My place is nothing fancy but it's a comfy & super well-located.
Just around the corner from one of Montreal's coolest parks: Parc la Fontaine. Glimpse how real Plateau-dwellers spend winter time. There's free skating with music & xmas lights. Skate rentals are $8
Walk to the other side of the park & you're at La Banquise, the #1 place for poutine, a must at 3 am! It's worth braving the line-up
NB the 2nd. bed is an air-mattress on the living room floor.
