        Individual guest reviews

        • Family with children
          9.2

          Well located for central Ottawa. Receptionists very helpful

        • Single
          9.6

          THe location was excellent and the hotel was very good all round

        • Single
          8.8

          It was very comfortable and clean, with very efficient and friendly staff. It was also conveniently located for me in market.

          There was some confusion with my booking through Booked.net. I did not request an extra bed in my room - why would I when it was only me staying there. The hotel could not waive the extra fee for the camp bed that was brought into my room.Yet it was part of my reservation, which I could not change when I realized the problem.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Location location location fairly quite balcony

          No refund on our parking when we did not get a rental car

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Good value for the money spent, great location, nice and large room.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Location, staff, the balcony of the room

          Noise from the lift and the corridor (we could hear everything)

        • Older travelers
          8.4

          Mainly Location in Downtown Ottawa. Beds comfortable. Breakfast Good.

          Rooms are plain. Nothing outstanding. But clean. Parking is tight!

        • Single
          7.8

          Very nice location to discover Ottawa and especially beautiful ByWard. Very nice and accomodating Staff. Continental Breakfast was very good.

          Parking Garage was very smal and tight. Only experiecend drives should go in there.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          Good location minutes from the restaurants and stalls of the Byward Market area. View over the area from balcony. 10 - 15 mins. From Parliament Hill. After hours security system for access to the Inn. Pleasant reception staff.

          Older building, very hot room, old air conditioning system (barely effective in window unit). Pretty breakfast room however staff were overwhlemed by the number of guests; limited availability of tables, coffee cups with no handles-needed to wrap a napkin around to hold them, ran out of hot items-people wating for food to arrive, ran out of utensils, ran out of coffee, coffee cream was sour. It was a nice try but fell well short of the mark. Needs room upgrades and a service review.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Almost everything. The Inn was unique, hardwood floors, comfortable, centrally located and quiet. The hot breakfast was a real bonus. The staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us suggestions of places nearby where we could get a good meal and whic places were best to visit, whild in Ottawa. We really enjoyed our stay at the ByWard Blue Inn.

          The parking was limited, but given the downtown location of the Inn, it was adequate.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          We liked the location in the Byward Market and the ease of getting to restaurants, downtown sites etc. We especially liked being able to get out on the balcony for some fresh air. The breakfast (and snacks!!) provided were excellent. We loved the artwork decorating the corridors and the rooms.

          The room was quite small and the downstairs parking a bit of a challenge.

        • Couple
          10.0

          It's location to the By Water market area, it's a great place to eat and drink. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the rooms are very clean and extremely practical even having a kitchen area and a balcony.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Excellent location in Ottawa : most important and worth seeing locations within walking distance. Even then, well connected to public transport. Thanks to the location in the city, great choice of restaurants nearby.

        • Couple
          9.2

          Perfect location within walking distance of sights and restaurants. Undercover parking was useful. Room was clean and comfortable.

          Wi-fi connection was poor.
