Great choice for English speaking travelers

While most of Montreal seems to be bilingual, nearly every hotel worker at Hôtel Espresso spoke both English and French. Additionally, it's located in a convenient spot of the city that's not hard to find. I would definitely stay here again!!

Great Experience

Even though my travel mates and I had a complicated situation upon arrival (room deposits), the overall experience was great. For the complication, we only had cash and didn't want to use debit/credit cards, so making a room deposit was a bit difficult. Only until we asked to use cash did they say that it was acceptable to give them cash for the deposit, which they could have told us from the beginning. Anyway, the hotel location was perfect. Down the street, about a block away, was the metro station. We used the metro every day, which saved us a lot of money. Restaurants are nearby, as well St. Catherine, a street filled with retail stores. I would definitely book a room here again, and this time, will be prepared for any complication!

Nice hotel, close to Metro

Excellent, overall, except they charge $1 to make a local call from your room, which seemed quite steep. It was snowing, and I wanted to order food from a nearby restaurant for delivery. I'm from the States, so I had my mobile set to airplane mode to avoid overseas roaming. If you don't need to use the in-room phone, the hotel is 10/10. If so, it is a 9/10. Still, you can't beat the value for the location and staff courtesy.

Great Hotel

The location is pretty convenient. Love the fact that it has a garage. It's at a quieter part of the city so that was a plus for us.

Great for traveler on a budget who wants CLEAN & FRIENDLY

Hotel was very conveniently located in the downtown - close walking distance to old Montreal, Crescent Street (dining), St. Catherine Street (shopping), parks, and metros. Plus quick access to and from the highway. Parking was reasonable and just downstairs. STAFF IS EXTREMELY FRIENDLY and ACCOMODATING!!! Gym was great for a quick morning workout - surprisingly great selection of free weights! Room was VERY clean, beds were VERY comfortable (slept like a rock!). TV didn't work - but we were hardly in the room. For the price, I am very glad we chose this hotel - made our trip to Montreal much more affordable! I would definitely stay here again.
