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

I can't say enough positives about this hotel! Firstly, the location doesn't get any better-not only is it in old town, so close to all the sights and great restaurants, it is adjacent to a historic park on a quiet street. That alone made the room rate good value. Add to that a clean and well appointed room & common... More

We stayed in a 2nd-floor ultra clean & modern suite with bedroom & living room, with welcome air conditioning. Free Krups coffee and orange juice in the communal kitchen was a nice touch, something you find in the 4- and 5-star hotels. Staff was very friendly and spoke both English and French fluently, which was a relief to traveling Americans.... More

This was my second visit to Hotel Hippocampe and won't be my last, god willing. The hotel is located in the old city just a block from restaurants and shops. The hotel contains a sauna with steam and hottub and very friendly customers. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. I had a small suite with living room and bedroom... More

My partner and I just spent a wonderful night at this hotel. The rooms were clean and modern with all the needed amenities. We took a Regular+ room which had a private bathroom with a great spacious shower. The room was quiet and well soundproofed. Coffee and Orange Juice were complementary. There is direct access from the hotel rooms to... More

My partner and I stayed here for two nights on a visit to Quebec City. The "Cosy" room was bright and clean, and the staff at this gay hotel are superb. They went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay! The hotel connects to a gay sauna, so is quite convenient if you're looking for a... More

this small gay hotel is conveniently located within the walled old city, steps across the street from a national park on the walled fortifcations. the entire old city is within easy walking distance. while the exterior of the building is charmingly old, the rooms are all strikingly contemporary and updated. the rooms on the upper level are desribed as apartments...
