Where we are is just as important as what we are. Situated on Mackay Street, a quiet side street just steps from Sainte-Catherine Street, the city's main downtown shopping district, Auberge L'Apero is within walking distance of most of Montreal's attractions including Old Montreal, Chinatown, numerous museums, and our famous Underground City. We are only one block from the Metro, the city's fast, clean subway system that can whisk you anywhere that is too far to walk, from the Jean-Drapeau Park to the hip boutiques and restaurants of the famous Plateau Mont-Royal. We are just a 15 minutes bus ride from Mount-Royal, Montreal's largest urban park, that offers seasonal sports and majestic views, Montreal is a city of festivals and our location gives easy access, either on foot or by Metro, to the venues of all of our great festivals. Whether you come to our city for Jazz, Comedy, the Fringe Festival, les Nuits d'Afrique or the Saturday night Fireworks, you will be close enough to walk, but far enough away to relax and sleep in quiet and comfort. Montreal has an excellent public transit system that can get you anywhere in the city. The first time you go to a metro station, ask the ticket taker or our staff for the Plan de Réseau. It is the official public transit map, one of the best maps of the city, and it is free. The Societe de Transport de Montreal offers other good maps on their web site.
