“Charming and well located”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Great location at the end of the old lower town (itself a revelation of beauty in the winter!) and a long winding (good walk) to the upper town. Large and comfortable "terrace-luxe" room, although too cold to use the balcony, nice views of the river from this top floor. Huge bathroom with a heated floor although the heating for the rest of the room seemed rather awry but it did not spoil the ambiance.
Delightful breakfast included in the price - the choices on the menu are good but limited so I would just ask for variations, it is served in the Panache restaurant (separate review) which is very warm and comfortable. Bar was good with attentive service. Spa also very good but it does not have a separate area as it's essentially part of the gym - not an issue as both massage and facial were excellent from Melodie and Emilie.
All in all worth a visit and Quebec City is wonderful!

Room Tip: Top floor with a terrace

This was a nice experience and right in the middle of all city attractions.
Bedroom was basic but comfortable with a nice view on street scenery and
nearby Chateau Frontenac.
Jacques, the receptionnist, took time to point out nearby attractions and
restaurants to go. For breakfast we could choose between French toast,
crepes or eggs all served with slices of fruits, potatoes and bacon.

We definitely recommend this place.

Room Tip: The street side is quite scenic with old buildings and nice shops while rooms facing the backyard a...

Great location right in the middle of beautiful Old Quebec. Very good value (the same price as the local hostels for much more quality!). The furnishing of the hotel is not fancy but it is clean and comfortable. What really stood out for us was the friendliness of all the staff who we met. In particular, when leaving the hotel earlier than breakfast begins, one member of staff insisted that he made us a breakfast to take away. We felt very welcome throughout our stay.

We had a great time here but I can see how it could be hit and miss. The rooms are quite variable - we started off in a small room but were changed to a bigger one because they were deep cleaning the carpets on that floor... in both cases for us, the rooms were fine, with wifi and bathroom. Not the most modern ever, but clean ... The mattress in the second room was not great, though - too soft. Ask to see a couple of rooms if you can, before making a decision.

The cooked breakfast is very good (coffee a little weak but that seems to be the norm here) but you will wait longer for it, so don't go down to breakfast 10 minutes before you need to head to the airport.

Overall, its quiet and value for money. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.

L Auberge St Louis is in the heart of the old city, within walking distance of most attractions. Public car park is very close and the hotel charges $14 for 24 hours.
Room is small, dark and roughly painted and finished. Neon tube lighting all around. Old, dusty and dirty carpets. So called private bathroom is actually a converted wardrobe. Toilet flush had to be fixed after one use. Reception is nearly always closed. Breakfast is included and served at a bar in the basement. Staff is trying to be helpful but speaks very little French and very little English. If you are trying to meet and discover the Quebec people and culture, you might be disappointed.
$79 + tax is a good price for the location, however the experience was so bad we would never recommend this place to anyone. Website info and pictures do not reflect reality.

If you are looking for a no-frills stay in a great location, this is it. Our group of 4 stayed here during the last weekend of Carnaval (mid-February). The location was perfect -- right on the main street in Old Quebec -- and the price was right ($69/night + tax). We were able to park our car and check-in earlier than the advertised check-in time. Although we were on the fourth floor and had to walk up narrow and steep staircases, it was kind of fun. The rooms were small -- especially the room with the sloped roof -- but it was perfectly servicable. The shared bathroom wasn't a problem, there are two on each floor (e.g. one for approximately every 4-5 rooms). Breakfast wasn't stupendous, and wouldn't fill up a hearty eater (the eggs were very undercooked and portions were small), but it was decent and the staff are helpful (even if they don't speak a ton of English).

All in all, I would go back and stay there again.

Room Tip: The sloped roof makes it very hard for tall people. Ask for one not across from the bathroom. Four...

Having walked around the old town and been to 4 other places ranging between 170-99€ we came accross this very unpretentious Auberge. Don't be put off by the downstairs reception it gets better when you get to the rooms. We were on the 3rd floor at the back. Very quiet. The room was quite small but they had made the best use of the space available and little thoughtful things like accessible plug above the bed for recharging electronic devises. The room was very clean and contemporary and tastefully decorated in cream and taupe. Quebec itself is a very pretty city especially at night when the roofs in the old part are lit up and very beautiful. If you stay here for 69€ you can afford a cocktail in the bar at the Chateau Fairmont overlooking the River Lawrence...an experience not to be missed.
