The province of Québec is a destination for international gay travelers where we can easily find gay friendly hotels Quebec. Gay life here is generally open and accepted (gay marriage is legal throughout the province), and gay travelers are heavily marketed to.
Canada is a relatively gay-friendly country, with its largest cities featuring their own gay areas and communities, such as Toronto’s Church and Wellesley neighbourhood, Montreal’s Gay Village commercial district, Vancouver Davie Village, and Ottawa Bank Street Gay Village.
Québec City sits on the Saint Lawrence River in Canada’s mostly French-speaking Québec province. Dating to 1608, it has a fortified colonial core, Vieux-Québec and Place Royale, with stone buildings and narrow streets.

1. Hotel Hippocampe – Caters to Gay Men 3* – Gay Friendly Hotels Quebec
This gay men exclusive hotel in downtown Old Quebec is across the street from Parc de l’Artillerie. It features a jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath and solarium.
Free Wi-Fi access and a flat-screen TV with cable are available in the modernly decorated rooms at Hotel Hippocampe. All rooms are soundproof and include a safety deposit box and an iron.
The front desk at Hotel Hippocampe is staffed 24 hours a day and a concierge staff is available to help guests plan their stay in Quebec. Free coffee is served every morning in the lobby.
The rooms are clean cozy and warm. The staff was super attentive and friendly. The hotel is located within the walls of the old historical district. Just a short walk up the hill and you’re strolling the old streets.
The breakfast is small, but the breakfast is not why you stay here. It’s just a nice added little bonus to give you a little wake up buzz to get you moving.
Just a great little property (men only) just a block from Battlement park and the beautiful old central city.
Clean tasteful rooms with attentive, friendly and unobtrusive staff. You would have to work overtime to find an average restaurant in the neighborhood or a less than attentive or less friendly service staff.
We’ve never been here before but really stumbled on a gem. Hot tub was great. Met alot of friendly men.
This is a unique hotel for men only. Old hotel that is well maintained and comfortable with friendly staff. Hotel is connected to a sauna that is free to hotel guests. Very convenient area within walking distance to all of Quebec City’s beauty.
It’s in an excellent location and an easy walk to both the nightlife and the old city. Our room was great with a very comfortable bed, decent storage and en-suite bathroom. However, it spring a leak after heavy rainfall one night. There were no rooms left in the main building so we had to move to the apartment next door. The staff were fantastic in sorting out the move and very apologetic. We were still able to use the facilities, despite being in a separate building.
I enjoyed a nice stay at this hotel during my visit to Quebec. I stayed in the Junior Suite, which was appropriately pictured on their website. The suite was very spacious, clean, and quiet. Continental breakfast is included, but don’t expect any thrills. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The sauna added a great perk, as hotel guests have complimentary 24-hour access. I will absolutely stay here again, especially since it is substantially less expensive than most everything else in the old town.
It was the perfect place for us to travel around Quebec City, and it’s also a short walk from the train and bus stations. We stayed in the Senior Suite, and it was spacious and clean. In fact it was an apartment, and we could have easily stayed a month or more. The Senior Suite is on the top floor (3rd), and it’s a walkup, but so worth the climb. The view of the city was spectacular from 2 angles. It was updated and has a very modern vibe. We loved having a full kitchen, and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever experienced.
The staff were very helpful, and we enjoyed the delicious breakfast that was available every morning. We did not use the sauna that is attached to the hotel. In fact, you don’t even realize it is there, since it is separate from the hotel. We would definitely stay there again, and highly recommend Hippocampe for your stay in Quebec City.
Centrally located Hippocampe Hotel is a great one for gay travelers. The rooms are very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. As soon as we checked in, they gave us very good recommendations for restaurants to have dinner.
Perfect location: close to all the attractions. Good size room (queen bed with private bath). Very good design of room with refrigerator and complimentary bottles of water. Staff were friendly and helpful. It is gay men only which is understandable since staying there also gets you access to the gay sauna. Breakfast was extra charge but inexpensive. It includes only brewed coffee, bagels, bread, yogurt, bananas and some fruits. Breakfast room was small so I brought foods to my room. No problem. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for other gay men.
