Tripadvisor is a helpful platform...... mostly. Sometimes I am very surprised how some people reviews hotels. I call it the tripadvisor trap.... This hotel is one of these traps, unfortunately. The location is good. But you can have better hotels for the same money or much less. Our so calles traveller's suite was a big room, far away from a...

This is a lovely hotel located in the heart of Ottawa. It is perfectly located for sight seeing. Our first surprise was the parking. There are only a handful at the side of the hotel and if you go out for the evening chances are really good you do not get a spot when you return. In a neighbourhood that...

Where to stay in Ottawa need not be a question you ask because the answer is The Swiss Hotel! This little Inn is so close to all the action, why would you stay anywhere else? Very walkable to all the Parliament area tours, Rideau, walking/cycling paths, and of course the Byward Market! And owner Sabina is so gracious and a...

Hotel was very nice and clean and well appointed. The decorating was pleasing and different. The reception desk is located in the lower level (below the main street level) along with the breakfast room. Our room was on the second floor which is one floor above the main street level. There is no elevator so one must carry their luggage...

Located in downtown Ottawa, walking distance to everything. A very nice boutique style hotel. Nice clean rooms, with comfortable bed. A good place to stay in Ottawa. Very limited private parking available at the hotel.

I love traveling and have stayed in all types of hotels, large, small, chain, boutique, motels, etc. in Canada, the US and several countries in Europe. I am basing my review on my personal experience during my stay as well as what I consider to be the standard for small hotels. Context: My partner and I stayed here for one...

I'll start by emphasize how friendly the owner, Sabina, is. She inquired about our stay while we were checking out and genuinely cared about our feedback. We had a great stay overall. We were in town for a concert at the RBC Bluesfest, and we went for a drink afterwards, so let's just say we came crashing in the early...

We were in Ottawa for a week and wished we stayed here for the whole week. Our first stay was the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, way over priced and so so.. The Swiss Hotel is in a good "walking" location for everything in the city. The room was perfect, no questions. We loved the breakfast every morning, don't bother going out...

My experience at the Swiss Hotel was one that I hope to experience again. What a charming hotel. It is small, cozy, quaint and very friendly. Sabina and her staff are excellent. Where else would get fresh coffee (by the cup), eggs and french toast made to order? Rooms provided all that was needed and included an iPad. Didn't even...

We stayed for two nights during a recent trip to Ottawa. The room was recently redecorated with a well equipped bathroom and a comfortable bed. The location is a short walk to the Rideau Centre and other central attractions. The breakfast was ample with varied selections. The staff were very helpful.
