Powered by AI

Nestled in Old Montreal, Hôtel Bonaparte is widely recognized for its charming and intimate atmosphere, with a nod to vintage elegance. Guests enjoy the unique and stylish room décor, laud the comfortable beds, and appreciate the spacious bathrooms, though some consider the rooms to be on the cozy side. The hotel's location is a hit, situated conveniently near top attractions and offering a tranquil setting. While some visitors feel the pricing is steep, the exemplary cleanliness and attentive service, including a distinctive breakfast basket delivery, frequently receive high marks. However, guests have suggested a desire for a variety of pillow options to enhance comfort.

Very nice boutique hotel in a good location, walking distance to all the sites and restaurants in the Old Port area.
My room, on the top floor (level6) with nice views, was quite small but a good use of space and nicely furnished. There was a comfortable king size bed, a good size bathroom with a big walk in shower. The free wifi is good and there is a large good quality TV.

I had no problem with the continental breakfast left in a tray each morning. It is not huge but adequate including a different fresh pastry each morning, juice, yoghurt, a piece of cheese and fruit. My only disappointment was there was no kettle available to make a cup of tea.

The staff were friendly & helpful. Housekeeping is on demand by leaving a card on the outside of the room. And there is an upmarket highly regarded restaurant attached to the hotel.

A very pleasant and comfortable stay.

Two weeks ago my wife Pat and I stayed at Hotel Bonaparte for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Hotel is just lovely and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Throughout the weekend the reception staff answered all our questions and provided helpful suggestions which really enhanced our stay. Special mention to Jason and Amy who could not have been more helpful and pleasant, as well as the gentleman Saturday morning (can't remember his name) who gave us maps of the city and took the time to point out various places of interest for our walk around the city as well as some excellent restaurant recommendations. The Hotel rooms are attractive and perfectly clean. Our room, facing the courtyard, was very quiet with a lovely view of the Notre Dame Basilica. The Hotel Restaurant is excellent; a lovely breakfast each morning (included in the room rate) and a lovely dinner one evening. The restaurant wait staff is excellent and very friendly. Located in the heart of Old Montreal, the Hotel Bonaparte is the perfect place to stay for a lovely visit.

Stayed here for 1 night in early January, in a Standard 1 Queen bed (it was actually a Murphy type bed) and booked through Expedia. The room was really lovely and comfortable, with beautiful bathroom. The whole property was also quite chic with very pleasant and friendly staff, and in great walkable location. Due to covid precautions (curfew in place etc), our breakfast was delivered into our room (had to book a time slot in advance), and even though modest (yoghurts, fruit, croissants, coffee etc) it was actually quite nice. Had a really good stay here and would gladly return when back in Montreal!

We had a fantastic stay at the Hotel Bonaparte in montreal, the hotel is a boutique style with probably 48 rooms, it looks very new as the room we had on top floor with balcony was spotless and had no signs of wear and tear.The breakfast we had was delivered to the room at an agreed time each morning, although basic it was enough for us as consisted of a bagel or pancake, a bottle of juice, yoghurt, some cheese, a peach and a muffin. A new coffee machine was in the room along with iron ironing board and safe.
The service we received at reception was excellent, especially from the Lady who checked us in on Sat 7th August.
The balcony on top floor room was spacious and we were lucky to get room 607 as it enabled a view around Montreal to the left.
Overall would recommend this Hotel as was in excellent location and was finished to a high standard.

Lovely boutique hotel, walking distance to everything in Vieux Montreal. Especially great being around the corner from Place D’Armes. Our 5th floor room faced away from the street, though I’m not sure how much street noise there was had it been over the street. The mid priced type of room was very nicely sized. Thankfully, a fold-out luggage rack was in the closet.
A lovely old fashioned desk is what we used for eating the great breakfasts that came each morning in a gilded metal basket, hung on a hook outside the room doors. And they were really filling breakfasts, including bottled OJ. They also included a packet of two cookies, presumably for snacking later in the day. The fridge was a good size, and an espresso maker and two cups were on top. Coffee pods were supplied when we asked housekeeping.

