Great apartment but noisy
My sister and I stayed in this lovely apartment in August 2015, and while we found it well appointed, very clean (partly because you are expected to clean the bathroom yourself before you leave, so the last tenants would have done that for us?) and centrally located, the noise from the traffic on the street was truly excessive. Because a nearby through street was closed during most of our stay, huge trucks came along our street from early morning until late in the evening. What's worse, the apartment is on a corner with a stop sign, so all the trucks had to come to a complete stop, sometimes with air brakes, and then roar the engines to get going again. And although the truck traffic might have been temporary, almost as noisy were the double-length buses that drove along the street from before 6:00 a.m. until after 10:00 p.m. – and they do that all the time as evidenced by the large bus shelter at the end of the street. If you’re sitting on the balcony, you have to pause any conversation until after the buses have gone by.
The apartment’s other significant drawback for us was that the only bathroom is accessed only from the bedroom, which is a nuisance for the person sleeping on the pull-out couch in the living room. To use the bathroom in the night, you have to go through the bedroom because there’s no other way to get there. That’s not a problem for a nuclear family, perhaps, but it’s far from ideal for any other configuration of visitors.
This apartment might be more suitable for winter stays when the windows are tightly closed – or for people who are hard of hearing, perhaps.
Honestly, I do not understand what is your interest to focus so much, in a review, on a temporary noisy situation, caused by major works in the neighbourhood. It is the same for the busses that had to take a different circuit during the repairs.
Regarding the cleaning, don't worry, I do all the cleaning by myself, including the whole bathroom. It is not the last tenants who cleaned your bathroom. I only ask people to make a minimum cleaning of their toilet, by respect for the person who will clean their apartment. That is why I provide cleaning products. I do personnally the same when I rent apartments via Vacation Rentals or other same organisations.
Unfortunatly, you talk a lot of minor inconvenients, but not at all of the comfort of the furniture, the equipement of the kitchen, the condiments that I provide to tenants: salt, pepper, spices, olive oil, sugar, flour, ketchup, mustard etc...
I also provided to you a free parking that I had to deal with one of my tenant to accommodate you, wich is not included with the apartement. But, you didn't respect the place designated, so you'ved cause me a problem with another tenant.
And, about the access to the bathroom through the bedroom, nobody ever complained about that. It is certainly not worst than sleeping in an hotel room.
Finally and once again, what is your interest, and how could your review can inform people, when you complain about a temporary situation. I had tenants all the summer long, starting in May, and no complain at all, only very good comments.
You know, you don't have to write a review, especially if it is to complain of a temporary situation, out of my control.
Much better than expected and very clean
My wife and i loved the quiet, safe and convenient neighborhood. Large and very central to walking anywhere in the city. Very large and cool in summer with perfect little balcony to sit and watch people.....absolutely nothing bad to say....visited aug of 2008,not per calender on this site. Quebec is the closest thing to a european holiday in canada....but better.
Bev and Kev,
Thanks so much for your assessement. I have a really good calendar this summer and I am sure that all you said about the apartment and the area counts very much.
I really hope that you will come again.
