This is the only place I stay in Ottawa. The house is a lovely old home full of character and centrally located. The hosts are welcoming and made me feel right at home. I even got a massage from Siri the owner. Good Value. I highly recommend it and I will definitely come back.

This was a comfortable and friendly experience. Hari & Siri were lovely hosts. Free water, coffee and tea all day. Very economical. Serene vibe. Great nights sleep as the neighborhood is quite. About a 20 min walk to Parliament, Little Italy & Chinatown.

Downtown B&B offered a peaceful place to stay in Ottawa. It is located directly across from the Museum of Nature, with many cafes and shops within walking distance. Benefits include parking, wifi, and hot meal each morning. You will love talking with other guests and the hosts over the breakfast table.

Very interesting owners with knowledge jof the area. Continental breakfast with large assortment of teas but needs work with the coffee. Clean room and handy to downtown attractions. Parking worked out but could be a problem with a full house.

Downtown Bed and Breakfast was a delightful experience when I stayed there recently. It is located in downtown Ottawa, across the street from the Nature Museum. My room was large and well appointed with some antique furniture and a really comfortable bed. Siri and Harimandir are charming and friendly. Siri has an incredible sense of humor and had me laughing... More

Hi this is AMY!! Hope you guys remembered me. I visited Ottawa for visa stamp last December and stayed at their home for 3 nights! They are the best host ever!! We walked the dog together and have a really really nice stay while I was wondering alone at Ottawa and in a bad mood. They definitely saved me !!!!!!!!

I am impressed with the beauty of their building, its location and by the owners' kind friendly presence in the neighbourhood, helping neighbours and supporting community. The healthy vegetarian breakfast was a nice break from the norm.

Though I have never stayed here, I do owe these folks a great deal of gratitude for their kindness in looking after me after a fall across the street from the B&B. They went out of their way to calm me down, look after my injuries, and called a taxi for me afterwards. I'm sure they treat their guests with... More

Although this is an affordable B&B, close to attractions, we feel there is lots of room for improvements even considering the rates. On a positive note, the owners were friendly and knowledgeable of the city. However, the mattresses and furnishings were very outdated and the bed frames and mattresses in the two rooms we stayed in were certainly due for... More

We love staying in B&Bs but of all the others, this one did not present itself as an elegant B&B. The entrance, the front patio, living room, kitchen and dining room look cluttered. At first, it felt very uneasy seeing these but in fairness, there are only two areas that we use a lot and those are our bedroom and... More
