The most unique B&B in Montreal. Should be experienced at least once.

The space

Notice
--------
Between March 1 and October 31, inclusively, weekends must be booked for both Friday and Saturday. If the time between your enquiry and check-in date is less than 4 weeks, I may permit a booking of Friday or Saturday only, but this is at my sole discretion.

Long weekends must generally be booked for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. If booking only 2 out of the 3 days, a premium will apply for the non-booked day.

You must book a minimum of 8 guests for a weekend booking, even if less will be present.

Bachelor or Bachelorette parties generally require an additional fee (usually by increasing the number of guests by 1) if outside entertainment or guests will be present on at least one evening. This is due to the added amount of cleanup involved on a daily basis.

Location
-----------
It doesn't get any better than Old Montreal. This is the most popular destination for tourists and celebrities alike, and for good reason. It is the most attractive part of the city, rich with history and home to 3 of the top 5 restaurants in Montreal, including Canada's top rated restaurant - Toqué!

The loft is located at the corner of Rue de la Commune & Rue des Soeurs Grises, which is the western edge of Old Montreal near the Square Victoria Metro and across from Bota Bota Spa sur-l'Eau. The street view that is provided by Airbnb is approximate and is only meant to give you a general idea of what the area looks like.

The location is central yet quiet after a certain time. It is close to all the major tourist attractions - museums, art galleries, La Ronde amusement park, Montreal Casino, Formula 1 track (Circuit Gilles Villeneuve), Bota Bota Spa sur-l'Eau, Spa Scandinève, Quays of the Old Port, Montreal World Trade Centre, Palais de Congres, Notre-Dame Basilica, Montreal Science Centre, IMAX Theater, King Edward Quay, Jacques Cartier Pier, Terrace Bonsecours, Bonsecours Market, Suite 701, Montreal City Hall, bike paths, public transit, and many amazing restaurants (Toqué, Gibby's Steakhouse, Verses, Garde Manger, Le Club Chasse et Peche).

You can take public transit (a bus station and a Bixi bike station is 10 meters away), the metro (5 minute walk to nearest metro station), walk, or travel in style with a scooter rental from Montreal Scooter!

Beds
------
The unit is equipped with the following sleeping units:

1. Mezzanine Room
- Medium firm queen size futon bed (60"x80") that sleeps 2 very comfortably - bar fridge and luggage storage "en suite"

2. Curtain Room
- 4 soft individual feather beds (39"x75") that each sleep 1 very comfortably

3. Living Room
- Medium firm sofa bed (50"x75") that sleeps 1 very comfortably, or 2 comfortably

- Identical medium firm sofa bed (50"x75") that sleeps 1 very comfortably, or 2 comfortably

Please note that for groups of 13-14, 1 or both of the above beds must be shared.

- Firm couch with a useable sleeping area of 27"x62" that sleeps 1 who measures 5'2" and under comfortably, or someone up to 6'2" somewhat comfortably. I am 6'2" and I have tested this couch by sleeping on it overnight and it's ok for 1-2 nights, maybe 3-4 in a pinch. I've had a 5'8" guest sleep on it 4 nights in a row and found it very comfortable.

The sleeping units below only come into play for groups of 12-14:
4. Kitchen Mezzanine Room (not pictured)
- Queen size feather bed (60"x80") that sleeps 2 very comfortably. Luggage area "en suite"

- Soft individual feather bed (39"x75") that sleeps 1 very comfortably

Kitchen
----------
You may use the fridge to keep your fresh or leftover food. If you need to cook something, I am usually more than willing to prepare it for you! Alternatively, if you insist on preparing it yourself, I will demonstrate operation of the stove and other appliances. There are 6 tall and thin champagne glasses, 6 tall and wide champagne glasses, 8 red wine glasses, 8 white wine glasses, 8 short 8oz glasses, 9 short 12oz glasses, 12 tall 12oz glasses, 12 tall 16oz glasses, 8 martini glasses, 15 2oz shot glasses, 12 1.25 oz shot glasses, and 8 coffee/tea cups and saucers. Fine china and cutlery is provided.

Amenities
-------------
The main washroom is equipped with a refreshing rain shower that never runs out of hot water (tankless water heating system), hatbox tankless toilet and 2 sinks (1 for me, and 1 for the exclusive use of guests), and a high end washer/dryer (laundry done for you upon request).

A 2nd washroom with toilet, sink, and changing bench is for the exclusive use of guests. The toilet has its own door so that another guest may use the sink and changing bench simultaneously.

In the living room, there is a 50" Pioneer Elite Plasma screen with Bell FibeTV, Musical Fidelity sound system, B&W SCM1 wall mounted speakers, Bonzini foosball (Babyfoot) table, bar fridge with complimentary soft drinks, complimentary snack bar, dinner table, board games, 2 breakfast/bar tables, 4 bar stools, coat rack, shoe rack, 2 multipurpose white benches, and plenty of luggage storage.

You may borrow a movie from my DVD collection of every genre.

