Guests should take note that not all guest rooms have an ensuite bathroom--the inn’s Budget Room offers access to a private bathroom down the hall. A couple of the deluxe suites are semi-basement suites. Also, there is no elevator access to the rooms, but stair access only.

Parking costs $16 per day in a lot behind the building.

A free made-to-order hot breakfast is served daily from 7 am to 10 am and available in the breakfast room or served to the guest room upon request. Coffee is available for guests in the kitchen from 6 am.

Confirmed with the front desk on Nov 20, 2016: all whirlpool tubs (Jacuzzis) are for 2 persons, one of the family suites comes with a kitchenette offering a stove top but no oven

The Good
Reviewers left high marks and were enthusiastic about this inn.

They liked the rooms. They were very clean and well cared for and many found them pretty and appealing with comfortable beds. Guests often positively commented on the colourful large paintings and eclectic décor. Many of the rooms had a lot of space, lots of extra seating and large bathrooms with double Jacuzzis.

They liked the location. It was an easy walk to the Bell Centre, the Metro, Crescent Street restaurants and St Catherine Street shops. Guests said they could access the train station, downtown, the underground city, universities, the Old Port and Old Montreal, all on foot.

They loved the breakfast. Guests raved over being served delicious made-to-order hot breakfasts and this was a highlight for many.

They liked the staff who they found to be welcoming, accommodating and friendly. One recent reviewer was pleased that the staff making breakfast accommodated their early departure by making them breakfast at an earlier time than usual.

Guests often found good value with rooms that were well priced for being right downtown.

Adding value to the stay were: lots of free street parking, private terrace with a swing, the colourful artwork, a good selection to choose from at breakfast and double Jacuzzis.

The Bad
Although guests were very positive overall, there were a few weaknesses that were pointed out in the reviews.

Noise was troublesome for some guests (although many found the inn quiet). The Metro is very close and as such guests could sometimes hear the commuter trains. Some also suffered noise disturbance from guests in overhead rooms walking on wood floors.

Some guests had difficulty climbing lots of stairs to their rooms.

Sometimes, guests were allocated to rooms that were not in the main building and this made it a bit of a trek to breakfast and they missed having the reception in their building. Some said the reception was not there 24 hours and this made some guests feel less secure.

Room related complaints were: no mini-fridge in a guest room, room was underground and a little damp, shower and vanity were small, shower pressure was weak, bathroom see-through, sliding door reduced privacy and private bathroom was down the hall and not within the guest room.

One recent guest said that although the buildings were charming, the area surrounding them lacked charm due to the nearby highway and construction.
