Reviewed December 21, 2007

The rooms are cosy as well as the house, but not spectacular in any way. On the other hand, what's spectacular is the service. Pierre is probably the best host we've ever experienced. He has such a keen ear and is wonderfully service minded. Probably the best breakfast we've had so far during our trip. Our friend who popped in in the mornings (didn't sleep there) was given a free breakfast.

He also gave us really good maps and pointed out sights with tips on special occasions.

WLAN was indirectly available from a samaritan neighbor. Furthermore, it was really close to the city. It was completely quiet and the beds were nice.

If you're looking for a special and personal living experience, this is it!

This B&B's location is absolutely fantastic. Two blocks from the Byward Market and the National Arts Museum. You must visit the Notre Dame Basillica, again, two blocks away, just before the Art Museum. Incredibly close to the canal and Parliment (take the tour, it is really cool and much easier to enter than the Capital Building in D.C.) The host makes a great breakfast and any question we asked, he had an answer. Especially directions. Well worth the money.

We have stayed at the Auberge des Arts twice (February 2006 for Winterlude and July 2006 for Canada Day) and we think it's fantastic.

Both times it has been $75 per night, tax and breakfast included. The location is brilliant - within walking distance of Parliament Hill, Byward Market, the Art Gallery and the Museum of Civilisation to name just a few. The owners love the area, are well informed and very accommodating and cook great breakfasts (we highly recommend the omelettes). And a huge plus - there's free parking in the driveway!

If I was pushed to find a negative it would be that the bathrooms are shared and I guess the building and decor is older. But really the decorating is just eclectic and in keeping with the age of the house and the whole place has a very comfortable feel.

For the price it is UNBEATABLE and we have recommended it to friends who have really enjoyed it too. If you're looking for a good value, welcoming base for exploring Ottawa you can't go wrong with this one.
