“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

The hotel is right in the middle of the old town, quite difficult to negotiate with a car as there were road works all around. The hotel receptionist was very helpful in directing us. The room we had was on the top floor with an enormous balcony where we have a wonderful view of Montreal. Very clean and comfortable room. The food at dinner was first class, and although the restaurant was full (booking advised) the service was impeccable. My only criticism was that, as the restaurant was full, they put in extra tables and ours was right by the A/C outlet which blew out cold air. I asked for it to be turned off, which they did, but after some time someone asked for it to be turned on, and again I requested it to be reduced, and they willingly obliged. The choice of menu was very good as was breakfast the following morning. As we were getting on a cruise ship in the afternoon, they stored our luggage for us. Would have liked to stay longer.

I am a world traveler, having spent several years as flight attendant and most recently traveling with family and friends. Sometimes a big chain hotel is just what you need - all you want is comfort and everything to work well. BUT sometimes you are looking for something special, more than a place to stay, something in addition to the destination that will make your trip a very lovely memory. We found that at Auberge Bonaparte in Old Montreal. The key here is the personnel. In particular, Sabrina made every effort to accomodate us. We originally made a reservation downtown but we were so turned off by the indifference to our requests we looked elsewhere. Sabrina immediately conveyed warmth and a genuine interest in responding to my requests and believe me I do have high expectations. The hotel is quaint but well working and quiet and the bar and restaurant have a lovely ambiance. Kudos also to Jonathon and the bar staff for great service. Talking with Sabrina about her job she mentioned feeling like it was her "house" and that the employees work together. That makes a difference - we will definitely go back.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 407 - didn't hear a sound. Limited shelf space in bathroom but room was large...

This boutique hotel in Old Montreal exceeded our expectations. The courtesy of staff and Michael's touring suggestions were appreciated. All first class from the excellent restaurant and bar to the up to date rooms and bathrooms. Very clean and spacious. We'll definitely stay here again and recommend to friends and family!

Room Tip: Corner room had view of Notre Dame.

We stayed at the end of a touring holiday in US and Canada. We chose this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Although parking was available nearby, at an additional cost, which is standard in Montreal, we decided to return our hire car in arrival and take a taxi to the airport a couple of days later, which proved to be a very good decision as we were able to store our luggage in the hotel, make full use of our last day and have a stress free journey to the airport. The a Hotel is very well situated in the heart of Old Montreal and is close to all the main attractions as well as the shopping streets.
We were travelling with another couple. We had booked one of the two Terrace rooms. We had imagined this would be on the ground floor. In fact it was in the top floor and gave lovely views over the Cathedral tower and gardens. Although it was early October it was warm and sunny and we enjoyed drinks out there in the evenings. It must be even better in the summer. The en suite had a jacuzzi bath, which was very welcome after a hard day's sightseeing. The other couple had a room overlooking the gardens on a lower floor, which was slightly larger than ours. We both thought it was worthwhile booking rooms on the garden side of the hotel because the hotel,is on a bustling street. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were well appointed, and everything was spotlessly clean.
The hotel has an excellent restaurant, and we had two of the best meals we had had all holiday. The steaks are particularly good and cooked to perfection. The set meal is very good value given the quality of food, food choices and its location in the heart of Old Montreal.
The hotel is run by Michael, the Marketing Director, who,liaises closely with the owner. We had experienced one or two problems over restaurant bookings. These had not escaped Michael's eagle eye and he resolved them quickly and generously without our even making a complaint. I wish all hotels were so well ru

Thanks to all the other Trip Advisor reviewers - your recommendations for Auberge Bonaparte lived up to expectations. The location was ideal for us having just come arrived in Montreal from a cruise, so we walked to the hotel. Our room wasn't ready so early in the morning of course, but it was no trouble to leave our bags and we picked up a map and lots of recommendations about what to see - where the closest metro was (just a short walk) and off we went.

Coming back at the end of a full day exploring, check in was a breeze and our bags had been delivered to our comfortable room. Only negative - no fridge, but not a major issue as an ice-bucket (ice machine outside the lift on the top floor) worked well to chill a thirst quenching beer bought from just down the road.

We decided not to dine in, so chose a restaurant in the old town and during the meal got chatting to some locals who recommended, would you believe it ..... Restaurant Bonaparte. Although they were fully booked the next night, they did take our booking and we had a lovely meal.

I would definitely recommend Auberge Bonaparte for anyone visiting Montreal - great location in the old town, breakfast included and a nice feel about the place - so much nicer than the large hotels.

Located in the Old Town Montreal, it's perfect location for walking anywhere worth seeing. Although some reviewers mentioned that the street side room was noisy, we didn't find that to be true. The room is large, well appointed, beds comfy. Bathroom also a good size, w/a whirlpool tub. NICE after a long day sightseeing. We were in Room 308 and I wouldn't mind it again. The restaurant for the included breakfast had more offerings than I thought they would, Waiters are a little rough if you don't attempt to speak some French, if you do, service improves. Most of all I have to give kudos to the concierge, Michael Banks. Found out we liked martinis & every restaurant he booked us in had a martini waiting. Nice touch! He's a gem and I hope they do everything to keep him.

Room Tip: Room 308 was facing the street, but the noise wasn't bad. Mostly heard the clipclop of horses go...
