We booked a 3 day, 2 nights stay for a quick getaway. Glad we found an extremely clean hotel at an affordable price located in downtown Montreal and close access to the metro. Daily housekeeping and clean towels and amenities refilled. Staff was very friendly and helpful in guiding us with attractions and parking directions. There is currently an ongoing festival held until end of Aug at night time located right down the block of the hotel. Attractions include live concerts, comedy sketch, local vendors- beer, treats, food trucks, etc. Or if you prefer- place des arts is right across the street that goes into the Centre Eaton mall. Bags are subject to search at the entrance of the festival. A lot of reviews have noted a sex shop right next door. No worries though, it's not a seedy or sketchy area at all. It's just an adult novelty store but in good taste. A lot of enforcement patrol including security officers are always present across the street and within the proximity of the hotel. Most likely b/c of the festival but the area is safe. My only tip is if you are staying here, be warned that if you are checking in the bottom (lobby) floor can get noisy in the morning. The walls are pretty thin so you can definitely hear conversations and noises. Ask the reception for secure/indoor parking areas. Do not park your car in outdoor garage!! There's been a car theft ring in Montreal where many cars were reported stolen/missing. Park your car in an indoor garage where it is monitored by security cameras/attendants. It is better to be safe than sorry! Metro is located right down the block from the festival. Also, the old Montreal is a walking distance that goes into St. Urban- Chinatown/Little Italy which is literally a 10-15 min walk from the hotel. Thank you Hotel l'Abri du Voyageur for the lovely stay. We'll definitely return again when visiting Montreal!!
