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...

We were here for two nights. The room was very clean with views of Byward Market from the small balcony. It was a short walk to the canal, art museum and Parliament building. The hotel has very thoughtful amenities- buffet breakfast, afternoon tea, in room microwave and fridge, umbrellas (in case of rain), etc., etc. The gentleman at the front... More

We had a three night stay in Ottawa and couldn't have been happier with our accommodation. The bed was really comfortable and the room nice and clean. It was good to have the fridge and microwave. It was lovely sitting out on the balcony either early in the morning watching the world go by or in the evening when the... More

Hotel is just off the Market area. Nice room with fridge sink and microwave. Had a little balcony off room. Good breakfast in the morning. Staff was good. Parking right next door at a great rate for downtown. Would recommend.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Byward Blue Inn. Our room was perfect and we loved the balcony and the view of the parliament. The location allowed us to enjoy the area on foot. Parking was tight, but doable. Breakfast was awesome. Beds were comfortable. House coats were a nice touch. Loved the little fridge and microwave. A comfortable... More

Nice room with fridge and microwave. Nice balcony. A minute from byward market and its great restaurants. Eight minute walk to parliament buildings and Supreme Court of canada. It's not really fancy but it is nice. Given the price, free breakfast and afternoon snacks, I would absolutely stay again.

Didn't think these places still existed, a quality hotel with excellent service. Checked in and was warmly greeted and offered afternoon tea in the lounge whilst the room was prepared. Staff were all friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was good with both hot and cold options. Definitely go for a room with a balcony, as it just adds to... More
