Choreographer and dancer living in Montreal.
We stayed in Jana's apartment for 10 days, the place was perfect for us. It is very clean, very well furnished and decorated. Location is great as very close to the metro Fabre (pretty handy in winter as you don't have to be walk outside for that long) also very convenient to be few blocks from Jean Talon market and other groceries etc. Highly recommended!
Un grand merci à Jana, pour cet appartement confortable, très propre et fonctionnel. Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine. Et merci à Andrea de nous avoir accueillis.
A very good choice for either solo travellers or a couple travelling on a budget. The apartment is spacious and while the furnishings and decor may be slightly dated, both the kitchen and bathroom were well equiped and the whole apartment is kept very clean. The location is a strong point, being less than a minutes walk from the metro station "Fabre" and whilst located close to a number of affordable eateries, shops and cafes there was very little noise at night. For those on a modest budget, this is a good strong choice for spending time in Montreal.
Though I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Jana in person, she was very easy to deal with by email and flexible too. Her boyfriend Yves who showed me around the flat was very helpful as was her neighbour Andrea who let me keep my backpack at her own home for three hours when I needed to check out.
In summary, I'd have no trouble recommending this as a venue to stay!
We had a lovely stay at Jana's place (8 nights). We never got the chance to meet Jana since she was out of town but her friendly boyfriend, Yves, made sure everything was in place for us.
The apartment was very clean and comfy! Decorated some what vintage/thrifted, which I loved. She also had an amazing collection of books! The location was great for us, even if it's not in the middle of downtown, we got around fairly easy with the metro station a block away.
Was totally worth it! Thanks Jana!
