Hotel Terrasse Royale
Ranked #82 of 165 Hotels in Montreal
Reviewed August 7, 2013

This is the only hotel in that part of town. It is "ok". I feel that at 224$ a night (4 people) plus 15$ parking plus taxes, it is somewhat expensive for the room quality. The bathroom and kitchenette is completely renovated while the rest of the room isn't. I am used to a higher standard in hotel rooms and do not plan to return.

don't be deceived by the look of the outside, inside the room was wonderful! Great air conditioned comfort in this large room over-looking Rue Corte-de-Neiges. Close to bus, metro, and cab stations. Staff very friendly and very happy to help

I stayed here while visiting my son at the University of Montreal, a few minutes drive away. I loved this hotel. It was nice and quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful and all front desk staff spoke well in both French and English. The kitchenette was updated and well equipped. There is a large grocery store across the street that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So, you can save a lot on not eating out all the time. The bathroom was updated and very clean. The Wi Fi worked well. The suite was large, clean and comfortable. The location is excellent - a couple minutes walk to St. Joseph Oratory and on a street with many shops, restaurants, stores, bakeries, a mall, and close bus/metro stops. There was also convenient underground parking. This is an excellent place to stay if you have a family with children.

I give this hotel a "very good" rating because it is surrounded by incredible bakeries ( Pain Dore and Premiere Moisson) and tucked away cafes and bistros. The location would not easily be discovered by someone new to Montreal and yet it is easy to reach being right on the subway line ( Cote-des-Neiges). The subway is directly across from the hotel. Bus stop and taxi stand almost at the door also ensures quick access to wherever you want to go so I do like this place as an alternative to expensive and often small and somewhat dingy downtown hotels. about 15 $ for a cab from Central Station to the hotel but now I get the subway right to the door. I have stayed here 3 times and on my first stay I had the best room - really large with two beds, comfortable sitting area. A fridge was put in the room at my request ; since then I have had rooms with kitchenettes without having asked for it specifically. There is a nice little market and an awesome Fine Foods grocer near the hotel. Rooms were always clean but to date I have not stayed in a renovated room so I would say the rooms are quite worn. Caulking worn off around the bathtub and carpets are definitely worn out. Somehow the area makes up for this. The best is the Library bistro called "Olivieri" adjacent to the hotel - this is a true hidden gem that I cannot say enough about. I would almost say that I would stay at Terrasse Royale so as to be able to eat at Librairie Olivieri. St. Huberts right next door to the other side ( I dined there once and regretted it - have chosen happily to pay up for Olivieri after that !).
There is no lobby in the hotel - just a check in desk - staff are sometimes chatty sometimes cranky. Not exceptional by any means ! There is a very small space where one can buy breakfast in the morning but why do that when there are 4 or 5 top notch bakeries just steps away !. This is not a high end hotel with "chain" hotel comforts but it has honest value and a "best kept secret" location. If there were a better hotel in the same area I would probably try it out but there are none to my knowledge. At 109$ a night this is definitely good value for the Montreal hotel scene.

Room Tip: Try to avoid any rooms not yet renovated.

My wife and I have motored from New Brunswick to stay here many times in the last four years staying from one to twenty-one nights. The area is like a sweet French village with multiple fruit markets, bakeries,and restaurants. It's located just up the street from the subway and a taxi stand.
One previous reviewer has mentioned construction noise but it should be pointed out that the result is an upgraded facility at a modest rate. The underground parking is excellent and reasonably priced. Add to this a very friendly staff and "what's not to like".

Hotel Terrasse Royale, Montreal, has to be the best-kept secret in that city!
Perhaps because it is quite far from the downtown area that most tourists tend to frequent.
But: it is just a couple of blocks away from Montreal's greatest tourist attraction: St. Joseph's Oratory! And: it is conveniently serviced both by bus and Metro (subway).
For a fraction of the price you would pay in one of those tourist-trap hotels in Centre-Ville (downtown), you can get an entire suite --- living room (with convertible sofa), bedroom, and kitchenette. With the kitchenette, you can do your own cooking, and save on those restaurant bills! However, there are plenty of restaurants in the neighborhood: French, Japanese, Vietnamese, you name it. (Avoid the nearby Spanish restaurant: it is frequented by professional pickpockets, imported from Paris!) There is a supermarket right across the street, open 24 hours/day. Post office branch also across the street. Taxis are plentiful, and there is a taxi stand around the corner. Nearby is beautiful Mount Royale Park and Beaver Lake. Also the great cemetery Cote des Neiges, if you're into cemeteries! The Oratory is well worth a visit, both for its spectacular architecture and for its world-famous organ.
Tip: reserve your room well in advance: the total number of suites is less than 50.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms in the corner(s). Those are the largest suites.
