I stayed for one night at ALT hotel in Quebec City. Eric, the man at the counter gave us exceptional service. He went above and beyond, and we really appreciated it. We brought our little 10 lbs dog all the way from San Francisco. The hotel greeted us with 2 dog bowls and some treats for her, which was very... More

It has been a terrible experience. There was no parking under the hotel even if it shold have been and the parking suggested by the receptionist resulted not allowed (I've got a sort of fine I still have to understand if I have to expect the bill at home). Then all the receptionists insisted telling us the time of the... More

Dear Lucas, I am sorry to hear that the memory you will keep from our hotel is not as positive as we would like it to be. We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced about the parking. Having our guests’ safety in mind, we needed to make major repairs to the structure of the parking which affected the number of... More

The property is modern, well maintained and quiet. Beds are comfortable. Wifi is reliable. There is no restaurant on the premises, but several are close by, and you can order room service for breakfast by leaving the card on your door the night before. They have a relationship with an haute cuisine bistro for other meals. The service is cordial,... More

I usually stay at the Holiday Inn Express when in Québec City. I decided to give the Alt hotel a chance mainly for the location. I was a little disappointed by my room. No view to speak of from my window, and the aircon was Noisy. I found the room dark, and cold. There is no gym, which is an... More

Dear guest, Thank you very much for sharing your feedbacks. On your next visit, I suggest you request a room with a light color of wood as it might suit your preferences better. The air conditioning is usually very quiet as it is a central system. We might have a maintenance to do, knowing your room number (or name and... More

The rooms in this hotel are quite nice. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We were fortunate to have nice weather and the walk to Laval University was about 25 minutes, which always improves my mood to be able to walk places. And one in our group spent a lot of time at the extensive malls across the street.

Nice Zen hotel with a very reasonable price. Nice customer service, newspapers, wifi, etc...There are new units in Montreal and Toronto across Canada. My preferred place to stay Très bon hotel, genre Zen, endroit tranquille et restos autour, tout près d'un immense centre d'achat !

Slept 2 nights, affordable price, just beside the St-Foy shopping centre and around 20 minutes by car from Downtown "Vieux Quebec". À lot of restaurant near by the Hotel. Room was perfect, clean, free wi-fi, bed comfortable.

i have had several trips now to Qubec in the Boulevard Laurier and over the years have stayed in many along Laurier. But this trip I decided to return to The Alt because clearly for me it is the best. The outside does not look much but where it wins hands down are the rooms, Great comfortable room for working...

Pet-friendly hotel is not just a word, the hotel managers and stuff REALLY like the pets. We have been travelling with our German shepherd, did not have any problem even with that size dog. On the light side: - Free valet parking was a pleasant surprise after 9 hours on the road, we just left car at the hotel entrance... More
