The Ambiance is a great B and B close to everything in Ottawa. We were cycling and Maria was very attentive to our needs for directions and buses. The house is that wonderful creaky architecture that is so interesting for Westerners to stay in and our breakfasts were great! Thanks Maria for everything! Kathie and Percy, St. Albert, Alberta

After having performed in a concert in Toronto. My friend drove me to Ottawa and we stayed at this place for 2 nights, the location is downtown with a short 10 - 15 min walk to anywhere. Maria is the hostess of the place and she runs it to perfection. The rooms 1 and 3 we had were charming and... More

The location is excellent and the B&B is very clean. The host is very straightforward so feel free to let her know what you need and she will give you the information you need. The only improvement I could say is that the fruit at breakfast is not fresh but was put into the refrigerator over night.

This September, I stayed for the second time at Ambiance. Maria was, as before, super-hospitable and wonderfully accommodating even though my booking was quite last minute and for a short stay only. The room (no 2, with shared bathroom) was wonderfully comfortable - having a desk is really useful in case one has some work to do. The Wifi works... More

Lovely old building nicely maintained with off street parking, In a very quiet area. In walking distance to all tourist attractions. Maria was very helpful with ideas for restaurants and in directions for where all attractions were with maps supplied. Beautiful rather large breakfast, you certainly don't leave hungry. Tea and coffee making facilities freely available with ironing board also... More

We stayed 2 nights and agree with all the other reviews that have been done. I confirm that the breakfast was gourmet and we attended to hand and foot by the hostess Maria. It could not be better located to be able see all the main sights of Ottawa by foot. I should have booked a room with a bathroom.

We stayed here for two nights, booking 3 of the 4 rooms. All the rooms were clean and everything was as described. The breakfast each morning was plentiful and our hostess remembered the few food allergies of our family and prepared accordingly. The lounge is equipped with a laptop/internet access as well as the more usual items. The first floor... More

We stayed at Maria's B & B for our daughter's graduation this June for a total of five nights and had a wonderful experience. Maria is a super host and an awesome cook! The only regrets that we have is to not have discovered Ambiance's B & B sooner, and to not have taken pictures of the most artistic and... More

Very quiet and safe area to walk in the heart of downtown. Maria was very friendly and very knowledgeable of the city of Ottawa. We were in room # 4. Wonderfully decorated with calm color, pictures and accessories. Very clean and excellent morning breakfast. Maria caters to everybody's dietary needs. Home could not be more comfortable. Make sure to ask... More

Quiet, spacious, conveniently located to downtown Ottawa, clean B&B ran by a friendly, well-organised landlord who makes everything possible to make one's stay a memorable one. See you, next year, Maria
