      Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Montreal Downtown-Hotel Europa

      Small but servicable

      from

      I've stayed here before, usually on the same weekend. The rooms at the Europa are small. Just barely big enough for the bed with minimal walk around room. The bathrooms are oddly laid out. Finding foot room when you are sitting on the toilet is a challenge. If you are looking for a view from your room, look elsewhere. The gargantuan AC unit juts into the room to an alarming degree. As far as conveninence sake, the Europa is well placed in the downtown about a block and a half to the Metro. Parking is an outright rip off. I paid $17.00(CAD) a night. The beds were comfortable though, especially when one stumbles in at 4am. The night spots close at 3 in Montreal!

      Small with Big Attitude

      from

      The positives, good location to Ste. Catherine & area, close to the main train station. However, the rooms remind me of Paris, that's not a good thing. They are very, very small - hope you don't have long legs in the bathroom (you'll understand later). The staff was very standoff-ish & provided very little assistance. Rooms were not ready on time. If your in Montreal to party, stay at this hotel, if not stay in old Montreal.

      Excellent location

      from

      We stayed at the Europa just a few weeks ago for 3 nights and couldnt find much wrong with it. Okay, so the rooms were a bit caustrophobic and the window was tiny but for the price that was paid, it would be wrong to expect anything more. The hotel was clean, staff friendly and breakfast was provided so we were happy! And the location is excellent, very central!

      All in all I would recommend it as long as you arent expecting sheer luxury.

      Good Place to Stay

      from

      This here hotel is a real winner. The price was fair and the hotel was nice. Its location is the thing i liked the most considering it is in downtown montreal. The rooms are ok and the staff is quite nice but they are French. The hotel has two good restaurants inside it offering very fancy chinese cuisine and a steak house which makes good steak but not like you find here in Texas. All in all a good hotel.

      Don't stay here

      from

      This is a dreadful place to stay. My boyfriend and I drove up from Boston and chose what we thought was a moderate class hotel. We were not expecting anything that superior, but even still we were disappointed by Hotel Europa. The hotel's decor is very tacky - the moment you step in the lobby you have the feeling of being in a bordello. The hotel's rooms are even more disgusting...small, dirty, and a window facing the other side of the hotel's back wall. The bathroom is so claustrophobic that you will have a problem to close the door - literally. If you bring your car be aware that parking is outdoors, across the street from the hotel. Very inconvenient. Staff is rude and unaccomadating. The only thing that redeams this hotel is its location - central downtown and directly off of Saint Catherine Street which is one of the main shopping areas.

      Fair hotel

      from

      Excellent location in the city center, providing good facilities. Some of the staff could be more polite to costumers. Inside the hotel there is a steak house with good prices and nice food.

      Never Again!

      from

      This hotel and it's staff has got to be posted as the worst of the worst. I have never been so badly treated as I was during my stay on Aug 2 - Aug 4. The hotel staff including their management need a long lesson on how to treat their customers...the people who are contributing to their paycheques...their own fellow Canadians!! Our 3 rooms were prepaid through a travel agent, and the hotel insisted that one of the rooms were not paid for and that we would have to pay again. Not to mention that we did not get our rooms until 4:30pm...and we were waiting since 3pm, which is supposed to be their check in time. I had to call my own travel agent...luckily they were open...and resolve this smack in the face myself. Not once did the hotel manager offer assistance...he did not care...according to him, he did not receive payment. Then, the staff started speaking in french thinking we did not understand....it's a bilingual country buddy....we all took french in school. SO RUDE, SO INCONVENIENT, NEVER NEVER WILL I, OR THE OTHER 5 PEOPLE WITH ME STAY AT A BEST WESTERN AGAIN.....AS FOR MONTREAL CITY...GOOD RIDDENS!!!

      Bug alert!

      from

      We stayed at the Best Western at June 17th, 2003. Roomrate $129,- for a double (ex. tax). On arrival the room was okay, although a bit tacky.

      At night though, after being in bed for about half an hour, we felt something creeping on our pillows. Some sort of flees!!! At reception they looked at us with disbelief, but luckily we had caught some of the little critters in a teabag. Although we were given another room (just as tacky) we didn't sleep a wink. We shortened our stay in Montreal because of it. Michael from the Netherlands

      Would never stay again

      from

      We just stayed here in October and they only good thing about the place is the location. The room I stayed in was DIRTY. The wallpaper was halfway ripped off and many stray hairs found in the bathroom . Various debris sticking to the walls in the sleeping area as well. The carpet was gray and stained. I was afraid to touch the bedspread. The decor was a tacky midasian decor that did not appeal to me but was not clean!

      Yikes

      from

      Great location. Prices too high. Room ok. Staff ok. Breakfast buffet a rip off. Located near other great dining establishments.

      ... museum itself is built on top of excavated ruins, so as she discussed the history of Montreal she was able to point out the evidence of that time. For example, she discussed the involvement of the Catholic church in the lives of the early settlers before showing us the excavated cemetary of the first church and what the excavation had taught historians about the city. It made the history of the city come alive and provided visual reminders of how ...

      We had a fairly lazy start to the day. Nicole went for a run as she has to maintain her training regime. She has a Olympic size triathlon in two weeks time in Los Angeles. This is part of her preparation for the full IRONMAN race in Kona in October.

      We had lunch at home today but it was as good as a restaurant. We are both starting to worry about our weight. Too much good food and wine!

      ... all day. We caught the metro to the island, lugged the stroller up flights of stairs then started walking in no particular direction...ignoring all of the people walking in the same direction. We very quickly saw the biosphere and took some photos, but I wasn't interested in going inside to the insectatorium as Alison really bagged it out. So on we walked. All over Montreal I had seen billboards and advertisements for Montreal's "beach", a man ...

      ... and 35km of flat and relaxed riding I was completely stuffed. Eleanor was fine. Maybe she should take up riding?

      We decided to walk over towards 'old Montreal’. We walked through the industrial area of the working port and there were some absolutely massive grain silos, many operational, but the biggest ones were abandoned. As we got closer to old Montreal things started changing from ‘derelict industrial’ to ‘trendy industrial.’ There was ...
