  • We loved staying at Sylvie and Robbie's. The studio was immaculate, and exactly as described. Very well located, it was really practical for our visit to Montreal. Both Sylvie and Robbie were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

  • This was our first airbnb experience and WOW! What an experience! We were met by Robbie and shown to our beautiful accommodation. It was perfect! Everything was so clean and the bed was comfortable. Its was easy to get around on the Metro which was only a short walk away. Plenty of great restaurants and bars in the area. We would definitely stay here again!

  • This was a totally charming place to stay in Montreal. Located in a quiet neighborhood, yet only 2 blocks from Rue Mont Royal, it could not be a better location. We could park on the street ( Nice!) Should you tire of restraints there is a kitchenette here. Great WiFI and to top it off ,this unit has a little balcony that allows you to enjoy the weather or have a snack. The hosts are full of good ideas for visitors to the city.

  • Slyvie and Robbie's place was so perfect, I can't imagine a more romantic setting for a stay in Montreal! Sylvie was so gracious about our early arrival and made sure we were right at home. Robbie saved us a parking spot upon arrival and also on our return from a day trip to Quebec, which was above and beyond what one would expect. The apartment itself was spotless and so airy and comfortable. The bed is right next to the window overlooking the street, and I so enjoyed lying there peoplewatching through a lovely leafy green canopy from the overhanging trees blowing in the breeze. The mattress was so comfortable, too! Sylvie provided wonderful-smelling body wash and shampoo, which was a great convenience as I was running low on supplies at the end of our trip. The apartment is easy walking distance to the Metro Station on Ave. Mont Royal, and there are many restaurants on Ave. Mont Royal, too, which is one block from the apartment. The graciousness of the hosts and Sylvie's touch decorating the place made it perfect for me. Whenever I think of Montreal, this apartment with the view and comforts will be forefront in my mind. Thank you, Sylvie and Robbie, I certainly hope to stay with you again in the future.

  • My wife and I had a wonderful time in Sylvie and Robbie's comfy suite! The neighborhood is great and is in a wonderful location in the heart of the Plateau. The Metro is nearby and lots of great restaurants, cafes and other cute neighborhoods are within walking distance.

    Robbie is the master of parking coordination. Like any city, parking is an issue but Robbie made sure we had a place to park during our whole stay and helped us shuffle the car around around the notorious Montreal street cleaning schedule.

    The apartment is small but very relaxing and pleasant. The bath tub is SUPER comfortable. A nice window looks out over the street (which is not busy at all) and there's a little sitting balcony that's a pleasure to come home to when recovering from the adventures around town. It rained one day that we were in Montreal and just relaxing in our suite was a great way to spend the afternoon.

    Oh.. and there's excellent wi-fi.

    Tourist Tip 1: Unless you like bars (which we don't), avoid Mont-Royal Avenue for restaurants. The food is not that great and are expensive for the experience. We suggest finding smaller neighborhood corner cafes and restaurants in other quiet areas away from the action.

    Tourist Tip 2: We walked most places, but eventually figured out the Bixi bike rental system in town. It was a bit stressful to figure out for English speaking out-of-towners with mobile data roaming turned off on our iPhones. Consider finding a bike rental shop for longer-term rental options. Also, get all-day passes for the Metro so you can explore without ticket fees adding up.

    In short, we had a blast in town and enjoyed a wonderful relaxing recovery at Sylvie & Robbie's place.... We're sure you will too.

  • Very quaint studio in a great neighborhood in Montreal. Outstanding deal for the price. Robbie and Sylvie were the most gracious hosts we could have hoped to expect. Even a slight snafu with the washing machine turned into a positive experience because of their attentiveness. We now know where we're staying any time we come to Montreal!

  • Sylvie and Robbie were kind and hospitable. We were happy to discover that the studio was exactly as they described it. We will definitely stay here when we visit Montreal again!

  • Nous gardons un très beau souvenir de notre séjour rue Gilford ; le studio est vraiment très agréable, très bien équipé et parfaitement situé (quartier très sympa, près du métro et des bus). Et surtout, l'accueil de Sylvie et Robbie a été formidable ; jour après jour, nous nous sentions comme chez des amis.
