As every, Lonely Planet never disappoints.... full of all the essential information needed to start planning your trip. Handy maps and public transport guides are in the back of the book. Not a big book, just the basics, so good to pack in your day bag when you are ready to go exploring.

we have not yet travelled to Montreal so i'm still not 100% sure how it will hold up but it does look like it has lots of good information in it. In terms of hotels they only review/rate hostels & B&Bs no chain hotels which is probably fair because most chain hotels are well known or reviews can be easily found online.

HASH(0xa01bbedc) out of 5 stars Helpful, but oddly organized Sept. 26 2013
By Robert Gray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lonely Planet has always been my go-to for straightforward lowdown and insider tips. The organization has always been just as straightforward. Not so in this book, which combines Montreal with Quebec City. I was only in Montreal, so did not need the Quebec info, but even still, I found the organization difficult to follow at times. Neighborhood references overlap and can be hard to follow. Also, it seems like the recommendations are tilted toward the expensive, obvious end of the scale. For example, the recommended "thrift stores" along St.-Laurent are the pricey, "vintage" stores. I liked Eva B., which I found on Yelp! It was truly funky, cheap, the real thing.

HASH(0xa0597c9c) out of 5 stars Great if you want just Montréal, look elsewhere for Quebec City Nov. 6 2014
By Matt Boisen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book should be entitled "Montréal!!!!! (and a few pages on Quebec City)"....Since we were only going to Quebec City this time, and there are not many guidebooks on just Quebec City, I was glad to find this on ebay for .99. And that was all it was worth. Most of the book focuses on Montréal, and like another reviewer wrote, skips around, tosses in a few pages (44 out of 245, to be specific) on Quebec City and finishes with chapters on day trips from Montréal, where to sleep in Montréal, the culture of Montréal and large detailed maps of Montréal. Weird. There was very little detailed information on Quebec City despite the assertion that it is "the crown jewel of French Canada" and "one of North America's oldest and most magnificent settlements". And in those mere 44 pages, very little on surrounding areas, including one whole paragraph on the "stunning" and "easily worth two days or more" Ile d'Orléans. The photo of Quebec City's magnificent Chateau Frontenac on the cover just adds to the irony.

HASH(0xa01c3e10) out of 5 stars Marginally helpful on our trip. Aug. 20 2015
By M Burns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
On our recent trip to Montréal and Québec City, this book was marginally helpful.
We attended the Rogers Cup at Uniprix Stadium in Montréal - a major tennis tournament. The guide had absolutely no references to this location which was a major venue.
If you see an entry of a restaurant or shopping you like, there is no guidance on which metro line or stop to take! So it didn't help much.
The sections of the city (Montréal) were accurately described. However, the writing seemed biased and not neutral. Would have preferred a truly diverse, unbiased guide.
The section for Québec City had no mention of shopping, restaurants, only the history of the town and photos. Disappointing.

Arranged by neighborhood. Easy to read. Dinning and drinking section were spot on. Love the pictures. Light enough to carry with you.

HASH(0xa032018c) out of 5 stars I really enjoyed my trip to Montreal by this book Sept. 1 2014
By Jun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed my trip to Montreal by this book. It contains a lot of hot spots of East Canada, and information about other things are almost correct. I highly recommend to use this book when you travel to Montreal or Quebec
