Ottawa GEM
This is a GEM in Ottawa. Handy to downtown and the Market. There are shared bathrooms for some rooms though have stayed here a few times and it has worked just fine.

Charming, friendly Edwardian-era B&B
Charming, friendly Edwardian-era B&B in a great area. Very clean and quiet. The only drawback is limited tight parking, so be sure to book ahead. Will stay again.

Highly recommended
We had a lovely stay at the Rideau Inn. The owner was exceptional, very accommodating and considerate. The inn is close to many restaurants and only a 15 minute walk to the Parliment Buildings. Would definitely stay there again. Thank you Lucy😀

Poor 2.0
Cheap student housing - do not stay here
I'll start by saying the staff were very nice and my room was clean...I booked this at the last minute because all other reasonably priced downtown hotels were booked. The picture of the common areas looked decent enough. Unfortunately, my room was in the basement, furnished with literally the cheapest Ikea furniture available, and a TV the size of a postage stamp. The chair at the desk tore my shirt (two large sections were splintered off and clearly glued back down. The bathroom was outside my room and I did not have a housecoat (nor did they provide one), so I had to bring a change of clothes with me when I showered. The stairway down to my room was so narrow and steep I couldn't bring my bags down without almost tripping down the stairs. The breakfast is continental, plus hard-boiled eggs. I have stayed at a number of bed and breakfasts. Never have I had an experience like this. The owners should visit some of the delightful spots in Kingston or Stratford to see how this is done. At over $200 per night, I should have received better than student housing-standard accommodations. Do not stay here.
