"We are going back!"
Small hotel on the edge of Byward Market. Greeted by Arvind and new out stay would be lovely. The room are basic....European style. But clean and comfortable. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Free Breakfast, Free afternoon tea. They have nine parking spaces on the premises which you have to reserve, otherwise the public municipal lot. Both cost the same so we stayed in the Municipal Lot. The staff really was on top of their game. We would definitely go back. Multi lingual staff was impressive.

"Byward does not Sing the Blues!"
Byward Blue has an excellent staff; the location is 1.5 blocks from a lively restaurant area & night life area and the Byward Market. Enjoyed the Rideau Canal, observing the locks, the park, bike rental, the National Gallery, all in walking distance! We so loved the balcony and the good use of space! The only negative was that the curtains were white with no blocking of the bright sun. I appreciated the absence of carpet in the room. The breakfast was nice, but the quality of food okay. I would most certainly stay at BBInn again...and for a longer period of time!

"Good hotel, good value, well located"
The hotel was quite pleasant, well located, and homey. Not new so don't expect super-modern finishes. Good breakfast. Biggest problem is the lack of central A/C in the rooms - the portable units in the rooms are extremely loud and you have to run them constantly during the warm season, plus it's quite easy for the air hose to detach. It wouldn't be necessary to run the A/C so much if the hotel would just provide standard free-standing or table top fans. It would save energy and be much more pleasant for sleeping than the loud roar of the A/C! In the cooler seasons, I expect this wouldn't be an issue.

This is a very quaint little hotel. Great breakfast, very comfortable room, very quiet. It is located within walking distance of so much to do and see and provided a great little respite to come back to. We enjoyed sitting out on our little patio for a second cup of coffee, and on the porch for breakfast.

overall a great hotel, quiet, tastefully done. Rooms are good size, its an older hotel but well kept. A little patio off my room, but it was quite cold so I couldn't use it. great breakfast and service in the dinning area. Location is great, close to everything downtown, but still not noisy. Street parking is available as long as you move your car by 7am. Parking is a few buildings away and its pay parking.

"Once again, the perfect stay..."
This is the second time I've stayed at Byward Blue Inn, and I've loved it both times. The rooms are clean and bright enough without being overbearing. The decor is simple but nice, which is exactly what I want. The location is perfect as well - I stay here when renewing my E-3 visa at the US Embassy which is literally at the end of Clarence Street, just a few minutes walk away. The last night I stayed was a Thursday, and I was awoken by some jerks having what sounded like a party a few rooms away. The were speaking very loudly, obviously drunk. The hotel manager on duty promptly came up and politely but firmly ejected folks who were not staying at the hotel, but the noise persisted a little while later. The MOD then again politely but firmly asked the guests to leave the hotel, as they were being obnoxious. Well done! I was able to go back to sleep and have the rest of the night uninterrupted. I've stayed a total of 10 nights and that was the only incident ever. Every other night has been blissfully uneventful and quiet! Thank you.

"Delightful Inn, great location"
Great location near restaurants, shops and all things to see and do. We parked in the hotel garage with in/out privileges but walked everywhere. Full breakfast and all day good coffee included. Staff very pleasant, helpful and professional. Easy walk to the National Gallery of Art, Parliament buildings, downtown and most major sights. The Inn has about 40 rooms on 6 floors, and a garage in the basement reachable by the elevator. We were there during a busy vacation week but all was quiet - like nice apartment living. Room amenities are great: cable TV, wi-fi, microwave, fridge, dishes, sink, full bathroom with tub, small dining table with 2 chairs, and a work desk area with swivel chair . Our room had a balcony with small table and 2 chairs. Three delightful days and nights at a reasonable price.

"The warmest home in the coldest season"
I travelled to Ottawa to process my US visa and booked myself at Byward Blue Inn online based on strong reviews that I read and which I found out to be correct. I arrived by bus from New York and when I got to the hotel it was only 8.30am meaning way before the normal check in time. The receiptionest was such welcoming person who not only checked me in a beautiful room but also offered if I wanted that I could have breakfast. I felt welcomed and felt at home. Being winter and this being snowy Ottawa you can imagine if I was to encounter unwelcoming receiptionest what that might feel on top of the cold weather. The afternoon tea is excellent, location is one of the best just at a walking distance to US embassy, at the heart of the historic market and close to the Mall. Price is also great paid below $100usd. Stay here and enjoy the comfort that small hotels offer.

"Great value in Byward Market"
I chose the Byward Blue Inn for location and price. It was convenient for driving in and out of downtown Ottawa, and easy walking distance to restaurants and other things to do. The room was comfortable enough for business trip alone, but if traveling with someone I would have liked a comfortable sofa or couple of stuffed chairs for hanging around at times. The room did have a fridge, small table, and 2 chairs at the table which would have been great for eating in the room. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The free breakfast was OK, not anything special, but enough to get through to lunch. Parking very convenient (though limited) in an underground garage; stress limited. Summary: great place for a business trip when I'm traveling alone and not in the room much; price was great and I would stay there again.

Had a nice stay, it's a smaller hotel but the rooms are very nice and location is excellent. The only problem I had was inconsistent Wifi connectivity. As a business traveler this is very important, connectivity was spotty depending on location and the support wasn't very helpful. Nothing against the hotel staff, they contract this work out.

Location : This place is located in the Byward market which has plenty of cafes, pubs, restaurants and market. You can walk, crawl or run after your drank from the pubs in Byward market to hotel. So BEST LOCATION. Parking : Hotel has a parking which cost - $15/night, Next door to hotel is a private parking space -$13/night, Byward market parking is 2 mins walk from the hotel ( heard its cheaper than $13/dollars) Hotel Staff : Friendly, helpful, courtesies and knowledgeable about the Ottawa - I will rate them 5 stars Room : Room is filled with IKEA furniture. Microwave, plates and cups made our life easy. Refrigerator is also avaialble. I will rate 3.5 for the room. Rooms are clean. Remember this place is an old establishment. US Embassy : This place is 5 min walk to US embassy.

"Old hotel, but fantastic location and people"
The staff at Byward Blue Inn was extremely courteous, helpful and friendly. The service was top-notch, and the complimentary breakfast was excellent every day. The hotel, as you can tell by the name, is literally steps from Byward Market with dozens of excellent restaurants and shops. The only negative comment is that the hotel is very old and the updates haven't been very good, so the rooms are not attractive nor are they particularly comfortable.
