“Cannot wait to return”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

Beautifully restored boutique hotel. The common spaces are wonderfully equipped (love the Franke cappuccino machine!), and the staff is very helpful and kind. We had a discount from a travel site, but in no way were we short-changed or treated differently, as many hotels do. Our room was spacious and lovely, with a great view of the city. The location is also very convenient--just outside the old city, close to transportation, and near lots of antique stores and cafes. We will be back!

I will make sure to communicate your wonderful comments to our staff. Since you mention you will be back, do not hesitate to specify your preferences on your next reservation as we have different views and room types in two separate buildings – one with 8 floors (vintage modern design) and the other one with 5 floors (classic contemporary design). Welcome back!

This is exactly what we aim for: great service in a pristine location, with comfortable guestrooms and common areas. Quebec City is beautiful in all seasons. On your next reservation, do not hesitate to mention you have stayed with us before so we can assign a room according to your preferences. Hope to see you again soon.

This is an ok hotel, the rooms were nice but for the money I was expecting more, I found the parking too expensive,20$ a day and this is besides the price you paid for your room, is a bit pricey. Besides that, when you walk in the lobby, there's stains on the carpet, it needs to be upgraded. The breakfast in the morning which is included in the room price was ok, there was a good selection of food and beverage but I didn't like the way the breakfast area was set up, it's big tables which accommodates several people, so basically you have to sit with people you don't really know.

Dear guest, I am very sorry we did not meet your expectations and thank you very much for your comments. I have to say that we get a lot of compliments for the warm set up of the lobby and breakfast in the morning. You are right, we have large communal tables but also more intimate seating. Breakfast can also be delivered to your room if you prefer privacy. As far as parking, we are located in an area where parking space is very limited and we feel very lucky to have some. We also offer valet assistance to make sure it remains available to our guests.

I absolutely love this hotel. We stayed her for 1 night in April 2011 and loved it so much that we are going back next weekend for another romantic night away. The front desk staff are wonderful and very helpful. They have menus of many of the areas restaurants to help you choose where to eat and will take care of your reservations for you.

The lobby: The fireplace is enormous and very welcoming. We relaxed with a coffee in front of this fireplace for a long time.

The room: Loved all the details and the bed was extremely comfortable.

The continentail breakfast: AMAZING! More than enough food and everything was delicious. We still talk about the croissants and the chocolatine to this day.

The location: For us it is perfect. A little walk away from the main tourist part but we love that its a short walk to our favourite dinner spot: Le Charbon steakhouse.

Stay at this hotel when you are in Quebec city and you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: I prefer the Vintage Modern rooms because of the layout and the flat screen tvs.

Returned here for the second year in a row and love this hotel. Everything about it is fantastic. Breakfast was wonderful, the help yourself coffee and tea in the lobby lounge was wonderful after a day in the cold exploring. Staff are great and very helpful. Rooms are large, clean and beautifully designed.

Hotel Le Germain-Dominion never disappoints! It is a gracious and lovely small hotel, away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas of Quebec. Breakfast is generous and delicious. The rooms are wonderfully contemporary with lovely linens and furniture - a chocolate on your turned-down bed at night and a weather forecast card on the night table add a special touch. The 24-hour availability of the cappuccino/espresso machine in the lobby, along with the fireplace and comfy furniture make it so inviting and a delightful after a day of exploring or any time. We give it an A+ and can't wait to go back!

My Partner & I visited Quebec for Carnaval and wanted a small hotel experience. This hotel fit the bill and while in the Lower Town and out of the way of the main Carnaval events on the Plains of Abraham, the location was convenient to restaurants and we enjoyed the walks through the Lower Town.

Veronique, the concierge was extremely helpful on several occasions, providing information about where to get the best vantage point to see the canoe races (from the docked Quebec-Levis ferry car deck) and the night parade in Charlebourg; to restaurant recommendations (Patricarche: Trilogies from the Land) and arranging our rental car for trips to the Ice Hotel (discounted tickets charged to our room), Ste. Anne-de-Beaupre and Montmorency Falls.

The staff were friendly and professional and when my French failed me, were happy to continue on in English or a mix of both! Slippers for my partner and the offer of a drink while I waited in the lounge were the small touches which made the stay enjoyable and made one feel at ease.

Definitely to be repeated.
