We made an impromptu trip to Ottawa on the weekend of 20July and booked at this hotel last minute. One room left, so we were taking a bit of a risk. But the price was the lowest, yet it was close to the ByWay Market. If you can't see on the map, the hotel is only two blocks away from... More

We really enjoyed this we'll run bed and breakfast. Most sights in downtown Ottawa and parliament hill are within walking distance. The lively market area makes for interesting browsing with many options for meals. The rooms are clean and spacious and ours included a small fridge, coffee maker, microwave and basic dishes and utensils. We enjoyed the small balcony table... More

Always clean and welcoming, this is our go to spot in Ottawa. On the west edge of the Byward market, this hostel style hotel is near everything downtown. The breakfast here is top notch and included in your stay, but each room has basic kitchen facilities that allow food preparation as well. The "hostel" part is a loose comparison only... More

My wife and I spent two nights here last week, Sunday and Monday. We had a room on the 4th floor with one of the large balconies, from which you could enjoy a view up Clarence Street. On weekends, the street was blocked off a block up, and we could sit on our balcony and enjoy the view of the... More

A very convenient location and this small inn had all the amenities you need for a good city stay. We stayed two nights and room was compact but very well equipped and had a lovely balcony overlooking a rear courtyard. Bed was small but comfortable and room was clean. Breakfast was basic but did the job.....but staff could have been... More

Very conveniently located near the Byward market. While some of the furnishings and bathroom fixtures are dated the overall experience was very good. The staff was very professional and the room was clean and quiet. Having a balcony was an added bonus. The free breakfast was good. I also liked coming back in the afternoon and finding they served a... More

Impeccable. A nice small inn in an amazing location to downtown Ottawa. Limited parking but there is a public parking nearby. Good breakfast included in the rate. I would stay there again. The front desk staff was helpful and helped resolve quickly some issue I had with their parking.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's a really cute place with a good location and a bus stop nearby. Try getting a room with a balcony. The view isn't all that, but it's nice to chill on the balcony during the breezy summer days. Rooms are also clean and all.
