This hotel is great if you want visit Montreal and are on a tight budget.
We spent two nights at the hotel Villa. It is very well situated on Sainte-Catherine Street and is easily accessible on foot, either from the greyhound bus station (on Berrie Street) or from the many metro stations. This is by far the best advantage of this hotel, and we spent the weekend strolling through the charming downtown streets and nearby shopping malls, restaurants, parks and tourist sites.
The rooms are small and a little dated, but have all the basic necessities; TV, air conditioning and a sink. The room we booked had a private bathroom, which was not connected to the room, but right next to it. We were the only ones to have the key, so it was not a sharred bathroom, like the other rooms on the floor. Everything was very clean, though the room could use a makeover. Although it is on a busy street, there was very little noise and we slept well. There is no breakfast, but you can find many cafes close by. The price was the lowest we could find in Montreal that weekend without resorting to hostels (around $80/night, with tax, for two people).
The staff was curteous and helpful. This hotel is perfect for a quick stop in Montreal, either alone, for a young couple, or a weekend with friends. I am not sure I would recommend it for a full week vacation, nor for a familly with kids, as the rooms are quite small.
I will definately return to this hotel the next time I need a weekend escapade.
