“A previously unknown gem near to downtown Ottawa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

If a 30-minute walk, along the Rideau canal, to downtown Ottawa paints an interesting picture, then staying at the low budget Saint Paul's University Residence should be a serious consideration. Two large bedrooms, each with a double bed, and separated by a kitchenette, provided ample space for our recent 2-night stay. The young staff were helpful, and the included continental breakfast was enough to start the day. This will certainly be in our plans when we next travel to Ottawa.

If you're looking for a basic room, this place is good. Its essentially a student rez converted to hotel. The place is clean but furnishings etc are again, basic.

Complimentary breakfast buffet:
-cereal, milk, bagels, yogurt, juices, coffee/tea

Rooms are reasonably sized and decent. They have tv, fridge, micowave. No wireless, but wired internet is there. bathrooms have shampoo, soap, towels.

I'd suggest this for a single person who needs a place to stay for a night or two (ie conference, etc in Ottawa) or for a family of 3-4 who are staying longer and dont want to pay big bucks.

So, it costs little but its decent for the price.

Room Tip: theres a pizza store about 5 mins walk north on main street for a quick bite

This is not our first time staying at this hotel and we have been pleased each time. When the students are out of school they turn the residence into a hotel. Its set in a lovely area with lots of places to sit and enjoy the outdoors or go for a walk. The Rideau Canal is an easy walk. The hotel rooms consist of two double rooms with large desk, internet connections and television. There is a kitchenette with a full sized fridge and microwave. The bathroom has a stand up shower. The rooms have always been very clean. A good complimentary breakfast is served in the morning in a nice dining area looking out over the grounds. Parking is complimentary. On other visits we noticed that guests sometimes brought their dog with them. This time we brought ours and they were not only accepted but welcomed.

Room Tip: We have had rooms in different areas of the hotel. They are all nice and quiet but if you get a roo...

This "hotel" is actually a home for students. During holidays students leave this house so the rooms can be rented by tourists and business people. When we arrived some of the students were still present and that was a little noisy. One of our rooms was not very clean; it was sticky all over the place and the sheets were a bit dirty. Maybe this was an incident. If you stay for a longer period it is nice the the rooms have a little kitchen.
Location is great and so is the breakfast.

Room Tip: If you need wireless internet ask for a room on a level with an access point. On other levels the si...

Located in Main St.-walking distance to Rideau Canal and close to Parliament Hill- a good half an hour walk to see town center. What I like about this hotel is the room size, 2 separate bedrooms and a full size fridge, a kitchenette with microwave. The bathroom is spacious with a standing shower-clean! The beds may not be comfortable but it is good to find a good one in the other room. Continental breakfast is served daily. Reception quite helpful with the information to get around.
Good for families, valuable price, and free parking! Make sure you get out earlier if you have business meetings in the morning, the area is quite congested between 7:30 and 9 a.m. For food, lots of resto and bars downtown.

We were very pleasantly surprised with our suite at the residence. There was a small but comfortable kitchen/eating area, private bathroom, and two separate bedrooms, each with double bed. Quite a treat. We used this as our base for enjoying Ottawa's attractions: the Byward Market, Parliament Hill and the National Galleries.
