“beautiful and charming romantic stay”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Maison Brunet was a beautiful l`hotel for ma petit-amie and I to enjoy our first vacation to the lovely Montreal ; the location is convenient (easy to walk to most attractions) and the landlady is friendly and intuitive. The city is fun and full of vivre and this is a pleasant and comfortable little l`hotel for the visitor`s shelter ! En plus, it`s cute and clean with tasteful decor !
Thank you & Merci de plus combien !

We stayed here for a week and, by and large, were content. The location --- not far from the Berri/UQAM metro station --- was extremely convenient, and we managed to find free parking on the street in front of the house. Our "garden" room had a private bath within the room and decent climate control; everything was clean. The manager was friendly and helpful.

At the price we paid, we didn't expect perfection. The breakfasts --- left out (covered in plastic wrap) on the counter and labeled with the room number --- were "sub-continental." The free wifi worked only intermittently. And the mattress was soft and oddly sloping. Nonetheless, we would likely return if we come back to Montreal.

A couple of practical matters: The toll-free telephone number provided on the website, although supposedly good throughout North America, does not work in the U.S. Parking in the street in front of the B&B is limited and very tricky: As noted on the signs, vehicles must be moved twice a week for an hour each time. And although credit cards are accepted, cash is strongly preferred.

I have travelled and stayed in similar budget accomodations around the world and I would say that Maison Brunet is definatly comparable. If you want no frills accommodation in a great location with a decent price then I would reccommend this hotel for you. Below is some of the pro's and con's I have found from my own personal experiences during my 5 night stay.

Pro's:
-The location is great within 15-20 minute walking distance to plenty of shops, Chinatown, Old Port, Palais des Congres
-The building was charming, although the floors in the rooms seemed slanted, probably due to age. The terrace was quite nice to sit and enjoy our breakfast.
-The Price was good for a clean private room and bathroom. Our bathroom was just down the hall and you had to use a key to get in which wasn't the most convenient, especially when having to use it in the middle of the night, but at least it was for our own personal use.
-The free breakfast is convenient but not anything extravagent. Coffee, cold cereal, toast, mini muffins, etc.
-Free WiFi
-All rooms include a mini fridge and there is a microwave, kettle, dishes, cutlery, etc. in the lobby to use
-Management was friendly and helpful. I had booked and paid for my room several months in advance but my reservation and payment was somehow lost. The manager worked to resolve the situation as best she could but I would reccommend re-confirming your reservation once more closer to your trip to make sure that everything is properly taken care of.

Con's:
-Our room was very small and hot. We were provided with a fan but still had to sleep with the balcony door open which let in bugs and the noise from the street but was worth it to have some fresh cool air come into the room
-Noise levels. I was woken up several times by noise from cars, loud music, people, etc. at all hours of the night due to having to keep our balcony doors open. Also, some of the room doors close very loudly and the sound echo's through the hotel which may disturb some guests.
-The bed in the room we were in was not firm enough for me and sort of lumpy, same with the pillows
-No elevator and 2 flights of stairs make this not a good option for those who have trouble with stairs. There are also stairs to get into the lobby of the building. Some may find it difficult to carry all of your luggage up 2 flights of stairs when the hotel has no air conditioning and is very warm inside.
-There was no "front desk" and you have to ring a doorbell in the apartment below the hotel to get assistance which may be inconvenient for those who like to have someone readily available to ask questions about the city, get directions, call a taxi, etc.

I really want to love the Maison Brunet. It's location is ideal - close walk to all the downtown areas and the Berri-UQAM metro station. The house is on a quiet side-street. It has a lovely interior and the rooms were clean. We had a room with a cute terrace overlooking the street.

The breakfast was a so-so mix of continental fare which was disappointing. A B&B should have a decent breakfast or call itself a motel. It is in an area popular with some shady looking people. Two panhandlers took a nice sit on the steps out front one evening while we were there.

The room was small, like European small but we sort of knew that going in. The biggest problem was no air-conditioning and no fans - ceiling or stationary. The room got way too stuffy and hot during the day while we were out. So, we had to sleep with the door open (which had no screen) just inviting the bugs to sleep with us.

There was street parking out front but with all the creeps wandering about, I'm glad we parked in a garage.

We wouldn't stay again because of the lack of air flow in the room. It was rough and it was only June. I'd hate to stay in the heat of summer.

Nice big quiet room. The house was full, but we never saw anyone. Felt like we had the place to ourselves. Breakfast was so so. Room was very clean and big. Location was great as we walked everywhere. We would come back again when we return to Montreal!

Very affordable for the location. There were 3 of us traveling together and we each had our own bed. Very spacious room. Love having breakfast in the patio, very peaceful. Manager was friendly and helpful. It would have been perfect if they could ask travelers to be more conscious of closing their doors more gently instead of slamming them. I would definitely stay there again.

Clean, charming, good price in a great location - walking distance to Vieux Montreal.
The management was very friendly and helpful.
The free continental breakfast was good with a fair variety. Nice to enjoy it in the back garden.
