"The Saint Sulpice Montreal - Wonderful location, but dated bathroom & poor wifi lead to an underwhelming experience"
While the Saint-Sulpice Hotel has an amazing (arguably unbeatable) location in the heart of Old Montreal (neighboring the Notre-Dame Basilica), the hotel has a couple key shortcomings that makes it fall short of an overall memorable/positive experience. The hotel itself is literally steps away from one of the main streets (Rue Saint Paul) in historic Old Montreal, and conveniently located 3 short blocks from the Place-d'Armes metro station. We stayed in a deluxe suite (FYI the hotel has 3 main room types: starting with Superior (smallest), Deluxe, and Executive) which featured a nicely spacious main living room area (equipped with small kitchenette/wet bar - including mini fridge, Nespresso machine, utensils, etc.) with a separate (small) bedroom. No complaints in these areas. However, the main issue (negative) I had with the room itself was the bathroom - which was really showing it's age; in particular the toilet seat in our room was peeling/cracking right on the front part (see photo attached) causing a less than pleasant (gross) yellow discoloration/mark. The shower (stand up/walk in) area also had a dated tile surround (think gym/locked room shower) and poor lightning, plus the roof was peeling off/cracking also. Another downside was the shallow sink, making it very easy to splash water all over/on the counter - which there wasn't much of, lacking space to put toiletries, etc. Sadly, if I had to summarize the bathroom in our room, I would have to call it dated and dingy (obviously not the words you want to hear/see about a place you are staying/living in). Another notable negative was the poor wifi during our stay - which was dreadfully slow, even for simple (non-intensive) browsing. Luckily, we weren't doing/requiring any important business/work type things; I could not say I would be confident in having a speedy/reliable connection if needed, based on our experience. Due to these two key negatives, I cannot say that I would recommend the Saint-Sulpice Hotel to others. If I/we return to Montreal again in the future, I have to say that I would try another hotel - instead of the Saint-Sulpice - in hopes of a better overall hotel stay/experience. ** If this review was helpful to you in your travel planning, please take a quick second to hit the 'THANKS' yes review was helpful button.

"In a 5 week trip - this was the best place we stayed !!"
These guys were fantastic. The room was spacious allowing us to prepare meals when we wanted to. It was clean and well laid out. Located in the heart of the city right behind the old/main church - great for walks around the old quarter. While we were there the staff were very helpful in providing local advice and suggestions When we left we forgot some important items in the room and the concierge staff went above and beyond to get them shipped on to our next hotel.
"Fabulous Hotel, Great Location, Reasonable Price!"
If you want the quintessential Montreal experience, this is your hotel! It's right in Old Port, cozy, boutique-style, but modern enough for comfort. Excellent staff! Great food, and very clean. A great overall experience!
"Great location with a few shortcomings, probably 3 1/2 stars"
Le Saint-Sulpice was our choice based largely on its location in old town Montreal, especially given our interest in observing the new years fireworks. The location was excellent and we were well pleased with the front desk and concierge staff. The rooms were ample, not large and showing some evidence of their age. Unfortunately the cleaning was not up to scratch, as was the experience of other reviewers. The Murphy bed was already down on our arrival but under the bed were old wrappers and water bottles which had been left by a past guest. This leads one to question other roles undertaken by the cleaners. The turndown service was good although we would have loved for the weather advice cards left to have said something other than 30 degrees below zero. Not much that Le Saint-Sulpice could do about that. We did not try the restaurant although the large number of excellent restaurants within a 2 minute walk would lead you to think there would be better options. The location was great for the new years fireworks and the subway and there were coffee shops and convenience stores nearby. If you are stepping outside of the conventional bigger names in Montreal this is a worthwhile considerations, especially when the location is taken into account.
"What a great find!"
We went to Montreal for Thanksgiving and stayed here. What a lovely hotel, fantastic location, helpful, caring staff, and quite affordable given what we got. I can’t imagine how lovely it would be to be there in the summer. We highly recommend it.
