Love the Habs

Great atmosphere at the arena! Best of all the arenas we've been to. Easy to get in and out considering the size of the crowds.

I'm going to write this review from the perspective of someone who didn't attend a hockey game. Instead, I was present for a rock concert in April, 2016. The arena is located a short jaunt from many other commercial attractions in the city. You aren't likely to have issues with parking offsite, and walking to the arena. The nearby Eaton... More

Coming from Boston, I thought I knew a huge hockey arena. But the Bell Centre is massive - the people seated on the highest rows are basically vertically stacked. The energy here is amazing. If you have the chance, you should absolutely see a game while in Montréal.

If you can get tickets to a game while in Montreal, be sure to attend one. We were very fortunate to see the Boston Bruins and then the Toronto Maple Leafs. Habs won both games! Fantastic experience in the worlds largest arena. Fans are fanatic and enthusiastic about their team.

As a longtime fan of the Montreal Canadiens this is an absolute must. Took in a Habs home game and it was a great experience. I was really impressed with the tribute section for the greats from the past. If this is your first visit to a game arrive early and take it all in.

The problem with the Bell Centre is that getting around the arena is a pain, Narrow hallways and lots of people. The beer prices of over $12CAD is incredible. Food prices are better but still challenging. Though no fault of the Bell Centre parking is major problem, with the nearby buildings and lots charging $25-30 CAD while trying to leave... More

Love going to Habs games whenever we can. There isn't a bad seat there. (I don't think) They get you in quickly and the traffic isn't too bad when the game lets out. We usually are walking though.

The stadium is modern, nice and clean. The bathrooms are beyond huge and clean. There is no line!!!! There are many concession stands and the security is high. The MC entertaining the crowd was fabulous. We had a great time.

I experience my first Hockey Game in Montreal at the Bell center! wow what an experience! well organized and huge! Super place!. As an advice please do not bring large objects such as cameras as they will not let you in with them.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
