Generally, I prefer to spend less on airfare and hotels and more on gifts, attractions, food, and things to do. I chose Hotel du Nord for many reasons, one of them including its cost. The rooms are clean and very fairly priced. The staff are mostly bilingual and very willing to help out.
The rooms are clean, but a tad bit smaller than more Queen sized bed rooms in the USA. The bathrooms and shower are small, also, but not so small as to cramp your ability to shower; I would not suggest taking a bath, though, unless you are a child. As you probably know, it can get very cold in Quebec City, Canada and when I was here it was around 4 degree FARENHEIT and the contrast between the warmth in my room and the coldness of outside would cause condensation to form on the windows and make big puddles on the windowsills.
Public transportation to downtown or "Old Quebec" is easy and very cheap; you literally just walk across the street to the bus and take it all the way down. That being said, it is time consuming and unless you have a car or money to burn on taxis I would stay closer to Old Quebec. If you have a car, feel free to stay here because parking is free and parking in Old Quebec is not that expensive.
The continental breakfast is more than adequate, with lots of coffee, orange juice, and milk. There are also waffles, various toasts, with caramel and maple syrups, and yoghurt. There's not much in the way of protein, but it tastes good.
One of the things I REALLY liked about this place was the sleep quality I could get. There were ample pillows and the hallways were quiet at night and in the morning. There were no honking horns in the middle of the night or noisy people walking the street, it was perfect for sleep.
