Centrally located with minor inconvienences
Posted Mar 22, 2016
i love the quiet location although the couple next door kept late nights. Two blocks from Peel station and 3 min walk to muse des beaux arts. Right next to Sofitel so plenty of taxis but the buses and metro are very convienent.
Hard to rate hotel staff and condition since I had to deal with different conceiges with (1) the phone being unable to get an outiside lined for 2 days ("how come you can call down then?", one offered to connect me whenever, how ever many times while the other said to go down and use their phone), (2) clogged bathtub for 2 nights (felt bad for the one who had to physically remove all the crap after the "gas" didn't work twice) and (3) no wi-fi on the last night (doubted my experience because all her devices were working... until she brought them up to my floor; it was a quick fix on the part of the owner resetting it remotely as rebooting that morning didn't work). It is an older building so things understandabily do not work as well but I didn't like how I was doubted.
They accommodated my request for a bright room by giving me one that faced the front street. It had floor to ceiling Bay windows. The room was large, comfortable and with wood floors.
Breakfasts: I don't like bread so I bought croissants from pain dore on Peel or bagels from Fairmount. There were fruits, yogurt, coffee, tea, cereal, and orange juice.
I would go back but I know my friends or family would hate me recommending this place because of the stairs.
