“Clean, Cozy Apartment in Great Location- featuring Cranky Neighbour”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015
2
people found this review helpful

As promised, this rental apartment is tucked away in a quiet recess right off of busy, fun, exciting Saint-Denis. There were 8 adults staying here over a w/e in September. Overall, we enjoyed the stay- here are the pros and cons:

Pros
The owners were great- very helpful and quick to respond to questions. Tips on parking and local shops were right on the money- and much appreciated. This place is surrounded by great bakeries, funky little shops, great restaurants and bars, etc. The apartment was clean, had contemporary furniture, and everything worked. The Jacuzzi tub was a definite bonus! There were plenty of sleeping options- they are not kidding- there is room for 13 guests (even though we were only 8). I liked the single mattress options and the couches were VERY comfortable.

Cons
There is not a lot of privacy in this place. If you are looking for individual rooms for couples, or if you need "your space"- this is not the place for you. We were ok with the openness and communal approach to sleeping, but I know that others may not be so...Liberal.

There is a cranky neighbour. He lives in the apartment next to the rooftop terrace. He was rude and confrontational to some of my group who were smoking on the terrace late one night. The owners made it clear that noise was to be kept to a minimum, but this guy expected total silence and needs to accept the fact that he lives in the city, and there is going to be some noise. He even complained about the sound of us walking up the stairs, He complained to the owners, who let us know that if he complained again, we were risking our $800 security deposit. That's a lot of power to give a cranky idiot, but In order to not risk that $, we stayed off the terrace the 2nd night- and the smokers had to walk out onto Saint-Denis.

The bottom line- if you have any intention of using the rooftop terrace after 9 pm- DON'T. It could cost you $800. So if you have smokers in your group- I would not recommend this place. It's not worth the risk.

Bottom Line- I recommend this place to families or groups- as long as you are ok with a more communal sleeping arrangements, and are all non-smokers.

“Awesome Place in Great Part of Town”
Reviewed 26 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Apartment was awesome! It was exactly as described. Clean and spacious and a superb location. What was also impressive was the documentation provided ahead of time including metro stations, restaurants and overall info about the apartment and the area. We went to several of the surrounding restaurants and bars and they were all as advertised...excellent. A pleasure to deal with these hosts. Would strongly recommend!

“Great location -- great place”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This apartment has a lot going for it. For a start, it's probably got the best location in Montreal, right at the center of the city's nightlife -- and close to the city's best patisseries! Also, it's a big property, with plenty of space for a large family or a large group. And it's in immaculate condition. Equally important, the people who rent it out are amazingly friendly and helpful, responding to requests immediately.

They're also well organized. As soon as you book the place, they send you a rather thick pamphlet telling you everything you need to know about the place, the neighborhood, and Montreal, including places to eat and websites to search to find out what's on.

So, what's not to like? The price, of course. If you are traveling as part of a large group, such as a family, the cost is very reasonable. But it's a bit stiff if you are traveling alone or with one other person. it's not just the stated per night cost; they add a $200 cleaning fee on top. And then there are some hefty taxes. So, it all adds up.

There's another point that needs to be mentioned. The apartment is on three levels, plus a rooftop terrace. You also need to walk up a steep staircase to get there. All this is fine for many people. But some might find it a big problem.

In the end, it's a premium product at a premium price, aimed at healthy, young people. For me, it was perfect. But I realize that not everyone will necessarily feel that way.

Thank you for these comments. Nothing to say on our end. It is all true. Best location, best for larger groups for affordability and on 3 levels which is not well suited for the elderly.
