... hot inside the shops, and really cold outside. I am back wearing my long johns. They are so unattractive and remind me of Lee Marvin, but they make being outside possible.
We are a little tired after yesterday's train trip, so came home early, about 5 o'clock. I bought a baguette and some smoked salmon for dinner. Terry had just set off the smoke alarm (again) cooking ...
... time to get to the airport. The trip is supposed to take 45mins in peak traffic. Mine to more like 90. The airport wS very busy but the line through security moved fast. Once past I got a coffee and some dinner to eat on the plane. We were delayed boarding cause the plane was late arriving, but the inboard tracking says we should late about 10:27 so that would still make us early. I watch the interns as my first movie. Might go watch another one now while I have a ...

Found our own lunch and after a short walk around had a guided tour of the Basilica - a magnificent church which seated 32,000 people - had another chapel behind the alter for smaller occasions.

... and the idea of a 5 1/2 flight with a screaming kid beside me was disconcerting. Luckily enough, the kid was a little angel and the most 'demanding' he got was asking me to open and close the window shade. My God... it would be great to be so easily entertained.
We got to Vancouver a few minutes early, which was a godsend for myself and the rest of the passengers who had connections. We had just enough time ...
Nowruz which marks the spring equinox has been celebrated by the Persian peoples since Achaemenid times. In Iran it is celebrated as the Persian New Year. Nowruz is also observed by people from Kurdistan, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, some tribes in Afghanistan and Central Asia. The last Tuesday night of the year is known as Chaharshanbeh Suri when people jump over bonfires chanting verses asking for strength and purity in their lives.

Historical Traveler Reviews Anne Ma Soeur Anne Montreal
Right at home at Anne Ma Soeur Anne
Our 2 bedroom apartment/suite was comfortable and exactly what we were looking for. We were travelling with another couple, so the fact that there were two washrooms, and two kitchens was amazing!!!
We loved the little terrace, and we looked forward, each morning, to the delicious croissants! The location on St. Denis was amazing and we felt right at home.
The worst part about the weekend was having to go home. We will definitely be coming back for a return visit in the future :)
Anne still rules,it seems...
...my first trip out of the USA was to Montreal,and I chose to stay at AMSA.Talk about lucking out! This is a little gem :the rooms aren't big,but you might(as I did)get a nice quiet balcony to yourself.
The nicest thing is location:AMSA is on St. Denis between Duluth and Rachel.This is the Plateau lived and loved.If you are headed to La Ville Marie,check it out!
A nice place to stay in Montreal
Great location. Small but immaculate rooms. If you get the suite (which we did) you have a nice terrace to soak up the sun before you head out for the day or get some fresh air for recovering from a late night out. This was my first visit to Montreal but I doubt it will be my last, and when I go back, I look forward to staying here again.
What an amazing location! I've been going up to Montreal every year for 10 years now and I've never stayed in such a perfect location before. The hotel itself was rather small, and our economy room was a studio, with a murphy bed (kind of cool, actually) looking right out on to St. Denis avenue. We were right next to great places to grab a morning "cafe and croissant" (although you didn't need to because they placed fresh croissants on your door first thing in the morning!) and there are lots of really cool little shops/boutiques in the area.
I just love the Plateau area as it is a place where the locals live/shop/eat and isn't really touristy, but there's a lot to see and do.
The hotel is on the second floor of an old 3 storey brownstone and there's a lot of stairs at the entrance, so this might be an issue for someone who has trouble with stairs.
I would definitely stay there again next year.
I stayed at the Anne ma Soeur Anne for just the one night in July whilst on my way to Quebec City. The room though very small was clean and thought had obviously gone into making the most of the space available, i.e. the bed disappeared into the wall when not in use. The only negatives which could be mentioned are the number and steepness of the steps leading to the hotel from the street and the poor insulation from the noise both outside and in the corridor. Other than that, a pleasant small hotel which is very reasonably priced.
Adorable, handy little place!
My husband and I LOVED this place--we try to save money when travelling, but we like clean, bright, centrally located places (without hordes of drunken students coming in slamming at 3am, and if you've stayed on the cheap in Mtl. you know what I mean!). Anne Ma Soeur Anne was just lovely, the breakfast was sweet, the kitchenette was more than adequate for us, and the staff could not have been nicer. Great location--we recommend springing for a bigger room than the economy!
Fair rates at cosy hotel with great, great location
We (2 adults and our 2 year old daughter) stayed here for 2 nights in the beginning of October,2003 and were pleasantly surprised. Even though the room was quite small when you have a toddler around is was nice and very clean (as the rest of the hotel). The service was good and the room rates absolutely fari. However, the best is the location.
The neigbourghood is fantastic with small restaurants and (mostly) classy shops all around. And with only 5 minutes to the Metro with only 2 stops to downtown, the location couldn't be more perfect. Next time we're in Montreal we'll definetely once again reserve a room (well in advance).
Mmmmm.... croissants and coffee at your door
We were in town for the Pop Montreal festival and were looking for a cheap but stylish hotel. I was lucky to find Anne Ma Soeur Anne online.
Our room was on the small side, but it was cozy with great views of the Saint Denis scene. All of the venues were within walking distance. Best of all, every morning we found a red bag hanging on our door with croissants! Only negative was that our room was over a cigar lounge -- Friday and Saturday nights were smelly and loud. But nothing an open window couldn't fix. All in all, this is a great hotel for budget travelers that want to be in the Plateau.
Character & Charm!
Our stay in Montreal was made complete by our stay at this hotel! The character and charm made us feel apart of the city. It is the perfect location for a true Montreal Experience, with restaurants, bars, unique shops, boutiques, SAQ and subway station steps away from the door! The staff was very helpful, the room was clean, and having croissants delivered to the door each morning was a pleasant bonus (although there are many breakfast/brunch places closeby)! We will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Montreal!
Location location location
Terrific location right in the middle of all the action--restaurants and shopping literally at your feet, but our room facing the courtyard in back was very quiet. The kitchenette is terribly cute (though who cooks on vacation in Montreal??) and the fridge very helpful for foodies stashing finds or those wishing to save a few bucks on drinks.
Clean, comfortable, and close to everything-- we definitely recommend!
