Travel Blogs from Montreal
Our Morning started with our complimentary breakfast being delivery to our room: Croissants, OJ, baguettes coffee and hot cocoa were our all there for us. After our morning rituals were done, I decide to embark on a searching journey to find a branch of my bank so that I can take some money out for the day. Since the two mobile workers needed to …
The plan was to have everyone convene at Anita's house the night before so that we can get up an early start on the 6 hour trip. It did not happened. We hitted the road about an hour and a half later than planned. let's just say there are 3 girls and two guys getting ready at the same time. 'nuff said.

When I was in "Place De Armes" (like a plaza) I took off my glove to work my phone, it so cold my fingers were in pain. Then my phone shut down and said it was outta battery. ??? It had 40%??? Just too cold I guess. Anyway. After the phone died I went to Maccas for a hot chocolate. That defrosted ...
... I was in no state to go out that night, so there was no point sticking around in that hot dorm. I had also already seen as much as I really wanted to of Montreal – except for having properly experienced the nightlife, which is apparently amazing, but I will probably never know. (However my enjoyment of a small industry night in a tacky Gatineau nightclub in Ottawa, for example, implies to me that it is personal experience and people that actually make a night out enjoyable). ...

I watched some True Blood and had some pretzels and an OJ. It took less than an hour and we were landed in Montreal. We departed the plane and made our way through the airport to the baggage claim.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Saint Andre Montreal
We LOVED this hotel. We arrived into Montreal without any clue as to what it held. We searched for cheap accomodation online and came across the Hotel Saint Andre. We arrived to find a very friendly girl on desk, who quickly took down our information and showed us into our room. Ten words pretty much encapsulate out feelings at this point. "OH MY BICYCLE RIDING ---- THIS PLACE IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!". And coincidentally, those were my first ten words!
I went to Montreal last summer and wasn't aware that I arrived on the last day of the Grand Prix. Even given that fact, the price was very nice for my budget and it was my first time to this beautiful city. However, from the moment that I got there to the time I checked out 3 days later, my stay was one disaster after another.
Warm and charming....
It was our first visit to Montreal and we couldn't have chosen a better hotel. We were more than satisfied with the staff and warm charm of Le St. Andre. We arrived on 10/07/04 and were immediately welcomed during check-in. The location was absolutely perfect especially while attending the Black and Blue festival. Le St. Andre is within walking distance of most festivities and the Metro is only about 2 blocks away. We look forward to staying at Le St. Andre for many more "Black and Blue" years to come. We will anxiously await the warm and flakily croissants delivered each morning. Our sincerest "thanks" to everyone at Le St. Andre.
Nice Hotel for the Frugal Traveller
Hotel Le Saint André is a modest 3-storey hotel right in the heart of downtown (Ste. Catherine and Berri), with quick access to the central Berri-UQAM Métro Station.
This isn't a 5-star luxury hotel - the rooms are on the small side and there's no pool. But if you're looking for a quiet, inexpensive downtown hotel, you can't do much better. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Quiet, clean rooms, with colour TVs and basic cable. Also, a continental breakfast is served every morning directly to your room.
For a frugal traveller such as myself, the Saint André is a perfect fit. I highly recommend it.
This is a good little hotel located near the Latin Quarter. It is a bit of a walk to Downtown or Old Montreal (at most a mile), but there is easy access to the Metro (Berri-Uqam station, a mere three blocks away) if alternate transportation is desired. The hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The breakfast of croissants / hot chocolate or coffee appeared at the hotel door at the pre-arranged time. That being said, there are some issues. The room that we had (hopefully not the renovated ones) was quiet and clean, but small...small TV, small/short beds...with a downscale feel to it. The pictures on the walls were better. The immediate neighborhood has a sketchy feel to it. For example, at least one nightclub was nearby and going strong at 9 am on a Sunday morning. There were also some strip clubs nearby as well. Finally, the "complimentary parking" consisted of a narrow alleyway leading to a very cramped four or five spots. There is an inexpensive parking garage ($5) nearby if parking overflows the available spots, which it nearly did for us.
Good value but has some issues
We stayed here in August 2004. This hotel is good value for what you pay IF you request a newly renovated room. (Some rooms are outdated, smaller, and a bit smelly.) The photos of this hotel that you see on the Internet are of the newly-renovated rooms. Staff was accommodating and friendly. Hotel itself is a bit dated but relatively clean. Location was good - a 2 block walk to the subway and 15-minute walk to the old ports - but not the greatest area. I wouldn't recommend walking around alone late at night but never felt in any danger, either.
So convenient locationwise/reasonable
I've stayed here several times and find it so convenient to everything and so reasonably priced. They have a nice breakfast and the croissants are delicious. Friendly staff too.
Convenient and good price
I stayed at Hotel Le St-Andre in March 2004. It's 2 short blocks away from the central metro station (Berri-UQAM), which made it really easy to get around the city. The area isn't too lively at night and the hotel is located on a very small alley-like street, but not too bad at all. The room was neat and clean and I enjoyed the chocolate croissants in the morning. I paid $79 per night, which I found to be very reasonable. I wouldn't mind staying there again.
Great location, reasonable price,
I will stay here if in town again.Pros: -Free hot breakfast (coffee, hot choc, croissant) -Great location (<2 min to walk to underground/subway, few blocks from Latin Quarter) -Clean and new furnishings, but somewhat spartan -Great price (paid $60/day in Jan on priceline)Cons: -Somewhat cold in the winter -Luggage deposit area not secure (just a empty closet)
This hotel is in a great location;near the Village.The staff was friendly and helpful.My room was well equipped and clean.I thought the rates were good and I'd recommend this establishment to others.
