Very Good 8.0
good for business trip
The design was eye catching, the cleanness was perfect. It seems like it is a good choice for business travels, but not for family trip. They do not have parking and the parking they suggested was very expensive. There is no refrigerator inside room; Even no bottle of water. The bed size was small, even for couple; we have a 3 year old son and I had to sleep on floor. Staff were professional and friendly and help me with some belongings which I thought I left there.

Great hotel: location, room and service was #1
We stayed at the Alt Hotel for our one year anniversary during the August long weekend. The hotel staff (especially Veronique) did everything they could to accommodate us and made this weekend special, I really appreciated that. The hotel was very clean and had a perfect location, 2 minutes from the parlement. Modern and has all the basics you need. I highly recommend!

Clean modern hotel
Very clean and modern European style hotel. No view but we were only there to sleep. Friendly staff short walk to everything but away from the weekend crowds. Just what we were looking for. Would return.

Modern, and welcoming hotel in a great location
High satisfied with our stay recently for 2 nights! Beautiful, modern, and clean hotel. The staff are extremely friendly! Very good Covid-19 precautions and not once did we feel unsafe during our stay. Great location - we walked everywhere; and lots of good foods around (we especially loved Sconewitch, went there multiple times!). Public parking lot (Indigo) across the hotel is free on weekends. Cannot recommend this hotel enough, will definitely be back when we visit Ottawa again!

A favorite small hotel
Every effort at the Alt -- where we have stayed several times - was made to ensure cleanliness and safety for guests. Naturally some elements had to be pared back in these times but we thought the staff went out of their way, including the employee not only on the desk but putting together the "covid style breakfast" for us. Only one problem -- the showers still pour water all over the floor of the bathroom, a danger to seniors such as ourselves.

Great Hotel!
It was wonderful! Bed was comfortable and staff accommodated my request of a higher floor. They even delivered balloons to my room for my birthday from the hotel! Staff was friendly and welcoming. We will be back!
