We did not end up staying here, but were upgraded to the "Best Location Stuido Apartment" at the last minute. So, that being the case, I am actually giving a review of a different apartment. Patrick left the keys at this apartment for us to pick, which was quite difficult at 8.30 pm after a day of air travel and not knowing the city. But we ended up finding buses there and a taxi from this apartment to ours.
Patrick was a wonderful host! His place is very comfortable with lots of cool art. Patrick is a generous, easy-going person, always making sure you have what you need. The location itself is great! In awesome mile end neighbourhood... there are coffee shops close by, bagels, restaurants, interesting shops... and it is easy to get downtown (one bus ride)... metro is a short walk away.
Patrick welcomed my girlfriend and I in his apartment in Montreal for 5 nights. To say the least, the description is very accurate: the place is indeed groovy and Patrick's good vibes will let you have a very quiet stay in this beautiful city.
In addition to being a very nice host, Patrick was very helpful (we did not know the neighbourhood). We recommend his place if you want to stay in Montreal.
Nous avons passe un très bon séjour chez Patrick, dont nous avons beaucoup apprécié la flexibilité: nous avons réservé notre AirBnB a la dernière minute et Patrick a été très réactif. Il ne pouvait pas nous accueillir lui-même mais a fait en sorte que nous puissions trouver les clés quelle que soit l'heure de notre arrivée. Nous ne l'avons pas vu pendant le weekend, car il était occupe, et nous avons été nous-mêmes très peu a l'appartement, mais il a été très réactif par téléphone/ sms quand nous avons eu besoin. Nous ne l'avons rencontre qu'au moment de partir, avec plaisir.
