Fabulous 8.8 From 243 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
amazing hospitality and service
Amazing hospitality and service! The owner operator had 40+ years running that hotel so very personalized service! The rooms were smaller than I had expected but realized it was more of a boutique hotel. Clean and comfortable! Too bad we didn’t get to try out their breakfast service because of the pandemic and restrictions

You should stay here.
This is a terrific, economy-minded place to stay in downtown Ottawa. The rooms are thoughtfully equipped with anything you'd want (from bathrobes to the Nespresso machine), they're really comfortable, the breakfast is superb, and Sabine is a caring hostess.

Sabina is a fantastic, wonderful host!

Good choice!
This is my go-to spot for a lower-cost, great value hotel in the Ottawa core. The cheaper rooms are small but have everything at hand (Nespresso machine, bathrobes, easily accessed plug-ins for electronics, chocolate) and the beds are comfortable and internet is quick. Also: the breakfast buffet is great.
KATHERINE, ca1 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
We loved the personal touch that is often missing in big chain hotels. Breakfast was hearty and of a high Swiss quality, the decor and style was modern Euro and our hostess/owner was a sunny dynamo. We’ll definitely stay there again.

Romantic room
We had the room with the king-sized bed and the jacuzzi tub and it was fabulous! Bed was very comfy, tub was lovely to relax in and everything was extremely clean. I’d go back in a heartbeat, we had a great stay!
Kerry, ca1 night trip
Good 6.0
Could not change channels from bed, TV was too small, early check in was denied, internet was too slow
Egidio, ca1 night business trip
Good 6.0
Nice historic hotel / bad area
Hotel itself was clean - staff was nice and helpful. Unfortunately the review lacks a good rating due to the location - which we only found out afterwards, that it's next to some kind of drug rehab shelter for addicts and generally low-lifes. Didn't sleep the entire night, listened to non stop "F YOU" through the window, people fighting, screaming things in a slurry drunken mess - and in the morning thought what was construction, turned out to be someone hitting himself against the bus stop sign. Getting a good nights rest is part of a hotel review and that's too bad. Walking distance is 5-10 mins to mall/parliament hill area.
