Met family for a weekend getaway and were rewarded with this great hotel! Super clean, super friendly, and breakfast was just perfect. The hotel was in an amazing location-walkable to everything. The hostess is truly fantastic. Thanks for the experience!

This hotel is small and cozy. The room was immaculate, the service was super friendly. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a European style experience in Ottawa. Minutes from the market, the canal, and shopping, it is enough 'out of the way' to miss the noise around other

This is a wonderful little hotel. Cozy and quiet, right in the heart of the city but you feel as if you've been transported to Europe. We booked two nights during Winterlude for a staycation in our very own city and loved it! We felt very welcome and breakfast was delicious!

I was pleasantly surprised to find this nice hotel in Ottawa. It was my first time to travel to Ottawa (and Canada) and I was looking for a reasonable place to stay close to the city center. I chose this hotel over a B&B and was aware of the bad reviews. But I found that the bad

Limited parking, you can park on the street. A large shopping mall garage is about a three minute walk away as another option

Is there an elevator?
There are mainfloor rooms, that have only 1 step up at the entrance. If you can't manage stairs, I would recommend letting the staff know when you reserve. Check in/out and breakfast are located on a lovely lower level, but the staff are so wonderful they may be able to provide alternatives.
