Owner's Response: Connor was a wonderful guest. I was so appreciative that he told me the sink was clogged immediately after it hapoened. It gave me the opportunity to have it unclogged right away so that they would continue to enjoy their stay. The condo is ideal for one or two people though there is a sofa bed(with new mattress) in the living room.

Nice apartment, well equipped kitchen, close to town-centre

  • 5 of 5

It's a nice, well equipped apartment. I quite liked the spices, groceries and coffee in the kitchen - very useful. The apt. building is walking distance (if you like walking) from the town centre and there's a bus stop right in front of the door.

If you're looking for a good plce to stay, if you like cooking - or ineed going to restaurants, because there are quite a few of them in the neighbourhood - I'd suggest you go here.

I would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to Ottawa.

Clean, well-maintained, great location

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay in unit 6 apartment! Arrived to a well-maintained, clean, accessible and convenient apartment on Rideau. Great heritage building with all amenities you could possibly need. Owner Catherine was easy to communicate with. She responded very quickly and left very detailed instructions for our stay. Unit had everything we could possibly want and more to make our stay enjoyable and stress free. Very quiet, private and safe place. Close to Bayward Market and Parliament hill. Would recommend this place to anyone. Thanks again!

Great location and family friendly (two boys ages 7 & 10)

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 nights in this apartment and truly loved it. We arrived very late and had no troubles finding the building or getting in. The apartment has been nicely renovated and was comfortable for our family of four. The hide-a-bed in the living room is not the most comfortable place to sleep but not horrible either. Even though we are from a very small town with not too much night time noise, the street noise did not bother us at all. The apartment is within very easy walking distance to Byward market, parliament buildings, nature museum, etc. There are two grocery stores just down the street and several good places to eat close by as well. We will for sure stay here next time we are in town and I will recommend this building to others traveling to Ottawa.

Great location, Clean, Everything you need for home base in Ottawa!

  • 4 of 5

This 1 bedroom condo with pullout sleeper sofa was the perfect home base for our 3 night stay in Ottawa. Walking distance, about a mile to a mile and half from the Byward Market (great hub of restaurants, nightlife, shopping), Parliament, Notre Dame Cathedral, Rideau Canal boat rides. No complaints from the 8 year old, and he is not a fan of walking! The apartment is perfect for two adults and two small children. Our 13 year old is really adult size so it was a little cramped for the boys at night with the pullout couch extended there is really not much room for movement, the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. The condo was clean and well kept, stocked with plenty of towels, pillows, and blankets, games and toys, and basic kitchen supplies - having coffee in the freezer was great. There is a mini market across the street and a big market, Loblaws, about a 1/4 mile walk so you can stock up on basics for quick breakfast, lunch, and snacks. You can tell they put alot of work into restoring the building. Love to see preservation instead of tear down. Great job on the restoration. I would stay here again, probably not with two kids though.
