I had been to many B&B's over the years and I enjoyed almost all of them. I was very surprised to get the poor service I had received from this one. I called 3 hours before we arrived (we were asked to call and let the owner know the arrival time.) The lady who works at the B&B answered the... More

location was good, the building and rooms are cute, and the owner is very kind. that said, parking was super difficult, the beds were so uncomfortable we couldn't sleep at all, and breakfast was... sparse.

Celine was very helpful and accommodated us greatly! She was also very good at getting back to us quickly while we were planning our trip. Not to mention, she is very sweet and wants to be sure that her customers are well taken care of!

I very much enjoyed my 4-night stay at Au Piano Blanc. As others have mentioned, the location is excellent, the breakfasts tasty, and the hostess quite knowledgeable. I took a small room on the first floor, so it was a bit noisy, simply due to location (and a camera crew my last day!). But I definitely recommend it; the shared... More

This place is magic and Céline is a wonderful host. the hotel is very close to Mont Royal St and there's a lot of activity in the neighborhood. For those who love birds, you will also have the chance to meet Céline' parrot.

Even though some of the rooms are extremely small (double bed w/12" of walking space on both sides) and you have to share a bathroom, the location of this B&B is very good. I would recommend getting a room w/bathroom in order to get a little bit more space and privacy. There is a comfortable area on the second story... More

On first glance, I was a little bit skeptical of Au Piano Blanc, but once we met GiGi and got settled into our room, I was very happy to be staying there. Our room was quite small, but seeing as we were out for most of the day, we didn't need any extra space. I thought I would mind sharing... More

This B&B is located about 1/2 block from Mont Royal St and is next door to a subway station. There is a market next to the station. There are also restaurants and other places of business within walking distance.It's in a vibrant area and there is parking along the street. A parking lot is located across from the B&B and...

A fun and very central place to stay in Montreal. Celine is a very gracious hostess but since we were the only guests this particular night we did not get to partake in one of her great breakfasts but she cordially gave us a discount and recommended some other breakfast options.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
