Amy Adejokun Section editor

A charming little place, located on a very small street, the Saint-André will take your breath away. Despite the impression that it gives of being a small hotel for young penniless people, this hotel conceals a stylish and trendy interior blending originality and comfort. A hotel which you will enjoy coming back to, and where you're likely to become a regular.

    Location 8.67 /10

    Close to the city centre, in a small and quiet street, on rue Saint-André. Allow a 10 minute walk to reach the Chinese quarter and the Vieux Port, the old harbour. Next to Berri-UQAM underground station.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    All the hotel rooms are equipped with a TV, a telephone, air-conditioning, a small fridge and for the majority of them, a queen-sized bed. As for the size and decoration of the rooms, they are all different but all charming. Whereas on the ground floor the rooms are larger, including some family ones with a maximum capacity of 6 people, on the upper floors, the rooms only cater for two people, no more! Although narrow, those rooms are better decorated and brighter. In the bathrooms, which are rather small, there is a shower or a bath tub and often some quite useful shelves and storage compartments.
    In some of the rooms, the guests can use a micro-wave, bought by an American guest who thought it essential for... cooking!
    Although not everything always work (the air-conditioning or a blown bulb), the charm and atmosphere of the place make it worth a stay.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    Be assured, the small and dark reception does not reflect what the rest of the hotel is like. This small hotel, which is a building dating from the beginning of the century, is of European style. Rising to three floors with 60 rooms it combines old style (kitsch even) and contemporary. Windy corridors with different coloured wall panes, plants, doors framed with wooden plinths, old armchairs, etc. The decoration is nice and original. The stairs leading to the upper floors are superbly decorated and are worth taking a detour to see. In any case, guests accommodated on the 3rd floor will have to take the stairs as the lift only goes to the 2nd.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Underground, (still having work done on it during our stay but in its final stage), an ultra-modern cafeteria with a large steel counter, a few tables and two illuminated pillars was due to open in May 2008. Breakfast is planned to be served here and maybe even some hot meals for lunch and dinner. For the time being, before the room is functional, the continental breakfast is included and served in the rooms from 6.00 am to 11.00 am.For a change, try the Vietnamese restaurant across the street. It does not look much from the outside but it will send you back in time to the 1960's, and the delicious dishes are very good value.

    To know

    Free Internet access in the rooms.
    20 parking spaces are available for the guests free of charge (an extraordinary rarity in the capital city of Quebec!) 20 for 60 rooms and it is not possible to reserve! So keep your fingers crossed!

      Very modern, this Novotel stands out because of its contemporary style and well-deserved 4 stars. The very comfortable rooms and the tasty albeit expensive cuisine served at the restaurant are just two of the hotels advantages in addition to its ideal location: opposite the ice-rink where the hockey matches take place! Puck lovers will be delighted!

      • Location 9.35

      This hotel has two different aspects: on one side, the basic-standard rooms, the reception and amenities, all of which is a little outdated and of simple comfort, on the other side, Deluxe bedrooms and ultra-modern suites, stylish and contemporary, worthy of a top hotel. Make your choice! And whichever it is, make the most of the ideal location, a few streets away from Vieux Montreal.

      Note for those who are broke and have nowhere to stay. If all the hotels are full and it is minus 30° C outside, choose the Econolodge, which has the advantage of being not too far from the centre on foot.

      Rather than going to a hotel, why not rent an apartment that has all the advantages of a hotel. This is what the Clarion offers, with its former studio flats converted into suites. You can cook here, the suites are large and you are not far from the city centre. These are ideal for families and those wishing to entertain guests.
