We stayed at the Auberge for five nights in August 2013 and were very happy here--it felt like home. Everything the other reviewers say about Jean-Francoise, Joelle, and Sandie is spot on. We were welcomed as friends and given great advice--Jean-Francoise steered us to Chez Victor's for hamburger dinner (which my kids were craving) and even told us about the special seating area for families at the Cirque du Soleil show (we would not have known about otherwise!).

Of course, a large part of the success of our stay was directly related to our room--we had room "201," the Vieux-Quebec suite, a converted attic that was essentially a small apartment: one big room with a queen bed and two singles. This was perfect for our family of four, and it included a kitchenette with microwave and small refrigerator, as well as a dining table and living area with sofa and TV. After a day walking around the city the comfort and ability to relax in our suite was very much appreciated.

Other positives: clean, and a good, neighborhood location. The Auberge is just a block away from a grocery store; we stocked up on breakfast and lunch/sandwich supplies to save some $$ (we found food expensive all over Quebec province) and also it added to our relaxation experience--to just be able to have some bread and fruit and cheese in our room after a day of sightseeing.

Things to know: no toaster (either in our room kitchenette or the communal kitchen)--I'm thinking that's either a law or just a cultural thing, but my son really wanted a toasted bagel. Also, although the Auberge is definitely walking distance from the old town, it is a small hike. We didn't mind on the way TO the historic area, but after a long day of sightseeing (we were routinely clocking in 7-9 miles per day) our feet weren't looking forward to the walk back. Buses for a family of four turned out to be rather expensive, but taxis weren't, so eventually we just took cabs a few times, especially the two nights that we were in the old town late into the evening. Also, make sure to walk to and from the historic area on side streets, and not Rue Rene-Levesque--much more scenic and interesting to take the other routes.

In addition, there is an Enterprise car rental not far, in the Delta hotel down the street (and they'll pick you up), and one day we rented a car to drive out to the countryside to see Montmorency Falls and the shrine at St. Anne de Beaupre, as well as some other sights. There is a city bus that can take you out there too, but we liked having a car to drive so we could set our own route and agenda. I was pleased that the Auberge was located so close to Enterpirse; this worked out for us.

In sum, a fine stay and we very much liked the Auberge. I know my husband wants to come back and I would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat, as well as recommend it to friends (on TripAdvisor and elsewhere!). Finally, did I mention the hospitality? Don't underestimate the value of an innkeeper with a smile on his face and a warm welcome, as well as a clear desire to make your stay memorable and comfortable. Merci Jean-Francois, Joelle, and Sandie!

Room Tip: The Vieux-Quebec suite was pricey, but for our family, worth it in terms of comfort and overall experience.

We had room 201 which is a self contained flat at the top of the building with a double and 2 single beds and a kitchen and bathroom. The location is great with lots of good places to eat 2 blocks west on Avenue Cartier, and a 15 - 20 minute walk into Vieux Quebec. The staff were all really friendly and full of great advice. Only slight wrinkle was Turning the air con on but we got there in the end.

Staff was very friendly and provided excellent recommendations on restaurants and things to do. Nice location between old town, Rue Cartier, and Rue Saint- Jean so can easily visit the more touristy areas as well as local neighborhoods. Plains of Abraham park is nearby and provides nice walking area. Chez Victor has fabulous hamburgers - don't miss this restaurant! Arrangement that Deux Lions has with Graffiti is a very good deal - food was also fabulous. Rooms are typical of a European-style hotel - a little on the small side but very clean and nicely furnished. We were glad to find a room to accommodate three people (double and twin beds). We would definitely stay here on another trip to Quebec.

Jean François and Joelle were very welcome and the auberge is lovely. Nice room, communal microwave, fridge and small hallway with cd and radio and Plates and coffee for guests to use. Neighborhood is nice, very close to charming Av. Cartier and bus stop to Old City.

Sandie, Joelle and Jean Francois made the stay at the Deux Lions very worthwhile. Couldn't have been more helpful. They have an arrangement with a nearby restaurant which is a very good deal and all their recommendations were spot on. E.g. Chez Victor, also nearby. Upper Jean Street. Cirque de Soleil - which was performing while we were there - free! (sic)

The room we were in was fine (see note). Comfortable bed, no noise problem. Bathroom is small and sink quite small and on an angle but a minor inconvenience.

There is an area near the kitchen where one can get out of one's room and sit and also a balcony for everyone that opens onto the avenue.

It is a solid 20-minute walk to the Old City - we did that a few times to hook up with friends who were staying in a very tiny room on Rue Arteuil. The Deux Lion is near the Plains of Abraham which are good to walk and sit in, overlooking the seaway.

All in all a very worthwhile stay and the staff is unsurpassed in helpfulness and friendliness.

Room Tip: We had the Quebec room which has a small extra area with a table and also a small balcony.
