"Perfect location and great price!"
We had a great stay at the Byward Blue Inn. I was most impressed by the small touches such as the complimentary afternoon tea (cheese and crackers, fruit, cookies, and beverages), a free bottle of water in the room, and a plethora of umbrellas and books to borrow. The staff was very informative and friendly and the breakfast was great. Location was […] great--right in the Byward Market and about a 15 minute walk from parliament. The only downsides were that the elevator was exceptionally slow (we opted to take the stairs most of the time) and the beds weren't super comfy. I think they came from Ikea. Also, the underground parking was full when we arrived so we had to park on the street which I was a bit nervous about but it ended up just fine. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay and I highly recommend this hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing stay in Ottawa"
Very wonderful stay. Steps from the Byward Market. Delicious hot breakfast and helpful staff. Would love to return one day!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quaint oasis in busy downtown Ottawa."
Quaint little Hotel just a block away from the Market. Loved our stay there. Parking was tight but we have a small car. The breakfast was superb and for free. You could sit out or stay in to eat your breakfast. The little Filipino girl looking after us for breakfast was very helpful and just a joy. The hotel has a main sitting room with books you can […] borrow. Our room had a balcony overlooking a lovely garden enclosure with benches, shade and a water fountain.

"Exactly what we wanted"
The staff were friendly and very helpful. Our room had everything we needed, and anything extra we asked for was provided immediately. It was nice and quiet during our stay, great for sleeping! We would definitely enjoying staying at this inn again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice hotel and the cost / value is excellent, close to everything and I rarely give hotels all were excellent but even with the lack of parking due to the number of guests and parking spots, you can park on the city run parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
Walking distance to market area, Parliament, Arts Gallery, Music hall and canal. Room was comfortable with big terrace. Hotel staff were very helpful and breakfast was good. Enjoyed our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel if your not looking for style."
The hotel was a little bit of a disappointment. I got a great deal on the hotel, and for the price I paid I can't complain too much. Its a very old Inn and there's a lot of maintenance issues that need some attention. All the A/C units are Window units and don't really do the job. Our unit leaked from the condensation and made a huge mess of the Window […] sills paint. The bed was horribly uncomfortable. I've never been so sore the next morning in my life. The kitchenette was very handy though, they had glasses and mugs there for your coffee and wine, but no water glasses. There was a coffee maker there and coffee packs which was wonderful. The creamers were spoiled though, and I had to waste my full coffee mug. The parking lot for the Inn's guests was full almost every night that we stayed so we had to park and pay for public parking. We reserved a spot in there lot for one of the nights but someone else had taken it. It would have been nice to know the terms of parking at the time of reservation. The Inn's breakfast was a great surprise. They had eggs and bacon, yogurt and some fruit, it was very nice. They also had a time where they put out tea, cheese and crackers. You were able to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the treats and sunshine. The area where the Inn is located was definitely the worst part. There was numerous amounts of homeless people and beggars wondering the street. It made going for walks very sad and difficult. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"My Byward Blue Hotel First Time Experience"
The Staff were very accommodating, the rate was very reasonable for the area Byward Market. My only issue is that the a/c did not seem to be functioning very well, in fairness to the hotel, I did not report this, I was out most of the day and night, when I returned later at night the heat was not so bad that it affected my sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent hotel, not too new but very well maintained, it's got some good upgrades, very good location and excellent breakfast. Very good services, very friendly personnel. Excellent over all rating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Byward Blue hotel"
Hotel was very comfortable. Staff provided excellent info about Ottawa. Parking was in a municpal lot nexrt door, only 30 yards away. Breakfast(eggs & ham etc), afternoon tea & a spa were included. All round a pleasant experience only steps from the Byward market and a short walk from Parliament buildings & the Art Gallery.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good value and location"
location was excellent and within walking distance main shopping district downtown in Old Montreal. The room was adequate for the price you're paying. The staff are friendly. It would be nice if they had a flat screen TVs 32 inch and better cable. Quite enough for downtown off of St Catherine's Street.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Byward blue inn"
It was great, staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was great aswellGenuine Expedia guest review
I was on the ground floor, in the room nearest reception. I don't know whether I was under a jacuzzi or generator or what, but every half hour or so, some sort of pump or generator started up and ran for 10 mins or so. It was very loud and, by 3.30am I was getting pretty fed up with it. Felt there was no point in complaining the following morning as […] I was only there one night. Not sure I'd stay again.

"Location Best of All"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Byward Blue Inn. Close to the Byward Market and all places of interest. Hotel staff were amazing. Breakfast was thoroughly enjoyable with a wide array of choices. Nice to have afternoon tea also. What a lovely touch to have a bottle of pure water waiting for us in our room every day. Also loved the free Wi-Fi. Internet […] access and complimentary breakfast were main reasons we stayed here. Would definitely return if in Ottawa again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right in the Byward Market"
It met all expectations. Staff was accommodating, if not overtly outgoing. Breakfast Room attendant was fast and efficient. I liked the breakfast setup. The room was clean and reasonably well laid out. The wifi worked well. What more could you want? Great location in the Byward Market.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good place at a good price !"
Near everything you want to see in Ottawa, no need to take the car and the ambiance of the market is worth it. I will go back next year for the marathon that's for sure.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location & Extras"
Best continental breakfast at any hotel I've experienced. Courteous hotel staff. Central location for experiencing the Bymarket nightlife and scenery. Fantastic walk out patio, but we didn't get to use. Next time!Genuine Expedia guest review

