About Lambert

I own this property since 1990 . It is a beautiful stone front building very typical of this area of Montreal . The house has been built around 1900 .

I just love to renovate these old houses and try to show there beauty and character . I try to keep the best of the old and mix it with some very modern design . These old houses often have to many small rooms . So we try to open the spaces and we sometimes discover some nice treasures ( brick , wood ,..) in these walls .

I hope you will enjoy the beauty of this appartement and it will make you feel good !

Why Lambert chose Montreal

The location is just great . The apartement is renovated in 2012 with nice spaces and brand new furnitures .You can visit Montreal without a car , just walking around ...Good for your health !

What makes this apartment unique

This property is magnificient and the surroundings are pretty similar . There is a sense of history . I love stone front building .

Great location & exactly what we expected!!!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, super clean apartment centrally located.

There is a secure garage on the corner of St Hubert and Ontario and the weekend rate was $9 per night.

We basically parked the car and either walked or took short taxi rides to and from dinner.

Beds were very comfortable and the apartment is exactly as shown on VRBO.

Neighbors downstairs certainly like to whoop it up and spent Saturday and Sunday nights on their patio below.

That being said, we slept soundly after closing the windows, putting on the A/C and turning on the fans provided in each room.

Highly recommend as a great home away from home!!!!!

Great apartment for a girl's weekend....

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 5 had a lovely 4-day stay in the apartment mid-May. The contemporary decor is lovely and is exactly as pictured in the photos. The location is very good...within walking distance (or easy walk to public transportation) of pretty much everything that you'll want to see. We had a car and were able to find overnight free street parking within a few blocks. As commented on by another visitor, the front steps are very steep and there are at least 10 of them so keep that in mind if you are older or impaired. The beds were comfortable and there was enough lighting in general (I would have liked a little more in the bathroom). The bathroom could be better equipped...there was only one hand towel (the numerous bath towels did the job though), the sink, while lovely to look at was difficult to use since the medicine cabinet stuck out almost as far as the sink did, making face washing and tooth brushing difficult, and the bathtub/shower is a big step up with no grab bar for shorties like us. It was great having a washer/dryer in the apartment so that we could dry the bath towels since there really weren't any racks in the bathroom to do this. We also suggest a step stool in the kitchen since the cabinets are pretty high for shorter people. Lambert was very attentive in getting us some paper towels, dish towels, and dish soap when we requested it. The appliances all worked well and the living room/kitchen area provided a nice gathering area for our group. Thanks for a great stay!

Comfortable, convenient.

  • 3 of 5

This is a good apartment for a small family or several couples. Conveniently located and comfortable. Amenities good, and easy to operate in. Metro close by, as were multiple good restaurants. Owner very attentive. Very steep stairs to access. We occasionally had cigarette smoke smell in bedroom and bathroom, I believe from downstairs occupants or those smoking in back area of apartment complex.

Beautiful comfortable apartment, great location!

  • 5 of 5

5 adults stayed in Lambert's apartment for 5 nights in July and had a great time! The apartment is quite comfortable (although you do need to leave the A/C on during the day and keep the fans running to keep the apartment cool, but if you do that, it works great!). Wonderful location! 2-3 blocks from 2 different Metro stations, one of which is a main hub so we never had to transfer trains. The stairs outside are VERY steep but fun once you get used to them. It was great to be able to have breakfast and snacks in the apartment and room to spread out and spend time together. There is a nearby grocery store inside the mall (a little odd for Americans but we quickly got used to it). Read the journal left by previous guests, there's lots of great tips about the neighborhood. We had a problem getting into the apartment because I couldn't figure out how to open the door, but when I got ahold of Lambert, he explained it! You have to hold down the push latch and pull the door toward you while turning the key to the left, then push the whole door in. I would certainly recommend it and stay again if I am ever in Montreal!

nice apartment but...

  • 2 of 5

The apartment looks good and is well-equipped but there are 2 provisos: (i) if you are visiting in Summer be aware that the front rooms have no access to fresh air or any aircon, so when we visited they were a very uncomfortable 29 degrees overnight; and (ii) be prepared for noisy neighbors. When we visited, the people downstairs were partying outside till the small hours. The combination of these ruined our visit and made it impossible for us to stay in the apartment.

Owner's Response: Thanks Trevor for your review ! I did checked with the people on the ground floor and they had a birthday party that night . As for A/C there is one in the living room that should be good for all the apartment if you leave it on during day time . I did check while you were there and it was at off during your stay . Can't cool that size of apartment in a few minutes . It is a first time complain about A/C and i will keep an eye on that . Also there are fans for your convenience if you need more ventilation . Sorry that you didn't like your stay because the apartment is great and the location also . It should have been a fun time ! KInd regards Lambert

Montreal is just a great city to travel to . You have the flavour of a European city with all the conveniences of a north American city . The apartment is located in the best spot to do all your visiting by walk ( Walk Score of 97 ) or just cycling . You are in Le Quartier Latin ...La rue St-Denis is a few hundred meters( yards ) away and is just a great place to spend time on a terrace , do some shopping or go the the theater . If you walk down the street , you will arrive in the Old Montreal . It is just a marvelous place to go to with all these old buildings ( 1600 and up ) , museum , port and bike route . Some of the best restaurants of Montreal are located in the old Montreal .

If you go north a few hundred ( yards )meters you will be in one of the nicest park of Montreal ( parc Lafontaine ) . This is le Plateau Mont-Royal , one of the nicest neighborhood in North America . It is young , lively and very charming with all the boutiques , café , small streets , terrace , theaters , arts , .....

Montreal is an international city with a french accent ....la joie de vivre is everywhere . People are very nice and polite and they love to have fun . So in the summer time we have a ton of festivals ( Jazz festival , humour festival , .....) that are internationally renowned . They are all within walking distance of the apartment .

Enjoy your vacation in Montreal !!
