A quaint, delightful small inn within walking distance of the Market, Rideau Center, Parliament Hill and more! The rooms are very European in style with amenities such as wine glasses, tea kettle, tea cups, ipad! Great experience!

I have been looking for a great hotel in Ottawa for a long time, and have finally found it! The owner is lovely, accommodating and really cares about the experience of each guest. My room was rather compact, but very carefully thought out with all the luxuries you would associate with a top end hotel, a beautiful bathroom, a comfortable... More

I recently stayed one night in their basic double room. It was compact, but had enough space for an evenings stay. The room had a very modern look and feel. And, it was in excellent shape. It felt like a room worth twice the rack rate, if not for the limited floor space and lack of elevator. My room was... More

I have stayed at the Swiss Hotel during the week for up to 8 times a year during the past 4 years, while visiting our plant in nearby Gatineau. I'm a manager travelling frequently to Canada and USA (from Switzerland) and was happy to find the Swiss Hotel in Ottawa, with unparallelled hospitality and providing a homely feeling. The hotel...

I have stayed at this hotel 1-2 times every week for the past 8 months for school. I'm a student at the university of ottawa and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. On my first visit before booking, I had to pick up a phone and get buzzed in (this was my favorite part). If you dont have a key to... More

I stayed here twice in November for 4 nights each time while on business in Ottawa. Here are the things that I really liked about the hotel: 1) Location - it is within walking distance to Byward Market and the Rideau Centre (shopping mall) and in a very quiet residential area. Some people have commented that they did not feel... More

Stayed here for 2 nights for 20th anniversary trip in jacuzzi/fireplace suite. Very spacious and well appointed. Nice touch to have hot chocolate in room instead of just coffee and tea. Tea lights provided for ambience. Did not try breakfast. Little difficult getting room temperature perfect with rads but we have no experience with them so maybe our fault. You... More

Stayed two nights on the third floor. The room was very clean and cozy, perfect for a couple. Bed was very comfortable. IPads in the room were a nice touch. No real complaints about the room or the building at all. The only downside was the parking - there are only four spots in a very open, unprotected area. If... More

We enjoyed staying at this small, very European hotel with refreshing modern decor. You are assured of a friendly welcome from the owner who also produces the most wonderful breakfasts, if you want just a coffee and toast you may not want to purchase this. The rooms as others have said are not large but they very well fitted and... More
