The location of the apartment is in a quiet residential area yet only about 15-20 minutes walk to Old Montreal or take the Metro which is about a 5 minute walk away. We arrived at central station a little later than expected and Alain, the owner, offered to pick us up, he was a great host the whole week we were there, very friendly and knowledgable. The apartment is in the basement but you can see the street and there is a wonderful outside patio and garden area which is off the kitchen and the hot tub of course. The furniture and fittings are all modern with a great shower and very comfortable bed, the living room and kitchen area are spacious and there is enough storage for clothes in the bedroom, the bathroom is also a good size and very clean. Everything you needed for your stay was provided. This was out first trip to Montreal and when we come again we will definitely stay here. There is a local supermarket about 10 minutes walk which has a great range of food, wine and beer so it was easy to get what we needed. We walked everywhere but could easily have used the Metro to get where we wanted to go. We really enjoyed visiting Upstairs Jazz Club not too far to go in the evening and the many restaurants on Rue Crescent but it was nice to have our own apartment instead of a hotel.
