If you’re here in the winter, the hosts will also light the fireplace, adding to the cosy atmosphere.

The hosts have taken great care in decorating this apartment, filling it with bohemian-inspired decor and highlighting its beautiful, original features.

You have your own private room with this rental, within the host’s property. The house is close to one of the major streets of Montreal, but it is surprisingly quiet.

The house is full of character and the perfect place to make yourself feel at home.
Cute Ground Floor Room in the Heart of the PlateauMontréal, Québec, Canada
The hosts have taken great care in decorating this studio apartment. There are unique pieces of decor throughout, including fairy-light lit bamboo and a hanging bike. Step away from the conventional and, instead of a TV, enjoy the pull-down projector screen. Despite it being a studio, you’re lucky enough to have both a separate bathroom and bedroom here.
There’s room for two - if you want to use the hanging bike, you can, and there’s also a nearby bike-hire station. If there’s more than two of you, there’s also a sofa bed in the main living space. You’ll find yourself just a 10-minute walk from two different metro stations.
LOFT - luminous and artsy
Again, this is another perfect rental for solo travellers or visiting students. The house is only a five-minute walk from a metro stop, meaning the entire city is within easy reach. The room has a single bed, a small desk area and a window looking out onto the street. The hosts can also pick you up from the airport or train station, for a small additional cost.
You have access to the kitchen and there’s a small, 24-hour supermarket, just around the corner from the apartment. The house is also within walking distance of downtown Montreal and the Old Port.
