Montréal is the largest city in Canada’s Québec province. It’s set on an island in the Saint Lawrence River and named after Mt. Royal, the triple-peaked hill at its heart. Its boroughs, many of which were once independent cities, include neighbourhoods ranging from cobblestoned, French colonial Vieux-Montréal – with the Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica at its centre – to bohemian Plateau.

Visited Montreal and stayed in Chateau Versailles. Friends had recommended this hotel as they have stay here many, many times. Very reasonable rates for such a good hotel. Very good service, very clean rooms and great breakfast included. It is a beautiful, historic hotel. Would recommend staying here. We will be back.
The best of Montreal is but five minutes walk to the metro, a bus outside your door or, as one guest did, a quick hail of a taxi just has he stepped to the sidewalk.
The room we had was a queen and had a closet to put our bags away, making it much larger than needed. The bathroom was spotless and all white marble. The water gave hot a new meaning. The complimentary breakfast is worth it for the great coffee and chocolate croissants.
The location is excellent, just a few blocks from the Montreal Museum of Fine Art, McGill University, Concordia University’s downtown campus, and the Rue Sainte-Catherine shopping artery in Centre-Ville. The closest Metro Station, two blocks distant, is Guy-Concordia.
The best quality of Hotel Chateau Versailles, however, is its friendly and attentive staff. My first trip to Montreal would not have been the unqualified success that it was — it was a father-and-daughter weekend in a city neither of us had seen before — without the extensive advice offered freely by several members of the reception desk staff.
I will give Chateau Versailles top consideration for my next visit to Montreal. I’d be glad to return to this lovely lodging.
Let’s get one thing out of the way, however: It’s not for people with weak knees. The hotel is on several floors of the former mansions and there are no elevators. There is only a network of staircases, both broad and narrow. If you cannot handle that, this is not the hotel for you. Even the lobby is reached by walking up a set out tall outside stairs.
But if stairs charm you, then Chateau Versailles is an excellent choice.
It offers lovely rooms. The rooms with two queen beds are in the back of the hotel, in a more modern addition. But I compared the furnishings to one of the front rooms; the overall quality was identical. The front rooms just have more Victorian architectural features. Our room featured two lovely reading chairs — we used those chairs for, yes, reading, but also for talking, listening to music, watching a little TV. The pair of queen beds were luxurious to sleep in, and there was plenty of space around the beds. A nice desk and a bureau completed the furnishings, along with a table between the two chairs. The TV has all the ports in back for your streaming media box or gaming box, if you travel with those items.
The ensuite bathroom in our room (#303) was a bit small, but not tiny. It had an excellent full-length shelf for toiletries. I was annoyed that the towel rack was in the nicely tiled shower, as I had to remove the towels before taking a shower. Hot water was plentiful and water pressure was excellent.
The room also had a good-sized closet and plenty of clothes hangers. Two windows offered good ventilation. With the heat on in the winter, the room grew just a bit stuffy. Opening the windows on the opposite walls cleared the air and we quickly closed them.
The continental breakfast featured fruit, yoghurt, raisins, apricots, bagels, croissants, other pastries, cheeses, and an assortment of cereals, juices, tea, and coffee. The breakfast room is quite comfortable and did not have the blaring television many hotels have instituted.

The building is so unassuming, but wait until you get inside. We arrived with a lot of luggage and the doormen quickly helped us get inside out of the cold. The check-in process was quick and the agent convinced us to upgrade to a Gold room on the basis that it was $100 extra per night, while paying for breakfast would be $70. I suspect this works with a lot of guests.
There are very few benefits for Accor Platinum guests – while drink vouchers were given and there was water in the room, that’s where it ends. I really wish Accor would fix their programme and standardise the loyalty benefits across all of their properties and regions.
The room itself was wonderful – a decent size and I appreciated the recent renovations and modern design. The bed was big and pillow comfortable. The bathroom was great and included a big bath and separate shower. The LeLabo bath products are ace.
Being in a Gold room gave as access to the Fairmont Gold Lounge on the 21st floor which serves breakfast and then light snacks in the evening. We were frequent visitors! The staff were great and knew our names by the second visit.
We had a dinner at Roselys which was fantastic. Food and service were both excellent.
The gym and pool are worth a special mention – one of the best hotel gyms I’ve ever used. An inviting space with plenty of equipment and friendly staff.
The hotel is attached to the Montreal Central train station by lift. Even with a mountain of luggage it was easy getting to the train.
Room: We had a junior suite. Good sized living area with a couch, chair, a desk, and a large cabinet housing a minibar and a coffee set up. Bedroom had a king size mattress which was really comfortable. Also had a smallish full bath adjacent to the bedroom and a half bath off the living area. Room was very clean and well maintained. We had a large screen TV in each room.
Location: Superb location in downtown Montreal. There was direct access to the underground and there was a nice, upscale food court (several notches above the usual mall food court) right next to the hotel entrance. We also walked to the Bell Centre to watch the Canadien’s play, and we were similarly within walking distance to the main shopping areas and lots of restaurants.
Food : Ate a few times in the restaurant. Outstanding breakfast buffet with cooked to order omelettes, and decent French pastries (better than the usual buffet pastries). Dinner menu offered was what I might call, higher end bar food. Overall quality and service was very good and up to Fairmont standards. There is also a bar that opens after 5 – we went a few times before going to bed and it was buzzing and lively. Lobby also had a terrific coffee bar and a marketplace with lots of food options.
Amenities: outstanding 24 hour gym with an indoor pool, all kinds of free weights and machines, and lots of cardio equipment. They had a big room full of cycles, looks like they offered regular classes. On Valentines day (not sure if this is done regularly), there was a DJ playing music all afternoon in the lobby which created a festive vibe.
Service: outstanding and courteous, consistent with what I would expect from a Fairmont.

