I'm 33 and live with my husband. We will be going away a lot for work (art installations) and would like to rent our cool downtown plateau loft while we are not here.

My coworker and I traveled to Montreal for 5 days for work. Instead of staying in a hotel we looked for an AirBNB walking distance from our office and we fell in love with the loft. While the interior is crazy beautiful and unique and I'd love to have my own home reflect the shabby chic industrial loft vibes- I wouldn't recommend this home for anyone staying for work purposes. I wish I paid closer attention to other reviews- the walls are VERY thin and you can hear everything from inside your rooms. I had a air filter that helped cancel out some noise- but my coworker who slept nearest to the door was awoken much more often by general business in the hallways. Both of us were kept up by bands playing in the basement as well as being woken up by frisky loud neighbors. I don't think we had a night where either of us slept entirely through- which is not ideal for a work schedule.
Outside of the noise the place is beautiful and huge. Shower and bathroom were just fine. My bed was incredibly comfortable. The wifi was reliable and helped us work from home in the evenings if we needed to. The location is awesome- walkable to coffee, shopping, dinner, etc. Was also crazy easy to catch a cab outside of the apartment.
Emily was very easy to get a hold of and responded quickly when we had a question about the shower (note: the hot/cold is switched just in the shower). She left detailed instructions otherwise and left everything in her home useable to guests.
If you're going to have a raucous weekend in Montreal- this place is for you. If not- make sure to bring ear plugs and don't be surprised if you're woken in the night!
For our first time in Montreal, the location was perfect. We were a 20- to 25-minute walk from most of the city's major tourist destinations and St. Laurent is home to a number of great bars, restaurants and shops. The loft is also conveniently next to an upscale liquor store and across the street from a market.
A testament to the City and the area, we had no trouble asking around for recommendations. Moreover, locals seemed to want to host and ensure a great experience. I would highly recommend staying here to small groups of friends looking for a weekend away!
The loft itself is uniquely decorated, as depicted, which mirrored the funky, young vibe of the neighborhood. We're from New York City, and were reminded of Brooklyn. The bedrooms are not huge, but certainly adequate for two in each room, and the main space is perfect for a dinner in or cocktails before a night out.
Emily was a great hostess. She answered all of our pre-arrival questions, and let us have the space to ourselves once we arrived. She also provided a number of Montreal travels books, which would have been very helpful if we spoke French!
Overall, we had a wonderful time in the loft and in Montreal! Highly recommend!
A lovely place, I enjoyed it a lot. The loft is very big and pleasant, and beautifully designed. Everything we needed in terms of food, groceries, cabs, and what not was in short walking distance from the building, including many places that are open 24/7 or late at night. Communication with Emily was quick, reliable, and helpful. Had a very good visit overall. Hope to make it back there soon.
Emily place is quite unique. Very warm and inviting when you get through the door.. Once I arrived I kinda thought of it as the reincarnation of Andy Warhol's silver loft. The build is mixed between commercial and residential and rehearsals spaces. The noise levels was not to bad. Thursday was kinda noise but still reasonable noise levels. The neighbour was friendly when I walked out of the loft. He Introducing himself.
I've been to Montreal several times but never really spent much time in the Plateau-Mont Royal area. Wish I had discover the area sooner. Lots to do and see in see in the area. If your into graffiti art its a great area to take in all the works of arts on the sides of buildings. There are plenty of restaurants in the area.. The loft is close enough to the downtown area just a short uber or transit ride away.
The next time I return to Montreal I would definitely try and stay at Emily place again if it's available..
Emily's loft was awesome. It's really central to Montreal, and the neighborhood is full of great places. Great little spot. Emily was always very quick to respond to questions. And everything was ready for our arrival. We had a great trip!
The flat itself is just as advertised. In a cool part of the city, great decorations, well-heated, communication with Emily was A+. I loved the flat. But unfortunately it is very loud, hence the four stars. You will hear the neighbors' entire conversations. From 3 pm on you will hear their bad music, including loud drum beats and nightly "band practice." This will stop around 11 pm, at which point you will hear patrons from the bar down the street going to and fro under your window, yelling at each other in the foulest language imaginable, until 5 in the morning. Weekday mornings are quiet, but that's the only time. If you are noise averse like myself I would not recommend this place; it's too much to handle. If you are more easygoing, it is a better place to be.
All the previous reviews are accurate. This is a great place to stay if you're looking for location and creative vibe! If it gets a bit loud, you can just turn on the white noise machine in the bedroom. The kitchen is well-stocked and there's no shortage of local ingredients within a few blocks. If you don't feel like cooking, there's a coffee breakfast and lunch place in the lobby. The conversation there can get pretty interesting too. If you need a dose of inspiration, this is the place to be.
This loft is fantastic for those looking to stay in a unique, functional, clean and perfectly located apartment! Emily was extremely helpful throughout the booking process and responded within the hour to any inquiries I had during my 5-night stay. The bed is very comfortable and noise was not an issue as you should understand that you are staying at one of the busiest intersections in downtown Montreal. The entire apartment was very clean, the kitchen had all the cooking equipment I needed, and it was easy to feel right at home. I was also pleasantly surprised by the fact that in the middle of a very cold Montreal winter, the entire space was well-heated! Thanks again Emily.
Pleasantly funky loft in the center of everything. Hosts weren't there, but excellent communication anyway, and we had a pleasant stay. Don't miss the tiny cafe in the building lobby, where the Iranian immigrant proprietor makes fantastic soups and sandwiches.
Emily's place is warm and magic, just as shown on the photo. A lot of space, great deco, ideal kitchen. The location is central, on "Le Plateau", near clubs, shops, restaurants, transports. Emily is fantastic, so friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this place. Thank you Emily.
Excellent guests, I couldn't be happier. :)
Not much to say about these two talented cuties! :)
Lovable, straight forward, clean thinking.
Treated the house as their own home and hope to meet them again in the future!
Keep up the good work! :)
What a friendly couple and nice people. Emily and Mike stayed in my place for their honeymoon, such a special time. Artistic view with an appriciation of old together with modernity those are the words we had in common. Hope to meet them again in the future. Always welcome to the house...
I would like to express my happiness for Emily. She was a very gently client. She is a person that you have in your heart from the first moment.
I wish always to have such clients as her.
As a host , I would highly recommend Emily and Michael to stay as quest and rate them as 5 STAR guests. Upon arrival , they were respectful, quite and very understanding with my initial wireless internet delay, 3 weeks later, upon departure they left my 2 bdrm / 2 bath loft immaculate, and are very gracious quests. Thank you for choosing to stay and hope you will come again. Maria & Dalia
Emily and her husband were very friendly and communicative guests! They're highly recommended.
Emily stayed a second time and was open and communicative about her travel plans and needs. Happy to accomodate her extended stay and she's welcome back anytime!
Emily was great. I mean, heck, she left flowers for my house!
Fantastic guest! A treat to have stay in our house. Great communication, and they she and her partner left the house in spotless condition.
