I loved the location of this hotel; right within walking distance of a light rail stop. It made navigating the city very easy. The neighborhood its in is very cute with lots of hip restaurants, shops, theaters, etc. Later at night, the crowd gets a bit drunker and rowdier, but up until that point, it's a lively, charming neighborhood.

The hotel, itself, is a bit old. I'm not used to not having any air conditioning at all in hotels. Luckily, we visited during a cool September weekend, but I can imagine it would have been hard to deal with in the heat of summer or dead of winter. As it was, we still had to crack a window at all times to make the room more bearable. The rooms are small, but hey, you get what you pay for.

I saw other reviews which said that the staff was mean, but I never got this impression. They were pretty to-the-point, which I didn't mind.

Overall, I can't complain much about an inexpensive hotel so near the rail line.

After reading a couple of bad reviews of this place, my buddies and I thought that staying at this place would be a terrible idea--we were totally wrong. True, that this isn't exactly your Ritz Carlton, but remember that you get what you pay for. Don't expect a five-star hotel for $80 a night. It's basically your no frills hotel.

Would this be a good hotel to bring the family? Maybe not. Is it a good place for young people to stay to save a couple bucks so they can party harder in Montreal? Absoutely.

For a couple of young guys in our 20's, we had a memorable time in this hotel. Being on St. Denis, it's close to many popular restaurants, clubs, and bars. Interestingly enough, the hotel is right beside L'Axe strip club. That may be a good thing for some of you boys out there. It's also close to the St. Catherine scene (if you know what i'm talking about). And for those who like to party crazy until the sun comes up, Aria is just right down the street--the hotel is in a perfect location to stumble in for a late morning snooze. As well, the hotel is within reasonable walking distance to the popular St. Laurent club and bar scene.

The hotel is crammed with many young money conscious people. So if you're looking for a couple of guys or gals to party with, this could be the place.

There were a few negatives about this place:

- First, the parking situation at the hotel was less than ideal. I did not trust parking my car behind the back alley of the hotel. Parking was very cramp and would only hold about 8-10 cars max. The parking was also very incovenient. You basically had to walk up to Ontario St. and then make your way down St. Denis to the hotel.

- The rooms in the hotel are very small; however with some creative rearranging of the furniture, our standard one bed hotel room was able to house 3 guys and 2 air matresses.

- Third, our hotel room had a really funky smell to it. The smell was so strong that I was able to notice the noxious odors while I passed out after a night of heavy drinking and partying.

- Finally, the wake up call system was non-existent. We put in a wake up call for Sunday, May 21, 2006 at 11:00am and to this date we're still waiting for it; they never called. As well, there are no alarm clocks in the room, but thankfully cell phones have alarm clock features.

The Latin Quarter definitely has some character to it. If you're looking to have a good time in Montreal and only need a hotel room to sleep, get intimate, and house your personal belongings, then this is the place for you. Montreal is a fantastic place with all its history, culture, nightlife, and most importantly, its dark-haried French beauties. It's a top-notch place to unwind and have a great time. When in Montreal, there's no need to be uptight. It's a great city and when you're having this much fun with all the things to do here, the hotel should be the last thing on your mind. Yes, I may have noted more negatives than positives, but I think this hotel rocks! I definitely would come back and stay at the Latin Quarter again; it's a great bang for your buck.

I wanted a cheap and clean place on or near St Denis street in Montreal and this place more than fit the bill. I read reviews here before booking and was somewhat skeptical but after seeing the place upon checking in I was relieved. Its located next to a strip club so I wouldnt bring kids around here but its perfect for a weekend stay in Montreal. Room was clean although it did have the smell of smoke which didnt bother me too much. Our room was in the basement and was a good size. I never felt cramped and had plenty of space. Check-in was easy as its a small place and the man at the desk let me see the room before check-in. Ive stayed in at least 10 hotels in Montreal at various times and this one was more than fine. Ive also stayed at hotels all over the US and Europe and this one was comparable with most. Those who posted negative reviews I feel are just picky. I mean what do you expect from a 2-3 star hotel? Its cheap, clean and the location is fantastic. A convenience store and the subway are about a 2 minute walk and there are countless bars and clubs all within walking distance. Parking was around the corner at the Library Archives and was only $9 a day for completely secured parking- thats a steal.
Hotel is definitely a good deal if you can get a room cheap. Id stay again and might make this my new hotel when I visit Montreal!

The only downside is the walls are a bit thin and you can hear people at times but it never kept me from sleeping. Didn't try the breakfast so I cant comment.

