I found this place after doing a search on TripAdvisor, and seeing the positive reviews. I didn't even notice that this was a gay hotel until I got the confirmation. Oh well...this was a very last minute trip (other plans fell through due to the hurricane in the south). I figured beggars can't be choosers, and since this was the... More

As advertised, Hippocampe is hotel and sauna that caters to adult men (gay/bi/queer). The staff were friendly, cheerful, and helpful, and the web site accurately portrayed the facilities. The hotel rooms were clean and comfortable. The bed was really nice, plus the room had a security safe. Most rooms use shared bathrooms; the one we shared was never busy, and... More

I had never been to a "sauna" before, my boyfriend had. But I was looking for a nice affordable place for us to stay for our first time in Quebec City with some charm in the Old City. And this met the bill. The staff was very welcoming and the place very clean and tastefully decorated. We used the sauna... More

Hotel Hippocampe is not for everyone - and I mean that quite literally. This is a gay establishment that bills itself as "for men only." When you book your room, your confirmation email tells you clearly "You have booked at a gay hotel." That said, if you're a gay man, this is actually a really nice place to stay. It's... More

My husband and I just spent three nights here and it has been a real treat. We booked the largest suite on the top floor--full kitchen, living room and bedroom with a very modern bathroom. We were very happy and impressed with the staff--Richard and Gilles --and how well maintained and clean the entire property--including the sauna. The location is... More

My partner booked this and I was a little hesitant because it is above the sauna. However, everything was great. Although our room wasn't ready (we did arrive early) we were welcomed warmly by Gilles and Richard and Gilles drove us around the city in his car. After a stroll around we found our bags were already in our room.... More

I recently passed three nights at the Hippocampe, Quebec's premiere gay hotel/sauna "for men only." The building stands on a corner across the street from a park and 2 blocks away from the city's trendy and tourist and historic Rue St.-Jean. The hotel proper is upstairs and the sauna (in which rooms can be rented, the only draw-back being shared... More

The Hippocampe is delightful hotel for the gay traveler. The hotel is separated from the bath for those travellers who are not interested in the bath portion. I was upgraded to a suite on the third floor when I arrived and what a nice treat. The suite really wasn't that much more money but it had a kitchen which I... More

A great location for visiting Old Quebec City, it just can't be beat for the price. Lovely helpful staff, they even helped bring our bags up the stairs, and supplied us with free laundry upon request. We had a spacious room, clean and airy. The bed was great, with a really warm quilt. Bathroom up to date. The breakfast was... More
