Chateau Versailles

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Beautiful old building, well maintained, lovely staff. When our room wasn't ready on time we were upgraded to a larger one.

I will always love to stay in this hotel every time I visit montreal

Great front desk people, great breakfast and room. It is within walking distance of Parc du Mont-Royal and Ste Catherines for shopping. Great restaurants and sightseeing along the streets and so close to Metro. I only wish we would have discovered Crescent Street before our last night there as great restaurants and night spots abound long there.

(TLDR Summary--Charming hotel, friendly staff, great area, absolutely worth the price) This was an adorable hotel that is two old, historic homes adjoined. The bad, then the good: This isn't really a big deal, but there were small holes in the walls of our room where curtain holders had been moved, and maybe where some wires used to come out. They hadn't been spackled or painted over. Again, not a big thing. The only other bad thing I had is the cleaning crew. They neatened our room just fine, and everything seemed clean. However, one of the days, it was as if they left the room suddenly, without finishing it. All of our soaps had been taken and not replaced, and a very damp towel (not ours, we hadn't showered yet that morning) was left on the dresser. Gross, but it only happened once. The good: The buildings are old houses, and they have kept the feel of being a guest in a friend's house--almost like a Bed and Breakfast. Breakfast was small but tasty. It's in a lovely, bright sitting room. They serve pastries, fruit, yogurt and cereals. Coffee and juices are also provided. As a nod to the area, the buildings are decorated with a few marble sculptures, and there are original pieces of art in the bedrooms. On the walls in the halls, there are also photos of previous owners--among them, the niece of the founder of Louisiana, and the first Quebecois Senator. The hotel itself is in a very cute area full of art galleries, amazing older buildings, and only a few blocks from the Fine Arts museum. We always felt quite safe walking at night in the area. The wifi wasn't the greatest, but it served just fine for email and light internet browsing. I wouldn't try to stream on it, though. All of the staff I encountered were very friendly and helpful. Overall, except for the towel incident, I cannot recommend this hotel enough. It was lovely, cozy, affordable, and in a great location.

We often stay at the Chateau Versailles, when we want to be closer to town. The location is convenient for walking around downtown. The hotel is very European and a lovely place to stay. The breakfast is understated and a good start to the day. The price is much less than other places in Montreal.

This was a perfect location, hotel was very comfortable and staff was friendly and very helpful

The price was right, and the service was wonderful!

Great hotel. We had a problem with the heating in our first room, but we had no trouble switching to a different room. Free continental breakfast but not much selection.

When we arrived, the doorman came down the stairs and brought our bags to the lobby then to our room. Staff was friendly and spoke English and French. They were always helpful arranging for a taxis and helped with phone calls that required French. The rooms were fairly tight but clean. Wifi was good. There is no elevator so please ask them if they have arrangements. Breakfast was continental, so there was no hot food, but it was by no means inadequate or small. Location is about 5 minutes walk from the Metro, 8 from Fine Arts, approximately 10 (with a little uphill) from the 747 airport bus stop. Perfectly located, really. We thought it was quite nice as long as you go in with the right expectations.

Staff was first class. free wi-fi is available in your room during your stay. the hotel is clean though carpet in the room could use a good shampooing. the location is a short walk to the metro and a nice walk to the museum of fine arts. there is no elevator so I wouldn't recommend it if you have limited mobility. if your flight (or train, etc) leaves later in the day or evening, they will hold your bags. great service and a pleasant experience. i would go back there.

Really good location, staff and Hotel. Does not have an elevator but staff was very helpful to move our bags. Would definitely stay again.

Room not ready when we checked in so we weregiven a bigger room. Same food served for breakfast the whole week we stayed. Good location! ,No elevator ,not recommended for people with knee problem.

They don't have elevators and the carpets are old and worn out and the place could use a face lift. Having said all that the location is great, staff is jovial and the breakfasts are good.

