“Don't even think about staying here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2010

We book the hotel just for one night, because our preferred B&B for the next night. Bad choice!! It was one night too long!
First of all the whole property was totaly different from all the positive reviews. Hard to believe it was built in 2007 it was shabby, dirty and offered a horro-movie-motel like athmosphere. In our room there were suspicious black AND white spots all over the carpet and blankets. The bathroom was covered in (pubic) hair. The toilett was sprinkeled with dots in rainbow colours and smelt disgusting.
We are two student girls and we did not feel save in the area arround. When you walk down the street you can meet junkies, drug dealers, prostitutes and homeless people begging money from you. Avoid the park!!!!!!
As we decided not to stay in this room over night, because we were deeply concerned about our health and safty and were too tired after a long day of the travel to pull an allnighter, the hotel staff was not even close to be friendly. The hotel mangeger was not avaliable and we were asked to come back the following day to ask for the refund of our money, since we didn't stay in this room for more than 10 min in total!!
The next morning he refused to talk to us in reasonable way. And screened and pointed his finger at us and we would waste his time. We didn't get our money back!!
We would also like to mention that we have a lot of travel experience and therefore do have realistic views on accomodation also in this price segment. But being treated rudely and being put into a disgustingly dirty cell is not an option.
If your wellbeing is important to you don't even think about staying at this "Hotel"! Don't let this place ruin your time in the great city of Montreal.

We recently stayed at the Hotel Elegant in Montreal for the Formula 1 weekend. We booked this place for 2 very clear reasons: firstly the location of the hotel in relation to the circuit and we were on a budget. The hotel ticked both boxes, it is a short walk to the Beri metro station and then 1 tube stop to the circuit, it is also very economical at a time when hotel room prices in the city are very high. My advice is to be very clear why you are choosing this hotel. We booked 3 rooms, 1 was a dingly, hot basement room, one had a flea ridden bed and the third was freezing as the staff on reception controlled the air con - not the guest in the room. The staff were not very friendly, it was very noisy with pipes creaking and it was a very, very poor breakfast. Read all reviews of this hotel carefully and book with your eyes wide open.

Hotel Elegant gave me a TV, brand new bar fridge, clean room, clean corridors, no smoke smell, balcony, parking on premise ($) AND a cute concierge lady. Not to mention that it is in a great spot if you want to get around. A short walk (10-15 minutes) from "Montreal" night life and short drive (5-10 minutes) from Old Montreal - which is beautiful, by the way - the location of the hotel is in a great spot. We slept like babies. What else can I say, I'm happy with Hotel Elegant.

Firstly, I am easy to please so don't get the idea I am a complainer. This joint is a dump. You can see through the towels. There is nowhere to put your bags. Breakfast is a cold croissant or a muffin (only one per guest). The streets surrounding are full of beggars. On the up side though, you can walk to the corner and get on the metro to the city.

I just came back from Montreal. I was there for business but extended my trip to enjoy the city for few extra days. I stayed at hotel elegant. I was a little disappointed when I arrived as it wasn't very solubrious. However the rooms were clean and attebded every day and the location was good too. Just across the road from Metro and bus station so was convenient for getting around. Also right in middle of the action for Just for Laughs festival which was on while I was there. Overall, good value for money but if you want something a bit special, try elsewhere

We paid less than we would for a hostel. The room was fine, nothing special but we paid less than 50 dollars a night between us and you get a pastry and a cup of coffee in the morning
