Room was clean and bed was comfortable ( nothing fancy but just right ). Room also came with a fridge with complimentary filtered bottle water daily, coffee machine, microwave, electric hot water kettle, tea bags, and a safe to... More

I would positively stay at this hotel the next time I visit Ottawa. My room was ready on arrival ( noon) and I was greeted with care and courtesy. The room was clean and had everything I needed including thick bath towels, purified water and a mini- fridge. The location was fabulous. On a quiet street next to the bustle... More

I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to my friends. Checking in was quick and I was given 2 sheets of very useful information by the friendly member of staff. I had a large clean room and a very comfortable bed. The food at breakfast was plentiful. The Inn's location was very handy for shops,museums and restaurants.

We spent one night at this hotel and wished we had more time here. Not major fancy, but clean room, comfortable bed and linens, nice staff, decent breakfast. I loved sitting out on the balcony and seeing some of Parliament buildings at evening. Easy walk to the market, dining and to Parliament area. I would highly recommend if you want... More

Loved this place! Located 1/2 block from all the action of the Byward Market. Room was older but very clean, included breakfast which was really good. Real bacon like you buy at home not the weird stuff you usually get at buffets, premade omelettes, fruit, pastries, yougurt, fried potatoes, cereal etc.Would absolutely stay here again.

When you come to Ottawa, you come to the Byward Market so why not get a room there too? The Byward Blue Inn is steps away from the Market on a quiet street.
