A friend and I stayed for 3 nights and were very very pleased. Alana (front desk) was very friendly and helpful providing a nice backdrop for our visit to Montreal. Janine (breakfast hostess) was always chipper and got our mornings off to a great start. I appreciated having local phone access to use a phone card. Location, value, cleanliness were all excellent.

We enjoyed the stay immensely. As someone mentioned previously, there are no surprises here -- what you see is what you get. The photos are representative, as is the description provided from the property website. Staff was really fun, helpful, kind, considerate, hilarious. The Green Suite rooms were large, airy, and comfortable. The pull-out mattress was slightly crummy, but I mention that only as a suggestion that they might want to replace it soon -- not a real complaint. We enjoyed ourselves a lot. Yes, we did have to haul our butts up 3 flights of stairs -- so be aware that there are stairs! We walked all over the city from here, the neighbourhood is typical of any university/college neighbourhood. It was convenient, cheap, very pleasant, and I will definitely stay there again. We had a blast.

We stayed at the University B&B this past weekend - we had the Green Room - and we loved every second of our stay. The room was clean & tidy, the staff were WONDERFUL, the breakfast delicious (MMMMMMMontreal bagels) and the location was perfect - walking distance to everything.

I would recommend this B&B to everyone and will definitely look to stay there again next time.

The University B&B was recommended to me by the department of physics at McGill, whom I was visiting in Montreal. I expected a simple spartan room with a continental breakfast the next morning in the lobby. What I found was a comfortable and stylish apartment with exposed brick walls, clean bathroom and a bedroom nicer than my own! The breakfast was "full Canadian" served in a cozy kitchen by an extremely attractive hostess. The B&B's close proximity to McGill and downtown also impressed me. I would definitely go back if I needed a place to stay for a short visit in Montreal again.

Rooms were comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was good- excellent bagels and croissants. Good strong coffee and fresh juice. Staff very friendly and helpful for sites to visit and directions.
Close to downtown- 10 minute walk. Right at McGill campus 2 minute walk to the gymnasium. Would definitely stay here again

We were looking for someplace to stay that was decent priced but also half decent. We searched for a while until we came to the University B&B website. I wrote some emails back and fourth with Alana, she replied quickly and in full details. We ended up booking our two night stay here, and we were pleasantly surprised. We got into Montreal early, and we got a taxi to UB&B and were greeted by two lively women, with great personalities. One of them brought us to our rooms, and though it wasn’t cleaned yet, she held on to our luggage for us while we went and got lunch so we didn’t have to drag it around.

Our location was great, we walked about two streets over and we were in the center of it all. Restaurants, bars, shopping... anything you could ask for. We ate lunch at a little cafe and went back to our spotless room. It was perfect, cozy and very clean. Fit myself and friends taste. We were excited to call this our home for the next three days. The beds were incredible too; i don't think we've ever slept that well, which is probably why we missed the breakfast both days. As well, we had a nice large deck off our bedroom which had a beautiful view of the old buildings and houses around us.

Overall, we couldn’t have been more satisfied. Our room was everything we were looking for and more. We cannot wait to return, which we will be doing for sure in the next few months. But this time, we are definitely staying more than 2 nights!

See you soon!

The University B&B has been a place of sentimental interest to me and my wife, our first stay was in the Brick Room so we went back to spend some time in Montréal and be back in a place that had some meaning to us. We loved it because it feels like a small Parisian apartment to us, in fact we commented that (in our typically bohemian fashion perhaps) that we could easily live in such a place. The breakfast room reminds me of hostels in Europe, the traveler wakes up, walks upstairs and meets some of the other travelers...a beautiful way to start a day in Montréal. It's thoroughly charming and we'll be back.
