TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel 71 Quebec City
The name of the hotel is actually just Hotel 71. The hotel has a later check in than many, 4 p.m. It's located in the heart of the historic old city, close to the old port and the quaint shops below the walls of the Citadel and Chateau Frontenac. It's right across the street from the Museum of Civilization.
The room we had was on the top floor with an excellent view of the chateau. The ceilings were very high but possibly only because it was the top floor. The floors were hard wood with rugs. The bed a platform one with a comfy mattress. The bathroom was nice and modern with a shower area on one end of it, glassed off rather than one of those little shower stalls many have. Lovely toiletries included and a hair dryer handy. The room has a large flat screen tv and a good sized desk. There's a safe in the closet and an ironing board and iron as well. We did have an upgraded room so some of these amenities might not be in a basic room. There were real glasses in the bathroom, not just plastic and two good sized wine glasses as well.
There didn't seem to be a luggage rack but there is a shelf type ledge all along the windows you could use for a smaller case. I expect they have them if you ask.
We got a special sale rate through Travelzoo and they do some special packages as well. It's not a cheap hotel but it won't break the bank either.
Unique Qualities: There is free wi-fi in the hotel though we had a very weak signal a lot of the time. There is a spa in the hotel, an exercise room, as well as one of the city's best Italian restaurants.
We needed to stay an extra night and it was accomodated with efficiency. The staff on the desk and the cleaner on our floor were very nice though the cleaner only spoke French. There's a DVD player in the room and i believe they will rent or lend you movies at the front desk. There is room service though it seems to be from the Italian restaurant, didn't see any menus for things like breakfast or snacks. Possibly there was, if you called but we didn't use the service.
There's a "Nespresso" machine in the room but no kettle or accomodation for tea. I guess that's French :) There was also a full sized umbrella in the closet for your use. We'd go back again, it was a very comfortable place. There are a few steps up into the building, however. I'm not sure if there is a level entrance from the street behind or not for people with mobility problems.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel 71 Quebec City
Incredible, Super high class, friendly, what every hotel should strive for.
We stayed here one night while passing through Quebec City.
From the moment our car pulled up in front of the hotel until the moment we departed (even after check out) we were treated like royalty. The staff here must be well trained and experienced people because the service, demeanor and attitude of the entire staff is exactly the same as a 5 star world class hotel. From the valet to the front desk, all the way to the cafe. There were no exceptions to this rule.
Our room had a super comfortable king size bed. It was nicely furnished. There was a view from our room of the St. Lawrence River. Our room was on the fourth floor. The hotel is not right on the river and you need the upper floors to have a view. The room was impeccably clean. We were never disturbed in our room by housekeeping, but our room was always prepared when we returned to it.
A very nice breakfast was included in the room rate which was held off the cafe on the main floor. You were also entitled to all the free coffee you wanted all day long. This was not a coffee pot just sitting on a burner, but rather prepared fresh throughout the day, and served to you individually by the cafe waiter/counterperson. This also included freshly made cappuccino and cafe latte which was prepared fresh by the cup each time you ordered it. The service was extraordinary, friendly and personal at the cafe.
The location on Rue St. Pierre was perfect in the lower old town within the walls, just a short walk to the Petite Champlain and the funicular (or the "break neck stairs") to the upper town.
I very highly recommend this hotel for any type of stay, regardless of the reason. The rates were also very reasonable for the type of service received by any standard. A Magnificent hotel experience to say the least.
Just Perfect! Location, service, decor: has it all!
I travel a lot and I am very busy. I always research my travels on TripAdvisor but I NEVER, EVER write reviews due to time constraints. This place is different.
Simply put, this hotel was just extraordinary in terms of meeting my expectations. You can not beat the location. You are in the middle of Old Quebec. 2 minute walk will get you to "Petit Champlain", the oldest shopping district in North America. You can also see the church that was featured in the "Catch me if you can" movie with Leo DiCaprio. It will take you 5-10 min walk to get to the Chateau Frontenac, Dufferin Terrasse/Boardwalk and all the cafe terrasse. From there, you can walk to St-Jean street where you have all sorts of great shopping. Make sure you stop at the Paillard bakery.
Back to 71. The rooms are nicely decorated in a modern minimalist, yet functional style. The bed was extremely comfortable with plenty of pillows. Rain drop shower head complimented the bathroom. TV with surround sound stereo around the room. We had room #630 that had a magnificent view of the Chateau on one side and the port on the other. Can't ask for more. Trust me, you don't want to stay at the Chateau, you just want to visit it: it's old and outdated.
French Breakfast buffet is included and was delicious: croissants and pain-au-chocolat were some of the best I've had.
The staff was accomodating, very helpful and extremely nice. They gave us great restaurant recommendations (try Toast) and directions. Special thanks to Francine, Sophie and Simon for making our stay wonderful.
Definitely worth it.
