Fabulous 8.8 From 194 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Charm and Generosity
Was on a long motorcycle trip from Brooklyn to Montreal. About 30 minutes from Ottawa my friend began experiencing mechanical problems with his Royal Enfield. The proprietor was incredibly helpful and gracious -going so far as to allow us the use of her courtyard and provided us w/a drill so we could solve our problem. Luckily for us the guests were all interested in the classic machine so I think it was a win win. Wished we could have stayed longer -the rooms were immaculate and the breakfast was superb. Great experience and this is what boutique hotels are all about. Beaucoup Merci Swiss Hotel!

Great little place!
Fantastic boutique hotel near Byward Market and other Ottawa attractions. We walked to everything. Service was top notch and friendly—down to a personal 1:1 level. Room was modern and comfortable, not to mention spotless. Bed very comfortable and we had great night’s sleeps every night we were there. Bathroom spacious and has nice touches, like a curling iron. We did not have breakfast but it is offered. Parking can be a bit tight but we were lucky and had a space in their lot each day. The neighborhood can appear sketchy. There is a mission located at the end of the street. Residents can be seen hanging around. Most are harmless and will not approach. Two people overdosed (a problem in Ottawa) outside the Tim Horton’s and we helped guide EMS to them. Want to share this as a head’s up to be vigilant, especially if you have children or are not comfortable with seeing such things. It would not stop us from staying here again, however.

Very good 8.0
Great hotel, not such a great area
Hotel was great, clean, well maintained, and unique. The only negative was the area. The hotel sits directly across from a homeless shelter, People from the shelter were out on the street constantly. This fact was mentioned in reviews, but was worse than I was anticipating. everything else about the hotel was fantastic.

Good 6.0
Nice historic hotel / bad area
Hotel itself was clean - staff was nice and helpful. Unfortunately the review lacks a good rating due to the location - which we only found out afterwards, that it's next to some kind of drug rehab shelter for addicts and generally low-lifes. Didn't sleep the entire night, listened to non stop "F YOU" through the window, people fighting, screaming things in a slurry drunken mess - and in the morning thought what was construction, turned out to be someone hitting himself against the bus stop sign. Getting a good nights rest is part of a hotel review and that's too bad. Walking distance is 5-10 mins to mall/parliament hill area.

Downtown Ottawa stay
The hotel is in a good location but the room is small, no bar fridge, no blackout drapes and the bed is a bit hard. I also had a tough time controlling the temperature. The staff were good and the room was clean.
