“A must for your trip to Montreal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stay in Vieux Montreal every time we visit. Outstanding historical sights, cool converted loft spaces, high end shops, remarkable dining, character boutique hotels and gallery spaces that rival the best we've seen.

“cool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

It's so old and quaint. Not sure who the crazies are that try to drive down there. They really cleaned up fast after the snowfall

“Charming and improving every year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We first visited Old Montreal in 2002, and have been there nearly every year since. The same interesting historical venues were there then that are there now, but the main Old Montreal street -- Rue St. Paul -- was overrun with cheap tourist shops. This is very much changed, and for the better. The enormous warehouse spaces have been gradually filling with more and more good restaurants and attractive shops. The ambience is moving inexorably, it appears, from "on the seedy side" toward "truly charming and attractive." Highly recommended for all who are looking for a taste of the rich European past that built the city.

“Cool to visit”

Great architecture and very good restaurants. Not inexpensive, but fun. Close to the water as well. Knowing a little French is a plus!

“Quaint old village”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Old Montreal is full of great restaurants, fine art galleries, and gift shops. There are events at the piers all year long. In the summer artisans and musicians sell their wares in the streets. Wonderful place to visit.
