We did like the location, feel and actual apartment we stayed in at Le Qube, and we did book through AirBnB. However, I feel for the price, you could do better-- and I wish they were more communicative about the problems that they had encountered to prep the guests for their visit. I did write a review through Airbnb, and I will relay the content through there, as well as add pictures to describe what happened. Per my Airbnb review: "The location is wonderful, apartment is a good crash pad... However, the A/C was not working as advertised, and they were aware of the issue beforehand due to a fire. Since A/C was essential during a hot summer, they were nice enough to bring a fan, however, they DID know about the issue beforehand and they could have warned us so we could have made alternate arrangements, or they could have offered more for the inconvenience. They had limited amenities-- no hand soap, for instance, though there was dish washing soap, and shower gel. While they were nice, and somewhat timely, it was difficult to reach them if it was urgent (my calls usually went to voicemail.) Some doors were not working (entrance) or they were hard to open. They should be able to keep their properties updated better, as well as updating their potential guests about issues that may arise. While the location was great, given the inconvenience, I would hesitate in rebooking unless they were extremely specific about updates re: amenities." So let me update with what happened: We booked this apartment due to the location, and the amenities. Due to medical conditions, I tend to run unreasonably hot and therefore, I usually book places that have air conditioning. We booked it, given that the apartment looked nice and featured air conditioning. As soon as we stepped into the unit, there was no "welcome booklet" provided from the company (we had to look downstairs in the lobby for their quick check in sheet), as well as the A/C unit itself was not working. We quickly told them this, and they were nice enough to send a maintenance man over the next day. The maintenance man came over and then told us he did not know how to fix it, after trying a couple solutions. After letting them know about the result, they went out of their way to message us, telling us that the problem was connected to something that they knew about beforehand. Yes, I understand a fire is out of your control, but this is your property. If you knew it would affect the units, why wouldn't you remedy this by providing this information to guests that you are renting the units out to, or offering to place them in a different location? I don't think that's unreasonable, and most places providing service of that caliber would think of solutions. They did provide us with a fan, which I noted in my original review-- was great on them. However, it wasn't enough to provide us with a comfortable sleep. I find it funny that they kept citing outside temperatures and that we should be able to sleep comfortably. Unfortunately, even with the windows open, apartments can be well isolated and since there is no wind, it can still cause apartments to be hot. With the fan on, while they cited 18 C temperatures, it was, in fact (due to their wall units and the temperatures we had seen) actually 24 - 26 C consistently in the apartment. None of the support people were even on property as this is a self-serviced apartment, so I believe they are just trying to save face. After reading their airbnb review (saying I was "unfair and trying to demand more money even though so and so") I would never stay here again. Despite their paltry refund of 10% and a complimentary night stay-- why would I stay at a place that knew about the problems, and then didn't try to remedy them beforehand? And then, additionally, why would I stay after they wrote me a bad review with false information? This would have been a 2-3 star review due to excellent location and cleanliness. But their service is severely lacking. You could do better.…
This is our 2nd time staying at leQube apartments although this time it was the ones on St Denis. Enjoyed it again with the apartment in a really great area with lots of shops/restaurants to choose from. We had a bigger apartment this time which was better. Apart from the steep climb up the rooms were newly renovated and had everything we needed. Definitely recommend.
Great location. Comfortable room with kitchen. Just need to buy groceries before you arrive, especially coffee because nothing opens in the morning until 11 am! Lots of good restaurants nearby. Excellent people watching.
LeQube is a excellent place to stay. We had the bedroom, bathroom and balcony room. This is exactly what we needed, the bonus was a nice lobby, rooftop hot tub and lounge area, free washer, dryer and wifi. The price is excellent for Montreal, very affordable. I paid for the LeQube parking which was right across the street (i highly recommend this option). If you want a overpriced huge hotel this may not be the option for you. However if you want excellent location, affordable, practical, clean, and very awesome room/apartment. I recommend LeQube. Thanks, JC
We stayed here while meeting up with 2 other couples who stayed in the one of the other apartments. It was the perfect set up for us. Location was great, lots of restaurants and shops nearby. The highlight was the rooftop hot tub. The shared kitchen in the lobby was a great resource. Self serve laundry was handy to dry towels after swim. Croissants and coffee in the morning was a perk! We will hopefully be back again soon. Only thing I can think of is if there were a few more hooks in the bathroom or the main entry way.
The apt. itself was large and roomy. The apartment was on the first floor. Easy access with the codes. Plenty of restaurants and little back street eateries, shopping and just the atmosphere of the area.
Our bachelor apartment room was great! The staff accommodated our request for early check-in, the room itself was well decorated/cozy/clean and the location was everything we wanted. Checking in was easy and the upstairs terrace was a cool place to hang out with a beautiful view. Correspondence with staff was also very easy considering there’s no front desk! Kitchen came equipped with everything we needed and we were delighted to find a few water bottles in the fridge when we arrived. Having wifi and an Apple TV equipped with Netflix also made our stay very enjoyable considering the weather wasn’t great during our time in Montreal. Would highly recommended LeQube to anyone looking for a cozy spot that feels like a “home away from home” while on holidays.
Check in was a breeze with the use of entry codes, the apartment was spotless. Roof terrace with jacuzzi is really awesome! The area has loads of nice restaurants (be sure to check in for smoked meat at Schwartz’s) and seems to be the hip and trendy part of town. Will def be back!
Stayed in Sept 2018 for 6 nights - apartments were lovely, clean, modern, even had smart TV with Netflix and all essentials in the kitchen. All keypad entry so no keys or reception - we had no issues with it and there was an office you could contact on email or phone if you needed. Rooftop pool and terrace was gorgeous as was lobby area. Only comment negative if anything at all is maid service for clean sheets / towel would have been great half way through with the length of our stay.
This was a great place to stay and enjoy the ambience of Montreal' Plateau. The room was spotless and well equipped. Very comfortable . There is no front desk and the lock box was hard to figure out. Written instructions would help
