My husband and I stayed at the apartment on Sicard during our little getaway in Montreal. The neighborhood was quiet (which was perfect for resting at night). The apartment was very clean and cozy and had everything we needed to prepare our meals every now and then (some meals we ate at home, some we went out to eat while exploring the city). The metro was within 10 min walk and was easy to get to different points of interest while we visited. The Olympic Park is close too, which is where we went for our morning runs and we loved running in that park. We didn't get a chance to meet the owners, since they were out of town. But they still made checking in and checking out easy and we didn't have an issue with that. We also loved how they provided a little book of everything you need during the stay - from Internet password, to check out instructions, to restaurants recommendations and other things to check out in the area. We would definitely recommend this condo to others.
Lovely and quiet location near the Botanical Garden, 15 min downtown.
