“Charming hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2006

This hotel is very charming inside and out. The staff is very knowledgeable and will help with anything you need. The night staff is especially talkative and can direct you to fun times. I requested a high floor facing the street but was given a floor on the 2nd floor facing a parking lot...truly an ugly scene. However we may have been lucky because there is massive construction on the street that backs traffic all the way down the street. The room was nice with high ceilings. The bathroom, while definately the cleanest I've ever seen, was ridiculously small. There was barely room to put your toothbrush down. The location is only a couple blocks from the square in old Montreal and the Notre Dame but the walk to downtown can get long if you're tired. Overall, this is a very nice hotel but I think I'd stay ouside of Old montreal in the future, due to the lack of nightlife after 10.

We booked a room with two queen beds and when we arrived at about 4:00 in the afternoon we were shown to a room with only one bed. When we returned to the desk, they said that was a room with two queen beds because it had a sofa bed. They appeared not to have an available room with two beds as we had reserved, and were not at all apologetic or offered any discount. Their attitude was take it or leave it. The sofa bed was really cheap, about a four inch mattress with a single blanket and no pillows. Even worse, the part of the room where the sofa bed was had no curtains.

  • Disliked — the service
  • Tips/Secrets — check back with them often to make sure they will honor your reservation

After staying two nights in another four-star hotel that was a disappointment, we switched to the Hotel XIXe. Our stay was a very pleasant and delightful experience! Although we did not have one of their large, deluxe rooms, our small corner room painted in warm colors soft on the eyes was outfitted with a firm and comfortable bed with plush pillows and a duvet and a spacious bathroom with high quality toiletries and fluffy, white robes. The continental breakfast, located in a peaceful and beautiful room with white table clothes and a very friendly staff, included the usual--assorted breads, fresh fruit, cheeses, cereals and meats--and was quite tasty. The hotel is close to everything in Old Montreal, and we could see the spires of the Notre Dame Basilica from our window. Overall, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay here again!

This hotel was a pleasure. The staff was helpful. The location was superb - close to the old city, the river, tourist sites. The room was large. The bathroom was beautiful and had a whirpool tub! The toiletries were awesome, large size soap, nice shampoo and conditioner.

We had a problem with some plumbing and help was on it's way minutes after I called the front desk.

Highly recommended.

This is my 4th time in this hotel. The rooms are of the best I ever been. The bathrooms are always clean and look new. The soaps are unique. The room is excellent, with large space for a couple. Excellent location, in the heart of the old city. The service is good. Not cheap, however always a pleasure

I booked the hotel to attend a meeting at the Palais des congres - -which turned out to be one block away. The price on Expedia was 127 + tax -- and that came out to about 150 USD. The hotel is excellent -- the staff are attentive -- the attention to detail is superb -- and the rooms are spacious and really comfortable. Although this part of Montreal is a little noisy, the hotel was quiet and restful. It was hot in Montreal this month, but the airconditioning worked just great. The people at the desk are amazing -- they have a real sense of humor, they are helpful, and they will go out of their way to accommodate your needs. By the way - -this month, Madonna came to Montreal and stayed about 1/2 block away at the Hotel St. John. That hotel looked similar to the XIXeme siecle. Another note -- the name of the hotel is really XIXeme siecle. This is pronounced 'dix-neuvieme siecle' -- some taxi drivers seem not to know the place because it is small. Just tell them the address on Rue St.-Jacques. You are only a block from Notre Dame and 2 blocks from the grand city hall. And, you are really in old Montreal, and all the great restaurants are closeby. The 'Ecole de pasta' (pasta school?) is around the corner, and it is excellent.

My husband and I just got married and wanted to do something different for our honeymoon. We stayed at the Hotel Xixe Siecle and fell in love all over again. This hotel is great. The rooms are spacious, bed is clean and comfortable and the staff is very helpful. The location is also excellent. Not to be missed is the breakfast. We were full the entire day! Would definitely stay here again. We had a great time! We also took a short train ride to Quebec City. If you can, see BOTH cities.
