We stayed twice at this hotel, visiting friends in the area; our rooms were very similar. The interior of the hotel is quite charming; the halls have nice decorations, though it's a bit dimly lit. The front desk seems to be staffed 24 hours a day. Rooms are a bit small, but nicely appointed with a desk, chair, and comfortable beds. Bathrooms have separate baseboard heat. Staff during both our trips spoke fluent English as well as Quebecois, and were incredibly helpful. Our only difficulty lay in the thick sheet of ice that formed in the small parking lot. As the ice sheet thawed, it thinned, enabling our car's tire to crash through the ice and form a pothole. The car was stuck and had to be towed out; had we realized this, we'd have unloaded our luggage and parked in the lot just above the hotel. Hotel offers free WiFi and simple breakfasts; the breakfast room can become quite crowded at various times. Coffee is always available, as is ice. Charming, affordable, and friendly.

Traveling all over Canada with my husband and three kids (12-15). We stayed in a Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn Suite which were great. We aren't super fancy so it's not like we need a lot of amenities. Traveling with 5 is tricky so we needed a place that would accommodate us all and this place seemed perfect because it was a suite. It's not in a great area, meaning there is NOTHING close where you can walk to or a short drive to. Old town was about 25-30 minutes away. The place is not nice. It's really dark and old and hasn't been updated in a LONG time. Lots of mold in the bathroom baseboards. I had to go and get toilet paper from the front desk bc we had 1/4 left and no replacement. Air conditioners are window units so our curtain didn't cover the window (unless we didn't use the air conditioner) and so I had to shove the curtain in the top of the air conditioner so people couldn't see us sleeping in our bed. The air conditioners are also VERY LOUD so it was like sleeping in the engine of an old car. The rooms are very dark and dingy and very old. The staff was nice. The rooms are fine in that we had what we needed, but we did not want to be there. We tried to stay out as long as we could so we could come home tired and just go to bed and not spend time in the room. It just wasn't very nice and we did not feel comfortable at all there. I don't think I would recommend this place to anyone I know. Not even my friends that really know how to "rough it". We got up and just left and didn't even take advantage of the breakfast. We were planning on spending the day in Quebec City but instead just wanted to leave and head to Montreal. I do not recommend this place at all.

There was no lights when I got to the hotel. I was unlucky, but the staff didn't help neither. They were rude and didn't provide anything that could help getting into a dark room in the middle of the night. Internet was terrible and the location was not good as well.

I found our rooms dark and dingy and in desperate need of updating. However, we needed a place for 6 of us on a recent trip for a funeral so this fit the bill. Definitely was not impressed with the free breakfast and probably would not go back again.

We recently booked a room at Citadelle, but then had to cancel it. The whole process turned out to be unnecessarily difficult. What we learned through our (and our booking agent's) interactions with the hotel's personnel during those 3 days (!) was that none of them actually spoke any English and only when we called back after finding a person on our end who spoke proper French did we have a productive conversation. This was quite a surprise to see a level of customer service this low in such a popular tourist destination like Quebec City. Would not recommend this place unless you're fluent in French.
