us feel very much at home.

Wonderful boutique hotel located in old Montreal. Amazing bed...huge and comfy. Great spot for exploring art galleries and perfect distance from the Bell Centre to catch a hockey game or concert. The staff was genuinely kind and extremely helpful. The complimentary breakfast had many options and was very delicious. Would love to go back.
