“Hotel manager himself doesn't think this is a hotel. Best advice: stay away!”
Reviewed November 4, 2009

My experience was quite bad. First of all, the window in my room leaked a lot. I turned the heater on high and the room temperature wouldn't still rise above 61F. Also, since the window was so thin (and a part of it was replaced by wood) you could also hear the noise from the street very loudly.

The lock in the door was also ridiculous - the safety lock had been ripped away and the lock itself wouldn't lock. I noticed it when I tried to access my room and I didn't even need a key - the door wasn't locked (and I wasn't able to lock it from the outside no matter how much I tried)...

As far as I understand, the hotel is run by an Indian person. He tries really hard to be friendly and all, but doesn't really have money to run the place. Also, sometimes the customer service fails... e.g. when I asked him if there is an elevator in the hotel, he replied in a loud voice: "No we don't, this is not a hotel!!!"

I couldn't agree more.

it's located about 10 minutes (walk) from the metro-station where the airport-bus stops, the room was the smallest one I've ever been too, it was only every second time possible to flush the loo, the breakfast is a cup of juice, a cup of coffee/milk/tea and a chocolate or blueberry muffin or a plain croissant, it wasn't possible to open the window and it was still very loud...

I've been to the Hotel Viger about 6 times in the last 15 years. It is a good budget option. The staff have always been friendly. It's located in a great location near a fun part of St. Catherine street, and walking distance to pretty much anywhere. The rooms vary, some are quite small but the doubles are roomy. It's a no-frills place to stay for a short time, and I've never been disappointed.

My boyfriend and I stayed in Montreal for 3 days and we found the hotel to be perfect, at least for us. Of course, if u r expecting 5 stars, u won't get it. Our expectations are:
safety (e.g. theft), good/perfect location, friendly/helpful staff, affordable, clean & not noisy room. This hotel gets an a+ from us for all of the above.

For over 20 years we've stayed at this charming, century-old inn. Clean, comfortable (fantastic beds-most comfortable of any place we've ever stayed). The location is very handy-between 2 Metro stops and a 10 minute walk to the Old Port or to St. Catherine St. very reasonable, seasonal rates, including breakfast (croissants or muffin, coffee, tea or chocolate and OJ). Free internet access in the lounge and parking is available for a fee. Wonderful, personal service.

We truly enjoyed staying at the Viger Hotel. It's in a very central location (ca 10 Min to the Basilica and the Old Montreal Downtown) and has very polite and good English-speaking service. The outside looks of the hotel and the rooms themselves are not ultra-luxurious, so if you look for luxury you may need to go somewhere else (and pay considerably more). For us, however, it was the perfect choice and the "petite dejeuner" (continental breakfast) sufficient for a good start in the morning. Parking was also easily found around the hotel (we parked on a Friday evening and there is free parking then available all around the hotel till Monday morning). If you really don't know where to park (which would be surprising to me) then the hotel can still offer you a day-pass at a nearby parking lot for Can-$ 10. The Wifi-internet was fast and reliable.
