Das heutige Tagesziel: Patrick pünktlich auf den Flughafen zwecks Heimreise bringen.
In der Wäscherei des Hotels dürfen wir das Gepäck wägen: 22,5 kg - perfekt!

Een dag waarop we gewoon wat zouden gaan wandelen in downtown Québec en ik de weg zou wijzen. Nu weten 2 vriendinnen van mij dat ik natuurlijk in heel veel dingen goed ben, maar in kaartlezen dus echt niet!
Het begon goed met een steile trap die leidde naar een hoger gelegen gedeelte. Iets wat niet onbelangrijk is om te weten, is dat de …

It was a beautiful day for our visit. The island was draped in a verdant green - ferns, birch trees, fields of yellow flowers - all belied the drama that played out here as more than 4 million people entered Canada looking for a new life, usually bringing with them all their earthly possessions.
In spite of the challenges, the island's mission seemed remarkably successful, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS City Centre/Centre-Ville Quebec City
Good for budget travekers
I stayed there March, 2005. I give it an average rating on tripadvisor because I can't point to anything wrong, but this is not a three star property as classified by Hotwire. It is definitely only two stars. The location is ok, but not ideal for tourists interested in the old city. It is in a business area, next to a bus mall and the main city library. The area is bustling by day, quiet at night. Room was adequate and clean, everything worked, staff was helpful, restaurant was ok. Parking garage was $9 a day but being held up with scaffolding and not secure. I'd recommend this place only for budget travelers who are willing to walk, bus, or taxi to the sights.
Classed a 4* Hotel, The Best Western City Centre lies in the non-touristy part of Quebec City, around 12mins walk from the Via Rail station or 20 mins walk from Chateau Frontenac. The area outside the hotel is a bit of a 'spare change please' hotspot, but do not let that put you off staying here.
I stayed in this hotel for two nights in November. I paid $40 on Priceline - not a bad price! But it should be mentioned that this is an old hotel - old bathrooms, old decoration, lumpy pillows, small pool, no extras, etc. They were remodeling the foyer, so maybe they are updating the whole motel.
Good Hotel at a Great Price
I got a room at the Best Western through Priceline for about $40 US. The Hotel was much better than the 2-star hotel I expected. It has a nice restaurant and pool inside, and sits on top of a parking garage that charges about $9 Canadian per day. The hotel is about 10 minutes from Old Quebec. The only drawback about it's location is that it is located at the bottom of the hill upon which Old Quebec sits, but this can be remedied for the lazy and old by taking a elevator that is present at the end of Rue Corbonne and takes you up the hill for free and in seconds.
I would reccomend the hotel to anyone wishing to enjoy Quebec City. The location is good, the comfort is there, and it can be had for a great price.
We used air mile points
We spent a 3 nights here. We used our Air Mile points so the price was right. The staff were helpful and courteous. Our room was clean and average. Location was okay and since we don't mind walking we found the location okay. It really is only a 10 minute walk to Old Town and 10 minutes walking is good for everyone, even if it is up the hill.After reading the other comments (varied) I was somewhat concerned. We generally only sleep in a hotel and spend our time walking.Great Chinese restaurant across the street where locals eat and there's a little bar beside that where the staff is very friendly and helpful.
I brought my fiance to this hotel and we spent the first four days of March there. I heard about the Escapade package, and because my fiance wanted to visit Quebec, I planned this little getaway. I was afraid that the rooms would be too simple and, funny to say but, too hotel-like. I began to research so many other hotels to the point of feeling confused and stressed because it was out of my price range.
Worth The Money!!
I stayed here this weekend and found it we'll worth the money, clean rooms, friendly staff, nice pool & hot tub, AWESOME BREAKFAST & RESTAURANT!!, you get what you pay for, its a bit of a walk to the old city, take the car
Dishonest and unhelpful
Only been here an hour and very disappointed. They are advertised as having complimentary wireless Internet access on Expedia, but really charge $10/day. Rooms are supposed to be newly renovated, but I guess this was in the 1950's. Worst of all there is a pervasive bad odor in the room and lobby. Have to go find another hotel. Don't make the same mistake I did.
Best or Worst Western?
Very disappointing. The "10 minutes to old town" is more like 20 minutes climbing a hill. The neighborhood is urban renewal in its earliest stages. Immediately behind the hotel is a flop house. We encountered bums and derelicts on our walks nearby. The room pictured as large and spaceous was as small as it could have been and still have two beds in it. The photos with the large seating area do not depict the room you will get. The seating area in our room was a chair, tucked in a corner. The pool is small and only three feet deep. The bathroom had black mold growing on the tile. The lobby is tiny and crowded. The rate ($C 170) far exceeded its value.
Downtown is not as good as the old City but, if you can climb the stairs (it is a good climb), save money. The breakfast is far above average, the rooms are nice, the exercise is best. 93 year olds should not stay here. 20's should and save the cash. I am 60.
