Review Summary


  • Charming decor, including exposed brick and stone walls, and massive wooden beams
  • Great location in Old Montreal
  • Seasonal rooftop terrace restaurant with stunning water views
  • On-site bistro, and lots of restaurants within walking distance
  • Some rooms have nice views of the river

  • Noisy area, especially in the summertime
  • Lack of charm in newer sections of the hotel

Bottom Line

Situated across from Le Vieux-Port, this 45-room hotel reflects the charm of Old Montreal. Its beautiful, airy rooms -- some with water views -- feature details like wood beam ceilings, exposed stone and brick walls, wrought iron beds, wood floors, and lovely bathrooms with big glass showers or soaking tubs. The larger, apartment-style "lofts" are in a separate building, and designed for long-term stays. The hotel's seasonal rooftop terrace restaurant offers phenomenal water views, and the full breakfast each morning is a perk. But because of the location near restaurants and bars, noise in the rooms may be a problem, especially during the summer months.

Across from Le Vieux-Port in Old Montreal

Map of Auberge du Vieux-Port

The well-preserved Old Montreal neighborhood might be one of the prettiest and most fascinating quarters of the city. While summers give way to lively street festivals and restaurant terraces brimming with energy, winters offer a much mellower and relaxed pace.

By simply wandering around the cobblestone streets, visitors may stumble upon something interesting, beautiful, or delicious (or all three!). While there are plenty of restaurants to choose from, visitors should beware of tourist traps offering low-quality food at outrageous prices.

As for shopping, during the summer months vendors and local artists set up shop in Place Jacques-Cartier and along city streets. The same tourist trap rule applies to these street vendors -- browse for a bit to make sure you're not getting duped.
