Check-In

As stated above, check-in begins at 4:00PM, which is fairly standard.

I arrived at 11:00AM and was granted an early check-in since my room was ready. As with any hotel, early check-ins are never guaranteed. However, the staff will do their best to accommodate your request.

The Citadine Suite features a king size bed, spacious living space, balcony area, and stunning views of Old Quebec. What’s also great about this suite is that there are two three-quarter baths both equipped with a sink(s), toilet, and shower with shower head and rain shower options. (No more fighting for the bathroom with your travel companion!) Additionally, there is a gorgeous freestanding bathtub that allows you to admire the spectacles of the city.

Cons

I personally had such a phenomenal time at Le Capitole Hôtel that I honestly have no negative feedback whatsoever. If I really have to nitpick, it is that there was construction across the street, which obstructed the views a little. However, this obviously isn’t something that the hotel can control. That said, my stay was incredible nonetheless and this truly is one of the best hotels in Quebec City.

    What a lovely looking property. I wish I had known about this one when I visited Quebec, I had so many problems finding accommodation. Not sure I’d fit in that bathtub though, lol. joking aside, saving this post because I might have to go to Quebec next year, fingers crossed!

    My goodness, what an exquisite hotel! I love that there was more than one bathroom and the free-standing tub in the room is so luxurious. Looks like an amazing stay so I can understand why it was hard for you to find any cons.

    We have visited Quebec City a few times and have stayed in different spots – but nothing that would draw us back. So it was good to check out your comments on Le Capitole Hotel. I love a hotel like this located in the old city. So easy to walk everywhere then. The views of Old Quebec from this hotel are a perfect way to get in the feel of this city. Especially from a tub with bubbly! Great food would add the finishing touch for us.

    You had me at 5 star property. I love QC, and tend to seek out boutique hotels, so was eager to read your review. I love the views, the spaciousness of the suite and the free standing tub. The restaurants and bar would be exactly what I would want to try too. I’ll keep this hotel in mind for my next trip.

    Even from the pictures and your experience staying at Le Capitole, I could say there’s no con on staying at this hotel. Such a luxury stay and I found the bathtub by the window is a smart idea. The views from the hotel are also amazing.
