Historical Traveler Reviews Pension Im Ziegelweg Rust
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.

... in any case so that would have been a big fail as well.
Anyways, it was a nice train ride and there was a great exhibition of photos of the Arctic called Arctic : Turning Point. Some cool photos of Greenland brought some very recent memories back. Nice views of the city as well.

... way to ride a bike & have a beer at the same time - it was a classic & the 'patrons' were sure having a great time. Don't think the cars behind were too impressed, but most saw the fun side of it. At least the 'bike-bar' tried to steer along the back streets & not the busy thoroughfare...

Two hours into our very relaxing journey a rocking and rolling left back tire decided to give up the ghost. Well Tommy had the car jacked but the rest of us couldn't find the spare tire. After a few miss trials it was located and we were on the road again. The most delicious breakfast sandwiches in Lebanon, a healthy, organic cafe of all places. ...
... 45minutes to get to the airport. They were grossly mistaken. It took ten. I arrived at the airport at 5:15am for an 8:45am flight. This was going to be a long morning. We presented ourselves at the stupid check in touch screens and immediately needed help, as did every other person at their touch screens. I don't understand how this system is more efficient. After doing the entire check in for me, the flight crew woman instructed me to ...
