This hotel is a welcome break from the typical box like ones you see everywhere. The staff are really helpful and the hotel is nice and clean. A great place to base an Ottawa holiday with the main places all in an easy walk or a short bus ride from the bus stop opposite

This is a cute little gem in the heart of Ottawa. Stayed here for two nights this summer and would stay again. The rooms are a fair size and very comfortable. It is clean but no frills location. The staff where very helpful and courteous. Public transportation is nearby and 20 minute walk to the greyhound. Would definitely recommend it... More

What a wonderful change of pace from a large, sterile hotel! We stayed here for 2 nights in July and were met by the host and the young, lovely staff who helped us park and helped with our luggage. Nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed the twin room on the 3rd level - very clean and with an individual... More

The Albert House Inn is a comfy and quiet place to stay in Ottawa. The building is on the city's historic register and is attractive and well kept. It's within easy walking distance of the Rideau River path, Parliament Hill, and attractions like the Canadian War Museum. The room we had was spacious and well-appointed. Our hosts were very pleasant... More

Lee, Thank you so much for your kind comments. We are pleased that you enjoyed our Inn and breakfast choices. I am sorry that you were not happy that you were required to pay for parking, but downtown Ottawa has very limited parking and all accommodation facilities charge (even more) for parking on site. We feel that the cost of... More

Victorian building converted to b&b. Basic rooms are pretty small, shower and toilet are in separate rooms. The toilet itself basically in a closet so if you are taller than 6' or overweight it's gonna be a bit uncomfortable doing No. 2. AC unit in our room was pretty noisy but we asked for and were given ear plugs. WiFi... More

I've been staying here on and off for 29 years. Cathy & John were still renovating when I first came. Cathy still keeps a steady hand on the tiller, ensuring consistently excellent service through an ever changing cadre of young staff. This is my home for trips to Ottawa. Originally built in 1874, this old lady still has an air... More

I booked my father here (70years old) for a mini stay while we were located in Toronto (visiting from Australia) The service he received was outstanding! Having never visited Ottawa before he was given so much information on what to see and how to get there. He was also given an umbrella by the hosts due to the unpredictable weather.... More

So I stayed at the Albert House the week of May 7th. I had room 401 which is actually on the 3rd floor. I have bad knees and didn't mind the walk up, it wasn't bad at all.

The Albert House Inn is a cute Victorian B&B run by a super friendly family who are very accommodating. The fresh, cooked to order breakfast is fantastic, and those apple pancakes are a must-try!
