Hotel 71 and Hotel Saint-Pierre: Hidden Gems in Quebec City

Continuing on my hotel tour of Quebec (and you can catch up on last week's episode here) are the sister hotels Hotel 71 and Hotel Saint-Pierre.

These hotels are joined at the lobby and are located very close to the Chateau Frontenac near the lower part of the funicular. The hotels are part of a new trend of minimalistic hotels in Quebec City.

Hotel 71 Rooms 

The Hotel 71 is a trendy, sleek hotel that caters to mostly couples. There are only 50 rooms in the hotel. In the low season, the superior room goes for about $189/nt, reaching the low $300s during the high season. The lobby has an espresso bar and hosts a happy hour during the evening. Walking through the hallways feels warm and intimate.

The hotel used to be a bank and many of the details of the old buildings are incorporated into the design; in the penthouse the kitchen is nestled into an old vault. I really loved this hotel and thought the value was unbelievable for the price. The rooms are a reasonable size and all modernly decorated.

The penthouse is a gorgeous, large open room with a sectioned off bedroom. There's a long table for hosting private events and, upstairs, a large private terrace with an unbelievable view of the Chateau Frontenac and river.

There is a restaurant, which is open to the public for lunch and dinner, but serves free buffet breakfast in the morning.

The hotel has a fitness room and spa, which is available to Hotel Saint-Pierre guests as well.

The lobby of the Hotel 71 connects to the Hotel Saint-Pierre. The Hotel Saint-Pierre is a more traditional version of the Hotel 71 and caters towards families as well as couples. There are 31 rooms, which are a bit larger than at Hotel 71 and have more doubles or hideabeds. Many of the rooms also have partial kitchens, which are great for families.

During the low season, a superior room starts at $159/night. The vibe is a cozy and shabby- chic with beautiful details like tasteful exposed pipes and wooden floors. The 1830's windows are still intact and can even open for some fresh air. I would recommend not opening them in the winter.

The Hotel Saint-Pierre also has a great restaurant, which serves complimentary a la carte breakfast included in the price of the room. That detail alone is amazing! If you're interested in a more intimate hotel at a ridiculously reasonable price, either one of theses are a gem!
