This place is one block from dozens of stores, pubs and the Byward Market. It is a very basic hotel but the staff, food and little extras make it a perfect place to have a quiet stay in the heart of Ottawa. I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

We really liked staying here earlier in March. It's in a perfect location in the market plus Parliament Hill, the canal and the National Gallery are just a short walk.

I have continued to reserve at the Byward Blue Inn over the past few years when travelling to Ottawa. Friendly staff, very clean room. Quiet in the evenings. A nice continental breakfast in the a.m. Reasonable rates.

The inn is very clean, comfortable and well located. We enjoyed the room, found the staff to be very helpful and accommodating and would stay there again. The breakfast is very good and is much more than the stated continental breakfast. Thank you for a great weekend!

We stayed here in mid-march and enjoyed the time in the area. The hotel is very small, giving it a boutique-style feel. We booked through trip advisor as the price of $88/night was much better than what the hotel offered over the phone ($130). The hotel is clean, rooms are simple with 1 queen bed or 2 singles. The complimentary...
