“Atmosphere, shopping, bars & restaurants”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Lots of things to see and do - feels a bit like a European city. Lots of Art galleries, souvenir shops, bars, restaurants. Great that a large part is closed off to cars (at least in Summer!)

“Walking tour”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Loved walking around old Montreal to get a feel of the oldest part of the City and some of the culture. Some of the restaurants are expensive though so be careful and eat elsewhere if you're on a tight budget.

“Old World Look and Feel”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed in hotel located in Old Town. An interesting place with many choices for drinking, dining and shopping. Definitely caters to the tourists and most things are priced accordingly. Buildings and streets have a real old world look. Can be pretty crowded on weekends and holidays, but also is in close proximity to water front and other attractions. Overall, a fun place to stop by for an afternoon, walk about, shop a little, and have a meal.

“Great place to shop for souvenirs and view historical Montreal”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

My husband and I spent a day in Old Montreal to do some souvenir shopping and enjoy the historic sites. We spent most of the day walking on the cobblestone streets and learning about the history of Montreal. Old Montreal is a must see if you are visiting in the area. While you are there, make sure you try their local dish, pountine!

“Spent most of our three days here cuz we couldn't get enough.”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

So many shops and restaurants and beautiful architecture. But the whole area is small enough to feel like you know it well after a couple days. Could not get enough. Felt like we were in Europe.
