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...

After five nights at the Byward Blue Inn my wife and i checked out early on Jan 2, and were told the day before that the receipt for payment would be sent to me by email. Come Jan 5th and I had not received the statement. The front desk person wrote my email address down at the time he promised... More

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

This was a find for a last minute business trip to Ottawa. It was a very pleasant surprise ! Lovely rooms , super clean, and charming. The breakfast was great with lots to choose from. The front desk was very helpful with directions and dinner recommendations. The price was very reasonable - only good things to say about this welcoming... More

A very good hotel for the price. Comfortable and roomy. The front desk ( Lumi ) checked me in although I came in at 12.30 pm with a check in of 4 pm. Would certainly recommend it if you are spending a few days in the Byward Market area.

This is a well-maintained older hotel with a quiet, nicely-equipped room. We were on the fourth floor and could see the Parliament buildings from the funky roof-top balcony. Lots of restaurants and bars. Street parking was easy even on a Saturday night. Would definitely try to stay here again.

Excellent location, large room, and the best breakfast I've had in a hotel in a very long time. The bed pillows were a bit hard and the hotel is a bit dated (you can see it in the paint and the elevator) but the room had every amenity (hairdryer, iron, coffee maker, microwave, fridge, shampoo/conditioner/lotion) and the location could not...
