Turquoise B&B is located in the Village, a few minutes’ walk from the Latin Quarter, Old Montreal, the Quartier des Spectacles and the Place des Festivals, and from downtown with its numerous boutiques and museums. Gilles is always happy to share restaurant tips according to your tastes! For business, Turquoise B&B is close to the offices of key television (TVA, CBC-Radio-Canada, Télé-Québec) and radio stations. Turquoise B&B is a 5 minute walk from the Beaudry and Papineau subway stations (green line) or a 10 minute walk from Berri-UQAM station (orange, green and yellow lines) and the central bus terminal, where the 747 bus line connects directly to Pierre-Elliot Trudeau International Airport (Dorval). A BIXI bike share station is right in front of the house. Free street parking is available in the neighborhood. Gilles will advise you on where to park once you have dropped your bags at Turquoise.
Turquoise B&B is a two minute walk from Rue Sainte-Catherine, the Gay Village’s vibrant main artery. Since the early 1980s, the LGBT community has been meeting in the Village’s numerous restaurants, boutiques, bars and clubs, in a spirit of open acceptance of differences. From May to September, Rue Sainte-Catherine is closed to vehicular traffic, becoming one of the city’s only pedestrian streets, where Montrealers and tourists alike come to stroll or dine on one of the many terraces.
