"My husband and I love to visit Quebec City and have stayed in a variety of accommodations over the years. When we come for more than a night or two we prefer to have more space than a hotel room offers and also kitchen facilities. Apartment 204 in this condo building was perfect for our most recent 4-night stay during February. We found it to be as good or better than presented on-line, with everything in good working order. The renovation of this magnificent old building on rue Saint-Jean in the Upper Town of Vieux Quebec is sympathetic, keeping architectural details like the tall, arched windows while incorporating every modern comfort. The high ceilings and the split level design provide both a feeling of space and grandeur downstairs and coziness (in the bedroom) upstairs. Weather was quite cold during our stay, but it was easy to regulate the thermostats to our chosen temperatures. We enjoyed many of the amenities, from the music channels on the cable TV, the iPod dock, the deep soaking bathtub, the well-equipped kitchen, to the excellent bedding and furniture. This particular apartment includes a parking space in a heated garage about a 5-minute walk from the building--a rarity in Quebec. The building is very secure, with multiple coded and keyed entry points. The location is so central that we never moved our car until it was time to pack up again. Booking, reception and check-out were all handled smoothly, professionally and with amity. For a single or couple seeking a lovely, central business or leisure nest in Quebec City, without need for hotel services, I highly recommend this rental unit. My only caveat is to bring a sleep mask if you prefer total darkness at nigh. Although the bedroom has curtains for privacy and dims nicely, the upper loft remains open to the other windows and there is no way to block out street lights from the upper arches."
