Wonderful European charm and the most friendly welcome, made us feel at home during our stay. Management (owners) have taken every precaution to meet the demands of this pandemic reality. We loved our stay and will definitely be back!

What a lovely little spot this is!! Very cute, quaint and clean! It's in a great downtown neighbourhood close to Ottawa U, the Rideau Centre and the Byward Market. A real bonus for me was that there was ample street parking right by the hotel at a very reasonable price. Even the hotel parking is only $12/day. The owner, Sabina, is lovely and very welcoming. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating was that there was no hot water in the sink in the bathroom. The shower had hot water, though it did take a couple minutes to go from cold to hot, but once it did, no problem! Would definitely recommend this sweet little hotel for your Ottawa stay!!
