  • Completely confusing. After a month in the city we were still very confused every time we entered this area of malls. The signage is not clear. The maps are worthless. And you wind yourself...

  • The entire concept of a city completely sheltered from the outside is so cool to me! I visited in May, but I can definitely see this as a perfect asset for harsh Montreal winters. It’s not actually closed at night—you can still walk around and see the Berlin wall fragment, fountain, etc. but the shops will be closed. In fact, there’s no one else around at night so you can get really great photos!
  • Wonderful gallery of luxury shops! The Staff is friendly! I recommend, at least for the building! The architecture is gorgeous!
