My friend was in from Paris and we decided to do a last minute road trip with nothing planned. We drove to 2 countries , 4 states and many towns. One morning we decided montreal !! We booked a room and it was cancelled last minute , Gail came to the rescue and provided us with a great 2 room place on short notice, she even let us check in early just to use the bathroom to freshen up after a 6 hour drive. She gave us great recommendations on what to do in town!
Perks, 2 bedrooms, wifi, AC, a small back deck, laundry in unit, easy parking and many other small amenities that Gail offered graciously! Everything was easy to get to driving , biking, or a walk to the metro!
Thank you Gail!
Only con.... If you have to write one ????? No living room.... But honestly if you need a living room you're not experiencing Montreal !
Great place to stay! Gail was very helpful. The apartment was clean and close to bus stations

+Gail was very friendly and responsive.
+Close to the Universite de Montreal.
+Price can't be beat.
+Clean and comfortable.
-A little hard to get to/from airport, as well as the downtown area.
Gail est sympathique, par contre l'appartement est assez vétuste, ne correspond pas tout à fait aux photos.
Le ménage de la chambre et de la salle de bain n'était pas fait à notre arrivée, et pourtant il était tard.
La collocation s'est bien passée avec une étudiante chinoise sympathique malgré les odeurs de cuisine...
Le quartier n'est pas le plus touristique de Montréal, il faut prendre le bus et le métro pour se déplacer, ce qui correspond au prix. Si vous recherchez un endroit pas cher pour dormir cela convient très bien.
Gail was very kind. Apartment is very clean and organized. Perfect for UdeM students. Might be far for tourists.
The apartment is great and well facilitated; spacious bedroom, nice kitchen with all sorts of appliances, and a very nice balcony (for during summer time).
I found Gail's service less apt. Despite having notified her of my time of arrival, she was not there to let me in when I arrived. I had to wait for the other tenant to come home to get in the apartment. This did not only happen to me, but also to my flatmate who I had to let in the building when he arrived. The internet jammed at some point and we had to rely on luck for it to be restored.
All in all I do think Cote des Neiges is a good deal and worthy of a recommendation, especially for those with business at HEC since its proximity with the university. I hope Gail will hone her hostess skills for a truly wonderful experience.
