Clean, comfortable, friendly and beautiful

4.2 on October 13, 2010

The room was clean and very pleasant. The breakfast was excellent. I was very pleased to find I could eat heartily despite being vegan. I really appreciated the soy milk and hummus spread. Very thoughtful.


Nice place to stay

3.8 on August 04, 2010

Very nice location directly across from Parc LaFontaine. Stayed in a "regular" room. The hotel is a bit dated with decor, but otherwise quite nice. Breakfast was very good each day. Overall, I was pleased with the stay and would return without hesitation.


A charming Auberge

We always stay here when we come to Montreal. Love the location in the East end of the city right across from the wonderful LaFontaine park. An easy walk to vibrant Rue St Denis with its upscale restaurants and shops. You'll feel well taken care of at this Auberge.


Nice and Friendly

3.0 on July 04, 2010

A nice place across the road from a large park. Staff friendly and helpful. The room we had was on the ground floor and a bit small. The bed also small (double) more like a big single. Recommend they upgrade to queen. Parking limited, lucky we were there on the weekend so we could park out the front as it is a clearway week days. Breakfast excellant and location easy to most places.


I recommend it!! really so much~~~~~

We arrived just as fireworks were going off across the street-what a lovely surprise. The hotel was exactly as advertised-rooms looked just like the web site.


In oasis in the middle of Montreal

4.4 on September 15, 2009

We stayed there two days in August. This property is so nice, in front of a big park (felt like Central Park). We took long walk at sunset, so beautiful. The staff was very helpful to suggest places to visit. The breakfast buffet had a nice selection and there was a street not too far who had like a dozen of restaurants to discover. We will gladly stay there again.


A quiet corner of French Montréal

3.2 on May 10, 2007

I have stayed at this hotel at least three times in different seasons. What surprises me is how quiet the inn is at night facing the park. This is not your touristy area like old Montreal but it is close enough to everything and the price is worth the extra distance. They only serve a cold breakfast but there are many restaurants in the area. If you like the feel of a country inn or B&B you will be happy here. There are two sections to this hotel. I highly recommend the newer section which has incorporated the brickwalls in the decor. Here you will experience the french connection! the staff are very helpfull.
