The ALT Hotel Halifax Airport serves its purpose as a temporary home base for those with layovers or early/late flights into and out of Nova Scotia’s capital city. And with complimentary Wi-Fi, an indoor swimming pool, fitness center, and even an onsite restaurant, you and kids won’t want for anything during your short stay here. The funky dÃ©cor is great eye candy, too.
Bonus: Room rates at The ALT Hotel Halifax Airport are never more than 154 CAD, making it a budget-friendly option.

We have stayed many times. Love the hotel, however the lady that I met at the counter Friday night put me in a really bad mood quickly. We were standing in line waiting to check in, my husband decided to go park. I was next In Line, she took my ID and credit card and then handed back saying I can’t check you in it’s not in your name. Very rudely just kept refusing. Never offered a solution just told me over and over no it’s not your room. Finally I said check the card it’s booked on it’s mine!!! After a 5 minute argument she checked me in. Not before ruining my night. She could of nicely said we just have to wait for your husband but she never. She was rude just kept saying no and it’s not my room!
We arrived late on our arrival to Nova Scotia but given a warm welcome. Easy check-in a few feet from the bar and breakfast area. Friendly staff. The rooms and beds were comfortable plus surprisingly comfortable. We also stayed there on the way back home for an excellent first and last night of a vacation. No running to return the car or get to the airport during rush hour. PCs were available for airline travel docs. Breakfast sep-up was a little casual and frankly confusing but fine.
There are no family activities at the ALT Hotel Halifax Airport.
Altcetera is open 24 hours a day, serving light bites for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus grab-and-go-snacks and coffee drinks. Food service stops in the middle of the night (grab-and-go items can still be purchased), but resumes at 5:30 a.m. for breakfast.
