Have stayed here as part of a group booking about five times. It was clean and cool ( very important if your visiting in July / August ). The accomadation is perfect when on a budget , central location means it's awesome for exploring this wonderful city.

Stayed here over Canada day long weekend as it was by far the most cost effective option in Downtown Ottawa. Not a far walk downtown but some of the neighborhoods along the way can be a bit shifty. Hotel was clean but sparse. Our room had a kitchen along with two separate bedrooms and a bathroom. Room was fine and... More

We were on our way to Canada day on parliament hill so it was a great location, but the beds were not very comfy and we found candy from the last people by one of the desks. Overall it was clean and convenient for one night. If you are looking for a longer stay I would recommend a different hotel.

Stayed here during the Congress of the Humanities at the University of Ottawa. Unbeatable location on campus - bit of a stroll to get anywhere else, but nothing too taxing. Service was okay, if a little slow. You get what you pay for in this location - it's a university hall of residence. Would I stay here if visiting the... More

While I am normally not a snob about aged hotels, provided that they are clean, reasonably priced, and comfortable - I am definitely going to be a snob about this particular hotel. Our first sense of foreboding came when we attempted to call the reception desk to enquire about arrival time, as we were travelling a long distance and an... More

Our daughter has been attending the University of Ottawa for the past 4 years and lives on campus throughout the year as she also works for the University part-time. Every time we visit, this is our place! Why pay more? This building was a Quality Hotel and the University purchased it for additional student accommodations... It has everything you need..... More

The accommodations were larger than a standard hotel room with 2 separate bedrooms and a small kitchen area. If you are looking for a luxury hotel room this isn't the place. If you need an inexpensive, very clean, well located place to stay, this is perfect. It was a little cold in one room due to the location of the... More

The quality is definitely good according to University residence standards, and service staff is available around the clock and very helpful and friendly. Most rooms don't only have (cranky and sometimes slow) wireless network, but RJ45-Ethernet wall outlets for wired network as well, which is definitely faster and more pleasant to use, so be sure to bring your Ethernet cable....

The university rent out their student accommodation during summer vacation. The apartment won the other downtown accommodations by a few ways: the price is lower than $100 ($16 for parking); location right next to the canal and minutes walking to all the attractions and activities. The condition of the apartment is really good. It has two separate rooms, bright and... More

I stayed in Ottawa recently for 1 night, and the price for the Ottawa U residences definitely can't be beat. I stayed at the Friel residence, which was modern and fairly clean. The lobby had a/c, but the rooms were fairly warm on a hot summer day. The free wifi was unexpected but nice. The beds weren't very comfortable, though,... More
