This neighbourhood of the merged city has undergone a renewal over the last few years. In fact, this neighbourhood is no longer the “poor” area of the city. The Nouvo Saint-Roch, the part of the neighbourhood that is enclosed around Saint-Joseph Street, presents a number of trendy boutiques, like Benjo the games boutique, or the Mountain Equipment Coop. Nearby, the Saint-Roch Garden, which has entirely been revitalized, invites you to stop during your day for a picnic in an oasis in the heart of downtown.
A little farther, well sheltered by the surrounding boutiques, the majestic Saint-Roch Church has stood the test of time. At the end of the street is the Barberie, a little and charming microbrewery. At the other end of the street is the Gabrielle-Roy library, where hundreds of books await you. To the north, the new cycling path that runs along the Saint-Charles River will make you feel like you are kilometres from the city. A cinema, a theatre room as well as the Victoria Park complete the attractions of this neighbourhood.
At the Best Western Plus City Centre, you are staying close to the main touristic attractions and Old Quebec.
