We stayed at the Swiss hotel In October on our fall foliage trip to New England, the Adirondacks and Canada.Our stay was excellent, a great breakfast available at a good price. Our room was good, perhaps a bit too much furniture, but with a bit of shifting, we had plenty of room. The bed was comfortable. We were on the... More

While in Ottawa for our Sons wedding we stayed at the Swiss Hotel August 26th - August 31st 2014. We found the Swiss Hotel quite by chance and could not have been happier with our choice as the rooms were extremely clean and the staff very pleasant.The location is perfect for downtown Ottawa and you can walk everywhere needed. We... More

I stayed here for a week while attending a conference. I hadn't realised just how convenient the hotel would be both during the day and at night. It's five minutes from the front door to the convention centre - you spend more time waiting at crossings than you do walking! It's also a very short walk from a host of... More

This 22-room hotel is like a little slice of Europe in the heart of Ottawa's downtown. Excellent location - very close to the convention centre, the University of Ottawa, and the Byward Market. The rooms vary in size - I had the standard double room at the back of the building which was very quiet, but it was small. That... More

We chose this hotel after reading great reviews and my review will be just as good. This place is warm and cozy and yet walking distance to many attractions, including the Byward Market, Parliament, many museums, and the Rideau Canal. We had a room with a queen bed and private bath and were thrilled to see that bathrobes were included.... More

I picked this hotel after reading very positive tripadvisor reviews. It is located close to everything (U of Ottawa, transit, Byward market, Rideau Centre, etc) which was ideal for my 3 day stay. The hotel was very quiet, I did not hear any other guests. Had a room on the third floor. No elevator so it was a nice little... More

First but definitely not the last time to this hotel. Very cozy, friendly & hospitable. Room is lovely & comfortable. Great breakfast , pretty much everything is homemade, delicious coffee. Easy to walk everywhere. If you struggle with fitness ask for a room on 1st or 2nd floor, the stairs are a workout :) Will come back in the summer... More

My wife and I stayed here immediately after our wedding, looking for a place that was quiet, easily-accessible and without a 'chain' hotel feel. The Swiss Hotel turned out to be all three. Despite its central location, the hotel is very quiet. This particular part of downtown Ottawa feels removed from the hustle and bustle just blocks away. The hotel... More

We stayed in room 307 at Swiss hotel, which features no less than three windows, all of which open (open!) onto a quiet residential street. The room is large, with fireplace, fridge, writing desk and reading chairs. The bathroom is in a separate room than the shower, both ensuite. Incredibly comfortable bed and duvet and, again, windows that open. Breakfasts... More

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