The hotel is located in the city center. And this is the only positive thing
The room was dirty, windows wasn't washed for ages. The linen wasn't changed and washed after previous visitors, hair on the pillow cases.
The bathroom was disgusting, toilet was leaking. The show tap didn't work properly so, we couldn't take a shower.
The room wasn't maintained properly, dirty socks of previous visitors was under a bed.
There was no A/C, heater in the room
The smell of mold was everywhere, in the room, bathroom, common areas.
It's extremely noisy, we could hear every step and voices of upstair neighbors because no any soundproof.
The owner/manager was extremely rude. We told him we couldn't sleep at night due to extreme cold in the room and noise and we're going to leave the hotel but he didn't care about our comfort, he just said that the room was kept for us and he lost the profit because we were going to leave.
I can't imagine how such disgusting property can be used as the accomodation for visitors because it can't be well to settle the animals there.
It was the worst experience ever to stay a night there.
If you want to spoil your holiday book this hotel.
Everything is bad there.

No control over heat or AC, indigents on front step smoking cigarettes and pot, miserable unfriendly old man at the front desk.Stayed here for three days, it was the worst decision I ever made. Loud slamming steel fire doors at all hours of the night, government immigrant flop house. If you have any self dignity, you might want to consider staying else where.

The Quartier Latin Hotel in Montreal is a disgrace and should be demolished. It’s a nasty hotel something you won’t even see in a third world country. If possible I would give it “no stars” but one was the minimum

I went to this hotel because Orbitz showed that it was 2 star, close to Catherine St., city view, and parking available. What A Lie! It was close to Catherine St, however, there was NO parking, in fact we had to park in a garage two blocks away and make two trips back and forth to our car in the parking garage, the cost of parking was expensive. Our room was on the fourth floor (no elevevator) and the room was overlooking the "city" which was really just a dumpster out back. It gets worse... I left a bag of cookies on the nightstand and went out for a few hours, and when I came back there was a huge ant infestation in the room, all over my clothes, in my bed, and all over the cookies. I told the person at the front desk, and at first he suggested we spray the ants with something to kill them, after enough arguing, he agrees to move us to a new hotel, two blocks away... making all our belongings 4 blocks away from our car. WHAT A PAIN IN THE ***!!! Not to mantion the room is the size of a broom closet! Oh yeah, the continental breakfast is a frickin muffin and a croissant that they must have bought down the street... and out front the sign reads "bead and breakfast." Dont be taken for a fool! BEWARE!!!

I am utterly shocked at all the bad reviews about this hotel. Don't believe them!!! I'm 23 years old and have travelled extensively through Europe. If you are a young, budget traveller and have ever stayed in a hostel or pension, this place will make you very happy. It is rediculously cheap too. The location is amazing, especially if you are going to be going to nightclubs. We walked everywhere.

I personally was extremely pleased. The staff was very helpful and spoke English. The towels were thin and scraggly but who cares, you are getting a budget hotel because you have no money, if you require plush towels then pay to stay somewhere nice, it doesn't take a genious to figure that out. The room was clean, the bathroom was clean. Since everyone is so hair obsessed on this site, here's what I have to say: There were 2 brown eyelashes on my pillow. I plucked them off the pillow and ate them because who cares about a couple of hairs?!!! You won't die. You won't even get sick. You won't get a disease. Brush them off. The sheets were obviously clean because they smelled like a fresh spring day. The room was BIGGER than expected. I was so inspired I hung up my clothes in the closet and put my socks in the drawers. I never do that. There was a TV. There was a hair dryer. There was soap. That is all you need. My girlfriend who is deathly afraid of bugs, hairs and stains and who refuses to stay in hostels was totally fine with this place. Not a complaint at all from her and that says alot.

If you are an conservative adult who is used to staying in big chain hotels and never roughed it in your life, or you are the kind of person who demands an entirely new burger at a restaurant because they accidently put tomatoes on it and even if you take them off "there's still a little bit of juice on it", or you used to tell the teacher when people cheated when you were in high school, or you correct people's grammar during ordinary conversation, or you home school your children... then don't stay here. You are obviously very uptight and picky. Go to the Holiday Inn where you can get all that complaining out of your system, snidely acting like a big shot when you tell the manager you are going to "contact the regional offices about this." Hotel Quartier Latin is $60 Canadian for a room, are you nuts, what do you expect??!?

