The hostess was very friendly and welcoming. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. Free coffee is available every morning, but no breakfast. It is very conveniently located close to the heart of Ottawa.

Cozy Couples Hotel

Excellent location, I would go again.

Location, location, location. Clean room, clean hotel, excellent coffee machine in the common area (at a fee outside of breakfast hours).

If I remember well, they used to serve breakfast but this was not the case in November 2022. I wonder why that is. Only four parking spots. On-street parking is free in some periods but this can be annoying.

Great stay

Friendly staff on arrival, good-sized room with great facilities (the curling iron was a lovely touch) and a comfortable bed. Good location too, 10 minutes walk from both Rideau Centre and Byward Market.

Only downside was the noise from outside which was very audible (i think the windows were single glazed) and did affect my sleep on the first night. However, this would be easily avoided via earplugs (I just didn't have any).

The place was lovely. Had a wonderful energy about it. Warm, comfortable and relaxing. Spotlessly clean. Very nice modern looking room with everything that you may need during your stay including curling iron, bathrobs , nespresso machine and much more. I had a great sleep in a super comfy bed with beautiful duvet. There is also a gorgeous French style garden with lots of plants. The owner is very pleasant, welcoming and accomodating. Great location. Just a short walking distance to Byward Market.

My husband and I came for business, stayed for one night. The hotel is clean. well maintained, has everything you need, excellent location and a great owner of the hotel.


16 July 2022


Lovely, helpful receptionist. Rooms are clean and has everything you need for a night or two.

The hotel is located in a central but undesirable part of the city. The hotel it self however felt very safe and secure.

Great choice in the heart of Ottawa

Very comfortable room conveniently located in the heart of Ottawa. Nice to be in a private hotel for once.

Couldn't figure out those stupid tv remotes...


12 July 2022

Very good

A boutique hotel with very friendly staff. Perfect location. Room was small but very well equipped and thought through. It had everything you need. Comfy bed. Nice sheets and pillows.

Not a hotel fault but outside area was a bit dodgy. Lots of drug addicts sleeping rough on the steets. It did not feel safe. But walking two blocks away and you were near the center so as long as you can manage that it's fine.

Great little hotel, well maintained and amazing service.

would have been nice if a simple breakfast would be avail - sweet buns, croissants - something


21 June 2022

Great location, great sleep, exceptional staff !

My partner and I had a lovely stay at the Swiss Hotel. The hotel and the room were immaculate and nicely decorated. Sabina (owner) was incredibly friendly and wonderful to deal with. Some parking is available on site for an additional fee but we felt it was very convenient to have the car close by. Also, the beds were very very comfortable. 10/10 would recommend staying here if you want to be in the heart of Ottawa.

Nothing to complain about.

Nice friendly & cozy hotel to explore Ottawa.

Our room was comfortable and a nice size, loved having a nespresso machine in the room, owner was extremely kind and friendly, the outdoor garden sitting area was lovely. We were closely located to Rideau centre mall, byward market, short walk to many museums. a good base to explore the city.

while the location was conveniently located, the neighbour hood was a bit rougher than expected. I did feel safe with the hotels security though. parts of the room could have been cleaner, for example, inside the bathroom vanity drawers with the blow dryer had hair in it and could have been wiped down better.
