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.

The host met us there and showed us around the apartment. She was friendly, flexible with our arrival time and had prepared a folder of useful things to know about the apartment and the neighbourhood. The apartment was clean, of a good size and well-equipped and well-furnished. Overall our stay was great!
We enjoyed our stay at Marie-France's place a lot. Arrival was uncomplicated even though we got delayed. We loved the spacious place, especially the balcony! On ave Beaulieu (5-7min walk ) are some good restaurants + some bixis :)
Marie-France was very welcoming!! The neighborhood was safe and quiet. The whole apartment was very quaint and clean. There was even a little back-yard patio area which was great for morning coffee or breakfasts. The only downside was there was no A/C, the weekend that I was there was pretty hot (around 30 degrees). If you do not like the heat, this may not be the place for you. I would however still suggest this place to my other friends and co-workers who are looking to visit Montreal in the future.
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!
