My apartment building was having major plumbing work done for three days, so I had to vacate the premises. My landlord would only pay $70/night, so my choices were limited. I only checked reviews after I had booked, and then began to be concerned. But my experience was fine. I paid for a room with a double bed, and they gave me a king size. Check-in was simple, and the guy at the front desk, Denis, was great. It is true that the wifi signal sometimes drops, but it was adequate for me to work from my room (I usually work from home). The signal was more than adequate during the day, but gets really slow around 6:00, I suppose because that's when most guests come back to their rooms. If you need a strong wifi signal, tell them - they told me it's best on the 1st or 2nd floors. Breakfast is basic, and the coffee is, well, awful, but that's a minor complaint. When it came time to leave, the work at my apartment wasn't done yet, so I paid $30 for a late check-out. That was easy, too. So all in all, no major complaints. It's a 2-star hotel, so don't expect the Ritz, but my room was clean and comfortable, and it met my needs.

Hotel des Arts was filthy and smelled like a horse barn. The lights did not work in the 1st room we were given and there was no TV. In the 2nd room, TV did not work. We ended up leaving and going to another hotel.

This is the grimiest and dingiest hotel we have ever stayed in , fooled by the reviews, I thought as it was only for one night ...... wrong. Seedy, dirty , gross. There is no redeeming feature here, how people can descibe this as value for money, I would have preferred to sleep on the streets , but the area did not lend itself to this idea. Ants in the bathroom, peeling paint, filthy light switches , even more filthy carpets , stank of smoke in a non smoking room, spatterings of something disgusting on the walls and doors, , oh and the besy part, hairs (not ours ) in the sheets , a blanket (the type that you would have have incinerated to clean it ) with cigarette burns, holes , we slept on the bed not in it, we passed on the "Breakfast " think thats what they called it , this is the first time I have reviewed a hotel in this way, and I definately hope it is my last . ugh, ......,makes me shiver

We went to Montreal as a family while my husband was on a work trip. We chose the Hotel des Arts for its location but the location could not make up for the poor quality of the room. There were cigarette burn holes in the bedspread, the baseboard heater smelled when we turned on the A/C, the Wifi did not work in our room, the beds were HARD AS A ROCK (I just sat on it) etc. etc. We tried to cancel our three night stay and were told to call the booking company - the company said to talk to the hotel - and it became a game of phone tag. The front staff was extremely unaccommodating and, when met with adversity (another traveller was trying to get his money back at the same time I was), she claimed that it was her first day on the job. Speaking with a manager was not possible as she claimed that he would not be in until the next morning. We did not take her up on the offer and chose not to stay there at all in the hopes of reaching a resolution that would see some of our money returned. I wanted so badly to be pleased with the hotel for the price, but I would highly recommend spending a little more money and staying somewhere else.

Having read other reviews after I had already booked and fully paid for a night freaked me out a little but I have to say staying there for a night was actually a totally unspectacular affair. The check-in and check-out was seamless and both staff were very friendly and pleasant. The room itself showed its age but was clean, a/c was working fine and we had a good nights sleep. However, as in many older hotels, the wall insulation and especially the noise from the corridor might be problematic, especially at the weekend (we stayed during the week) if you have inconsiderate pricks coming back early in the morning who slam their doors. But given that this is a two star budget hotel, this is something to be expected and I experienced it in much pricier hotel as well (the inconsiderate pricks that is ...). Breakfast was simple (bagels, jam, butter, chocolate croissants, coffee, tea and juice) but sufficient. And for sure the location is as central as it gets. Only caveat is parking: virtually all parking in downtown Montreal is permit only, so parking garages are the only option (and this can be anywhere from $11-$30 for the night).

We just stayed at the Hotel Des Arts and I must say for a budget tourist class hotel, you can't beat the price or location. The St Laurent Metro was just steps away from everything we wanted to do and for what you got for the price was quite satisfactory for us. Parking was non existent but since we came to Montreal by train, that in no way was not an issue. Our biggest complaint was that there was a lack of communication between the housekeeping staff and the front desk. After the first day, the housekeeping staff forgot to bring us cups and facecloths. My wife and I need four facecloths per night, but luckily the front desk staff were able to provide the face cloths for us as well as the cups. I don't mind going down to ask, but I should not have to do this every time we come back from a day of hard sightseeing. The location was convenient, is in a questionable area and at night it appeared a little creepy, particularly the one night after we came back from the Jennifer Lopez concert at Centre Bell. The breakfast was ok but it offered little variety-virtually everything was carbs. I think that could have used a little improvement. The overall atmosphere in our view was that of a glorified youth hostel, but since we can afford to travel but not stay at a luxury hotel, this more then filled the bill with us. If you are not fussy and can put up with minor inconveniences, Montreal is still an affordable city to visit and this hotel is a prime example of affordability.

This place is gross , gross , gross. We tried to get out money back so we could move after our first night ( they take your money upfront so my guess is this is not uncommon ) . We couldn’t afford to move in that case . The halls smell like smoke . The service is nonexistent. The rooms are dirty ,moldy and run down . Wall splatter with god knows what . Don’t make the mistake of giving this place your money .

Booked ahead, the photos do not reflect the condition of the rooms. Told room had been cleaned and shown to the room . It had not been cleaned. Cleaner arrived 1 hour after we had checked in a cleaned around us ( 4.30 pm). The rooms are tried and in need of painting upgrade. The linen sheets are cheap and nasty. Open the blinds and the outside courtyard is full of rubbish. The breakfast is cheaper than cheap and basic. Not enough tables and chairs for all guests to sit down. Look behind the reception desk at how untidy and unorganised things are - that shows what the rest of the place is like. This hotel needs management that can get the basics right and pay attention to the basic fundamentals of operating a hotel. That’s not expensive- it’s called experience. Not a good experience This hotel is NOT recommended!!!!! Avoid at all costs !!!!!!!!

Good hotel, comfortable rooms, very well situated, a few blocks away from the most important tourist attractions. Good price value relation. Breakfast was just OK but it had all the basics you would expect. Very friendly staff.
