About this listing
Available while we are away for work. Very big stylish residential loft in commercial/industrial building in the heart of the plateau! About 40% of the building's spaces are residential lofts, the rest are studios for artists and musicians. Our loft is located in the Plateau, the area in Montreal with the most interesting clubs, restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Also walking distance to Downtown, the Old Port, McGill University, Parc Mont Royal, Rue St. Denis, Rue Prince Arthur and much more. Located on the corner of Pine and St. Laurent, a busy intersection with a lot of restaurants and clubs, also a 24/h grocery store across the street. A lot of public transit nearby.
The Loft has two closed bedrooms and a huge living area (dining room, living room combined, kitchen in its own area but still part of main room) and full bathroom. The whole loft is 1500 square feet. Very bright, one whole wall is windows. We have an artificial wood burning stove that looks real and is a very strong heater.
Please note that if you do not pay extra for the second bedroom, it will be locked.
Things provided include:
Coded entry system (no key needed)
Queen size bed with bedding and sheets
High speed Internet (wifi)
Things that have changed:
We no longer have the pinball machines
We have a different couch that replaced the sectional
$97/night for one bedroom (2 people), $30/night per person for the second room.
This is a great place to stay in an amazing and fun area of Montreal!
By the way, the photo of me is not taken at my place, it's my sister's house in the country.
We require a $300 safety deposit that Airbnb deals with in the event we decide to keep it. That rarely happens and has only in the past due to guests having parties. Our biggest house rule, NO PARTIES!!! Our place is great for them and it's tempting but they are not allowed. We also ask for an additional $50 cleaning fee that goes to the cleaner we hire after you leave (we pay her $75).
Please water our5 plants if you're there for more than a week. Thanks!
Pour notre première expérience avec Airbnb nous n'avons pas été déçus. Le loft d'Emily est bien situé dans Montréal proche des transports, des magasins et des points d'intérêt . L'espace à vivre est vraiment sympa, très spacieux et convivial . Emily est très disponible sur place et à répondu à toutes nos questions rapidement. Il y a aussi beaucoup de livres intéressants d'art. Nous recommandons ce loft original à tous ceux qui veulent vivre une expérience différente .
Fabulous airbnb experience all round. Emily was very communicative right from the start, and gave us helpful information about parking (which turned out to be very easy). Getting in was dead easy, and the loft was impeccable. Exactly as it appeared in the pictures, and felt like something out of a movie. We loved it.
The neighborhood was perfect for our 4 day stay. Very hip and funky with loads of brilliant bars, restaurants and coffee shops. Particular recommendations are SuWu (for happy hour cocktails and yummy food) and Restaurant L'Express.
We did explore the rest of Montreal but were happiest in the Plateau area around the apartment. We'll definitely be back!
Emily's place is great. Great location, beautiful unique space and has pretty much everything you will need. Entry to unit and building is very straight forward which was great for check-in/check-out. I would definitely stay here again. A bit noisy on the weekends from all the great bars in the neighbourhood but, that is perfect for a great weekend in Montreal.
I really really enjoyed Emily's loft. Right away, 'chez moi' and it was lovely coming home to everyday. It was clean and had everything I could want for cooking easily. I felt very safe even though it is a eventful area. the location was also perfect. I used the local shops and easy walking access to St. Denis and downtown. I would definitely recommend the loft to anyone looking for a great getaway in Montreal. :)
We had a great time at the loft. Everything came as advertised. It's in a great location, near the park and right next to the main drag on St. Laurent.
We had a great time at the loft. It's very funky and a great experience, a real blast from the past.
The location is perfect for getting about the plateau and very safe.
My godchildren came to visit and had a wonderful time exploring and running around they could make all the noise they wanted. They loved it.
Emily's loft was arguably the best Airbnb I've ever stayed in. It was meticulously decorated and satisfied our every need. We felt comfortable using the kitchen every morning, thanks to the large number of supplies available. The bed was very comfortable and the rest of the loft was extremely spacious. We're so glad we were able to explore the Plateau neighborhood. There aren't too many "touristy" things around, which forced us to explore a hip and independent part of the city we probably wouldn't have seen otherwise. Schwartz' Deli is right around the corner, as is a number of other culinary delights. It is about a 10-15 minute walk downhill to all of the major attractions in the city, and a stones throw away from McGill. It is almost not worth mentioning, but the lack of AC was the only downside, especially during a hot and humid July weekend. I'd imagine it is not an issue almost any other weekend in Quebec. All in all, I'd highly recommend staying at Emily's loft!

About the Host, Emily
I'm 33 and live with my husband. We will be going away a lot for work (art installations) and would like to rent our cool downtown plateau loft while we are not here.
