Travel Info – where we stayed, how we got about, that sort of stuff;
Where we stayed – our Airbnb was a small studio in the heart right
between Mile End and Le Plateau Mont Royal. It was small, but had everything we
needed. And cost us £25 a night too.The only problem we found was it is was a basement flat,it was a little noisy at going to work time! And the wifi was super spotty. To
the point we had to pop to a café to call our cab on the last day!
though was pretty cool and one I would really recommend to stay in if you’re in Montreal. It was
close-ish to the underground stations (Laurier and Mont Royal were our closest)
and had loads of bus connections with everywhere in the city we seemed to be
How we got about – We got to Montreal on Via Rail, and took and Uber from the
train station which cost $17 and then again to the bus station for $16. Traveling about during our stay. We bought a 3
day travel pass for $19 each. It worked on the trains and the buses and meant we could hop on and off them as we pleased and we most
certainly got our monies worth as we used public transport for everything.
Some of our favourite places we ate and drank – Once again, Jim did a lot of research into where to go, but we also use the MTL Blog to find out about coll places to visit too. Some of our favourites were Faberge for breakfast. La Distillerie and Bar le Lab for cocktails. Chez Simone for french cool and Scwartz deli for a classic Quebec Smoked Meat.
