We stayed here for 6 nights. This place is clean, staff is super, super friendly and helpful!!!!!! The Inn is also strategically situated therefore we could walk everywhere easily. That is a real bonus. We even would come back to our room. have a rest and go back out to enjoy more sites. The balcony was awesome and we would bring our coffee and breakfast out there every morning. A real gem of a place where we will most certainly go back again and suggest to others.
Excellent location in the Byward Market very close to all attractions and restaurants. Very good service and value at this hotel. The rooms were well equipped with everything you would need to enjoy your stay. Balcony, Cable TV, microwave, mini fridge, sink, dishes and cutlery, coffee machine, kettle, hair dryer, iron, house coats, slippers. Amazing hot continental breakfast. We will definitely come back to this hotel and would highly recommend to others for this hotel. Thank You for the stay !
Charming home away from home. Balconies on each room and open dining room with lots of light made this hotel really user friendly. Compact but not claustrophobic and chock full of little extras like microwave, fridge plates and cutlery in the kitchenette.
I discovered this gem a couple of years ago while visiting Ottawa for a family vacation. We have returned multiple times since because the hotel is clean and the staff are fabulous. Even when covid protocols limited eating breakfast in their cafe, they did a great job of providing a takeaway option. Great location - walking to Byward market, Rideau Shopping Mall, Museums etc. Recently, I had an issue with my booking (my error-not hotel) and Angelo was extremely helpful in assisting me. Strongly recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay in Ottawa.
Fabulous room included kitchenette (microwave, sink, fridge, coffee maker, dishes), table, chairs, desk, large comfortable bed and seating area on balcony. Bathroom was clean and spacious. Nice touch to have robes and slippers provided. Included breakfast was plentiful and included cereal, pastries, breakfast sandwiches, juice, coffee/tea, fruit (currently everything is separately packaged for Covid protocols). Underground secure parking was nice. Umbrellas provided in the lobby for rainy days. Homey atmosphere. Lots of restaurants and shops in the immediate area. Located within few minutes walk of Byward Market, parliament buildings, Rideau Canal and museums.
ByWard Blue reminded us of several independent hotels we have stayed at in Europe. The rooms are on the small side, utilitarian, but the bed is comfortable and the bathroom well stocked with toiletries (hairdryer included). There is a small kitchen counter with sink, microwave, small fridge (with a separate freezer), coffee maker and kettle. Ground coffee packets, teabags and bottled water provided. With the current food service restrictions in place due to COVID the breakfast items were all pre-packaged but there was still a variety of hot and cold choices. As the title suggests, the best reason to book ByWard Blue is the location. While there are other hotels closer to the ByWard Market, the 2 block distance puts Blue Inn nicely in a quieter residential area while still within walking distance to everything.…
We had an excellent experience here. The rooms are clean and comfortable with many extras eg. Robe, slippers, real cream for the coffee maker, kettle etc. Breakfast was well above your typical continental.. It was walking distance to everything. Will definitely stay there again
The best part is the location, literally right behind Byward market and within an easy walking distance to most of Ottawa’s major attractions and restaurants. They also offer a small but free underground parking garage as well. So if you are lucky enough to get a spot and are an expert in squeezing into tight parking spaces, you can get free parking right in downtown Ottawa! I also liked the continental breakfast which comes complimentary with the room. And the breakfast have a variety including breakfast egg and sausage sandwiches! The rooms were old but clean. Room service to clean the room and put in supplies was prompt. While all the supplies needed are there, it was all stuffed in and squeezed into the room. The main reason I didn’t give a higher rating was because the room was very very small for our family. And noise travels in from other rooms. The family suite room that we were in would fit 2 people comfortably, maybe 3, but that it’s. There is a kitchenette but it’s extremely tiny with a tiny fridge that doesn’t allow for much storage of food and there’s no oven, FYI. …
We stayed in a very nice room for 6 nights with kitchenette with frig, microwave and a sink. Plates, glasses, cutlery and coffee were provided. We had robes and slippers provided and a patio with table and chairs and perfect for a meal of happy hour. Delicious water was provided. The bed and bathroom were spotless. For us, the room was dark and could have used a desk lamp in order to use the desk in the evening.
There was nothing we didn't like about the Byward Blue. Fantastic location, extremely clean, pleasant staff, and a lovely self serve selection for breakfast. The room had everything we needed including a small veranda with table/chairs which would have been nice if the weather was nicer. We would definitely stay there again!
