Old Montreal is, as you probably guessed it, the old part of Montreal. It is where the city was born, in fact it's the starting point of many things. Very few of the early buildings (mid 1600) remain, many fires have swept through old Montreal in the early days, but there's still a lot of buildings from different eras. There's a large variety of buildings, of different styles and functions, from public buildings (the old courts, city hall, etc) to more commercial buildings (the old stock exchange, board of trade, etc). Most of the buildings' are from the 17th century to early 20th century, although there are some modern buildings. Those different buildings in old Montreal really represent the evolution of the city.
There are many interesting things to do, mostly visiting museums and historical buildings, walking around and taking in the sights (and eating...). Many family activities take place in the old port : special exhibitions, biking, rollerblading, etc. Most of the activities are held at the King Edward pier in the old port. The Jacques-Cartier pier is mostly used for some special events, there's also a place for lunch and an information desk.
Old Montreal can get very crowded and very touristy during the summer since this part of town is full of tourists, so if you are the type of visitor that want to stay away from the other tourists, better visit old Montreal in the off season or early in the day because it's worth it. But there isn't much going on outside the tourism season (between October and April) so you won't see many people walking in the streets. During the off season, the museums are still open as are the most restaurants and bars (but with limited hours) and there are activities that you can do just during the winter (like skating in the old port for instance).

Excellent location in a high end building with a pool. The place is just as pictured, and check-in/check-out was simple via the doorman. Very easy experience.
Hakim's apartment was spacious, modern and in a great location. I would recommend staying here as it's close to Old Montreal.
Très bien situé ,appartement propre et très agréable. Nous y avons passé un bon séjour.
The apartment was fantastic -- very nice building, clean, comfortable. The location was superb. We only wish we could have stayed longer!
Great apartment, and fantastic location. We had a great time!
Hakims place is exactly as photographed--perfectly clean, quiet and amazing location to walk anywhere! Easy meet/exchange, plus great building facilities. Would recommend anyone to stay there :)
I hope to return again!
The space was in a great spot. The building and everything was great. Many thanks to Hakim who was quite accommodating. Will stay there or one of the other properties next time im in MTL
It was worth every single penny I spent. Don't waste your time to find another apartment. Just book it. Great place, excellent location and great value. If you need a parking spot, ask Hakim for it. Parking in downtown Montreal is expensive. Highly recommended!
Great place as advertised. Near the metro, clean, internet and cable worked, all electronics worked. Hakim was helpful with our early arrival too. Would have loved some local suggestions but it didn't take long to find good spots in Montreal. Pool and steam room looked great even though we didn't end up using them.
Great stay. Apartment was just like in the photos.
The pool was an unexpected delight.
Neighbourhood was wonderfully quiet at night which was surprising for such a central location.
I would definitely stay there again.
