Great location. Great price.

Posted Dec 6, 2017
Pros: I enjoyed the free breakfast.
Cons: My bathroom was very small and could have been renovated.
Location: It's in the Byward market so it's close to lots of bars and restaurants.
My hotel room was amazing. I'll stay here again when on a budget trip.

The stay was good :)

Posted Dec 6, 2017
The stay was good, the location was great. My only small complaint would be that the bed and pillows weren't super comfortable. However for the price, location and cleanliness it was an awesome place to be and I'd go again.

Weekend visit

Posted Dec 5, 2017
Pros: The location which was close to all the main attractions and just far enough off the beaten path from the party areas.
Cons: Room temperature regulation which they’ve had to control with a portable air conditioner. That tends to be a bit noisy but not unbearable.
Location: Great location. Everything is within walking distance. Even the history museum is just across the bridge.
I took this trip to do one last celebration of Canada 150. I had hoped to make it to every province but I ran out of time. I chose this hotel for location and pricing. Nice added features were the breakfast and afternoon tea. Unfortunately, not too much choice for food sensitivities but at least a reasonable selection of fruit, I liked the hardwood floors in the rooms. The room was a bit too warm so I had to use the portable air conditioner at night. It’s a heritage building so they are not able to have central air,. I liked the art in the stairwells. I know that others have commented on the elevator but I only used it to bring my luggage up and then down on departure. I was only on the fourth floor so it was no hardship to take the stairs the rest of the time. Having said that , family that also came ,had to stay at a different hotel because one child was in a wheelchair so you may have to consider another hotel if you have accessibility issues. Accessibility is difficult in the byward market area in general as we had to hunt for restaurants. Some had accessibility but you had to go in via the backdoor. Close to grocery stores including and organic one.

Great little inn in a great location

Posted Dec 4, 2017
Comfortable room with a balcony in the Byward Market. Rooms are small but have everything you need. Love that there is a small kitchenette with sink, fridge and microwave, as well as dishes, cutlery and even wine glasses. The included hot breakfast was very nice.

Cheap stay in Byward Market

Posted Dec 3, 2017
Room was very clean and comfortable. A list of local restaurants were given at check in and continental breakfast in the morning was nice with a lot of variety. My stay was quite enjoyable and I would definitely suggest it to anyone looking for a nice, clean place for a good price downtown Ottawa.
