“Awful!!! Stay Away From This Place!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2007

We booked to stay in this B&B this summer.
As soon as we entered the place, we were absolutely shocked.
Dust, cockroaches, bugs, spiders everywhere, brrrrrr…
We couldn’t risk our lives for even one night and ran away immediately!
There are so many less expensive places around. Many hotels offer better service for less money.

We stayed at Alacoque (Revolution BB) on our trip to Montreal in late July 2007.

Price and location were the biggest draws to the place, but as it turns out this has easily been the most expensive hotel stay we've ever experienced.

We had several items stolen from our room at Alacoque while we were out one afternoon. On our return, we learned that the building had been empty and the main entrance was unlocked for several hours that afternoon. On the security camera, we saw someone walk into the building empty-handed and leave a few minutes later with a filled shopping bag.

It was the owner's subsequent behavior that truly astonished us. He took no responsibility, did not offer any compensation/refund, and in fact even refused to call the police when we asked him to (rather he handed us a map of Montreal indicating the nearest police station and told us to walk over and report it).

We hope the owner will be willing to come to some agreement on how to address the situation. We'll let you know how it turns out.

By the law your room is your privacy,your room door was not broken:You don,t lock it. You refuse to provide to me and my insurance companie any receipts or proof of property of the articles stolen:You just ask for cash money: $ 200.00 for a computer, a digital camera and a IPod:Very stange, you are not expensive.We provide a small safe in each room; you never use it. It is a down town location in a major city: We have a video camera system at the front and in the common area.

This B&B was a place to stay and not much more than that. The place was clean but generally looked unkept. The floor was dusty, the mattresses and pillows were old, the towels were worn out, etc. The temperature inside went from humid to chilly, and the room thermostat didn't really work. Breakfast was unimpressive and consisted mostly of croissants (fresh 2 of 4 days) and generic muffins and rolls. The host was less than warm and didn't really make himself available, however the staff serving breakfast was friendly and helpful. The location and free wireless access were the only positives. There are many other B&Bs in Montreal and I will not stay at Alacoque again.

This is a basic B&B in a good central location. It's definitely not a luxury inn, but is clean and cozy. In response to the previous reviewer, the owner isn't particularly warm, but he was courteous, efficient, and helpful.
Pluses: Location (it's not in an amazing area, but within walking distances to everything), parking, interesting antiques, breakfast on the terrace (weather permitting), clean, a/c.
Minuses: Noisy (ie. you can hear footsteps throughout the house), kind of rundown, no cable TV.

Overall, a good value at $100 for 2. We'll go again.

The owner of this business was extremely rude on the phone and refused to take a message for one of his guests who was waiting for my call, even when it was explained to him it was extremely important. He published his phone number on the web but pretended it was his personal phone number. I have never stayed at this establishment but would certainly not recommend his "hospitality". He hung up on me twice. He does not seem to care very much about his customers..

alas...

Infortunatly our rooms are no enough expensive to provide an efficient telephone service, they are no telephone in each room and over 100 telephon calls in 4 days for the same guest is to much for the poor man who take all ''those very importants'' telephon calls on a 24 hours clock.
