Fresh fruit and espresso coffee for breakfast, immaculately kept rooms with lovely canadian art on the walls, a location that can't be bettered for the metro (Berri-UQAM) and walking to and fro to cheap and cheerful restaurants and pubs -- and Philippe, who is a fountain of knowledge about Montreal. He has lived in France, Austria and California, so he is fluent in other cultures and languages. He loves his Montreal neighbourhood and makes guests very welcome indeed. He has a background in IT, so the free wifi works brilliantly and if you need anything printed off (even a map printout to get you to your next bus stop), it's no trouble to Philippe. He will also put your travel-weary clothes through the washer and dryer. I had a room with a shared bathroom but never bumped into anyone else in the hallway and never had to queue! Heartily recommended.