Arrived early and the staff were very helpful regarding parking and care of our older vehicle. Made great recommendations for restaurants. The continental breakfast was much more than expected and very tasty. Despite being so close to the Market, nights were very quiet. I will be back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nearly a country inn in downtown Ottawa..."
Pocket size hotel of 50+ rooms. Ours was with a balcony on the rear, very calm, with small table and outdoor chairs . The room was clean, neatly furnished, w/ microwave, plates, fridge, complimentary bottle of purified water (is it really necessary in Ottawa ?..), coffee maker and all the necessary things for an early coffee or tea. Bathroom was perfect. […] Front desk personnel was bilingual, and very helpful. We could park our car in the hotel garage even before check-in time, and pick it up late on the departure. Breakfast is included and served in a large well decorated and furnished place, and offers a choice of standard continental stuff, bread, muffins, croissants, etc, but also mini-omelettes, bacon, potatoes, juices, etc. So in short: it is a small hotel offering the comfort and amenities of much bigger ones, along with smiling and helpful personnel, and a very few streets from Byward Market...

Great little place!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great proximity to Byward Market, nightlife and restaurants. Didn't have to drive all weekend. Enjoyed the balcony for early morning coffee and late night glass of wine.

"Byward Blue Ribbon"
This place has a very friendly and welcoming staff. I had booked a non balcony room, but they upgraded me for to a room with a balcony as the hotel wasn't that filled. My stay was for one night only, but I was very satisfied with it. It is in a prime location and you have so many things to do close by. Tip: there are public parking lots close by that […] you can use as an alternative to the private parking the hotel provides and it costs just one third of the hotel's parking charges.

Hotel was perfect for the price. Artwork is beautiful. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful. Be careful of public parking lot next door, our car was broken into.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location. very clean .just a little bit dated"
Can't complain about about the location. A popular part of town as easy walk to the main downtown tourist attractions. The room and the hotel are kept very clean. The hotel is itself a little dated but it is maintained and very clean as I have said. Staff were very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Blue Ribbon for Byward Blue Inn"
Excellent downtown location, close to the amenities of the market area clubs, restaurants, and shopping. Easy access to cross-town links, and secured underground parking. Staff made our stay most enjoyable. We'll be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
It's a good hotel if you are not planning to be there a lot. It has a great location, people is friendly, there's a typical small breakfast included and also a tea time during the evening.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location is biggest +"
Location, location, location! Hotel near Parliament Hill, National Gallery, Byward Market, Rideau Centre, etc. All within easy walking distance. Good full breakfast and afternoon tea is nice too. Stayed two nights. Saturday did hear some noise on street and in hallway (room was next to elevator), which was annoying but settled down later on. Sunday […] night was much quieter as would be expected. Sink in bathroom was loose from base but worked okay. The doorknob on outside of room door was loose and broken (could come off in your hand) and I informed front desk and they said someone would fix it. With bolt lock the room was still secure, but the facility is a bit older and it shows a bit. Bed was comfortable. It was generally clean and had a homey feel which was nice. Public parking garage located on same street which I used. It was about eight dollars per night. On Sunday I was able to park on the street. Not a bad hotel, I would stay here again. I did get an exceptionally good rate by gambling and getting the hotel online from Expedia without knowing name until after booking it. If you are fussy, find another hotel. If location and price is important to you, then this is a good place to stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very short stay for business purpose, and weather was poor so no opportunity to view sights other than out of taxi window. Arrived after midnight, quick check in, although a little perfunctory.top floor room , balcony out looking street, clean room and comfortable bed.

Right downtown and close to shopping, restaurants , Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
A no non-sense / bare bones place to stay. A little more luxury could do wonders to this place....Friendly staff and a decent breakfast almost made up for the extremely cheap bathroom and the ice cold floor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not 3 star quality"
I booked this hotel as an unknown 3star hotel in the downtown Ottawa area. The location is fantastic and the staff try hard. The room we had was very out of date and very cheaply done. It looked like a 1980s condo/ apartment that they forgot to renovate when they changed to a hotel. If this was rated as 2star I would've been very satisfied with it but […] it is not 3star.

"Great private inn in the Byward Market"
Very clean (room and main part of hotel). Great continental breakfast. Room was spacious and staff lovely. Hotel was currently being reno'd which made for some noise. Our room had not been updated so older everything. Overall great location and price. No real complaints and would recommend it for travellers on a budget or who are not going to spend […] much time in the room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

the only problem was that a two bed room come with 2 single beds, this was terrible but other then that it was o.k.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a great trip.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff were very polite, our room was comfortable. The location is great, a short walk to everything. We had a great view from the balcony. The only problem we had was a noisy man in the hall at 3 a.m. but that wasn't the Inn's fault. The next time I visit Ottawa I will book this location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was great. Breakfast was free, but it was terrible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good location and quaint place."
We had a really good stay at Byward... The room was cosy and ours had a balcony.. on the front .. It was quiet even on a weekday morning.. The breakfast had a nice variety to offer.. The coffee could be stronger.. seemed quite watered down. It has a European flavor to it.. like some inns there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
