About this listing
This is the L Room. Why the L room? Because it's shaped as an L...You enter, a bunk-bed on your right, you continue, enter the second part and there to your left you have a double bed. Perfect for families or a group of friends. AND bonus: Your own private terrace!!! This is my favorite room.
The 9 1/2 B and B is like dropping in at friends place but not expected to spend anytime with them...When you get here, we'll show you the place, explain how it works, give you a virtual tour of the city on the map, answer your questions and then, wish you a good stay in Montréal...The spirit of a youth hostel but in the privacy of your room.
Our place is a 6 bedroom Bed and breakfast, but don't expect us to cook you breakfast, you make your own: we set out the goods the night before: Montreal's best bagels, jam, cream cheese, yogurt, juice, fruits, cereal, milk, and of course coffee an tea ...So no need to get up early, you can eat whenever you like...
The location is perfect, we are ON the boulevard, the Main as we call it, home to Leonard Cohen and Mordecai Richler, the hip Plateau neighborhood, and walking distance to the new hipsterhood, the Mile End. Everything is walking distance...The Mountain as we call it is just a couple of minutes away.
The french Lonely planet (Le Guide du Routard) says: "the gem we dream of finding in a city...." You won't be disappointed!!!
About the Host, Jean
A long long time ago, even before Airbnb even existed, I managed a youth hostel. There I realized that there was a strong need for private rooms but not necessarily with a private bathroom. A question of economy probably. So I went out and created the 9 1/2 Guesthouse. This is a Bed and Breakfast but with a youth hostel vibe. Breakfast is a self-serve formula, the towels don't match, and neither does the linen, and the kitchen is at your disposal if you wish to cook!! However the place is kept real clean and we definitely encourage a quiet and respectful environment.
We also rent out the entire space to groups. As you will see in the comments, people love the place. It is perfect for a weekend with friends, or a family reunion.
Looking forward to meeting you!
