The Studios du Quartier Latin (2024 rue Saint-Hubert) have something of a studenty feel, but the apartments are en-suite and come with kitchenettes, internet and cable TV. Abri du Voyageur (9 rue Sainte-Catherine Ouest) uses the character of the building to excellent effect, and each room houses part of the owner’s art collection. B&B Le Cartier (1219 rue Cartier) is a good, homely bet too – the furnishing is of higher quality than it needs to be for the price.

Le Dauphin (1025 rue de Bleury) is exceptionally good value; the rooms are big, bathrooms have heated floors and large walk in showers, whilst all manner of extras – including a free computer in the room – are thrown in. Le Relais Lyonnais (1595 rue Saint-Denis) is a real looker, with dark woods, exposed brick walls and leather chairs complimented by luxury amenities such as bathrobes. Auberge Bonaparte (443 rue St-Francois-Xavier) is a good option in the old part of town – most rooms have whirlpool baths, a classic sense of style and huge king beds.

Best hotels in Montreal, Canada | Luxury hotels ($$$ to $$$$$)

Montreal does small hotels with flair very well. Le Petit (168 rue St-Paul Ouest, $$$) is a classic example, with exposed brick and stone walls, furniture straight from the hip lifestyle magazines and all the mod cons with a flourish. The Nelligan (106 rue Saint-Paul Ouest, $$$) is slightly bigger, oozing timelessness although all the technology is there. The rooms feel like the sort of place a great author would hunker down in. For facilities, the gigantic studios, full kitchens and luxury residential feel at Le Square Phillips Hotel and Suites (1193 Place Phillips, $$$) are the way to go.

The W (901 Square Victoria, $$$$$) isn’t nearly as far up its own backside as its stablemates in the W chain, but it still has swanky swagger and supercool furnishings. Best in town is the gloriously lavish Le St-James (55 rue Saint-Jacques, $$$$), which combines bathrooms drenched in marble with genuinely striking individuality. One room might have a leopardskin carpet, the next will look like a miniature Italianate palace. Hotel Le Germain (205 Rue Mansfield, $$$$) is less exciting, but is a great high end option with far more panache than your average business hotel.
