The location of the auberge is perfect to explore the sights of Old Quebec. Many of the major sights are within easy walking distance, as are oodles of shops, artisans & restaurants. Steps to the Chateau Frontenac, Musee du Fort & funicular.
Our 1st night was in Room 22, on the 2nd floor, overlooking the pedestrian street below. Smaller than I imagined, but nicely decorated and well kept. The shower/tub were practically right beside the queen-bed, which I thought was odd (more on that in a sec)...I guess there wasn't orginally a tub in the room (?) and it was added later. A well appointed, comfy room, albeit a little unique.
Unfortunately, the old plumbing got persistently noisy during the night, and since the tub was right beside the bed, it did interrupt our happy slumber. When I brought this to the staff's attention in the morning, we were immediately given the best suite at the auberge for our remaining 2 nights, without any hassle or even the suggestion of that happening...at no extra charge to us.
*This was amazing service! Thank you!*
Our upgrage room (Room 9) was on the 3rd floor: Quite large with cathedral ceiling and exposed wood beams, 3 windows with unobstructed views of the Chateau Frontenac across the park. 2 king-beds, big bathrm w/jacuzzi tub and sep shower. Electric fireplace, leather sofa & lounger, flat screen TV & small kitchen in-room too. A very comfortable suite.
The restaurant downstairs (Le Pain Beni) was good as well and breakfast (cont'l) is included with the price of the room.
The service, room, vibe of the auberge along with its location tempt me to rate this hotel a "5", however, it does lack any extra amenity, such as an elevator, fitness room, pool, tennis court, etc. So while it's great for what it is, it is officially rated a "3 star" accom.
Overall, we were very pleased with our 3-night stay and would recommend this auberge to couples looking for a quiet, intimate get-away at a warm, charming, small hotel in the heart of Quebec City.
