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.

... a lovely Canadian who has lots of stories to share. Dinner is curries and noodles and salad and the place is quite busy. I feel sorry for the one waitress they have there but we're in no rush with our dinner and take the time to catch up. We farewell Jez and Lesley and stroll home.

... soon reassured me that this was all sorted, and that if by some chance I did get that West Jet flight out today for Winnipeg, just to call and let them know by 6pm that evening that I wouldn't need the Montreal accommodation. How I was still thinking straight by this stage I do not know, but it's like I knew I didn't have a choice. I was caught up in the storm, literally as well as figuratively, and I just had to keep riding it out. I went over to the West Jet check in ...
A Mindful Journey To India:Punjab & Rajasthan
November 2 - 19 2013
This is my third trip to India. In 2008 I stopped in Agra for three days and exalted in the surreal beauty of The Taj Mahal. In March of 2011 I took my first Mindful Journey with Wayne Walder and Beverly Carr to the Southern Indian states of Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
Flight arrived in New Delhi at 2:15 Monday am, beyond exhausted! After 18 hours of flying time, and ...
... Although we weren't sure which was more concerning: the 90yr old rocking it out in her wheelchair or the 2yr old kids dancing amongst the pot smoking revelers. After the festival we headed back to Gary's and Kevin's for an enormous BBQ.
On our second day in Montreal we did an easy hike up Mont Royale for some amazing views out over the city. Then we headed down towards the east and stopped in at an Australian pie shop ...
