About This Listing
Located within the so-called Golden Square mile, Montreal's trendiest area, this recently renovated apt Situated within walking distance from the trendy bars, restaurants and shops around Crescent Street.
The building itself offers residents a wealth of facilities, including a 20' waterfall in the grand courtyard, outdoor pool, a gym, as well as a party room, a roof-top terrace, an in-house grocery store and a dry cleaner.
The well designed modern apartment is accessible using the building's elevator and offers a fully equipped kitchen complete with a breakfast counter; a small dining area, a living/ bedroom area with a separate work-space and a restroom with a bath and shower cable TV, Internet and wireless Internet, heating and air conditioning also form integral parts of the excellent facilities offered.
This place served it's purpose. The location is perfect and the place is good enough. Not exceptionally clean. The couch folds into a bed, but it's really uncomfortable. Bottom line, it was cheaper than a hotel room and had a kitchen, living room, balcony and communal pool (didn't use it), but don't expect a luxurious apartment. For $20 extra per night, you can park in the lot which is helpful downtown.
Hankim was great facilitating our needs. We arrived early and he was able to provide an early check in. Walking distance to shops, main street and train. It was a safe area and easy to get around. Close to the museum of fine arts. We had a great time enjoying the pool as well as the balcony. Great space for 3 to 4 people. The Sofa bed is contactable enough for 2 average size people. We where 4 girls sharing the apt. our only restriction was lighting. Some lamps worked and some did not but we did have a lot of mirrors which is great for girls. Overall the place is comfortable, great location and I would stay there again.
Overall, our family had a good time in our one-week stay in Montreal and would like to thank Hakim for hosting us.
The main negative was the suite was not particularly suitable for our family of four guests, including one elder. The bed provided for two of our guest in the living room was a small sofa-bed that was uncomfortable and unfit for more than one people to sleep on; the quilts/blankets not enough for our four guests....when requested, only towels and a sheet brought in on the following day... As the result, two of our guest had to move to other hotel since the first day we arrived.
Hakim was responsive and very direct in communications leading up to our stay. We did not meet him as upon arrival he had us check in with the building’s concierge. When we picked up the keys, the concierge said that someone had made a “surprise check-in” the night before and so he only had two keys to the apartment and suggested we knock before entering to make sure there wasn’t a tenant in the unit. Two keys was plenty for us, but it was a little unsettling that a third was missing because someone may have stayed there the night before. No one was there and it was all made up so we brushed this off.
The apartment is fine and is for the most part, as picture. We felt like it could have been cleaner and there were some things missing, but nothing to make a big fuss about or anything that could ruin a trip. For example, there was only one cup in the kitchen, the shower curtain liner is ripped up and the tub drain is very slow. There is a gym in the building and we used it, but it is different from the one pictured. The location is particularly good if you want to be near downtown and McGill University.
Everything worked out fine for us here, but we would likely stay elsewhere next time.
Situé A deux blocs de la rue Sainte Catherine, le condo est au troisième étage, dans une résidence très agréable, calme avec un personnel serviable et chaleureux. L'appartement était propre et rangé à l'entrée, le lit est confortable et sain, la déco est sympa. Merci Hakim.
Le séjour a été a la hauteur de notre attente... Très bien situé au centre et a côté du métro.
Tout était parfait !!!
The condo is in a perfect location. It was exactly what i needed as I was in Montreal helping my nephew get settled in at McGill. This condo is close to everything and all the attractions were within walking distance. The extra was that Hakim was able to arrange for parking within the building ( at an extra cost)
