It's no question that Montreal is one of the most popular weekend getaways for Ottawans. Being less than two hours away from downtown and one of the major cities in Canada, it's inexpensive and always busy.
To keep Montreal weekend trips cheap, there's a multitude of Airbnbs in the city that offer inexpensive and central accommodation. Since some of these bnbs come with their building's amenities (if they're condos), you can easily get all the same facilities at a hotel for a fraction of the price. Once you start booking with Airbnb, there really isn't going back. Sorry, Hilton.
We narrowed down eight of our favourite amazing and cheap Airbnbs for a weekend getaway. Which one are you going to book?
