Found this little gem while wandering around the Vieux Cité. Took the room with the view and was pleasantly surprised to see what a wonderful view it was. It looked directly over the river and the Chateau Frontenac was clearly visible just a block down the street. Will book this hotel from now on whenever I am in Quebec City.

Room Tip: The rooms with balconies overlook the St. Laurence and are perfect for sitting out to enjoy the pass...

allocated half basement bedroom, smelt of damp and was dingy, requested upgrade and given bedroom on first floor, not much better - tiny bathroom, overlooked back yard with broken wall, television control broken, again smelt slightly damp. Had to request breakfast from staff in office!
Stayed one night - one night too long.

Room Tip: avoid half basement bedroom

We had a room with a fantastic view on the Saint-Laurence River, the outdoor parking is very practical because it is very close to the hotel, the room was equipped with a fridge, the hotel is quiet because there is very little traffic around being at the dead end of the streets, from the hotel we used to walk around in the old city streets like Saint-John and Saint-Louis for a promenade or to go to the Lapin Saute on Petit-Champlain for a tasty meal, all this makes this hotel an excellent choice even if the breakfast was very basic and the washroom fan noisy. Strongly recommended to make early reservation.

Room Tip: Take a room with a view on the river.

Aside from Chateau Frontenac and Clarendon Hotel, Vieux Quebec is filled wih smaller 2 and 3 star hotels. We decided to stay at Chateau de la Terrasse Dufferin because mainly because of its location. It is literally next door to Chateau Frontenac which is a sight to behold in the daytime and night. Terrasse Dufferin is literally right outside the hotel. There's also a lovely path (Promenade des Governeurs) that leads to the Citadelle. Parking is next door for a minimal fee. It also has a family size room good for a large size group. We highly recommend Chateau Terrasse Dufferin.

Stayed 2 nights at this 1880's hotel right on the water and 100 feet to the Chateau Frontenac and right next to a park. Our room was priced at $160 was a large room, 2 queen size beds plus a couch and balcony and fridge. It was a delight to sit on the balcony overlooking the river with some wine and cheese we had purchased at one of the local stores.
The staff were excellent and pleasant. I found this to be the best value in an amazing location in the old section of Quebec. I would have been happy with this room were it at the Frontenac but at less than half the Frontenac's prices.

Room Tip: The room on the first floor has recently been redone and includes a patio, quite lovely. The third f...

We stayed two nights in room #9. Large windows facing the St. Lawrence and the boardwalk. Tops of the windows were stained glass...beautiful. We had a small kitchen with frig, microwave, coffee pot, living room with TV and pull out queen for the kids, bathroom with tub and master. Our room was air-conditioned, but it was weak.....however, we opened the windows at night for the breeze from the river. Very old building, made the experience charming. The view and location were excelleant...we could just walk out into the action, and watched fireworks from our beds. The staff is very very friendly and accomodating; thier english is not perfect, but it is much better than my french and we got by. Several times they would walk outside with us to point out where something was. Parking was steps away. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: You want to face the river!
