Q: What is coliving?
A: The term coliving means working together and living together. It is an intentional community where remote workers can meet other people with similar interests in a friendly, professional and stimulating environment for a period ranging from one to nine months (exceptions can be made upon request). The common areas (kitchen, lounge, workspaces, leisure areas, terraces) are shared spaces reserved for our residents and their guests. ColivingMontreal is also ideal for students, travellers, or anyone relocating to the city and looking for a flexible living situation that they share with like-minded individuals. It is the perfect solution for those who would prefer a social dimension to their stay, where they will feel more at home than in a hotel.
Q: Who is ColivingMontreal?
A: In 2011, Philippe and Nicolas, the owners of ColivingMontreal, opened the Bed and Breakfast du Village, one of the most popular Bed and Breakfasts in Montreal for almost ten years. In 2020, they have decided to convert their establishment into a type of rooming house inspired by the idea of coliving.
Q: What services are offered in each living space?
A: Each room, suite and apartment is equipped with its own air conditioner, high speed broadband Internet, a television with Apple TV (access to cable, Netflix, etc..). The rooms and suites also have access to a shared kitchen and laundry room.
Q: Is it possible to telework at ColivingMontreal?
A: We have set up several work areas, both formal and informal, in the building. Telework is, therefore, possible from morning to evening, always in respect of the community that is sharing the space. A printer is also available. Conscious of the evolution of the world of remote working, we are ready to adapt and make changes based on suggestions from our residents.
Q: Why is it different than a hotel room or a studio rented through a reservation platform?
A: The concept of coliving implies a social dimension where the residence participates in an intentional community: A Coexistence. Whether you choose a room with a shared bathroom, a suite or a fully furnished apartment, residents are invited to share the common areas and to propose initiatives to the community. The hosts take care of everything else.
