My boyfriend and I visited Montreal for our first time and stayed at Janique's charming and clean apartment. It was perfect for us because it was located off a street with a ton of bars, coffee shops, boulangeries and markets (with fresh veggies, meats and cheeses). If you like to visit a city and experience it like a local then I suggest this place. We had a car, which was useful, but you can use the bixi bikes (located conveniently at the end of the street) or other public transportation. Next time I am in Montreal, I will see if Janique's apt is available.
