The Hotel Elegant is located on St. Hubert Street in Montreal's vibrant Plateau district and is popular with budget-conscious travellers looking for a hotel that is within walking distance of many of this neighbourhood's shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions.

There are 44 rooms in this property which come equipped with either 1 or 2 double or queen beds, a bathroom with shower and tub (rooms with a whirlpool tub are available upon request), cable TV, a mini-fridge, and a hair dryer. Many of the hotel rooms also come with a balcony. 

This 4-floor, non-smoking hotel features an elevator, a microwave and a TV in the lobby. Guests are provided with free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, as well as a free continental breakfast. Parking is available at an indoor lot across the street from the hotel for $12 per night. 

The hotel is directly across the street from Berri-UQAM metro station, which is the centre for 3 of Montreal’s 4 metro lines, as well as the Greyhound bus station and a stop for the 747 airport shuttle bus, which takes travellers to Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport for $10. The train station is 4 metro stops from the hotel, at Bonaventure station.

The hotel is a short walk to many of Montreal's popular neighbourhoods, restaurants, nightlife, shopping, and other attractions.

The Bad
While there were some comments that the rooms were basic but clean, there were more comments that they were old and poorly kept. Many reviewers found the beds hard and felt housekeeping was not thorough or consistent enough in their cleaning. Some reviewers commented that they could not control the temperature in their rooms, that the walls were paper thin, and that noise and the smell of smoke carried into their rooms.

As well, while there were some comments that the staff at this hotel were friendly, they were outweighed by many comments claiming the opposite — that staff were not friendly or helpful.

There were also some comments that the free breakfast was insufficient and consisted only of a croissant and juice.
