Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Xixieme Siecle
Not disappointed, just not impressed.from A TripAdvisor Member
Value for the money cannot be denied. This was certainly superior to any motel accommodation for a similar price. By no means did we feel that we overpaid and we aren't complaining about that at all. However, the pictures imply a level of finish and style that simply isn't there with this hotel.
Breakfast was across the street at Eggspectations. That was good. I'd recommend attending the 11am Mass at Notre Dame. The choir and organ are absolutely fantastic. (Reminder not to take pictures during the service. The woman in front of us was doing that and was warned off of that. )
Sandy at the Front Desk of the hotel was VERY helpful and had excellent dining suggestions. The staff during the day we found not as knowledgeable.
Chez L'Epicier - Old Montreal, not a long walk, very nice, neighbourhood atmosphere. Quality food, well prepared and presented. ($130)
Holders - West Old Montreal, convenient to Metro, bistro fare. Less expensive than L'Epicier. We need to eat quickly because we had an 8pm show to catch. Service was delivered with a smile. ($80)
Le Jardin Nelson - Place Jacques Cartier. Yes - you're right in the heart of touristown but they have a pleasant atmosphere for lunch and our serveuse (Elyse) was very friendly and helpful. ($70)
St-Denis - We spent a day on St-Denis, shopping and sitting in cafes. Time well wasted, as they say! Excellent coffee at La Brulerie (there might be more to the name...).
You'll need reservations for the better restaurants. Sandy at the Front desk was very helpful in getting us in to the first two places mentioned above. Also enjoyable for late night drinks is Crescent Street (it's party time on a Saturday night!) - if you enjoy live music, there are bands everywhere!
19th Century charm plus 21st Century stylefrom buckislove
Charming Hotelfrom lucawoolf
The style of the rooms is neo-classical / post-colonial, with high ceilings and a large bed; the style is somewhat spare and it seems that more furniture could be used to decorate the interior.
The bathroom is clean and well-equipped with the requisite toiletries.
The complementary breakfast buffet was lovely, including cheese, hams, fresh croissants, and bagels.
Overall, a delightful experience; God bless the concierge!
IT is nicefrom trip2000
Fantastic place with atmospherefrom TravelAsia35
come back as soon as possible! Staff is excellent,more than helpful and
taking care of us...rooms are cosy and huge, bathrooms very stylish and
the breakfast room is just great! Excellent location in Old Montreal close
to nice restaurants. We came from Europe and found a little dream place
in Montreal....we can just highly recommend this hotel!!!!
A Safe but Boring Choicefrom NYStateofMind
The staff were not warm or terribly helpful, in fact somewhat disinterested. The TV didn't work, the water had to run for 5 minutes before it became hot. I stayed here and at Saint Sulpice... it is laughable that they are listed as same category... the Sulpice is miles above XIX in every way especially as far as service.
Heater is so noisy and no respond to your concernfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Great small hotelfrom babycakes
Good Place to Stay, But Watch the Extra Costs!from A TripAdvisor Member
The staff was very courteous, the room was great, and the location in Vieux Montreal could not be beat. We ate breakfast every day at a wonderful restaurant called Eggspectation, which is just down the street.
The only thing you should NOT do is ask the hotel to do your laundry. We asked them to do one load, and they did it well. However, it was outrageously expensive, something like $50!!!!
Wonderful, but not everything I expected..from A TripAdvisor Member
It wasn't a bad experience by any account (and I would definitely recommend the hotel to others) but it wasn't the most amazing either.
Top Local Tips for Montreal
Ice Cider is delish! Everyone has pretty much heard of ice wine, but you must try the ice cider. It will run you anywhere from 10-20 CAD per glass. A bottle costs about 25-35 CAD. They sell some brands at the airport duty free shop.
Place Jacques Cartier Don't eat at any of the restaurants on Place Jacques Cartier. They are all overpriced, but considering the location you could accept this if the food was decent. We tried three places and they were all terrible! Eat elsewhere, say on Rue St Paul (the Keg is great for steaks) and have a drink or ice cream in the square.
Buying a Day Passes for the Metro Don't assume you can buy a day pass for the Metro wherever their is a Metro kiosk. They are only available at selected Metro stations. A little advanced planning will save you unnecessary cost.