Great room (mine had it’s own bathroom)…wonderful location (easy to walk to Gay Village and Old Montreal)…fabulous breakfast (bacon & eggs, fresh fruit, homemade yogurt, a really tasty breakfast sandwich, juices and coffee!)…but best of all …amazing owners, as they are caring, helpful and a joy to talk to.
The B&B is easy to find and right next to gay village. Superb breakfast provided. Rooms are comfortable although not large – but no complaints from us. We liked Montreal but the gay village is a bit seedy and not really a great place to find good restaurants.
Philippe & Nicolas are amazing hosts and I hope that Ron and I will return again. Let me tell you the breakfast every morning was spectacular. These boys know how to cook! Check in was an absolute breeze. Philippe spent the time Giving us various ideas on what to do around Montreal. He gave us a map and a tour guide book.
The bed-and-breakfast is in the perfect location steps away from The gay village downtown Montreal. Please don’t think that you have to be gay to stay here! We met other couples around the breakfast table that were straight. This is the most suitable environment for anybody who really wants the Montreal experience. Beaudry Metro station Is literally steps away and very easy to get to you.
I highly recommend that you stay here than any other bed-and-breakfast in town because it certainly the best in my opinion.
The location was ideal too just off the main street running through the gay village with many bars and restaurants but also close enough to a subway station for easy connections downtown.
The location is within the Gay Village and only a couple of blocks away from the Beaudry metro station, so it’s commutable from the airport and is accessible to other points in Montreal.
We had a room with a private bathroom, which we loved. It was on the first floor by the kitchen, which wasn’t bad since there was still privacy to the daily breakfast. There was a small bureau in the room and a collapsible table. The restroom was small, but it wasn’t shared. The rooms on the second floor share a bathroom, as well as a common area.
The setting is updated and pleasant, and the rooms are comparable to other more expensive hotels. Rooms with either private or shared bathrooms are available. There are two bathrooms available for those three rooms, where the bathrooms are shared, so the bathrooms are clean and there is usually no waiting in one or the other of the two bathrooms.
Three rooms have private bathrooms. Each room has its own contemporary air conditioner/heater which is electronically climate controlled to the needs of the guest. The hosts are friendly, and they serve a most outstanding breakfast, which is included in the reasonable price of the stay.
Sharing breakfast with other friendly guests from Europe, the US, and Canada is always an interesting experience! Outside terraces add to the comfortable ambiance. Free wifi and even a computer to use is available. Assistance is offered by the host in giving directions to get around Montreal and in giving suggestions for sightseeing. The B & B is only one short block from a subway station, and subways are a fast, efficient way of getting around Montreal.
The B & B is located in the heart of the gay village, which is very friendly and inclusive for all travelers. Travelers by car will be pleased to see that secured, inside parking is available for only $10 per night within the site of the B & B. The B & B is only a half block away from Ste Catherine’s, a major commercial street converted to a pedestrian mall with even restaurant patios stretching out into the edge of the street. Ste Catherine’s is pedestrian for the entire summer. What else could you want in comfort and convenience in a city as beautiful and interesting as Montreal? Book your rooms early, as this is the number one rated B & B in Montreal.

