Stayed at the Swiss Hotel for three nights while in Ottawa playing tourist. Excellent location allowed us to walk to all major attractions. Very clean. Comfortable bed, well appointed room. Appealing European vibe. Fantastic breakfast available in lovely lower level dining room/lounge/patio. Owner Sabina is very friendly and accommodating. Reasonable rates. Will definitely recommend the Swiss Hotel to others, and... More

Spent 2nights this past weekend. We opted for the larger queen room when we booked on line. The room size was good for a small B an B style hotel, the bathroom does lack shelf space, but we made it work. Bed and pillows were comfortable and no real road noise, my only suggestion would be to add blackout drapes... More

This was the only room in town, but I was pleasantly surprised. I had a small, compact room, but it had everything I needed. There are no elevators though, so you carry your own bags up the stairs. Walls are thin though, so a noisy neighbor it a problem. Another guest asked them to quiet down, and they did, but... More

The Swiss hotel is nice, rooms are maybe a bit small, especially our bathroom. However service is good. The neighborhood is not so nice however, it's just half way between the touristic area, and the not the recommended street of Ottawa. So don't walk there late if you're a girl. We had no problem however.

Thank you for the kind words, We would like to emphasize that our hotel is in the heart of the downtown core of Ottawa - we are two blocks south from the Byward Market,two blocks east of the Ottawa Convention Centre, and north of the University of Ottawa. Our neighbourhood is actually the residential area for the University, which hosts... More

Stayed there for 3 nights over July 4th weekend. Sabine (the owner) was very lovely at explaining how everything worked regarding breakfast and what was and was not included with our rate. Breakfast was fantastic especially the Bircher Muesli and any number of eggs served upon request. I much preferred the lovely garden patio and setting for breakfast rather than... More

If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful, European-style getaway in the heart of Ottawa, you can't do better than the Swiss Hotel on Daly Street. The beds are comfy, the sheets swiss-dot cotton. The bathroom is tiled in a deep merlot-colored tile with light aqua accents. Shower has glass "wall," no door. Rain showerhead. The floors are wood and... More

When I called to confirm the guy read my request said ok but when we got there we got a regular room. The room we got we... More

We had our wedding night there, we took the Honeymoon suite, it's really beautiful, traditional wooden floor, and beautiful bed, nice jacuzzi. The only con is that for the price we paid, the parking was not included and also the breakfast was not too. The reception staff was really nice. So overall a good place if you want quiet time.
