This is a clean, up-to-date venue for the Montreal Canadiens. Easy of access and comfortable. I was astonished at the constant audio and visual bombardment I experienced, from the time I approached Bell Centre to the time I exited the building.

The arena was very clean and it was not hard to find our seats. The staff however had no idea where the main merchandise store was which was kind of baffling. You work there but do not know where the main store is? We ended up purchasing things from a bunch of small shops instead and were so mad when... More

The venue (Centre Bell) was well situated downtown and easy to access. The security staff were efficient and pleasant when entering the building. However, there were seats out for the concert (Bastille) on the floor, which is not typical for most arenas- there is usually just an open "general admission" area for the floor- that was the only drawback. Otherwise,... More

Took in a regular season Habs game. Excellent experience. Well oiled machine. Staff everywhere, helpful, dedicated, welcoming. Seats at all levels are very good, comfortable and great views from all around. Expensive beer, but that's every NHL / multi-seat Corporate venue.

The Bell Centre is a great venue to catch a hockey game or other entertainment event. It doesn't have the same feel as the old Forum for those that remember the experience there. However, it is a well organized an efficient place to enter and exit. The facilities are great and the staff very helpful. Price are not cheap for... More

It's main purpose is for hockey. Fun if you can get a ticket for a home game. As a music venue, the is really dependent on the sound engineers. Sometimes it's good, but ear plugs are highly recommended.

Ordered tickets for pick up at Will call--no problems picking them up. Awesome seats for Lumineers and Kaleo in section 102 row CC--so close we could see everything--high enough that we could have sat down to watch if we wanted to.

Well, from the beginning it seems to be a great experience, the Bell Arena Center was crowded, we have found too much people around, if we had hungry the service at the chairs was enough to order food - popcorn, beer, water; not only in sida the arena but also at the corridors there are several stores -bars, gifts store,...

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
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.
