A group of us stayed here over the weekend and got a great deal. In addition to it's very reasonable rates, parking was free and conveniently in front of the hotel. The service was overall very good-Sam & Edy were especially helpful & cordial. Thanx to Sam's recommendation, a friend & I enjoyed lunch at a great Crepes place a mere 5 min walk away.
You just can't beat the price, the clean rooms, service & LOCATION.

We were only going for a weekend and we just found this hotel on expedia. We checked the ratings and decided to give it a shot. Who would've thought that the hotel would turn out this great. We were so impressed. The staff there was very friendly, the rooms were clean and just the right size and, the hotel was close to everything. We would definetly go back again and recommend it to other travellers who are heading to Montreal.

My daughter and I stayed here for our last night of a 6 day trip to Montreal & Quebec City. (Earlier part of the trip stayed at the excellent Hotel XIX Siecle in Vieux Montreal, but decided to save money for our last night.) Chose this hotel based on good reviews for value and cleanliness. Place was a bit shabbier/plainer than we expected from the reviews but overall room cleanliness was very good for the price. Unfortunately construction going on across and up the street awakened us at 7AM with very loud digging equipment, saws, etc., but that's not the hotel's fault. The surly attitude by the morning front desk person makes me give this place a resounding negative. First, he knocked on our door to inform us that check out time was 11AM--as if we had overstayed, when in fact it was 10 minutes before 11 and we were preparing to leave. Then, he yelled at us for using an upstairs exit door and stairway to bring down a large suitcase. The desk person the day before had allowed us to use this more convenient and less narrow/twisty staircase when we checked in and we assumed it was ok to take the same route for our departure. (The indoor stairway is very narrow and winding and I feared that I'd scrape the walls with my suitcase if I had to bring it up & down that way.) I apologized and tried to explain to him that we had been given permission by the gentleman working the desk the day before, but he just repeated that we were "never" to use that exit and that he didn't care what we'd been told. (Note that I am a woman traveling with my 18 year old daughter, and we did not ask for nor expect any assistance with the suitcase.) I would never stay here again due to his lack of courtesy and overall sour attitude.

When we visited Montreal recently, we were looking for hotel with reasonable rates close to the Old City. TripAdvisor reviews of this hotel were consistently positive, and we decided to take a chance. We're very glad we did, and we would definitely stay at the Hotel de l'Elysée again.

Not only is the location great - just a stone's throw from the fabulous restaurants of rue St-Denis and a mere 15-20 minute walk from the Old City - but the staff is outstanding. Many of the TripAdvisor reviews laud Sam at the front desk, and rightly so. Sam ROCKS! The moment we showed up, he was there to let us in and help us up the stairs with our bags. He was an invaluable source of information on everything from where to eat to where we could find a free parking spot for the whole weekend. The entire staff was friendly, and pleased to speak in both English and French (they were extremely tolerant of _mon français mal_!)

I was travelling with two other people, and we had a room with one queen and one double bed. The room was small, but clean and charming with a private bath, TV, and phone, and the rate was excellent. If you're not able or willing to climb stairs, you may wish to request a room on one of the lower floors; ours was on the top (fourth), and we didn't mind the exercise. Free parking was available (including overnight, all weekend) just a few steps away on both sides of rue St-Hubert. There is also a cute restaurant practically next door that serves early breakfast - we found Montreal does not rise early on the weekend.

It rained to beat the band Saturday afternoon, but the location on St-Hubert is also a great starting point for an auto tour of the city's sights, not far from Sherbrooke if you want to see the Olympic Village, or from Mont Royal if you want to tour the swanky heights. And Ile St-Helene is just across the Jacques Cartier Bridge by car if you want to check out the Biosphere or Habitat '67.

Hotel d L'Elysée is no-frills, great value, and perfect for the traveller who is on the go. We'd highly recommend it, and book ahead! We will be next time we visit Montreal.

Excellent value! The host was most helpful....recommended excellent restaurants, shopping, called taxis,... Even tracked us down at a nearby restaurant when a mistake in our room assignment was recognized...
Would definitely stay at this hotel again...proximity to metro, St-Denis, St-Laurent, 20 minute walk to Old Montréal,....
