This splendid little flat in the Mile End area was the perfect place for our one-week stay in Montreal. The space was clean, cozy and comfortable. Ralph is a great host and easy to talk to and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. This flat is located in a great neighborhood with many nice cafés, shops, and restaurants nearby-- we enjoyed exploring all the neighboring blocks. I would definitely be interested in staying here again the next time I have a chance to visit Montreal.
In short, this was my favorite Airbnb experience so far, and I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
My partner commented that it was perhaps the first time where a space was even *better* than it seemed in the listing. It's calm, bright, and thoughtfully put together. We walked around discovering little details here and there and thinking about what we'd like to incorporate in *our* home.
The kitchen was unusually well-stocked with basics. There was a washer/dryer (!) in the bathroom — super helpful, since we pack pretty light. Ralph was extremely accommodating about a late check-out, which meant an even easier time enjoying Montréal on our last vacation (non-conference) day.
The neighborhood is delightful. It's an easy walk to a variety of places: métro, park (went for a terrific run there with plenty of other runners), the zillion vegan restaurants nearby (we're both vegan and ate VERY well here).
We've really enjoyed Montreal the two times we've visited, and the next time we go, this will be our first choice for a place to stay.
The place is very homy, well decorated and full of nice little attentions like a full breakfast ( cereals, bread, jam, coffee, tea, fruits) and nice bottles of fresh water waiting for you. It was so lovely staying at Ralph 's place. I saw all the very good reviews before and this is why i picked this place besides the amazing location for the price and space. This is all true. I highly recommend it.
Ralph welcomed us to the apartment, encouraged us to feel at home and shared a list of tips for the area. The apartment itself was just like the description: well-designed and clean, and stocked with everything you might need during your stay. The apartment is located in a quiet residential street, but close to all the shops, cafes and restaurants in the Mile End area, as well as the Laurier metro station.
We were utterly delighted with Ralph’s B&B. It is gorgeous- charming, comfortable, pretty, cleverly organized and well-equipped. It is a sweet little haven in a great ‘hood. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a cozy gorgeous nest. Thanks to Ralph for beautiful design sense and great sense of hospitality too, on all fronts. I really have nothing to suggest that would make it better than it is. Many thanks to Ralph, and hope to see you again upon return to fantastic Mile End.
First and foremost, we would definitely return - without question. The place was exactly as described & pictured.
Ralph was very accommodating with regards to meeting us when we arrived. Parking is not included, but the on street parking was free and, at least during our time there, it was very easy to find an open spot.
The neighborhood was lively with more amazing restaurants, cafes and bakeries than we could possibly visit in even a month (we only stayed four days) - all in walking distance. Ralph had freshly stocked some basic necessities in the fridge for us (though truthfully we mainly indulged in the local cuisine). Everything in the apartment was very clean and the shower was amazing (great water pressure and consistent temperature).
We could not have asked for more... if you are coming to Montreal, this is where you want to stay.
This was our second time staying at Ralph's great little apartment. We love how cozy it is, and how Ralph makes an effort to make us feel at home. He leaves orange juice and bread in the fridge and was there to greet us and answer any questions. We would definitely stay here for all our trips to Montreal!
Nice flat but slightly overpriced in our opinion.
There are people no one can please.
In the case of Airbnb, first-time users who cannot compare and realize exactly what they're getting.
We're lucky we had only one in more than three hundred guests. Some are not that lucky :)
Always lovely to stay in Ralph's Flat. It has everything you need and the location is terrific. Close to the Metro, grocery and restaurants. Thanks Ralph.
Ralph's apartment is beautiful. It was clean and warm and had everything we were looking for. On top of that, it's in a perfect location and Ralph was incredibly friendly and generous in helping us find parking and getting us set up. Thanks so much! If we visit Montreal again, we know exactly where to stay.
I have rented this little piece of heaven in middle Montreal last year. It was a superb experience. Ralph is a great host. If you are looking for a peaceful place in the Mile-End, don't look further!
Ralph is highly creative, very hospitable, sensitive, considerate and a well-rounded man. There are plenty of things that can be said about him, yes he is interesting, talented and a charming host, but more importantly he is fair, honest, and gentle. I've known Ralph for about twenty years now and I can firmly say, "you're in good hands," and he has impeccable taste on top of it!
Ralph is a hospitable and impeccable homeowner. His apartment on Casgrain is cosy and peaceful, yet in the heart of the most fun and culturally interesting neighbourhood in Montreal.
