I booked 6 nights here having read the reviews and I really have to say that it's been a really comfortable stay. One of the best rooms I've stayed in (Room 201) it has a small sitting room off the main bedroom. The double sized shower and well designed en suite just makes the room feel boutique. The room we...

This hotel is georgous. Very well located in the center. The owners are extremely nice. Very luxurious and stylish! We had an amazing stay. Go for the 201 or 301. Nicer rooms i think. The breakfast is served into your room every morning which is super nice.

I spent 5 nights at Le Relais in October 2016. What a beautiful hotel! Although to me, it was more like a bed and breakfast. My room was on the second floor, in the front. It was sooooo comfortable and the shower was wonderful! The gentlemen manning the front desk and the ladies who worked in housekeeping were all super... More

Great location on St Denis, close to transit. Got the suite with a balcony, very comfortable and well appointed. Staff (owners/management) were very friendly and helpful. Nice touch with the fresh muffins and croissant at the door each morning. Would definitely stay again at my next visit to Montreal. Parking lot about one block away.

Nice rooms with a great shower, good central location, and friendly staff. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it as well. The hotel served a breakfast every morning that included croissants, muffins, orange juice, butter, and jams. The room was equipped with a very good coffee maker.

Le Relais Lyonnais is in a somewhat transitional college neighborhood but the staff and rooms more than make for it... Great location and they make you feel like family. The complimentary continental in room breakfast was a nice touch.

This hotel for the price was great, quaint and quiet, loved the character of the location including the Tim Hortons right next door and Bistro a Jojo a couple doors down. Would be better location in warmer months when you can do more walking to your destination.The only downfall is that there is nowhere to stop and unload your luggage... More

After staying in somewhat touristy Old Montreal we chose Le Relais Lyonnais in an effort to experience a real Montreal neighborhood and were not disappointed. Located on a busy street of bars, restaurants, and the neighborhood theatre we were happy that our room was located on the first floor at the back of the building, very quiet. The modern room...

Staying in Quartier des Spectacles

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier des Spectacles
The bar-none entertainment district for music and arts, Quartier des Spectacles is an interactive playground that delights the senses. It totals over 30 performance halls, with the vibrant Place des Festivals at its heart. The outdoor event space features glowing towers, glass edifices, and granite-lined bike paths, and hosts annual festivals, concerts, and comedy nights. The cinema, theatres, and exhibition centres are entwined with external art projects, exemplified at Montreal's Contemporary Art Museum and appearing along every walkway of the Promenade des Artistes in the form of sculpture and public works, from digitally-enhanced swingsets to glowing fountains. Design, performance, and alternative music come together here, a stone's throw from the lively Latin Quarter along Rue Saint-Denis, the quintessential after-party spot for dinner and a drink following a day of jazz, poetry and play.
