We've been coming to Montreal since the 1970s. in those days I stayed at the Y on Drummond St. the Hotel Villa is a lot like that: don't expect amenities but you'll get a clean, comfortable room, very courteous staff, at the right price. The neighbourhood gets better every year. Although there are still a few seedy storefronts there are now, in addition to Chinatown, LaVitrine.com (with its spectacles) across the street, the Complexe Desjardins just a couple of blocks west, the Complexe des Ailes a few blocks further. UQAM (a university), the Grande Bibliotheque and the new bus terminal are 5 minutes away.
So: take this hotel for what it is: plain and simple, not grande luxe. There is little to disappoint if you do that.More
