A unique apartment for 6 to 8 people, situated on the flanks of Mount Royal in the heart of the Golden Square Mile of Downtown Montreal
An architectural jewel of hardwood floors, 12-foot high ceilings, wall and crown mouldings, two fireplaces, 8-foot high shuttered windows and very large rooms furnished with a combination of modern and antique furniture and decorated with original pieces of art, this apartment truly gives visitors a taste of Montreal’s past.
With one large bedroom with a double bed, and a second extremely large bedroom with 2 Queen size beds – all with new high quality mattresses, the apartment can comfortably accommodate 6 people, or a couple with children. A sofa bed can be used for two more people if so desired.
The apartment also has a brand new full bathroom and a second powder room, and a totally new kitchen with stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher and stove with a ceramic cooktop.
The apartment has a 40” flat screen television set, television cable, wireless internet access and a telephone landline for unlimited local calls. A toddler playpen is available for a small extra fee.
And don’t worry, although the flat is in the heart of Downtown Montreal, the twenty inch thick walls keep the noise outside and create a feeling of quiet and serenity inside.
No need for a car, the apartment is a 10-minute walk from Central Station and the Airport bus stop in front of the Fairmount Queen Elizabeth Hotel, seconds away from the Peel Metro station and bus lines, and a minute away from a Bixi bike rental station.
Above all, it is walking distance from everything of interest in Montreal.
