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.

We spend a few days in Montréal at Marie-France place. The weather was quite bad: snow was melting and the sky grey.
However our stay ends up very nice in great extent thanks to Marie-France flat. Cozy and colorful. Clean and functional. We simply loved the place.
Furthermore Marie-France was nice and helpful!
Appartement très bien. Tout y était. Merci!
Marie-France and Alain were wonderful hosts! Very accommodating and flexible. The apartment itself was spacious, comfortable and very clean. I highly recommend you stay at their place. Street parking was always easy for me.
It was a very good experience, I would def stay there again.
The apartment was amazing. Very spacious, clean and neat. It was minutes away from Beaubien bus stop which got you to the metro in just a short ride. There were many restaurants and cafes all around (I recommend trying La Grande-Mere Poule - their food was amazing). Marie-France and Alain were so nice when they welcomed me and were very accommodating during my visit.
This apartment is a great place to stay in order to get a real feel for Montreal. I cannot wait until I go back. I will definitely stay in this apartment again!
Superb accommodations, very clean, quiet, excellent amenities, absolutely perfect in a pleasant neighborhood. A big thank you to Marie-France for being a wonderful host and to Alain for all the information and advice, you are a real gentleman. Hope to meet again in the near future.
Great hosts. Very clean and quiet apartment in a nice neighbourhood. Easy to find parking on the street in front of the place. Plenty of public transport nearby to get into the city. Highly recommend this place and I'd love to stay here again one day. Than you Alain and Marie-France
Great place ! Pleasantly greeted by Alain.
The studio suited our needs very well. Clean, stylish, and a great retreat in the wonderful city of Montreal. Quick to get downtown and to many restaurants & bars. Alain was very kind an gracious. We would recommend this space.
Marie-France and Alain were wonderful hosts! The apartment was spotless when we arrived and came with everything we coud need - towels, dishes, appliances (coffee-maker, washing machine), neighborhood guide, fast Wifi, and several lamps and seating areas. The rooms were a good size for two people, and there is even a balcony!
Marie-France and Alain were extremely responsive, both over email and once we arrived. I would say the only drawback is that the neighborhood is a bit out of the way. But there are several buses nearby, and were happy to be able to come home to a charming, quiet neighborhood.
