I'm from Canada and work as an engineer.
I don't smoke and love to travel and eat :)
We stayed for a month with my girlfriend at Yoann's place and we had a splendid stay. Communication before arrival and during the stay was excellent as he was very quick to answer to our questions. For the check-in, we were greeted by his girlfriend who was very welcoming and nice while showing us the loft.
The loft is ideally located in a brand new charming building. The neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet. There's coffee place, supermarkets and restaurant within walking distance.
With a 5 minute walk, you can acces the Lionel Groulx metro station which is very central. It's a five minute ride to go downtown.
As for the loft, it was really perfect for us. The kitchen is very-well furnished with brand new equipement. The living room is very cosy as is the bedroom with a very confortable bed. The sliding door is a nice touch to separate the two. The walk-in closet is huge and the bathroom comes with a very large bathtub.
There is also an Xbox 360 which comes very handy if you want to play some games or use it as a media center.
To sum-up, we made the good choice with staying at yoann's as we felt right at home the moment we walked in !
The reservation was canceled 53 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This place is more amazing than it looks! It feels great too! :). Super clean and super nice people. This was my first time using airbnb and I will never go back to renting from impersonal hotels. Thank you so much for providing a home, not just a place to stay. This was not just a place I would rent again, but a place I would rent long-term. Thank you so much for your hospitality. It was nice to see some food, drinks, and cooking ingredients already neatly displayed upon arrival. The view and open layout with mins walking distance to metro and markets, made this place perfect for anytime of year! Merci!
Awesome Studio, modern, stylish & quiet, in a great part of town. I had a wonderful stay!
If you want to stay at this place, you better book now because as soon as the word is out, Yoann's place is going to be in high demand. The apt is brand new, high quality, contemporary design and includes all the amenities travelers might need. There is even an ironing board and iron for fashion perfectionists. But the best reason to book here is the host, Yoann, and his lovely girlfriend, Elizabeth. They do everything to make you feel comfortable, from helping with the airbnb technology to providing a clean and comfortable living space. Elizabeth patiently taught me the ABCs of their Xbox and welcomed a sleepover with my grand-daughter. The building is safe and the location is within walking distance of the Metro, bustling Atwater market, and restaurants written about in the roc. I think reviewers call it a "hipster" neighborhood but to me it felt like home. Thank you, Yoann and Elizabeth.
Yoann and his girlfriend are very kind!! The apartment is very nice and they are in between 2 metro stations - which are a 6 minute walk from the apartment. Would highly recommend!
I was in Montreal for business for 2 weeks in November. I was looking for a place to stay and given the length and nature of the stay I was adverse to staying in a gloomy hotel room for 2 weeks.
A quick search on AirBNB surfaced Yoann's apartment. Pictures looked great and location seemedmanageable. In order to help me decide I reached out to Yoann as well as some other shortlisted apartments to figure out which apartment woould provide me with the shortest travel route to my place of work. Yoann responded within minutes and everytime I had a follow up question he was always just as quick and accomodating. My decision to pick Yoann's apartment was hugely because he was very fast to respond to my queries and very clear in his information.
The apartment in real life is exactly as advertised. The picture is an exact representation of the apartment. It is located in a brand new building or a builkding that has been very recently renovated. Many of the neighbouring apartments are still vacant which means that the stay was quiet which was great for me!
Everything is in working condition and literally brand new! The washer and dryer worked great and they even left some food stuff for basic cooking, pots and pans, cutlery etc. BAsically everything required for a comfortable stay is available.
Internet - which was extermely important to me given I was working most nights too was very fast and no problems at all. Only gripe I would have is that I couldn;t figure out the heater controls (by no means the hosts issue - more mine!). Also a note that there is no cable TV in this apartment, which was fine for me given most nights I was working or on (website hidden) with my family.
There is however a flat screen TV and an XBOX 360 should you want to rent DVDs or play games or music.
The location is fantastic too, being so close to Lionel-Groulx metro station which is an interchange as well as Place St Henri. Supermarkets are available nearby and its exteremely close to Atwater market which is great if you want to cook.
Yoann was great to make some recommendations too in terms of places to eat and have coffee. There is an amazong coffee cafe arund the block and great places for breakfast too. There is also a mindblowingly good bakery at ATwater market. Had I known about it earlier I would have become a regular customer.
All in all I would stay at this place in a heartbeat. In fact I had originally just booked to stay for a week but given some extended work commitments I actually extended my stay by almost another week!
Highly recommended. Great place, good location and awesome host! Thanks guys!
Response from Yoann:
