Excellent room, comfortable bed, jacuzzi bath in our room. Excellent breakfast with lots of choice cooked to order. Hotel within walking distance of Parliament buildings and By Ward district. On direct bus route from airport (stop just across road). Hotel retains lots of original features. Overall, highly recommended

Nicely located just a few blocks from the central hub of down town Ottawa. Definitly within walking distance of all activities. Extremely clean, pleasant and accommodating staff and owner. Breakfast was amazing (included with your nights stay). It was a full menu with everything from hot and cold cereal, to eggs cooked as you liked to French toast or pancakes... More

It felt like visiting your grandmothers' house with several classic and elegant touches to furniture and decor and so it had that homey feel. Staff serving breakfast were all very cheery and friendly. Everything we had was delicious - eggs, pancakes, sausages and Wild blueberry pancakes. It was quiet in our room even though we were there for Blues Festival.

The room was comfortable and the breakfasts were absolutely wonderful. Best blueberry pancakes, ever. A very good selection of hot breakfast items, all cooked to order. Homemade muffins and continental breakfast items also available. Coffee and tea available in the lounge when kitchen is closed. The room had a shower, so if a tub is needed, inquire when making reservations.... More

Thanks for the kind remarks - we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We are quite proud of our breakfasts and it is rewarding to know that you enjoyed your selections.

We had a very nice stay at the Albert House Inn. A historic building located on a quite street in downtown Ottawa. The room was very clean! There was a very cute sitting room in the front, with newspapers, magazine, books and a coffee maker for all the guests. The breakfast was wonderful, and made on order, so very fresh.... More

From the minute we arrived until the minute we left, the owners and staff made us feel welcome and at home. They went out of their way to accommodate 4 couples travelling together by providing a lounge area where we could meet and relax together. There was always fresh muffins in the basket and a coffee/ tea station well stocked... More

Extraordinary location with great service in Ottawa, a true hidden gem! I went to Ottawa on a government related trip, everybody else stayed at the supposedly reknown hotels but loved mine, the hotel made the difference. There is no elevator but the place is definitely worted, breakfast is fantastic and the service has no comparison.

I don´t know why I always try to go to Ottawa when everybody else does. Then, it is not easy to get a room in a hotel. Albert House Inn was the only place where I found one (a single). Well, it was such a wonderful surprise! The place is clean, charming, and the employees are helpful and friendly. Breakfast... More

Albert House Inn is a little haven of tranquility in the centre of Ottawa. Close to everything (walking distance to Parliament and other attractions), but peaceful, clean, and comfortable, with a tasty breakfast included. the rooms are simple but comfortable. And cheaper than the big hotels. The Ottawa transit bus from the airport stops right outside the door, so you... More
