"Clean, comfortable - a bit of a walk to waterfront"
The Atlantica in Halifax was clean, comfortable and well maintained. The local area had shopping, services, etc. and felt safe to walk through. We had good weather and like to walk, so walking to the hisoric and waterfront area of Halifax was fine for us, but if you don't it might be necessary to pay for parking in those areas or take a cab. Two issues […] we had: I had to do some laundry and there was only one washer and dryer for the whole hotel. I lost a big chunk of a day running back and forth or sitting there, trying to get in among lots of other people with laundry. The other thing was that the restaurant was way overpriced for breakfast - we didn't even know how much until we got the bill. We weren't told there were two different prices for different parts of the buffet. And the waitress was snooty. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was very nice. I would go there again if I would go to Halifax...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Downtown Halifax at it's Best"
It was really great. We walked almost everywhere - it is so convenient to be able to see all the sights of downtown - the Harbour, the Casino, the sailboat tour, the brewery tour, the art gallery and museum...all within walking distance - how great is that? It is so beautiful and worthwhile to go there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoyed the hotel and the staff. Overall the our stay at this hotel was awesome, comfortable, safe and luxurious. I would definitely return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was great and so were the rooms!!!. We took the limo to the waterfront and the driver told us a great deal about Halifax on the way. To get back we took a cab which cost 10.00 dollars with tip. We had a very nice stay and would recommend the hotel to anyone. The only downside is the hotel is not right on the waterfront, but the hotel rate […] compared with other hotels made up for it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

no windows that can be open in the room for fresh airGenuine Expedia guest review
Great facility and staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
There is a wonderful pool at the hotel and it was very easy for me to do my one mile (50 minutes or so). This hotel used to be a Holiday Inn several years ago. Thank you.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good family hotel"
Gave us nice adjacent rooms and had a nice, deep, pool. If they had free breakfast it would have been perfect.Genuine Expedia guest review
We switched from a 5-star to the Atlantica for a few additional nights and we might as well have stayed at the Atlantica from the beginning - it was that pleasant and accessible!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Place to Stay"
Unfortunately, there was a kid's hockey tournament in action and some of the lads were in rooms too near to us. They were pretty rowdy but the noise died down by midnight. However, the restaurant was far too expensive. We ate there once but not again. And underground parking was $17/day which is a bit steep when we were guests of the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
It's a great hotel, although I wish it was closer to the harbor.Genuine Expedia guest review
Far from thlings to see. Staff vague about area and pick up of airporter. I would not rate this higher than 2 1/2. No food before going to airport. You didn't like my name so if this doesn't go through I'm done!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dated hotel that lacks basic amenities."
This hotel apparently used to be a Holiday Inn. I'm not sure if it's a good or a bad thing that they have been taken over by another group. The hotel lacks basic amenities like a lobby shop or room service and the rooms were small and dark. The parking lot is underground and very cramped. At one point we came home from dinner and the lot was full even […] though we stated that we would be parking there for the duration of our stay, the front desk staff said our only option was to wait until the bar closed to see if some cars cleared out or park down the street. We also wanted to spend a fair amount of time by the waterfront and this hotel is a bit removed. It's a nice walk, but be advised that the area is quite hilly and may not be an easy walk for those with physical limitations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great place to stay in Halifax"
This hotel was a great place to stay. A bit challenging to find space to park if a lot is going on at the same time you are checking in but otherwise, it is clean, with comfortable and spacious rooms. Loved every minute of it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nothing special. Older beds, lumpy pillows, not much decor in rooms, bathroom old and needing repairs and a serious cleaning. My bathroom toilet was not cleaned daily (I stayed 3 days). Showerhead had mold in/on it, tiles were dirty. Room was spartan, nothing special. Overall a decent place. Quick elevators. Parking garage way too small. Filled to capacity […] daily, spaces very small, people parking in traveled lanes. Not enough spaces for guests. I hated to leave my spot for fear that I would not find another, but I was able to. Overall the hotel felt older, like it was recently rennovated in portions, but not everywhere. Ancient/noisy AC/heating unit. Toilet was very loud when flushed. The dining room looked fancy, but my room was not, not in the least bit. If you needed a place to crash, but were not expecting anything very nice, good pick. Solid place, not a dump, but not fancy as the website would lead you to beleive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not real good"
If you like to watch tv do not go here. Very poor lcd screen Extra $20.- for parkingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not exactly 5 star but good value"
My biggest issue with this hotel was parking, but that was because we had a big SUV and parking in the underground parking lot was not easy. If we had a regular car it would have been easier. Otherwise this hotel was great, lots of places to see nearby and lots of food and entertainment choices nearby.Genuine Expedia guest review
It is an excellent hotel. I just left my car at the hotel and walked to town. I have no complaints about it. All the employees were great. They all had a sense of humor and seemed to be enjoying trying to get to know me as a guest.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Atlantica in Halifax - good location + service"
This friendly cheerful hotel located on Quinpool and Robie is within walking distance to the Citadel, Dalhousie University and shops on Qunipool. Not far from downtown Halifax. Seasons restaurant located in the hotel has excellent and unusual fare. Hotel staff is friendly and accommodating. There's a pool, jacuzzi, gym and sauna on the second floor […] with access to an outdoor deck. I highly recommend the Atlantica. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to Dalhousie University"
Convenient location for University student drop-offGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Dalhousie University"
Since we read previous ratings about the Atlantica we were prepared for the extra cost of parking - daily. We feel it should have been advised in the hotel information and perhaps included in the cost. We did not eat in the hotel restaurant so we are not at liberty to critique their menu or costs. (The suite menu does not include costs either.) Overall, […] it is a lovely hotel and very close, within walking distance, to Dalhousie university. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I, personally, appreciated the use of the lobby computer as I was able to communicate with family. We will choose this hotel again when we return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice central location close to the Citadel"
Quiet hotel close to the Citadel, easy walking distance to the downtown core and the sights. Good restaurant. Ample parking. Overall a nice find.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good value! Not right downtown, which is somewhat inconvenient if one hopes to avoid having to park downtown or along waterfront.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Atlantica was a good hotel to stay it. It's relatively close to the Harbourfront area where most of the attractions are. We were pleasantly surprised by the limo service offerred from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM that will take you anywhere you want to go downtown for free. Otherwise, it's about a 20 minute walk to the boardwalk. Good hotel to stay at.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel claims queens size beds in our room they were double only so it was a but tight for myself my wife and two adult children.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel, but ..."
Great hotel, but the in house restaurant had a very limited menu. View was nice, but I did think it odd that my room had a ripped shower curtain. It still functioned, but for the price I would have liked one that was not damaged. Or should I commend them for not wasting? Hmmm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very friendly staff. Family friendly hotel right in the heart of Halifax. Will recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel with good facilities"
Nice room, comfortable and easy walking distance of downtown area. Enjoyed the leisure facilities too. Small extras would have improved the experience - we requested three cups and glasses from housekeeping as we were three in our room but couldn't have them... would have been nice not to have to share cups for the complimentary morning coffee! But […] reception staff were friendly and welcoming Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Checking out Dalhousie"
We booked the Atlantica because it was listed close to Dalhousie and we were in Halifax to tour and check out the university. While the teenagers where sleeping in the mornings, my husband and I walked to Tim Horton's for bagels, Shoppers for a few things we forgot and Canadian Tire. Wendy's was also just the same two short blocks up the road for lunch […] and Domino's was behind the hotel. With two 17+ young adults food close by was awesome. We also had some spare time and explored Citadel Hill across the road and took one afternoon to drive to the tower at Sir Sandford Fleming park and Peggy's Cove. It was a lovely, relaxing outing.

