“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here on one of our two nights in Quebec City. Although the price was more than we usually pay for hotel room, being within walking distance to everything there is to see in old Quebec was great. We got there early and given our room and parking so we could get right to visiting and our parking was covered on the next day as well until we left at 5:00pm. The room was beautifully furnished with special attention to detail and felt very luxurious. Would definitely return someday.

Great location, deluxe continental buffet breakfast and attentive service are always included.

Hotel Le Germain is truly a lovely boutique hotel in the lower old town of Quebec City. The service was wonderful, as was the location of the hotel. The lobby was elegant and chic, decorated in dark colours with an eye for detail, huge windows and very high ceilings. The front of the hotel used to be a vegetable and fruit market, and the back was a bank (we were told), accounting for the beautiful architecture of the interior and exterior of the building. Our room, too was spacious and pretty with a nice view into the old town; shops and restaurants within sight and steps. The complementary breakfast served in the lobby was excellent, as was the delicious coffee and good selection of quality teas, available 24 hours in the lobby, free of charge. Overall we highly enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again during our next visit to Quebec City!

Charming comment... thank you.
Do you know we also have a few properties in the Toronto area, for your out of town visitors or just for yourself without having to drive long distance... I have to admit though that our lobby has a special charm, to go with the historic district.
We will be happy to have you back on your next visit.

While we're obviously here for the sight seeing, the room was so luxurious and comfortable that we didn't want to leave the room. The bed was so soft and the pillows and bedding so comfy. The bathroom was stocked with all the needs. Everything one would need all in this lovely room. Convenient to the sights. Even the check in was easy for this non-French speaking couple. Dinner was a snap as Phillip brought out a stack of menu and made some excellent suggestions. Then he surprised us by offering to make reservations for us. Excellent service! Great trip and stay in Quebec City!

again came back to hotel Germain Dominion in Québec . It is like being home but having all services around you. Hotel lobby is very friendly , we had drinks sitting on the couch and enjoying a great conversation with people from Chicago.

Location is the best , walking streets around are unique in North America , makes the small Champlain so enjoyable. We had dinner following hotel recommendation at Quai 19 ,a wonderful experience , evening was lovely makes Québec city a destination experience no one forget

We had a 4 night stay at this hotel and it exceeded all expectations! From the minute we were dropped off, the staff couldn't have been more helpful! Our room was ready early and was perfect (love the Nespresso machine in the room). The suggestions (tours, places to eat, visit, etc...) from the staff were outstanding! A friendly, smiling staff member greeted you everywhere - everyone seemed to love working at this hotel A special thank you to Veronique and Annie-Karine for their recommendations!

We stayed two nights in August 2014. Room, service, and especially the included breakfast were outstanding. However, a parking space and Canadian taxes raised the already premium price by over $125 CAD! That said, we would return.

Dear guest,

Terrific comment, but please, if we made a mistake, we would gladly correct it. We charge $23 CAD per night for parking + approx. 15% for taxes. I invite you to take a close look at your invoice and do not hesitate to contact us if more has been charged, we would then credit you back.

That said, we would love to have you staying with us again.

Everything about this hotel is classy. The staff, particularly Phillipe, were all very helpful and friendly. We followed Phillipe"s recommendations and had several excellent dinners. The included hotel continental (European style) breakfast is outstanding. There are espresso machines in the rooms, but we never had to use it because the cappuccino machine at breakfast was so excellent.

The hotel interior designer did an outstanding job and there are many nice details and amenities throughout the common areas as well as the guest rooms and bathrooms.

I had originally wanted to stay at the Chateau Frontenec where I had stayed before, but the room prices were ridiculous. I'm glad it didn't work out. I recommend the Germain-Dominion without hesitation.