The bathroom was roomy, with a huge modern sink. But this trend means the sinks have a flat bottom, which take forever to drain. And the size takes away space formerly used for your toiletry bag. So that looked good but was rather ridiculous. The shower stall was roomy, and was set up so that you could use either the shower wand, which was fairly easy to aim where you wanted it, or the rainfall head. The bed was even larger than our US king size, but was extremely firm. They did not have a second type of pillow, which was disappointing. So we were stuck with a relatively flat style that didn’t even pretend to be down alternative. This is the type and level of hotel that should have at least two pillow styles available.

Staff was helpful when we asked for advice, but we were unable to get help rolling all our luggage down the street about 5 blocks to near our cruise dock the morning we checked out. We had heard from other reviewers that a staff person had assisted with this. But we managed ok, despite being on a hill and crossing streets. So this is a very good location if staying here before or after a cruise.

We stayed at the Bonaparte for 4 nights. The room was extremely quiet and very comfortable. The employees were extremely helpful and helped us get around Montreal. We had an early morning flight leaving Montreal and the staff made sure we had transportation and brought coffee to the taxi as we were departing. This is an outstanding small hotel.

The location is perfect. It is around the corner from the Notre Dame Basilica and various nice restaurants within a short walk. The room was a good size, with a king bed and a modern bathroom. The staff was very helpful and nice to work with. Shoutout to Luke and Samuel. The breakfast is a bit quirky. They deliver to the room (hang a basket on a hook outside the door w/o disturbing us) between 7:00 - 8:00, a continental breakfast that included for two people, two pastries (one day two large muffins, the other two days two large croissants), two sticks of cheese, two small yogurts, two clementine oranges and a small bottle of apple juice and a small bottle of orange juice. In the room, there was a refrigerator and a coffee machine with pods and two bottles of water that were replaced each day. However, upon check in, we were advised that if we preferred real brewed coffee or cappuccino, they would make it, which we asked (went down to the front desk) and they did. Also, the hotel has a very upscale French restaurant which was excellent. Lastly, since this is not the busy season, we requested a late check-out (2:00) on Sunday because we had a 5:00 p.m. flight and they did it.

We had a very comfortable five day stay at the Bonaparte, during a cold and snowy week before Christmas. Great location, right in the middle of the old town, surrounded by cafes and restaurants, and of course the cathedral. Our room overlooked the cathedral grounds and we heard the lovely bells in the distance from time to time. Being Covid time, the staff had a different breakfast brought to the room each morning, and were very helpful with anything we needed. Would definitely stay here again.

The staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful. The room was immaculate and really comfortable. Complimentary water, coffee, tea. Breakfast was delivered to your room between 7-8am. Consisted of a muffin, fruit, cheese and yoghurt. We didn’t fly until 9:30pm but they kept hold of our bags and called a taxi to take us to the airport. It’s a fixed taxi fee of cad$50, which after a long trek around Canada, was fine by us. One tip was that our taxi driver took us to the American terminal, which had no traffic. The 2 minute walk through the terminal to the British Airways check in desks was much better than sitting in the traffic. Thank you for ending our trip on a high.

Well situated close to city highlights, lovely welcome by reception staff and clear instructions on where to park. Our room was well appointed, reception even brought me a kettle for tea without my requesting it. Great shower in the bathroom. Breakfast is delivered in a basket outside your door in the morning, croissant with butter ,jam and cheese, yogurt and a fruit juice.

Answer from Anne-Marie M

Dear gidgetmiller13, We do have rooms with two Queen-sized beds at our hotel. These Deluxe rooms are quite large, face the interior courtyard, and have washrooms that feature both standing tub and glass shower. They are limited in our inventory, so it is best to reserve them in advance!
