My wife and I were very happy with Sarah's accommodations. We arrived late, and Sarah's boyfriend Sam was waiting for us to let us in. As some other posters have noted, we didn't stay in the unit displayed in the photos. The apartment had the exact same layout, however, and was warm, the bed was comfortable, bathroom was nice and clean. Location was fantastic, with a five minute walk to the metro we just got a 3 day pass and used it repeatedly. Kitchen was well stocked, though we ate out most days. Only drawback was the living room got a little dark at night (could use an additional lamp or two).
Great place. Excellent location. Marco met us with the keys when we arrived and gave us the lay of the land. After that it was like having our own place in Old Montreal for a couple days.
You certainly can't beat the location of this condo, in the heart of Old Montreal, and easy access to the metro system (Square Victoria station is a 5 minutes walk away). The apartment is indeed a spacious 1 bedroom, however I am echoing a few past reviews on this listing: I did not stay in the condo that is presented on the listing. They both certainly are in the same building, based on layout, but I think the listing should be updated appropriately, or at least it should be mentioned during the correspondence with the owner. The bed was comfortable, the 2 couches were not. The apartment has a great wifi connection. I had to contact Marco for the details though, as the info given in the booking email were different . It was also very quiet. Clean fluffy towels were available, with Q-tips, cotton pad and multiple bath products. The kitchen could use some love, as cupboards were a bit disorganized and not as clean as the rest of the apartment. I miss having a sponge for example, to wash the few dishes I had.
I mostly communicated with Marco, as Sarah was working late the night I arrived. It was an easy process and he was very responsive.
In conclusion, this apartment is in a fantastic location and I definitely would consider staying there again for my next trip to Montreal.
Everything was as described... Marco let us in and was very friendly. Easy parking on the street. Clean towels were waiting for us on the bed.
This condo was everything we had hoped for: great location, clean & comfortable. The bed was really really comfortable and kitchen had everything we could need.
We did have trouble communicating with Sarah as she is reluctant to release check-in details until the day prior to arrival. I completely understand this, but it would have been appreciated if she would have responded to my numerous prior emails asking for advice on parking and what to do in the area..to me, this is an important part of being a good AirBNB host. As mentioned by other reviewers, we didn't meet Sarah, but her friend Marco was very accommodating and helped us find parking and check-in.
Great location! The bed was so comfortably.
We stayed at this condo for 3 nights in November. I have zero complaints, Marco met us with the keys when we checked in, the apartment is nicely decorated, spacious and comfortable. We slept very well and the location was perfect. We walked all over the city and could easily pop back to the condo to drop off our shopping. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Would highly recommend this spot for anyone wanting to stay in Montreal.
Nice location at a reasonable price and beautiful apartment.
We stayed at Sarah's apartment this past weekend (October 24 2014) for four nights. When we arrived we were met outside of the building by a friend of Sarah's named Marco (and despite being about an hour late, he patiently waited and provided last minute directions via text which was greatly appreciated and helpful). He allowed us to use his parking spot in the underground parking because of the inclement weather but we were expecting to park close by as there were many lots. He was really accommodating.
We got up to the apartment which was quite nice. Open concept kitchen and living room - and judging by the pictures this was not the same apartment advertised in the posting but it was equally as nice. Couches were terrible and uncomfortable to sit on. I can't imagine if you were a paying guest using the pull out couch - you would need a chiropractor after a few nights. Also it was small so I would suggest this apartment for only two guests. The bed was super comfy and made it hard to get up in the morning. There were large windows which added a lot of sunshine to both the bedroom and living room/kitchen. The bathroom was also nice and clean - with body wash available, cotton and q-tips and nice scented candles. Overall the location was fabulous - I cannot say more because the building is located in the heart of downtown with a brief walk to convenience stores, load of delicious restaurants (Le cartet, vallier, olive and gourmando to name a few). Also a short walk to rue at Catherine , IGA, horse carriage rides, walk to the port. The whole area is beautiful and so close.
My negative opinion of the apartment was that the details were definitely missing. Crumbs in the cupboards and cabinets, dirty dishes and pans, no dish washing liquid for their dishwasher or laundry detergent. So we felt we had to wash all of the dishes before use. Coffee machine was there but also not clean. Shelves were a bit cluttered and not presented well. But there was plenty of hand soap, clean towels and linens, toilet rolls, paper towels... The most important things.
The building was also quiet, however construction is occurring at the building across the street so it can be noisy in the early morning wth trucks and drills. Also the weekend will have noisy people at the bars close by but closing the window rids most of the noise. Overall I would probably pay a little more next time so that the details are taken care of like in a hotel, but I would definitely stay here again on account of the wonderful location.
The apartment was fantastic, Sarah as a great host. Small touches like leaving travel plug converters for guests and coffee for us to use really made a difference. The only question I have is that even though it was great, the apartment didn't look like the one in the pictures. not sure if they are for another flat.
