    Perfect

    The service was excellent, the desk clerk went out of her way to find us a room with the best view for our price range. It was easy to check in/out; the hotel was on the transit route for easy access to the waterfront. There were amenities such as a pool, spa, and gym that all guests could enjoy, not just those who paid for luxury suites. All in all a nice experience.

    The television had poor reception, odd considering the price of the room, and the air conditioner was an older unit that did not circulate the air enough

  • 9.2
    Perfect

    The hotel is at a 20 minutes walk from the harbour and at 10 minutes from Dalhousie University, which is a little bit less central than the other ones in the area. However, the rooms are spacious, the bed is good and the price is, though not cheap, a bit lower than the other hotels. I could get some work done at my desk and the internet was fast and free. Hotel staff is, like most Canadians, very friendly.

    I could hear the voices of the two women in the room next door very clearly. There is neither a minibar, nor a fridge in the room.

    the television reception was very poor and the tv outdated. Also they raised the price when we arrived

  • 5.8
    Guest rating

    Room decor was a bit tired, good gym and pool and location only 10 minute walk from the centre of town.

    Unfortunately the reception staff came across very rude and even scruffy which marred the stay.

  • 8.0
    Great

    We stayed during the hurricane so there was no power. We were moving our daughter into university so the location was good for us,but services at the hotel were obvioiusly compromised.

  • 5.4
    Guest rating

    15 minute walk from Halifax downtown.

    The hotel was overpriced. The front desk did not want ton honour my Booked.net price. The resataurant was overpriced and had horrible service; many thins on the menu were not available.

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    The accessibility; the fact I was able to make a 'last minute' reservation; the price, the extras - drinking water in the lobby, access to a Globe and Mail, quality toiletries, apples at reception; the service I received from anyone I had contact with.

    I'd love it to be on the waterfront, but of course, this cannot be changed.

  • 6.6
    Nice

    The staff wsa very courteous, it was centrally located and overall was quite reasonable.

    Room could have been cleaner, found a water bottle left over from a former visitor underneath the curtains and the bathroom grout was mouldy. Otherwise the room was good, decor reasonable

  • 7.0
    Very good

    I did not like the fact that the house keeping did not change our sheets they did not vaccume the carpets nor did they at times whipe things down and leave clean glasses and cups.

  • 10.0
    Perfect

    While staying at the Atlantica hotel we mostly visited family. The hotel was very well located close to downtown where we did most of our walking. The location was perfect.

    The only negative I would mention, is that in the morning the beautiful sun would shine in our room, sometimes waking us up before we actually wanted to get up. It would have been nice if the side drapes actually we able to close to block out the morning sun...

  • 8.2
    Great

    We were pleased with the cleansiness and open space of the reception area. Would stay there again.

    Didn't like to be charged for parking

  • 7.8
    Very good

    Excellent breakfast. Very helpful staff who assisted with my very restrictive diatary needs.

    Bathroom sink stopper control did not function properly. Sink also leaked onto the floor. Staff were informed but the problem (an easy mechanical adjustment) was not resolved.

  • 10.0
    Perfect

    Excellent facilities and service. The rooms were big and clean, I very much enjoyed the pool and hot tub and the customer service was excellent. I also appreciated that the shampoo and conditioner in the rooms was Aveda brand.

    It would be nice of the hotel had a direct shuttle to the airport. Othewrise, everything was great.
