"More Than Impressed!"
We were very happy with our stay, and feel that we received great value for the amount we paid. The room was basic, but nicely appointed. The location was within walking distance to the market, shopping district,the Parliament Buildings, Rideau Canal, and other tourist attractions. The breakfast was excellent, and they even served a complimentary afternoon […] tea. Our stay couldn't have been better! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Pics don't show real room. The room was small, like a dorm of a college residence. Cheap furniture. Run down. Not worth what was paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Short stay that's all..."
Simple place and really nothing to write about. Location is great (walking distance to everywhere in the By Ward Market) & good service too. Simple breakfasts and snack in the afternoon a nice touch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"LOCATION, Location, and QUIET and tidy rooms"
Nothing beats FREE SAUNA ! Clean, quiet, and spacious room, washrooms. Stayed for a night, was amazed at the balcony which is good for smokers (where you can smoke). Complimentary breakfast was average though at $90 / night (after 26% discount, booked through hotel.com) it was a good deal. Will visit again and recommend !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Economical, sufficient and sufficient."
Nice place. Clean room. Was only there one night. Breakfast was minimalist but included and sufficient. Parking is tight. Not adopt the price. I would go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location Location Location!!!"
Overall a wonderful stay! Location is amazing! Inn is a bit old, but worth it for how close you are to everything in Byward market. Walk to the Rideau Mall in 10 min or Rideau canal in 20 minutes. Walk to many many restaurants or Irish pubs within 5 minutes easily (even with the mess and cold of winter). Parking was a bit annoying because they don't […] have enough parking for everyone, but 2 seconds down the street there is municipal parking (and the fee is same as hotel). Our room was quite spacious with a little kitchenette (countertop with microwave, fridge, utensils including corkscrew and plates too, coffee pot and complimentary coffee) Bed was comfortable and TV was working well. Shower was ok but water pressure was terrible. Overall a very nice room and super clean with laminate floors as opposed to carpet which we really liked. Noise level is difficult (probably due to the age of the place). We had some drinks so didn't have too hard of a time sleeping when another group waltzed into their room around 3:30am being a bit rowdy. Free breakfast was really nice, had bacon, breakfast sandwiches ready, omelettes, breakfast potatoes and then your usual yogurts/toast and juices/coffee. Overall I would definitely stay here again. Great price, and truly cannot beat the location! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Big hotel alternative"
Was just looking for a clean comfortable room at a reasonable price in the Byward area. This was perfect. I didn't expect much of a breakfast with the room at the rate I paid but was pleasantly surprised. Everything was fine and would certainly stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My only concern was with the plumbing. When someone was taking a shower in the room next door, the noise was considerable. The hallways are also very narrow and someone unlocking the room across from mine was very noisy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Another great stay at Byward Blue!"
Have stayed at Byward Blue many times, visit Ottawa 3-4 times per year to visit family and business clients. Good location for quick access in and out of town (417)by car, but great location for walking to all the downtown attractions and the Byward market. Over the years they have gradually improved their offering, noted very nice bathrobes in the […] rooms as an added touch. Breakfast was tasty and hot. Very friendly staff. Older property but well maintained. Used to be a seniors residence so each room has a mini fridge, microwave, kettle and a basic supply of cutlery, plates, cups and glasses and a small sink, no stove. Fridge with mini freezer is great for those who like us buy food from the Byward market to take home the next day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"I would stay again"
excellent location in the Byword market. Breakfast was very well done and ample. Bed was comfortable with basic furnishings. Puzzled still at their refusal to print a receipt for the stay. Insisted that was Hotel.com's problem.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Odd to have a damage deposit required"
stay was fine except for the $150 damage deposit on check-in. The hold was still on my credit card a week later (well after check-out), guess they forgot! Would go backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great for travel in Ottawa"
Very clean room and good service. The breakfast is very nice!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fancy Backpackers Hostel"
This place is a fancy backpackers hostel. Cons: Rooms are very basic and need a paint job, floors are cold and carpet less, cleaning is haphazard (our side tables were covered in dust), pillows and duvets (lacking proper duvet covers) very thin. Front desk staff does the bare minimum; one guy doesn't even look up when you talk to him, as his magazine […] is more urgent. No airport shuttle, tho it is advertised on their site Pros: full hot breakfast, nice lounge (though cold), colorful outsider art paintings throughout, elevator, nice ladies running the breakfast, location location location. I don't plan to stay there again. At the same price I'd go for Air BnB or a bed and breakfast in Sandy Hill. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Due to road conditions we decided to take a room,but the neighbourhood was not the best to walk around at night due to the number of people begging for money and being very rude when you say no.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent value and location"
Ideally located with a spacious room and a very comfortable bed. The breakfasts were varied and enjoyable. It was an excellent location in relation to the most historic sites of Ottawa. Warmly recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location, we left our car in the public parking garage next door to the hotel and walked to different attractions. Huge selection of pubs, restaurants etc nearby. Upper floor room with balcony was at back of hotel and very quiet, Bathroom was dated but all exceptionally clean. Room had kitchen area and tea/coffee making. Hot breakfast incl. […] with good selection of items; afternoon tea also served. Reminiscent of small European hotels: not luxurious but excellent value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay"
Stayed over for a few days during Christmas 2014. Great location. Good breakfast. Staff very helpful. Very charming Inn with a personal touch - it feels you are more at home than a hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice convenient hotel in downtown Ottawa"
We were pleased with the amenities and cleanliness of our room. Though an older and quaint hotel, nothing was lacking if you don't need marble sinks and flooring to feel comfortable. Some underground parking available but additional parking available 1/2 block down the street for $2/night less. No noise issues at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice small hotel ....very clean!"
The staff are great....very clean rooms...liked the old style atmosphere...small room but for 2 of us it suited our needs....parking was next door at the public lot....easy walk to the parliament buildings byward market, and mall...if we were doing things downtown..I would stay here again..Genuine Expedia guest review
"See you next Ottawa visit !"
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
"Nice hotel,10 minute walk to the Nat. Art Gallery"
NO LIGHTS ABOVE THE BATHROOM MIRROR. Impossible to see yourself the excuse was, "it's an old building" !!Genuine Expedia 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
"Right in the byward market"
This is a quaint hotel right in Ottawa's byward market. Very friendly staff and great breakfast included. There is also a complimentary snacky thing in the afternoon. Room was very comfortable with a mini fridge and microwave. Reception is friendly.Genuine Expedia 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
