Karl's place is in a great location, well equipped and comfortable. My husband spent well over two months in the apartment and it became our home away from home in Montreal. We got used to the few quirks in the place which can be attributed to the age of the building. Overall a nice place and a great host, thank you so much!
We had a great and stress free stay at Karl's place. He wasn't able to be there when we checked in, but he sent me a very detailed message about getting the keys, where to go, and how to get in. Once inside, there we're detailed printouts about the apt, parking and restaurants\bars in the area. The parking instructions greatly helped, as we don't know French and had no idea where we could and couldn't park. His place was simple and clean and provided just what we needed for a one night stay in Montreal. The heat was at a very comfortable level when we arrived and remained so throughout the night. The place is old, so be aware. That isn't a negative aspect necessarily, but don't expect hotel quality or the particulars of new or newly renovated bldg. AGAIN, there was nothing wrong with the place and we appreciated the charm of an old bldg. I would recommend staying here to anyone. We were able to walk to most of the areas dense with bars and restaurants within 15 minutes. In fact with a few minutes you can get to St. Catherine which literally has everything located on it.
Had a great time. Apartment was cozy for a quick winter get away. Scoring parking right outside was a plus. Karl was super awesome and flexible. Excellent location. Really enjoyed the space, would stay again.
My boyfriend and I had an absolutely lovely stay here. Karl did a great job at making us feel at home. He had great recommendations of things to do in the area. He was also very prompt with communication. The apartment was great, we had everything we needed and it felt very cozy. Neighborhood was great too, just steps away from restaurants, shopping, and the metro. We had a great stay in Montreal and we would totally recommend this place to a friend!
The apartment was wonderful, very clean and comfortable! Perfect location; a quiet side street within a few blocks of the more main areas. Karl was really helpful with finding parking nearby and coordinating getting the key. We didn't know our arrival time until the morning of but he was easy to get a hold of and figure out last minute details.
Great place and host, highly recommend it!
Karl was a great host and his home was a great base for all of our adventures in Montreal. Centrally located to St. Catherine Street and Old Montreal, it was perfect for seeing most of the city on foot while also being close to the metro station. We were happy to find many great restaurants and even a comedy club close by. :)
Karl provided a map to various eateries which was a big help when we first ventured out to find food. The parking guide that we were given was the biggest help in avoiding tickets in a city that is partially permit, free, and metered parking. Karl was very communicative during our stay and even checked in with us half way through the weekend.
I would recommend anyone to stay in his home. It was clean, comfortable, and spacious for two people with lots of Victorian charm.
The apartment was exactly how Karl described it; spacious, very bright and well located. We would love to stay here again as it is such a cozy home.
The metro is very close by so you have access to most of the city whilst being tucked away in a quiet spot. Saint Catherine Ouest is minutes away and is a great place to wander along.
Karl was great at keeping in touch and very flexible even though he seemed quite busy. He'd thought of everything from coffee to towels to make our stay a very comfortable one.
I'm born and raised in Montreal but have always loved exploring new cities and countries. I have a strong passion for the outdoors and study Environmental Sciences. Love meeting people from all sorts of different places and try and get out there as much as I can!
I try and treat every guest in my city in all the wonderful ways that I've been treated while travelling abroad. I hope that anyone who visits will come to appreciate why I choose to call this vibrant city home. Bienvenue à Montréal!
Je parle francais aussi et je vous invite de corresponder en n'importe quelle langue! :)
