“A Lucky Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We very much enjoyed our stay here. We had the executive room which was roomy enough for two and all of our "stuff". Aside from the owner, who greeted us with a litany of all the things we were going to be paying him for, the staff is very helpful and friendly. Even the owner lightened up later on, but he wasn't interested in becoming close friends.. That's okay..we weren't either.

There were some comments made by earlier reviewers about the decor. Since this is really more a small hotel than B and B the decor is different, but it is attractive and, after a while, you're kind of glad everything doesn't smell like lavender.

There are three things that make this a very good place to be. First of all, its location. This Auberge sits directly across the street from a beautiful park, the Plains of Abraham, which is also the location of the art museum. You could spend hours walking there, enjoying the scenery. It is also about a block and a half from Avenue Cartier, a lively little street filled with restaurants and shops. You can choose to have breakfast here or to go out on your own. We enjoyed having ours at a sidewalk cafe here on Avenue Cartier or going to the bakery for something delicious and eating on the terrace.

If you're a walker, you CAN walk all the way into Vieux Quebec, but we're here to tell you, it's not a stroll. You can also catch a city bus nearby which will take you in.

It is also located on the Grand Allee, which has been likened by some tour books as Quebec's "Champs-Élysées". Unfortunately for us, it was under construction during our stay so we spent our evenings on Avenue Cartier.

The second thing is the terrace...a rooftop patio that is open to guests which is a great place to relax, picnic or just spend some quiet time.

The third thing is the beds. This is absolutely the most comfortable bed ever. If I could take it home, I would.

We felt like some of the other reviewers that it was expensive, but I think that "tourist Quebec" is expensive overall. We would recommend Auberge du Quartier.

Room Tip: The executive room is a nice size. If not the executive, choose one of the upper floors rather than...

My wife and I wanted to spend a week in Quebec city after a hectic summer. Unfortunately we left the booking until the last minute and most locations were booked. I got the name of this hotel on a recommendation from the owner of the top rated B&B on Trip Advisor and was able to get a room basically at the last minute. I would say if this hotel was smaller it would be classified as a B&B as it's not a hotel in the traditional sense. It's in an old home that I believe was the residence of a doctor in the day so the main floor living quarters has been converted into the reception area and the living/dining room converted for the continental breakfast. Our room was in the basement and was referred to as the "Cocoon Room". The room was cozy and adequate size with a comfortable queen size bed. The bathroom has an enclosed stand up shower. There is also cable TV in the room with French and English service.We spent our days out and only used the room to sleep and get prepared for the day but I would have to say it's not a room you want to spend a rainy day in as the only window is small and high and looks out to a brick wall. Again comfortable but not a room I would want to spend hours in. The reception on our arrival was quite pleasant. Now if you have a room on the upper levels there's a lift to get up with your luggage but we had to use a narrow twisting staircase down and if you have a lot of luggage it will be awkward and tedious with many trips. There is no lobby to sit in on those rainy days however there is a terrace on the upper floor that I didn't get a chance to use. Parking is provided at an extra charge but you may not get to park on the property and need to park about a block away in a different lot. The hotel is located conveniently close to a number of good restaurants and bars and is located outside the wall of old Quebec and almost across the road from the famous Plains of Abraham.We left the car parked for the week and walked everywhere. It's about a 20 to 30 minute walk to the Chateau Laurier Hotel which is pretty well the centre of Quebec and from there more walking will get you to all of Old Quebec and the sites, shops and tours. The one thing I would say could be upgraded is the continental breakfast. It's about $9.00 but did cover my wife and me so the price is good and for that they have yogurt, canned fruit, granola, various breads to toast orange juice and coffee. We actually found a spot about 5 minutes away where we got a hot and more comprehensive breakfast. All in all I would recommend the hotel as it has a good location, is clean and quiet and friendly.

Room Tip: Try for a room on the upper levels.

My husband visited Quebec City for two days (August 21-22) and chose to stay at the Auberge du Quartier based on TripAdvisor reviews, which were right on target.
We stayed in Room #205, an 1850 Superior room. There were no rooms on either side of us but there were rooms across the hallway (odd configuration due to an old building). It was quiet except for footsteps above us on the second night.
Here are the positives: the staff (I can't say enough about how helpful and friendly they were), the cleanliness of the room, the room decor, attention to detail, and the location.
Here are the negatives: the location (although it was perfect for us to be a 15-minute-walk away from the hustle of the historic walled city, we walk daily. It could be too far for someone who has mobility issues.) and the street construction which was extremely noisy during work hours. It also provided a heavy layer of dust on us when we tried to walk that street (and we later discovered the same was true for our car!).
Another comment about the location, it was a 3-5 minute walk to a street lined with a wide range of restaurants frequented by locals. We ate there the first night and had fun "getting the feel" for life in Quebec City!
Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay.

Traveling with my husband, 1-year old and father, we stayed in the 1850 suite, which was very spacious and the perfect design for our group. There is one big bedroom with a king sized, veeeeery comfy bed, tv, fireplace and a pull out couch and a separate little bedroom with a full bed and TV. All the furniture, carpet, etc was in perfect condition and extremely clean. I was impressed by how polished this hotel was for its age and rating. I didn't expect so much for 2.5 stars (but the suite was over $200 CAD per night, so not cheap - but worth the cost). Aside from the room, there isn't a whole lot of space in the reception area or elsewhere to lounge outside of the room, which was fine for us.

At first I worried that we should have stayed closer to older and more touristy part of Quebec City or at the Hilton across from the conference center where the meeting I was there to attend took place, but it is well within walking distance, and the quiet location with big trees, beautiful homes and buildings and proximity to the park was well worth it. Old Quebec was so packed full of tourists and busy that it was nice to get away. The only drawback was all the construction going on everywhere - including right outside the hotel...It made what would be quiet walks really loud, but construction seemed to be the going on everywhere.

I'd definitely stay here again.

We had two days to explore Quebec City and this was the perfect place to base ourselves. The room wasn't overly big but it was modern, well appointed and very comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and the roof-top terrace was ideal to enjoy a coffee in the morning sun.

Basically, we were in the Auberge mostly for sleeping and breakfast only, which was probably a good thing since there are no amenities at this hotel. We arrived during a time of construction of the main street Grande-Allee which forced us to do a couple of detours before arriving to destination (we walked from the train station and oh boy, so many hills and stairs to get there!).

The Superior 1850 room was quite small, the picture of the room on the website is a little trick of the eye. You will literally live out of your suitcase as there is no dresser or night stand with drawers. The bathroom was a little ackward because of the angle of the toilet, when you open the shower door, you hit it, and bubbles come out of the drain in the bathroom floor when you take a shower (a shower that is a littlesmall).

The bed was very comfortable and the linen were excellent. The light over the desk was in an ackward position since it is placed in front of the tv.

Nice air conditioning with remote control.

The continental breakfast is a little overpriced and a little monotonous after a couple of days. Same fruits, same juice, same cereals. No eggs nor pancakes... Even though breakfast was not officially served until 7h30 am, we were always downstairs early and greeted warmly by Pierre. Not only did we enjoy our conversation with him but his knowledge of the city was really appreciated. He was the best part of our stay at the auberge. Although there is no available kitchen or restaurant, coffee and tea is always provided.

The staff was very helpful and polite when we needed them.

Don't forget your keys because the front door is locked at 10h00.

Overall, if your do not mind walking and you really only need a place to sleep, this is a quaint little hotel in a quiet part of the city with buses very close and a nice little street (Cartier) with restaurants and boutiques. The plains of Abraham are acros the street.
