... it was soo French. About 50% of people here don't speak English. All the signs are in French, and statue plaques, although some statues have both French and English but not all. It's a beautiful town. We had a quick look around tonight but will have the tour tomorrow with a local tour guide in place of our coach tour guide. We came across a group of school children chatting away in French and the Starbucks shop assistant near our hotel knew only basic English. ...

Facing the wind is soon made easier thanks to the winter playground that is Le Carnaval de Quebec: ferris wheel, ice sculptures, luge rides, sleigh rides,tubing, ice fishing, and much more. Silly me, I forgot my speedo to enjoy the outdoor hot tub! We are lucky enough to be greeted ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Auberge Saint-Antoine Quebec City
Best place in the world
What a wonderful place! One of the most charming place I have been to. I have travelled around the world in 5* hotels and I can assure you that I am a very critical person, this being said I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The hotel is located in a unique historical setting. The staff is very friendly and will do anything to make your stay the most memorable! I was greeted by a warm and sophisticated woman "Manon" who went out of her way to make sure that our needs were fufilled. Manon was a very energetic person who had a smile that could not lie....she loves the Auberge and her work and this of course translates in excellent service! Thank you to everyone, especially Manon for the outstanding and memorable stay!
Here I am at the end of a journey that granted me the opportunity to experience an unforgettable holyday in the heart of Old Port of Quebec. The Auberge St. Antoine is a veritable oasis where history & modernism intertwine, to reveal an ambiance bathed in a remarkable serenity. It is a pleasure to find oneself nestled by the fireplace, glass in hand, or in the comfort of the suites that whisks one toward starry nights. The courteous service & the discovery of the chefs delights awaken the senses & are tantalizing invitation to return. Thank you!
My husband & I just spent an incredible weekend at the Auberge St. Antoine!First of all, the rooms are amazing! From the heated tile floors in the bathroom and spa-like showers, to the turn down service that welcomed us to our room for the evening with dimmed lights and soft classical music coming from the personal Bose system in the room?WOW!...it was truly an unexpected surprise! I can only imagine what one of their suites is like!The hotel itself is inviting from the moment you enter. The lighting captures you everywhere with its unique subtlety and ever changing color. This hotel is elegant but charming, regal yet intimate?and very relaxing! The unique d?cor includes incredible displays throughout that are beautifully backlit, holding artifacts found during the construction of the hotel?s recent, extensive addition. ...Someone really knew what they were doing; this is not your ordinary hotel!The entire staff was eager to please, very attentive and friendly, and all spoke very good English?a plus where French is spoken everywhere! The owner even mingled with his guests to make sure we were all happy and well taken care of ?a very personal touch!The breakfast buffet included a multitude of homemade breads, bagels and muffins, various French cheeses, cereals, fresh fruits, boiled eggs, yogurts and terrific spreads. We looked forward to that everyday.What a great place, and it?s close to everything?shopping, great restaurants, entertainment, etc.I found myself bragging to people on the street about what a pleasure it was to have picked such a great place for a long weekend stay!I would imagine whether you?re a movie star or royalty, or just regular people like us, the feeling you will take with you when you leave this place is simply a longing to return.
Auberge Saint - Antoine, the best place to stay in Quebec period.
Auberge Saint-Antoine is the best place to stay in Quebec. Its location in the lower village of old Quebec is a stones throw from the St. Lawerence River. The rooms are all differnent and beautiful. The views are spectacular. Great location for everything the old town has to offer. The employees are top notch and will help you with anything. Wonderful for kids too. I have stayed all over Quebec, and will always stay at Saint - Antoine from now on. ( 6 stays so far )
A truly special experience
The historic dimension of this hotel combined with its great location remind us of similar establishments in Europe. Certainly one of the most comfortable and well appointed rooms we have ever stayed in. A delightful, very well run hotel with great attention to detail which give it a distinctive air. The staff are particularly attentive and helpful.
My wife and I stayed at the Auberge Ste. Antoine last fall just as they were completing the new addition. I am writing this because we felt that Quebec and Canada for that matter have taken a giant leap forward as far as hotels are concerned with the new Auberge. I am frankly suprised at any review at this site which is not excellent and this has prompted us to write.
A Delightful hideway and ultimate comfort
We were at the hotel in Mid-Summer 2203 while under reconstruction and had a wonderful time. The new Lux rooms are very well done. The staff was accomodating and extremely helpful. We are booking our next vist this December. We look forward to returning and only regret the resturant will not be complete before our visit.
We have been to the hotel many times and find the accomodations and service to be superior to any other hotel in Quebec City. Artful upscale rooms wih fabulous baths. A real destination for rest and relaxation. We are awaiting the in house restaurant since going out in the winter months can be challenging. We have not yet been since the expansion but have heard that the owners have maintained the high quality throughout. We can not wait to get there again.
The hotel and the rooms are very well decorated. The hotel location is perfect.
Not so much!
Well, it wasn't what we expected. Their website suggests that this is a charming, upscale bed and breakfast kind of place. In reality, the common areas are just that, but the new guest rooms are upscale, artsy...but hardly charming.
-Under construction, you use service elevator -No bed-side tables (put your wine glass on the floor??) -No bed-side lamps....no reading in bed! -Location? be ready to hike up a hill that would kill an ordinary person
-Nice people -Great bathrooms -Possible water views
