Hotel Elegant misnamed...Posted Nov 26, 2013
Pros: Clean place, courteous staff, centrally located.
Cons: Breakfast! as noted above, for a B&B the breakfast was singularly disappointing.
Location: 1 blk from Berri-UQAM Metro, 2 stops from the Place des Arts - the centre of Montreal culture. Lots of inexpensive eateries.
This is a rather small hotel - about 10 rooms/floor for 4 floors. They bill themselves as a B&B, but breakfast was disappointing; dried out croissants and mega-muffins from Costco, strawberry jam, frozen OJ, and lukewarm weak coffee... not what I expected in a city with some of the best food in the world. Some proteins (cheeses, boiled eggs?) and fruits would have been welcome. The walls were somewhat thin - noise from a group of rowdy teens at 4 am carried through the building. That said, the place was very clean, and well located - just a block away from the Berri-UQAM Metro station, the hub of Montreal's public transit system. The staff were always courteous and helpful, very welcoming. The price was certainly good for a downtown location. There's several of these B&B type places along this stretch of St-Hubert - Hotel Elegant would do well to see what their neighbours are doing well, and copy their best practices.

Very good price and location but nothing more!Posted Nov 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
No parking (9-12$). There were some parking spaces on the street next to the hotel. Very noisy, small room, old TV, not so clean towels and sheets, moisture inside the bath (disgusting). Not a good experience!

Simple, clean, quiet, centrally-locatedPosted Nov 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
Nothing fancy to be sure, but filled the need of a place to sleep. Half decent croissants for breakfast.

HotelPosted Oct 27, 2013
Cons: Buy new beddings ,towels and other staff in the rooms.
The main plus of this hotel is the close walking distance to downtown amenities, metro station and the bus terminal. Minus- old staff inside, poor breakfast (like muffin and coffee), you can't invite "gest" later that 10 p.m . The price for this hotel should be at least 15$ cheaper.

cheap and worth the money, close to everythingPosted Oct 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
room was cheap, had a few holes in walls but clean. hot water works, great staff, room was small but worked. excellent location in the heart of the Latin Quarter. on the edge of the Gay Village. Directly next to City parking garage and bus station. Underground and protected, cheaper then most garages in town $9-12 per day where most others are $20 per day. Walking distance to most everything. 10 min walk to old montreal, 15 minutes to Downtown. the Hop on hop off bus stop 5 minutes away, metro and bus right next door.

Leave your car at home/ Small RoomPosted Oct 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
I Went to Montreal for a family reuinon. Though the room was as big or small as the bathroom. I tried to change rooms with no luck as they were booked aparently. No refunds, so I was stuck. It cost $12.00 a day to park your car in the parking garage across the street. But what they did not tell me is that it also costs $12.00 every time you remove your car from the garage in the same day. Next time I think I may explore other opportunties with more value for my money. Thank-you anyway.

Not so great for families with kidsPosted Oct 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
If it was just my husband and I, we probably would have just sucked it up for the night but we were just not happy with the overall feel (and smell) of the hotel and weren't confident the creepy crawliea wouldn't come out after the lights went out....

Very basicPosted Sep 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
Nothing fancy, but good for the price. Hotel is outdated... it could really use a coat of paint, new carpets & furnishings, but it was clean and the bed was reasonably comfortable with the exception of the pillows. (One was ridiculously soft, the other rock hard and we were not able to get any replacements). Complimentary breakfast was basic... just croissants, muffins and coffee. Good enough if you are exploring Montreal & simply need a place to crash, but don't expect anything fancy or any luxury. Steps away from the bus terminal and the Berri-UQAM metro station.

Perfect for the weekend!Posted Sep 17, 2013
Pros: Cheap, clean, close to where we wanted to be!
Cons: The beds are like firm for our liking, but that's hotels.
Location: Very close to the bus station(if you don't drive), also close to the Palais de Congress(for conventions).
This is the second year in a row that we have stayed at Hotel Elegant while in Montreal. And we were just a pleased with it this year as we were last year. We were in town for the Comic Convention and were not in our room for much time, but it was exactly what we were looking for! Pleasant staff, clean room and parking right in front of the hotel! Couldn't ask for more(and at an awesome price). I would absolutely book there again!
