Dont Stay here if you need sleep
Reviewed 3 days ago

If you pay for an upgraded room, they will put you on the street where noise permeates. Our friend didnt go for the upgrade and was given a room on a higher floor with a river view. The service is spotty at best with rude night managers who prefer to argue vs solve problems. Our experience was so bad as to be remarkable enough to make us not want to visit the city of Montreal a second time.

Beautiful Hotel - amazing staff

This hotel has an amazing history and each room is beautiful and unique. The brick walls paired with modern furniture makes you feel like you just stepped into a magazine. The staff was very helpful and all speak English so there was no langue barrier.

Wonderful stay

We just returned from a long weekend in Old Montreal, staying at this beautiful boutique hotel. Location was great - walking distance to cafes, restaurants, pubs, the cathedral, and waterfront. Everyone in the hotel was nice and helpful. Room was gorgeous - we loved the brick/stone walls, the fireplace, the comfortable bed, and the fact that there was room for a couch and small tables (we booked the petite suite). The bathroom was also great - loved the rain shower and the jet tub. We had drinks in the hotel as well and enjoyed the fun music. Valet parking is available. Would 100% stay in this hotel again.

Great boutique hotel - perfect location - excellent staff

The Hotel Nelligan is our favorite place to stay in Montreal. We come to the city about 3 or 4 times a year and the hotel feels like a second home at this point. It is ideally situated in the Old Port section of the city near the ND Cathedral. There is lots of excellent shopping and restaurants and pastry shops, including the best in the city Christian Faure, a 2 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is charming and the staff is top notch. We were especially grateful this time for the help of the Romy Haas, the concierge who got us reservations at two fantastic restaurants (Joe Beef and Tiradito), which are HARD to get. It's also a short walk to the city's Chinatown. The hotel manager, Andrea was also terrific, and helped us on multiple occasions. She's both charming and efficient and focused on customer service a quality that's not always easy to find in Montreal. The hotel has a popular roof top terrace during 3 seasons of the year and the OP sector is also hopping with natives and tourist then as well so it can get a bit loud at night. Great hotel.

Completely charming

This is a beautiful small hotel right in Old Montreal. It features large rooms with brick walls, a central atrium, all the usual room amenities and even a roof top atrium (which hadn't quite opened yet during our visit).

The staff are fully bilingual and very friendly.

Beds are very comfortable and our corner room was huge ! There was a Nespresso, minibar fridge (which was stocked - we emptied it to use with our stuff) and even a table with snacks and full wine/vodka/gin bottles for extra charge of course.

Our fridge wasn't working, but a call to the front desk has a maintenance person up to fix is in a few minutes.

There is valet parking ($32/day) and a lobby restaurant for breakfast - although the meager continental offering (with stale bagels...) was ridiculously priced at $20. There are a ton of cheaper small cafes right nearby - we learned that lesson on day 2.

Will be back soon, just won't have breakfast onsite !
