I booked this hotel due to the cheap rates which were especially cheap when I paid up front. I later read about the location being next to a sex shop and wondered whether I'd made a good choice. As it turned out, I needn't have worried. Whilst I wouldn't normally choose to stay next to 'Erotika Boutique' (and the friends we met up with had a laugh about this) the hotel itself presents as very respectable inside and the location was perfect for the jazz festival (the main stage was a two minute walk away). It is only a short walk to the old town too. Our room (a double with shared bathroom) turned out to be just as the pictures portrayed it. It was clean and airy with a sink and a noisy but effective air conditioning unit. We never queued for showers and found the shared bathrooms, which are equipped with modern white suites, to be spotlessly clean. We chose not to get breakfast included in the deal and there are several cafes within two minutes walk of the hotel. The staff were friendly and gave us some good recommendations regarding what to see in Montreal in a day. Check in and out was quick and easy and the only negative was having to carry our luggage up the stairs. We found parking for $20 per day at a parking lot one block south of the hotel but you can pull up closer to the hotel on boulevard st Laurent to unload first. We would happily stay here again if we return to Montreal and we would recommend to anyone travelling n a budget unless you have children with you.
