The location was excellent--very close to the buses which went regularly to the subway which took us into downtown Montreal. (About half an hour.) Frederic answered my request for accommodation immediatelly and got back to me regarding the details. We were happy that we had a code for the door, instead of a key.
The apartment was old and the living room was dark. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was fairly large. What frustrated us, however, was the lack of basic amenities such as a bar of soap in the bathroom and enough toilet paper. None of the sinks had plugs. We would also have appreciated an email or text from Frederic, welcoming us to the unit.
