“Diamond In The Rough”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

What a Gem!!! After a lot of perusing different accommodations in Montreal, we finally decided on Hotel Kutuma. This turned out to be a great choice. From the first greeting on our arrival, to enjoying dinner in their Restaurant Le Nil Bleau,to the final smile on our departure, we couldn't have asked for anything more. We stayed in Room 203, which was on the first floor, with a Balcony. King sized bed, amazing bathroom, luxury amenities, a full kitchen and sofa. We only had one night here, much to our disappointment. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I would certainly recommend Hotel Kutuma to any visitor, both Tourist or Canadian who visit Montreal.

Unfortunately for us we stayed one night at Hotel Kutuma. At first blush the hotel looks like a motel from the outside but once you step inside the rooms you are treated to many luxury amenities: King sized bed, amazing bathroom and tub, tribal decor. Our room also had a balcony and full kitchen and sofa. Great value for the money. Would recommend to friends and family.

My husand and I decided to go to Montreal for our 20th Wedding anniversary and stayed her for 4 nights. This hotel was highly recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The room was small but romantic with luxury items to make your stay more eventful. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, nothing was too difficult for them and we were made to feel very welcome. The room was clean with a very comfortable king size bed, small kitchen and coffee machine which came in very handy every morning. The hotel was within walking distance to great resturants, bars, and shopping that Montreal had to offer. I would hightly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Montreal and would definitely come back and stay here agin.

Room Tip: Any room that you get is unique, there are no rooms alike which makes this hotel a stand out.

The hotel is located in our new favourite neighbourhood in Montreal, Le Plateau. It is surrounded by some of the best restaurants, bars and shopping in the city. It is a short walk or a Metro stop or two away from everything great Montreal has to offer. As for the hotel itself, the staff was great and our room was incredible. We stayed in the Deluxe Suite. First of all, it was a steal at $180 a night (booked on booking.com). It had a full kitchen (including a coffee AND espresso maker), living room, extra wide king size bed, HUGE bathroom with jacuzzi tub as well as a fire escape/balcony for the smokers. We had a great stay and couldn't have asked for anything more. It was the perfect combination of location, comfort/cleanliness & value! Also, the Ethiopian restaurant on the main floor is excellent and definately worth stopping in for a meal if you like ethiopian food (and why wouldn't you like ethiopian food...it's sooo good!)
Book a room & enjoy!

Pros- Great location
Friendly staff
Clean
Quiet
Cons-Smell(fried onions) from adjoining restaurant was everywhere
No view, dark room could hardly tell if it was night or day
Weird "rain forest' like shower was awkward.
Not cheap($160.00 CAN per night)

I really wanted to like this hotel ,but the cons outweighed the pros for me YMMV

Room Tip: If you do decide on this hotel..ask for a room on the top floor with a street view.Maybe the smell w...

We stayed here for 4 nights for a mini-getaway. This hotel exceeded my expectations. It is very small- I think only 9 rooms, with a restaurant downstairs. The staff were friendly and the room was awesome. It had a mini kitchen which was handy, and the bed was very comfy. The location is also very good, 3 minutes to the subway and a short walk from huge strip of restaurants.

Part of the appeal of this hotel is it's cleanliness; barely used hotel products were replaced daily (even candles). Staff offered us an umbrella on our way out and seemed quite friendly. The kitchenette was useful especially for snacks, the hotel also provided kitchen tools (cutting boards, pots and knife). The air conditioner worked REALLY well.

The hotel doesn't offer a view of the city, and the balcony is shared with others, so when the curtains are open people are free to peer in.

We weren't interested in trying the restaurant (blue nil). The room is stocked with a few small shots of espresso but no coffee or tea.

The area is nice for small restaurants and shops and is conveniently located near the metro. The nightlife is not huge here, things seemed to close around 10.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so if you don't like taking the stairs a room on the first or second floor...
