Historical Traveler Reviews Le Relais Lyonnais Montreal
Home away from Home
This was one of the most pleasant hotel experiences I have ever had. Albert, one of the owners, felt like a trusted friend. He was enthusiastic when asked for recommendations and made us feel most welcome.
Our room was spotless and tastefully decorated. We had a lovely view of the adjacent restaurant patio and access to a beautiful deck. We felt like we were staying in a cozy apartment. It was quiet for sleeping and the bed was decadent. Great sheets, pillows and a fluffy duvet. Attention to detail is obvious from the chocolates by the bed to the face cloths neatly folded in the glorious shower.
I would recommend this hotel whole heartedly. In fact, if we return to Montreal we will definitely book another stay.
A superior boutique hotel right in the middle of it all, while still managing to maintain a charming, little-town ambiance. We recently stayed there for a week, and it was a wonderful experience. The rooms are spotlessly clean, with lovely, modern decor, a super-comfortable bed with elegant linen, and really plush towels, not the kind you find in cookie-cutter hotel chains. You will love the shower! Attention to detail is what makes this hotel so unique. The owners, Albert and Jose, are pleasant and friendly and go out of their way to make sure their guests are happy.
Un "hotel con encanto" superior y justo en medio de todo, mientras que todavía intentan mantener el encantador ambiente de una ciudad pequeña. Recientemente permanecíamos allí una semana y fue una experiencia maravillosa. Las habitaciones están intachablemente limpias, con una decoración encantadora, moderna, una cama súper cómoda con elegante lencería y toallas realmente esponjosas, no de la clase que encuentras en los hotel de cadena, que están cortados por la misma tijera. ¡Te encantará la ducha! La atención al detalle es lo qué hace este hotel único. Los dueños, Albert y José, son agradables y simpáticos y hacen todo lo posible para que sus huéspedes sean felices.
Pretty little hide away
tucked up in the latin quarter is this pretty little hotel that is very small and much like a newly renovated brownstone.
there were 3 of us so we got a room with a lounge off it (the emergency exit room).everything was very tastefully done aside from the fact that the lounge room was an escape exit, so the door could'nt be locked from the outside,a little strange but we also were given a very good deal.
the bathroom was the highlight,a skylight,a huge rain shower head that pummeled water down on you like a massage therapist!!
our room was in the back so it was very quiet,my only complaint was that the restaurant below had it's vent right by our windows so the smell could sometimes get to you.
the owners were pretty abstract,they would usually be down in the restaurant so you would have to hunt for them,although the nice thing was you were left alone and could come and go as you pleased.
if you're self sufficent this is the place for you!!!
Terrific value, chic and clean
The Relais Lyonnais was the best part of a weather-dampened stay in Montreal. Spotless, extremely comfortable, classy linens and towels, great shower, good size double bed, friendly. We stayed in smaller room 202, others looked larger and equally comfortable. No other on site facilities, but the associated patisserie downstairs is comfortable, popular, and served good breakfasts and - of course - patisseries. Located usefully close to Berri-Uqam metro station, intersection of two major lines, in the Quartier Latin. Be prepared for a very large number of homeless and helpless around Montreal's streets - what are you doing for these people, Quebec? Nothing? It was a scandal.
Good Little Hotel
I checked in to this hotel for one evening on the suggestion of a local business. Overall, it was a pleasant stay as the host was wonderful and the rooms absolutely immaculate. The best part of the stay was the service, the shower, and the bed in additional the the brand new decor. The location is perfect, save for one issue. If you are facing St.-Denis, it is loud and you will not be able to sleep if you are bothered by noise. I cannot image what it would be like in the summer. However, the owner is in the process of having each window triple-paned to block it out. Also, if you take the room on the third floor, don't expect WiFi to work as the signal is weak to not working at all.
Their restaurant down on the first floor is a gem. Overall, I would stay again in a heartbeat if they can fix the noise issue, which is being addressed with replacing the windows...
I thought the price was a little high, but, in line with other boutique hotels with this level of comfort in a prime location.
Un petit bijou d'hôtel
L'hôtel m'avait été recommandé par un ami et je n'ai pas été déçu!
Bien situé dans un quartier hyper animé et sympa et surtout central.
Tout est neuf et bien entretenu. La décoration raffinée mais sobre vous donne l'impression d'être comme chez soi. Très cosy.
Relié au restaurant juste en dessous "la Brioche Lyonnaise" bien pratique pour y prendre ses repas avec un choix important de cuisine française et à un prix convenable pour le quartier.
L'accueil a été parfait durant tout le séjour, pas une fausse note.
Je dois retourner à Montréal pour le grand prix de F1 et j'ai déjà réservé notre chambre.
Nous avons passé un séjour dans le coeur de Montréal, dans un des plus beaux hôtels. Les chambres sont luxurieuses, l'emplacement est idéal. Nous sommes à 5 minutes à pieds de tous les restos, cinémas et boutiques du centre ville.
De plus, l'acceuil est des plus chaleureux que nous avons eu.
À conseiller à tous ceux qui pensent séjourner à Montréal!
Ausgezeichneter Gastgeber, beste Lage und schönes Zimmer!
Mein Mann und ich wohnten im Hotel Le Relais Lyonnais in Montreal. Die Lage ist einzigartig, direkt an der St. Denis Street mitten im Universitätsviertel und nur fünf Häuserblocks vom alten Montreal, das zu Fuß zu erreichen ist. Albert, der Besitzer, war phantastisch! Er leitet auch das Restaurant unten, das ausgezeichnetes Essen (sehr französisch) hat. Das im Zimmerpreis inbegriffene Frühstück war perfekt. Das Zimmer war bestens. Wir entschieden uns für das günstigste Zimmer, das schön war, klein, aber perfekt. Neu renoviert, sehr komfortabel, sehr modern. Uns gefiel es ausgezeichnet.
Wonderful host, location and room!
My husband and I recently stayed at the Hotel Le Relais Lyonnais in Montreal. The location was great- right on St. Denis street, in the middle of the university section and only a 5 block walk to Old Montreal!
The host, Albert was wonderful. He also runs the restaurant downstairs which offers wonderful (very french) food. The breakfast (included in the hotel) was perfect.
The room was perfect, we opted for the least expensive room and it was beautiful- small, but perfect. Very newly renovated, very comfortable, very modern- we loved it.

... would head into Montreal just after chruch even though the rain had started to fall. Just as we were heading out the door, we met a couple who are currently shopping for the same type of motorhome as ours and they came out to take a look. Remember, we didn't make the bed up today so they didn't get in too far. I think they got the idea though and we exchanged emails in case they had more questions later.
We stopped and changed into sight seeing clothes ...
... of Vieux-Port, everything is heavily tagged. Makes me wonder what kind of underground elements run the city. Thinking triads with the Chinatown connection and possibly something from the Caribbean given the large Hatian presence.
Went south west into the city to meet up with the other two thirds of last springs impossible mission team. You two know who you are (keeping things quiet to protect those whom I respect and trust).
Ended up at Else's Bar. A ...

The first visible thing we noticed was that the street signs changed instantly from English to French. We crossed the bridge over the river and were on the island of Montreal. Navigating to the city was easy even though we couldn't read any of the signs but we eventually found ...

That's the 4th time I've been there now but it never gets boring. Came back and had a shower and now sitting downstairs with a coffee waiting for Mel to wake up so we can start our Poutine adventure! Well, what a day! Possibly the best so far in Canada... Done ...
