About this listing
Rosemont neighbourhood :
The appartment is located in Rosemont neighbourhood. Rosemont is north east from downtown. From the appartment, in public transports, you can get downtown (let's say McGill Station) in about 30 minutes, to Berri-UQAM Station in 25 minutes and to the Plateau neighbourhood (Mont-Royal Station) in 20 minutes.
Rosemont is more residential than the downtown area, but it is definetly an urban setting. At a walking distance from the appartment you will find plenty of restaurants and stores, some bars, a cinema, Bixi stations and a lot more. There are many buses at less then 5 minutes from the appartment that can take you to a subway station (Rosemont, Beaubien, d'Iberville, Frontenac) in 10 minutes.
The Botanical Garden is located in Rosemont neighbourhood. You can access it with the bus in 5 minutes.
Rosemont, like most of Montreal neighbourhoods, is very safe.

Nous avons passé 3 nuit chez Marie Pierre et nous sommes enchantés de notre séjour. Marie Pierre nous a très bien accueillie malgré notre arrivée imprévue a 1h du matin ! L appartement est grand très propre et bénéficie de tout l équipement utile. Je recommande vraiment !
This was our first experience with airbnb which we absolutely enjoyed. We stayed at Montreal for 5 days at Marie-France and Alains apartement. We had a warm welcome in Montreal, Marie-France and Alaine are very good hosts, accomodating and friendly persons. It was easy getting the keys and there were also some notices prepared in the apartement with a lot of information (where the nearest bus/metro station is, restaurants, markets, wifi code, ...). The apartment is really nice with a small balcony and well prepared with everything you may need for cleaning/cooking. Our baggage delayed and it was a pleasure for us after a long flight that towels were prepared in the apartement and we could take a shower. The neighborhood Rosement is nice and after a short orientation also easy to go to the city centre. It was a pleasure meeting Marie-France and Alain. Our overall experience is really great. We would definitely recommend staying there, and would not think twice staying there again.
Great apartment in the north. Very private, large. Great amenities in the area. Possibly the best bakery I've ever eaten at!
The appartmet is nicer than it looks in the pictures and it has everything you may possibly need to cook/clean. Marie-France is so accommodating and warm, it was a pleasure meeting her. Our overall experience was great! The neighbourhood is quiet and there's easy access to the bus/metro system. The notebook with advise was a very thoughtful addition.
Très bon séjour !! Surprise quand on a vu la taille de ce studio immense !! Le logement est vraiment spacieux, le quartier est calme et à proximité du centre (env 10min en voiture) les transports à proximité également. Nous avons été très bien reçu. Si nous revenons sur Montreal nous reviendrons très sûrement ici.
I stayed at Marie-France and Alain's place for four nights when I visited Montreal. The apartment is excellent: very clean, comfortable, and larger than I had anticipated. The neighborhood (Rosemont) is very nice, safe, and has lots of good restaurants. Marie-France and Alain were excellent hosts; they were communicative beforehand, greeted me upon arrival and helped me get oriented to the area. One thing visitors should be aware of is that while conveniently close to the bus stop, it takes a fair amount of time to travel between here and say, downtown or old Montreal (particularly at night when the buses don't run as often). But overall, I would definitely recommend staying here and will probably try to book this place next time I'm in Montreal.
Marie-France et Alain were great hosts. They welcomed us warmly right away with the keys and ready to help with any questions that we might have. The studio was cute and as in the pictures from the posting. It was clean and we were provided with everything that we might need during our stay (towels, kitchen supplies, etc). The thing that we found helpful was the guide book with all the main information in the neighbourhood (main telephone numbers, cafes, restaurants, etc) and short descriptions. The balcony was charming. We had free wifi the whole stay. Our communication with the hosts was nice and easy. Overall we are pleased with our choice and would recommend this place, for the hosts, place and the cute neighbourhood.
