Located just a short walk to Parliament Hill and ByWard market with many restaurants. Parking across the street in a public parking garage. Staff at check in/out was very friendly and helpful. Room were modern and very clean. Bed really comfy. No refrigerator in room but you can ask in advance to get one. Minus one star because of the door of the bathroom, because a saloon door for the bathroom is not really the best choice even as a couple. All in all would come again.

Very positive stay at Alt Ottawa. Friendly staff. Central location easily walkable to Elgin Street and Byward Market area. We were able to check out late which allowed us to go for a morning hike in Gatineau Park then freshen up before the long drive home. Would definitely recommend.

Overall I would not stay here again. While the rooms are described as minimalist I would suggest they actually look run down. The restaurant area ran out of most things on the menu for 3 evenings in a row since they said they were not prepared for the amount of people who stayed, which is odd considering the hotel should know this. They also provide no service to the rooms (even when staying a week) which I understand due to Covid but still do not reflect any change in price. You would hope a mid week change out of bedding/towels would happen. The customer service in their front desk staff was minimal and very unhelpful. Overall you can definitely find better accommodations in the area for a much better price and level of service.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Alt Ottawa for a business trip. The local was perfect in terms of my work duties and after work social time. But a hotel is just a hotel without the right mix of energy and staff -- and this is where the Alt exceeds expectations. The cool vibe, the trendy cafe and bar, the duvet covered beds, the eco friendly design AND the staff. I had EXCELLENT care by MARIO and PACIFIC -- both of these team members went above and beyond to make me feel welcomed, appricated and cared for. Do not look any further -- book te Alt and don't look back -- you will not regret it!

Good choice for a quick getaway. Room was spacious and comfortable and being able to stream to the TV was great. The hotel was clean and quiet. No on-site parking but we found a lot a block away that was safe and affordable. Easy walk to Parliament Hill, ByWard Market and Somerset Street with its charming restaurants and bars. Would definitely stay here again, and a good first experience after not travelling since March 2020.
