Common areas of the building have been fully renovated. I have a 1000sq foot apartment right next to Grand Prix Crescent street, Mont Royal mountain. It's a 5 minute walk to the main shopping district on Rue Saint Catherine, 5 minute walk to the bars and entertainment district on Crescent street. It is also walking distance to some of the Jazz Festival locations.
The building is in concrete so it's very quiet. You may come in and out at any time of the day or night.
Top floor of a 6 story building (with elevator). It is a 2 bedroom apt. with a fully-equipped kitchen (plates, cutlery, coffeemaker, stove, oven, fridge etc ), dining area, and a balcony with a full bbq that you are free to use and some chairs outside to enjoy the breeze.
Please note that the living room has been modified. The furniture you see is still in the room but I added a desk and wallboard for my business use. It is important that you know this in advance and are ok with it because I can't move it away for short guests stays.
Also, a previous guest has noted the brick work, it was completed last year. There are no renovations in progress. The entrance and hallways were completely updated.
Simply amazing! If you are looking for something convenient, with someone as accommodating as Xavier this is the place!
Both Xavier and Olga were very nice and responsive, and the apartment is in an excellent residential location (quiet but very close to the arts district and Mont Royal). We enjoyed our stay and would like to stay here again on our next visit! However, future guests should be aware that the apartment is an older building, so the bathroom etc are not super up to date if that is important to you, there is not cable tv but you can stream content using wifi to a tv in the living room, and the apartment has been reconfigured so that the 2nd bedroom is a storage room (there is still a bed in it so conceivably could be used but there is a tremendous amount of exercise gear/bikes etc in there) and the living room is mostly an office. For our stay, we had a small miscommunication with Xavier that we had another person in our group, so we simply had the 3rd person in our group sleep on the couch (there are two in the living room so it wasn't a problem), and we loved the location enough that overall our stay was very pleasant. Both Olga and Xavier were very responsive to our questions, and there is a parking space in the garage which is very convenient and safe. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in this district of the city, as well as families since both Mont Royal and a nice community playground are all in walking distance.
Great host. Very convenient location. 5 min walk to everything. Free wifi and phone calls.. Spent very little time other then to sleep a few hours in the morning... :) too much fun kicking it in the city for Grand Prix.... Affordable place and clean..
Xavier's apartment is located right next to downtown Montreal, couples blocks away from St. Catherine, where all the shops are, and the nightlife district Crescent st. We had a great experience staying there!
La localisation est parfaite, quoique en haut d'une grande côte. Donc si vous séjournez avec une poussette, fauteuil roulant ou tout autre problème de santé, ceci est bon à savoir.
Les lits sont confortables et les chambres sont grandes. Par contre l'état général de l'appartement est plutôt mauvais: très encombré, énormément de bazar personnel, un nettoyage qui laisse à désirer, des travaux sur l'immeuble, et le fait qu'il fasse très chaud dans cet appartement. Mais vous pouvez facilement faire abstraction de ça pour un court séjour et profiter de Montréal. D'autant plus que certains de ces points ne sont pas du tout de la responsabilité de l'hôte.
Pour autant, nous n'avons pas du tout apprécié le fait que Xavier nous laisse le lave-vaisselle plein (de sa vaisselle) et sa vaisselle de midi sale dans l'évier...
Ceci dit, si vous ne vous concentrez que sur la localisation, je recommande cet endroit.
Thank you very much for your stay Coralie! I was pleased to have you over. In response to your feedback, I will add a disclaimer on the listing profile stating that there is a desk and personal items in the living room. I will make sure that there are no items in the dishwasher in the future. At this date, the balconies have been replaced and all renovations are completed.
Xavier has a very nice apartment, and although we never met him, his mother was plenty helpful and got us all setup with everything we needed to know. The apartment has parking in the garage underneath which was very convenient, and had two very spacious rooms and beds which were very accommodating. Well worth the price, and I would definitely stay here again the next time I visit!
Great location!! Unfortunately, photos do not fully represent the apartment.........opposite the lovely couch, the wall and floor space is filled with personal work boards and computers. Bedrooms very good size, but bathroom and kitchen did not feel properly cleaned.
