Great boutique hotel On St. Denis with plenty of restaurants and bars. Albert on reception very warm and welcoming. A basket of pastries and juice delivered to the room every morning. The rooms are sleek with great cabinetry, drawers that are large. Robes. Very comfortable bed and we had 3 pillows each! Windows that open and controllable air and heat. Huge flat screen TV with all the channels. Perfect water temperature in the shower. Great lighting and the most electrical outlets ever. Very comfortable and quiet. I would recommend this hotel for couples. The WiFi is fast and strong. I am definitely coming back.

I booked for Sept 2017 on Expedia by mistake one year ahead. We arrived after 20 hours travelling late one night in Sept 2016 ... how embarrassing! M Albert must have guessed and kept one (lovely) room just in case and found another for us the next night. How excellent. Can't wait to go back. Now taking great care with dates!

A little gem in St. Denis, great staff, clean and well decorated rooms, expresso machine in each room, breakfast served to your room in the morning. What more do you want ? I’ve been coming here since 2010 and it’s definitely my favourite small hotel in Montreal !

Lovely hotel in a convenient location, steps away from the metro. The Latin quarter is so lively...the hotel is surrounded by restaurants, bars, theatres and clubs. The people who work there are wonderful. I found it difficult to sleep my first night (my room faced the street), they kindly offered to move me to a quieter room for the rest of my stay. Rooms are clean and comfortable..and appear to be recently renovated.

I had a comfortable and convenient stay here. My suite on the second floor was spacious and very clean, with a comfortable bed, teriffic shower, charming breakfast basket, fridge, bottled water, and reliable wireless internet. Parking was easy in a nearby garage. Walkable to Place des Arts and a major metro station. Restaurants and cafes outside your door. Gose, my host, was very kind and helpful.

We stayed here last weekend for 3 nights. It is a small hotel, about 8 rooms I think. We absolutely loved our stay. Our room had a bedroom, bathroom with a large shower, a sitting room with couch and chair and a large balcony with tables and chairs which was a pleasant surprise. Everything about the place was wonderful. A breakfast basket of muffins, croissants, juice etc. was at our door each morning. It is located in a very busy section of the Latin quarter teeming with bars and restaurants. Not sure if the front of the hotel gets any noise but it was pure silence at night in the back half. Le Relais Lyonnais was also just a stones throw from a metro hub which connects 3 lines so it was so easy to head out to see other things in Montreal. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone. My only suggestion for improvement would be to have a contractor look at the side railings on the balcony. Though there is no need to lean against them because our balcony was so expansive they felt as if they could be secured a bit better.

This is a small botique hotel in a vibrant area of the city. It is very close to the university, and the streets at night are lively. The rooms have been remodeled and are first class if a bit smaller than a big chain hotel. The support staff is very friendly and quick to please. There are some excellent restaurants nearby including a cooking school. You are a short walk from old town and the metro is less than a block away.

Loved this boutique hotel on St. Denis. Le Relais Lyonnais is steps away from restaurants, cafes, and the Berri Metro station. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and very clean. A breakfast basket with a variety of croissants is delivered every morning and the rooms have espresso machines. Our room faced the street during a university festival week, but noise was not an issue. Enjoyed the activity! We'll be staying here again.

On our third trip to Montreal we decided to stay somewhere more local versus a chain hotel. We made the right decision. Le Relais Lyonnais is a small inn located in the heart of the club/restaurant area of Rue St. Denis. The location is very convenient to the Berri UQAM metro station (1 block away), the 747 bus stop (transport to/from airport), and within walking distance of the historic district, the Plateau and Mont Royal. We stayed in room 301; it has a separate sitting area and large private terrace on the rear of the hotel. Our friends had room 302 which also had a sitting room and a small balcony on the front of the inn. Both rooms were spacious and clean. They also had a safe, spacious mini-refrigerators stocked with water and creamer, and a coffee maker. Excellent croissants, muffins and OJ were left each morning at our door. The lack of an elevator did not phase us. All of the staff were friendly and hospitable. Many reviews mention the noise and homeless people at the front of the hotel. Indeed this is the case though is not different from any other vibrant city. At no time did we feel unsafe. I highly recommend this establishment and we will be returning next year.

If you want the charm of Paris in Canada this boutique hotel reminded me of my time in Paris, From the warm reception at the front desk to the basket every morning at our door with fresh croissants. Our room was recently renovated, well designed and really clean! The location is perfect and don't be afraid to ask for advice from the front desk, the manager is more than willing to help and he made our stay so pleasant! Enjoy Montreal!
