Uville: The Old Montreal Museum Hotel
Located in the heart of the old town, a few meters from the Pointe-à-Callière museum and Place Royale, the cradle of what will later become Ville-Marie and Montréal, the Uville, this magnificent hotel with around thirty rooms are allowing you to give a nostalgic nod to Quebec, and more particularly to Montréal from the ’60s to the end of the ’70s…
The arrival at Uville
As soon as you arrive in the hotel lobby, you have the reception to your right and then you have the small lounge/bar/restaurant, open from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., serving cocktails, a good selection of local and imported wines and to satisfy your hunger, with comforting classic Quebec dishes.
With its themed floors, you will live with sounds, images, colors, artefacts, and even furniture from these decades. Black and white photos of 60s Montreal on one floor, Expo 67 passports in one room, and even record players that will be the music lover’s trump card. On the other hand, if you prefer to use your digital device, these toys can also turn into a Bluetooth device!
All rooms have coffee makers, color TVs (of course!) With BYOD technologies, safes, and if you want, some rooms can also accommodate your small pet.
This means that even if the theme is focused on nostalgia, it is indeed a modern hotel.
The art of breakfast
Breakfast, which is included, is served in the rooms; undisturbed, it will be hung just outside your door. So you can eat quietly in bed while listening to Charlebois records or even watching a documentary thanks to the collaboration of the ONF and the Hotel Uville..
Of course you always have the option of having lunch in the lobby and relaxing with the other guests while having your coffee.
