Welcome

Vos hôtes

The BBV, nestled in the heart of Montréal’s vibrant gay village, offers its clientele a warm welcome in a charming central location that is only steps away from many of Montréal’s most interesting neighbourhoods. Our guesthouse is equipped with a variety of comfortably furnished rooms – each equipped with an individual air-conditioner, a friendly communal breakfast area, two spacious outdoor patios and secure indoor parking.

Our aim is to offer the perfect compromise between a stay in a hotel and guest accommodation in a private residence. We want you to feel at home while staying with us, and not feel as though you are guests. We run our establishment with utmost professionalism while striving to maintain a relaxed environment. With heart and soul, we do everything we can to ensure that our guests’ stay in Montreal is unforgettable and, whenever possible, we strive to meet their every need. Our establishment is in constant evolution with several improvement projects currently underway.

Come visit us and share in our charming piece of Montréal!

Reviews

  • Exceptional 4 days at BBV

    Phillipe and Nicholas were great hosts! The location is convenient, near the metro and many sights. The room was really comfortable and quiet with a deck to the side for a glass of wine each evening. The breakfast was out-of-this-world great. We looked forward to breakfast every morning with homemade jams, granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, egg sandwiches, croissants and so much more. Every effort was made to enhance our experience throughout our stay. We feel quite lucky to have had four fabulous nights at BBV and would recommend it to anyone visiting Montreal.

  • First Montreal trip

    This BnB is worth looking at when visiting Montreal. It is well located, fairly priced, easy to get go by car and offers clean well appointed rooms of varying sizes. Breakfast offerings are varied and fresh made. The hosts, Phillipe and Nickolas were great. Friendly, accommodating and hard working they add a warm touch to your stay in their city. Located blocks from metro stations makes navigating this city easy. Great restaurants are also within an easy walk. We stayed in their studio with a frig, microwave, small couch, plenty of closet and drawer space and a small but very functional private bath...and again clean. We offer our highest rating which is that we will return to see Phillipe and Nickolas and their beautiful daughter on our next visit to Montreal. Do not second guess this, book today and enjoy your stay.

  • 50th Birthday

    Stayed there with several friends for my fiancé’s 50th Birthday. It was four days of complete fun. The rooms were amazing, the brunches were delicious, and the owners were so nice. Everything was personalized to what we needed/wanted. I have stayed here a few times and will continue to stay here everytime I need a place to stay in the village.

  • Spotless, well-located, exceptional value and nicely appointed

    I felt like I had found a little treasure when I checked in to this lovely property located in a very popular part of town. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were well decorated and I appreciated that even though there was a shared bathroom, the bedroom had a beautiful sink area. Breakfast was really delicious and home made and the rate for all of this hospitality was a fraction of what it would have been elsewhere. I would highly recommend this B&B and would look forward to returning there on my next visit to Montreal.

A: A public bus (#747) departs approximately every 10 minutes from the airport for downtown.

Update: Beaudry metro station is closed until June 2019.

Q : How do you get to the BBV from the Gare Centrale (Central Station) or the Gare d’Autocars de Montréal (Central Bus Station)?

Q: Why do we ask for your flight number when you make a reservation?

A: As we make it a priority to welcome you the very best that we can, we follow your flight status so that we are aware of any delays in your arrival.

Q: Why do we ask for a credit card number when you make a reservation?

A: We ask for your Visa or Mastercard number with its expiration date to simply confirm your reservation.

Q: What time are check-in and check-out?

A: Normally, check-in is after 3 pm and check-out is before 11 am. Operating around a small family unit, we do our best to accommodate special situations and provide our guests with the most flexibility we can, however, it is impossible for us to be present at our reception desk all day. If you change the arrival time that you provided when making your reservation, your arrival flight, your driving itinerary or if you are stuck in traffic or at the border crossing, we ask you to please inform us of this delay as soon as possible so that we can make arrangements for someone to welcome you at your arrival.
It is also possible to leave your suitcases and take your room keys in the morning during breakfast hours.

Q: What time is breakfast served?

A: Our simple but hearty continental breakfast is served from 7.30 am to 9.30 am during the week and from 8.30 am to 10.30 am on weekends and holidays. This schedule is subject to change depending on the season.  Our kitchen is equipped with a large rustic table that seats up to 12 people comfortably.

Q: Are the photos of the rooms accurate representations?

A: The photos were taken by a professional photographer. Although the rooms are made to look their best, they were photographed as they are in reality. No special effects, retouching or wide angles were used.

Q: How big are your rooms?

A: The rooms are medium sized, similar to the size of a room in an average Montreal house, approximately 10 m2 / 105 feet2 , not including the washroom.  If you are looking for a bigger room, we invite you to book the cottage, offered with or without breakfast.

Q: Room with private or shared bathroom?

R: A: The BBV has one shared bathroom on each level. Rooms without private washroom are all equipped with their own sink. Cleanliness is our priority, as can be noted by comments left by guests on Tripadvisor.com. Also, sharing a bathroom is economical and a way to save money on the room rate during your stay at the BBV, while benefitting from the same service.

Q: Am I guaranteed to stay in the exact room that I reserved?

A: The BBV guarantees the type of room (a room with private bathroom for example) agreed upon booking. It is not technically possible to book rooms 10, 11 or 20 in particular. However,  we will consider your preference if you mention it during the booking process, whenever possible.

Q: What is included in the price?

A: The price, in Canadian dollars, includes one night stay, either single or double occupancy, breakfast and a daily room refreshment (towel, bed, washroom). Taxes are not included in the room rate (approximately 19%). Parking is available at 15$ per day, if required.

Q – What is your cancellation policy?

A: As we are a small establishment with 5 rooms, therefore, any last minute cancellation is very costly for us. BBV reserves the right to apply a one-night room charge (+ taxes) if the cancellation is made 2 days or less prior to your scheduled arrival or two nights in case of no-show (cancellation without any notice).
Please note that every change or cancellation to an existing reservation has to be done through email.
Special conditions apply to stays longer than seven nights and to reservations of three rooms or more.

Q: Are animals permitted?

A: We do not allow animals. Please note, however, that we have a shorthaired French Spaniel that is not permitted in either the guest rooms or the dining room during breakfast service.

Q: Are you a gay establishment?

A: Although we are located in the heart of the Gay Village, we are happy to welcome everyone, regardless of orientation. This is shown by the diverse profiles of previous guests that have posted comments on the travel website Tripadvisor.com after staying with us.

Q: Are you an officially recognized Bed and Breakfast?

A: Yes. We are recognized by the CITQ (Quebec Tourism Industry Corporation), the government sponsored organisation responsible for certification and classification of tourist accommodation. We have been awarded 3 suns. We also are member of BBCanada.

Q: Are you an environmentally responsible business ?

A: The environment is our priority. Also, we use eco-friendly cleaning products, fair trade coffee, maple syrup produced by a family organic maple grove and bacon made without the addition of antibiotics from pigs raised with respect.
