We stayed 3 nights the end of May-first of June, 2015. Maria is a very accomodating hostess and provides wonderful breakfasts. She also has lots of helpful and practical information to share. This B&B is very quiet and within easy walking distance to parliament hill (20 minute seniors' stroll). There is free off-street parking, free soft drinks and a place... More

I came to Ottawa for four nights when the only room left was Room 2, on the third floor. Clean, great location for my office and amazing breakfasts! The hike up to the third floor hard with the steep staircase to the final floor with my carryon luggage, but it has an ensuite. On the first floor, there is the... More

The breakfasts are amazing! Maria is a very friendly and knowledgeable host. The location is perfect; close to downtown, Parliament Hill, the university and bus routes. The price is reasonable and the area is very quiet. I highly recommend it.

We loved our stay at Maria's house. It was very comfortable and the breakfast were awesome. There was a free wifi and the localization was perfect. Probably when we will return to Ottawa, we will stay there.

My spouse and I stayed here for the third time this past May for the Ottawa Race Weekend. Our previous visits with Maria were so enjoyable we just had to stay again. We always try to reserve room 2 because we love how quiet and private it feels. It's a very comfortable room. Breakfasts were awesome as usual and we... More

Séjour très agréable dans cette maison près du centre d'Ottawa. Maria permet de se sentir très bien dans une ambiance très calme et reposante. Et les petits déjeuners copieux et pris dans une ambiance conviviale et internationale. Merci à Maria. Great time in this cosy and nice house. It was like being at home with a great attentive hostess ready... More

Maria is a wonderful host. We had many great conversations over breakfast. I felt like I was at a friend's home. The location was perfect... walking distance to the Parliament buildings, the Byward market and our conference location. Was very happy that I stayed at Ambiance B and B rather than a hotel.

The hotel that our conference was in was booked, but this was the better option anyway! Only 2 blocks from the Delta (a lovely walk in the morning) and and easy walk to Parliament/Byward Market/Rideau Centre. Fantastic breakfast in the morning and the host, Maria, was great to chat with. She has made me a believer in B&B's again (after... More

Maria is very well organized. Her directions were clear and helpful which made everything easy - from where to park the car to how to get to the train station. Breakfasts were always delicious and ample. The room was exactly as advertised.

Ambiance Bed and Breakfast is in a quiet neighborhood. Maria is and excellent host and can help you with questions you have what to see, and if she doesn't know she will go out of her way to find it out for you. The place is clean and neat and the breakfasts are delicious!!!! It is a home away from... More
