Wow. This gem of a hotel is hidden on a little alley and it took us time to find it. We had taken the train from Montreal and walked from the very Victorian station. You smell the class the moment you walk up to the front door, past a playful fountain consisting of little heads spitting water in every direction.The lobby is quiet and elegant. The walls are punctuated by small vitrines that hold artifacts found in digs around the hotel grounds. These are dated and descriptions in French and English inform you of the contents. We loved looking at these. (We are fascinated by history - what more can I say?) A bellhop took us to our room, 318. The moment we walked in, we sensed trouble. It's one, narrow window looked out on a brick wall. The room was comfortable, but felt like a cabin aboard a ship. Where was the sun, which was blazing outside at the time of our arrival? We had come too far to settle for this. A trip to the front desk and we were relocated to one of the few 'antique' rooms in one wing of the hotel. We got room 326. Stay away from any room ending in 18, unless you like dark. This was not a modern room, but rather made us feel that the year was 1700, the year shown on the front door. We got a 4-poster bed with a queen-sized mattress, but that was fine. What made the room for us was all the windows. Plus we got a small balcony that we could sit on. No great views to speak of, but all those windows! The room had a kitchenette with a sink, and the rather dingily tiled bathroom had a large tub and a shower stall. (Not a jacuzzi, alas.) Ample towels, bathrobes and slippers. In this large suite was just one mirror - the small one above the sink in the bathroom. I guess in the 1700s, no one used mirrors! We got this much more expensive room for the same price as the smaller room. The front desk staff were very gracious about making sure we were happy, and props to them for that happen. No coupons for breakfast, and so we ate elsewhere. Breakfast is pricey here. Le Cochon Dingue (The Crazy Pig) is nearby and serves reasonable breakfasts in a fun part of town near the hotel. Almost everything is within easy reach of the hotel, located in the basse ville (lower town). The famous Frontenac Hotel is in the haute ville (upper town), reachable via funicular or staircase or steep winding road - take your pick. Panache, the famous local restaurant, is located within the hotel. With Pink Floyd in town that night, there were no available tables, so we ate at 'Initial', just around the corner. Very luxe and very chic. Had a very good tasting menu there. The service was painfully slow, so be patient. The hotel has a very well-appointed spa area and gym. Immaculately clean and very zen. The designers of this hotel knew exactly what they were doing. Staff were wonderful and hugely helpful. We felt sad leaving. A good sign, I think.

Room Tip: When booking, make sure that the room has lots of light (if that's important to you). There don...

We just returned from a 5 day stay at the Auberge St. Antoine and I can't say enough about the service and the room. Upon arrival we were greeted with the utmost care and the attention to our needs never ended. For example, while we were there the concierge went beyond by finding us a stroller, we in our rush to depart from home left without one. Our room was incredible we stayed in a suite with old world embellishments. The room had soaring ceilings with huge wooden rafters, some of walls had exposed brick. The king size bed was absolutely comfortable. The room was equipped with a small kitchen two bathrooms, a porcelain, claw-footed tub, shower and living room. We have stayed at several hotels in Quebec City and we have decided that the St. Antoine will be our hotel of choice when we return.

Room Tip: Any room would be wonderful. We had room 322 and it was lovely. I noted that there were rooms with b...

Wonderful experience from the moment we walked in until the day we departed Quebec City. This is a perfect spot to see this beautiful city, walk to everything! Rooms are imaculate and well decorated, there is lovely decor thoughout the hotel, an oh so comfortable bed, an incredible bathroom with an amazing shower which makes me want to do some home renovating, a delicious five star restaurant, inviting cafe and bar and smiling faces of all the staff, genuinely happy to help with any request.
Although Quebec City is fantastic and beautiful, it is the Auberge Saint-Antoine that comes to mind when I think of this City and it is this hotel that I will go back for.

Room Tip: We loved room 514 with a beautiful balcony looking up at the Frontenac.

Love this hotel! The location is absolutely perfect. The hotel is beautiful and comfortable in every way. The room was well sized, the bathroom modern and luxurious, the bed was very comfortable. I would stay here again and would stay longer if I could. Do I have to go back to work?

This hotel has spoiled us for any other. It is beautifully decorated in tones of gray and brown. The lighting is very high tech. We had a very large room overlooking the river (There was a little noise from traffic on the main road but not much). Our room had a piece of the original stone wall, but everything in the room was very modern. The bed was very comfortable and with good pillows. The bathroom had a tub and a shower with a rain head and a wand - your choice.

The Staff at the Auberge was exceedingly pleasant, from the desk check in to the housekeeping and bellman staff.

The location is perfect. The Basse Ville is much livelier that the Haute Ville, and it is easy enough to take the funicular to the Upper Town. We had a rainy day, so we popped into the Musee de a Civilisation, right next door to the Auberge, for a fabulous exhibit of Samurai costumes.

We were sorry to leave such a wonderful hotel.

I have had the opportunity to stay at many of the best hotels all around the world, and the Auberge Saint-Antoine is in the top two or three.

Its very hidden upon arrival, but inside is something close to a museum. Right at the base of old town, exposed ancient stone walls and artifacts highlight the decor.

Service was 'perfect'. Upon check in they arranged for a preferred turn down service time, to accommodate my schedule. I also had a couple special requests that were handled without fanfare, and to my complete delight.

The concierge recommendations on where to eat, entertainment options, and logistics were especially useful. I was meeting with colleagues that were staying in other area hotels, and they started relying on the recommendations of my concierge on where to go and what to do. Not a single dud.

The restaurant and lounge were exceptional. Eat there at least once, and you will want every meal there.

Rooms were exceptionally clean. The bath and shower were generous streams of water with a direct temperature control. Although the middle of summer, every time I walked into the tiled bath I was met with a warm floor. Comfy!

I cannot recommend this hotel high enough. Big thumbs up!!

Room Tip: I dont have anything to compare to, since I only have tried one room. But I dont think you could ge...

My wife and I were able to get away for 4 nites in Quebec City and stayed at this beautiful hotel in the heart of the of the old city. First, the hotel is immaculate, beautifully designed, artfully decorated, and seems completely new and very well maintained--rooms are cool in summer, exceedingly quiet, dream beds for sleeping, great showers and bathrooms. Comes with turn-down evening service. Second, the staff is very warm and friendly, helpful and offers just enough presence to not be intrusive. We especially liked Genevieve the concierge who pointed us in the direction of great restaurants, spas, and day trips. We would absolutely return to auberge st. Antoine and recommend it to friends and family.
