Le Petit Hôtel

168 rue St-Paul Ouest, Montréal, Québec H2Y 1Z7, Canada

Joanne Latimer

The hip little sister of the Auberge du Vieux Port, this is a chic nook with exposed stone walls that contrast the bright, contemporary art.

room

You’d never think so from the street view, but the rooms are ample—with king-size beds, bamboo floors, desks, and connectivity panels and other electronic gadgets.

YOU SHOULD KNOW Street noise can spill into the room at the front, overlooking rue St-Paul. Hope that doesn't bother you.

bathroom

Do yourself a favor and come to terms with the fact that none of the rooms have bathtubs. There are large, modern, glass showers with multi-jet massage heads. As a consolation, there are high-end Elchim hair dryers.

lobby

Long, narrow, and intimate, the lobby is instantly personal. Check-in is just a few feet from the front door, right off the sidewalk. Exposed stone walls showcase the dramatic contemporary sculpture.

dining

A full breakfast is included in the room rate, served at the lobby’s back dining area.

The coffee bar is 24/7, for international arrivals.

LOCATION

Getting Around

You can walk everywhere. Don’t rent a car. There’s very little parking in Old Montreal, where the streets are narrow and confusing. However, taxis and Ubers know the area well. Also, the Square Victoria metro is a 5 to 10-minute walk from the hotel. For three seasons of the year, there are two bicycles guests can borrow--but only two.

Restaurants

For famous pastries and a light lunch, you can’t beat the homemade delicacies at Maison Christian Faure (7-minute walk) and the celebrity haunt Olive et Gourmando (3-minute walk) across the street. Yes, that’s a line-up on the sidewalk, for good reason (it's really good).

Bars

The casual watering hole Pub St-Paul (7-minute stumble) is an easy choice, as is Pub BreWskey (15-minute walk), with their 12 rotating tap lines and local microbreweries.

WHY WE LIKE IT

The intimate scale of this hotels makes it a natural choice for couples, yet guests have access to all the gear to make a family function. The artsy vibe is young and fresh, with a cozy lobby culture. Think counter coffee bar with baked treats and healthy granola options. Tub chairs and rough wood tables play nicely beside the exposed stone walls.
