About This Listing
The apartment is fully furnished, including all bedding and towels. The apartment is always provided clean and tidy with the bed made with clean bedding and clean towels in the cupboard. There is wireless hi-speed internet with unlimited downloading. There's also an alarm clock radio. The bed is a double. There is a small fridge, double hotplate, large toaster oven, and regular toaster, plus dishes, pans, and utensils to cook whatever. There's a closet to hang clothes and to store bags etc.The studio is a comfortable and efficient space full of charm. In the daytime it is bright, thanks to the many windows, and cozy and intimate by night.
The studio is situated in the heart of the trendy Plateau neighborhood. The Plateau is the cultural heart and soul of Montreal. Physically, the studio is located at the epicenter of the city, so to get to all points on the Island is as efficient as can be. Notably Downtown Montreal is just an easygoing 20 minute walk away. Also it's only 20 minutes to walk to the cool hipster Mile End neighborhood. There's a couple of laundromats on Duluth street, a short block away. It's ten minutes to walk to Sherbrooke or Mount Royal Metro stations. It's five minutes to get to the 55 north-south bus and 10 minutes to get to the 80 bus on Parc Avenue, that circles the central core of the city day and night.
There are lots of long established cafes, boutiques and restaurants in the neighborhood, both cheap or upscale but all very good. A little stroll and you are at the hip Parc Jeanne-Mance and at the foot the Mountain (Parc Mont Royal; scene of the amazing Sunday Tam Tam gatherings in the summer months).
Perfect for temporary visitors, contract workers, students etc. For visitors planning on cooking, there's a supermarket on Duluth Street (a short block away) and also Segals (the cheapest in Montreal!) nearby on St Laurent (a five minute walk).
Smoking on the balcony please!
Prior to checking out:
It is helpful if any wet towels are left hanging on the shower curtain rail to dry. It is also appreciated when guests do their dishes, tidy and sweep up. Trash goes on the sidewalk next to the building on Hotel de Ville. Please leave any recycling (clean paper, plastic and metal) in the apartment and I'll take care of (website hidden) cans and beer bottles can be taken to the corner store on Rachel and Henri-Julien (turn right when you come out of 204 Rachel; its two little blocks down) and they'll give you the deposit money for them.
Thank you in anticipation of your kind attention.
Patrick's studio is amazing, very close to the subway and in a very safe neighborhood! Whenever I needed to talk to him he was a very polite and thoughtful.
Points positifs :
- appartement bien placé, au cœur du Plateau, pas très loin du métro.
- prix raisonnables pour l'endroit.
Points négatifs :
- accès difficile si gros bagages.
- cuisine sommaire, peu d'ustensiles et d'équipements.
- confort spartiate, chaises bringuebalantes, rideaux trop fins pour faire le noir complet dans la pièce.
- Wi-Fi très léger (connexion seulement possible sur laptop, impossible sur iPad mini).
- hôte "invisible" (absent au check-in et au check-out).
Rapport qualité/prix assez moyen, à ne réserver que pour de très courtes durées.
Cosy room, good shower, great location. Patrick was very flexible with check-in/out time. Would stay there again.
This was our second time staying at this apartment. Once again it was perfect. Great location, nice and warm (this is December after all), clean, with great natural light. Catches a bit of street noise, but nothing crazy. Neighbours are very quiet. Everything you need to have a coffee/tea at home before heading out is provided. There is even a bar fridge (very clean) and toaster oven if you want to save some money by eating in.
Patrick is easy to communicate with and responds promptly.
The next time we go to Montreal we will try to book this apartment again.
