    Quaint gem.

    Service was excellent from check-in to check-out. Room was super clean and all Covid protocols were closely followed. Breakfast was good. Only complaint was the wifi was intermittent and slow on the 6th floor.

    Great Location, Thin Walls

    I prefer supporting independent hotels, which is why I chose this location. It has a quaint atmosphere, with fun paintings decorating the halls and walls. The rooms are well kept and clean, and each come with a balcony that either overlook the street or the rooftop terrace. Our suite was described as a queen and a double, but we're pretty sure they were both doubles. However, a small inconvenience. It is less than 500m from the Byward Market, a lovely area for food and drinks during the day, and quite a lively one at night when the bars open. Was staying with friends for a music festival that was going on during the long weekend. On our first night we stayed in, and decided to listen to music while we chatted and played card games. We had thought it was an appropriate level since we were able to have conversations, but turned it down after the first warning from the front desk. The second warning we received, we turned off the music altogether since it was almost 10, and then the concierge typed up and delivered a letter informing us we would be evicted without refund if there was another complaint. I understand the need for respecting neighbours in a hotel, however, the staff treated us as though we were throwing raging party instead of talking too loudly before midnight. The threat of eviction without refund on a weekend where there were no other accommodations available was quite drastic and for that, I would not recommend a stay here, unless you go to bed at 9pm.

    Great location and balcony with a view

    Great lively location close to everything we wanted to see, beds were comfortable, liked having the kitchenette. Made good use of the balcony to eat and relax. Breakfast was pre- packed because of covid but there was still a good selection including hot bacon and egg sandwiches, and trays to take it back to your room if you wanted. Supermarket a few blocks away if you don’t want to eat out. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again
