Genvieve was an excellent host. She did a great job of communicating with me before I arrived in Montreal, and I had no trouble finding the apartment. The apartment itself is an attractive second floor unit, entered via one of those classic Montreal outdoor metal staircases - fairly steep but with good treads and a sturdy handrail. The apartment is bright, cheerful, airy, very clean and elegantly decorated. The kitchen was very well equipped, the bathroom new, and the bed very comfortable. This very comfortable apartment is in a lovely neighbourhood - in the heart of Little Italy, just blocks from the Jean-Taon market and the lively Saint- Laurent Avenue ("The Main"). The street itself is quiet and very pleasant. I will definitely stay here again. Thanks, Genevieve, for a wonderful stay.
