We were in Montreal for less than 24 hours and chose this hotel because it was cheap (around $75 in April), in a good location, and had a lot of character. It is located in two converted mansions. It is dated, but very cool. If you like old buildings, and especially old houses you will like Hotel Ambrose. It still maintains a lot of the characteristics of it's 19th century self.
There are a lot of stairs which can by quite awkward. I consider myself to be in pretty good shape, but I was quite winded by the time I got to my second floor room with all the going up and down and back up and around the spiral staircase with my suitcase. It made for a good workout.
They do have parking in the back which was nice - this way we could leave our car and enjoy ourselves in the city on foot. I didn't try the continental breakfast, but my friend did and she was not impressed. I don't think people go to hotels for continental breakfasts anyway though...
The room we were in was small but functional. The bed was fine and I slept well. We weren't able to control the AC, but it was an unusually warm day in April and opening the windows helped with the stuffiness. I peeked in the room next to use when the door was open for cleaning the next day and it was really cute with a fireplace. So it's nice to know that every room is different with it's own bit of charm.
We were able to walk from the hotel to Old Montreal, Mount Royal, the business districts, China Town, and tons of restaurants. So if you're looking for a place to stay where you don't have to drive, this is it.
Overall, I was very pleased with Hotel Ambrose. Next time I'm in Montreal this will be my hotel.
