The Bad
Guests complained along a few themes, and there was a sense that some guests were not fond of the minimalist decor and found the rooms somewhat lacking, small and with poor views.

With regard to the rooms there were several complaints: the room was small and too stark without a cozy feel, desks were too small, the bathroom was dimly lit with not enough light for applying make up, AC unit was loud, an open-concept shower with no shower curtain or full-size glass door allowed for a wet bathroom floor, no in-room coffee machine, cups or ice bucket in the room, uncomfortably hard mattress, low to the ground bedframe, and a few guests could not find or locate the drawers or closet.

Some guests thought the hotel was a bit far to Old Quebec on foot, especially since it required and uphill walk.

A few guests found the restaurant a little pricey and the service slow.

Some guests complained of slow service at the front desk at times with only one person there and a line up of guests wishing to check in or out.

Parking was occasionally a frustrating experience and guests did not like paying extra for it. One guest explained that the vehicle drop off area was small for the valet service and it could block the underground exit for guests who were self-parking and wanted to leave.
