The Byward Blue Inn is an excellent base from which to explore the core of Ottawa. It is not a full service hotel, rather it is more an upscale hostel and very well priced. The rooms are large, bright, clean and offer an efficiency kitchen; they also include a desk, wall TV and free Wi-Fi. My room featured a balcony.... More

We stayed for two nights at the Byward Blue Inn and were very happy with our choice. The Inn is a small, boutique hotel located within walking distance to Parliament Hill, the Byward Market, and Rideau Centre. Our room was small but comfortable. There was a small kitchenette counter with a fridge, microwave and coffee maker included. We were on... More

As a budget hotel this cannot be beat. Very clean, great location, parking ( for pay, but cheap) very nice breakfast, great coffee, and a small kitchen. We'll be back. Really fantastic value. Highly recommended!

We stayed for two nights at the By Ward Blue Inn. The hotel is within walking distance to the By Ward Market and a short drive to the museums and Parliament. The hotel is fairly small, but the room we certainly big enough and had a full kitchen. The complimentary breakfast had a nice selection of hot and cold food.... More

We stayed just one night in Ottawa and chose the ByWard Blue as being a small place in good location. It exceeded all of our expectations. Eugene, the Receptionist (? also Entertainer and Tourist Advisor and all round great bloke) helped us and about three other lots of guests understand where to go, what to do, what to make sure...

The ByWard Blue is a charming hotel, located literally, one block from the Byward Market. For the price, it's the greatest value one can find for the proximity to the Byward Market, Canadian Museum of Nature, National Art Gallery, and Parliament, while still retaining privacy and avoiding all the noise. Pros: -One block from Byward Market. -Clean, comfortable rooms, with... More

Very nice surprise..Easy to find with a private parking for 15 dollars. Nice room...we had sauna after dinner and the staff was really cordial and professional..they had an answer for every question you had. Go there if you're travelling to ottawa..everything is very near. Only thing..the third bed was a camping bed and, once opened the room became a bit... More

Nice hotel, friendly staff. Our room was clean and tidy, really recommend this hotel. The only problem was that in our room there was no wifi, which was pretty annyoing. The breakfast is not a big deal, but if you are just staying a couple of days, will be perfect.

My girlfriend and I just stayed here for 3 nights. We did not choose to stay here as we booked through Hotwire; however, we would certainly return. I emailed front desk shortly after finding out we were staying in regards to requesting a queen bed/balcony. I received a prompt reply stating they could not guarantee the request as we booked...

Easy to find and check-in, while a little slow, was informative and friendly. Great location for food and sights. Breakfast wasn't great, but it was adequate. Was there with one son, and we would stay there again.
