Housed in the former home of a 19th-century prime minister and within view of the famed Chateau Frontenac, Auberge Place D’Armes provides a historic, homey stay in Quebec City. This 21-room inn has some of the most welcoming rooms in town, many with exposed ancient brick paired with modern furnishings and unique pieces. For an indulgent all-out Francophile experience, book the Marie Antoinette Suite, which has 17th-century stone walls, crystal chandeliers and actual pieces from Versailles.
In the Area
Award-winning architectural gem Musée de la Civilisation houses a valuable collection that links past, present and future. Also in the Old Port district, Petit-Séminaire Chapel features trompe-l’oeil painted walls, ceilings and columns. The chapel’s Second Empire interior resembles the Trinity Church in Paris, with white marble altars, red cherry woodwork and ceramic tiled floors. Located at the site where Samuel de Champlain founded North America’s first permanent French settlement in 1608, historic Place-Royale forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage district of Old Quebec. On the wings of a $380 million investment, the historic St.-Roch district has been revitalized into a vibrant neighborhood with plenty of boutiques, cafés and restaurants.
How to Get There
For a wonderful location and a at a most reasonable priced the Auberge Place d'Armes is the RIGHT boutique hotel location to stay at for sure..... Only 100 Yards from the "Hop On / Hop Off" bus, 150 feet from the local tourist information and currency exchange center and 2 to 4 blocks from one of the best walking areas and shopping area of Old Quebec City anyone could find...
Each day, our stay included our breakfast at the 'on-site' restaurant known as "Chez Jules" and our servers, both Simon and Emma...were very personal and attentive
My closing question each time I do a review of a location is... "Would I go back to Auberge Place D'Armes again.. and here is the answere is .. Absolutely YES... Thanks everything and I would give your five stars for our stay.
The staff at Auberge Place D'Armes were very friendly and willing to answer any questions. The breakfast was very tasty. We liked our room, is was cute and clean. The bed sheets could be improved, they were very thin and not soft.
Lovely, quaint hotel in a fabulous location. Walking distance to everything. We stayed in the Marie Antoinette suite, which was spacious and decorated in the old French style. All facilities were great.
Restaurant Chez Jules was awesome, great food and wonderfully friendly service.
We were a little nervous because our French is not at a conversational level, but the check-in went very smoothly -- in English! Our room was up one and a half flights of stairs, and we were thankful that it wasn't up another flight. If stairs are an issue, ask for a room on the bottom level of rooms. The room itself was delightful. The bed, flat screen TV, sitting area with desk, were all first rate. We loved the view from our window too. The jacuzzi tub/shower we only used as a shower, tempting though the tub looked. The toilet and vanity/sink was in a separate room. I can't really do the room justice with this description. It was all very top end, and worked really well. At the same time, the room was cozy and played on the historic building that the auberge is located in.
Very nice stay at Auberge Place D’Armes. Very cozy more on the vintage side, very kind people and food at the little restaurant on the main floor delicious. When you have a chance and want something on the quiet side rather then the big chain hotel try this one really worth it. Location is perfect close to anything and everything in the old Quebec.
The only minor minus that they have is parking, it seems like they are so far but only because of the one way roads but overall not the worst.
Old Quebec is magical and we will always return there for more memories.
