With two girlfriends, we spent 5 nights at the loft to visit some 375 Montreal celebrations and 150 year Canada celebrations. The staff and service was excellent. We were kindly offered help to take our suitcases up to the top floor of the building where the lofts are (there is no elevator - 52 steps!). The concierge was very helpful booking our tickets to the Chagall exhibition and making reservations at a restaurant. An added bonus was a selection of newspapers in the lobby every morning. The loft apartment had three very comfortable beds, with lovely sheets, lots of pillows and a duvet. It was quiet, although we were 3 floors over a restaurant. The windows do not open, for a bit of fresh air. Bathroom is bright and lovely, however, some of the living room furniture needs to be renewed. For exploring, the location is amazing. A 10 minute walk to the Metro, food stores are close by to make breakfast, and lots of interesting restaurants and galleries. For a girlfriends' weekend, it was perfect. Our room number was 708.
So first we had booked rooms with Expedia, but somehow one of the rooms didn't go all the way to their end (Expedia's fault) but the staff was so accommodating and arranged rooms for us. We were supposed to have the mezzanine and my grandparents a studio. But instead they moved my grandparents to the Auberge and got us two studios (which ended up working better) the staff was so kind and helpful! Was a great central location within walking distance of a lot of restaurants and cafes! The wifi was a little slow but that's not a deal breaker. Definitely would recommend! Everything was so nice and clean! The rooms were up to date and modern with the charm Of the exposed brick. It's in a great area and is great for couples and families alike. Very spacious rooms. Thank you to the amazing staff!
Arrived early. Check in was a breeze - Fredique (sorry if it is misspelled) was extremely helpful. Everyone was great on check in and out. Our room was not ready so they upgraded us to a corner loft suite, at the corner of St Paul and St. Gabriel. Clean, comfortable bed and fully supplied (other than your food). Walking distance to everything we wanted to see or visit. The only down- When we booked for the suite, we were not aware the room was located in a different building. Although everything worked out to our advantage. It would have been nice to know that at the time of booking. We did book this hotel through Hotel.com and didn't see anything about this on the confirmation. The building we stayed in is located -literally- around the corner. No matter we would definitely stay here again.
We were in town for a family wedding and had booked online for 8 of us to stay at The Lofts. The week before our arrival, I called to ask that our rooms be located close to each other if possible. It was then I discovered that The Lofts are housed in several different buildings, none too far from each other, but definitely reached only by walking outdoors, nothing indoors. Perhaps this is less of a problem in the spring or summer but in the depths of winter with temps below freezing, snow and rain, this is less than an ideal setup. I must say the receptionist was most helpful in getting our rooms arranged so that we were all housed under one roof at 1 Rue St Paul. The pros are firstly, the location, ideally situated in the heart of the Old City. The exposed brick walls add a touch of authenticity to the age of the building. The renovations were tastefully executed with wooden floors, modern bathrooms and a practical stainless steel user-friendly kitchen. The negatives were hard to ignore. Our room was on the third floor of a walk up. We were directly on top of a very noisy bar with music blasting right up through the floorboards. Luckily, that quieted down at 10:30pm but the loud voices of Saturday night party goers kept us up till the wee hours of the morning. The lighting was inefficient, one dim light that couldn't reach many areas of the room. To adjust the thermostat and to use the room safe, we had to use the flashlight app on our iPhones. There was no full length mirror; just the mirror over the bathroom sink and a very small one inserted into a reproduction of an old nightstand. There was an area rug in the centre of the room, so old and dirty that I highly suggest it be tossed out. It is beyond redemption. Being an efficiency unit, there was no room service. I did not know this in advance ( didn't know about the lack of an elevator either). Another suggestion would be the addition of a few extra towels to hold you over for a few days. There is overnight parking available at an extra cost. There did not appear to be a sufficient number of staff; we had to wait for the one lovely gentleman to jockey our two cars and help carry the luggage up the flights of stairs. It was all accomplished in a pleasant manner, but was rather an awkward situation. Being this is off season in Montreal, I feel the price of the rooms is too high for what is offered. There are many choices in Old Montreal. The Lofts, though unique, should upgrade the basics to meet the needs of their guests.
On a cold March weekend, stayed at one of the lofts. Every single one of the staff members was extremely courteous and professional. Enjoyed the spacious accommodations to cook a couple of special meals; lofts are well equipped. Just down the stairs to all kinds of entertainment. Love the cache and look forward to returning.
Great location. Hotel lobby was a bit tricky to find. Room rate was a bit pricey considering our room didn't even have a view. The suite itself was very nice , spacious, modern style with a mix of old style, exposed brick or stone walls. Their shower with the jets was awsome! I would recommend this hotel if you are staying longer than 2 nights as it has a kitchen. We only stayed for 2 nights so it felt like we didn't need all the Amenities that are provided within the rooms, perhaps thats why it is more on the expensive end. But overall very nice place. No parking, you have to get Valet.
We had a wonderful time but have some words of caution. First, the map marks the Auberge du Vieux-Port hotel, but its loft spaces are in other buildings nearby. We had a 500 sq ft loft, which was on the 3rd floor (stairs) over the restaurant Modavie, on Rue St. Paul & Boulevard St-Laurent (a couple of streets from the hotel). If you drive, you must fend for your own street parking or pay for the Auberge to park for you (recommended). Décor at our loft was just okay. Our check-in was more stressful than necessary, as we arrived during the night when there is only one staff member - so we had to find our place by ourselves, on foot (we left the key for parking), in the snow. At that point, I was regretting not taking a room in the main building. Here's the upside: we had a big, puffy bed with crisp white linens in a corner loft with exposed-brick and large windows, and woke up to a beautiful, snowy scene outside. Instead of hotel with lobby, it felt like we were local residents for the weekend, which we liked. The view was, in fact, probably better than any of those in the main hotel which face the water - we faced neighboring brick buildings full of galleries and cafes.
We checked into the Auberge Montreal. They have 6 other buildings with town house style lofts. It was two block walk above Montreal steak pub house. Stainless steel kitchen, sitting and eating are. Two person jacuzzi tub and water fall shower. Not to mention the views of the cobblestone streets of St. Paul st. It was perfect. We found our new go to hotel in the middle of Old Montreal. Unfortunately what ruined it was screaming bar patrons walking passed you building. Honking horns. 11:30-3:30. It was like they did it on purpose to annoy the upper class neighbors that reside in those beautiful buildings.. it just ruined our trip andtho it's not the hotels fault, I wouldn't stay at this location on St Paul st.
We have had a wonderful stay this year again in the Lofts du Vieux Port over the holidays. Our loft was awesome and the staff made us feel special. A great start to the year 2017! Looking forward to our next visit this summer.
The Lofts du Vieux- Port in Montreal provided the best stay I've had in this city. i usually stay at hotels, but the Loft was so much better! you are largely left alone, but assistance is just a call away. Situated in the best part of Montreal for sight seeing and restaurants, the Lofts offer a spacious apartment with cooking facilities. I will definitely stay there again!
