I am sad to say that after one night at this hotel I had to cancel the rest of my reservation and book a new place to stay. It was noisy, street lights were bright right outside window and too many problems all around. I had to regularly call to get my internet set back up and when I first... More

Was here recently for an entire week. These guys did not disappoint. Technically the hotel has the value of an average Days Inn place: but the management has added small perks which makes your dollar stretch. The free hot breakfast is total value for money and help you save a lot of time (in other places, I have to shower... More

ByWard Blue Inn is a very modest, simple hotel. Nothing fancy. The bed is comfortable and there are balconies to sit out on in warmer weather. I didn't have the free breakfast as I usually prepare my own meals. The kitchenette is a pretty simple set-up, just a refrigerator, a cabinet with basic utensils, dishes, etc. and a microwave. The...

This hotel is a great location--you are super close to the Byward Market and lots of good food options (from very very reasonable to upscale restaurants) and a 15-20 minute walk from the Parliament and surrounding area. I stayed here when doing research at Library and Archives Canada and the walk was easy and enjoyable. I had a great room... More
