This was the first time I rent an apartment in Montreal. I have been to Montreal many times before but always stayed in hotels. This time I spent a whole month with a friend. The location is reasonable, a few metro stations from downtown but I rented a car so this was not an issue. The owner is very nice and he lived in the basement of the same house so he was very accessible. The not so good part is the smell of the house and that the house was very dirty. We hired a cleaning lady to clean it but there is a limit to what can be done. I do not think I will rent the same apartment again.
