This apartment was the perfect home-base for our visit to Montreal. It was nicely-furnished, quite clean, and very thoughtfully appointed. The owners provided everything needed for cooking simple meals, plenty of bath towels, and everyday necessities like tissues and dish soap. After being on the road for 10 days, we especially appreciated the washer and dryer. The bed was very comfortable, as was the sofa in the living area. The location was fine for us. You can walk to the metro station in less than 10 minutes and from there be in downtown in another 10 minutes or so. The owners even provided rechargeable metro passes for our use. You'll find a market around the corner where you can stock the pantry, and there are several restaurants nearby as well. It was quite hot two of the evenings we were there, but with the ceiling fans and open windows, we were able to stay fairly comfortable. You reach the entrance by climbing a steep staircase, which might be difficult in the winter, but no problem in nice weather. I'd highly recommend this apartment and would certainly stay again if we return to Montreal.
