This awesome historical apartment is ideally located in a very central and safe part of Montreal. The exposed brick and rustic decor will make you feel right at home! A travel Agent & a Graphic Designer live here. Very easy access to public transportation and very comfortable, ideal for a couple or lone traveler.
A 4 minutes bus or car ride will take you to very popular Mont-Royal street, a 10 minute ride will take you right into the heart of the Latin Quarter (St-Denis Street, Berri UQAM subway station) and a 15 minute ride will take you right to the Quartier des Spectacles (Place Des Arts) or downtown (McGill subway station). A short bus ride in the opposite direction will take you right into the heart of up and coming HoMa (Hochelaga-Maisonneuve), a grungy and artistic neighborhood which is growing in popularity & thriving with new cafés, bars and cozy gastronomic restaurants. It is also within a 10 minute walk of 2 subway stations, an 8 minute walk to Montreal’s lively Gay Village, and a 10 minute walk to Parc Lafontaine. The apartment is located in front of a dog park & soccer field and you can enjoy fireworks from the balcony during the summer. There are several convenience stores a block away and a small grocery store just around the corner. There is also a drugstore, brunch spots, a few restaurants/bars and a good spot to get bread and pastries within walking distance. There will most likely be some noise during the summer during soccer games and such but the room where you will sleep is quiet.
We will be away during your stay and this place is our home, so all essential amenities will be available to you. It is a one bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor of a centennial building. You will have access to the bedroom (double bed), the living area, and a fully equipped kitchen and washroom (no access to our home office for the time being). You will note from the photos that the washroom is separated into 2 parts – shower in one room and toilet & sink in the other – which can be oh-so useful when getting ready in the morning or to go out! We have a strict “no smoking indoors” policy, but there is a smoker-friendly balcony out back which is great to hang out on.
We will provide a few maps and basic guides during your stay.
