Apartment is located in downtown, but calm. Nicely and fully equipped, very clean. Richard was very nice and helpful, even took a short tour with us to show the immediate neighborhood, near-by grocery, etc. and provided great recommendations for trips to mountain area. A lot of Montreal sites are within walking distance from apartment. I would choose it again when in Montreal; only downside is somewhat noisy but bearable air conditioning device of some other rooms located in front of apartment´s terrasse.
The public "Bixi" (bicycle) location system of Montreal is fantastic and lots of fun to tour around the city.
