Great experience, in an interesting and vibrant historic neighbourhood. Staff are fantastic, breakfast was pretty good, except the eggs, and the terrace where it is served is exceptional. Although small, the room is spotless and has a genuine, unique vibe. We'd visit again!
Its location is perfect for anyone who uses public transport to travel around the city. It's just a block away from Berri Uqam metro station. Using public transport in Montreal will save a lot of money and quite convenient too. You can get a 24 hour or 72 hour unlimited ride ticket if it is just a short stay in Montreal. You can purchase a ticket from the airport and take bus 747 to Berri Uqam station. The hotel condition is not bad. The room is clean and has a small kitchen. Although the hotel offer a good breakfast in terms of value of money, its menu is exactly the same every morning which is a minus.
This is a nice small hotel, conveniently located near Rue St. Denis, transit stops, shopping, and other conveniences. Old Montreal is within walking distance. Rooms are attractively furnished. The best feature is breakfast - a cute basket with yogurt, fruit, croissants, and muffins delivered to your door in the morning. You may eat at your leisure in your room, or take your basket downstairs to the small dining room and supplement it with cold cereal, toast, etc. We are late sleepers and appreciated having good coffee and breakfast in our room every morning.

The price is always fair for what you get. The suites are practical and tidy. Housekeeping shares elevators with guests, which can make for a slow journey if staying on higher floors. Breakfast is included, but offerings are not up to par with similar mid-range hotels. For example, aside from yogurt, there are no proteins available, such as boiled eggs or cheese. Fruit is all canned. Bagels, toasts, and pastries are average. Coffee is good. The ticket system used for breakfast is antiquated as nobody from the street is going to walk into the hotel, go into the basement dining hall, and start eating. Also, Patrons should not be scolded for wanting to take a cup of coffee back to their room. The main drawback is that the internet connectivity is very slow. I inquired and the clerk stated it is most slow on weekends when the hotel is full. She offered to "reset" the system, but to no avail. The actual solution is to replace the current technology with a system that can handle demand of today's customer.
In sum, there are several low cost fixes that would greatly improve the hotel's rating above. I would highly encourage them to consider doing so.
The Latin Quarter, an area bordering the University of Quebec and lower St-Denis Street, holds a youthful feel with students filling the area and is packed full of theatres, boutiques, cafés, and restaurants. Chapelle Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes, designed by artist and architect Napoléon Bourassa, sits on Ste-Catherine Street.
