All reviews above ground huge mall gare centrale eaton centre rainy day street level great place to shop cold weather lots of shops downtown montreal old montreal tunnel winter metro reso maze interconnected
It seemed once we were in the Underground City that we were in a mall that just went on forever. Lots of great shops and areas where water features and public area for relaxing make this a happening kind of place. We enjoyed a couple...More
never ending interconnecting corridors lined with shops of all sorts leading from one mall into another at underground level connecting with several main shopping centres above, and of course linking up with the Metro and Central Station, absolutely no need to go out if you...More
I really appreciate the fact that it is possible to visit the city without actually going outside. Once in the system you can go to shopping centers (Cathedral promenade), show (place des arts), sport events (Bell Center), convention (Convention Center, Place Bonaventure), work, universities, hotels...More
We made use of this city to escape extreme weather. It was great for that purpose. We also enjoyed the free fountain light and music show at 11 & 10 PM. There are some nice little shops to grab a souvenir or quick, casual bite...More
We were very interested in finding this "Underground city" but the fact is that lot of the sections is actually at street level or above ground and in shopping malls. The entrances are NOT clearly marked so it is not easy to find but you...More
We went on a rainy day expecting something worth wild and offering great shopping and local cuisine. The place was empty! There are a few stores and a small food court. The rest of upstairs was all corporate offices and businesses. You’re don’t within a...More
Firstly, I booked this tour online and when I arrived there I was told it probably would be cancelled as I was the only one registered. I had spent $20 to get to the meeting place as I had no idea it may not be...More
Many big name retailers, and smaller specialty stores. Fast foods--organic too! I spent a rainy afternoon inside, a bit lost at times, and managed to get jeans 40% off at WINN. If you look around you can find shirts for $10 and under. Get a...More
Although we went there on a perfectly beautiful day in May, it certainly opened our eyes about how people in Montreal survive the winter. There are so many facilities....basically everything except schools. It is easily accessible by public transportation or good ol' shoe leather express.
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.

The underground shopping area is quite large and it’s easy to get turned around. Finding your car after an extensive underground shopping experience may be challenging.
Metro stops are located around the underground city. So my recommendation is leave the car at your hotel and use the public transportation it’s easy and convenient. Montreal prides itself on its clean and effecient public transportation. Or if you like there are plenty of cabs. Either option is better than driving your car. For me once you arrive in Montreal park the car and leave it parked until you are ready to depart the city.
The Queen E and the InterContinental. These are high end facilities. I am not aware of any mid-range hotels attached to the underground city. That does not mean there are none. Peel Street has a hotel just across the street... More
The Queen E and the InterContinental. These are high end facilities. I am not aware of any mid-range hotels attached to the underground city. That does not mean there are none. Peel Street has a hotel just across the street from the Peel Metro - Inn by Marriott Montreal.
There isn't a "best" entrance. It depends on where you are. If you just want to walk through then start anywhere and walk in any direction. There are multiple directions to go and sometimes more than one way of going to the... More

Have fun exploring, but take a map with you.
