How to Get There

Hotel Nelligan
106 Saint-Paul Street West
Montreal, H2Y 1Z3 Canada


Can't think why this wouldn't get top rating

A great boutique style hotel in old Montreal. Located behind Notre Dame and close to many restaurants, bars, and the fantahstic architecture /ambiance of the old town.
The rooms are spacious and very well fitted. The giant bed is the best I've slept in - anywhere in the world. The Nespresso machine is a nice touch.
Great decoration - lots of exposed brick.
Large bathrooms with quality toiletries.
Restaurant (verses) is popular - nice style and great food. Wine choice good... Though always feel expensive to a UK wallet.
Loved the hotel. The only improvement i would have wanted is a late checkout which was available beyond 1300 only for a price. (but that's the contract... So can't really complain).

Caroline was a lovely host at my latest stay at the hotel Nelligan. Beautiful boutique hotel with excellent staff. I'll definitely stay there again. There's a great bagel place across the street from the hotel and the there are art galleries all up and down the street. Great place to go in Old Montreal

Québécois Charme

If visiting Montreal, I always suggest staying in Vieux Montreal, Old Montreal. Walking the streets in this charming city quadrant transports you to any beautiful European city -- Paris in particular, given they share the same language in Quebec.

While Old Montreal offers several accommodation choices, the Hotel Nelligan on Rue Saint Paul exudes charm, sophistication and personality -- all for a price much more affordable than one would think upon entering this 160 year-old edifice.

The hotel offers 44 rooms and 59 suites. We booked a standard room that was very spacious and comfortable, compared to your standard accoms in a Parisian hotel. Beautiful exposed brick walls adorn the room and bathroom, which is probably as big as some Parisian hotel rooms! A huge walk-in rain-head shower adds to the comfort of the accommodations.

The lobby boasts the feel of an antique library. It sits adjacent to Versus, the hotel's in-house restaurant, where you can enjoy a meal all day long, or enjoy a glass of fine French (or Canadian) wine in the lobby library environs. A second restaurant, Boeuf, can be accessed at the other end of the hotel.

Hotel Nelligan is truly one of the nicest hotels in which I've stayed in recent years, and is worth a visit on your next trip to Montreal, a city I find to be the closest thing to European charm in North America.
