Ottawa GEM
This is a GEM in Ottawa. Handy to downtown and the Market. There are shared bathrooms for some rooms though have stayed here a few times and it has worked just fine.

Plesent Surprise
Presently surprised the inside was better than the outside. Parking secure. A reasonable distance from the town centre to walk. You must see the light show on the Government buildings

Good 6,0
Overall the place is clean. The only thing that amused me is that there is only one bathroom on the floor we had to share (for 4 rooms). And the note said do not use shower after 10:00pm! We came there after 4 hours of driving in 96 degrees weather around 9:30pm. There was no way we wouldn’t take a quick shower before going to bad!

Wonderful! So clean and charming
Such a great place! The room was spacious, very comfortable, and quiet. The whole house was well maintained and so clean. I would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was wonderful, the staff welcoming, and overall a very comfortable experience. We were hesitant about sharing a bathroom but it was no issue. The location is great too, plenty of eats and dry nearby, right near the canal, and only a 20-minute walk to Parliament Hill.

Charming, friendly Edwardian-era B&B
Charming, friendly Edwardian-era B&B in a great area. Very clean and quiet. The only drawback is limited tight parking, so be sure to book ahead. Will stay again.

Highly recommended
We had a lovely stay at the Rideau Inn. The owner was exceptional, very accommodating and considerate. The inn is close to many restaurants and only a 15 minute walk to the Parliment Buildings. Would definitely stay there again. Thank you Lucy😀

Cheap student housing - do not stay here
I'll start by saying the staff were very nice and my room was clean...I booked this at the last minute because all other reasonably priced downtown hotels were booked. The picture of the common areas looked decent enough. Unfortunately, my room was in the basement, furnished with literally the cheapest Ikea furniture available, and a TV the size of a postage stamp. The chair at the desk tore my shirt (two large sections were splintered off and clearly glued back down. The bathroom was outside my room and I did not have a housecoat (nor did they provide one), so I had to bring a change of clothes with me when I showered. The stairway down to my room was so narrow and steep I couldn't bring my bags down without almost tripping down the stairs. The breakfast is continental, plus hard-boiled eggs. I have stayed at a number of bed and breakfasts. Never have I had an experience like this. The owners should visit some of the delightful spots in Kingston or Stratford to see how this is done. At over $200 per night, I should have received better than student housing-standard accommodations. Do not stay here.

Lucy was very friendly and helpful. Our only problem was that the weather had become unseasonably warm and the air conditioning was off. A bit of a problem for a third floor room in a heritage house, but nobody's fault.
