especially for us on low budget. Very clean, simple accommodation with all basic amenities and amazing breakfast included. The TA here makes me to write more but I have nothing more to say and next time I will just hold down the space bar with an exclamation bar at the end. With a hope the TA will learn or I...

The location of this inn is really great. It is in walking distance to the Byward Market, located in a neighbourhood street. It is a simple and nothing fancy place to stay. The problem we had with this place has a lot to do with the mattress. The type of mattress pad or sheet that they had was very strange....

Dear Guest, We are sorry to hear that you had issues with the bed. Except for a few rooms, the mattresses were changed recently but we will look into the particular bed to address the issue. We are disappointed that we were not informed while you were here and we would have resolved the problem right away. Apart from this,...

We stayed here in December, a very cold and snowy couple of days in Beautiful Ottawa. This little hotel could really show some of the chains how its done! The little extras and nice touches really make your stay. Dont expect a hulking boutique hotel, its a liitle blue fronted building in the Byward Market area. The rooms are not...

Very friendly staff from reception to maintenance staff. Great atmosphere. Lots of free extras that other hotels normally charge for. Breakfast is above average quality and free. Walkout balcony from our room. Windows that open. Great budget option for Byward market. Only downsides: 1- Bed sank in the middle. Problem solved by sleeping with our heads where our feet normally...

I have stayed at the ByWard Blue Inn twice before and by far, this is the best place in Ottawa. The staff is beyond one's expectations. I was there during the snow storm and had it not been for Angjelo, I would have missed my appointment because the taxi driver never showed up. As he was starting his morning shift,...

My very expensive headphones "disappeared" from my room during my stay. The managers completely dismissed me and nothing was done to compensate me for my loss. I am completely appalled by the lack of customer service here. I would not recommend and will never stay here again. If you chose to stay here make sure you keep your valuables on...

Dear Natalie T, We are sorry that you lost your headphones but the ByWard Blue Inn should not be blamed for an item that was not left in the room.

Stayed here twice this past may, for two days each time.. the staff is always friendly and attentive, the location is right in the Byward market, and the prices are mid range for a boutique hotel, but the location is the biggest draw!!

I would have stayed another night, but they didn't have space. Booked on Hotwire, cute room, basic kitchen, wonderful balcony. I could hear through the walls, but whatever. The awesome location and everything else makes up for it. Breakfast was pretty good. Would definitely stay again for the perfect location alone!
