“Expensive European feel, with a small Canadian price!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Everything was magnificent, except 3 things. English is very limited , construction in the room next door at literally 6:30 Am, laying hardwood. And the last but not least, the floors are very squeaky even the bed. Don't be surprised to hear your neighbor walk around or get intimate, the walls are not thick at all.

Only downfalls though, the 2 dining locations on site are wonderful for breakfast lunch dinner. You can beat price for location. I'd go back in a second regardless of the negatives!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We stayed a couple days here and we were very satisfied with the experience. The parking lot outside is relatively small, though there were a few open spots. The front desk was friendly and accommodating to our limited French and even spoke to us in English which was very helpful.

Our room was on the First Floor, which is actually the second floor and overlooked the neighboring gas station and mini-mart. But as a hotel in the city what can you expect? The room was very well equipped and even came with a little kitchenette area (fridge, stovetop, sink). The decor was relatively new and the brick/stone wall added some unique character to the room. Space was tight, but given the size and location of the hotel, that's what I would have expected.

The road noise was a bit loud, and there was a little bit of a repetitive clicking noise through the night (not sure what from), but for the price we paid, this Hotel was a great value.

This hotel was recommended by friends and I wasn't disappointed. Its located near the port and The Rue St. Paul, which is a charming shopping street. Very nice staff and varied hotel rooms. The restaurant in the hotel is worth checking out.

Room Tip: The rooms are all very different so the choice of room can make a difference.

Where to begin? At the beginning, I suppose.

When we arrived at our room, it was not at all how it looked on the website. It was small and dark and the exposed pipes made my young son nervous (I think he was expecting spiders to be dropping off them, or something).

One of the lights did not work. The sofa bed had food remnants (nuts) in it. When we moved a notepad on the desk, we discovered that the desk was damaged. I went to reception and told them and then when I went back upstairs, I moved the phone to put a bag there and discovered another hole. There were also hairs on the bathroom floor and the utensils in the kitchen were a bit dirty.

The next morning, we left the "do not change sheets" card on the bed, but on the second and third mornings we did not. The sheets were still not changed. The room was also a bit noisy, as we could often hear people above and beside us making noise.

I can't say it as terrible, but it was certainly not good, either and it definitely did not match the impression we got from the website. From the other comments posted here, I am left thinking that there is a tremendous difference in the quality of the various rooms.

I would not stay there again.

The hotel is very well located, close to everything.
The room was spacious, simply but elegantly decorated.
Everything is there to accommodate customers.
The staff is very welcoming and polite.
We shopped on Expedia and got our hands on a deal and came across this wonderful little hotel.
A little trick we laughed, we did not know where the switches to turn on the lights in the room, it took us some time to find them.

Location is great, but...
I speak fluent French, my wife is French Canadian from Quebec City, so, there was no issue with communication. The front desk staff is somewhat aloof (not all of them, but enough of them to be slightly annoying). The walls in the rooms are paper thin, we could easily hear the people next door and certainly the people above us. I don't think they were walking heavily, but, they certainly made a lot of noise at 2am, especially rolling the desk chair back and forth (likely sitting at the desk using a computer). OK, that's allowed, I do it, I just don't want to hear my neighbours.

Like many hotels, they have a sheet change card. Leave it on the bed...don't change the sheets, not in view...change the sheets. On several occasions, the sheets were NOT changed. I asked at the front desk and the desk clerk didn't know about the card and looked at me as if I was strange. Nevertheless, that night the sheets were changed since I had insisted. Our room was nice, large, small kitchen with hot plate, microwave, coffee maker, fridge, (functional and allowed us to have breakfast in the room and cook a few meals. The view is overlooking the parking lot (the other option is overlooking the gas station)...but...sitting on the sofa, looking out at the neighbouring old buildings as it snowed was lovely. View straight down to the parking lot is what it is. On check out we were seriously overloaded (we drove there and besides shopping, were bringing things home from my wife's mom), so, the hotel cart was a bit hard to manage. Pushed it past the front desk towards the door. Two staff at the desk and no one offered to help me get it out the door or hold the doors open. This was at 7 am, the lobby was empty. Little things but annoying. Can't comment on the restaurant, didn't try it. Might stay here again, might not.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the parking lot.
