Good location, with limited parking and a very friendly atmosphere. The rooms are not huge but well decorated and with some good amenities (nespresso and iPad). Breakfast quite good. Service very friendly. The radiator in the bathroom had a dripping that was annoying but bedding and rest were otherwise good.

My husband and I stayed in Switzerland a few years ago and loved it, so when we were planning our 30 day road trip (and put Ottawa in for two nights) I was very curious about the Swiss Hotel. We've stayed in hotels that claim to be Swiss, but usually are only Swiss in name. I have to say that... More

From the moment we arrived, the welcome from Sabina was perfect. The property does not look like a hotel from the outside but inside, she has thought of everything. Attention to detail was second to none Amazing bed with excellent linen, great spacious room, excellent value for money, and breakfast far in excess of what you would expect for a... More

We stayed here twice because of its convenient location to the University of Ottawa and the Market Place. The rooms are interesting. It is not a Chain Hotel with identical decors for every room. The breakfast was great and the veranda for reading and relaxation was great. We really like the mix-up of modern and old fashioned styles and we... More

I booked a room for a stay in early October. At the time of the booking, I reserved at a higher price so it had cancellation privileges (cheaper rate had no cancellation clause). Due to personal circumstances I was unable to stay the night. I called over 24 hours in advance to cancel, and the hotel worker I spoke to... More

Sabina S, Owner at Swiss Hotel, responded to this review

Dear jdjdee, It is clearly stated that we have a 48hr cancellation policy on all of our literature. The reason for the cancellation policy is to make sure we have time to resell the rooms. We understand that when one doesn't read policies carefully these situations can arise, but explaining that we must stick by our policies is not and... More

The Swiss Hotel is a small 20 room hotel, located in a great area of Ottawa, easy walking distance to restaurants, cafe's, shops, pubs, markets and attractions. We were on the 3rd floor, room 305, which was compact, clean with funky decor. The queen size bed and pillows were comfortable, the AC worked well and there was no safe or... More

We spent one night here, with an early departure the next morning (6am). The check in staff were nice and helpful, the room was cozy, modern and the overall experience with this establishment was perfect. The rooms were just about perfect and well thought out, making good use of the smaller space available. The Nespresso machine and iPad in the... More

Great hotel, Sabina is friendly and so very helpful. Super clean, well decorated and close to Byward Market, the Parliment buildings, Chateau Laurier and more. The bed linens and mattress made for a great sleep.
