We stayed right in Old Montreal- it was wonderful- the food was great. Everyone was so kind and spoke both English and French.

If you ever have a few minutes to spare, take the time to walk the old cobbled streets of Old Montreal. You'll be glad you did.

Nice part of Montréal to have a gentle stroll and take in the historic part of town. Architecture is simply beautiful and the vibe was nice. I went in the evening which was ‘fresh’ but quiet. Loved the Basilica and overall nice place to be

A total different point of view of Montreal. We loved the environment, some specials stores to browse and good restaurants to taste. We enjoined a lot to spend the all afternoon-there. Definitely would return. Recommended if you are spending few days in the city.

This relatively small section of Montreal gives a glimpse into the past of this historic city. Although not as quaint and European as Old Quebec City, you can stroll the cobblestone streets and enjoy the numerous shops, restaurants and cafes.
