Lovely escape

  • 5 of 5

Rue Sicard was a very comfortable, spotlessly clean and terrific stay. Jean and Val are very friendly and provided lots of great, helpful information. Nice, quiet residential area. The apartment is well cared for and has great, comfortable furnishings and anything you might need. Viau is the closest metro stop but would also recommend using buses. There is a stop about a block and a half from the apartment on corner of Leclaire and Ontario that goes to downtown Montreal and we found it very useful. Only a few minutes longer than a train trip and gave lovely sightseeing tour along the way. Also caught a taxi once and the service arrived very fast and the driver was quite friendly. In addition to the lovely large market there are also nearby corner stores [dépanneur & Marché express] open later if you need to grab something in the evening. Overall a lovely and easy stay. Highly recommended.

Excellent, well thought out apartment in a nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice - the owners had thought of all the little details that made the stay in this place very enjoyable. Note for people with bad backs: you may find the bed to be too soft - it was for us - so we had to do some back exercises in the morning to get our backs back into shape. Parking may be tough to find if you drive into the neighborhood very late in the evening. When we drove up to Montreal, we arrived to this neighborhood around 11:30 PM and ended up parking on an empty stretch of the street near the apartment - in the morning we saw a "no parking" sign on this stretch, but did not get a ticket. According to the owner (Jean) we could park anywhere on the street, so we don't know if the "no parking" sign that we saw had to be taken seriously or not (we did not have a chance to ask Jean about it). The second day we came back to the neighborhood earlier (around 9 PM) and had no problem finding a spot where the local people park.

Lovely apartment on quiet street

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean and has everything the traveler needs. It is just over 1/2 mile from the metro. There is an amazing marche (market) very close.....also a Bixie station within a few blocks. There was a beastly heat wave in Montreal during our visit and 3 fans were provided, which helped make the apt tolerable at night.

Jean and Valerie were very kind and helpful. I recommend their apartment without hesitation.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to many attractions in Montreal was made all the more wonderful by the comfort of this apartment. Jean and Valerie are kind and thoughtful hosts. The location is perfect for visiting neighborhood attractions and the Metro is just a short walk. Downtown Montreal is only a 15-minute ride away! We spent hours touring the city and were always glad to return to such a nice apartment in order to rest and prepare for the next day's adventure. We are already looking forward to our next stay here!

Wonderful Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Montreal to celebrate a birthday and explore the city and were so pleased to find ourselves so well located to do so. Close to the Metro and a lovely marketplace. And wonderful hosts who thought of everything, the apartment was spotless and had everything we needed. I highly recommend Apartment Sicard as a place to stay.

L’appartement est situé dans un joli quartier très sympathique, tranquille et convivial où vous trouverez tout ce dont vous avez besoin. Nous sommes à 5 minutes du Marché Maisonneuve, qui offre une grande variété de produits (viande, pain, poisson, produits naturels et en vrac, fromages et produits laitiers, fruits et légumes frais) à 7 minutes du Stade Olympique, du Biodôme, du Planétarium du cinéma Starcité et du métro Viau, qui vous amène au centre-ville en 15 min. Nous sommes aussi à 15 minutes du Jardin Botanique, de l’Insectarium et des Promenades Ontario où vous trouverez entre autres, de très bons restaurants. La location de l’appartement vous offre la possibilité de vivre à la fois l’exaltation de la ville, puisque nous sommes à 15 minutes du centre-ville, la possibilité de vous évader dans la nature (les Iles de Boucherville ne sont qu’à 10 minutes de voiture) et de profiter du calme de la vie de quartier. Nous vous attendons donc dans notre joli appartement, où vous vous sentirez comme chez vous!
