Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
When you arrive at the property it's very sketchy looking run down even, however as soon as you enter your room well at least the one we got was great very spacious if your going request room 265 it looks towards the front of the hotel but even with cars passing by at night you cannot hear anything. Breakfast is a joke with the whole because of Covid situation which has nothing to do with why hotels can't provide a better breakfast. The location is about a 15min walk to Byward Market and Parliament Hill depending on how you walk and plenty of places to eat and have a drink.

So called "continental break" is just 1 tiny muffin, 1 fruit drink, and 1 small yogurt. Not enough even for kids.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Older building so perhaps that was the cause of some cleanliness issues around the edges of the bathroom. Bed wonderfully comfortable and the room was very quiet
