Chateau de l'Argoat
Travel Blogs from Montreal
As I slowly surfaced from sleep my emerging realisation that day was the big day - go off around the World day - catapulted me into full consciousness. All this thinking about it and preparation, but up to now it had seemed theoretical; now it was the real thing. Everything went like clockwork; the taxi arrived early and got us to the coach station …
Having just returned from a fabulous 4 days in Montreal, I will toss my own $.02 in the ring to follow up Laura's report. I think my impressions were quite different from hers, seeing I was there with a single 30-something girlfriend and not toting a babe around. However, after reading Laura's message, I did notice that there were absolutely no …
... Oder am Besten geht ihr einfach selber hin :-)
In Montreal habe ich Gaby und Cara wiedergsehen und meinen momentanen Freundeskreis um zwei Englaender, hier korrekterweise Peter und Dan benannt, erweitert.
Mit den beiden habe ich fest in die Pedale getreten, Leckeres schnabuliert und einige neue Songs zu hoeren bekommen.
Wir haben mit den Maedels und deren Freundeskreis zuhause die Afterparty in eine spontane Jamsession verwandelt und ich hatte einer der ersten ...
... has a built-in webcam for Skype, card reader to transfer my photos, and it only cost about $200 new so if it gets damaged or stolen, who cares? Sure, netbooks can be frustratingly slow, and this one's no performance wizard. But it keeps me connected pretty much anywhere, either with WiFi or via mobile internet (more on that below). Since I like to be able to email friends and family back home, as well as blog about my ...
... traps, and went into museum-day gung-ho
at our first museum, pointe-a-callier, and once more waved our student IDs for
a smooth discount. We arrived just in time for the English tour of Samurais,
the temporary exhibit of the museum. Honestly, it was pretty cool stuff. Ask me
about the different parts of the katana, or the difference between a katana and
a wasiziki, or what Samurai life was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Chateau de l'Argoat Montreal
A wonderful place to stay
We have stayed here twice. The rooms are very nice and clean, the location is perfect, the staff most helpful and friendly, and the price is right!
The reviews are true!
With this price, the place is perfection! The staff are very friendly and the rooms are bright and cheery. A variety of tasties are available each morning as well as coffee or tea throughout the day. It is a short walk to the Metro and parking is convenient. Montreal is a fantastic city and this is the place that will make you fall in love with the city
Chateau de l'Argoat is Wonderful!
I have been staying at Chateau de l'Argoat for over 20 years. I even remember the previous owners! My friend and I, and also my kids and I, used to come to Montreal for hockey games and other recreation -- sometimes I just came by myself to get away from it all. The place is clean, comfortable, tres European, wonderful bargain, with a great location, nice staff. Cannot beat it! My favorite hotel in town. My (second) wife and I had our honeymoon here six years ago and we hope to celebrate our anniversary at the jazz festival this year!
The perfect spot
I stayed at this hotel because of the comments on your web site, and it was a perfect choice. The hotel is very conveniently located (near the metro Sherbrooke and Berri Uquam, near rue st Denis). The staff : very nice. A very good breakfast is included. For my next stay, I will return to Chateau l'Argoat.
Great Family Stay
I recently traveled to Montreal with my younger brother, younger cousin, and Grandmother. We had no idea where to pick to stay in a city the size of Montreal.
Our choice with Chateau de L'argoat was perfect. A close walk to Rue St. Denis and the subway station was across the street. Being that Montreal is so easy to get around, this location was great.
We had a huge window view onto Sherbrooke street from our double queen room. The three story building feels older, but in a comfortable friendly way. Their staff was very friendly and very hospitable for breakfast. The next time I go back to Montreal, this hotel will be my first consideration.
Clean, Close to Rue St Denis
This hotel is in an excellent position - a short walk to a large selection of cafes and restaurants on the Rue St Denis (3 blocks)and also a couple of blocks to a metro station. It is surprisingly reasonably priced for what you get. The rooms are clean and breakfast is included. It also has internet access. Staff were very helpful. Our room faced the back parking lot and we were not bothered with any traffic noise at night. The interior decorating was functional but you wouldn't spend too much time indoors when you are so close to the busy Rue St Denis.
We love Chateau L'Argoat !
Chateau L'Argoat is adorable, reasonably priced, and the service is excellent. The rooms are spotless, quaintly decorated in a very European style, roomy, with SPOTLESS modern bathrooms, some with whirlpool tubs. The staff is attentive, helpful and friendly. It is located near a great area for restaurants & bars but is on a quiter street. We love it !
What a little treasure!
I visit Montreal 2-3 times a year, and I will now stay only at Chateau De L'argoat. Conveniently located, free parking (even though it is outdoors), continental breakfast prepared to your specific order. The room was exceptionally clean, the carpet is made for barefeet. I loved the jacuzzi. The staff is friendly and efficient. I will be going back in June 2003 and my reservations are already made!
The perfect spot
Chateau De L'Argoat is very conveniently located, moderately-priced with comfortable, beautifully-decorated rooms. The staff, for the most part, was quite helpful. If you want a spot in the middle of all the action, this is not the place. If you want a place near the action, convenient to the metro, and where you can get a good night's sleep, this is.
I have been staying here off and on for about five years now. When they say European style hotel, what is meant is that the rooms don't all look alike, and they sure don't at the "Argoat". I have my favourites. Prices vary greatly between the "astronaut rooms" and larger rooms, one (35) with a very big jaccuzi. All of them sport a reasonable price for an in-town location, which is near the popular St-Denis and University districts. A metro stop is two blocks away. The rooms are not lavishly furnished, but they are home-y. Be advised of the drawbacks; the small hallways and stairs are difficult to navigate with a lot of luggage, and the 'continental breakfast' may not fill up larger appetites. On the other hand, the place does offer free parking, free local phone calls, and no 'honor bar' -- all of which are used in other locations to sneak CDN$ 40 - 50 to your bill. Rooms are clean and the clientelle seems to be upscale if not wealthy. Lastly, the management have recently added an internet monitor, for those who can't do without their e-mail twice a day.
