Had a great time in Montreal staying at one of Gail's places. Although the apartment is not directly downtown it is in a healthy walking distance to almost everything. Gail was very helpful and quick with responses. The only downfall was that with the apartment having occupants in most of the rooms and so many people using the one bathroom it got a little dirty. Otherwise We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Montreal.
I highly recommend staying here! Gail is an excellent host. She was very helpful with everything and easy to get in touch with when I had any questions. She was there to welcome me even though I arrived late the first evening because of a late flight.
The room was nice and clean and so was the rest of the apartment. We were six guests the time I was there, but it worked out really fine. I never waited to use the kitchen or bathroom, and everyone cleaned up nicely after themselves. I enjoyed my stay here.
Gail is a great host. Very accommodating, and her communication was always quick & clear. I had several schedule changes in the days before my booking, and she re-adjusted the plans without a problem. The room was exactly as advertised, great location -- perfect for my needs. I'll definitely come back.
Had a great stay in my room at Gail's appartment. I found everything that I needed, and the Metro was just a short stroll away. Would definetly recommend staying there.
Gail is an excellent host. The room is a private room in an apartment where each room is being rented out for both short and long terms. The room was very clean and the place is pleasant and perfect if you are after a place to sleep. The room size was very nice (I had room no. 2) and I felt at home straight away. A nice terrace in the back makes the summer evenings even more enjoyable. The neighbourhood is slightly out of the centre of the city, but the bixi (shared bikes) stand is 20m away, so you can bike away in no time (and either go directly around, or head to the metro, about 5 min riding distance).
Beware that Gail hosts at several apartments around town, so in my case I had to wait a bit to get in as she had several arrivals overlapping. No tragedy especially because the communication was flawless and prompt, so it made the experience still very good, but if you have no phone with you make sure you have a clear appointment to get in, as she will only be there to meet you.
I strongly recommend the place if you are on a tight budget and want a clean nice place to sleep.
My flight landed late and Gail was very accommodating to make sure I got all the information I needed to get to the apartment. Once I arrived there, I was greeted by her and got a tour of the apartment and received towels. Good experience, good host, good location of the room. Would recommend!
WOW. This was a wonderful bedroom and I had a pleasant experience. It was close to the gay village, and Poutineville, and so much amazing goodness.
The apartment was stellar and I had a great stay. There was even a washer, so I could wash my clothes before leaving.
Gail was responsive, and overall a fantastic host.
There were other people also renting rooms in the apartment, but they were never loud and I barely noticed them!
