“Very charming neighborhood”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

This reminds me of new orleans except 100x cleaner. U got a french charm to this quaint lil town and it feels safe and clean. Lots of great restuarants (like bonapart and les imperenes) and just a pleasant scenery to walk around. It's close to the cathedrals, Chinatown, and lots of nifty art shops and souvenir shops. I enjoy my time here a lot. I feel its a must see in montreal. it's better than down town unless u like the bars and hangout scenes.

“A taste of Europe”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Each time I go to Montreal, I make sure to visit old Montreal. It is beautiful, a bit more pricey than other parts of the city, but it is worth a walk around to see the street performers and enjoy the old European feel.

This is a really nice area of Montreal with cobblestone paving and a lot of history. Notre Dame Basilica is in this area.

“Visit after dark for the charm”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We visited old Montreal on a rainy afternoon and, although we were impressed, it was not a patch on visiting after dark when the place is charming. We were lucky to get a table at a great restaurant - Modavie - but others were not and there can be queues, especially on Saturday night. So if you are wandering the old city at night and want to eat it's probably best to book in advance.
