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!

During a work trip to Montreal I stumbled upon this excellent place by chance. Francois was extremely helpful and punctual while we were trying to book a place while our work required early mornings and late days. He was most considerate and polite. Absolutely beautiful location while the inside felt just at home. No need for a hotel or expensive... More

This is a good b and b. most people have already said this and said its got good food, spacious rooms and has excellent facilities. They are right- its especially good to find a b and b with laundry facilities -at no cost. But I'll focus on two items both to do with the location. The first is that though... More

We spent 3 nights at Chez Francois in October, and would make this our home the next time we are in Montreal for sure. This small and casual BnB is located close to some of the city's best restaurant and shopping areas, so there are lots of interesting and walkable places. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a lofty... 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.
