This stay was a wonderful stay in Ottawa, I arrived early and was able to leave my bag while I explored a bit of Ottawa before checking in. Sabina was amazing, she really went above and beyond! She provided me with the best things to do and eat in Ottawa and her recommendations did not disappoint!!!

Great hotel, very clean and comfortable. Room was small but very nice. Also quiet which I appreciate. Downtown location, walking distance to the metro, Byward Market district, shopping, parliament hill and museums. Yes there are homeless people in the area, but I can say as a solo traveller I never felt unsafe walking anywhere alone, or was bothered by anyone. Sabina was lovely, and they offer free coffee beverages in the morning. Highly recommended.

The property is walking distance to downtown Ottawa and the Parliament. The owner is very nice and the facility is safe and clean. I would definitely recommend. Note that there is no elevator, so be mindful of what your capabilities are.

Good place to stay but the neighborhood has a homeless population issue. A mission and Salvation Army close by make it seem a little sketchy.

We travel extensively and have had the privilege of staying at some great properties. Swissotel Hotel may be rated a 3-star but the the warmth and personal service is a 5-star! Owned and operated by Swiss-born hotelier and eco-conscious Sabina and her small team, the hotel offers a true home away from home experience in the the lush oasis of tree canopies in the heart of the nation’s capital within walking distance to the lively Byward Market, Parliament Hill. We loved the enclosed outdoor courtyard garden to enjoy speciality coffees, courtesy of the hotel or chat with other guests. If you need your Tim Coffee in the morning, it’s a 2 min walk. I visit Ottawa often for work and I plan to stay here just because no other hotel staff will make you feel like a guest in their house than the great energy we felt from Sabina. I know that we will have a friendly face when we visit again!
