Hotel Name: Le Chasseur Bed & Breakfast
Address: 1567 Rue Saint Andre, Montreal, Canada.
I stayed at Le Chasseur Bed & Breakfast in Montreal, Canada. The rate was 49 CAD per night ($37 USD), though the booking sites don’t include the 14.97 % tax and 3.50 % city tax. I wish the booking sites (or government) would make it mandatory to include the total price.
I had no knowledge of Montreal before this trip and wasn’t exactly sure where to stay. Looking on the map it seemed that Montreal has a big downtown/CBD, so in the end I booked this for it’s location near a metro station. In the end I didn’t end up using the metro, but it turned out to be a good location as it is a short walk from the airport bus terminus in the city (Station Berri-UQAM). Le Chasseur is on a quiet street in the city centre. Here is a more detailed guide on where to stay in Montreal.
The b&b is part of a row of houses, so it blends into the environment.
I was checking in late but I was given clear instructions on how to check in. I booked a single room with a shared bathroom. The room was clean and modern, and the bed was soft and comfortable.
It was a small room, but ample for a budget hotel stay. The room had a function work desk and there was enough room to place my bags. The bathroom was also in good condition.
The Le Chasseur lives up to the second “B” in its name with a catered breakfast. There was cereal and toast, yogurt, and a pot of coffee. There was also a chef/kitchen hand there cooking eggs and pancakes to order.
In addition to breakfast there is also a self-catering kitchen if you are doing your own cooking. This would be useful to cut costs if you are on a longer trip around Canada. For my short trip I wasn’t bothered to self cater.
The location turned out to be great as I walked everywhere. It’s not right in the middle of town, but Montreal is a very walkable city (though I say that having visited in spring). The b&b is in the Gay Village neighbourhood, a block away from the colourful St Catherine St.
