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

My wife and I stayed at Chez Francois in September and everything was great! The location is really good, in busy yet quiet street, next a beautiful park. The bedroom was very nice and the quality of the bed was excellent. Last but not least, Laurence was very friendly and her breakfasts were delicious. I would highly recommend the place!

My wife and I, Australian and over 65’s, stayed at Accueil Chez Francois for 5 nights during September, 2014. We endeavour to stay in B & B’s whenever we travel. From the outset I must state our stay was made all the better by the owner Francois who is a terrific bloke, a lot of fun, the most unlikely looking... More

We stayed at Francois' B&B for two nights in July and can only highly recommend this place. After a very warm welcome we were given lots of useful tips about what to do in Montreal and this really helped to make the best out of our time there. The room was very quiet and tasteful and we certainly enjoyed the... More

We stayed here in July for 3 days and found this B&B to be ideal for a visit to Montreal. Francois is a friendly and knowledgeable host whose English is far better than our French. The rooms and common breakfast area are pleasant and comfortable with a good full breakfast served every morning. The B&B is well situated. overlooking a... 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.
