"Nice little place in Ottawa!"
We love the ByWard market area, and stay there every time we go to Ottawa. We have stayed in several places, and like the Inn very much, as it is a very good value and has excellent location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Good value for the money. Free breakfast was very goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little gem in the center of Ottawa"
This is a small, unpretentious hotel right in the centre of Ottawa, walking distance to many major attractions and all the shopping. The room is clean, and comes with a fridge, microwave, a coffee maker and free bottled water. THE FULL BREAKFAST IS FREE!!! Eggs, breakfast burritos, croissants, etc...There is also afternoon tea...The staff is friendly […] and efficient. I would definitely go back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the breakfast and the tea exceeded expectations. the hotel is a little care worn but the location is superb. they were having internet problems while we were there. they were resolved by sunday morning but we were checking out on sunday so the fix came a little late. i would rebook however, the pluses far outstripped the negatives.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, lots of shopping restaurants and nightlife. I loved staying at a hotel that wasn't a chain, it had so much more character.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"2 nights late December 2014"
We found the room comfortable and decently appointed. The morning breakfast was more than we expected, although the coffee we found very strong. The hotel staff were very polite, and were ready to help with information about near by attractions. The central location made touring the capital very easy. When the need arises I would be happy to stay here […] again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"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.

Convenient for people who go to American embassy, byward market, and parliament hill. It's located in downtown, quiet neighborhood, and on too of that, you have complimentary snacks, cookies, crackers, fruit, coffee and tea on tea time everyday.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, wonderful staff"
I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. It has a great location, close to all the restaurants. Very nice, accommodating staff. Breakfast was pretty basic, but sufficient, and the afternoon tea (with cheese, cookies, crackers) was a nice touch. Rooms were very warm (it was cold outside). I would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great Quality! Great place to stay."
I always stay here when I visit Ottawa, love the service, the rooms are clean and are well equipped. The staff always go above and beyond to make you comfortable. They are the best!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I went to renew my US work visa at the US Embassy in Ottawa, which is at the end of Clarence street (the street that the hotel is on). I selected on price and proximity, and was quite frankly expecting somewhat of a lower-end experience. I was pleasantly surprised, as ByWard Blue is definitely not that! The room was clean, simple and had everything […] I needed (including a microwave). The bed was very comfortable, bedding was clean and modern, and I slept well every night (even though the visa renewal experience is a little stressful). The hotel is quaint without being presumptuously so, and very close to everything, with great food close by. All in all, a teriffic experience! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Basic hotel in a good location"
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

"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

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

"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.
