Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel De Paris Montreal
Sleep on the street, it's cleaner!!The internet pictures must have been taken the day they were renovated, which was about 500 parties ago!
Dirty! And... $140. a night. No refund, no return calls. Not the place to stay in this beautiful city.The carpeting was discustingly stained and the sheets transparent. The other suite smelled horrible as we opened the door. We booked 2 "top of the line" suites, at a price tag of $326. and had to find other accomodations at 10:30 at night. BTW The hotel Nouvel, same price.....a palace!
Disgusting, filthy and totally misrepresented
We asked for the "suite" at $140 and when we arrived they showed us to a room across the street that I wouldn't have my DOG sleep in! It was filthy! Stains all over everything, cum stains in the bed, hair all in the bed...it looked like vagrants had camped out in the room for years.
Musty, fungus-filled air, rank with old smoke, dark, dingy. The mattress was paper thin. I wouldn't have let my worst enemy stay there.
SEE THE ROOM BEFORE YOU BOOK! It was so disgusting, we walked away, and when we told them it was a scam, that their net pictures were false and misrepresented, and we wanted our $$ back, they REFUSED! THIS PLACE IS A SCAM - DON'T GO!
The luxury rooms are really nice.
I found the hotel quite nice and the people friendly. Maybe someone has a nit to pick with this place. It's not bad at all. I stayed a week. There is a youth hostel in the basement of both buildings, but I didnt stay there.
Hotel vs Backpacker sections(a difference)
You know, I think a lot of people are pretty picky about what they expect for accomodation. People should point out in their emails whether they are talking about the dorm section of the hotel or the hotel style rooms.
I'm guessing every posting before this was talking about the dorm stuff. I was in the hotel section, and all previous notes from peopel above scared me ****less, as it was too late to change to booking once I'd made it. But, once there, apart from price, I really dont know what people are expecting better than what I got. A room, with a bed, it's own bathroom, and TV. The neighbours were noisy but's that because they were young Americans up for new years getting pissed for the first time as they were under 21.
Their parking space has only enough room for 1 car, so in effect it doesnt exist, but there is a reasonably amount of street parking.
So no, it's not the greatest place in the world, certainly not for the price, but I had no problems about staying there for 3 nights.
Just STAY AWAY!!
I just can repeat, what my predecessors told you:
This place is a mess! The "Hotel" itself looked ok, but the so calles "Hostel" is like another anonymous had already described, a smelly basement with a 15'x15' 14-people-dorm...we didn't stay a single minute inside.
Listen to the advice. It's a great location and not a bad place but FOR THE PRICE, a DIVE. We were put in the basement next to the service quarters. At 100 dollars a night, it was cramped, musty and junky. We were happy though to have a place after our first horrible experience (Armor Manoir Sherbrooke-awful scam!), but when I woke up in the morning nude (yes, I sleep nude) there was a young couple looking me in the eye. Our window was on absolutely rez de chaussures level and every morning for the 5 days we spent there-(we were too exhausted to find another place)- a new load of guest would pull into the unloading parking spot which is right in front of our window. After we kept the shades drawn, creating even more of an atmosphere of depression, we only got to hear the family fights and bickering couples each morning from 7-11am. Don't get room 51. On a good note, the ONE large greying man who I think owns the place is VERY polite and tres gentile. The woman who pretends to not speak English is curt and makes you feel like you are being extended the FAVOR of paying 100 dollars a night for a dive and the 3.99 breakfast is eggo waffles and folgers dirt coffee with a meglomaniac clubber waitor who sighs at having to bring you water( it takes time away from his girl watching from the stoop). Not the best but manageable with a sense of humor, cash and nowhere else to go.
The "annex" which they call a hostel is really the basement of a delapidated barber shop two blocks from the Hotel. Even the hotel help took me aside and said "This place is a scam, the worst part is that they have a website showing fake pictures." Tell All Your Friends: Hotel de Paris Is A Scam!
It's never a good sign when the air conditioner is on pieces on the floor...
This place was awful! From the outside and the lobby, you think it's charming, but once you actually see the rooms... They promised nonexistant parking, the shower would demonically switch from scalding to freezing, and when we tried to turn the air conditioner and a light on at the same time, we blew a fuse. For the rest of the time we were afraid to turn the a/c on too high (it was mostly held together by duct tape), but the problem was that it would then cycle on and off with a loud clanking shudder that shook the whole bed (the room was so small that the air conditioner actually rested on the bed.) You could only enter the bathroom if you held your breath and didn't move your arms too much - it maybe used to be a closet. There wasn't even room enough in it for a sink. You had to get on the bed from the foot, as there were only 3 inches of room along the side. There was trash under the bed, and a persistant bad smell in the room. Do NOT GO HERE! And especially do not be led on by the pics on their web site - I don't believe any of these rooms actually exist. All the ones i saw were as closet-like as ours.
Just a rip off
What a ghastly place.Dirty,Crowded,Noisy.And run by the most unhospitable people in Montreal.If they give you any worries when you try to switch hotels(and you will want to after seeing this dump)threaten to call the Herbegment board into the situation,they are terrified of having their star rating reduced.
If wanna have fun dont go there!!!
the place sucks big time.....
its crowded, badly lit and does not have enough bathrooms. it has 2 bath rooms for 30 people!

... north of the city center. We visited the incline tour which has the world's record for the tallest building at the steepest angle. This is where the 1976 Olympic flame was located. We also toured the Biodome which is located next to the incline tour and houses four ecosystems with plants and animals. ...
It snowed again - and the temperature is still bitterly cold. The Air Canada flight is a new low for passenger torture. The airline has managed to gouge out a few more inches from between the seats - have to sit sideways the whole flight.
We finally arrive ...
... Caught two buses, the second in the correct direction, up to Mount Royal. We'd wanted to walk along one of the many snowy trails, but we turned back after a few steps because it was so slippery. Caught another bus to the summit and watched the people skate and toboggan. It looked like a lot of fun, but we didn't join in. Lots of families and dogs were out enjoying the snow and fresh air.
Took the subway into town to the famous Underground City. It took us a while to get ...
... tired upon landing in Canada. On the way to the city we got stuck in a traffic jam in a city bus on the freeway at 11pm at night. By the time we got to our accommodation it was almost midnight (6am European time) so considering we'd missed a full nights sleep we were both so grateful to get inside and rest our heads. Especially because the cryptic symbol on the door to our accommodation had us waiting out the front and calling them to make sure we were at the right ...

Imagine you are sound asleep and snow starts to fall on your nose. Can you imagine the strange dreams you could have. lolol
The entire lighting system is done with led lamps, which doesn't heat up and will not melt the ice and snow. Each person has a light switch to turn off the lights when they are ready.
This year by accident while doing the blocks the trucks ...
