Firstly, this place is in the heart of Montreal. Few stops on the metro to downtown. Plateau Mont Royal is on the doorstep.
What can I say about my host's. They were very responsive and accommodating. Being a little prissy, I expected there to be an iron and ironing board in the apartment (I hate being in public with creased clothes). There was one that was shared, however with a day they had purchased additional irons and (URL HIDDEN) I had one to keep in the apartment during the entirety of my stay...thank you guys.
Its a little tiny for long stays but for short visit its great, I actually stayed there for about three weeks while looking for a long term rental.
All the utensils, cutlery, crockery, cooker, fridge freezer, microwave and toaster are provide. All you have to do is buy groceries! Saying that, there are numerous places to eat, from Albanian to Venezuelan (sorry could not find w, x,y and z).
Supermarkets, Jean Talon Market, Metro are within walking distance.
Only one thing, there was no coffee maker or French press in the apartment. So if you need a caffeine fix first thing in the morning there are numerous multi chain coffee shops.....best is just walk across the street in your pyjamas to Cafe Myriade.
There is internet access, but there is also a back up. Additionally, I had four items connected and there was no issue.
You will also find telephone numbers in case you need to get in touch with the hosts. Plus there is also washing machines and dryers in the basement, just bring your own soap.
Finally, the apartment looks just like in the photographs......down to the last detail with the flowers on the table.
Definitely worth booking for the atmosphere, area and attention of the hosts.
