Great location and very nice apartment. Warm and tons of space!
Appartement très bien situé (le Vieux-Québec est à quelques minutes de marche). Cuisine bien équipée et parking (payant) à quelques mètres de l'immeuble. Parfait pour loger 4 personnes. Petite note: les lits mériteraient une "cure de jeunesse" et la communication avec l'hôte mériterait d'être revue. Je n'ai eu aucune réponse à mes questions (concernant la literie, les serviettes et le parking).
Je recommande cet appartement , il est bien situé calme , spacieux et pres du vieux Quebec.
La vue sur Quebec est imprenable . J'y retournerai et l'accueil est chaleureux.
Merci à Gilles.
Response from Gilles:
The apartment was central and conveniently located in a heritage building. Parking is right next door and reasonable at $15 per day. Although the place is advertised to sleep up to 6, it's really best suited to 4. Our biggest problem was that the apartment is in the basement of an old building with poor insulation and very drafty, and very very cold in the winter. We were short 3 blankets (they didn't have any more) and no space heaters were provided. The pull-out couch mattress is very thin and uncomfortable, and although adequate, futons on the floor were very cold. Gilles and his wife were prompt with communications, but limited with resources.
All in all, I'd say the accommodations are adequate for 4 people in the summer/spring.
Nice apartments in a cute area.
The apartment was very clean, comfortable and just as described. Well situated and perfect location for walking to the old city or to the Carnaval. The hosts were helpful in giving restaurant/local info and recommendations. They have very strict rules in regards to booking which are stated clearly, so make sure you aren't in need of any flexibility (I made an error and requested a change within 20 minutes of booking 3 months in advance and was denied the request and paid for two nights but stayed only for one. Check out is at 11am and we were briskly rushed out and had the door shut on us at 10:55 while putting our shoes on which left a bad taste.) great location and very clean apartment.

just like your photo it doest mean nothing.try somewhere else! Airbnb has a lot to offer!
I recommend Mr. Gilles. His apartment is well maintained and very near to the old city. He was helpful suggestions and of course the rates were very attractive. You have all that you need as for bedding, linen, dishes, washing machines, etc.
My wife and I stayed at Gilles place for a weekend in February during Winterlude for our one year anniversary. The place was very easy to find and very close to all downtown sites including Old Quebec. Overnight parking is next door and it appeared that Gilles has some sort of arrangement for a discount when you park there. (By the way, parking attendant is present all night). The apartment we stayed in was perfect for what we wanted. The refrigerator and stove worked great, the kitchen was complete (with utensils, and cookware only). The shower was awesome as well, during the winter, the hot showers were very welcome when you come in from the cold. The bed was more than comfortable. I would definitely go there again and recommend to my friends. Gilles, himself, was very informative on the area and had very helpful hints on where to go to visit or where to go to eat.
Great place and Quebec is a beautiful city.
Good location. Small apartment but clean.
Had a great stay at Gilles' apartment on St. Augustin. Location is wonderful--close to beautiful Old Quebec, all the shops on St. Jean, and the Quebec conference center; everything was walkable distance even in the bitter cold! Apartment was clean and spacious for a downtown space. Nice kitchen space for cooking some of our own meals, and the washer and dryer were definitely helpful, as our luggage was lost at the airport! I would definitely stay at one of Gilles' apartments if I come back for another visit! Thanks!
