“Good Location,Bad Night of Sleep”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

I jumped on the LivingSocial.com deal on a 50% deal and was very glad that I only stayed for one night! The location of the hotel is ideally situated close to restaurants and downtown. However,there is a narrow long flight of stairs to climb up to the reception area and another flight of stairs to my room;it would be a challenge for those with knee problems or heavy luggage.Night Time noise was horrendously loud with the loud beat of a nearby disco till 3+ am making sleep impossible,do bring a super good earplugs(which I did but it did not help).Carol at the front desk was friendly but I sense the rest of the staff not friendly towards non-francophone customers.The room were quite clean.

Room Tip: Bring a good good ear plug,and light luggage for climbing up the long flight of stairs

We are pleased that you appreciated our prime and convenient location but disappointed that you did not have a good night’s sleep. We pride ourselves in our customer service and love responding to the needs of our international clientèle. Being located on the second floor of a historic building, it is not possible to have an elevator and thus the hotel is not handicapped accessible. However, we gladly help guests with their luggage when requested. I realize that there can be some street noise for guests having a room facing the main avenue when there are special activities on weekends. However, it is most unusual to have music permeate till 3am since there are no full time discothèques in our immediate area and the noise bylaw is midnight. Of course, for light sleepers, we do have rooms facing the back, though many of our regular guests love and request the street view. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again in the future.

The lobby can be reached by ascending quite a few steps, so carrying a heavy suitcase a bit of a hassle. The rooms are clean, small and noisy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated right next to a sex shop in an interesting part of downtown. The hotel offers good value for a short business stay.

The single standard room are our most compact rooms but remain the best value. If on a future trip, you would like a larger room with more amenities, our hotel also has superior rooms and studio apartments and these are ideal for business travelers and tourists alike. We are pleased that you appreciated our prime location, the cleanliness of our rooms and its great value.

Thank you to all your amazing staff for making my 6 night stay the best it could be. Just a hop skip and jump to shops, old montreal, metro, conference centre.
Rooms were super clean and comfortable.
Fantastic value for money ... Free wifi was a bonus
My room was a little bit noisy on Friday and Saturday night but my colleagues in other rooms said they didn't hear a thing.
I cannot speak highly enough of this place ... I will definetly stay again.
Thank you David and Zac :-)

We pent 2 nights (Oct 4-5) at this hotel. We booked it based on great reviews and we were not disappointed. Thanks to David and staff for their hospitality and help. The room was very clean and when we enquired about ice, they had run out. The hotel staff actually walked the 2 blocks to a convenience store and bought us ice. Thank you !!!

If you are looking for a nice clean and quiet hotel close to the action with staff that care ... try this one.

Just spent 8 nights at the Quartier des Spectacles. Would like to thank Carole, david, zac & Wally for thier help & hospitality.
If you are a pretentious snob who expects everything to be new & sparkly then you may want to go elsewhere, for that matter you may want to avoid Montreal altogether. People staying at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth @ $289/night agreed our room was nicer.
Right in the heart of everything, theaters across the street, china-town 2 blocks away, Old Montreal was a 10min stroll, and being right on St.Catherines is nice.
Wally was working on cleaning up and repairing the terrace area while we were there and there are continuous improvements being made. We had room 211a with a street view, one double one single, private bath & kitchen, A/C worked great.

Next time I'm in Montreal I know where I'll be staying...

The staff were courteous, friendly and gave us a good run down of the city which gave us a good start. As mentioned by others, the brickwork and other details from the original structure add an interesting element.
The location is prime for just about everything tourist related.
Only minor complaint is there wasn't one of those small fridges that you usually see in a hotel room.
Maybe there was a communal fridge (like you often see at hostels) that I didn't know about or bother asking about.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in September 2013, I can't rate it highly enough - our room was big, clean and comfortable, and great value for money for such a prime location to discover Montreal. Right in the arts/theatre district, it's a 10 minute walk to Vieux Montreal / Vieux Port, and a stone's throw from the Latin Quarter / the Village and Downtown. The staff were all extremely helpful - we'd had a bad experience with flight (and bag) delays on our way and they were also very flexible and accommodating. We'll definitely stay here again.
