  • This is our best AirBnB yet! Every detail looked after, very comfortable and welcoming. Quiet street, facing south, beautiful location. An excellent place to stay for an extended period of time as it has all the conveniences. Sylvie and Robbie are great hosts and great to talk to. The location is very convenient, 5 minutes walk along very pretty streets to the Mont-Royal subway station. We had a very enjoyable stay!

  • Sylvie & Robbie were both wonderful hosts. Robbie was ready for us when we arrived and easily available if we needed anything, even basic questions about the city. Sylvie was such a delight to talk to. The room was exactly as pictured, so cozy and comfortable and quite literally a doll's house in the way it is styled. Everything you could need for a weekend is provided and the care they have taken really makes you feel like you are on a pleasant vacation. The neighborhood is quiet and pretty and about less than 5 mins from the subway station and less than ten-fifteen minutes from the core of downtown Montreal. I choose this location for its location, setup and the great reviews and it did not disappoint.

  • We have stayed here before and will certainly stay again. Love it! It's perfect for us. The neighbourhood is great. The location is ideal and there is so much to do just a walk or metro ride away.

  • Had a wonderful stay at Sylvie and Robbie's place in the Plateau area of Montreal. It was exactly as it appears in the pictures, clean, comfortable, and very quaint. Both Robbie and Sylvie were very helpful and the location was wonderful. Central, but quiet and pleasant. I highly recommend Sylvie and Robbie's cozy studio.

  • Our stay at Sylvie and Robbie's studio was quite lovely. As another reviewer mentioned, the photos very accurately depict the studio itself. It was clean and well-stocked with water, juice, beer, coffee, tea, toiletries and plenty of towels. We only stayed for the weekend, but for those staying longer there is a washing machine and dryer in the apartment as well. There is a window air conditioning unit which comes in handy when the sun streams through in the morning. The balcony is great, but be forewarned that it is shared with the neighboring flat and separated by only a thin divider (your privacy may be compromised a bit).

    The neighborhood was great! Just blocks away from a lovely stretch of Rue Mont-Royal and the Metro station of the same name. We were able to walk back from the Old Port without trouble. It really is a quiet little respite in the middle (email hidden)ly neighborhood.

    We didn't meet Sylvie, but Robbie was great. He stayed up until 12:30 AM to accommodate our weather-delayed arrival and was very helpful in providing us with restaurant and activity recommendations. He was also kind and friendly-- what more could you ask!

    All in all, a great stay.

  • Sylvie & Robbie are wonderful hosts. I was later than my intended arrival, due to car trouble, and they were gracious despite having to wait! The apartment is gorgeous - clean, airy, and full of light! I enjoyed some pleasant times with coffee on the balcony. The location is perfect - walking distance to all of my favourite MTL haunts. I will definitely be staying here again.

  • Highly recommend this studio! It was lovely and exactly as pictured. Extremely comfortable bed, lovely little balcony with table - perfect for breakfast or evening beverages al fresco. Studio comes equipped with a microwave, fridge/freezer, washer and dryer, bathroom with shower and tub. It's in an ideal location, right in the heart of the Plateau. Sylvie and Robbie were great hosts! Sylvie was very communicative, and so nice and flexible when we needed to extend our check-out time a bit. Robbie showed us around the apartment and provided us with recommendations of activities, restaurants, bars, etc. Wonderful experience! We will definitely be staying there again on our next trip to Montreal.

  • Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans le studio du 2ème étage. L'appartement est très agréable, joliment décoré, bien équipé et très propre. Il est situé dans un quartier très agréable et proche du métro. Nos hôtes étaient très disponibles pour répondre à nos questions. Si nous revenons à Montréal, nous reviendrons sans hésitation dans cet appartement !

  • Beautiful and spacious studio apartment! Great location and close to restaurants and shopping. Robbie was a most welcoming and thoughtful host. The apartment was well stocked, bright, airy and clean with the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept on. Hope to return soon!

  • My husband and I stayed in this lovely studio for one week in August. It was easy to find and Sylvie met us on the street and found parking for us. We left the car there all week and used the wonderful metro system to travel around the city. The metro stop is close enough to the studio. The accommodation itself was perfect. It was very clean and well-stocked. We had everything we needed. The building is really charming, as is the neighborhood. We absolutely loved sitting on the balcony for breakfast and in the evenings. The neighborhood is quaint and quiet. There is also a fabulous restaurant practically next door with amazing dinners and brunches (on weekends only). Overall, I would highly recommend this place and would hope to stay there again!
