Booked the hotel through Booking.com for a room with 2 double beds. There was 4 adults staying for a couple days. When I checked in, they had given us a King size bed instead & told that there wasn't any other rooms available. Luckily, our room had a pull out sofa bed. Rooms were small, but modern looking and comfy.... More

I've stayed here several times and keep coming back since the location places you within walking distance of several attractions. The style is decidedly "Euro" and is a nice departure from the ordinary. The rooms are quite unique and I usually get a good rest here. There's ample room to do some work and the wifi connection is solid all... More

You definitely cannot beat the location of this hotel but that's about it. The rooms are quite small & very average. the bar is extremely overpriced for what you can get a... More

Perfect location. Near parliament, Byward market ,museums,shopping mall. Even if you just want to have as stroll. Breakfast buffet at 9.15 h. was a mess. Maybe if you try it at 7.00h...Beds were ok, but can be better. (F.i. Novotel in Vaughn had better ones!).

Stayed here for 2 nights July. Found the hotel to be perfectly located, within easy walking distance of the touristy things we wanted to do- Parliament, Rideau Centre, river, canal and Bywater Market. The hotel itself was fine- comfy, clean room - not huge, but fine with a modern, small bathroom with a very good shower. We didn't use the... More

The hotel is located next to the Laurier shopping mall and is easily accesible by public transport (bus line 97 from Halifax airport stops at McKenzie Bridge, then a five minute walk to the hotel). The suites are comfortable with separate bath room and bed room. TV screens are put in the living and in the bed room. The staff... More

Hotel is located conveniently 2 blocks South of the Byward Market, a 10 Min walk from Parliament Hill/Rideau Canal and across the street from the Rideau Centre. While the building itself is dated the rooms have been updated and are quite comfortable. Pros - Great location; clean updated rooms; helpful staff; good restaurant Cons - Pay For parking (but hey...

The hotel and room were clean and the room was a decent size but the bathroom was on the small side. The room was recently renovated and the bed was comfy. It was on the 9th floor and we were not bothered by any noise but don’t expect a view. The staff were pleasant. Hotel is conveniently located to the... More

My husband and I stayed here for a few days and found the hotel to be close to all we wanted to do. It is within easy walking distance of the Market, Parliament and museums and galleries.