Obviously this place isn't worth a 5. I mean its a 2 star hotel. But really, I was generally impressed by this place for the price. We got a double bed room for $74 Canadian. 2 couples sharing the room, we $20 each a night for our stay and loved every minute of it.

PS- Budget minded, relaxed adults don't think that this is a "party hotel." It was actually extremely quiet as well!!

PPS- If you are under 25 years old and have a problem with this place, it's time to learn to "chill out" a little bit.

COOL TRAVEL TIP:

In this hotel, there is no stereo in the rooms... But the TV has auxillary inputs in the front. So, if you bring your iPod and the cable you use to connect it to a stereo (headphone jack to red and white plugs), you can plug that into the front of the TV and use the TV's speakers as a stereo!! Awesome!!

My husband and I had a fine stay at the Hotel Quartier Latin earlier this year on the recommendation of a friend. Admittedly, the room was not as clean as it should have been -- there was hair in the shower and on the bathroom floor, and I'm still not sure what the smudge was on the toilet roll dispenser but I'd rather not think about it. But we were having such a good time we decided to let this slide, and booked again for July.

What a mistake.

I phoned in June and made a three-night reservation for late July. I received a confirmation number over the phone and assumed all was fine. When we arrived, everything again was fine, and I filled out a (completely blank) check-in card with my address, license plate info, etc. All seemed well and we settled into our very small but adequate room for two uneventful nights. There was a refrigerator in the room, great for my husband's medication, and the room was reasonably clean.

On the morning of our third night, however, the problems began. The day clerk told us upon returning from brunch that he'd expected us to be out at noon. I explained that he was mistaken and we were reserved for three nights, and he said that was wrong and we would have to leave the hotel. I dug out my confirmation number and personal notes indicating the correct dates I had requested. The clerk, who had no real evidence to the contrary, attempted to convince me I had agreed at check-in that we were staying only two nights and that I had written it on the check-in card. This card was blank when I filled it in, and after the fact he had written in the dates to turn on and turn off the phone -- not real evidence at all. He then told me outright that I must be mistaken about the reservation because he would have tried to charge me $174 for the Saturday and not $89 as he had the previous two nights! Apparently there is no system for writing down reservations at the hotel with accurate information that he could show me, despite the fact that I had a confirmation number handy.

The clerk attempted to call, or pretended to call, the hotel manager twice to discuss the situation and eventually said that he'd handle it himself since the manager "probably wouldn't be as nice" as he would. (?!?) His "nice" solution was to have us move rooms (why??????) and charge us not $89, $89 and $174, but rather $109, $109 and $109 for the three nights. Since I was reserved for $89, $89, and $89, I was put off to say the least. But since my husband is ill and we hadn't the time to reschedule anywhere else on a very busy night (with Gay Pride right behind the hotel -- hmm, do you think they were hoping we'd leave so they could get a better price?) we agreed to let the hotel charge us an extra $60 *just to continue staying there when we were already reserved*!

Then we were not allowed to stay in our room since it was "rented" already, and were moved to a larger, much dirtier room! This room had no refrigerator, had black scuff marks on the wall next to one bed, hairs ALL OVER the sheets of both beds, and the bedside lamp was broken. It was an inexplicable and inexcusable "solution" to what was in the best case a mistake on their end, and the room was definitely not worth $109 no matter how busy a day it was.

The clerk also tried to get me to pay him in total up front numerous times, despite having my credit card on file and my insistence that I would pay my balance in cash at check-out. Perhaps this was because he knew the next day's clerk was exceedingly bad at math, even with a calculator, as another reviewer mentioned. This actually worked in our favour as he failed to overcharge me *quite* as much as the other clerk had intended. I also complained at check-out about the dirty sheets and the clerk seemed confused and embarrassed, and when I mentioned that the lamp was broken, he just said, "I don't know anything about the lamp."

Add us to the list of "never agains"!

After reading all the awful reviews i was nervous to stay at this hotel. The price was too good to be ignored though and my boyfriend and i kept the reservation. The hotel is in the center of the downtown montreal excitement. I would say this hotel is probably better for a younger crowd. This was all we saw for guests and it seemed apt. The walls are thin but except for a couple loud guys in the room next to us the last morning it was not a problem. The price we paid was near hostel prices and the accomodations were much more private with a full bath. The Creperie next door was wonderful as well, though slow service. We ate there both mornings. Staying away from the more touristy stuff we saw a lot of live jazz and blues for free. the artists were all friendly and interactive. Great stay over all. Better for people looking for a cheap place to stay instead of a romantic or a quite one.
