“Simply awsome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

The hotel is very new and stylish: it seems a "stylist boutique"; the room was great (even if I booked the standard room): the bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. The shower is the top (try it!!).
Breakfast was quite small, but overall good.

Very individual style (you hate or love it) and very friendly staff. in the mid of town, very central located. Actual there is work in progress in the neighbourhood. Therefore a bit noisy during daytimes.

If you're going to Montreal and want to stay away from the standard hotels, this cool boutique hotel is just for you. Very incognito from the outside. Right off of St. Catherines, rue Drummond was surprisingly peaceful.

As soon as you walk into Chez Swann, you feel like you're inside a gallery. The lights, the furniture, the movie playing on the wall, the big wood logs give it its cool vibe. There are three types of rooms: les mondaines, demi-mondaines, and boudoirs. We had the demi-mondaine and it was huge! If this was in New York it would be ridiculously priced. The furniture in the room is SO NICE. Especially the velvet chair. The colour scheme was very art deco, think dark green and fuscia, but somehow it all made sense.

Best feature in the room: the shower--you can fit a party of 10 in here..i'm serious...it is massive...two shower heads and massage jets

The staff were really nice. I asked for an iron and he brought it up right away. I asked for tea, and they brought me hot water. If you drove here, there is a parking lot two minutes from the hotel. They give you a discount coupon if you're staying at the hotel but it is still 20$/night to park.

*side note: It was always bright in the morning, as the ceilings don't prevent the natural light from coming through so if you don't want to be woken up, cover your eyes!

This place looked wonderful online and it lived up to our expectations. The rooms have a fun funky styling and the showers in the bathroom are very spacious and modern. The hotel is small so you feel like you're the only people staying there sometimes. The location is very attractive because you are in walking distance to many bars, restaurants, shops, and night clubs. There is also a Bixi bike rental kiosk right at the front door. We rented bikes one day to cruise down to Old Montreal. There is construction going on next door, it didn't bother me, but if you are a light sleeper, keep that in mind. The people at the front desk are very helpful in recommending food and activities and were always friendly. There are not many amenities at this hotel, so do not go there if you want a gym and pool, but if you just want a nice quiet place to stay in a central location, this hotel will work for you. The price was also attractive compared to other downtown hotels.

Room Tip: The suites facing the street on Drummond are very spacious with double showers and are a bit quieter

A really stylish hotel, nice big rooms and awesome bathroom. It has its very special flair and is totally different to standard hotels - simply a boutique hotel. The staff was very friendly and did not hesitate to explain the WHOLE city. As a veggie I did not know where to go for food, the lady showed me like 4 places for dinner.
breakfast is pretty good and french but don't be late! If you arrive at 9:50 it might be gone already (even if it says breakfast till 10).
PS: perfect location if you wanna party a lot and watch hockey! The Bell Center is like 300 m away and good pubs are just around the corner!

There's a construction site just next to this hotel wall (another hotel) and it will be going till 2015. The very loud noise starts at 7am on the morning, and we even had some loading going at midnight. It was just terrible.
I guess the weekends still would be ok, but not the weekdays.

The room was pretty small, but still ok. A nice shower cabin, and comfortable bed.
No coffee nor fridge in the room, be aware!

The service was so-so, nothing special. We had only one bath robe in the room, reported it, nothing has happened. So they are definitely a laid-back people.

Parking - be aware of the parking site they suggest to you - it's a rip-off.
They count by days, not hours, so overnight stay will be charged as 2 days.
Also $4 hotel discount applies only once. Thus for 2 nights I've paid $41.
So I'd suggest to park just behind the hotel (outdoor) for $8 per day.

I will definitely be back to this hip little gem! Very laid back and friendly staff who made check-in and check-out quick and painless, which was great. I had such a comfortable and restful sleep each night and the shower was the ultimate! Plus, the location was phenomenal.