This is the nicest hotel I have ever stayed at! My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night as a part of a weekend in Quebec City. We got a classic room which includes a king size bed, along with a large glass shower with the most amazing waterfall faucet. Everything was clean and nice and modern. The sound system in the room was a really nice touch and we enjoyed it immensely. We were welcomes with a free drink at the bar. Brekfast was also included and was very delicious. They even served coffees all day long (whatever you wanted) and they were excellent. Staff was also very good. All in all I didnt want to leave and will stay here next time I come to Quebec City.
I don't know why Hotel 71 is not listed with other Quebec City hotels, it's in the center of Quebec City, 20 meters from "Musee de la Civilisation" (a must see in Quebec, very interesting exhibitions about Quebec history and many other temporary exhibitions) , and one street behind the old port, the location is excellent, only a few minutes walking from Place Royale.
The design is modern and comfortable, with brown colors.
The rooms are very nice, stylish and quite large, with magnificient views over the St Lawrence river.
There is no restaurant in the hotel (but plenty of restaurants in the area), only a café where they serve sandwiches, pastries and free coffee during all your stay! Buffet breakfast was good.
All the staff is extremely nice and very friendly.
Hotel 71 is a cool hotel where you feel like you're staying at home.
Overall it's a very good experience, Hotel 71 is certainly one of the best hotel in Quebec City.
My wife stayed there for one night, that of 08 July 2006, and we absolutely loved the place. From the way we were welcomed to our well appointed and tastefully decorated super-clean room, all pointed towards a good experience. All the staff were helpful and in particular one of the young men who worked in the cafe was really great. We enjoyed to welcome cocktail in the cozy bar. The location is second to none with all attractions in the lower part of the city within comfortable walking distance. Our only regret was that one night was not enough and we have already booked a longer stay at the end of the month.
That hotel was very nice. The room was very spacious and the decoration perfect for my taste. It has a very modern style. The room was super clean with high ceilling and a wonderfull view on the river. The location is the best you can walk around old quebec. The service was amazing, they went out of their way to accomodate us and the staff was very friendly. I highly recomend this hotel.
Ce nouvel hotel boutique situé dans le Vieux-Port de Québec est EXTRA...le decor moderne est magnifique et le service est exemplaire... On nous offre une vue superbe de notre chambre....vue sur le fleuve et le vieux-Québec c'est a couper le souffle !!!!
Sans oublier les petites attentions et les délicatesses qui agrémente notre séjour !!!
Également, les restuarants sont aussi SUPER dans ce quartier.
BRAVO et c'est pour moi le plus beau et le meilleur hôtel de Québec !!!!!
Inspired creativity, mellow ambiance
Bringing a building housing a 19th century bank into the 21th century as an incredible hotel is not the easiest of things. But in the heart of the Old Port Historical Quarter of Quebec it was done : resulting in a modern, elegant and welcoming hotel : 71 - Soixante & Onze : Hôtel Café. Ideal to visit Old Quebec and its musea and still within easy reach of the new part.
All rooms are modern using lots of wood and clear colours. Each room has an inviting shower or bathroom and on top the most unforgetable views on the St Lawrence River.

One of the best place we've stayed at! This brand new hotel is just perfect: it's location in the old Quebec,( all the attractions are within a walking distance ), the good restaurants in the neibourhood and overall the place itself is worth the detour!
The rooms are beautiffuly design and we appreciate the breathtaking view on the St-Laurence River.
We like to try new place and Hotel 71 was a very good pick!
What a great experience! We stayed there two nights and it was fantastic.The loation in the Old Port is perfect for visiting, the staff is professionnal and caring, the ambiance cool and the rooms are very confortable and beautifully designed. Overall a very good experience.

... bit before we walked the city some more and had dinner at Cafe D'Orsay. A very nice European Pub as they said on the window. Good food and a nice place to sit and visit as we ate. The walk down one of the shop streets on our way back to the hotel stopping into a few shops on the way.
How would I rate the day? A 10 for sure I really look forward to staying for 3-5 days sometimes in the future in town to just walk around and visit places we saw and did not see.
... regularly but I'll try, at least for the first few weeks. But you have to do your share, too and leave lots of comments; that way I know people actually bother reading this, and I'll also want to hear from you all. It works both ways, you see!
So I probably won't be back on here for a week, seeing as I won't be in Berlin till Sept. 15th, but I'll surely write a post on that date.
Check back ...
the morning we decided to head into the Frontenac hotel for a tour.
The history of these huge old hotels built along the railway trail is
really interesting but the tour was very average. The room they
showed us was not better than any we have stayed in and I would have
thought they would try to really show it off. Next stop was once
again Montreal so we headed out to the East side of the St Lawrence
river. I was keen to head ...
... the east side to the west side. We were treated with some good aerial views of the falls. Again, it was just another perspective to the same scenery.
If one doesn’t feel like spending the money, one could see Montmorency Falls from Highway 138 and not miss too much. But, if you have an hour or two with nothing better to do, then there are worse ways to spend your time and money than to go to Montmorency Falls.
After our exploration of Montmorency ...
