Gail is kind and nice, she told me plenty of details about travelling. The location is good to the early flight. Pretty good choice.
Great room, great value, great stay.
I was in town for a weekend conference so all I needed was a safe place to crash everyday and it works perfectly for that!
The room is in a shared house only a 2 minute walk from the Charlevoix metro so it is very convenient to commute anywhere in the city. Gail even picked me up from the metro and showed me around the neighborhood on our way to the house when I arrived.
The room is good sized and exactly as it is described and looked, the shared bathroom and kitchen have everything you need and are in good condition. The other house mates are quiet and respectful, the free WiFi was always reliable, the neighborhood is nice even late at night and you are also minutes from a nice bakery/cafe just down the street by the metro. I would definitely stay with Gail the next time I'm in Montreal!
A great place for two people. Reasonable price. We stayed in Gail's for five nights. She is a friendly, responsible and informative host. Everything looks the same as the provided photos on website. The room is cozy with sunshine every morning. Restroom is clean. The location is quiet, safe, and convenient. Only two minutes walk to Metro, 10 minutes walk to farmer's market, good brunch restaurants, and pantry. Free parking space is a plus. Recommend this place to travellers.
Gail was very quick in responding to me. The place was as described and a very good location. I had a car and was able to park beside the building for free, which was very important to me. Gail was flexible with many things, just communicate and feel free to ask her. Again, my second time staying at Gail's and it is a great place to stay in Montreal (Winter or Summer).
Gail was great, a great hostess. Everything was as listed; good room-mates; great location. I highly recommend Gail's place!
A wonderful experience. Gail is a super host. I arrived in Montreal earlier than my original estimate, and Gail dropped everything to meet me at the apartment and help me settle in. You will have wifi access and you can park right next to the building. A subway station is a few blocks away, and it is easy to figure your way around the city (even for the first- timer). The room was great too, with plenty of shelf and closet space. The bathroom was clean and orderly, and my fellow roommates were friendly and considerate.
The space was warm and home like. Would definitely stay there again. Gail was a great host.
