About Le Monastère des Augustines

Housed in an exquisitely restored monastery, Le Monastère des Augustines offers guests leading edge contemporary design and comfortable accommodation in the very heart of Old Quebec.

Rooms are available in both “authentic” and contemporary versions, with the authentic rooms paying respect to the original monastery on the site and the contemporary rooms featuring the very leading edge in design.

A guest lounge with TV and free Wi-Fi is available upstairs, since these are intentionally absent from the rooms, so as to enhance the contemplative experience.

The in-house restaurant prides itself on its health conscious menus that include not only regular meat and poultry dishes, but inventive raw and vegetarian options as well.

Le Monastère des Augustines is in the very heart of Old Quebec, so merely stepping out of the front door one is immersed in the culture and history of the city. As for traditional attractions, the Citadel is approximately 1,000 yards from the hotel and the Museum of Civilisation just 700 yards.

Positive Reviews

Tranquil and serene atmosphere

Guests who had booked in here for something of an urban retreat seemed happiest of all. Many described the atmosphere of the hotel as true to its monastic origins, with a sense of tranquillity that many greatly appreciated.

Excellent location

Those guests who wanted to explore a bit, rather than wait for enlightenment to descend from above, loved that they were right in the heart of Old Quebec. They said that it would have been difficult to choose a better position from which to explore the street life and nightlife of the vibrant Old Town.

Exceptionally comfortable beds

A simply remarkable number of guests reported that the beds were “out of this world” comfortable. It seems that the bed buyers here have managed to achieve the near impossible by selecting a mattress with truly broad appeal.

Negative Reviews

Room rates not very monastic

Guests who had booked one of the “authentic” rooms, which aim to pay tribute to the buildings monastic origins, were sometimes in two minds as to what to think about them. They confirmed that the rooms were indeed very sparse, but that the room rates were anything but. They seemed to feel that a sparse monastic-type room should have a much lower room rate.

The bathrooms are shared

A number of guests were clearly surprised to discover, only on arrival, that they would have to share the bathrooms with other guests. Considering the room rates charged, many felt they really ought to have had a private en-suite bathroom.

No issues reported

So far, no recent negative opinion has been expressed by guests about this hotel.
