“Great apartment! Great location! but confusing and inconvenient parking...”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Pros:
- Very good location in the Plateau neighbourhood, close to a big beautiful park and very lively bars and restaurants. Even the old city and the peak of Mont-Royal are about an hour walk away (nice walk at that!)
- Apartment was very well furnished and everything was clean and worked well. Absolutely nothing to complain about the apartment itself.
- Freddie and Joanna gave us a great guest guide with instructions and tips for our stay in Montreal, it was very helpful.
- Montreal is beautiful and very lively. The city has a great character to it and you simply have to experience it. Made a great impression on my uncle and his family from Austria.

Con:
- Parking is confusing and inconvenient, so I would recommend not coming with a car, if possible, or finding some place nearby to leave your car during your whole stay. Detailed explanation follows...

There's parking on the main street in front of the apartment, but it's rather pricey during the day. There's cheaper/free parking on the residential streets flanking the apartment but it's very difficult to find a spot and the streets are quite tight. Additionally, all street signs are in French so it may be difficult to understand if you don't know any at all (disappointing for me as an Torontonian as all/most our street signs are bilingual...), as well, they use 24 hour clock in Montreal/Quebec, so the way some signs are worded make it ambiguous whether the sign is referring to a time period or a specific time (i.e. they will use "6h" to refer to 6:00 AM as opposed to 6 hours). Finally, there's a municipal ($12/day) parking lot on the rear of the apartment in which there's always free spaces but this brings us to the main problem. While none of these parking options are too bad to park in during the day, overnight parking is inconvenient. While the main street is free after 9 PM and the munic. lot is free after midnight, you have to wake up early to move the car from the main street at 7 AM (parking forbidden 7 - 8 AM) or pay for parking at the lot starting at 6 AM. Now I was only there for 2 days so we just sucked it up and woke up early each day to pay for our cars at the lot, but I would recommend doing some research on parking if you're bringing a car, or plan to spend a couple hours or more figuring out a decent solution.

All in all, aside from a wasted hour or two figuring out parking, we all really enjoyed our stay and Montreal in general so I will likely return to this apartment if I visit Montreal with a big group of people again.

“Comfortable, spacious and attractive apartment in interesting neighborhood.”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

There were five of us; this apartment could easily have accommodated eight or even 10 people. It was very clean and well equipped. The neighborhood was interesting and shops to provide our needs were close by. The owners provided extensive information regarding places to see, restaurants, shopping, and transportation. The two flights of stairs were rather steep, but I can think of absolutely no other negative comment. If we are ever in Montreal again, I would hope to stay there again.

“Perfect Montreal Weekend!”
Reviewed 20 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Planning a trip for a large group can be difficult, especially with seven very discerning individuals in tow. Thankfully I found Mont-Royal Lounge and was very pleased.

Freddie and Joanna took the time to answer all of my questions and were incredibly prompt in getting back to me. They understand how to take care of their guests and made the entire experience absolutely wonderful!

The apartment was fantastic, very spacious and clean. All appliances were immaculate and the setup and neighborhood were better than advertised. I cannot recommend both the property and the hosts enough! I would happily stay here again and plan on doing so.

“Perfect spot for a long weekend in Montreal with family”
Reviewed 3 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

My husband and I visited Montreal with our 3 adult children and 2 significant others over Thanksgiving weekend. This four bedroom apartment turned out to be the perfect place to stay. We were 1Km from the Mont Royal subway. There were very good restaurants and coffee shops within easy walking distance. We particularly liked the fresh produce shop that was a few doors down that also had delicious meats and cheeses. The apartment was clean and in good repair. Only minor complaint was that we had to buy dishwasher soap and paper towels because they were nearly out when we arrived.
