There are many other infos about directions, house rules, groceries and other points of interest in the neighborhood, in the other sections of the listing.
There is only 2 rules that I find important:
1 - The apartment has hard wood floors and the building is old (phone number hidden) was not the best year for walls's soundproofing. So I would appreciate that my guests don't walk in the apartment with leather shoes (hard soles). They are hard for wood floors and really noisy in the stairs. By the same time, try to not run in the stairs, especially evenings and nights. Slippers are availables in the entrance wardrobe.
2 - In the kitchen, there is also a wood countertop. Wooden countertops hate water. I protect them with special oil, from time to time, but it will help a lot if you can be carefull with the water on the countertop. Try to wipe water as much as possible after each (dish) wash. Thanks a lot.
Myself and two friends shared the apartment for five days in May. We had a beautiful time and we loved the apartment. Accommodations are as described and very comfortable, quiet and close to everything downtown. Our host was so incredibly accommodating at check in as our train arrived 40 min later than expected, so there was very short notice on the late arrival. She has been a prompt replyer throughout our entire contact history. There was a thoughtful list of her contact info, WiFi password, etc left next to the phone. I would highly recommend this listing and would love to stay again when in Montreal in the future.
Excellent location near old town, convention Centre, transit, St. Laurant and St Denis shopping and restaurants. Full kitchen, good internet access, and lots of hot water.
A friend and I spent one week at Lydia's appartement and it might be the best located appartement you can find for a cheap price. The metro Champ-de-Mars (one station away from the centre) is 2 minutes to reach and the old Montréal is almost "next door"!
The appartement is perfect for 2 persons but it's also good for 3 or 4 persons. I like the "old style" in particular, which is typical for a condo in this town. You really feel like a Montrealer. Every commodation needed are a few steps away.
Nothing more to add - book it!
Lydia was a great, responsive host. She lives in the same building and is easily assessable. The apartment was great - roomy, clean, and situated perfectly for exploring Montreal on foot.
Host was pleasant and welcoming and let us know she's available if needed. Home was beautiful and private. Located close to the Metro.
I had a great experience staying here for a week with 2 colleagues. We were in Toronto for a conference and had easy walking distance to the convention center. The metro nearby was also quite convenient for excursions around town, while the old town was great for grabbing a quick bite to eat.
Everything was as reported and Lydia made the experience very easy.
We were welcomed on our first night properly, but much later than the 3:00 entry to the apartment. The apartment was clean, lofty and very well situated in the old port. Very quiet, the bed in second bedroom should be improved as is was very noisy. The apartment is large so a bit hard to heat. Very steep stairwell to come in. I would recommend this apartment and their hosts. Once you know how the parking works, there is spaces available for free.
