After location and cleanliness, little to offer. Property management business should not be in the hospitality field unless they are prepared to give better customer service and value to clients. No personal contact with their client, 24/7 e-mail slow to respond.

I would definitely stay here again should I ever go back to Halifax! It is clean, comfortable and in walking distance to anything you could possibly want to see. People are friendly. It was a home away from home.

The Novel Stay inn is a basic affordable place to stay in a great area of Halifax. This place is more of a hostel place, but with people having their own rooms. Restrooms are shared and clean. The living room downstairs is a nice place, where one can store food and eat. This inn is two short blocks away from the major shopping, eating and entertaining area of the city

I would definitely stay here again! The Novel Stay is in a renovated older home in a very walkable part of Halifax. I describe it as 'hostel meets B&B' but minus the breakfast & no bunk beds. The house features locked individual rooms and a shared kitchen & living room. The Novel Stay is very unassuming from the front (don't bother looking for a sign!). Parking is tight if you bring a car, but is there if you pre-sign up for it. If you drive a very large truck, the entrance & parking will be even tighter. The inside of the Stay is very cozy-chic and the bed was one of the best I've ever slept on! If you're open to an alternate-style from a hotel or motel, this place is great!

This property is located, right in the heart of Halifax, minutes to the board walk (water front), and close to the universities. The rooms are well furnished. And the stay has a good kitchen. If you are a couple, this is a better option then Hosteling International, as it is going to cost almost the same, but comes with better facilities and finishes.

The property manager Neil, was really helpful, and made sure that our stay was pleasant.

Room Tip: We liked the room without the bathroom in it.
