I stayed at the Residence and Conference Centre - Ottawa Downtown, this past July. It was excellent accommodations. I would recommend this type of accommodations for anyone who requires simple and less expensive stay than a traditional hotel. My room was very clean and well kept and came with a kitchenette, which would come in handy for someone staying at... More

It is right next door to the university. Very clean, rooms are spacious with a very nice view of the park. Breakfast is simple but good. Staff is ok, however they threw away a bag with non perishables, claiming it was perishables, in less than 24 hours, which was upsetting.

Basic student dorms that are used as a hotel with a bathroom, mini-kitchen, two separate rooms. Very clean!!! Honestly, everything you need. FREE wifi and FREE parking. My colleagues and I stayed here for the CPA convention, which was hosted at the Westin downtown (10 minute drive, 30-min walk from our place). Breakfast is a little bit poor, but appreciated...

This place is a gem. It is on an exquisitely forested property. It's a quiet oasis in a large town. For someone who enjoys simplicity and peace and quiet. Our experience was positive from booking to check out!

We needed a spot on short notice and a tight budget. These dorm style accommodations were perfect. Our room was clean, quiet and the wifi was super fast. The kitchenette was a bonus. Downtown was walkable.

This accommodation had a kitchenette and 2 bedrooms and dining area and attached bathroom. It was clean and spacious and had a nice view from the windows. It met my immediate requirements, so I was quite satisfied. Infact next day when I wanted to book another night, they had no vacancy at all. Given the price, it was good accommodation.... More

THis hotel let me think of a renovated college structure, used as an hotel. There are no rooms but basic apartments with entrance, bathroom, mini-kitchen and two separated rooms with everything you need. Everything is very basic but clean and "complete". You could live there for months! Breakfast is a little bit poor, the second day we bought some things... More

It's clean, neat with fresh smell the moment we opened the door. A full size refrigerator and a microwave in the kitchen also makes guest's stay more convenient and economic, in addition to the very competitive price. The place is 5 minutes drive from downtown, very suitable for a family or a small group travelling with a car as every... More

My husband and I stayed for a few days at the Residence while in Ottawa. It was convenient (despite the unavoidable construction on Main Street) and affordable and the staff were friendly. The cafeteria in the next building had good, affordable food with some prepared meals. This is an advantage because, although the room we stayed in had a refrigerator... More
