The staff was very nice and professional at check-in. The room was OK, but for the price, it was a bit too simple. The breakfast was a great surprise. We enjoyed the various options and the high quality of the products served. The location is good as it is very central to reach many touristic destinations, but at night it was a bit rough as there are a lot of beggars and drunk people in the neighborhood. The front desk person, very friendly (Dorina), suggested that we park our car in the library garage 1st level, which was a great tip as it was a good price ($12 for 24 hours and $9 on weekends), and it was only 2 minutes walk from the hotel. She also suggested a good place to eat (vegetarian buffet called Resto), which was a nice options with good prices.
I was mainly looking for a reasonably priced hotel near public transportation to attend a meeting for 4 days. The hotel satisfied both criteria with very good rates and a Metro station across the street. The room itself, while small, was well furnished and surprise surprise the bathroom came complete with a jacuzzi tub. The desk was good for work and somehow they fit a very comfortable large easy chair into the room. Wifi was as promised free and remarkably fast. Staff were almost uniformly pleasant and helpful.

My husband, son and I stayed here during a combination work/fun long weekend. We walked to all the historic sites and cathedrals and basilicas in and near Vielle Ville, as well briefly exploring the Latin quarter and Chinatown. Each of these neighborhoods were within a ten minutes walk. We stayed on the third floor, and shared bathroom. - no elevator, or tv.
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.
