Amazing location, close to everything that you may need for a short (or not that short) visit to Montreal. It's a oozy and classic Plateau apartment with wooden floors, a street-facing balcony, etc.
In overall it was a good experience, but we were expecting something more modern and organized (as we saw on the photos). We had to remove some of the owner's clothes to be able to hang our own at the entrance and there were really too many personal things around.
We have stayed at better places in the same area for the same money, so the only downside here was the relation between quality and price.
This apartment enjoys a prime location and as soon as you pass the door, you feels like home.
I highly recommend everyone to spend a few days in this apartment to discover this beautiful city of Montreal.
Mia's place is spacious and very well-located. Staying there is a true Montreal experience, especially during the summer, when you can sit on the balcony and easily walk to coffee shops, restaurants and the mountain, as well as the nearby BIXI stop. That said, the place is quite lived in, and hadn't been cleaned when I arrived. This may have been because Mia was out of town. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience and I recommend the place for someone looking for a low-key space with a great location.
Location, location, location!! Mia's Mile End apartment is perfect for travelers who want a true Montreal experience, rather than staying in one of the downtown hotels (not that there's anything wrong with that).
Mia's apt is a quick jaunt away from a number of good brunch/coffee spots, some nice pubs (Dieu du Ciel, in particular), two amazing bagel bakeries (Fairmount and St-Viateur) and some great shopping as well. Jean-Talon market (a must visit) is not too far away either. Fair warning to the picky sleepers out there in airbnb land: though I slept on the blow up mattress, my friend (who slept on the bed) did note that the coils/springs in the mattress were pretty prominent.
Other than that, we enjoyed our stay @ Mia's apt very much!
I rented Mia's apartment for my parents who were visiting from out of the country. The apartment and the host were great! The neighborhood is one of the best in Montreal in terms of combination of quiet resting, good dining, and accessibility to downtown. The apartment was in excellent condition with lots of comfy amenities. Mia is extremely nice and easy to communicate with. My folks had a great time. Thanks Mia!
Hi Mia, Thanks so much for the use of your apt. I really found the location to be perfect. i loved the neighbourhood and all the close-by amenities. The apt had a good feel and was bright and sunny with a cute balcony and plants. appealed to the gardener in me. Hope they survived after my watering! Lots of stuff to use in fridge-so saved on cost of buying basics. very good spice and tea selections. Great choice of DVDs so used a few in the evenings. Thanks for the Montreal map.Overall I was pleased with my stay at Mia"s.
Mia's place was charming and welcoming.
it was a pleasure staying at her property,as always!
I would really recommend it !
This apartment is so charming and in a fabulous area of Montreal. It is close to restaurants, shops, the metro and markets. The space is great for two people and very spacious. The bathroom is a bit small, but other than that, we loved the space.
If you're looking for a great area with a lot to do in walking distance, this is the place to be.
Très bien situé, en plein coeur du Plateau dans une rue charmante, l'appartement est parfait pour deux personnes. Seul bémol, une salle de bain petite et pas très pratique.
Le métro et les bus sont à deux minutes à pieds ainsi que deux, trois magasins d'alimentation.
Had a wonderful time in Montreal and Mia's apartment was a big part of that. It's on a quiet street, in a great part of town and very convenient to the Metro. Mia was a friendly and thoughtful host and staying at her apartment helped make this trip a real joy.