I have stayed at many hotels in Montreal and this one was just okay. It was far from the main strip of restaurants and shopping so you need to drive. The room was comfortable but average . The carpet was distrusting and needed to be steam cleaned. There were big marks all over it and the one beside the bed was wet. The breakfast was nice and the coffee good.

Chateau Versailles is not your usual hotel, my friend whom I met who lives in the area said it used to be a private house. Small and personal, no elevators, but nice furnishings and surroundings. The desk staff is excellent, I had to unfortunately cut my stay short, and the staff, especially the nice lady who worked on Sunday morning did their best to get me a refund for two nights I had reserved. The complimentary free breakfast was excellent, eggs included along with croissants, bagels, cereal, etc. The dining room is gorgeous, large windows to gaze through, and plenty of seating, whether it be at a table or sitting on a couch. The room was a single, cozy yet functional, flat screen tv, but no hd, comfortable double bed and plenty of pillows. I even found a complimentary umbrella which came in handy. The only negative was I had to pay for local calls, didn't realize it until I got the bill, my cell phone provider didn't work in Canada. The room was very quiet, hardly any outside noise, the bathroom was clean and large, with a complimentary plush robe. The hotel is located near the main bus line, which I used frequently. In all it was probably the most unique hotel I've stayed in, cozy and personal, yet posh and somewhat luxurious.

First off, the two stars overall are specifically to give credit to the staff who were always courteous, responsive, informative, and reflected well on the running of the establishment. They earned their full-level approval in the survey. I also found available amenities adequate, while the location was well situated for access to much of Montreal. I will state the mattresses on both beds were comfortable and the linen was quite clean. For the rest... Chateau Versailles appears to be owned and operated by the same firm which operates the Le Meridien across the street from this hotel. While CV advertises itself as a boutique hotel with charm, the carpets in both rooms we occupied (we had two separate stays during this trip) were quite worn and appeared in need of replacement. The guest safe in the first room was left with the deadbolts out, rendering it unusable and was not repaired during our stay. The environmental unit in the first room also experienced issues where we turned up the thermostat to turn off the AC, but it could not be restarted the next day when the temperature had warmed. The maintenance person stated the controls in the room were not in regular operational order. Further, in both rooms, either the base boards or the the paint on the walls had chips, wear, or other damage. In the second room, the bathtub water control was loose and did not function properly. The guess of my wife and I was either Le Meridien is preparing to shut down CV or is preparing for a major renovation. However, the general state of the rooms, the lack of finish or utility of operational and decorative appointments render the terms 'boutique' and 'charm' as examples of the negative cliches these terms enjoy. I would expect the owners of the hotel to provide an explanation for what appears to be an overall deterioration of the property, given the more glowing reviews from earlier years. Given a thorough overhaul and refurbishing, this hotel could easily again be worthy of the earlier reviews.

location was great. on the Hop-on-hop-off bus tour route in a swanky part of town. staff were very helpful and non-judgmental. bed a bit small and soft for a man of my size. mini-bar was not working, although stuffed with things including soggy chocolates. food was good for breakfast. overall a very peaceful, clean and delightful experience.

One day we went up the hill to Mont Royal, then another down Sherbrook to the art museum, over by McGill campus. In that direction are some nice restaurants too. The metro stop at Guy Concordia is right there two blocks down the hill. The staff at the desk were very helpful; breakfast was plain, but we had a lot of other eating to do. It was easy to get a taxi out front. We were in for weekend wedding and it was a good place to visit in the city.

I've stayed twice at the Chateau Versailles. Excellent value and location. The pros: centrally located with easy access to the Metro, Mont Royal Park, and most districts in the city, even by foot; good breakfast included; friendly and knowledgeable staff; private, quiet, decent-sized rooms with air conditioning and private bath; clean; valet parking is extra but available. The cons: no elevator, plus lots of stairs to enter the building; this is a well-maintained boutique hotel, so the bedroom furnishings are a bit dated, and the mattress was not comfortable.

Was Good Not ascensor I like But no repeat this hotel
