“The Vatican for Montrealers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

This is the grand temple of montreal. Montrealers are passionate about their hockey team, and more knowledgeable about hockey than any other city. Little old ladies follow hockey in this town. The place is ALWAYS sold out for hockey, so forget going to the box office. Unlike some other cities, like Toronto, they do not support losers, so you can expect to hear boos if the hometeam is not playing well. But they are playing well, your ears can be blown if the home boys score. It's amazing that so much noise can bve created in such a large building. Expensive tickets, food and beer. Good place for concerts too.

“ice but uncomfortable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

am not a big ockey fan and after having visited the Bell enter in Montreal and being forced to sit in some of the most cramped stadium seating I have ever seen I doubt I will become one. This is a mecca to Hockey no doubt but the exorbitant prices of everything and the cramped seating made it unenjoyable for me.

“Great family night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

We went to a bulldogs hockey match as the tickets were a little cheaper.

Given we were on a 4 day visit and have never seen a hockey match before it was a great way to experience the sport in a terrific venue.

The transport links via metro were very useful. Despite a heavy snow storm we only had to cross the road from our hotel (le Westin) and then the rest of the trip was underground and via covered walkways.

Food prices at the stadium were steep. But no more than is expected at these type of venues.

Great atmosphere despite seeing. A more minor team.

A mini hockey hall of fame. The kids enjoyed it, though it was small.
