Au Piano Blanc

B&b in Plateau Mont-Royal & the Northeast

The ‘colors of the sun,’ as owner Céline – a former singer, puts it – radiate from this simple five-room B&B a stone’s throw from Mont-Royal metro station. Brightly painted rooms, colorful artwork and whimsical bedside lamps add to the good cheer. Some rooms are tiny while others have views of the back terrace.

Some beds are uncomfortable and there's no air-conditioning – only an issue on those torrid August nights.
