All reviews above ground huge mall gare centrale eaton centre rainy day street level great place to shop cold weather great shopping lots of shops downtown montreal old montreal tunnel winter metro reso maze
You can find some of the best food here, check near the Gare Central. Fun for shopping (you can find anything and everything) great for when you just don't want to be outside and there are always tons of people.
So interesting to see how space age all this big network of restaurants, shops and boutiques works underground helping us cope with the winter season. Great passages for all the business people working downtown that can escape the cold winter living underground connected to the...More
The shopping is so-so, but it is a pretty good way to get out of the freezing Montreal winter and heaps of snow. We found it really easy to use, and the maps clear enough. We could actually use it to get from our hotel...More
We spent 10 days at the Hotel Bonaventure during the 1998 ice storm and were able to shop, walk, eat out, see films and have a terrific indoor time throughout. The Underground City is safe and a wonderful asset to Montreal with its dreadful winter...More
My husband and I are avid travelers and he is excellent with a map, yet we still could not locate the shopping in the underground city. We entered the metro, hopped a train and followed the signs to what was supposed to be part of...More
The so-called "underground city" is comprised of a number of kms, not all inter-connected and is pretty much nithing but a huge shopping mall. A curiosity, and fun to visit once or twuce, but I prefer the castles of Europe!
The underground city is defnately interesting. It has alot of shops and eateries. Easy to get lost, my advice would be to get a map from the information desk and hang on to it. If you really want to shop I would reccommend going back...More
It seriously feels like your in a never ending mall not that your unground near a metro. It's a bunch of malls attached to one another but without a lot of store repeatition, I would highly recommend this for rainy day shopping.
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.

Parking is an issue throughout the shopping district and Old Montreal. There are places to park, but if possible I would leave the car at your hotel and take a cab or the metro. They provide easy access throughout the city... More

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

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.
