Tks Maria....we had a very enjoyable time. We like B & B's because you usually get to meet interesting people as we did here and the hosts have very good knowledge of the local points of interest.

We decided at a last minutes to go to Ottawa for 3 days ( end of July 2010) and had decided to try a Bed & Breakfast. It seems that we were lucky to find the B&B Ambiance. Maria is the owner of the B&B, very discrete but a great host. My spouse had told her that I was lactose...

Ambiance B & B is centrally located in downtown Ottawa. Two friends and I stayed at this facility for three nights at the end of July. We booked two rooms (1 twin, 1 single) with a shared bathroom. Because of its location we parked our car and walked everywhere. The owner was very welcoming and incredibly organized regarding operating details...

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Ambiance B & B. The house was lovely and made a great base for our visit to Ottawa as it was near most of the tourist attractions and we could walk everywhere.

“We had the room on the 3rd floor, the stairs are narrow and steep and the carpet is dated, and that is why we down-rated the room to average. The air conditioning worked fine.Although we didnt see them, we believe the rooms on the second floor have wood floors and would probly be nicer.”
