We love staying in B&Bs but of all the others, this one did not present itself as an elegant B&B. The entrance, the front patio, living room, kitchen and dining room look cluttered. At first, it felt very uneasy seeing these but in fairness, there are only two areas that we use a lot and those are our bedroom and... More

This was my first time visiting Ottawa and the location of this B&B is absolutely ideal. The parliament is within walking distance and there is a museum right across the street. Hari and Siri were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area. They gave us coupons for an amazing burrito place too which was perfect. I would definitely stay here... More

DBB has two floors with very cozy bedrooms, I like the local decorations and the hospitality welcome from the host, this hotel has very good location, close to the nature museum which is free from 17:00pm, and the friendly family will tell you where has a secret beautiful view, where has good restraunt to eat, where there is special place...

I've heard alot of bad things about bed and breakfasts places but downtown bb managed to get my faith back up about bed and breakfasts. I enjoyed my stay, the place was well located with a museum a minute away and wonderful restaurants minutes away. I would definitely be visiting next time

We had the prettiest place to park off street and the comfiest bed of our whole trip taking in ten different hotels/b and bs. The owners are kind and take excellent care of guests and the museum is well worth a visit - Tiffany glass panels and a giant jellyfish. Good food, fab spa/massage and decent tea - a truly... More

If you're looking for a place where you can sleep in or come and go without interruption, this is not the place for you. While the proprietor was a nice person, it was impossible to leave and come back without getting sucked into a 10-minute tirade about whatever he wanted to hear himself talk about. The proprietors live on site,... More

We apologize for the misunderstanding, our bed and breakfast is our home and our business. As with any hotelier, daily attention is paid to rooms and restrooms which require moving up and down stairs as there is no elevator. Our pets are taken seriously as well, they abide by a daily routine and we wish to be responsible pet owners.... More

Very modest place. Old house with hardwood floors. Very hard to sleep at night. Could hear people coming and going when they walked on the floor and closed their doors. They used instant coffee for breakfast. No A/C. Must sleep with windows open and hear the traffic all night. Very cluttered everywhere with dust on all the furniture. Host is... More

A very reasonably-priced hotel on the outskirts of Downtown, run by friendly hosts who love to make conversation over breakfast. Room simply furnished but clean, with access to a nice bathroom. 20 mins walk to Wellington Street and central Ottawa. Decent restaurants and nightlife/bars on Elgin St are just round the corner. Would recommend for those conducting archival research at... More

Whenever I visit Ottawa, I make a point of staying at the Downtown Bed and Breakfast. I usually stay for a couple of nights. I enjoy staying there. I've found the rooms are clean and comfortable. Hari and Siri are excellent hosts. I've found them to be friendly and helpful, while at the same time being respectful of the guests'... More

I found this B and B by chance on the internet and I made an instant call and was captivated by the response from the other line. I have never been to Ottawa but needed to be there for business visit. It was 3 day long but I felt comfortable enough to write this review. One major advantage is its... More
