Very Good Location and very Friendly StaffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for work or play"
Excellent location, large room, and the best breakfast I've had in a hotel in a very long time. The bed pillows were a bit hard and the hotel is a bit dated (you can see it in the paint and the elevator) but the room had every amenity (hairdryer, iron, coffee maker, microwave, fridge, shampoo/conditioner/lotion) and the location could not have been […] better. I would definitely stay again. The lobby has been updated a bit - the chairs are all leather-look. There is a seating area with a fireplace and all rooms have balconies. I stayed in room 56.

"Good value hotel"
An old hotel but clean; simple decor; old bathrooms. Decent breakfast included. Good service overall; staff was accommodating. Good location very close to Byward Shopping and very close to good restaurants. A decent value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel but ask for the updated rooms."
2 single bed room above the Lobby was very dated, cheaply furnished, noisy. I could hear talking, snoring and bathroom noises on both sides. The queen bed rooms on the upper floors are fantastic, modern and quiet with newer furniture. Great hotel but must update the old single bed rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Old hotel but clean rooms. Fantastic location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent as always!"
Our favorite hotel in Ottawa!!! We love the fact we can walk to the market area and the room was the best yet!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"There's better for the money!"
Hotel is located on a quiet street, just off Byward Market. Peaceful and quiet stay. My rooms décor was stark, with cheap laminate flooring and a crappy shelving unit. Room had an overall cheap look about it. Kitchenette was tiny but adequate. I arrived late on my check in date and next morning I discovered the toilet seat was broken at the hinge. I […] reported this to desk clerk that morning and it was not replaced when I left 3 days later Air conditioner was a cheap window unit that was barely capable of cooling the room. There was some black guck growing under bathroom vanity that had not been cleaned in a while. This was not my first choice of hotel as the one I wanted was booked. I booked through Expedia using the referrals as a guide. If I was stuck for a place I would stay again, but for similar money there are much better options in Ottawa. I found it funny that 2 cab drivers didn't know where it was! You'll need to remember a 4 digit access code to get into hotel after 10PM. Bed was comfortable and it was quiet, and that's a huge plus for me. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel within walking distance to major attrac"
Did not expect hotel to be nice, considering the cheap rate. Room was clean and had a mini kitchen. Free breakfast and mid afternoon snack was real treat. Staff were nice and very down to earth. Though parking wasn't included parking garage next door was super cheap at $13.50 for 48 hours.Genuine Expedia guest review
nice cosy hotel with very polite stuff. Small garage only, should be booked in advance if neededGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Such friendly staff at such a great location. Rooms were very clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Hotel...especially the breakfasts!"
Stay at the hotel was good...rooms clean...if we needed anything the staff looked after you. Full breakfasts were a definite plus at this hotel. Even in the afternoon there was coffee, muffins, cookies. Always ask for a room at the back. Can get quite noisy at the front. Also, ask for a balcony. You are very close to Byward Market (as the name of the […] hotel states!). About a 10 minute walk to parliament buildings Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location/not comfortable accommodation"
Good location for walking everywhere and wonderful breakfasts but our room did not have a comfortable chair to sit in, our window the air conditioner was in was held together with packing tape, we could not open the window and the door to balcony had no screen so we had no fresh air. Our room smelled musty and was not very clean. The glass on the framed […] print in the bathroom was cracked in half and the box spring mattress cover had a huge red stain down one side.... Not nice Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I enjoyed my stay at Blue Inn. I loved not having to drive myself anywhere after the long drive to Ottawa. I was able to walk to wherever I wanted to go. The surrounding restaurants were excellent and the neighbourhood very pleasant. I particularly liked the paintings on all the walls. I also liked that the hotel was not too big.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Steps from everything"
Loved our stay, continental breakfast was above and beyond a typical continental. Clean wood floors, steps from Byward Market. Under 1km to parliament hill. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great little place in The Market"
I stay here often. Well managed unique hotel. Staff is professional and courteous. Great locationGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to bars"
This is a boutique hotel, it is ok but you can hear people door close and when they walk down the hall. I would go back because of the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
For the price the hotel is good. Parking is a concern. I had to park in the public lot due to being an early evening arrival. Others were able to secure parking before me. Public parking was close and reasonable but no in/out privileges plus the loss of security feeling. Location is excellent for restaurants and museums. Breakfast was good. The room […] was smallish.

