Notre-Dame Basilica (French: Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal) is a basilica in the historic district of Old Montreal, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The church is located at 110 Notre-Dame Street West, at the corner of Saint Sulpice Street. It is located next to the Saint-Sulpice Seminary and faces the Place d’Armes square.

The church’s Gothic Revival architecture is among the most dramatic in the world; its interior is grand and colourful, its ceiling is coloured deep blue and decorated with golden stars, and the rest of the sanctuary is a polychrome of blues, azures, reds, purples, silver, and gold. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues. Unusual for a church, the stained glass windows along the walls of the sanctuary do not depict biblical scenes, but rather scenes from the religious history of Montreal. It also has a Casavant Frères pipe organ, dated 1891, which comprises four keyboards, 92 stops using electropneumatic action and an adjustable combination system, 7000 individual pipes and a pedal board.

Super clean, friendly staff, and amazing neighbourhood

We came for a music festival.. We were in the heart of bars, bistros, microbreweries and restaurants. The room was smaller but very very clean, the staff was helpful and very pleasant. We were only there for sleeping. We found the bed very comfy. We didn’t have breakfast there as we were out and off to the local restaurants.. It was a little odd the set up, but the price and location (2 blocks from the metro) was perfect. We will be staying here the next time we are in Montreal!!
