This unit was definitely a good find. Very clean, spacious and impeccably located. It is within walking distance to the old port and a short cab ride to the Bell centre, Our host, David, was readily available to promptly remedy any issue we might have had.
We had an amazing time at this apartment. We were all so pleasantly surprised when we walked in to the apartment. Very spacious, clean and nicely furnished.
Our host, David, was extremely hospitable and made the whole check in process simple and painless. He was extremely nice and a gracious host.
Overall we had an amazing experience here and we're looking forward to coming back to the same apartment!
The apartment was perfect for us, great location and check in was a snap. Highly recommended!
It takes a lot to make me complain, but this was the worst booking experience I've ever had. I booked this place 2 weeks before arrival, and although the agent was very nice, it became clear that there was nothing "simple" about working with Simplissimo. Whereas one or two emails usually suffice to book a place on Airbnb, the booking alone took about 7 back and forth emails, some texts, and multiple communications thereafter asking for all kinds of extra info, which could easily have been taken care of in the original note. The constant communication became disruptive, but the place looked great so I persisted.
I arrived in Montreal the night before I was to stay in this place, and received a notice that there had been a pipe leak and we could no longer stay there. I offered to arrive a day later instead, or not use the one room this had occurred in until it was fixed, etc but was told that they were cancelling the booking because you never know when the plummer will show up... They offered to provide another unit for me in St-Henri instead of downtown, which was smaller and too far from transportation in -25 winter weather (I used to live in Montreal for many years). When I declined, they offered me a huge loft downtown for 4 times the cost of this booking, saying that it was a great deal, down from 850$. Of course, I declined, and kept receiving new calls about lowered prices, which still ended up being far more than what I was initially going to spend. A better solution would have been to let me use the loft at the price of the original booking until the place was fixed, since it was clear the loft was empty anyway... Then came another dozen or so communications just to cancel the booking. One agent mentioned by phone that I would be sent a gift certificate for a future stay, which is very kind and appreciated, but I have not heard anything of it since and would likely be too worried to use it next time I'm in town.
Although efforts were made to remediate the situation, and Simplissimo does seem to care about its clients, my complaints lie in the coordination here. Very nice people, but management needs improvement. Truly looks like it would be an amazing place if you don't mind extra management on your end if all goes well, and I'm sorry to have missed out, but if anything goes awry you may be left to find another spot last minute.
It is with deep regret that we read your review, and would like to raise a few points in our defence before doing our utmost once again to redress the situation. Booking through a professional company like Simplissimmo versus dealing directly with the owner of a private home requires certain basic formalities, which would increase the amount of back and forth. However, our team experienced great difficulty in both reaching you and receiving timely and complete replies both at the booking stage and upon cancelation of your booking (we in fact sent several emails and called you twice to send you a fee reimbursement and your gift certificate!).
While we certainly appreciated your good will in offering to overlook the technical difficulties the building of your original booking was experiencing, we felt that for health safety reasons it was in your best interest to move you to a new address. When the first option of a larger unit with superior amenities proved logistically inconvenient for you, we offered you one of our finest, most centrally located properties (two rooms at the Holland Hotel Suite Loft) at an 85% discount for a mere $150 above your original booking. This was the absolute best accommodation we could afford to offer, and sincerely regret you were unable to take advantage of it. When you graciously declined, stating you had already booked another hotel, it was our intent to at the very least give you incentive to try us again – and we hope you will!
Your gift certificate still awaits and we hope to reach you soon in order to deliver it. Once again, please accept our sincerest apologies for this exceptionally unfortunate experience.
I actually ended up staying in unit 311 as unit 411 was unavailable, but it was a fantastic place to stay while in Montreal. The Simplissimmo team was very professional and friendly and had taken care of everything I could have asked for. Everything I needed for laundry, the kitchen, etc. was provided . . . I just needed to bring my suitcase. I would definitely stay with Simplissimmo again upon returning to Montreal for a month or more.
I was very pleased with my stay. I booked only a couple days ahead of time and even extended the stay one time, in both regards the simplissimo staff were very helpful. The apartment itself was fantastic, very centrally located, very well furnished and available at a much lower daily rate than other less impressive apartments in the area. All in all my family and I had a great stay, this is a definite recommend from all of us. Thanks to David for all his help.
Super loft, service rapide et courtois! Merci à Simplissimo et à David pour tout!
My son is starting at McGill University in September and we wanted a place to stay that was central, convenient, and self-contained while we searched for his university apartment. Our condo and experience with Simplissimmo surpassed all expectations. It was a beautiful, clean, and well-maintained space. The beds were very comfortable and everything required was at our fingertips. Our Simplissimmo "ambassador" was warm and welcoming and helped us feel at home. The other residents in the building were very friendly and quiet. In the early evenings, on the rooftop patio, we enjoyed the view and the pool - very relaxing! Because we wanted to have a "student experience", we used the Metro, which was only a short walk from the condo, and explored many neighbourhoods in Montreal quickly and comfortably.
I do not hesitate to recommend this condo unit or the Simplissimmo company. 5 stars.
We loved loved loved this apartment! The location was perfect, the apartment itself was spacious and beautiful, everything was clean, fresh towels, and a fully equipped kitchen.. we could not have asked for more! The only gripe was that we could not smoke inside the apartment, which I suppose is great for keeping the apartment in good shape. I will definitely stay at this place every single time I come to Montreal. The host was great and very helpful to all our needs, recommending the best places to eat and visit within the area! Thankyou Simplissimo and Airbnb
This was a lovely apartment, very handy to a supermarket, many tourist attractions and plenty of great restaurants.
It was particularly handy as it was close to the airport bus route stop and close to Central Station, as well as within sight of one of the big conference venues.
Beds were comfortable, kitchen was well stocked with euipment.
