“What a great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

I have nothing but good things to say about this apartment hotel. If I had more than 5 stars, I'd use them. My wife, our two kids and I stayed in apartment #1 during the last week of August 2011 and it was ideal. The upstairs level is a combination living room and dining room, with a kitchenette off to the side (with new appliances and cabinets), and a bedroom and bathroom downstairs. The couch upstairs near the cable TV is a sleeper, so the kids were very happy there. Everything was clean, the decor very warm, and the whole place was well appointed. The location is great - a few steps from a park, and near everything in the old city. Eric, the manager, could not have been more responsive when we emailed or called with questions before and during our stay. No problem with WiFi. It made our vacation perfect and there is no doubt that we will stay there again.

My wife and I stayed in Apt #3 in March & April of 2009 and, more recently, Apt #1 in Jan of 2011. No. 3 is upstairs on the second floor and consists of a combination kitchen, dining room, and living room and a bedroom and bathroom with a shower. The sofa in the living room made into a bed so that the apartment can accommodate 4 people. The kitchen has a large round table with 4 chairs. There's a flat screen television over the fireplace which can be seen from the bedroom. This apartment has range, refrigerator, coffee maker, and other amenities which makes it an excellent place to stay for a month or two. There was also ample closet space for storing one's clothes and luggage. We were there in cold weather and the steam heating kept it quite comfortable.

No. 1 is somewhat larger and is on the ground floor with the bedroom and bathroom located down below. The bathroom contains a combination tub & shower. There is steam heat in this apartment and a space heater in the bedroom and both keep it quite comfortable in winter. The combination kitchen, living room, dining room is quite large and spacious. Like the upstairs apartment, it contains range, refrigerator, coffee maker, and other amenities which makes it an ideal place for spending several weeks or a month. It also contains ample closet space. The living room has a flat screen television and a sectional sofa.

There is a phone on a small table on the first floor for making and receiving calls. A washer & dryer are located in the basement and each charges $1.50 per load. This place is located within walking distance of grocery stores, restaurants, bookstores, and all of the attractions of the beautiful city of Quebec. One can easily walk to the port area and the farmers market as well as the train station. The Chateau Frontenac, Place Royale, Funeculaire, Citadel, and other tourist attractions are all well within walking distance. The lively Rue St-Jean is only a couple of blocks away. Since Quebec City has an excellent bus system, one can easily go to other parts of the city which are not within walking distance. Parliament is close by and can be seen from the windows of both apartments. One can hear the clip-clop of the horses as they pull the caleches along the street. This is quite a charming place to stay and enjoy all that Vieux Quebec has to offer.

The apartment is highly priced compared to other B&B nearby with higher standard, breakfast included and parking (which is very expensive). The room is small. It was not clean (it was full of dust under the bed) and the linen smalt like it has been lying in the washmachine to long.

I am writing this as we are currently staying in apartment #2. I could not be happier with our accomodations. The location is amazing - just blocks away from everything we have wanted to do in Old Quebec and yet the street is fairly quiet. You can take advantage of the parking pass to beach your car in the Place D'Youville garage, which is about 3 minutes walk from here. For visiting the old city, you don't need a car so it is nice to get it out of the way. The only drawback is that we arrived during a festival where all the roads into Old Quebec were blocked off. That entailed a bit of juggling to get our car unloaded but once that was done, everything went smoothly. With 3 kids, it was key to be able to drop into the condo during the day for lunch or to take a break, and we could do that so easily since the location is so convenient. My son wants me to say that the condo is a bit tight for a family of 5, but I am not bothered by that. We are using the inflatable bed that is available. And the free Wifi is extremely handy. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to this city. And also, it adds to the ambiance to hear the horses clip-clopping by.

I should also emphasize that this is NOT a hotel. You are renting a condo and are pretty much on your own here. The proprietors are available via phone or email, but if you need a lot of handholding, this is not the place for you. I don't want to be bothered by housekeeping so that is why I pick places like this.

Quebec City has many wonderful hotels, but for a stay of more than a couple of nights, my husband and I prefer to have more of a pied-a-terre. As much as we enjoy the City's fabulous restaurants, we also like the option of raiding local markets for great cheeses and other regional products like duck confit, goose rillettes, or boudin, and having intimate little meals on our own schedule. Le Haute Ville was a great discovery for our recent 5-night stay during the famous Quebec Winter Carnival in February. They offer several studio and one-bedroom apartments at very reasonable rates . We tucked into Apartment number 3, which has a bedroom with a queen-size bed, a sunny living/dining room/kitchen and a bathroom with a spacious corner shower. Two closets provided ample space for all of our bulky winter gear and the little kitchen was well-supplied with dishes and cooking utensils and all essential appliances - electric range, mini-fridge/freezer, toaster, microwave and coffee maker. There was a cozy couch (which can be pulled out as a second bed, if you want to squeeze in more people) a nice round table with 4 chairs, and a flat-screen TV with a DVD player. Everything was comfortable and in good working order. The decor blends exposed stone and brick with painted wals. We felt right at home. Located on Ste. Anne, a one-way street, a good part of the "traffic" we heard was the clip-clop of horses pulling caleches up to the nearby dispatch center. The location was ideal for walking to everything, including down the hill every morning to get fresh pastries and bread from Paillard on St. Jean Street. This is not a suitable lodging for someone looking for daily maid service, room service or a staffed reception desk or for those unwilling to climb at least a few stairs or for smokers. However, for travelers seeking a swell home base within the walls of Old Quebec, Le Haute Ville is a wonderful option. There is a phone in the entry hall to contact emergency services or the owners for more towels, etc., but expect to be primarily on your own. The Website for Le Haute Ville has virtual tours of all of the apartments, so you can choose the one that suits you best. TripAdvisor does not allow reviews to include contact information, so if you are interested, you will have to hunt for that yourself, or send me a private message. I would be happy to answer questions about this property or Quebec City in general; I am enthusiastic about both.
