Good deal for the money
We enjoyed our stay at this apartment and found it a good value for the space provided and what we paid.
Pros: Secure building, decent space, soft sheets/pillows, great location, laundry available, decent shower and a good working kitchen. We loved that it was only a 10 min walk from Old Montreal and a block from the nearest Metro station (Place des Arts). The building was very quiet except for our first night where there was some partying going on, but the windows face internally to other buildings so you aren't getting any street noise. The air conditioner in the living room was enough to keep the apartment cool but there's no circulation to the bedroom directly.
Some things went wrong, however. First, there was confusion on the part of the owner about getting access to the apartment. The owner had expected us to contact her with our time of arrival whereas the HomeAway website indicates that the apartment would be available any time after 2pm for "check in". Personally, I would have expected the owner to reach out if she hadn't heard from us prior to our arrival. Because of this - the apartment was not clean or ready when we arrived at 5pm. Luckily we could put our items in the apartment and went to dinner while the owner cleaned. We came back to a clean apartment with fresh sheets.
Secondly, I was a bit unnerved by the giant sticker on the door of the building that said "NO AIRBNB" and a posting that using your apartment as an AirBNB was against the building agreement. Now, perhaps the owner is getting around this by using HomeAway but it did make me feel like at any point someone might tell us we had to clear out because we were there "illegally".
Some light fixtures and the bathroom fan were not working, the shades looked like they'd fall off the windows if you pulled them down all the way.
The guest booked my apartment no less than 6 months ago and never bothered to write a single message regarding their visit or arrival time. They then simply called me in the middle of the afternoon saying they were standing in front of the door. In 5 years of property management I've hosted many guests but have never encountered such poor communication and lack of respect. I did everything I could to accommodate them quickly and adequately but I do hope they now have a better understanding that a home is not like a hotel and some communication and considération of people's time is necessary for a satisfactory experience.
Excellent cozy stay in heart of downtown
This condo is an excellent choice for a couple to stay in the heart of downtown. Very convenient to multiple shops and food places, as well as the Place Des Arts metro station right around the corner. The owner is very attentive to messages and answered all questions quickly and satisfactorily and had the place well cleaned and tidied when we arrived.
Especially for the price, it's hard to beat this place for a weekend or more in Montreal.
Parking available in garages nearby.
Very clean, nice building and all the facilities work properly.
The double bed is nice, confortable, we had a deep rest.
The location is awesome, we park the car and attended the Fair at Palais des congrès walking.
Excellent communication with the owner, she was pending to our needs.
A Real Gem in the Heart of Downtown Montreal
If you are looking for a place to stay in downtown Montreal, within walking distance of just about everything you need to experience the city, including being just steps from a METRO station, then look no farther! We needed a place to stay that met those conditions and we found it in this cozy, comfortable condo. It gave easy access to wonderful restaurants yet it was a place to which we could retreat and make our own meals (full kitchen with two wonderful groceries within minutes walking). The washer/dryer allowed us to pack less clothing and travel lighter than we might if staying in a hotel. This is now our #1 choice for visits to Montreal!
Perfect for two and close to almost everything
This was a very clean, modern one-bedroom apartment with everything you need: all kitchen appliances, dishes, pots and pans, etc., double bed with big closet, and even washer/dryer. Owner Lidia even had toiletries in the bathroom in case you forgot something and an umbrella in the hall closet in case of rain. She thinks of everything! The unit is not large, but certainly big enough for a couple. There is a pullout couch, but any more than two people might be a tight squeeze. There isn't any view as the windows look out on the backs of other buildings, but that also means no street noise. Very close to Place des Arts, metro station, and St Catherine St. Walking distance to St. Laurent and St. Dennis streets with all their shops and restaurants. Can also walk to Chinatown. A grocery store, pharmacy and several restaurants nearby. In a word, the perfect spot for a weekend or longer getaway to Canada's coolest city.
Great little spot in Montreal
My wife and I had a great stay here over a weekend. It was a short walk to Le Metro which was great. The bed was very comfortable. Other than a event in a bordering building late on Saturday night, it was very quiet even on the weekend. The in unit Washer/Dryer was very helpful for catching up on our laundry on the trip.
