                    Location and that's all we liked

                    It was a disaster! They didn't have the rooms I had reserved and paid for several months before. They finally found 2 but 1 was not what I requested. The rooms were dirty, needed painting, the carpet was filthy, there were chips out of the counter and in one room the drapes were ripped. You can't call a room deluxe just because you put an off white bathrobe on the bed. It was a terrible stay. The staff were not at all concerned about the whole situation. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

                  • Older travelers
                    7.4

                    The Citadel Halifax is centrally located to several attractions and shopping in downtown Halifax so a person can walk to all of those events.

                    The air conditioner didn't work well in the room we were in.

                  • Older travelers
                    10.0

                    location, size of the room and staff

                    I wish the staff would have informed me about all the facilities at the hotel when checking in like the pool and spa. I didn't use them as I wasn't aware they were there.

                  • Couple
                    6.6

                    A very nice gym and pool space is on the first floor of the hotel.

                    room was musty (we opened the windows and it was fine) and the carpeting, etc., was old. You can deal with it, but keep your expectations in order. Citadel compares favorably to a Days Inn, Ramada Inn, not a business Hilton or business Holiday Inn.

                  • Group of friends
                    6.6

                    It was close to the downtown area

                    Roomservice was done at 9pm, older 20 inch CRT tv, no fridge in the room, and I booked a smoking room but got a non smoking room!!!

                  • Family with children
                    8.2

                    I didn't like the idea that I was charged for on site parking, especially since it was free on the streets for the weekend.

                  • Single
                    8.2

                    I was in Halifax visiting friends and to go to the Casino Casino is close to the hotel Nice walking distance to events

                    No real complaints Staff friendly Furniture in room a bit worn but still comfortable.

                    We loved having the pool. It was just the right size and it was nice to also have the hot tub. Very relaxing! Jessica was also very helpful and friendly on the front desk.

                    We didn't like that the alarm clock was set to go off loudly and early in the morning. We were out very late and it woke us from a very deep sleep. We felt the maid should have checked that before we took over the room.

                    Friendly staff. Great location.

                    Room was cold at night and the heat could not be controlled. Thje buttons on the unit didn't work.

                    Fast, efficient, great value for money, comfortable, has all the amenities: room service, pool, spa, centre of city, close to sports & entertaiment fCilities (walking distance), etc.

                    Credit card use - credit card was debited for check-in although Booked.net assured there was no requirement to do so, and this debit has remained on the credit card account to date (some four days after the stay) even though the total bill was paid with cash. Also the Booked.net information (before reservation) stated that there would be no cancellation policy - in fact there is a full fee cancellation charge if reservation is canelled after midnight of the day two days before the check-in day, i.e. The earliest book-in time is stated as 3:00pm, if the reservation is cancelled one minute after 12.00am of the day before (39 hours - over a day Nd onehalf) the full night's fee is charged as a penalty. Also, a vehicle parking fee is charged.

                    The generously sized room was much appreciated. I enjoyed the easy way staff switched between English and French. I also liked the willingness to offer non-menu items for breakfast. The rooming staff were flexible and we didn't feel pushed out of our room for their convenience, which is something which happens in some hotels.

                    The room heating unit was noisy and had to be switched off to allow sleep. Normally it might not have mattered but I was jet lagged, feeling cold and needed some daytime shut-eye.

                    Reception and staff was friendly

                    No wireless in the room. Conversations from other room could be heard. The air in the 10th floor could be freshened-too much smoking smell even in the corridors.

                    The staff was friendly enough. The people serving in the restaurant were very nice and friendly, eating there was a nice occasion

                    The hotel is starting to look worn... Our room could have been better it needs some renovations... it was still acceptible

                    the front staff were nice

                    i found the hotel bed to be worn out - i am certain that it was not a queen size bed as adcvertised - the hall on the 6th floor was dirty when i checked in with glass in the carpet -- when i checked out 2 days later the carpet had not been cleaned - in my room there was several days of dust on the furniture
