This spacious 1 bedroom apartment of approximately 800 square feet (80 m2) is perfect for 2-4 guests but can comfortably accommodate 6 guests. Located on the ground floor of a beautiful Victorian building, the apartment has been completely renovated and tastefully furnished in 2012. Here the “modern design” and the “very old” mix perfectly. Super high ceilings, hardwood floors and two large windows provide lots of natural light. The building itself is old but maintained with care. No cold "condo" feel here!
BONUS: All the guests have access to the big courtyard, it’s very calm and has a table, chairs and a big tree… it will be a perfect and peacefull oasis after a good day of sightseeing!
The kitchen and bathroom have both been completely renovated with a modern touch. All stainless steel appliances are new and there is a dishwasher too! In the dining room there is a large table with 6 chairs. The apartment has been well thought out with plenty of storage space (big Ikea PAX wardrobe) and there is a small desk area.
The apartment can accommodate up to 6 adults but is ideal for 2 to 4 guests:
- one queen size bed in the spacious bedroom,
- one comfy sofa bed that sleeps 2 in the living room,
- 2 twin mattresses (real mattresses not air-mattresses) to be put on the floor.
For more privacy, there is a big opaque curtain to "close" the bedroom when needed.
INCLUDED: high-speed Wi-Fi internet access, HD TV 43 "with cable, sheets and towels, electricity, everything you need for cooking and cleaning. Free access to a washer and dryer in the building.
A fantastic supermarket is at only 5 minutes walking distance, a "dépanneur" (convenience store) is our neighbour and all the other services and stores you may think off are at hand! According to Walkscore, the apartment is located in a “walker’s paradise” with it’s 97% score!
It can sometimes get very quiet at night and guests travelling alone (especially female) may want to avoid roaming the streets after 11pm. Rare but possible: some homeless people do walk around this area as it's so centrally located close to downtown. Rather like New-York, it's not our proudest aspect of town, but know that Montreal is considered a very safe city!
We look forward to welcome you in this amazing space!
