Excellent service from all staff who were very helpful. Room was great and the shower out of this world. Close to the old town with lots of restaurants close at hand. Breakfast was lovely served in a very relaxed way in the bar. Pancakes were made to order and there were other items to select from. Would certainly return if we stay in Montreal again.

We stayed here for 4 nights and were very pleased to have done so. I had booked a room overlooking the old port and that is what we got, on the 4th floor. The view was extensive, although you could only see a short stretch of the St Lawrence; most of it is hidden behind an island. The room was very quiet, but one word of caution: a railway line runs along the front a few yards away, and although it does not seem to be heavily used, there seemed to be one very, very long freight train that rumbled through every night in the middle of the night. It was not particularly loud, but the never-ending rumble woke me every night! One other slight irritant concerned the lift/elevator. It was probably the slowest I have ever come across, and since there was only the one, you could expect to wait for it for a considerable time.

Lest this all seem rather negative, let me say that the bedroom was a decent size, the bed very comfortable, the bathroom very well equipped, the shower very powerful, and everything immaculate. The inclusive buffet breakfast was good - although the flasks of coffee seemed to run out rather quickly - and there were cooked items available if you wanted them. All the staff we encountered were unfailingly friendly and helpful.

As for sightseeing - the whole purpose of our stay - the hotel is well situated in the historic heart of Montreal, and there are literally dozens of places to eat within 3 or 4 minutes walk. On the other hand, if you want to explore further afield, the Museum of Fine Arts say, or the Olympic Stadium complex, you will probably have to use the metro. Not a great problem for us, but it will take you 10-15 minutes to walk to the nearest station. Unfortunately the hotel is midway between two of them. Don't miss Mont Royale for a fantastic view over the city, but that will require both the metro and a bus ride (unless you are feeling energetic and want to walk up!)

Dear Guest,
We’re all glad to hear that you enjoyed your time in Montreal and loved the Auberge du Vieux Port.
I reassure you that the elevator is something that management is looking into and agree that it is very slow. We apologize about that.
We are looking forward to welcome you back very soon.

The hotel staff were exceptionally friendly, and the service excellent. I enjoyed the old world charm, but my wife thought it was small and cramped. Our room was on the first floor and had some traffic noise. Breakfast was great, and the bar is lively at night. Just walk out the back door and you are in the middle of the pedestrian old port area, with great restaurants and shops.

Room Tip: Get a room on a higher floor.

We recently stayed at this hotel for a one-night stay in the Old Port section of Montreal. The front-desk and valet staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very nice and quaint - with the exposed brick/stone walls and the fabulous bathroom showers. The breakfast was also great. I would totally stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone asking...

Room Tip: All rooms would be great - just know that the old port in general is not handicap accessible due to...

From everyone we encountered that works there to the romantic rooms with wonderful multi jetted showers and an outstanding breakfast, I just can't express what a great stay we had there! The location was also perfect.

Just completed a three night stay at the Auberge du Vieux Port. It was our first visit to the city and we were very pleased with the location, the hotel and it's staff. We agree that our room was small in some details ( one sink bathroom but huge shower with great rain shower plus wall jets). The room was narrow but wide enough for a king size bed night stands corner lounge chair and desk and chair. The linens on the bed were good quality. Our only concern was that the sheets did not stay tucked in and therefore could be bothersome during the night. The food was quite good at the restaurant next to the hotel (Gaspar). The hotel location lends itself to exploring the city whether by foot, bike, bus or boat.

Room Tip: The elevator can be slow. Work off the morning crepes or croissants and use the stairs next to the...
