The Mile End Standard

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Rue Bernard Ouest, Montreal, QC H2V 1T5, Canada

This cute clean top floor apartment is in the heart of Mile End, directly above great local cafés, bookstores and record stores. Ideal for someone looking to stay in the city's cultural hub. Two balconies, in-suite laundry. Right by the 80bus. LGBT friendly. Bixi bikes right outside.

The Space

PLEASE NOTE BEFORE BOOKING:

Please inquire about the availability of the dates you're interested in BEFORE YOU BOOK.

If you're looking to stay in a really clean place that's in the center of a neighbourhood filled with artists and musicians this is your spot. You can walk downstairs to a delicious vegan restaurant run by my really sweet downstairs neighbour. I'll provide you with a list of local cheap eats and some of my favourite bars.

Guest Access

Upstairs from a delicious vegetarian restaurant "La Lumiere du Mile End" and "Le Dépanneur Café" both places serve as great spots to meet up with an old friend or work on your internet stuff while sipping on a latté and biting into a hardy vegan burrito or something like that. Like a meaty cheeseburger? Try Le Nouveau Palais across the street!

You might've noticed the back yard terrace in the photos. You'll have access to this, but please do not eat your own food here during the restaurant's opening hours.

Interaction with Guests

Depending on your arrival date, I might be out of town, but my best friend Patrick will be there to hand off the key. He's really sweet and runs a contemporary art bookstore in the downtown sector.

Of course - we'll provide you with clean sheets and towels for the duration of your stay.

The Neighborhood

The neighbourhood is really nice. I've lived in the Mile End off and on for the past 7 years and know pretty much everything about it. If you have any questions - just ask, I should know the answer by now.

Getting around

a minute away from the 80 bus on Avenue du Parc and the 55 bus on St-Urbain. I also have a Bixi Bike station located directly in front of my apartment.

  • Super appartement dans un quartier très sympa. Très propre et tout équipé. Rien à dire appart, "super".

  • Jonathan is very accommodating and easy to get along with. The apartment is lovely and in a great location to get around the city. I would absolutely recommend staying here, especially if you come while the weather is nice because there are two balconies.

  • Jonathan has created a warm and inviting space in Montreal. He is very easy to get in contact with, and is friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating. While we were there, Jonathan was out of town, so we only interacted with his friend, Patrick, who was also extremely helpful, attentive, and kind. Patrick met us at the apartment when our train rolled in to Montreal's central station. Patrick let us in and showed us the space. When we were leaving, Patrick even suggested a cab company and gave us the number. There is a helpful sheet of logistical information and dining and sight suggestions in the apartment, and we were glad to have such a concise and helpful guide.

    The space itself is decorated quite nicely. It sort of reminds me of a grandmother's home (not in a bad way), with older pieces and interesting details. I think another reviewer described it as "thrift store chic" which I would definitely agree with. We loved the dinosaur details throughout the apartment - what a fun touch. Keep in mind that the space accommodates 3 but with one single bed and one double bed. Beds were comfortable and clean and suited our needs perfectly after long days of exploring Montreal. We appreciated that towels were clean and some toiletry items were provided.

    The location (Mile End) is extremely quiet and felt very safe when we were there. Jonathan lists many fun restaurants and bars (we loved Nouveau Palais and the Royal Phoenix - what fun!) among others. We wish we could have tried the restaurant downstairs, but we never made it there.

    We didn't figure out or look up the bus system while we were there, but we did make great use of the metro which we found very convenient. This listing is fairly close to 2 metro stations (Rosemont and Outremont) but we ended up using Outremont because to get to the Rosemont station you have to take a bunch of stairs up to a highway sidewalk. Sights we enjoyed: St. Joseph's Oratory, Hotel de Ville, Basilica Notre Dame, St. Viateur Bagels, and La Banquise for poutine. I am currently dreaming of all the poutine I had in Montreal.

    The only drawback to this listing I can see would be for people with mobility issues. The stairs up to the apartment are quite steep, so if you have problems with stairs, you might want to consider a different listing or just be aware. Other than that, it was great, and I would definitely recommend this listing and stay here again.

  • Jonathan's apartment was very quirky and funky! He had a lot of interesting knick knacks to look at, a great record player and vinyl selection, and a Jenga game that we had a lot of fun with with our son. The local was great and quite central to some cool spots. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Everything was great!

  • Jonathan's place is great. It's spacious, clean and in a amazing location. Transit is really close, or you can spend your whole visit just walking around the neighbourhood and have a great time. I would definitely stay here again!

  • Appartement un peu modeste à première vue (un peu pauvre en matériel de cuisine, quelques petits trucs à raccomoder ici ou là) mais non sans un certain charme qui se diffuse au fil des jours... très Bohemian style, parfait pour Mile End!

    January 2014
  • My friends and I stayed at Jonathan's apartment over a weekend and had a great time. Te place was very clean and spacious, there was a great record collection, and the restaurant downstairs was awesome. Jonathan and his friend Patrick (who let us in) were very helpful - the list of things to do/places to eat and go out in the area were a nice touch.
