not as bad as i thought
Very cheap. There was no indication of any bugs. I thoroughly checked bed/room and was no problem. For the price you pay, this is fine. I was worried that there would be hidden fees, but they charged what expedia quoted. Two showers on floor and you have your own sink . TV, fan all work.
You are not provided with towels, so bring your own.
The location is great for walking/exploring Montreal, and it's close to the subway and Greyhound station. Late check-in was no problem.
Room advertised as about $50/night came to $70 in total (tax + credit card fee, etc.). Very no frills. No towels, had to ask for toilet paper. Booking a "private shower" means only private shower, not private toilet too. But they had a cancellation and let me have the full bathroom room.
Nothing the pictures at the web site is a big liar. The only good point I can tell is its location near downtown.
All! The bedrooms are horrible you can not use the roof fan because on every room sounds all night long. Rooms are dirty and this hotel did not provide even soap or towels in your room, you have to bring all your personal stuff to stay there and be prepared to share showers and toilettes with other guests. This is a really expensive hostel not a hotel. I will not give it not even 1 star.
Only the location.
Everything,not comfortable,dirty washroom,small room for couple,no room for luggage,bed service,dirty towels,noisy from outside,very old furnitures if there is any,small bed for couple,the staff dose not speak english,not welcoming,the smell is terrible,the ceilling ventilator makes a terrible noise so you can't use it.
booked a room with a private shower but was not given one on check in. staff very difficult to deal with but did get a room with a shower in the end.if paying by credit card they will add another ten percent to the bill which is not stated on the website. rooms and beds smelled a bit. we had no experience with bed bugs as many others have but we did find a mouse trap under the bed. the location is ok if you want to be near the centre of montreal but it will be very noisy at night and in summer you need the windows open because there is no form of cooling unless you are lucky enough to get a room with a working fan.
Nothing, everything was bad, especially air conditioning. There was shared bathroom and toilet, dirty bed and mattresses. I leave there before the end of my lease.
There was nothing redeemable of this location.
The hotel was filthy, in poor repair, with very unfortunate clientele, and only three washrooms for over 30 bedrooms.
Very centrally located just one block from the main busstation
Bar in the basement with loud music late, showers on 1st floor out of order
Used syrettes in my room.
Yes was good stay. More like a hostel with private rooms than hotel.
i liked only location pretty centrally
smelly, very old fashion,
With a stay at Hotel Arena Palace Montreal in Montreal (Gay Village), you'll be steps from Sainte-Catherine Street and 5 minutes by foot from St. Denis Theatre. The front desk is staffed during limited hours.
