Owners are friendly and accommodating. The rooms are large, spacious and modern. Had and ipad in the room, with high speed Internet, ipod dock and music player.The location is also good, just a two minuet walk from the main street, restraunts and night life. Had a great stay.

Have not stayed here but disappointed at their inflexible policy for business travel. Had to change my reservation which was fine. Then had to cancel with 48 hr notice. Lady on the phone was very rude, did not listen and only emphasized that she would be charging me for one night. Disappointing - with business travel can't always make things... More

Look no further! Here is the centrally located, completely renovated, super clean independent hotel in Ottawa. You can walk to Parliament Hill or By Market, see the tulips and walk along the canal. Rooms are modern, well furnished, including your own ipad! Your host Sabina cooks her own bread and no PhD in decoration would beat her. Come enjoy this... More

The Swiss Hotel is nestled in a small residential neighborhood just a few minutes walk from the Byward Market, a major tourist spot in Ottawa. If you are really into walking, the Parliament buildings are an easy walk as well. We stayed in a queen suite at the Swiss Hotel. The room was large, well-furnished, and included a gas fireplace...

I found Swiss Hotel last year after my original hotel arrangement fell through. Staying here was one of the highlights of my trip! Excellent service, clean rooms, and the decor made it feel like home for me. I would take staying here over any hotel in Ottawa!

Upon arriving at the Swiss Hotel, we were given a lovely welcome and provided with maps and directions. The hotel is located close enough to the main centre to walk within 5 minutes, very close to the University. So whilst you don't get much traffic noise, there are a lot of students walking past the hotel. We stayed in the... More

Excellent bed, fine design, prime location and gracious host - not your typical cookie cutter lodging experience. Came for Winterlude and enjoyed everything especially the winter wonderland experience. Will stay again. Thanks Swiss Hotel!

We booked the King Suite for a three-night stay, and were rather underwhelmed. First the good aspects: location was quiet at night and close to Byward Market, bed was comfortable, breakfast (not included) was pretty good, staff were nice and helpful! Now the underwhelming aspects: our room was very odd. It was large - but the second room appears to... More

I stayed at this hotel for a week long meeting in Ottawa. The location was ideal for the meeting. This is an historical house transformed into a small hotel. My room was clan and nicely decorated. It look like the ones you could get in Europe, small but functional. The noise level isn't perfect between rooms and the street but... More

I chose this hotel for my girlfriend and I to stay at due to the nature of the rooms. They have a much more modern look and feel when compared to other hotels with comparable cost. The location played a role too as we like to check out the Byward Market on our Ottawa trips. We arrived a little early... More
