Stayed for a long weekend & had a lovely room (3rd floor) over-looking lively Rue St.Paul. Very stylish rooms & decor in common areas. Fantastic breakfast included, as well as complimentary use of 2 bikes for exploring Old Montreal. Service was second to none - very helpful and friendly staff!

This is a charming "boutique" hotel in Old Montreal. The furniture is sleek and modern, yet our room had exposed brick and stone structural components that make the most of the centuries-old structure of the building itself. Our room (201, I think) was fairly large considering the downtown location. Everything was spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable. All staff were friendly and helpful without exception. The continental breakfast was nice, but nothing special. However, my wife had a made-to-order cappuccino that she described as "awesome!" The location can't be beat. Because of the location on Rue St. Paul, restaurants, shopping, art galleries, etc. are all right outside the door. Just a short walk to Place Jacques Cartier, the Old Port, Notre Dame and more. The valet parking service was great but, if you are driving, be aware that there is a daily charge for parking of around $20 per day. The only criticism we really had, was that the wireless signal in our room was weak (we really needed to be on the bed to use it) and slow. This was not a real problem for us, but might be for business travelers. Signal might be better in other rooms.
Overall, we had a great stay at Le Petit Hotel and would stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 201. No view. Large windows open to an alley below. We found it to be very quiet c...

Le Petit hotel is right in the heart of the Old City of Montreal. It’s small with only 28 rooms. Although the staff were very friendly and helpful with good restaurant and bar recommendations, the rooms themselves left something to be desired. The bath room was very small and not well lit. Room in general was dark. Bed plenty comfortable. Being in Montreal for four nights, we walked around the Old City and waterfront plenty and checked out hotels for our next stay. We found a few we would prefer to book next time.

Room Tip: Go for an upper floor room - our friends got a first floor room and the noise from a fan (HVAC?) in...

Our start with this hotel wasn't great as our GPS couldn't find it (east/west street problem) but once we did it turns out it is in a great location, really central within easy walking distance to the sights, trains, the old town and lots of restaurants. The staff in the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely, spacious, had a fantastic shower and really lovely toiletries. The breakfast provided was also good with a nice selection and newspapers provided. They provide car parking but it is a bit expensive.

My husband and I stayed here for a few days before going to Quebec City. Enjoyed staying in the historical section of downtown Montreal. A stay at the hotel includes breakfast. We loved the coffee and croissants. During the day we would tour the city and then come back and discuss with the staff about a place for dinner. Everyone was very helpful. A suggestion is to go to the rooftop of Hotel Nelligan for a drink

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the hotel are quieter.

I travel a lot for work and to make it more exciting I always try to stay in a great preferably boutique hotel and add a day or two of vacation to all my trips.
So far I about 5 favorite hotels in the world and this is one of them.
Everything about this hotel is just perfect!
LOCATION: in most interesting part of Montreal -Old Montreal, on St.Paul's street. Part of the street is really touristy and a bit cheesy yet Le Petit is on a more quite stretch past the touristy spot.
It is also within 5-10 min from subway station and right next to the canals and bike path.

SERVICE: That is absolutely the top. Especially two guys: Carlos and Guy are super helpful and knowledgeable about the city. On the way to the room guy gave me my internet password and other info before I even asked. They prepare two bikes for us (NO CHARGE).
Someone also brought us a cupcake with caramel and vanilla frosting because it was close to my wedding anniversary.

ROOMS: Super comfortable, spacious, quite. Beautifully decorated and designed with exposed brick or stone walls. Romantic yet classy. Pure elegance. (I stayed in 412 -highly recommend!)

BREAKFAST: free and delicious-coffee, croissants, fresh fruit , yogurt all what you need to hit the town.

Every member of the small, but passionate and energetic, staff that we encountered provided a level of service comparable to a five star hotel, trapped inside a three star body. Great suggestions for various activities and dining options.

One of our children has a severe nut allergy. When we asked about the origin of the pastries at breakfast the first of three days that we recently stayed at the hotel, we were told that they couldn't guarantee what they had was nut free or had been contaminated. We were also politely scolded for not telling them ahead of time, so that they could prepare.

When we came back to the hotel that evening, the front desk clerk politely greeted us and asked if we were in room 407 (which is the amazing family room that has been mentioned in other reviews), told us that they had secured "certified" nut free bread for our child for the next morning and were trying to get cereal too.

This was the first time that I have ever experienced this type of unsolicited service at a hotel. It only comes from a true commitment to service. Lesson learned, provide advance notice. Can't say enough great things about the hotel or the staff.

Room Tip: Room 407 perfect for family of four.
