Gite Ocoin B&B
Ranked #12 of 144 Montreal B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 October 2013

This was the best B & B we had found in Eastern Canada. The owner Jean - Rene was wonderful, a most kind and friendly man who was genuinely interested in his guests - including the taking photos of all his guests. Rene made us feel at home on arrival, providing a city map together with very helpful itinerary ideas. While the room was not large, it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. He gave us tickets to the Botanic Gardens worth $28 each. The location was close to downtown and very close to the Metro which made exploring the city very easy. The breakfasts were delicious, particularly the blueberry crepe; we were able to make coffee H24. We would love to stay there again if we are ever in Montreal again. I have no hesitation in recommending the B & B, Rene made our stay in his city most memorable..

I can not say enough good things about this place...The owner, Rene, is just the friendliest and kindest man. The b&b is in a great location, very clean, very well decorated, the rooms are very nice and comfortable, the breakfast is really good and you feel home the minute you step in.Rene thought about every little detail to make your stay perfect. I would recommend it to anybody who wants to stay in Montreal...I will be back and probably more than once!!! Thank you Rene, You are quite an amazing person and people like you take the traveling experience to another level of excellence!

a wonderful experience.
the owner is wonderful for his kindness, hospitality, availability, and last but not least a very good cook.
a short distance from downtown montreal, extremely comfortable, clean at a price more than acceptable, it makes you feel at home away from home.
I hope one dayI can come back

This place was a blast, primarily due to the owner/manager, Jean-Rene. What a character! A wonderful, welcoming hospitable person, full of great (and VERY humorous) stories. The breakfast was very good, and he helped us a lot with itinerary selections, etc. Easy (free) parking, access to metro and restaurants very convenient. One tiny draw-back: rooms are small and one shares a bath. That said, rooms are VERY pretty, and bathrooms VERY clean and well-appointed.

Room Tip: We took a room with toilet and sink, sharing the shower in the hallway bathroom. Were very satisfied...

If I ever go to Montreal again, I will stay here again :-)
The host is extremely nice, friendly, helpful guy who just seems to love keeping an B&B and meeting people.
B&B is located couple of blocks away from a metro station (Frontenac?) and there is possible to park your car for free on the street. There are four rooms in the B&B and at least ours was very comfortable. Bed was huge and even though we shared our shower/bath room with one other room, it did not trouble us.
Breakfast was very good and if you give Rene a heads up beforehand, he will cater to your allergies as well.

I stayed at his B&B for two nights and enjoyed it very much! I could recommend this place to everyone who visits Montreal. The host is very very very friendly, full of stories and never short of good advice on where to go and what places to visit. The room wasn't big, but had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious. The location is close to a Metro station and it was easy to get around the city from the B&B.

I'd recommend Rene's place to anyone. I enjoyed the character of the place and huge breakfast prepared by Rene (giant pancakes!). Our bedroom was nicely decorated and came with all amenities. Most of all I found the host to be a great guy who clearly loves his role.

It's located around the corner from a Metro stop, and you can easily walk to the port and old town. There are bus lines very close by too.

Definitely recommended for those who appreciate B&Bs over hotels.
