Bell Centre Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 Star Rating

4 Star Rating My memory of the Bell Centre was Georges St Pierre fighting in it for numerous UFC fights. I am a hockey fan but never really followed the Canadiens. Fortunately I was able to watch them play and visit this nice stadium. Nice atmosphere as the home team won, good energy and nice arena.

5 Star Rating Always a great experience to watch a Habs game at home. The staff is extremely efficient and organized. There are a lot of people obviously, but the experience doesn’t feel overwhelming. I would definitely recommend getting there at least 20-30 minutes before the game to get to your seats on time.

5 Star Rating Great place to watch hockey. We got last minute "nosebleed" seats and we were able to see everything. Staff was helpful in directing us to our seats. Concessions had short lines.

5 Star Rating I went here over the weekend for a hockey game and had such a great time. What really made it memorable though was the stadium tour they took us on in the afternoon. Through the pro shop we found out about it and it was $20 to see literally everything. Kim and Kevin took us around and they were so knowledgeable about everything. I highly suggest doing it.
