My husband ended up needing emergency surgery after a car accident, and was in the QEII hospital for about 5 days. I was fortunate enough to get a room at the Atlantica over the long weekend. It was comfortable, and the night I checked in, there was a lovely desk clerk who was incredibly comforting and encouraging when I desperately needed it. Though I find the hotel quite pricey, I did appreciate the discount they gave me because of the family member in the hospital, along with food vouchers and free parking.
The beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms well stocked and the shower water pressure was delightful. It was a great spot to rest up between hospital visits, and everyone was quite accommodating.
4 stars because though it’s a nice hotel, I do feel it is priced pretty high. I do realize location is everything, and it was well located close to historic Halifax, but even with the discount, it was priced on the high end of my budget. Also, not all of the desk people were the most helpful, but overall my stay was fantastic and a huge help during a trying time!

We’ve been staying with you everytime we are in Halifax. We are never disappointed! Yes alright, the hotel is a bit old but, we are served properly everytime. The rooms are clean and I highly recommend the spinach dip at the restaurant. Yum!

We popped into the city for the night and booked a room at Atlantica. There were four of us and our stay was very enjoyable. Front desk and housekeeping were excellent. Location is great in the city across from hospital and only a short cab ride from the Wharf, Casino or any other attraction you wish to attend.

It was my first journey after i landed in Canada,me and my friend Jeo went Halifax to enquire about a program transfer in Dalhousie University.We reached there on a wednesday night and looked for a nice hotel to stay that night and go to university next day.It wasn't a difficult task for us to find a stay because everyone we asked for it said one answer 'Atlantica Hotel'.We also came to know that it is situated just 1km away from the university,so without any doubt we choose this hotel.At the first glance itself,we understood that why all the people are suggesting it and why it remains among one of the best 4 star rated hotels in Halifax.It is a 232 room hotel but also almost everyone of the rooms were filled.The services they offer are top notch.The hospitality itself is great.There are many employees working but i didn't see any rude ones there.If we ask any doubt or something they are always happy to clear it.Thanks to the main chef and assistants in the kitchen who made delicious food for us.The supper that night included one appetizer,main dish,desert in which the desert was the one i loved the most.After our food,we went to bed,there were two queen size beds one,bathroom,wardrobe.Everything was neat and clean.Arrangements were super awesome.Anyway,we were tired after the long journey,so we went to deep sleep soon.In the morning after our breakfast we left there.Overall,it was a super cool experience and awesome journey which i won't forget.

Went to Halifax for a wedding I wanted a cheaper place to stay so chose this hotel ,
They were really nice about letting me check in early , I was happy about that .
The tv remote didn’t work then the signal went on the tv .went to call front desk only to find the phone didn’t even work .Used my cell phone to call down ,they did send someone up right away ,the maintenance man was more concerned about fixing the phone we told him we didn’t care about that as much as the tv ,he got the tv and remote fixed .
Also I noticed the clock wasn’t working either ,but I got a good deal on this place ,room was clean , front staff nice so it was fine but probably wouldn’t stay again .also charge for parking .
