Other Things to Note
AUGUST 2014. There is major construction on the street right in front of the building. Construction only happens during daytime and on weekdays. Please contact us before booking so we can give you an update. This construction should have been done months ago and it seems it wont be done now for some time. Depending on what the actual tenants are saying, we will be able to update you better of the situation.
NO smoking, NO pets and NO parties in the apartment. Thank you.
Super high ceilings, hardwood floors and large windows provide lots of natural light.
The apartment was very easily accessible-- the host provided very clear directions and helpful details about the neighborhood and Montreal. The apartment was neat, tidy, and cute. The wifi was easy to use. For overnight parking, I recommend using the nearby parking lots. Thanks for having us!
We had a wonderful stay in Montreal. The location of the apartement is great. It was clean and we enjoyed our stay very much. Communication was quick. The only con was that the wi-fi didn't work proper.
Loved this place. So close to everything. The owner was really nice too. Would definitely recommend to other people looking to stay in Montreal!
Lovely place. Clean and sunny. Comfortable bed. Great location close to metro and easy walk to many sites. Thanks for a wonderful stay in Montreal.
We didn't receive a welcome per se, but did find the apartment to be as pictured and well-equipped, particularly the kitchen. And the apartment itself was quite charming. The residence is in a remarkable 17th century building with all the great old charm you see in other French cities.
Things to note if you are considering this listing:
The outside of the building was a little rundown, and that end of Rue Berri was a little dicey. The basement liquor store two doors attracted vagrants that could often be observed milling up and down the sidewalk throughout the day.
The apartment had a poor wifi connection and the owner doesn't permit streaming of any kind. He claimed to be strictly monitoring each guest's usage (a little creepy). When we asked for help with the intermittent signal, we were curtly informed that this had never been an issue before. A maid came down the next day to check on the issue but couldn't do anything. She just confirmed it was spotty depending on where you were in the apartment.
The bed was horribly uncomfortable. One of those rock hard Ikea mattress wrapped in plastic. After a couple days, I was desperate for something else.
Hello Amy and Holly,
thanks for taking the time to give your feedback.
regarding the internet: normally it is very good, and i am surprised you say the signal is intermittent. It is the first time we read this and if it comes up again we will change the router. We are not monitoring everyone's consumption but ask people to not stream or download movies, if they want to do so, we ask them to pay a 5 to 15 $ extra for a "consumption block".
The beds: i am very surprised to read this. we have quality mattresses in all our apartments and get praise for the comfort of our beds. We do put waterproof- anti bed bug covers on all our mattresses and pillowcases, but this is obliged by law as we are one of the very few legitimate and legal short term apartments in Montreal and are controlled by the CITQ about these matters.
I am very sorry read that you didn't have a 5 star experience and I hope you will give us a second chance if you come back to montreal, in one of our 13 apartments.
This apartment is within easy walking distance of Old Montreal and great restaurants on St. Denis street. Freddie provided a very comprehensive visitors guide to the city, which we referred back to regularly during our visit. Freddie was a very responsive host! Very cute apartment.
We had a wonderful experience. It was seamless to get in and settled. The location was perfect. Lovely outdoor area. Apartment was a place I'd live in if I was in Montreal. Definitely would recommend to others.
