Reviewed 26 October 2015

This is a very regular hotel, they need to renovated the beds. Two rooms good for families, only one bathroom. Normal breakfast included and normal wifi. Excellent location near to the market and the US embassy. Few minutes to the Ridue Canal and to the Parliament Hill. Is a normal option in Ottawa.

I picked this hotel by chance and it was the best place I stayed on my trip to several cities. Right next to the Byward Market and within 10 minutes of walking distance to Parliament Hill everything one needs is in close vicinity. Lots of restaurants, the starting point of the Ottowa Sightseeing, the National Gallery, Rideau Canal, Ottowa River,...

We spent three nights here in a queen room with a balcony. This is a great little inn that comes with a great price and amenities. I think the most important thing about this inn is its proximity to pretty well everything. We left our car parked for three days in the public parking garage just a few seconds from...
