The B&B is conveniently located on Avenue Papineau on the eastern side of Parc La Fontaine, about one mile west of the Sherbrooke Metro station. The owner, Francois, lives downstairs but it is managed by Laurence who also lives in the building. We had Room 4, which was very spacious, clean and well furnished. The large bathroom was first class... More

The only reason it isn't a 5 is that it is a bit of a walk to the subway (get the three day pass if visiting) & restaurants, but service makes up for it. Also, room 5 is just off the kitchen so you get some morning noise. It was clean & comfortable, wi-fi worked, breakfast was wonderful and hostess... More

we visited Montreal in early June - and this time the well-appointed Chez Francois had availability! We were welcomed by Mr Personality (Francois) who has a knack for making you feel comfortable in minutes. Breakfast was lovely, rooms clean and very pleasing (we had room 3 with balcony) and gorgeous 3-piece ensuite bathroom. Location? Can't beat it. Buy your beer... More

You can rely on the Trip Advisor reviews: 87.5% excellent, 12.2% very good, and the single “average” review (0.3% of total reviews) complained only about the disclosure of the hotel tax. We (two seniors) happily join the “excellent” crowd. We stayed three nights, and we confess that even if it had not been as outstanding as we found it, we... More

We stayed at Chez Francois over Easter weekend during a getaway to Montreal. From the outset, Francois was a great host. He told us about nearby restaurants and gave us great tips about getting around and experiencing Montreal. Having free wifi and parking on site was very convenient. Our room was newly renovated and beautifully furnished. The only downside was... More

We stayed for two nights at the Chez Francois in May 2015. Very comfortably furnished with good bath rooms, and a good continental breakfast, lorraine made our stay comfortable. We recommend a room coffee / tea maker for oldies like us who appreciate an early morning cup. The park opposite was green and a feast to the eye, also a... More

Two adults and two teens spent at night at Chez François over the Easter weekend. Super location across from a park and walking distance from many restaurants and shops. Rooms were clean and comfortable and François went out of his way to ensure our needs were met. Although we were fairly self-sufficient we had the sense he would have been... More

Fantastic place. I will definitely return. Francois was very polite and helpful. The home made breakfast was a meeting point to know the people. The bus stop in in from of the B&B, the subway just few blocks.

Francois was lovely and helpful, and gave us public transit tips and suggestions on on sites we would have missed. The delicious home-made breakfasts, our very clean and comfortable room and free parking made for a wonderful Montreal vist. We'd definitely return!

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.