4. Maison Des Jardins B&B 4* – LGBT Friendly Hotels Montréal
Located in the Gay Village of Montreal, Maison Des Jardins B & B is 7 minutes’ walk from Beaudry Metro Station. It offers air-conditioned rooms.
A flat-screen TV is included in each room. Some rooms have a seating area to relax in after a busy day. A garden-terrace and outdoor hot tub are available for guests. Rooms are fitted with a private or shared bathroom.
You will find a shared kitchen at the property.
Latin Quarter is 900 m from Maison Des Jardins B & B, while University of Quebec in Montreal UQAM is 900 m away. Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport is 17 km from the property.
The building appears to be a small apartment building that has been converted into a guest house. Typical Montreal construction with outside stairs.
They have parking for one vehicle – staff were very helpful in getting my rather large vehicle into and out of the garage. There are gates at the street so parking was fully secure.
The room was pleasant, if a touch small. Kitchenette and seating area and a private bath. Spotlessly clean and easy to access without disturbing the other guests. I was able to see some of the other rooms while there and all were quite suitable.
Breakfast is beside the kitchen. There’s an assortment of pastries and nibbles, and the main course is cooked to order. A nice way to start the day – good food and the pleasant company of the owners and other lodgers.
The resident dog is bonus – a total sweetheart.
We loved our stay at this small but lovely b&b. Would have no hesitation in recommending this place. We received a lovely warm welcome from Robert , Luc & their 2 dogs, and of course the amiable Stephane. This b&b is not in old Montreal but that is fine as everything is walking distance, and the b&b is situated in a very nice part of town.
Room was clean and tidy and small but had everything we needed. We had to share a bathroom it was along the corridor and near the kitchen. If privacy is an issue for you, then this might be a problem. Make sure you book an ensuite room. Although they are so nice it’s like home from home. Also if you don’t like animals or dogs this might not be your kind of place. For our part we were very happy to pet the dogs and have them around they were kind and friendly.
Parking is on the street and available in the parking at the back. We managed to find a parking spot on the street with the help of Robert.
Breakfast was delicious both mornings and Stephane was always happy to make different things. Plenty of choice and big portions.
Stephane is very helpful with advice on local off the beaten path restaurants, bars, coffee places. He advised us on a great urban walk which took in a number of lovely places. Definitely made our visit interesting.
Would recommend a stay here and we would love to come back and stay if we go to Montreal again.

5. Loft Hotel Montreal 4* – Gay Friendly Hotels Montreal
Located in downtown Montreal, Loft Hotel Montreal is one of the city’s last remaining Art Deco landmarks. The boutique hotel features fully furnished loft suites.
Each suite at The Loft Hotel features spacious layouts with hardwood floors and high ceilings. All lofts have a living area with modern furniture and a fully equipped kitchen. Media entertainment includes free WiFi and a 40-inch flat-screen TV.
More than a Hotel- Better than a Hotel ! LUXURY FOR YOUR LIFESTYLE. A stunning Montreal landmark, Le Loft Hotel combines fascinating architectural history with modern design and stylish amenities in the heart of downtown Montreal.
Located near the famous Latin Quarter on beautiful Terrace St-Denis Street, guests of Le Loft Hotel will enjoy world-class service, luxurious rooms and some of the best panoramic vistas of Montreal the city has to offer. Well-appointed and fully equipped lofts, Le Loft Hotel offers the ideal solution for both short and long-term accommodation in Montreal.
I thoroughly enjoyed this hotel, especially for the price. I think this is a converted industrial building, and the rooms are immense and have a great industrial meets luxury loft feel. Stayed in two of then as I went through town and both were unique. The wonderful wood floors do transmit footfalls, so given other reviews, I think the best thing is to plan to be in socks or slippers or barefoot. Having said that, the place was impeccably clean so that made it a joy to go barefoot on the hardwood. If you are a really light sleeper I could see being annoyed about footfalls above, but honestly, I only heard them once.
There were also some very minor maintenance issue such as a chip on the vanity in the bathroom, and a sagging black out curtain, but nothing that bothered me.
Finally, this hotel is in the Latin Quarter and on St Denis, an incredible street with probably hundreds of restaurants within walking distance, and also one block away from the Metro, and close to the gay Village. Great location.
The apartments at the loft hotel are really huge and luxurious. The location is great for restaurants and nightlife and is a short walk (10mins) to the gay village. The parking is extra $20 a day but it’s on site and that’s cheap for Montreal. I’d highly recommend it.
The location is fantastic for exploring the Montréal food scene in particular. The rooms are enormous, truly loft like – bright, spacious and with funky decor. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept very well. The rooms are quiet, with little noise from inside or the street. The full kitchen was a surprise and there is plenty of room to store your things.
The shower has good pressure and the toiletries are nice. We loved that you could open the window and get some fresh air. The staff are friendly and helpful too. While we did not take advantage of it, the hotel also offers a free continental breakfast which looked pretty good.
1) The staff are both friendly and helpful.
2) The location is incredibly convenient as the hotel is just off St Denis street which has a highly active bar / nightlife scene
3) The rooms are INCREDIBLE. They are huge and immaculately maintained.
4) There is a full service kitchen in the room
5) There is a kitchenette downstairs which has access to tea and coffee.
It was extremely spacious, with a full kitchen and six person dining table. There was a spacious entrance, a full closet, a large bathroom (with a huge shower), living area, and sleeping area.
The location of the hotel is perfect! It was about a 5 minute walk from Rue St. Catherine, and a 10-15 minute walk to ‘Old Montreal’ and the Port.
The breakfast was tasty (hard boiled eggs, pastries, yogurt, juices, cereals, etc.). We really enjoyed our stay.
The only slight downside to the room was that the air conditioning unit was a little loud over the bed….but some might enjoy the white noise:)
