This was the wisest decision that I had ever made
May 31, 2014

I spent 2 days in Ottawa with my boyfriend for the tulip festival. We came across with this hotel on TripAdvisor with great reviews, so we decided to give it a try.. And trust me it was the wisest decision that we had ever made! Although the parking space was limited (there were only 5 spots I believe), the location... more

Great hotel, would revisit for sure
May 31, 2014

Far nicer than the usual bland corporate hotel, this family run enterprise is warm , welcoming, comfortable and in a great location. The room was bright, scrupulously clean, well equipped (I needn't have brought hair dryer and tongs) including free iPad. Breakfasts delicious - Sabina's homemade muesli is a must - and the only problem is not overeating. Very reasonably... more

Owners are friendly and accommodating. The rooms are large, spacious and modern. Had and ipad in the room, with high speed Internet, ipod dock and music player.The location is also good, just a two minuet walk from the main street, restraunts and night life. Had a great stay.

Policy nott great for business travel

Have not stayed here but disappointed at their inflexible policy for business travel. Had to change my reservation which was fine. Then had to cancel with 48 hr notice.

Excellent, Cozy Hotel within Walking Distance of Byward Market
April 02, 2014

The Swiss Hotel is nestled in a small residential neighborhood just a few minutes walk from the Byward Market, a major tourist spot in Ottawa. If you are really into walking, the Parliament buildings are an easy walk as well.

Such a Great Choice
March 26, 2014

I found Swiss Hotel last year after my original hotel arrangement fell through. Staying here was one of the highlights of my trip! Excellent service, clean rooms, and the decor made it feel like home for me. I would take staying here over any hotel in Ottawa!

Upon arriving at the Swiss Hotel, we were given a lovely welcome and provided with maps and directions. The hotel is located close enough to the main centre to walk within 5 minutes, very close to the University. So whilst you don't get much traffic noise, there are a lot of students walking past the hotel.

We booked the King Suite for a three-night stay, and were rather underwhelmed. First the good aspects: location was quiet at night and close to Byward Market, bed was comfortable, breakfast (not included) was pretty good, staff were nice and helpful!

I stayed at this hotel for a week long meeting in Ottawa. The location was ideal for the meeting. This is an historical house transformed into a small hotel. My room was clan and nicely decorated.

I had never been to Ottawa and just had the chance to go for 5 days for a conference at a swank place with fabulous architecture & interior decor.
