This is a decent hotel to stay at if you don't plan to spend any time there except for showering and sleeping. It's well located, near food and transportation. It's the last stop on the 747 bus from airport ($8, highly recommend the bus as it drops you off right there).
Location: Well located by the 747 bus (from and to airport) and Berri UQAM metro station (has a lot of train lines going through it -- it's a major station). It is near the Grand Bibliotheque and a few short blocks to St. Denis (where you can find lots of cafes, bars, restaurants, boutiques) and there is a great super-marche 2 blocks over (IAG). The closest bank is right outside on Rene-Levesque (the DesJardins). The area is between Quartier Latin and the Village so you may see some police activity, as I did twice when there was some protest or incident going on in the park outside the hotel. There are some interesting characters outside the hotel and on the nearby streets at all times of the day and night but I was told they are harmless (they just ask for money). I was in and out of the hotel at times like 6am and 11pm and it was fine.
Room: The room and bedding is clean though there were little holes (cigarette or moth?) in my blanket. The bathroom is very spare - thin, small, threadbare towels that are somewhat scratchy and not all that water absorbent. You get a plastic cup, a small bar of soap and a bottle of shampoo. That's it. No lotion, no conditioner, no body soap or body wash. Bring your own. The kitchenette is nice though I used the fridge the most (storing water, juice and fruits from the super market). The room is not the biggest but the odd thing is there is no full size mirror anywhere. There is only the mirror above the bathroom sink but no other mirror in the hotel room. There is a AC in every room.
Service: The service is good. The reception desk folks are nice and polite and helpful. There is a computer in the lobby and some brochures. But it's a very sparse lobby (two arm chairs, often occupied by folks waiting to check in or waiting for their tour guides) so don't plan on spending anytime relaxing there either.
Breakfast: The breakfast is nice - typical continental breakfast. Juice, Coffee, eggs, hash, sausage, croissants, muffins, jam, butter. (no fruits) Self-service.
Tour groups: They seem to cater to a lot of tour operators. At one point, there were about four or five large tour buses parked outside. As the hotel is located on a somewhat dim and darken street (walking from the Berri station), it can be daunting to walk in that tight, darkened sidewalk space between the buses and the random folks sitting on the street at night.
Elevators: There are two elevators: small one holds about 4 people and the large one holds about 8 or 9. I bring this up because there is sometimes a wait for the elevator when a tour group is checking in or out. (If your room is on the lower floors, best to just take the stairs).
Internet: There is wifi service in the hotel and it wasn't too bad. Not the fastest but decent.
