Historical Traveler Reviews Auberge Bonaparte Montreal
I have never stayed in a place as wonderful and beautiful as this place.
Auberge Bonaparte is a spotless, very tastefully decorated inn in the heart of Old Montreal very convenient to the Metro, Notre Dame (a must see, even if you're Jewish like we are!) and the port. The desk staff is AMAZING. Very friendly and helpful, even printing out computer generated maps to eateries and attractions. I can't say enough about the desk and housekeeping staffs. Only two things prevent a 5-star rating.
1) Very smoky lobby area, which discourages hanging around in the very nice adjacent sitting room
2) Service at breakfast was nothing less than painful. This wasn't the leisurely French pace that is expected. It was inattentive and downright rude until we made our feelings known on our last day. If you can tolerate a dark dining room, sullen waiters who serve cold coffee with grounds in it, ignore what you order and bring out anything the cook dishes out, you'll be okay. The croissants are to die for, though.
Other than these two relatively minor annoyances, I highly recommend this beautiful inn to anyone who wants a great Old Montreal experience.
Give Francois at the desk our best wishes from Tennessee.
A Pleasant Surprise
After reading other reviews and deciding to stay one night as we past through,I am pleased to say our expectations were exceded.The employees were pleasant,helpfull and courteous.We found the room to be spotless and very charming.The only surprise was the parking.I was told parking was not available at the Inn,and was directed to a private lot one block down the street.When booking the room I was lead to believe parking was available at the rear of the Inn.The parking lot attendant then proceeded to tell me that I would have to pay for 2 days parking if our vehicle was there past 6:45 A.M.When I explained to him breakfast was not served before 7:00 he was not concerned.The cost was $22.00 for 1 night,when the sign said 10.00 a day.Be Prepared.
The room was beautiful and totally comfortable - everything was just perfect. The "Bonaparte" breakfast was superb - croissants are to die for. To top it all of, what a great value during the labor day weekend - $196 CAD with tax and parking per night.
Exceptional Hotel for the Sophisticated Traveler
The Auberge Bonaparte was even better than I expected. The rooms were beautiful and complete with a large marble bathroom. I really appreciated the large gorgeous floral arrangements that greeted you at the front desk. The best part was the delicious breakfast served in the Restaurant. Freshly cut orchards were cleverly displayed on each table and illuminated by a single beam of light. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. I strongly recommend this hotel to the sophisticated traveler who appreciates the finer things in life.
Great Hotel and Restaurant
We loved this hotel! Located on quaint street in Old City near shops, metro, Notre Dame...The rooms were spacious, clean, with nice views. Jacuzzi tub. Breakfast was delicious and included in the room price. Staff was fabulous in helping with information on restaurants, tours etc. The restaurant for dinner was amazing. A great get away from the big hotels.
Great room great breakfast great location
The room was huge with a spacious bathroom and whirlpool tub. The breakfast was fabulous. We will definatley stay here again!
Great Value + Wonderful Food
We visited in Aug - Sep 2002. The room was marvelous - spacious, well furnished, view of Basilica Notre Dame. Bathroom was @ five star level! The breakfast that goes with the room is varied, tasty and filling! But best of all is the very helpful, cooperative and customer-priented staff. Would go back in a heartbeat. Location is excellent for sightseeing.
Beautiful room in the heart of the old city. A full breakfast included and a helpful staff. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
Stayed at Bonaparte for 5 nights. Medium sized room but spacious, 3 windows, nice furniture, breakfast included. Hotel staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast is in the restaurant downstairs and is worth the room price alone! Great location in the heart of Vieux Montreal. Definately recommended.

... week. Sunday it was closed due to electrical interruption. C'est dommage.
Enough for now. Sun is out and time for exercise and more food (Italian, this time). The walking is easy and fun in such a great neighbourhood as the Plateau. No, we have not plateaued but are still rising...
Another year, another wonderful night of wandering the underground, staying up late and enjoying our great city. We hit all the usual sites: First the party zone at Place des Arts, with its glowing ferris wheel, inflatable domes and dance zone down at the end of the quartiers des spectacles. New this year? A zipline extending across the length of the site, probably allowing for some great views on the crowd, but with a ...

Another stop we made was Saratoga Springs. This name reflects the presence of mineral springs in the area. It was established as a settlement in 1819 also on the west banks of the Hudson River. It is renowned for its thoroughbred horse racing. The Saratoga Race Course opened in 1863 and has a capacity of 50,000 ( not a patch on ...
... thankful for that. We made some purchases and then went in search of the Art Museum district. This was a short walk from the shopping district, but it amazes me how in such a short walk an area can really change. This area was much more run down, and really felt like the fringes of the city. We had a little look around, but I wasn't about to drag my children through an art museum, especially when I don't really appreciate art. So we went in search of the subway (a bit of ...
... Safira which was great, and exploring the part of the locality that Ian has called home now for 25 years. It was interesting seeing the development of the buildings Ian has on his property of which we have seen the photos progressively over the years. We had the use of a car but only used it locally as the other side of the road was too much of a challenge. The road is fine, its the turnings that we found confusing! We found it too difficult ...
