"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.

Friendly hotel with simple rooms offering basic comfort and a good breakfast. Thin walls allow you to enjoy the experience of the other guests at no extra charge.

"Quietest Hotel Room Ever"
Moderate hotel, clean, close to Byward Market with lots of pubs, restaurants and activity. I was upgraded to a room with a queen bed, and my room faced the street (5th fllor) -- but I heard no street noise. The parking garage is very tight, but convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location and Good Value"
This is a comfortable and quiet small hotel which is well located close to the restaurants in the Byward Market area and close to downtown Ottawa. The staff are friendly and the hotel has a homey atmosphere with a complimentary tea served in the lobby in the afternoons for guests. The rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed with a work space desk […] and a flat screen television plus a kitchenette. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"You Won't Be Blue"
For the right traveler, this property can work right. Perfect location in the heart of Byward, home to great dining choices and shopping. Two blocks from the U.S. embassy and parks. Parking overnight next door was reasonable but very convenient. A clean room, a decent room rate, but this won't be your place for a "romantic getaway" or a place to kick […] your feet up and recline to chill a bit. My room was acceptable size for a single person, but felt a bit "hard" - no carpeting (was a pergo type floor) and the chairs were a typical kitchen chair, no cushioned arm chair to read, etc. Bed was OK. BUT - if you don't plan to spend much time in your room, and want to take in some of the best Ottawa can offer, this unique little hotel can be a pretty good launch pad. It's a clean place, a little on the spartan side. Just don't take your significant other and expect to make points. BTW, I plan to return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love this place!"
I stayed here 4 years ago when I first came to Ottawa and loved it. I stayed here again for a week this time. Friendly staff, nice and cozy environment, clean and comfort rooms, convenient location. I will always stay here when I am in Ottawa!!!!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
The continental breakfast that they offered was delicious, and the staff was friendly. However, the bed was uncomfortable because there were no cross supports on the frame.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good location - feels like a large b&b"
good, the desk clerk wasn't as knowledgeable as he should have been about where to find things nearby, but otherwise good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was in the heart of the Byward Market shopping area. Tons of places to eat at nearby. Room was spotless, modern and had a tiny kitchenette. Breakfast was a nice combination of hot and cold items. Would highly recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best kept secret"
We absolutely loved our stay, the place was quiet and very clean, Had a good breakfast included. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

"Next to Byward market but a bit disappointing"
Good about the hotel 1) 2-4 minutes walk to byward market. Right in the downtown 2) Fridge & microwave in the room 3) Good complimentary breakfast Bad 1) Bed not very comfortable. Makes noise too 2) AC not up to expectation. Was a bit warm even after AC on. (maybe it was my room unit) 3) Check out time was strict. Maximum 30 minutes moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location near byward market. Very convenient public parking near by with great rate for the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Terrific location and nice quality city inn"
Nice quality inn steps away from Byward Market, museums and Rideau Canal. Comfortable room, fresh and clean with basic amenities and balcony overlooking courtyard. Simple complimentary breakfast and easy on-site parking. Pleasant, helpful service. Ideal for a couple who will be on the go and want cleanliness and simple services.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
They included a breakfast, but is only available from 7-9:30. Room was loud because of the popular/busy street. No fan in room available to drown out loud people outisde.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very convenient location, within walking distance to all the sites. Breakfast could be improved--fairly basic and plain. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Parking next door in public lot--slightly cheaper than their own garage.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The building is a little faded but the fittings (and art) spruce it up. The in-room kitchen facilities are a real plus for breakfast/lunch and coffee/tea, but not up to dinner (which is fair enough) [although breakfast is included]. The staff are excellent - friendly and helpful. For me the location in Byward Market was perfect. Finally, the room rate […] was very good - definitely worth it for what you get.

Excellent hotel in a central location near Byward market and restaurants, as well as specialty shops. Staff was very helpful and assisted in recommending good places to eat and best transport routes.

My stay was okay. The major problem i had was that, my bed was most often not well laid, i had to clean the toilet bowl on arrival.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Stay in April"
Was pleasantly by the cleanliness if the hotel and the location. They are very accommodating, loved that they had laptops that you could use in their lounge and there were snacks throughout the day that you could have all complimentary. Will definitely stay there again. I parked my car in their garage and didn't need it till I left.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel. Especially the location. the balcony provides direct view of the market and the embassy over the other side. Only down factor being room utilities are outdated.. small tv.. and older bed style. Never the less, the rooms and hotel is very clean and has a great breakfast. The staff is very helping and the complimentary sauna is very pleasing. […] Would definately recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Staff but Old Hotel"
The staff in the hotel were great but the hotel itself is way too old. They should update it. Even the TV is too old that I can't hook it up to my computer to watch my movies and shows online. It is great though you have kitchen stuff, coffee maker, microwave, and refrigerator on the room. The hotel has a great location though which id a nice walking […] distance to the restaurants, cafes, and stuff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great for the price"
Pros: Very friendly & helpful staff Great Location Free breakfast & Wifi Balcony Cons: Dated roomsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was good but less than satisfying. Expected more from the deal but the room offered was not good and upto the mark. The room was just fit for the deal as it was one of those that never get filled and left for the deals.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well worth it!!!"
We were here on business and thoroughly enjoyed the room. It was very clean and comfortable. We would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone staying in Ottawa.Genuine Expedia guest review

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.

"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
