Stayed for 5 nights. Room was perfect, well kept, and clean. Hotel close to Rideau Centre, a grocery store, and many restaurants in the Byward Market area. Owner was very pleasant and co-operative. Heard some noise on the streets as the bars closed and patrons walked home, but only for about 10 minutes each night and is to be expected... More

One of the more reasonably priced options in Downtown Ottawa. Rooms are comfortable but not very large. The hotel (really more like a B&B than a hotel) is well located, though on the seedier side of the downtown core. Breakfasts are great if somewhat pricey. The one major problem with the room was that it was extremely hot (visited during... More

Hello, Thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear that you found it too warm at the hotel! The temperature in the room is adjustable (little knob on the radiator), and all of our windows open for fresh air. We try to maintain the building at a temperature that is comfortable for all of our guests, but we... More

This is a great place to stay if you're up for trying something different than your typical Ottawa hotel. The rooms are comfortable and well kept, but it is the funky decor that really stands out. Only thing I was wary of was that noise seemed to carry easily between the rooms and the hallway, but it never became a... More

Have stayed here on two occasions and find it the perfect central location to enjoy the sights of Ottawa. Close to Parliament Hill, Rideau Canal and Byward Market. We just parked the car and walked during our three day stay. The small hotel was like being at home - quiet neighbourhood and very comfortable. Very European vibe and a friendly... More

Ottawa hotels were booked solid two weeks ago when I remembered having once been in a charming hotel, more a B&B, but very central and thus convenient.But when I called to make a reservation, they could not take me for the 3 nights I wanted but offered the Honeymoon suite for a much higher price reduced to C$ 235x3, a...

Fuhgetabout your loyalty program points and stay here. Glad I was at this gem, rather than the nearby convention host hotel on Rideau Canal. The 10 minute walk gave me exercise plus a unique stay, with quiet steam heat instead of forced air, free WiFi, contemporary bath and shower, iPad in room, chocolates by the bed, lots of hot beverage...

I stayed here while attending a conference at the convention center in Ottawa. Absolutely loved this place, from the European styling and friendly staff, to the strong wifi and convenient location. My room was large, updated, and immaculate. The breakfasts were well worth the small extra expense (fresh fruits, cheeses, coldcuts, yoghurt, breads, lattes, french toast, and more). Beautiful historic... More

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
