Awesome boutique hotel in the Byward Market. Close to wherever you want to be downtown and or just a $10 Uber taxi everywhere else! Cozy atmosphere, spacious clean rooms and an awesome breakfast thrown in.

My husband and I stayed at the Byward Inn mid week. Never stayed there before but reviews looked good. We loved it. Quaint, very clean, large rooms, afternoon tea and hot breakfast. The location was perfect. Five minute walk to the market and dozens of nice restaurants. We will definately stay there again.

This boutique hotel is in a great location and offers a pleasant alternative to the usual hotel chains. It is clean, well run and the original art is a nice touch. Rooms are large and I really liked the wood floors. My only complaints were that my bed squeaked and the curtains were a very light cotton, (with venetian blinds...

First time in Byward market area and could not recommend a better place to stay that is walking distance to attractions, restaurants,shopping and pubs. The hotel itself has complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea,plus encourage you to use the area off the lobby to host your dinner that you prepare in your room. A table was set with glasses and cutlery...

I enjoyed my stay. Room was simple, but clean, with nice extras like a robes and slippers, fridge with a nice "thank you" bottle of purified water. Little deck with view of Parliament Hill, several blocks away. Lots of construction all over Ottawa now (new projects and a light rail system coming in) so it was great to park my...

The room was ok, we had a private balcony, the breakfast included was really good, the service was always alright. The location is just perfect, you can find many activities to do nearby, the parliament, shopping centers, catedral notre dame, etc. I fully recommend it.

Super nice service. Good little private parking garage. Great location. Great view. A little pricey but I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! Also free breakfast which apparently people don't go to in their pajamas. Lesson learned!

A very small and simple place to stay. The lobby is unimpressive but the rooms were very simple and clean. Nice touches with robes, microwave, fridge, Bath and Body Works products and great water pressure in the shower. Most of the furniture was Ikea and better pillows are needed, but for the price, it was a good deal. Also offers...

Chose this hotel over larger name brands as their price was extremely reasonable and I like staying downtown. This hotel is a converted condo and is quite nice. The rooms are clean and VERY quiet. On the plus side, most rooms come with a great balcony to sit on and enjoy a meal. However the room is sparsely decorated and...
