Nice hotel in the byward market. The hotel is clean and the staff was helpful. The parking is 15 CAD for a night (from check in to check out). It is under the hotel with limited places (8). We were 2 nights and we did not need to move the car because we could walk almost to all attractions. A... More

My wife and I stayed three nights - August 18 - 20,2015. This hotel does all the little things very well,but goes that bit extra to make your stay memorable such as the complimentary bottled water in your room daily; umbrella tree by the entrance door for guest use; tea time in the afternoon with a selection of crackers,cheese,delicious home...

They had a fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and iron. . Breakfast was burrito, egg mcmuffin, cereal, fruit. croissant. Parking on the street is free from 6 pm to 8 am... More

Quaint and trendy with great customer service. Right in the market, close to everything, but on a quiet street. Afternoon tea and a hot breakfast inside or on their patio is a great treat! Large rooms, some with balconies, with bar fridge, plates, cutlery and glasses.

My daughter her Friend and I stayed at this Great Hotel in mid July 2015, for a Long Weekend. We wanted to stay in the ByWard Market area, so we could just park the car, and not have to worry about finding parking for the weekend. The Parking could not be more convenient......Next Door......with the rates being the same as... More

The hotel location couldn't be better. The hotel is steps away from 100 restaurants and from the wonderful market which is open 7 days a week. Our hotel room was small but adequate, clean and quiet with good air conditioner. We enjoyed the breakfast which is served with great efficiency and plenty of food. The staff is helpful. The underground... More

I loved this place and wished that I had planned to stay in Ottawa longer than I did. The Byward Market area of Ottawa is one of the best areas in terms of proximity to cultural sites and restaurants and it has a wonderful upbeat vibe. The Byward Blue Hotel is ideally situated just doors away from the restaurants and... More

I reserved here based on TripAdvisor research and then worried I'd made the wrong choice. Not so. This is the place to stay if you want interesting, clean, boutique-type accommodation right in the Market area instead of the government area. Upsides: big room, comfy, clean white bed, door to balcony with table and chairs, a/c (portable unit, on floor), window... More

Great location with affordable rates. Walking distance to the Market area with all the shops and restaurants, and easily walkable to the other great attractions around. We had nice room in the back that was very clean and quiet. Friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again.
