The neighborhood is visually stunning with the well-maintained homes. No two homes looked the same, no ,cookie cutter' homes here. Great little shops, cafes, and bars. Lovely artistic vibe with amazing murals.

Stayed here for two days and wished I stayed longer. Homes have a lot of character. Great boutiques and unique restaurants. Good for spending a lazy afternoon. If you are coming for a casual visit, I highly recommend this area.

The Plateau Mont-Royal area of Montreal is very trendy. Great cafes, restaurants, and bars are dotted throughout the community. It is a great place to walk the streets whereby one can gaze at the many breathtaking murals which adorn the buildings in the area.

Not aware of the various neighborhoods in Montreal, we booked our stay in this area without knowing what a gem it is. We enjoyed strolling the streets and finding delightful local places to shop and eat. We love to walk, so it was a doable trek into the old town to enjoy a more touristy area as well.

Our hotel wasn't far from Plateau Mont-Royal and we spent several hours wandering around all the beautiful streets of the neighbourhood. The eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, bars and coffee shops are all so enticing. I could spend days just mooching around soaking up the artsy atmosphere. Stopping for a coffee here, rifling through a vintage shop there, eating bagels... More

We walked through Prince Arthur a few times and loved the diversity and eclectic, somewhat artistic nature of the place.

Explored this neighborhood at the recommendation of our hotel staff and enjoyed seeing a less touristy side of the city. Lots of food options, interesting shops, murals and creative energy here. Would definitely recommend if you want to explore a different side of Montreal.

Lots of restaurants, nice to walk around. Low-key, well located, worth visiting. Not touristy, just fun.

We had dinner at Les Deux Gamins (very good) in order to get to know this area of Montreal which was very well reviewed. I think you have to be younger to appreciate (we are a group of ladies in our 50s... college reunion of sorts)... certainly on a Saturday night when we were there. Very eclectic...clubby crowd. A little... More

This is a very interesting area to explore, historical houses and streets, interesting vintage shops. However, this area houses a lot of spoiled hipsters now and it used to attract cooler, more authentic people to its neighborhood.

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.
