Interaction with Guests
I meet all my guests as they arrive anytime during the day or night. Give them the wifi code, answer any questions they have and explain where they are downtown and the best spots to visit.
The Atwater Market area of downtown is a real gem with trendy places to eat out, morning coffee and croissant at the Market, bike rental provided by the city is on every 2nd corner. The metro has 2 lines both orange & green so going anywhere doesn't require a change of metro car. Parking is free in this part of downtown.
A major metro stop is just across the street from the house, both the orange & green line are here which means no transferring once you get on the metro. The airport bus stops across the street on a 24/7 schedule.

Apartment is almost right across the street from a metro station, and is s very compact, so a lot depends on how clean and considerate they are - during my stay the fridge was a mess and one of the guests left dishes in the sink often. Room is smallish but clean.
The room and bathroom was clean. The metro station Lionel-Groulx was right around the corner so getting around Montreal was very easy. Gail was very accommodating with my check-in and check-out time. Communication was also very efficient and easy. The apartment in located on a busy street so it can get a little bit noisy in the morning because of traffic. Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to lay their head at night.
Gail is a super nice and responsible host. I highly recommend this airbnb to budget travelers. The location is perfect for first-timers to Montreal taking the airport shuttle and city transit as the shuttle's first stop is where the BnB is at, and a major Metro stop is kitty-corner from the bnb.
To get to the workshop I attended at Rene-Levesque Blvd and rue Guy, it took a comfortable 20 mins to walk (or transit at just 10 mins), and there is an excellent public market and grocery (plus a Subway, McDonalds, etc) 5 min walk away.
The room I was in was good enough. The floor (with shared kitchen and b/r) had some 'old house' scruff but it was clean as best as possible and good enough. A nice bonus was having a washing machine available on the floor w/ outside drying or machine drying upon request.
I would highly recommend to bring noise-cancelling earbuds as it was quite noisy in the front room where regular earplugs and window fan didn't block out enough (I recommend that when traveling, anyway), and if you have difficulty with stairs or have a lot of heavy large suitcases, the steep stairways to the rooms would likely be a challenge. Also, a movable fan (besides the fixed window fan) in the room would be very helpful on during the humid summer nights.
My stay was wonderful. I stayed here on a short business trip and it was just what I needed. I had an earlier flight than expected and Gail was nice enough to accommodate my early arrival. The location was great, just one bus stop to the flat from the airport and the metro was close and convenient. The room is cozy and clean. The bathroom is a shared bathroom, so I had to wait my turn a couple times but not a problem at all.
Gail was always worried about my arrival and the way how to move in the city
Nice room for the price. Really well situated in Montreal with the Lionel-Groulx station.
I would try to book it again on my next trip.
