The little Brooklyn of Montreal-
First rule: Enjoy your stay and feel at home-
The only other main rule is to leave the apartment the way you found it.
Treat it as if it were yours, or as if you're the next guest. That also has the advantage of making you feel at home.
In case there's a same day departure and arrival of guests, check-out time will have to be before noon, and subsequent check-in after 3pm. Time to prepare the flat for our next guests. If your day of arrival and/or departure is free, you're welcome to check-in or check-out at your convenience.
And of course it's a non smoking space. You can smoke on the small patio in front, but not inside the house please. Thanks.
I loved my time in Ralph's splendid little flat in Mile End! The flat is very well equipped with everything you could think of. Ralph is a great host and so easy going. Checking in and out was really flexible. The location is fantastic and close to the neighbourhood shops, restaurants and bars. I couldn't have stayed in a better place in Montreal! I can't wait to come back and stay here again!
My mom and I absolutely loved staying at Ralph's flat for Mother's Day weekend! It was so cozy and in a great location. Ralph was so accommodating--the flat had everything from sheets and towels to wine and snacks!
Thanks, Ralph! We'll definitely be back!
Ralph was an amazing host! I stayed in his apartment with a colleague for a work trip, and we were thrilled by this little haven in Mile End. Ralph had set out fresh bread and fruit for us upon our arrival, was extra helpful with neighborhood suggestions, and made check in and check out extremely easy. It was a pleasure to stay...and we both agreed we got the best sleep ever!! If you have the chance to stay here, don't hesitate!
This splendid little flat in the Mile End area was the perfect place for our one-week stay in Montreal. The space was clean, cozy and comfortable. Ralph is a great host and easy to talk to and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. This flat is located in a great neighborhood with many nice cafés, shops, and restaurants nearby-- we enjoyed exploring all the neighboring blocks. I would definitely be interested in staying here again the next time I have a chance to visit Montreal.
In short, this was my favorite Airbnb experience so far, and I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
My partner commented that it was perhaps the first time where a space was even *better* than it seemed in the listing. It's calm, bright, and thoughtfully put together. We walked around discovering little details here and there and thinking about what we'd like to incorporate in *our* home.
The kitchen was unusually well-stocked with basics. There was a washer/dryer (!) in the bathroom — super helpful, since we pack pretty light. Ralph was extremely accommodating about a late check-out, which meant an even easier time enjoying Montréal on our last vacation (non-conference) day.
The neighborhood is delightful. It's an easy walk to a variety of places: métro, park (went for a terrific run there with plenty of other runners), the zillion vegan restaurants nearby (we're both vegan and ate VERY well here).
We've really enjoyed Montreal the two times we've visited, and the next time we go, this will be our first choice for a place to stay.
The place is very homy, well decorated and full of nice little attentions like a full breakfast ( cereals, bread, jam, coffee, tea, fruits) and nice bottles of fresh water waiting for you. It was so lovely staying at Ralph 's place. I saw all the very good reviews before and this is why i picked this place besides the amazing location for the price and space. This is all true. I highly recommend it.
They bring in their flour from Naples and they make the best pizzas in town. Nice homemade ginger drink.
They manage to blend together ingredients that you thought were not edible from Québec's forests and farms, with incredible elegance and great tastes. I personally love it.
It depends on the people. Some love it, some hate it-
A slightly trashy bar that we all love-
Been there for the past 30 years!
Some love it, some are unmoved. Little dishes of nicely put together things. It's hip. I prefer Café Sardine.
Casual neighbourhood bar with a good kitchen.
A straight forward supermarket, if you're stuck at an hour when Latina is closed.
For quick very nice Paninis, made with much love and care, and a very sympathetic owner. The coffee is as strong as you can imagine a raw italian coffee to be.
One of the better and most known local microbrewery in Montreal. Beautiful beers. Steps away.
You must try the Trout+Labneh Sandwich!
And if there's no place inside, there's a terrasse in the back! If not, take-out!
As for the little chocolate fudge, it's made in Heaven.
A more hip bar.
The indie venue!
The other indie venue.
Small café. Internet access and people gently working away. You may stumble on local writers and other oddities. For the calmer coffee than Olympico or Social Club.
Coffee-Coffee-Coffee- Meaning even almost better coffee than Social Club. And every local artist taking a break as well.
Coffee-Coffee-Coffee. Meaning good coffee.
And every local artist taking a break.
Nice and Neat. Great cooked dishes ready to heat and eat. A good choice of interesting and good quality things, like oils, teas and biscuits.
Organic Organic Organic. Some fruits, some veggies, and everything else, from foods to oils, to soaps and creams.
The BEST Ice cream Master in town. Maybe in the world!
A very gentle frenchman with his Vietnamese wife. A must! Even if it's -10 degrees outside!
Vegetarian and good at it!
Eat something or simply have a drink in what the hip montreal crowd calls home.
SPICES! If you're mad about spices, this company from San Francisco gets amazing spices from across the globe! To take home-
Homemade Korean cuisine at its best. Convivial, courteous service and very good wines. I love the spicy salmon and she loves the chicken dish.
Have you ever tried real Lebanese cuisine? If you come from the States chances are you haven't. Please do!
And if you tell him Ralph sent you, you get free dessert-
If you're a meat eater, you cannot pass by this restaurant. A jewel of Québecois innovative meat cuisine. Loved around the world.
Euh.. You know Schwartz.
Try to go at off-hours if you don't want to wait in line for a long long time. Or walk into the smaller space on the left!
