“Nice location in a charming city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This hotel is a nice boutique located at the gates of old city Quebec. The location is perfect for walking historic old city Quebec. Restaurants-a-plenty and beautiful views everywhere. The parking was a little pricy.

Hello Tom, thank you for your comments. You're right, fantastic location to everything!
The parking fees are approximately the same everywhere in this part of town, we have not increased ours for the last two years. $19 per night is a good average for Old Quebec.
Thank you again!

Very good service. Classical music was playing in the room when we got inside. The room was very nice and clean though a little small. I reserved the Capitole for Xmas with my wife and we both enjoyed. There are two restaurants nearby; an Italian restaurant inside the hotel and a French brewpub next door). Only thing I would recommend if you want to go to the Italian restaurant, reserve when you book the hotel, because the restaurant seems to be quite popular.

Room Tip: Italian restaurant must be reserved early

What a nice review to start the year! Thanks so much for your kind words. Just a little note to let you know that the two restaurants you mentionned, Il Teatro and Brasserie Chez L'Autre, are part of Le Capitole complex and it is always a pleasure for our front desk agents to take rexervations for either one.

This hotel is very charming and perfectly located, close to all quebec city attractions. We had room 207 and 204 which are closer to suites than rooms (including very charming jacuzzis and great views). Service was very warm and welcoming. The bistro next door was excellent. We had an excellent experience in this boutique hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for room 207 or 204.

Thank you for your lovely comments! Those rooms are also some of my favorite since they are both mini suites de luxe, they are cosy and charming and the views which are very different from one another are both beautiful. We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again at L'Hôtel du Capitole!

We travelled to Quebec in September, 2012 and were looking for a charming restaurant for our last night, in the heart of the old town. The food was fabulous, very reasonably priced, the alcohol was cheap and the service exceptional. Our table right next to the road was lovely giving us a nice view of the town and passersby.

I can highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Dear Mrs. Sygrave, thank you for your comments, it's very appreciated that you take the time to write about your experience at the Capitole! Your comments are very appropriated, it is true that Il Teatro is charming and a great value for money. Thank you for your visit!

we booked this hotel using hotel.com and we were not disappointed.
we arrived in quebec city by train and took a taxi to the hotel. it was evening and the hotel was all lite up and busy with people going to the theatre. the building is magnificient. the lobby is small but quaint. a problem is that many people going to the theatre use the hotel entrance instead of the theatre entrance. they should address this inconvenience. the reception was friendly and efficient. they charge a $ 100. to your credit card, in case of expenses charged to your room. this is very strange, i have not seen this procedure in years. we were on the 4th floor (top floor) facing the street. the room had a king bed as requested. the room itself was of good size, with two small round windows looking out to the main street. the bathroom was very small, the width of a bathtub. it also had sliding shower doors that opened to the bedroom.?
it also had one (1) bathrobe???? for 2 people, i guess we had to share.
the bedroom was fairly large, but had no dresser, just an armoire, with 2 shelves at the top, which were small and hard to reach. there was not one but 2 tv in the room. we suggest that you remove one tv and add a small dresser, this would make the room more user friendly. this hotel was probably the quietest hotel in which we have ever stayed. it was clean and well maintained. the staff were very helphful. in fact they allowed us to visit the theatre. the hotel is located next to the vieux quebec, making everything accessible by walking. we would highly recommend this hotel.
we would not recommend the restaurant and will speak more of this on a separate review.

Dear justustravellers, thank you for your very nice and sincere comments. I understand your concern about the hotel's door that was blocked at the moment of your stay. We keep it close from October to April because ot the colder weather, we don't want our guests to be cold while being in the lobby. The $100 that you thought was charged to your credit card was in fact a pre-authorization for that amount. Nothing is charged until the end of your stay, that amount is frozen on your card for the lenght of your stay and then released fully if nothing has been charged to your room. The only one bathrobe is our mistake and I like the idea of transforming the space the TV unit into a dresser.
I hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again at L'Hôtel du Capitole!

Had a great 3 course lunch table d'hote -- had a choice of 2-3 items for appetizer and main, then dessert and coffee. I had the salad + duck confit risotto, and my hubby had the salad + beef tartar. We shared our meals and enjoyed both. I think it was the best coffee we drank in Quebec City. Service was also excellent. Highly recommend dining here!

The hotel makes a first great impression. It's beautiful and the room that has a whirlpool in it is so spacious (totally worth it)!!! If you're a CAA member you will get a discount. If you don't have a CAA membership get a friend of yours to send you a scan/photo of his card and you can use it as well.The staff is incredibly friendly. My girlfriend and I were on our way to PEI from Toronto and she couldn't believe how pretty the city was and when I parked the car and the hotel was located right in the middle of all the streets you'd want to walk by it was awesome. We walked for 6 hours straight walking into little stores, having some French pastries, watching some shows in the street and sitting by the water. Everything was so close you don't need a car. I carried my DSLR and the backpack and it wasn't an issue. We didn't have dinner or breakfast at the hotel, so I can't comment on that. There's Tim Horton's around the corner, cafes as well as restaurants, so you don't depend on the hotel food at all (which I read was expensive). The room has a fridge stocked up with pop, liquor, etc (of course you have to pay) but if you need to put in the fridge any of your stuff you can take some of theirs out.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor and it was super quiet. Our view was to the plaza and it was quiet. Just...
