Appartements LaCité Complaint - Dishonest Short Term Appartment Rentals In Montreals

Review by John_Dragan on 2010-03-05
MONTREAL -- They deal in renting furnished appartments in Montreal.. I needed a furnished appt for one week in Montreal. I contacted them and was offered the #1610 by Melody T. They advertised the unit at $1825 a month and it was decorated by a designer. I rented the unit for the week commencing January 7th. When I arrived with a friend I found to my shock and horror the place was a dump. The place was still dirty from the last guest. The only thing missing from this designer appt was the rats. I phoned the rental office and demanded my money back. Fortunately my friend offered to take me in. The company representative returned my money and offered me a coupon for a future rental asking me to give them another chance.
Two weeks later I contacted them again as I needed another appt for a week. I spoke to Melody T. and reminded her who I was. She offered me another unit and I requested to see it before renting it. She agreed and I travelled to the location to inspect it. I agreed to rent it and asked them to send me a confirmation. Three hours after receiving the confirmation, Melody T. sent me a e-mail that they were cancelling the reservation. I phoned her up and inquired why and she told me they had received a more lucrative offer for this unit.
Do you want to trust your vacation or business plans with these kind of people. They give Montreal a bad name.

Wow canceling because they found someone who would pay more. That's quite the duchebag manuver. I am going to Montreal in June for the Grand prix, I will be sure to avoid these guys.

This review sounds awfully familiar. I feel like I've read an almost identical review before.
