The problem with the Bell Centre is that getting around the arena is a pain, Narrow hallways and lots of people. The beer prices of over $12CAD is incredible. Food prices are better but still challenging. Though no fault of the Bell Centre parking is major problem, with the nearby buildings and lots charging $25-30 CAD while trying to leave... More

Love going to Habs games whenever we can. There isn't a bad seat there. (I don't think) They get you in quickly and the traffic isn't too bad when the game lets out. We usually are walking though.

The stadium is modern, nice and clean. The bathrooms are beyond huge and clean. There is no line!!!! There are many concession stands and the security is high. The MC entertaining the crowd was fabulous. We had a great time.

I experience my first Hockey Game in Montreal at the Bell center! wow what an experience! well organized and huge! Super place!. As an advice please do not bring large objects such as cameras as they will not let you in with them.

Even if you are not a hockey fan, just walking near this building will give you goosebumps. The walk up to the building includes monuments to famous players as well as rosters of all the players, ever.

We watched an exciting hockey game one night and then went back the next day for the tour. The dressing room is off limits on game day/special events which is why we opted to tour the next day.

If you are a hockey fan regardless of the team you must attend at least one game at the Centre Bell. For the locals cheering on Le Canadien is close to a religious experience. Also take the one hour tour (on non game days you get to see the dressing rooms too!). Tickets are hard to get and good ones... More

Montreal is renowned for so many different things and Bell center is definitely one landmark that marks the city. It is the venue where all concerts take place and whenever a hockey game is not playing, you are sure to have a A list group or singer rocking the place. It is definitely a playground for most Montrealers who come... More

I'm an avid hockey fan and have attended NHL games in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Florida and NY and must admit that you simply cannot get the feel for the love of Hockey as you get by watching a Habs game in Montreal. The atmosphere is simply unsurpassed and you will never get such a fabulous experience elsewhere. I was even... More

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.
