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!

... ships from England as ballast. The historic mountain of the city is Mount Royal. The mountain is 232 metres high. Russell spoke a lot about McGill University, of which the hospital is part of. I need to do some more research on that. Russell also said the Government has preferred to build new, so the old is in very bad repair. The city is in a bit of a mess as lots of reconstruction is now happening. I must say when we went to the airport the next day it was very obvious ...
... muggy pattern though, which is a nice relief for this evening.
Probably back into Canada tomorrow, as we approach Montreal.

Alors! Mais oui, nous sommes en retour au Canada! Funny, being back in territory with familiar money, measurement, and CBC, but all of the signs are in french, and the language spoken is almost incomprehensible even though I am familiar with Parisian french.

... where there is a charge for everything from an aisle seat to all checked baggage to food from a bag of snacks to anything larger! We arrived in Montreal pretty much on schedule at just after 5:00 p.m. (ET), went through a scan of our boarding passes at the arrival gate to clear our luggage and, then, went on the power walk of a lifetime, moving through Canadian and, later, American, customs, proceeding clear across the airport (or as it seemed) to ...
