“Lived up to expectations”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Just a quick one night stay, it was everything that was previous reviews promised . Pretty safe hotel bet for Quebec City

Great Historic Location
Clean and spacious room
Charming decor
Amicable Staff
Free Wifi

Not much else to say for our short 12 hour stay, other then, when I return to QC, the Le Port-Royal will still be on our list

This hotel is located a convenient 5 minute walk from the train station and within walking distance to the upper city (use the funicular to avoid the steps). We enjoyed having a kitchenette since we felt the breakfast was pricey at $12 per person. There is a grocery store a block away and a convenience store in the gas station next door.

The Musee is around the corner and is excellent.

The room was an adequate size and recently renovated but could have done with a comfortable chair. All that was provided was a bistro table and chairs and the bed. we wondered if it was true that Expedia guests get the worst rooms!

After spending significantly less in Montreal for a hotel room that provided much more for our money; we felt the Port Royal was a bit overpriced, but this could be because Quebec City tends to be more expensive.

All in all a good experience and special thanks for the free Internet!

We loved this hotel. The young people who work there were so positive and helpful. Our room was very modern and comfortable. The location could not have been better: it's a short walk to excellent restaurants, the old walled city, the port, museums, shopping, even an amazing farmer's market. Parking was right in front in their own parking lot. A great little hotel in a great city.

We stayed 2 nights in a Superior Room.

The location of the hotel is wonderful, right in the middle of the Old City, a walking distance from everything. Parking was a bit tricky, but we got there during a cycling event where pretty much all the neighborhood was closed, so it was to be expected. We were able to walk around the city and visit a lot, never needing our car. So that's a big plus.

On the downside, we were a little disappointed with the room... We booked a Superior Room, but it didn't feel "superior"... We felt like we were staying in a mid-improvements room. They placed nice furniture around, but everything else felt... raw. There were holes in the walls from previous brackets that were not filled, patches of cement in some places, scratched paint on the wall from moved furniture, etc. It actually had the feeling of an old apartment converted into a hotel room, but without work to make it feel refreshed. Like they said "let's keep it as is and call it modern". It was comfortable, but didn't feel like a superior room in the least.

And if you're easily bothered by noise, exposed piping all around means no noise isolation whatsoever... It wasn't a big problem for us, but it's worth knowing. We had a lot of fun explaining the screaming in the next bedroom to our 2yo...

Overall, it's a great location, kitchen and separate bedroom are nice to have, especially with kids, but the place needs a serious refresh... It felt shabby, despite the higher-end furniture.

I arrived at 6 am to check in at this well-positioned Quebec hotel. I was coming in on the overnight train service from Halifax NS and I did warn them! It took 4 hours to get a room. I cannot blame the reception staff for that, though the reservations staff could offer the option to book a room for early arrival and pay extra.

Putting that aside, the staff were very friendly and eager to give directions. The room itself was enormous, with a kitchenette and king bed. It was very dark in the room. Close inspection showed that everything was clean but needed a paint job. The seal around the bath was pretty shabby and the bathroom needed a bit of paint. Overall nothing to complain about, but time to refresh.

One note: i did ask the concierge about a restaurant about 200m from the hotel and he had not heard of it! I am glad I persisted as the food was excellent!

It's getting pretty hard to fit two adults and two teens (15,12) in one room. The Port Royal offered a large room with a queen bed, a sofa bed and a rollaway at a reasonable price, which is why we chose it. But we got a lot more than that. The hotel is located in the old city; walking distance from the port and the farmers market in one direction, and the tourist attractions and funiculaire to the other direction. The good news is that it is just far enough from the bustling noisiness of the shops and businesses. The Port Royal is conveniently situated right next to Rue. St. Paul and its great cafes and restaurants. The hotel restaurant itself offers a basic (by Quebec high standards) breakfast buffet; but that can be a bit pricey.
The bilingual staff at the hotel is amiable and helpful at all times of day. We got to the hotel around midnight, and our room was waiting for us, with the extra cot quickly brought in. The staff will also provide you with umbrellas, if necessary, and driving directions, if you're going out on excursions.
Don't expect a great view and it is not the quietest hotel. It's located close to a main road, and there was a band playing there over the weekend, which a got a bit loud. Nevertheless, we loved this place.

We had reserved our room for 3 nights, but by the 3rd night my husband didn't want to leave! So we extended our stay. All the staff from the front door bell boy to the bar tender at least pub - were pleasant. Extremely helpful and resourceful!
Oh! And the view from our room of the surrounding city wall, along with the view of main corner with restaurants and statute, was lovely to people watch.

Room Tip: 3rd level, facing rue st Pierre
