We stayed at the Downtown Bed & Breakfast for 4 nights and it was an absolute delight! The hosts are very welcoming and wonderful folks- and they have a cute dog, Disney :) The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. Most of the main attractions of the city are a maximum of 30 minutes away (by foot), so... More

This is the only place I stay in Ottawa. The house is a lovely old home full of character and centrally located. The hosts are welcoming and made me feel right at home. I even got a massage from Siri the owner. Good Value. I highly recommend it and I will definitely come back.

This was a comfortable and friendly experience. Hari & Siri were lovely hosts. Free water, coffee and tea all day. Very economical. Serene vibe. Great nights sleep as the neighborhood is quite. About a 20 min walk to Parliament, Little Italy & Chinatown.

Downtown B&B offered a peaceful place to stay in Ottawa. It is located directly across from the Museum of Nature, with many cafes and shops within walking distance. Benefits include parking, wifi, and hot meal each morning. You will love talking with other guests and the hosts over the breakfast table.

Very interesting owners with knowledge jof the area. Continental breakfast with large assortment of teas but needs work with the coffee. Clean room and handy to downtown attractions. Parking worked out but could be a problem with a full house.

Downtown Bed and Breakfast was a delightful experience when I stayed there recently. It is located in downtown Ottawa, across the street from the Nature Museum. My room was large and well appointed with some antique furniture and a really comfortable bed. Siri and Harimandir are charming and friendly. Siri has an incredible sense of humor and had me laughing... More

Hi this is AMY!! Hope you guys remembered me. I visited Ottawa for visa stamp last December and stayed at their home for 3 nights! They are the best host ever!!

I am impressed with the beauty of their building, its location and by the owners' kind friendly presence in the neighbourhood, helping neighbours and supporting community. The healthy vegetarian breakfast was a nice break from the norm.
