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...

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...

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...

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...

“We had the room on the 3rd floor, the stairs are narrow and steep and the carpet is dated, and that is why we down-rated the room to average. The air conditioning worked fine.Although we didnt see them, we believe the rooms on the second floor have wood floors and would probly be nicer.”