For those of you who need to do work, we also offer a work station with both wired and wireless internet, and a printer. Secure underground parking is available for $20/day. The unit is air conditioned and able to maintain a constant 22-23C depending on outside ambient conditions. Smoking is permitted on the stairwell just outside the unit.

Shared with Care
--------------------
The place is shared with me. There are curtains and sliding doors to give you visual privacy. A solid 1.75" sliding door is closed after midnight which will give you complete sound privacy from my own personal living quarters.

I currently have a maximum accommodation of 14 people but the place is capable of accommodating 15-20 for short periods of time if necessary. There are some emergency beds, blankets, and pillows that are not pictured that can be provided so everybody sleeps comfortably. Inquire about a custom package if you have a party larger than 14 for a special event or even just a normal stay.

I look forward to being your host!

Interaction with guests

My friendly personality and attention to detail will make your stay an unforgettable one. If you have any special requests, just ask and I'll try to accommodate you. I'm confident you will love your stay in the most unique loft in Montreal, which I painstakingly designed and hand built from scratch over a period of 18 months. You will not find another unit with this attention to detail anywhere in Montreal. Seeing is believing, and I invite you to see for yourself!

I interact with guests as much or as little as the guests feel comfortable with.

Had a blast staying at Jerome's place. The hospitality was everything we had hoped for. Jerome was a great host and took great care of us. It was an awesome experience, and if we ever come back to Montreal, we would stay there again. Thanks Jerome!

This spot is ideal for bachelor parties, not bachelorettes as it is a shard space. Jerome has customers and workers walking around both during the day and at night and it was alarming to both me and my 12 girlfriends. We were also unaware of a cleaning fee until we arrived (our group was 12) so not over the limit to charge an extra fee. After Jerome verbally harassed myself, and three of my friends we paid him an extra $60 to cover parking and $20 for cleaning. One of my girlfriends left her pillow, and went back to pick it up ten minutes after we left; and he refused her entry. Overall, we had a good time because we were a great group of girls, but i do not recommend this location if your like privacy and being respected by your host.

Response from Jerome:
Welcome to Julie's world, where facts are conveniently changed to escape personal responsibility and accountability. Julie was well aware that she booked a shared space. No customer ever set foot in the main space. My employees and myself even made an extra effort to give her group more privacy than we would during a Bachelor party, but nothing is good enough for Princess Julie. Julie was also well aware of the cleaning fee 2.5 months in advance of her check-in (Jun5 is when she booked it), acknowledged it again Aug22 (3 days before check-in), and promised to pay upon arrival. Upon arrival on Aug25, she did not have payment but promised she would get it later that night. When she still did not pay the next day (Aug26), a friendly reminder was texted to her about her $170 balance, upon which she apologized and immediately paid $60 (not $80 as she claimed, her memory being clouded due to being intoxicated the entire weekend) and promised to pay the balance of $110 later that night. Several of her group stayed up until 7am, causing 4 noise complaints throughout the night despite promising to respect the neighbours after midnight. Despite the noise complaints, nothing was damaged and so I was willing to let that all go as long as they paid up and left peacefully. However, at checkout, three of her girlfriends decided the group was not going pay and Julie immediately changed her tone, playing the victim card like the cry-baby she is and told me to take it up with Airbnb, which I immediately did. She only paid up after Airbnb read through our shared message history and screenshots of all her text messages to me, and most likely told her that her account would be suspended if she did not follow through with payment. To think someone of such low moral character is a teacher, setting such a terrible example for her students, is disturbing. What she did is akin to leaving a restaurant without paying, then fabricating a story to justify it. Her whole group, with the exception of maybe 2-3 women, was a bunch of classless, entitled individuals with no culture, but they are “a great group of girls” if you believe Julie. Fortunately for humanity, anybody who is intelligent, logical, and honest would never believe a word that comes out of a bipolar, mentally unstable, pea-brain like Julie.

Jerome is a very nice and organized host. His communication was amazing and all questions or concerns were answered very quickly both in booking the apartment and the stay. Great area of town, beautiful location for his residence with lots to do in the area and plenty within walking distance. Place is a little compact for a big group, but is a good use of what space is available and the plus was there was plenty of sleeping space for everyone. The only negative I would say is that there is a lack of privacy, with a lot of people in and around the room during daytime hours.

We were a group of 8 that stayed at Jerome's place for Osheaga weekend. Jerome was a fantastic host, very generous and accommodating. The place was perfect for a large group, fully decked out and is ideally located in Old Port Montreal. I would definitely recommend Jerome's place for large groups travelling to Montreal looking to party

This is a great Airbnb Jerome was polite and accommodating. The location is great close to the subway, downtown, the waterfront and Saint Helen's island. I would surely go back and highly recommend

Jerome was a fantastic host with great communication. He was readily accessible to answer any of our questions and assist my group of friend's with whatever we needed. Being situated right on the water and just 5 min walk from Old Town makes this a great location. We loved the foosball table to kill some downtime in between lunch and going out at night. Would highly recommend to anyone.
