We stayed at the Swiss Hotel for two nights over Canada Day and couldn't have been more pleased. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and the room was compact, but clean and had everything you would need. I think the bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in!! There is a private patio out back where you are feel to sit and enjoy a glass of wine or whatever you like, which we did. Very nice ... The building that houses the hotel is over 100 years old and is very quaint . The rooms have been recently renovated and are tastefully done. The hotel is located very near to Parliament Hill and the Byward Market as well as other tourist attractions . We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go . Overall we had a wonderful experience at the Swiss Hotel and would certainly stay here again when we return to Ottawa. One thing to be aware of is that the hotel does not have elevators, so if stairs are an issue for you request something on the ground floor .
