i made a one night visit to quebec city 30dec11. having read advertisements for the hippocampe hotel in montreal publications i decided to give it a try. previously, i have stayed in the big chain hotels.
it is a three star hotel graded by the province of quebec. located in the old town, just a few blocks from the viarail/bus station (an architectural gem in itself!) from which is is located up a hill (a cad4.50 taxi ride) or walkable if weather is nice. a flat rate cab ride of cad32.50 from the airport.
it is located in an older three storey building shared with the hippocampe sauna. entrance is on the main floor, but the 8 rooms and 3 aprtments are on the second floor. it would appear that the whole complex has been recently renovated.
the rooms and very tastefully appointed and the bathrooms have the latest of fixtures. they are what one would see in an interior decorating book/magazine. room furnishings and accessories are all new, an eclectic collection of sytles, flat screen tvs, iron and ironing boards in closet and a very comfortable bed.
there is a communal coffee room with an up to date coffee maker and orange juice in the refrigerator, a toaster and microwave.
hotels guests have key assess to the sauna downstairs. it is immaculately clean with a five man hot tub, sauna room and steam room and numerous showers. the rest of the facilities are what are usually found in a gay sauna.
staff is very friendly, helpful and bilingual!