Wonderful little hotel in the Byward Market area, easy walking to everything in downtown Ottawa. Hot breakfast included and having our own little balcony was wonderful for relaxing. Perfect for our stay. The room included a cute kitchenette with wonderful supplies.Genuine Expedia guest review
"By Ward blue inn"
Like most places in Ottawa it was overpriced and in need of some renovations, or at least a touch of paint. The bathroom looked like it was last done in 1990. Good location, but lacking overall. I would say it was a 2.5 star hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean, basic, no-frills."
The location is perfect! If you're interested in a reasonably-priced, centrally-located, clean hotel with excellent service, this will fit the bill. The staff were incredibly helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay"
Great place to stay in Ottawa. Close to all the sites and restaurants. Walking distance to the parliament hillGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Welcoming and Convenient Place to Stay!"
We were impressed with the sincere desire of the staff, to make our 2-night stay as comfortable as possible... complimentary umbrellas for an unexpected shower...the convenience of a microwave & frig...fresh flowers on the table...a generous, satisfying breakfast different each morning...delightful afternoon tea & cookies from 3-5 p.m....Our room looked […] and smelled CLEAN. Inn is tastefully decorated with colourful works of art. Perfect location...right downtown, one block from Byway Market. We walked to many of the tourist sites. Easy access by public transit.

It was right downtown and within walking distance of many sights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A hidden gem!"
Not our first stay. So close to so many highlights of a visit to Ottawa and within walking distance of many good restaurants. Ample breakfast to start the day and pleasant helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice and clean"
Very Good! Quiet and comfort. The room is small, but the facility is enough.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Sunny Byward Blue."
I spent four days at the Byward Blue with my 13 year old son. The hotel is friendly, clean, accommodating and brilliantly well located.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cute hotel in great location"
The hotel was lovely. Great location and clean comfortable room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"I wouldn't stay anyplace else downtown Ottawa!"
I've been to the Byward Blue Inn many times and will always return. The best place on the market and downtown Ottawa for the money spent. Love it here.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a perfect little hotel with an excellent location. Everything about it is perfect.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location. Good value."
Very pleasant experience. It was in a central location next to the byward market, bars, clubs, restaurants etc. as well as popular sites like The Parliament and Rideau Centre. All in waking distance. Price was a bit higher than others, but was made up for in location and service. The hotel staff behind the desk were always helpful and friendly. Mid-day […] snack was good. Can't speak to the breakfast since we couldn't wake up in time to try it. The place is a bit dated in some areas but the concept is kind of cool. Think of it as a little boutique bachelor condo in the city. Place was clean.Parking was a bit of a hassle since it sits on a one-way street.....and if you miss the entrance....well...you're going around.....not that bad however. Overall good experience. Would stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Exceptional Staff and Great Location"
The Byward Blue Inn was just a stopover of 2 nights before we started our trip to Montreal and Quebec City, but it turned out to be a great mini vacation. The Staff member upon check-in was super helpful, gave us an upgrade to a nicely renovated room with a view of parliament hill, and was very friendly in providing us with any information we needed. […] He greeted us at the door as we walked in and held the door open for us, and helped us with our bags on the way out... only little things, but left a outstanding impression.. We would definitely stay there again, great location and made us feel warmly welcomed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The inn was great but the heat was not working in my room, resulting in a move to the adjacent room at 1 a.m. Lobby was clean and service and breakfast was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a 3 Star Hotel."
