I am writing this in my room in the hotel while it's all fresh in my mind. I agree with the comments about great location, but that should be no revelation if you look at a map of Old Quebec. Our third floor room has two old stone walls, a feature much touted by Louise, who made our reservation. A friendly young man helped us find our way around the corner from the Acadia. The room is small (I'd guess about 14 x 16 including the bathroom) but comfortable, and for the price ($116/day) I'd say it's about what I would have expected, although the view of a tar roof isn't the greatest. As mentioned by others, the plumbing is a bit iffy (i.e. the temperature of the shower (no bath) can change from minute to minute), but that's what you get with old plumbing. The street parking situation in Old Quebec is really tight and we were warned by the girls at the front desk that they tow illegally parked cars "fast" so we had no option but to pay $20 a day for parking the car...but again, this isn't an issue solely restricted to Hotel Louisbourg. The double bed is reasonably comfortable and the furnishings are plain but serviceable. Had a little trouble finding enough available electrical outlets to accommodate our various devices, but again, not a dealbreaker. Yes, there's no elevator, but c'mon people, this is Old Quebec—if you can't handle walking up stairs (and hills), you'd be better off vacationing somewhere else. Our room was actually pretty easy to get to, up two short flights of stairs. I was also happy to find that the floor was solid. Nothing I hate more than walking on creaky floors...other than listening to someone above me doing the same. Since it's still early, I haven't had a chance to check out the breakfast offerings next door. Hope what one person said about them running out of food by late breakfast hour isn't true—my wife likes to sleep in. All in all, I have no problem giving this place four stars—as long as you understand it's based on value and location and not an absolute rating (which would probably be about two and a half stars). (Over the years, I've tended to give rough star ratings to hotels equal to how many bath towels they provide...four star operations invariably offer four towels; five stars means four towels plus bathrobes. Hotel Louisbourg included two large towels, and not of the best quality.)
