Very cozy, comfortable place to stay. Very well located, walking distance to a lot of places of interest. Walking distance to restaurants and pubs. Breakfast was great. Having the keypad entrance made us feel very secure. The manager was so friendly and helpful.

Non Smoking location, a small smoking area is out front. We were very late for our check in, a comedy of errors on my part. We arrived in the middle of a black out. After a momentary panic looking at the security entry key pad the lady of the house came to our rescue. She met us with flash lights...

I stayed one night in a third floor room with shared bathroom. The room are small but comfortable. Breakfast was self-serve and there was plenty of choice. The manager was most efficient and helpful. I was able to park behind the house in their parking lot which was very helpful. My room looked out over a park.

A gem in downtown Ottawa. A 20 min walk to Parliament HIll and a half block from lively Elgin St. Sweet owner Lucie goes above and beyond to be kind and helpful. Continental breakfast food is wonderful, and rooms are clean and comfortable. Computer, phone and TV available for guest use in sitting room.

Great location in the city centre, only a short (15 min) walk to byward market and slightly further to parliament hill (25 min) but still peaceful and quiet to sleep at night. Lots of bars and restaurants very close by on Elgin St and surrounding area. Hotel itself is very homely and nicely presented, breakfast included is nice and our...
