My partner and I spent 2 nights here. The room was clean and cozy. Although a little spartan on the decor side, everything seemed freshly painted and well maintained. Breakfast included coffee, bagels, toast, and fruit. At times, you could smell the hot tub (chlorine) throughout the hotel, but it wasn't that big a deal. Overall quiet. Never heard tv,... More

Located just two blocks from the Main Street in Old Quebec, Rue St Jean. We booked the suit 330 and it was a very nice apartment with bedroom, living room and kitchen, as well as nice bathroom. Modern and well kept. Breakfast was included, nothing fancy: coffee, bagels, juice and fresh fruit. The hotel has a sauna and steam bath,... More

Very clean - Very comfortable - Very hospitable! We stayed there in mid summer - had a blast! We brought our dog and they were perfectly happy to accommodate that. They also were able to handle our car. It is attached to a full sauna that was expansive in its services, clean and well maintained. It is right across the... More

We had a great time in the junior suite, which features a spacious comfortable sitting room, and a large bathroom and bedroom. And we heard the sauna was very popular with the single guests. The owner is very warm and welcoming. He went above and beyond when he personally drove us to the train station! We would definitely stay here... More

The junior suite is very well furnished with a soft bed, lots of storage, beautiful art & design, large functional kitchen, modern furniture and TV, and a smallish bathroom. It was a joy to return here after a day's full of touring, walking and site seeing the old city, to this hip room. The breakfast is basic bagel and coffee... More

Warm welcome & assisted with baggage to room. Not sure we got the junior suite we paid for, but was a good sized room with sofa / leisure area. Nice and clean, good air con along with ceiling fans. Reasonable selection of toiletries. Comfy bed & despite being above a gay sauna, was relatively quiet. Great location in the old... More

The service at this hotel is excellent, from arrival to departure. Street parking is extremely limited, so they parked my car for me. Carried my bags to my room (and again upon leaving). Very helpful front desk. Location couldn't be better, in Vieux-Quebec. The hotel is across the street from Artillery Park, and a short stroll to St Jean and... More

overall excellent. the place is very quiet and within walking distance (10~15 minutes) of many, many major sights and restaurants. my room actually had a bit of view of the old city, which was nice. as others have said, it's not really cruise-y if you don't want it to be. but it has everything if you are into that kinda...

I was there during the Labor Day week-end, in fact I spent only one night in Québec City having gone on a whim on Sunday morning. Rooms were all booked in the inn part but there was many roomettes available in the bathouse section. For a gay person just wanting to spend a night on the cheap side this is... More

Hippocampe's main advantage is the location, which is a 10 minutes walk up from the bus & train station in Quebec City, and it's in the old town area just the back of Rue St Jean. The room is of decent size, nicely designed, with comfortable bed & pillows. This is not a B&B inn, so no breakfast is given.... More
