Auberge Place D'Armes Quebec City Reviews
Quaint Hotel in Perfect Location Nov 11, 2010
The location of the Auberge Place d'Armes is excellent. It's in upper, Old Quebec, directly across the street from the Chateau Frontenac and the funicular down to the lower city.
Our 1st room was rather small, but with a nice big bed and exposed brick walls. Unfortunately, it was an odd set-up as only a curtain separated the bed from an enormous bath tub and sink. That wasn't great, but to make matters worse, the pipes pinged and creaked all night, which was a real bummer. The toilet was housed in what clearly used to be a closet in the room. I went down in the early morning to the reception desk and moaned a bit.
This was handled very professionally and with apologies, and we were moved for our next 2 nights. For the same price, we were given a suite in the newer part of the hotel. It was huge, with 2 king-sized beds in a cow motif, complete with horns! There was an electric fireplace, big flat-screen TV, sofas and a kitchenette (sink/ counter/ microwave/ irioning board, etc.) The bathroom was big with heated floors, tub and separate shower. Modern facilities. Impressive. A far cry from our 1st room.
The restaurant downstairs, named "Le Pain Beni", was good for 1 dinner and breakfast. It was OK. There was also a Parisienne style awning and cafe out front.
However, there are A LOT of restaurants in the immediate area, and lots of the old town's sites are within walking distance. Like I said, it really IS in an excellent location.
So, if you're looking for a small, quiet, mid-range boutique hotel in Old Quebec...that you can walk to all the sites from...and be surrounded by shops and restaurants: Give Auberge Place d'Armes a look!
