The best part is the free parking spot behind the inn and breakfast. We spent 6 nights in 3 different rooms. Francois was very friendly, and was able to check us in late. Room 5 and 3 are similar, shower stalls in a private bathroom. Room 4 is bigger has a tub and overlooks the park across the street. Good... More

I did like their concept and the room was comfortable generally however there were two things that means that I can not recommend it. Firstly I had discreetly asked for two of the pillows to be changed as they smelt bad. When we got back in the evening they were the same pillows. The smell of greasy hair and body... More

I just spent three nights at Chez Francoise, it was very comfortable, the bed was great and the room quiet. The bathroom was super clean and offered amenities which were welcome. Laurence was very friendly and helpful. Overall it was a great place to stay but I found the location to be a bit far from any metro so I... More

This place was great!!! Francois met us out on the street when we arrived, helped us to our parking spot and got us settled in.We felt at home immediately. The rooms described were exactly that. There was a small common room with a TV and chairs which was nice after a long day of site seeing. Francois was very helpful... More

The only thing I can add to the many glowing reviews is that these people actually care about you! I left my wallet (my entire wallet, multiple credit cards, driver's license, cash, etc.) at a restaurant a few blocks away from the B&B. I realized this in the taxi about 2 mins away from the airport. I was on the... More

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

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.
