Nice balcony in our room. Spacious room and bathroom.

Very convenient to Byward Market area. Parking nearby but staff could have advised we could have had free Sunday parking had we waited a couple of hours. Comfortable and clean, staff could have been more engaged

It was a nice place with tons of restaurants and bars closeby. Place was well maintained and the staff were friendly and accommodating to any requests. Had a wonderful experience overall.

friendly staff, comfortable room, great location. There is a slight high pitched buzzing from the thermostat that might annoy some people

It is very conjugated and waste for that much money

Nice, comfortable, clean, friendly staff. Nice included breakfast and tea time in the afternoon. Will go back.

This is a charming hotel which is really convenient to Ottawa nightlife. The staff is very helpful and friendly, and there a nice, complementary breakfast and afternoon tea. Certainly, not a luxury property, but clean and comfortable, nonetheless.

Hotel looks small from outside. Inside looks nice and more like a boutique hotel.

Great location and price. Staff was great. Breakfast was great and the 3 - 5 tea was a great treat.

This is a great hotel, on a quiet residential street but within a block of the Byward Market area. The hotel itself is quiet and well-maintained, has a friendly and helpful staff, and fast Wi-Fi. A huge breakfast is included in the price. It is within walking distance of many restaurants, as well as the National Gallery of Art and Parliament Hill. It is only a bit further to take a beautiful walk across the bridge to Gatineau to see the Museum of Civilization/History. There is a pharmacy and other shops nearby, and it is within walking distance of the Rideau Center shopping mall. There is a parking garage near the hotel, for those with cars, and it is also easy to get a taxi or Uber in the area. I was very pleased with my stay.

It's a very nice place that keeps it simple. Rooms are large, clean, and had ask the features. Staff is friendly and breakfast is not bad. Location is absolutely great. Steps away from byward market and a shirt ride to almost anywhere in Ottawa. Location / room / price is excellent

I loved this hotel. Close to all the great things in Ottawa, yet quiet and personal.

Felt like home. Very friendly staff. Comfortable room. Outstanding location to see the downtown sights!

WOW! This place was excellent! Walking distance to loads of interesting places. Byward Market is super.Had burgers in a pub that has a red neon sign saying only Bar just 1 block north of Clarence (Byward Blue). Went to mass at cathedral with Bishop and a wonderful organ and organist. Highly recommend all.

The location was PERFECT! So close to so many restaurants!! I think you're definitely paying for location. The hotel itself is a little old and could use some upgrades. For example, the elevator takes FOREVER. If you can use the stairs, do. Parking is not included in the price which is a bummer if you have your car. The breakfast in the morning is delicious!

Great location. Loved the balcony and gardens! The breakfast in the morning was so amazing. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was parking close by which was great.

Stayed here 3 times in March and April 2015. Great location in Byward Market near lots of things to do - all in walking distance. Staff was very helpful and friendly, and free breakfast is reasonably good (for free).

Great location, close walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and night life. Rooms were very comfortable, nice kitchenette area, spacious.

No issues at all with this hotel, it was great! Location was excellent, near the market and close to Parliment stuff. We were going to Bluesfest, which was about a 30 minute beautiful walk away from the hotel. There are several parking options nearby, with different pricing depending on where you park. Watch out if you park in the street though, the parking people are quick to write a ticket, we didnt get one, I saw them giving tickets and the staff warned us which was nice

2day stay for two adults. Comfortable and simple. Close to all sites in down town. Parking next door reasonabe and convenient. Clean and larger than expected with balcony ( ours was in back and quiet with view of neighbors gardens. Not a chain with all bells and whistles, but a pleasant beginning and end to the day. We would stay here again.

Dear Guest, We are sorry to hear that our hotel did not met your expectations inspite of our best attempt to do so. We are not sure as to what the issue was but we work extremely hard to make every guest happy. This hotel is situated in the heart of the city and it is one of the very few in the area that does not charge for full breakfast, snack, bottled water, wireless and so forth. At any day, our room prices are below the average because we want our guests to afford staying with us. Once again, we are truly disappointed to read your comments and we would greatly appreciate more detailed feedback on what went wrong so we can respond accordingly. Thank you for staying with us. Al (Hotel Manager)
