We were gobsmacked by this place. Our room was amazing, the bed was oh so comfortable.The breakfast bar was very good, lots of fresh fruit was available. I did like the fact that there were hard boiled eggs on the menu so you could have one or two to take for later in the day.

The location of this hotel is excellent: on Elgin, it is walking distance to all the downtown sights and surrounded by pubs and restaurants. The rooms are converted apartments so they are not as fancy as purpose built hotel rooms but have great conveniences and are comfortable.

From the first minute I walked in the front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. My room itself {315} was much larger than I had expected and spotlessly clean. It had everything I could have wanted or need for my stay. If I ever return to Ottawa this will be my first choice

hi, for a family of 4, can the sofa bed sleep 2 adult-sized boys?
Yes, you can if you are staying over for a weekend. During, the weekdays there is no noise.

Unless you're coming from a small town then you really don't need to worry about the noise from Elgin Street. The noise pales in comparison and I cannot exaggerate that enough. I see you're from Montreal and when you get here you will realize what I mean if you were to compare Elgin Street to any semi busy street in Canada. While Elgin Street does have a fair amount of pedestrians they are generally located around the McDonald's and bars on a Friday or Saturday night. Even then not that many people. If you are looking for a street in Ottawa that does have a decent amount of pedestrians (still compared to Toronto, montreal, Vancouver etc its still pretty quiet . In my opinion any Canadian city imo is quite quiet unless you idk back onto something like the 417 aka a main hwy or the 401 in Toronto.) Also the hotel has parking for $15 a day. And it's underground where to be let in there's a camera that looks at your parking pass before being allowed in. Not that crime in general including car crime even downtown is even an issue.

"3rd floor rooms are the best!!!"
"I think any room here would be great."
"go for the 'modest' dollar increase to get an apartment style suite."
"I believe all rooms meet the same standards. Our room was facing Elgin Street and it was very quiet overnight."
"ask for a corner suite and underground parking"
