Le C3 Hôtel – art de vivre
One of the most unique hotels in the city, Le C3 is a smaller establishment with around 25 rooms. It’s fittingly located directly across from the Museum of Fine Arts at 170 Grande Allée West. As the name implies this hotel is creatively decorated and filled with art. There’s a rooftop patio from which you can take in the surrounding neighbourhood and enjoy the built-in firepit that many guests use to roast marshmallows in the summer.

Hostels are a great way to stay in a good location for an affordable price. One of the best in the city is QBEDS, located at 625 Grande Allée East. The building itself is over a century old and uniquely decorated, and the location means you’re within walking distance of all the major attractions. There are some private rooms available, but if you’re comfortable sleeping in a shared room then no hotel will come close to this price.

Le Monastère des Augustines
One of the most interesting places to stay in Old Quebec is Le Monastère des Augustines. Located at 77 Rue des Remparts, it was a real monastery, and Augustinian Sisters still live there to this day! It’s not the fanciest place. The rooms are actually quite plain and basic, as one might expect at a monastery. It’s comfortable though, and staying there is an experience. Although the rooms themselves are very simple, outside in the hallways are beautiful old paintings.
