Overview
This hotel is situated in Old Montreal (or Old Port) and is within a 6-minute walk of the Jacques Cartier port, shopping and galleries at Jacques Cartier Place and the Montreal Museum of Archaeology and History. Offering only six rooms, some with exposed brick walls and original wood mouldings, this property is well suited for guests who prefer smaller, more boutique-style, accommodations.

All rooms are smoke free and include Free Wi-Fi, a TV, an en suite bathroom and individual climate control. Select rooms also include a jetted tub and/or a sofabed. This hotel has three floors and no elevator. Wheelchair-accessible rooms are not available.

Parking is available at an off-site facility, which is about a 4-minute walk away, for an additional fee of $24 per night. Pets are not permitted.

This hotel provides guests with access to a fridge, microwave, corkscrews and wine glasses. Other on-site amenities include luggage storage and a 24-hour front desk. This hotel does not have an on-site restaurant, but select room packages include a free breakfast that is delivered to guest rooms. 

Chinatown is about 10 minutes away on foot, while the University of Quebec at Montreal and the Place des Arts are both about an 18-minute walk away. Shopping and dining on St. Catherine Street, McGill University and the Bell Centre are all within a 6-minute drive, while Olympic Stadium, the Biodome and the Botanical Gardens are all about 15 minutes away by car.

The Montreal Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) is a 20- to 25-minute drive away. (All walking and driving time estimates: Google Maps)
