This was a wonderful place to stay when we were in Ottawa. It is within walking distance to all the attractions of parliament hill. Maria is a wonderful hostess and was very helpful and informative about all of Ottawa's attractions. The breakfasts were outstanding and the refreshments provided in the evening were a welcome treat after a day of touring.,... More

We stayed in the third floor loft, and it was a fun and exciting experience. We really enjoyed the view, as well as the en-suite bathroom and the interesting character of the room. The room contained a binder with all sorts of information that made choosing a restaurant and seeing the sights quite east. Maria herself made the check-in process... More

The house has a great location, pretty close to the city center. Maria (the host) is a great guide, she always has some great suggestions for you what to visit in Ottawa. The room was neat, and the breakfast was simply excellent. I would recommend it for everybody. Thanks Maria (Norbi & Dalma)

The best comment I have about this B & B is the location, it is walking distance to all the highlights downtown, a map was provided on check in along with helpful local information. A nice touch is that there is a shared fridge that is good to have access to , along with free tea, coffee and pop. I... More

This was a great place to stay. It was close to the downtown and the Parliament Buildings. The owner is very nice and helpful. She has added a lot of extras to make this place comfortable. We used the shared washroom which had plenty of room and no waiting, maybe we were lucky. The breakfasts were very tasty and well... More

Maria catered to our dietary requests without hesitation and served a lovely breakfast. She was also very helpful with her suggestions. We could walk to Byward Market and Parliament buildings and enjoyed our stay. We would go back, for sure!!

Maria was very helpful and knowledgeable about where to eat and what to do in her town. The Breakfeast's were filling and good as well as... More

This little B&B was a joy to stay at. Maria is a lovely lady who enjoys what she does and has plenty of stories and information to share. She knows her city. Lovely breakfasts included stuffed french toast, egg frittata, toast, etc. We stayed in the loft room which was quaint and clean. On-site parking is wonderful to have in... More

We were 2 couples staying the weekend in Ottawa and found the Ambiance to be a very quiet and clean B&B. It is in a perfect location within walking distance of Parliament Hill and Byward market. Parking is free. We rented the suite (2 rooms with a shared bath), which was quite economical. The kitchenette right outside our rooms allowed... More
