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!
For our first time in Montreal, the location was perfect. We were a 20- to 25-minute walk from most of the city's major tourist destinations and St. Laurent is home to a number of great bars, restaurants and shops. The loft is also conveniently next to an upscale liquor store and across the street from a market.
A testament to the City and the area, we had no trouble asking around for recommendations. Moreover, locals seemed to want to host and ensure a great experience. I would highly recommend staying here to small groups of friends looking for a weekend away!
The loft itself is uniquely decorated, as depicted, which mirrored the funky, young vibe of the neighborhood. We're from New York City, and were reminded of Brooklyn. The bedrooms are not huge, but certainly adequate for two in each room, and the main space is perfect for a dinner in or cocktails before a night out.
Emily was a great hostess. She answered all of our pre-arrival questions, and let us have the space to ourselves once we arrived. She also provided a number of Montreal travels books, which would have been very helpful if we spoke French!
Overall, we had a wonderful time in the loft and in Montreal! Highly recommend!
A lovely place, I enjoyed it a lot. The loft is very big and pleasant, and beautifully designed. Everything we needed in terms of food, groceries, cabs, and what not was in short walking distance from the building, including many places that are open 24/7 or late at night. Communication with Emily was quick, reliable, and helpful. Had a very good visit overall. Hope to make it back there soon.
Emily place is quite unique. Very warm and inviting when you get through the door.. Once I arrived I kinda thought of it as the reincarnation of Andy Warhol's silver loft. The build is mixed between commercial and residential and rehearsals spaces. The noise levels was not to bad. Thursday was kinda noise but still reasonable noise levels. The neighbour was friendly when I walked out of the loft. He Introducing himself.
I've been to Montreal several times but never really spent much time in the Plateau-Mont Royal area. Wish I had discover the area sooner. Lots to do and see in see in the area. If your into graffiti art its a great area to take in all the works of arts on the sides of buildings. There are plenty of restaurants in the area.. The loft is close enough to the downtown area just a short uber or transit ride away.
The next time I return to Montreal I would definitely try and stay at Emily place again if it's available..
Emily's loft was awesome. It's really central to Montreal, and the neighborhood is full of great places. Great little spot. Emily was always very quick to respond to questions. And everything was ready for our arrival. We had a great trip!
The flat itself is just as advertised. In a cool part of the city, great decorations, well-heated, communication with Emily was A+. I loved the flat. But unfortunately it is very loud, hence the four stars. You will hear the neighbors' entire conversations. From 3 pm on you will hear their bad music, including loud drum beats and nightly "band practice." This will stop around 11 pm, at which point you will hear patrons from the bar down the street going to and fro under your window, yelling at each other in the foulest language imaginable, until 5 in the morning. Weekday mornings are quiet, but that's the only time. If you are noise averse like myself I would not recommend this place; it's too much to handle. If you are more easygoing, it is a better place to be.
All the previous reviews are accurate. This is a great place to stay if you're looking for location and creative vibe! If it gets a bit loud, you can just turn on the white noise machine in the bedroom. The kitchen is well-stocked and there's no shortage of local ingredients within a few blocks. If you don't feel like cooking, there's a coffee breakfast and lunch place in the lobby. The conversation there can get pretty interesting too. If you need a dose of inspiration, this is the place to be.
This loft is fantastic for those looking to stay in a unique, functional, clean and perfectly located apartment! Emily was extremely helpful throughout the booking process and responded within the hour to any inquiries I had during my 5-night stay. The bed is very comfortable and noise was not an issue as you should understand that you are staying at one of the busiest intersections in downtown Montreal. The entire apartment was very clean, the kitchen had all the cooking equipment I needed, and it was easy to feel right at home. I was also pleasantly surprised by the fact that in the middle of a very cold Montreal winter, the entire space was well-heated! Thanks again 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.
