I've got a list of my favorite hotels for staying on the Plateau, and Kutuma is solidly at the top of the list. The location is convenient, the rooms quirky but pleasant, and I've always had top-notch service from staff (including them being very accommodating when I accidentally booked two rooms instead of one).

They only have valet parking, but the charges are reasonable and the staff very fast at retrieving vehicles.

Only oddity? The entire hotel sits upstairs of an Ethiopian restaurant (same owners, indeed, the check-in desk is also the maitre d's station for the restaurant), and the highly aromatic (but pleasing) odors from the restaurant are present through most of the hotel. It's definitely not unpleasant, but if you like Ethiopian food? You'll often be hungry

I have stayed in this hotel several times now. It is only four floors. Each room is charming and updated with a kitchenette for cleaning wine glasses and plate. It is connected to the equally awesome Ethiopian restaurant The Blue Nile which offers in room dining. Great little fire escape patio which is quintessential Montreal architecture. So much to see in a 30 min walking radius.

I had big expectations according to the reviews.

The level of professionalism and care in my arrival and the beautiful room exceeded my expectations

I believe big hoteles should learn to design rooms like Kutuma.

It will be my first choice in Montréal in the future

The service was amazing! Staff was very friendly, offered coffee and croissant every morning. The staff carried our bags to our Uber in the rain…. So incredibly kind!

The room was clean, huge bed, huge tub, great shower with rain fall shower head. It was in a great location, 15-20 minute walk to mile end area and 20-25 to old town, 15 min to Mount Royale, cafes around every corner! Stop looking this is our spot!

Kutuma Hotel in Montreal, Quebec, offers a nice room. But the location is not really as I expected.. (personally would rather choose Old Montreal area once visited the area). If you plan to stay there try to book rooms at lower level since there is no elevator (got the room at 4th floor, but luckily the hotel staff help carrying our big luggages up and downstair). The hotel reception staff were all nice.

We stayed 4 nights at the Hotel Katuma in June 2006 over the Formula 1 Race weekend. The room was great...very spacious, including a whirlpool tub, kitchen, living area, and king size bed. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. They made us feel very welcome and took care of all of our needs. We tried the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner (room service) and the food and service was outstanding. Danny at the front desk was very freindly and helpful. He even went out of his way to show us a few other rooms within the hotel, which were also excellent. We can't wait to stay here again.
Great location, great room, great family owned hotel, great price!

Not sure if there was a management change, but there seems to be a serious disconnect from my experience and the other reviews. We booked 2 junior suites for $150 based on their reviews on trip advisor. We called on the drive up to Montreal, and they took our credit card info and said we were all set. When we arrived, they told us that the the junior suite was not available. However, a deluxe suite was available for $15 more. We told them that we had just reserved this suite about 1.5 hours earlier by phone, but they said only internet reservations were valid, not phone reservations...Hmm, ok?...Since it was only a $15 difference, I tried to at least give them the benefit of the doubt and I asked to see both rooms, amazingly the deluxe suite was smaller with a queen bed instead of a king (and far less impressive than the junior suite). The rooms I saw were pretty dingy & were covered with a leopard skin decor and reeked..I mean reeked of cheap massage oil. Needless to say, I didn't take the room. They also tried to work us for unnecessary valet parking, by lying to us about parking hours on the street. Anyway, we left, and the first place we found was for a far better room for $90 per night(about 60% of the room cost at Katuma) Took us 5 minutes, people were happy to have our business and room was much nicer, and included breakfast as well. In all my stays at places reviewed well on Trip advisor, this one was by far the worst of the bunch..my advice is STAY AWAY FROM KUTUMA.

This is one amazing hotel and hands down the best I've ever stayed in. Think boutique hotel, but very reasonably priced, located in the heart of the very chic and sought after Plateau district of Montreal. This small but very plush, stylish five star hotel is complemented by an Ethiopian restaurant, Le Nil Bleu, on the ground floor that serves up some very tasty and healthy dishes. One could walk by this hotel never realizing the amazing experience to be found inside.

