“Simply Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

The hotel is located in old Quebec and offers wonderful charm. Our trip was a Christmas stopover traveling to Canada's east coast.

Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful in arranging dinner reservations for us.

The main lobby is very inviting in the cold winter, offering a large wood burning fireplace that is kept stoked for guests to enjoy. You can order a beverage to enjoy by the fire. It is like stepping back in time.

The room is very efficiently laid out and very comfortable.

For us, the thing that will bring us back to the hotel every year now, is their pet friendly policy. But they go above and beyond for your beloved pet. Our room had a bed and blanket, pet dishes, and a bag if treats. Finally, we had arranged for a sitter for our dog, through the hotel. She was so kind and made us feel comfortable enough to enjoy our evening dinner.

We have stayed at a number of different hotels in the Quebec area when traveling at Christmas. From now on, there will be no doubt where we will be staying and I think we may make a trip back without the dog to enjoy the hotel and old Quebec.

Thanks for a great experience.

We picked Quebec City to enjoy the Christmas season in a cold weather environment. We picked the Hotel Germaine Dominion because of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed on either count. We loved out room and its accessories. The lighting is complicated and dark in some portions of the room,but we adapted to it without hardship. Lobby, breakfast, location are superb. But the best of all was the concierge service. We had not prepared extensively for the trip and depended heavily on the advice from Annie with whom we interacted for most of our 5 night trip. Describe the type of food or activity we sought and she had a recommendation for us. Simply superb but really typical from all of the hotel staff during our stay. Well done - our stay was most enjoyable.

I've been meaning to review the Dominion for a while now. I've stayed at the hotel dozens of times over the past six years, and it's become my favorite, from anywhere I travel. That isn't due to one element in particular, but to the overall feel you get from staying here: you feel as if your home, with better linens.

If I was forced to define the hotel's attributes, I would have to point to the service and general attention to detail as the main strength. The décor and ambiance is perfect. The bed is awesome. The rooms are comfortable. The decorative apples are tasty.

But, as mentioned, it's really about the overall experience; which, for me, has always gone without a glitch.

We booked a package weekend from Expedia, Le Germain was our choice of hotel, it was our first visit and we were NOT disappointed! old world charm, a gorgeous relaxing lobby with giant wood burning fireplace, where they served a wonderful complimentary breakfast buffet every morning, and a lovely coffee/tea station open 24 hrs . But the best part was the BED!!! amazing!! soooooo comfortable, we have never had such a quality sleep in any other hotel we have stayed at.The rooms are lovely and clean, and its located in the perfect location to explore and discover Old Quebec on foot! Highly recommend!

Le Germain-Dominion reminded us of the boutique hotel we stayed in Paris (with much bigger rooms here). Even with modern amenities it has an exquisite old world charm. Modern fittings perfectly complement and contrast the spacious rooms with red brick walls. Nespresso machine in room and Molten Brown toiletries add a very elegant touch to make the stay truly luxurious.
Service was impeccable and the breakfast in backyard was fresh and enjoyable with a few birds skipping around.
The location is amazing and we didn't need to drive or take a cab for anywhere. Great dinner options nearby and hotel even has menus for the nearby restaurants they recommend. Perfect!

Dear reviewer,

Did you know that Quebec City consider itself as SO EUROPE SO CLOSE... I am glad that you feel we are great representatives of our beautiful city.

I am also happy to say that Nespresso machines in room, Molton Brown toiletries and deluxe continental breakfast buffet (included in room rates) are part of our offer with all Le Germain Boutique-Hotels in Montreal, Toronto and Calgary.

And we have a passion for pampering... See you soon!

What a pleasant surprise when we turned up at this hotel, doesn't look flash from the outside but really nice inside, great rooms with hardly any noise, and so close to everything - you can walk just about anywhere from here. We were going on a cruise at the end of our stay at the hotel and it only took about 3 minutes to walk to the cruise terminal.

Room Tip: Don't think there would be any problems at this hotel.

We stayed here for 3 days - on a November weekend. Wonderful experience.

Location - perfect - south view of the harbour, walk almost anywhere.
Rooms - recently remodeled classic office building - rooms are WOW. Turndown service.
Breakfast - excellent choices, great service, private seating or join a group

Overall - great boutique hotel experience - end of November Quebec City was cold but the hospitality was warm and you could walk anywhere. Hotel is modern, squeaky clean, friendly bilingual staff. We had no car (it's close to the train station) but there was parking in rear.

Restaurants and shops are very close.

Very relaxing overall - great getaway, met some nice folks sitting around the fireplace with a "real" wood fire.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side have a view of the river.
