2/10 Poor

The room was very small you can hardly move, bathroom as well. It was very hot in the room even though we put the A/C on high. It's located next to a shelter so didn't really feel safe. The worst part of it all, the owner charged my credit card additional $150 and when I called to ask about the charge she claimed I damaged the douvet cover because it had food stain on it. I tried to reason with her that it's ridiculous to charge this amount and that this is not considered "damage" it should come off when washed, she hung up the phone on my face and would refuse to talk to me. Very unprofessional and I will raise a claim about this.

10/10 Exceptional

Our room was spotless as well as the entire hotel. Bed was one od the most comfortable hotel beds ever and the pillows & linen were first class. The owner is a lovely and hospitable lady and we were treated like family. We will definitely stay there next time we are in Ottawa.

10/10 Exceptional

Very nifty conversion of a 19th century building that keeps the architectural integrity of the original structure. Very friendly proprietress who was always happy to make me a coffee and chat. Lots of good restaurants in Byward Market nearby. On the down-side, five homeless shelters within 1km and what looks like a methadone clinic at the end of the block.

10/10 Exceptional

My stay at the Swiss Hotel was an extremely pleasant surprise! I was treated to one of this boutique hotel’s mini-suite - apparently only one of about 6 in the hotel. It was comfortable, clean, quiet & spacious. This is a wonderful property with excellent proximity to UOttawa (where I was visiting my son). It’s close to Byward market & any necessary amenities. While it’s not a big fancy name-brand hotel, it was exactly what I needed - and more. The reception staff was friendly, courteous and upbeat. There is no elevator, but there are only 3 floors. During my stay, I didn’t see or hear any other guests. I could control my own temperature nicely and the blinds kept the room dark for sleeping. The surrounding area has a number of socially disadvantaged folks, but this seems to be the case for much of Downtown Ottawa. All in all, it was a great experience and will likely be back!
