DrAtkins : No, not at this one, it’s a “private” full residence. Airbnb also offers rooms for rent & cottages on the property of a main house. But this particular Airbnb is just a condo all to yourselves. That said, the owners are very accessible & responsive to questions or any issues that might come up. And they are lovely people. The place is comfortable, thoughtfully furnished, the owners provide you with all kinds of local info and we really liked the location. There’s a bike rental station just across the street & it was convenient for public transit. Priced great too.
Its one of my most memorable/best Airbnb experiences. Montreal is easy enough/language is not an issue. So it’s one of the travel destinations in the world that I’ll do shorter (3-ish) day stays at in an Airbnb vs a hotel.
(If I’m staying 3 days in a city where English is not widely spoken & I might need help with reservations or using public transit, etc. I’ll stay in a hotel.)

- Wedding: August 2012
We just spent 5 days in Montreal back in early October and LOVED it!
Brunch: Olive & Gourmando (Old Montreal, Saint-Paul St)) get there early for the best pastry selection, they sell out fast!
Dinner: La Verita (west of the city) modern, high-end, amazing food, reservations recommended
Dessert: La Croissanerie Figaro (Mont Royal area) seriously, the BEST cheesecake I have ever tasted. We went for dessert there twice.
Cute boutique: Le Walk-In du Magasin General du Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
Mont Royal was beautiful and we really enjoyed seeing the leaves changing color. We did a LOT of walking around everywhere. Comfy shoes are a must.
