Just remember when you see pics - that Montreal is in Quebec, Canada and is a 3/4 French city so a lot of signs and business names will be in French...Second largest french speaking populace in the world behind Paris, France.

The pink balls should have given it away,but it took a few guys holding hands in hot pants and a guy on a stall dressed as a flower shouting out in his high pitched voice to realise I had strolled into the gay village! Remembering my survival instincts I secured dinner then left swiftly avoiding all obstacles and men in hot pants ...

So where does 15 months of traveling fit into the big picture? Foremost, it was an incredible personal adventure that allowed me to live experiences and meet people that have made me more open and understanding as to what life can be. I think above all I've learned that as long as you're happy and healthy the rest of your life will take care of itself. ...
I took us about an hour to tour the Biodome and afterwards we used the toilets and had a look in the kids area downstairs where they had stuffed animals and science learning centres. I text Guddis and asked if she wanted to meet us for coffee or something to eat. We decided on St Denis, so made our way to the metro leaving around 2.
We arrived about 10 mintues before Guddis and went for a little walk along Rue ...

Historical Traveler Reviews LHotel Montreal
We stayed at the Hotel Xixe Siecle for five nights in mid-July and absolutely loved everything about it. We had a bad flight there (five hours late, lost luggage, etc)., but once we walked through the door of the hotel, all our cares vanished! The wonderful staff sent us to a perfect place for a late supper (Boris Bistro) and made sure we had everything we needed until our luggage arrived. The breakfast was wonderful, the library bar was very unique, and there were assorted scuptures scattered throughout the lobby (the hotel was converted from an old bank building). Also the staff made all our dinner reservations for us, which was very helpful. The location can't be beat, you are within walking distance of all the historical parts of town, and a metro stop is just a block away. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone!
Stayed 3 nights at the Hotel XIX siecle earlier this summer. I am a CFO of a Fortune 500 company and thus travel extensively. I have NEVER been treated this well in any other hotel nor have I taken the time to write a review. The hotel, breakfast, comfort and overall warmth and professionalism of its staff is a cut above the rest. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place away from home.
Great hotel, quiet location
We visited Hotel XiXe Siecle in July of 2004. It is a lovely 19th century building (as the name promises) and we were upgraded to a large suite at no extra charge. The staff was helpful and friendly and everyone was comfortable in English or French. The hotel is located in Old Montreal, a short walk from the river and the touristy area of Old Montreal, or a slightly longer walk to the modern city. This is important, since the area around the hotel is rather quiet; one has a difficult time finding even a single restaurant open in the immediate vicinity, especially on weekends. We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel, but the lobby bar was a hit or miss operation; sometimes it was staffed, sometimes it wasn't, and it was hard to predict. Otherwise, this is a great place.
I chose to stay at this hotel based on the reviews found on this website. I was really impressed with the hotel and our entire visit. We originally planned only to stay for 3 nights out of our 8 night holiday but added on another 2 nights at the end just because we really were comfortable and well looked after.
We stayed at the Hotel XIX Siecle for 5 nights in July '04 for our wedding. We had 18 guests also staying at the hotel. We travel fairly extensively, and have NEVER been made to feel more at home.
We stayed at the Hotel XIXe Siecle last year and I have been meaning to write this review ever since. We really enjoyed our stay here. Our particular room did not have a good view, but we asked for a quiet room, and quiet is what we got. We were never disturbed by any unwanted noise. One of the staff members did show us a room with a very nice view out towards Notre-Dame. The breakfast buffet was great. I bought a jar of their homemade carrot preserves just before leaving, and would go back there just to get another! The location is very convenient to Old Montreal and the metro. One note: the hotel's entrance is on a street that is frequently used for filming, in fact, a commercial was being filmed on our 2nd day there. Although we had no problem, I was told that some of the hotel guests were not allowed to enter the hotel for quite a while. This hotel has a nice bar. It does not have a restaurant open for lunch and dinner, but there are plenty of choices nearby. The hotel staff was very pleasant. We will definitely stay at the XIXeme Siecle if we visit Montreal again.
Good value but something missing..
As a regular traveller to Montreal I thought I would give this hotel a try for an overnight business stay in December 2003. I was attracted to the hotel by the reasonable rates they were offering compared to other boutique hotels in the area. The hotel is small and intimate with friendly staff. The rooms are large but rather bland as are the other parts of the hotel. If only the owner had spent a little more money.Good value but that special ingredient that makes you want to come back is missing.
Have stayed here for business and pleasure. Best location-in the middle of everything you'd want to see. One block from Notre Dame Basilica.
Walk (safely) to restaurants, cafes, museums, shopping, port, metro.
Hotel rooms are comfortable and feel like a guest room in someone's home, not cramped and stale like you find in many renovated independent hotels. Breakfast buffet consists of cheeses, meats, pastries, yogurt, granola, fruit, bagels, muffins or there is a great place for breakfast/ brunch across the street. Staff is tremendously accommodating. Impressed they switched from speaking French to English to each other whenever a known US guest is nearby, very considerate. If first visit, check tours at autocarimperial.com or coachcanada.com
I'd recommend Hotel XIXe Siecle
An absolutely wonderful stay. Extras included a bathrobe and bathsheets. Beautiful lobby and bar with a small library should you tire of touring the history just outside. The hotel is located within the boundaries of the old city. Breakfast is included in the morning room and consists of a buffet, well stocked with delicious choices. The staff spoke to us easily in English without hesitation. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who asked for a really nice hotel at a fairly reasonable cost.