We were there for a wedding so there were a ton of us there. Clean rooms and comfortable beds/pillows. Parking is extra so that was a bit of a surprise but it's was a great location for us and we loved our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely location (if a trek from downtown), great, friendly staff, fair prices, clean, comfortable. You can't ask for anything more.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We booked 2 rooms side by side and one room had been recently renovated with a comfortable bed and mini-fridge. The other room which was connected by an adjoining door was not renovated. We were also on the second floor which was conveniently located near the pool however it was also right by the convention rooms which were noisy in the early morning. […] There is also construction going on in the front of the hotel which started at 645am - not ideal for sleeping in. This being said though, overall the cleanliness and location of the hotel were decent. I booked the hotel on a hotels.com deal so we got what we paid for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Under construction, outdoor parking is gravelled parking lot, underground parking was available, but not easy to understand how to access. Entrance was a detour to the side of the hotel, not front lobby, there was a lot of debris on the carpet, it did not appear clean, mainly from dirt tracked in on footwear over construction area. Only one of the elevators […] was operating, the other was broken and the lights on the elevator did not light up when pushed for Lobby. The buffet breakfast was the exact same thing every day for the three days attending, a variety would have been nice. Parking was not included and was close to an extra $20 per day and this was regardless of whether you parked inside or outside. Rooms were very nice, beds were comfortable, very clean and spacious.

"Good central location"
Nice hotel. Front entrance is currently undergoing some renovations and is closed off. Lots of signs directing you to alternate entrance. Good walking distance to Dalhousie University and Spring Garden Road area. Pool is large and has a 8 foot deep end. Hot tub is HOT - but very nice once you are in. We stayed on 10th floor in one of newly renovated […] rooms. It would have been nice to have queen beds rather than doubles. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Images look good but average at best"
Construction - 17/day parking - would have been nice to know before bookingGenuine Expedia guest review
- Construction was taking place at the front entrance so guests had to enter through a poorly lit side door. - Credit card number entered incorrectly and did not authorize but the front desk staff did not notify me until I was settled upstairs in my room - Heater was extremely noisy - Handle for sink faucet was very sticky and hard to turn on - […] Toilet was loud and took a long time to settle - Water pressure from the bath was so excessive that it produced a deafening sound as water gushed out - Hotel staff entered room while occupied despite door hanger stating "Do not disturb" Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
