Vieux-Québec has plenty of reasonably priced accommodation options, even as prices have gone up in recent years. The only downside to staying there is the difficulty in finding cheap parking – expect to pay $25 a day for a spot in a garage. Basing yourself outside the city walls is worth considering, too – the rates are usually better, parking is cheaper and there are some good choices within easy walking distance of the old city. As Québec City is one of Canada’s prime tourist destinations, try to reserve in advance, particularly during the summer months and the Carnaval in February.
