    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel De Paris Montreal

    Dirty!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    from

    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)

    from

    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!!

    from

    Hi folks!

    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.

    Stay away!

    Bad

    from

    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.

    Scam, scam!!

    from

    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...

    from

    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

    from

    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!!!

    from

    the place sucks big time.....

    its crowded, badly lit and does not have enough bathrooms. it has 2 bath rooms for 30 people!

    ... we enjoyed a beer that we'd smuggled into the park, and I even caught a glimpse of a racoon, at which point I was cursing that I had chosen to leave my proper camera in my room.

    Afterwards, we headed for a place to have a few drinks. One American who we was with, who embraced the Montreal culture to levels I had not known was possible, had been banging on all evening about a bar that had traditional Quebec music each night. The rest of the group wanted to go to a ...

    ... get to know each other when you are stuck in a car for 8 hours and when your car breaks down in a snowstorm). Montreal is a wonderful city and very different from the ones I have seen so far. It seems to be more European, with less skyscrapers and billboards than New York and Boston and more cosy bars that reminded me of Quartier Latin. We explored nightlife as well as day life and even though it was a short visit, we experienced quite a few adventures and made great memories! ...

    house to warm up.

    In the afternoon
    decide on a longer excursion to the Metro supermarket. Getting a bit cold, and quite weary by the
    time we get back home. Murray finds he’s lost one of the lenses from his
    glasses, so after picking Ollie up from kindergarten in the car, we drive down
    to where he took his glasses off, and he eventually finds it hidden in the
    snow. ...

    ... depending on how heavy the snow fall. First the highways, bus stops, bridges, tunnels, then main streets especially downtown, then important streets, then residential areas, followed by bike paths ( yes there are people who cycle in winter!!
    The side walks are sanded or graveled to ensure its safe to walk. Never put salt on cement it will eat away at it. The streets are salted or gravel led so cars can drive.
    We do this over and over again.

    ... that were like praying mantises. In the middle was a life sized Chinese garden with all the buildings and rocks included – made us want to go back to Asia. At the far end of the park was a bonsai exhibition with some of them being hundreds of years old – fascinating. Then we weaved our way through all kinds of forests and roses til we reached the exit. I had planned on just a few hours but we stayed for four hours. It was now time for lunch – but instead of a sit ...
