My cousin and I stayed at the beautiful Hotel Villa between aug 1-4 for Osheaga and it was a perfect place to sleep. The room was clean, cheap, and in a great location.
The room they provided us with was comparable to a long hallway with a bed at the end of it. The hotel was nice enough to have wrapped the mattress in plastic so that we knew it was clean.
Every floor had an extra bathroom so if you're sharing a room with someone there are no issues with having to use the bathroom at the same time and fighting over who will go first.
The walls are quite thin and I was lucky enough to hear passionate screams from our neighbours. It's a good way to get to know other people who are staying at the hotel.
There's easy access to each floor. One can venture up the decorative stair case or if you're feeling adventurous there's a lovely elevator that will take you to every floor besides the 6th.
Located on the first floor is a great souvenir shop filled with knick-knacks and vacation essentials. I was lucky enough to purchase a fashionable do-rag there.
On the second night on our way out someone had broken the glass door to our hotel but there was a cop outside on his cellphone which made us feel safe. Also, not having to open a door to enter the hotel was very convenient, just had to watch out for shattered glass.
Although there were a lot of homeless people asking for change they were mostly polite and made for interesting conversation. Even the men trying to solicit my cousin and I for prostitution were polite when we told them that we are in fact not hookers.
Let me tell you, if I could sum up my 4day stay at the Hotel Villa in 2words: Moulin Rouge.