I stayed here in late November and was given room 401. There's no elevator and you'll walk up approximately 51 stairs to the top floor but you'll get all the help you need carrying suitcases and luggage. I believe the rooms here are all suites and this was one of their largest, if not the largest. They are tastefully decorated in an African themed motif. The room faces Rue St. Denis (not all rooms do) and yet there was very little noise at all from the busy street down below. Large windows overlook the street from the bedroom and bath.

My room had a well equipped kitchen with a full sized refrigerator, a small table with two chairs, and a door leading to a very small fire escape/terrace in back. Adjacent to the kitchen is a living room with a love seat, table and oversized chair. The bedroom sported a very comfortable king sized bed and quite adequate closet space. The bed was so comfortable and the room so spacious that I never wanted to leave. For those on business there is also a desk and chair as you enter, just inside the door.

This was impressive enough until I saw the bathroom. Wow! Spacious doesn't adequately describe it, since it was easily the size of most NYC hotel rooms (including their bath). The bathroom is set off from the bedroom by sliding glass doors allowing light from the main room to filter in. As you open the doors you face a large two person hot tub adorned with candles and chic bath products. There's a toilet, bidet, two sinks side by side and a large shower. The area is spotlessly clean with added amenities such as terrycloth bathrobes and an assortment of bath products, towels, a vanity mirror for those applying make-up, etc... including two large leather chairs. Amazing!

All rooms are very well lit. There's lighting everywhere, from overhead to lamps. Most are controlled by dimmers that allow you to set the mood anywhere throughout the spacious apartment.

There are also four, count them ... four, thermostats, all individually controlled by the guests. Want the heat in the bathroom set differently from that in the bedroom or kitchen? You control it all. And it works very well.

Of course there is a large flatscreen TV, which I didn't really watch, but which I tuned to the local music stations, including a terrific jazz channel.

All the staff here, without exception, are courteous, polite, cheerful and very helpful. The hotel provides valet service for far less than what I paid to hotels in the Old Port and it, too, was very efficient. Just call ten minutes in advance and they'll have your car.

The hotel is conveniently located. There are many restaurants, shops and boutiques nearby. It's just a few blocks from the Metro and around the corner is a lovely park. Strolling this neighborhood is like a stroll through Paris. You can't go wrong.

I would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend Hotel Kotuma to anyone staying in Montreal.

I have been to Montreal about 10 times in the past few years and each time I have stayed at a different hotel--always looking for just the right mix of quality, price and location. This time I stayed at Hotel Kutuma. It was a short distance from where I needed to be and the price was very good I was absolutely amazed. The staff is the best, no doubt. The room was very well-appointed and comfortable and the breakfast that they served was exceptional. The location was perfect---right on St. Denis, a short walk to the heart of the Latin Quarter and just a block away from the very lovely Saint-Louis Square. And I liked getting away from the large chain hotels. This one is family-owned and operated.

We stayed here one night and it was not a nice experience. This is a tiny lodging facility with almost no front desk, no security and no elevator. My room is on the third floor. I have to carry my luggages and bags, climbing up the stairs. Twice I almost tripped off the stairs. The room is dark, black and rustic. The floor is somewhat dusted. The bedsheets look worn out and brown and the bed is uncomfortable. Prior to the check-in, the manager promised me something, but after I arrived, I was shocked to find out that the manager cannot promise anything. As to the parking, the temporary parking off the busy street was not comfortable. It was like parking by the street meter if you can find space. The receptionist told me that last night one guest's car was broken in and that is why it is highly suggested that guests leave the cars to the hotel for $28 a night for they to look out for you. Overall, this place is more an apartment than a hotel. It is not cheap and is a big disappointment to me. I definitely don't recommend this place to anyone.

The balcony looks onto the back of the property where there is a lane with trees and the back of other neighborhood properties. I don't think there are any particular views but the rooms are large and very comfortable.
