Very friendly front desk, small room but with balcony, and only steps from the Market in Ottawa. Makes this an excellent value. Extremely close to several really good restaurants including Murray Street and Navarro, both with acclaimed chefs.

Nice cozy hotel with a great location to the restaurants and market. We took a suite with 2 bedrooms for 4 adults and a child. The suite is not very big, but with a kitchenette and a dinner table for 6, it's very convenient for families. The stuff are polite and helpful. The only reason preventing me to rate it... More

We (mature Couple from Longueil, Quebec) reserved a room with an indoor parking space on July 19 2014 for one night. There are real beautiful paintings throughout the entire Inn including in tour room. We were assigned to room #68 located on the very top floor 6 because we had requested a room far from any type of noise that... More

1/2 block from the market, and the rooms feel like you're staying at a friend's house - simple, comfortable and homey. I loved this hotel and will make it my go-to hotel for all future visits to Ottawa. And they had flat pillows! Great and kind service in the breakfast area, and decent coffee as well....

We stayed here for Canada day. What a location. You are a half a block from the Byward market and all those wonderful restaurants. It took us about 12 minutes to walk to Parliament Hill. We stayed in a room that had two bedrooms. It was great. The room had been upgraded with a nice bathroom and laminate flooring throughout.... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights to take in the Canada Day celebrations. The location is ideal for reaching the major attractions on foot. On site parking is available but abysmally tight, dark, dirty and expensive. Should we stay again, we'd use the spacious paid public lot which is right next door. General impression upon entry to the... More

The hotel is about ½ block from Byward Market. The room was very nice and spacious. And clean. Amenities were nice with an efficiency kitchen, fridge and microwave. Free Wifi. The bed was comfortable. Buffet breakfast was included and was fine. Nothing super special, but much better than many hotels I’ve stayed at. Staff in the dining area were efficient.... More

We spent 2 nites here 6/26 and 6/27/14. It was our 1st time in Ottawa and the location of the Inn was perfect. Located right in Byward Market area, parking was available on-site which was so convenient. We never used our car, just walked everywhere. Enrique, at the front desk was very nice and helpful to us. We were on... More

My wife and I had an impromptu trip to Ottawa to visit a friend who moved recently, and we decided the long drive back to Montreal after dinner would be ill advised, so we decided to stay overnight. **The good has to be the location, as you're right in the byward market and walking distance from just about everything, and...