The location is fantastic and central, being within the city walls, and right by a park too, onto which my room looked out – it was an ideal (and cheap) base for exploring the city on foot. The room was also convenient, with air-conditioning (somewhat old and noisy), fridge, in-room safe, clean bathroom, free and reliable wifi. However, the best aspect was the very friendly staff, who were very attentive, were patient enough to endure my less than perfect French (and not interrupt me, switch to English, or even pretend to notice my failings), and kindly explained the layout of the city and pointed out various places of interest on a map.
The room is very well thought through and has touches of humour too – from the message on the envelope for the ‘maid’ to the mouthwash in the bathroom. The owners also clearly take security very seriously, which was very good.
It was a delightful stay, and I would return here if I were in Quebec again.

This is my first time to book a Bed & Breakfast and it did not disappoint me!!
The place is amazing esp. the location! Walking distance to almost all tourist spots in Old Québec!! Can’t beat that!
Marjorie and Aurelie are very accomodating! French toast is sooo yummy!! Will recommend this place to my friends and family!
Her home is charming, spotless and comfortable and within walking distance to all the sites. Breakfasts were a feast with breads, cakes, jellies, cheese, meats and a delicious main course.
Location is perfect, just at the neck entrance of central Quebec, walking distance to most attractions.
Not to mention the FREE parking, though a little bit cramp and you have to leave your key to the host in case giving way to others’ car.
The host is friendly, though not very good on English. Rooms is spacious and clean, decoration of bathroom is odd but plenty of space. Bedding is also fantastic.
There is a living room in 2nd floor, also you can sit on the balcony viewing the old city and mountains nearby.
Breakfast is good, we had French toast, salad and fried egg. You can share coffee and salad with other guests, which is a key experience for staying in B&B.
Chez Hubert was a comfy, warm & clean B&B located in the heart of Old Quebec. Marjorie greeted us warmly and was very helpful with our questions. The free parking in the back was a big plus. The location was within walking distance of all of the sights. The breakfast each morning was delicious. Will stay there again on our next visit.

We stayed here over New Year’s Eve and were absolutely thrilled with the service and atmosphere the hotel provided. The concierges were very helpful, friendly, and provided lots of tips for what to see in this great city.
Highly recommended. Gay friendly.
The service was friendly and accommodating, breakfast at our door made for an easy start to the day. Very comfortable and great location to the old town.
Lovely small hotel very conveniently located only 5 mins walk to the train station and 10 mins to the enter of the old town. The location would be much quieter in peak tourist season. Only drawback might be the walk to the center is uphill. However, the funicular is only 10 min walk away and takes you to the Chateaux Frontenac for only $3:50 per person and is a fun ride.
The room we had was decent size for old Quebec. Some other rooms are smaller. Bathroom was small but totally adequate. All the furnishings were very good.
The continental breakfast left outside the door each morning is a nice touch. Additional coffee, toast, muffins etc are available in the lobby.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would strongly recommend the hotel.
Hôtel des Coutellier is a lovely little boutique hotel on Rue Saint-Paul on the edge of Old Town. Steps to everything the Old Town has to offer. Amazing location. Beautiful & clean room – the nightlight in the bathroom was a great touch. Very friendly & helpful (bilingual) staff. And a continental breakfast delivered to your door.
Excellent boutique hotel which is close enough to the train station to walk to it but far enough away to avoid noise. Also close enough to most tourist attractions to walk to in 15-20 minutes. Great people at the hotel who helped with any questions we had about Quebec, restaurants, getting around town etc. and great croissants in the morning.
Great location! Close to the metro, harbor, old city, restaurants, shopping and more! Small boutique hotel with amazing rooms. Nicely decorated and plenty of room. They staff was amazing! They had paid parking available. It was a little tricky to find but so worth it! I loved this place. They offered fresh fruit, coffee, juice and tea. A breakfast sack was placed on the door every morning with yummy pastries and juice. So clean. The entire staff seemed to take a lot of pride in this hotel and we benefited.
We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. We had a superior King room and it looked exactly as it did in the pictures; spacious, quiet, comfortable and clean. Breakfast is delivered in a thermal bag and there is a Keurig already in the room, we loved eating breakfast in our pajamas in the room. The hotel is in a great location, walking distance to many restaurants and the attractions.
The staff was absolutely great! So friendly and always had a smile and made us feel really welcome. Since we were celebrating our anniversary I contacted them ahead of time to arrange for a couples massage in the room and everything worked out perfect. We would definitely stay here again.

