This is a university dorm turned hotel for the summer so very boring and lacking in the comforts of a hotel. However it is well located close to downtown and an excellent vegetarian restaurant (the green door) is across the street. The beds are comfortable but double size not queen, no mattress protector very basic linens, no extra pillows provided....... More

This "hotel" is good value for money however we spent about 30 minutes going up and down the street looking for it!!!. It is nicely tucked away behind the campus of St Paul University ( away from the construction noise) and is actually located on Hazel street. Most cab drivers are unable to find it, until they get a description... More

We as a family, 3 people, stayed at this hotel for one night. Quiet place, friendly and helpful staff. For the money we paid, around $90.00, I doubt that you can find a better place to stay in Ottawa. We walked to the city center along the "Rideau Canal". Good and relaxing experience. I recommend this place.

This hotel offers big bedrooms with a very good price. Me and my friend went there for conference travel, and we got a two-bedroom place for 100$/day. The rooms are big and clean, with a good view of the garden. Breakfast: it is just so-so breakfast. We would be happier if we had more options to choose from. In this... More

The Residence gives a non-traditional option. As a student residence, you get a kitchenette and two bedrooms. Big people alert: the beds are smallish twin-size! Interesting, quiet neighbourhood, minutes from most points of interest in Ottawa.

Perfect affordable stay in Ottawa. A little off downtown, but offers possibility of prepare meals with microwave and fridge. The suite includes rooms with each a double bed (on the smaller side,not a queen). Continental breakfast included. Easy access to downtown. Only downside was the difficulty to find the place. Entryway is not well indicated.

This is student housing repurposed as a hotel until students come back for the term. It was very clean, but that is the best thing about it. The "2 bedroom Suite" we paid for was two bedrooms which each had a double bed, a kitchen and bathroom. The shower was the size of showers on a cruise ship. We were... More

Travelers beware, this is not the place to bring your new date for a romantic escapade. But to those who, like myself, travel a lot for business and are eager to find convenient, cost-efficient lodging options, I say: this might be your spot. Yes, this is a university residence converted into a hotel for the summer season. But as I... More
