We stayed here for 2 nights on a little getaway to Ottawa. Chose it because of the location and that couldn't be any better. It's right in the Byward Market area with loads of restaurants and shopping. East walk up to Parliament Hill and the Art Gallery. The room itself isn't great and decorated a la Ikea but is clean...

Boutique style hotel. I stayed here while attending a meeting in Ottawa before attending more meetings in St. John's Newfoundland. A boutique style hotel set with mini kitchinette's and a balcony. Small but comfortable. Quiet and situated nicely in the Byward Market of Ottawa that's a bustling spot in the summer time full with pubs and eateries. The building is...

Whilst the location was good, the room clean, staff friendly, and breakfast tasty. My wife and I were unable to sleep during our stay here. We were located in a ground floor suite, which had an...

Dear Joelg406, Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are sorry to hear that the outside light made it difficult for you to sleep.

Stayed here for a week with a couple of girl friends. Rooms were simple but had everything required to make a very comfortable stay. We had 2 separate bedrooms within the studio unit booked, bathroom and dining/ seating area with a small balcony off. It had small kitchen area with kettle, fridge, microwave within one of the bedrooms. The hotel...

Byward Blue inn was an excellent choice to stay in Ottawa, the room was good, the staff helpful and the breakfast (and complimentary afternoon tea) were really good. The location of the hotel is the best we could ask for, we would certainly stay there again.

Great little hotel.. good value. Clean modern rooms. My room had a patio with a table and chairs. Nice touch was fresh cream and bottled water in fridge for coffee.. Close to fantastic pubs and restaurants. This place is a keeper.

We chose the ByWard for its location, parking availability, and for reputation of solid, professional service. The rooms are spotless, simple, and the beds are comfortable. The breakfast that is included is filling and tastes very good. Parking spaces are limited but there is a parking garage nearby. The staff is totally professional patient in explain directions, and really care...

Dear Wapp4, We are disappointed to read that the hotel did not meet your expectations in spite of our best effort to do so.

The location of this place is awesome. Right near great restaurants, byward market, and the Rideau centre. It's a cute little place though nothing ultra fancy. The positive: We had the two bedroom suite. The beds were comfortable and there was a tv in each room which was nice. The staff were nice and offer a lovely little afternoon snack...