4. Château Des Tourelles 3* – LGBT Friendly Hotels Quebec
Chateau Des Tourelles is a charming inn located 10 minutes’ walk from Old City in the St-Jean-Baptiste district. All rooms offer a cable TV and coffee machine. Some suites have a private terrace and a spa bath.
Guests can enjoy free coffee, tea, fruit and cupcakes during their stay.

Our house, built in 1898, hosts 10 rooms, suites and studios in the heart of the very old and very lively Saint Jean Baptiste area, and is at a 10 minutes walk from the Old Quebec. The Château des Tourelles is primarily a small cozy hotel, where people feel good and a little like at home. Our panoramic terrace covering the roof of the hotel will seduce you, as it offers one of the most beautiful views of Quebec, the Laurentides Mountains and part of the Saint Lawrence river and of the Orleans island. So… see you soon!
The rooms were a good size, very clean and well decorated. It had good double glazing and I was surprised how quiet it was, so virtually no traffic noise. Our hosts were charming and very helpful and provided us with a great breakfast. The location is good being a 10 minute walk from the city walls and the old town. An added bonus was the roof terrace where you could sit and have an amazing view over Quebec. The only possible downside could be the stairs are quite steep for anyone who has a problem climbing stairs. I would love to stay here again.
Our room was both spacious and comfortable and incredibly clean. The hotel is centrally located and an easy walk to Old Quebec—about ten minutes. There are a host of small shops, bistros and pubs along the way. (I highly recommend checking some of them out before you get to the Old City.) Parking is easy and secure, just around the block. You can come and go as you need to, and it’s only a minute to the freeway if you are looking to explore outside the city.
The hotel provides breakfast which was quite good and a nice addition. It also has a quaint lounge/reading area that you can enjoy. We shared a cup of tea with another guest on our first night and had a terrific conversation about life in the states versus Canada.
The rooms are full of character, there’s a rooftop terrace with a view over the city. The bed was comfy and big enough.
The breakfast was really good, it’s served in a smallish dining area, but that actually causes you to talk to fellow guests, which was really interesting. Parking is in a reserved off road 1st floor. building around the corner, 5 minutes walk, but just fine.
The breakfast served in the morning is homemade and is absolutely delicious! (They serve you bread from a very famous bakery in town called Paillard). The room is very clean. We booked a room with a kitchen and an en-suite, which gave us the option to cook a simple dinner when we don’t feel like eating out. The kitchen is small, but there are pots and pans available. The mattress can be a bit on the softer side. Overall, our stay was wonderful. Will definitely book this B&B again if we ever come back to Quebec City for another visit.
This bed and breakfast type place was a little out of the main tourist area but was well within walking distance making for a perfect location. I prefer to stay in a quieter area and walk to the busier areas. The room was cleaned every day. The breakfast was wonderful. The staff was very personable making for a very pleasant stay.
We stayed in the upstairs suit which had a large bathroom with a jetted tub and shower, a separate room with a queen bed, and a small step down side room with a single bed. It also had a large private terrace that overlooked a nice view of the countryside and city. Breakfast was made to order each morning and was delicious and it was fun to interact with the other guests from all over the world. The place looks and feels amazing right when you walk in. I loved the stairs and the look of the lobby and kitchen area. Such a great culture experience and so different than the typical hotel stay.
The hotel is on Rue Saint Jean which has many shops, restaurants and other fun places all either next door or within a short 5 min walk. There is a movie theater within a 10 min walk that showed both French and English movies. Old Quebec was approx 15 walk through a very safe part of town that was wonderful with french architecture and culture so there is no need for transportation to most of the sights in the area. We even walked to the local baseball stadium for a game with the Quebec Capitals vs the Hollywood Stars, very fun if you get the chance.
Talk to William and he can tell you about several quick shortcuts to get the stadium including a trip down a beautiful set of wooden stairs surrounded by lush trees. There is parking available and the hotel has a select number of parking spots which is located about a block away. It was a little tricky the very first time to find it and open the door and locate the stalls inside but once we did it was easy to use. The neighborhood around the area was very safe and we walked around up until 10pm at times with no concerns for safety. Really a fun and perfect place to stay if you are visiting Quebec City and are looking for something a little different than your typical chain hotel experience. I would stay here again without hesitation and highly recommend it for any travelers who are visiting the city.

5. Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac 5* – Gay Friendly Hotels Quebec
Situated in, this heritage property boasts of the . On-site restaurants offer a variety of dining options, from classic to regional dishes. Montmorency National Park is 2 minutes’ drive away.
The elegant, European-style rooms ofoffer a cable TV and a coffee maker. Ironing facilities and air conditioning are also included.
Guests of the Fairmont are welcome to enjoy the, a hot tub and steam rooms. A , business center and services are also available. Guests can enjoy a variety of treatments at the Spa du Château, the on-site spa.
Standing high on a bluff overlooking the mighty St. Lawrence River, Fairmont Le Château Frontenac is not merely a hotel located in the heart of Old Québec – it is the heart of it. At Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, guests are guaranteed a memorable and inspiring stay in one of the most beautiful cities in the world with easy walking access to all of the wonderful sites and experiences that Old Québec has to offer.
The Fairmont Gold level is truly worth the experience. A dedicated lounge on the 14th floor, breakfast included, with appetizers and drinks available for a fun “cinq a sept” each day, plus tastefully renovated rooms that still capture the beauty of this old castle. When this hotel offers you a “river view” they are not kidding! The St. Lawrence river and old town are amazing to watch from this height both day and night.
The stunning, iconic château is a must-see when visiting Quebec City, even to just have a drink in the bar overlooking the river, or simply walk through and admire (especially at Christmastime to see the amazing gingerbread model of the Château, & other holiday decor). As with most old hotels, rooms can be smallish, but they’re comfortable; you can reserve a river or city view.
Temperature control is easy with heating in both the main room and bath, and windows thankfully open is winter. Drapes do a good job at blocking light. Minibar (unfortunately the pressure-sensitive type that charges items immediately – very inconvenient if you want to cool your own items), no microwave, Keurig coffee maker, free wi-fi, limited cable TV, luggage rack, small closet w/safe, robes & slippers. Good mattress, soft bedding, squishy pillows. Bathrooms have tub/shower combo with shampoo/conditioner/gel minis, etc. Staff are extremely gracious, with quick response for needed items, bell captains/valets are on.
The hotel is the focal point of the area and is a great home base for exploring Old Town and beyond. We walked everywhere and had a great time enjoying the old world charm of the area. There are plenty of very good bars and restaurants within a 10 minute walk of the hotel.
The most striking thing that takes this from a very nice old hotel to a first class establishment is the staff. Everyone we ran in to was happy, friendly, and professional. Everyone seemed to be doing their absolute best to make our stay memorable and for that I am truly grateful. I can say with absolute certainty that we will return to Quebec City and we will stay at this hotel again.
The remodeling of our room was well done particularly the bathroom which is not large but is far superior to the bathroom we had at Fairmont Manoir Richelieu just one week prior. The only mild negative is that I wish there was a stand-alone shower rather than a shower in the bathtub, but at least it was a rain shower. However not surprisingly for an older hotel, water pressure was not the best. In the bathroom we had large bottles of Le Labo products with my name printed on the bottles which was a nice touch, similar to what they do in Fairmont Montebello for Platinum members. The layout of the room was a bit odd because the bathroom was immediately to the right when you enter the room rather than being next to the bedroom) but I liked the angled-shape ceiling and the view from the room was quite nice, overlooking the terrace above the St.Lawrence river.
The three restaurants / bars of the hotel have also recently been renovated and we used our welcome drink vouchers at the Sam Bistro. The cocktail of the day was White Cosmo which was excellent and prepared by a barman who clearly knew his job, and much better than the cocktails we received at the Fairmont Manoir Richelieu. The atmosphere and décor of the place is very attractive and for people eating in the restaurant there is a bright room with large windows with the view of the river.
Overall this hotel is one of the best Fairmonts we have visited in Canada. The Fairmont the most similar in style to Château Frontenac would be Banff, and I would put Château Frontenac a notch above Banff in my opinion. There is generally a price premium required to stay at Fairmont relative to other options, but personally I think it is worth it.
How much does a room costs at Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac ?
Prices start 219 $/night for Fairmont Queen Room. The Deluxe King Room with City View is 226$/room per night with breakfast included – if coming on a honeymoon this is the perfect choice for gay couples.
This room boasts views of Old Quebec City. It features a flat-screen cable TV, a minibar and a work desk.
