The positive side of this B&B is the thoughtfulness that went into providing extras as mentioned in other reviews, and the cleanliness of the shower, toilet and sink. Also, its close proximity to the Parliament buildings and other points of interest is good. Aside from that there is nothing that I can recommend. I was there for two nights and... More

I guess the positive side was that you acknowledged a positive side so, thank you for that. The rest of course is subjective but sadly these sites allow for all opinions to be posted regardless of truthfulness or accountability on the consumer’s part. As a consumer and traveler myself, I find it much more effective and satisfying to bring things... More

Ambiance is the epitome of a B&B experience - full breakfast, clean and comfortable accommodation, and convenient location. But wait, there's more! Maria has travelled extensively and understands what tourists need, and what they forget. In your room there are a few little extras that you might just need or might simply prefer to feel special because it was there,... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Ambiance, it was a short walk to the city and nearby were some good places to for dinner, not that we needed much as Maria's breakfasts were epic (she's a great cook) she was very helpful with directions to places and how to get there and I thank her for all her help, her...

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.
