Whenever I visit Ottawa, I make a point of staying at the Downtown Bed and Breakfast. I usually stay for a couple of nights. I enjoy staying there. I've found the rooms are clean and comfortable. Hari and Siri are excellent hosts. I've found them to be friendly and helpful, while at the same time being respectful of the guests'...

I found this B and B by chance on the internet and I made an instant call and was captivated by the response from the other line. I have never been to Ottawa but needed to be there for business visit. It was 3 day long but I felt comfortable enough to write this review. One major advantage is its...

We stayed for two nights just before Christmas and it was very enjoyable. The location is great as was the room, which was a good size and clean and tidy. The owners were both very nice and enjoyable to chat with. I would highly recommend staying here.

This is a great location for Winterlude within walking distance of the Rideau Canal and a great burger place called the Works. The rooms have little sound privacy. Overall it is a hostel-like environment, but very clean. The owners are very welcoming and friendly.

The location is great, everything is within walking distance. This was great because we stayed there in February, and it was very cold outside. The host was very nice, provided info about places to visit nearby. The price included parking and breakfast which was nice too. Good impressions overall.

We stayed B&B and Spa on Halloween day, for 2days. I think I was lucky to find this house. The room is very clean,cozy and spacious. Great location from bus terminal and downtown. And,the Canadian Natural Museum is just in front of the house. They are very friendly as well. It is relaxing mood in the house as there are...

This is a hostel. Do not expect a spa. Cluttered, dated, and feels unclean. Quite a walk downtown. Go elsewhere for breakfast. This would be a last resort option only. We were expecting two double beds and got lumpy pull out couch plus bed, with very little from to walk around either. The garden is overgrown and not conducive to...

First off, their website is honest and we didn't feel misled. We needed a bed for one night and the accommodations were adequate for our needs. The bed was a bit uncomfortable (top mattress would slide to one side off the bottom mattress) but we had a good sleep nonetheless. Our room was clean and spacious and we made use...

Upon arriving, the host was pleasant enough. But it soon became apparent that his favourite pastime is pontificating so he can listen to the sound of his own voice. If you try to have an actual conversation, forget it – he isn't interested in anything you have to say. Room was barely adequate: it was crammed with two chests of...

This is my second time staying with Siri and Hari. I came to Ottawa to renew my visa at the US embassy. The first time, I got my visa quickly and had no problems. But this time, I had problem obtaining a visa and I had to stay indefinitely. They are very accommodating, working it out so I don't have...
