10/10 Exceptional

A gem in downtown Ottowa
Delightful! Lovely pension-style hotel near everything downtown and urban in Ottowa. Euro-style (efficient, aesthetic) and eco-minded property. Such a wonderful contrast from the mega-chain hotels. Engaging, friendly hosts. Property had everything you need - Wi-Fi, morning espresso, comfy dressing gowns - and was conveniently located to walk to: Shaw Centre, Rue Rideau (shopping, restaurants), Parliament Hill, UOttowa, and other attractions.

Best place and affordable!
The location was strategic and terrific. The place has a lovely and big patio which I enjoyed it. The room was clean and toiletries were eco-friendly and good quality. The people in the reception and maintenance were very friendly, profesional and very helpful in giving directions and places to hang out. I’m very pleased with the hotel during my stay in Ottawa. Highly recommend!!!

Quaint, clean, great service with a European flare. They have done an amazing job with the place given the size. The room was impeccably clean and the lady at the reception was very friendly. There’s only five parking spots at the hotel but it was easy to find one overnight in the street.
