What is going on with the hotel?

There must be some type Goverment subsidied housing, because day and night the lobby had Eskimo's hanging out. Also had what looked like a daycare outside the elevator on our floor as 6 small children were playing whil an older child watched. On checking you it looked like the hotel was printing out Meal voucher for one of the residents. If you don't have to spend a lot of time in any area other than your room you will be fine. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. OK for the price.

Excellent choice

I stayed for 4 nights at the hotel. It was an excellent experience. The room was very clean and quite. I also benefited from the outstanding location of the hotel. Will chose again in future visits to MTL.

Overrated! It's more like 2 stars!

Shabby, outdated appearance, old and poorly maintained. Common areas dirty. Room is clean but furniture and curtains are old and falling apart. Bed is noisy!

Definitely NOT a 4 star Hotel, MISLEADING!

What's the meaning of those four stars? The entrance stairs are worn-out granite, and dirty, Looks like a public hospital! Said my wife. Corridor carpets are terribly dirty. The ambiance is similar to that found in many roadside motels, no relationship with even three star suites in the US. The rooms are nothing special, they are clean but old, blinds are worn out and blocking material has peeled of in several places. Beds are comfortable and clean. Furniture is the kind you will find at the curbside, chairs are falling apart. Bathroom is clean and water hot, but that is all. Small refrigerator is provided. Be prepared to shell out 20 dollars for overnight parking. Espresso at the reception is good. Closest restaurants are 200 meters, nice ones at least 900. Metro supermarket is a good food option nearby.

Awesome staff!!

Our first night there, the our air conditioner had an issue but the staff fixed it quickly and we didn't have another issue at all. They were wonderful and patient with us as well as some other very rude customers. As far as I'm concerned, I would stay there again and again. Also, my friends who were staying in a different hotel attested that ours was much more comfortable, spacious and upgraded than theirs, and ours was a third of the price

Great value for your money

My family and I spent 2 nights at the hotel and the I was satisfied with the level of service that we got. My kids really enjoyed the outdoor pool. The hotel is centrally located we could walk to just about anywhere we wanted to go. The room was clean and the beds were very comfy. There was only one draw back, the internet access was unreliable, and the desktop computer that the hotel provided sounded like a jet plane (very noisy). We brought our laptop but had no internet access. Overall it was a great 2 nights. I would definitely go back again.Please please provide fast internet service and updated desktops computers
