Car was broken into during the night. Nothing of value was visible within the vehicle, so someone decided to smash our window for "fun." $250 bill to repair the window on our car for a $60 hotel...

Long walk from the main downtown strip. If you want to enjoy the nightlife and have a few drinks with your significant other we found this hotel to be too far out of the way. You will be looking over your shoulder under the sparse lights.

Bathroom smelt of urine.

I should have listened to that nagging feeling as soon as we pulled up. Spend the extra $20 and go somewhere else!

We stayed here for one night and were very satisfied with our stay. The room and building were clean, no musty smell! The location was great, basically 10 min walk to Old Montreal, Rene Levesque, St. Catherines St. The staff were nice, we checked in late after calling and updating them with our arrival time. The staff helped me find free street parking. Overall great place if you are on a budget and don't need a modern room. Will definitely be coming back here

Spent a few nights at this hotel for a budget trip. Hotel staff were excellent, and we were able to get free street parking. Breakfast was tea/coffee juice, crossiants, and muffin. TV was small and dated, fridge in room worked, a/c was fine.

Room was fine for what we needed, had a good night sleep. Bedding was clean.

Only complaint it could have been vaccumed and dusted a bit better.

Location was great - 5 min to Old Montreal, subway was close, lots of restaurants, cafes, bars, grocery store all close. We walked from our hotel to downtown in about 20 mins.

Good for a place to sleep, not a luxury place. May or may not return.

We have stayed at this hotel for a number of years for Grand Prix weekend in June. Other Montreal hotels significantly raise their rates and require extended minimums so this is good option for those who want to spend their money elsewhere in Montreal. It is a tourist hotel which includes breakfast and coffee (yes the croissants and muffins come from Costco, but they're good!) and rooms can include refrigerators, TVs, wifi, hair dryer etc. No elevator or other amenities, but clean and safe. We have never had anything stolen or disturbed and the housekeepers have been there for a long time. The management is friendly and accommodating ( they'll keep your luggage safe after you have checked out, for example) The location is the best part - close to the main subway station at Berri-UQAM, a short stroll to Old Montreal as well as St. Catherine Street and the Village ( a mix of gay friendly shops and several restaurants and bars). We love it here and will stay for many more years to come. We have recommended it to several racing friends who now stay there as well.

Room Tip: We prefer higher up and corner room for more light and less noise, but be mindful there is no eleva...

I stayed in a small room alone in june 2013. Room clean and quite silent. There was everything you need (air condition, hair dryer, tv...) but no fridge in the room. Weak internet signal in the rooms, but if you come down to the small lobby, perfect and inunterrupted signal. Good and enough breakfast. People are really very interested to the guests. A cheap budget hotel in 10 mn walk to downtown.
I recommend this hotel to everyone.

Read some of iffy reviews and had a few hesitations but decided to book anyway and I am very glad that I did. The stay was wonderful, I have no idea what some of those other reviewers are talking about. The people working the front desk were extremely helpful, the room was cleaned daily and the location was perfect! We really loved our stay and will certainly refer others to stay at Hotel Viger in the future!

Room Tip: No elevators, so if needed try to book a room on a lower floor.

I'll keep this short..

Great value for the location, however the room had a very funky smell and I knew it was the fridge that might of had some mold in the back. Our car was broken into during the DAY on Sunday while we were out strolling. Don't park your car in their designated lot... Its a bad area. They even broke our center console for some reason. Took all the liqour i had bought for my family as well.

Anyways if you can get a room without a smell and dont have a car.. Then stay here if you are on a budget.