This was a 'closed booking' choice for a 3 Star Hotel, as I've done many times in North America, other countries or Downtown Ottawa. But, this was not 3 Star Hotel, as advertised on Expedia! All the same, it was clean and comfortable, but 2 star is 2 star. Since then I have done 3 more 'closed booking' with Expedia, In Ottawa, with strong hesitation. […] So much so, that I have not made a booking for Downtown Ottawa Hotels, lest I get trapped at Byward Blue Inn. Be careful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"hotel and close to what we wanted to do"
hotel was nice with a few exceptions,parking was disappointing not big enough for a large vehicle and cost was substancial considering,and vending machines were located in garage also elevators were out of serviceGenuine Expedia guest review
Extrememly pleasant and accomodating staff. Extras that we were not previously aware of (complementary sauna, afternoon tea, full hot breakfast all included in the room price).Genuine Expedia guest review
Decent place for the price and the location - B/C it is booked through third party they take a $150 deposit payment at the beginning of your stay, would have been nice to have a heads up on that one. Clean place but a tad antiquated - still works off keys instead of keycards.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very close to the By Ward market"
This was our second stay at ByWard Blue and it was just a pleasure again. To be welcomed by the friendly staff and a loan of two umbrellas was an added treat. We will be back again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had stayed at the Byward Blue Inn on two previous occasions, and very much enjoyed my stay. This time however was very disappointing. I booked a two night stay, and upon arrival, I learned that they did not have enough parking on sight, and I had to park my car at an unsecured green P lot down the road. I arrived at 2:30pm to be told my room would […] not be ready until 4. I left, and when I came back, and checked in, I was given a key to an already occupied room. It made me wonder why they had made me wait until 4pm to check in when they didn't even know which rooms were still occupied. Upon getting to my room, I found all the furniture covered in a light coating of dust, which again made me question their housekeeping routine. I left the hotel by 9am the next morning for a day of meetings, I arrived back at 4pm to find my room had not been attended to by house keeping. I was surprised as I thought surely by then the room would have been made up as they had me wait until 4 to check in the previous day. For the cost, there are many other hotels in Ottawa in the same area that offer better service, with more ammenities Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and amenities"
The Byward Blue Inn is a great place to stay. It's very convenient to the ByWard Market, National Gallery, Parliament Buildings, etc. The room included a fridge and microwave and dishes, so I was able to make meals there. There's a table and chairs to sit at, and a big balcony with another table and chairs, from which I had a view of the parliament […] buildings as night fell. The bed was decent, and the shower was fine, with good water pressure. The staff were pleasant and informative, and the inn offers an afternoon tea (where I had coffee, fruit and cheese) which was great to come back to after walking around for a long time on a rainy day. I enjoyed my stay and have already recommended the place to other people. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Excellent little hotel right on the market. Simple and clean. Rooms small and furnished with Ikea but location and service was top notch. My new favourite spot for trips to Ottawa.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just the smell"
OH man, this would have been a great place AAA++ had it not been for the terrible smell of bleach in the washroom. It was wayyy too strong, really uncomfortable. Come on now, spend a couple more bucks on a cleaning product that at least has some scent to it, or if anything a neutral smell.Genuine Expedia guest review
Located very close to by water market and easy walking distance of parliament buildings,parking available at hotel or cheaper at underground car park next door so our car didn't,t move for our whole stay.Service good in hotel with free breakfast and afternoon tea,in all a very good hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"First visit to Canada's capital city"
Beautful city with wonderful buildings especially parliament hill. Waterways/canals were very scenic and Byward market and shopping malls with good standard of goods.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Avoid the street side."
We stayed for two nights and both nights we had to listen to the drunks coming out of the local bars. This hotel is close to many sites but it's not on a good street. This is at best a two and a half star hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
A fine small hotel. It has all the conveniences required for comfortable stay. Room was clean and bed sheets very clean which I think is important. The location is excellent as it is walking distance from major tourist attractions. The service was also very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
