Hotel Mont-Royal

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Breakfast is NOT included even though the Ortbiz reservation site noted that breakfast would be included. Check-in time was advertised at 3:30pm, but I received at emailing saying it was 4pm. The room was not cleaned or ready to be check-in until 5:15pm. This place charged the price of a hotel but you will be getting the hostel experience. The bed was not made, instead they had sheets and the guest had to put sheets on the mattress themselves. Nobody was available to answer any questions. I only saw a staff once and that was at check-in. Nobody was there to even check guest out. I just left the key on the counter and left. My beds were bunk beds. The shared bathroom was atrocious and not cleaned. There was no sink in the bathroom, to wash your hands, you would need to go to the shower room and wash it in the shower.

The place is very empty and under-manned. It was kind of like a hostel, but without the only major uplifting factor of a hostel: people and community. There was zero staff present for all of my stay, only a number to call with instructions given over the phone. There were even times when the number was unable to be reached with a full voicemailbox. The times I did speak to someone, they were nice and courteous, but the place is clearly severely under-manned.

Not fancy, don't look for staff at your beck and call, but it's clean and secure in an interesting part of Montreal at a real bargain price. I use it for a DIY retreat, joining the religious community of men and women at the Sanctuaire du Saint-Sacrament, who chant three services every day (but Monday) in 4-part harmony, just beyond the farm market in front of the Metro station Mont-Royal. Use Cafe Noir on the ground floor as a lobby if you want to welcome visitors from Montreal. Jean Couto's mid-size branch has snacks and other needs.

Apart from the location and the price the hostel has little to offer. We didn't expect much and were still let down. There was a distinct smell in the room, and we could'nt even open the window to let fresh air in (only option was the AC, which might have been the source of the smell). The "Continental style" breakfast is self-served in the very small kitchen. There is no buffet, just toast, apples, yoghurt, peanut butter and jam in a fridge. Everybody use their buttered knife to get jam out of the jar and therefore the stuff doesn't look very appetizing.

We stayed 8 nights, there were no cleaning, no change of towels, no change of bed sheets. When ask service to the manager or owner, he got very angry. After the first night, we wanted to leave, he said to contact Orbitz where we made the reservation. We feel we were cheated and we will no longer make reservation through your company.

This "hotel" is more suited for people looking for a crash pad. It is just a small room with a mini fridge and sink. The tv was about 8 inches and you had to go upstairs for the shared shower and bathrooms. It was very quite and was in a great location next to the metro and a block away from St. Denis. The door is hard to find since the hotel is above a 24hr cafe. This hotel is the bare minimum but it was the cheapest hotel over new years holiday. I did enjoy myself but won't be going back.

Great little place to stay in Montreal. Lovely rooms with cosy duvets. Friendly staff and superb breakfast. Fantastic value. Only downside is parking (however there is a place 2 blocks away from $8 / 24hrs that the staff point out).
