Location was good. The apartment was clean and comfortable. We did make a couple of requests during our stay and did not receive any replies. We requested to see if we could stay an extra night and also notified the owner that the coffee maker did not work and did not hear back regarding either question. Some items that could be added for convenience, would be tea towels to dry dishes, a bathmat, hand towels in the bathroom and kleenex.

Will Never Return or Recommend
Suite 208: all concrete floors - no rugs; your view is a wall when you look out the window - no "city-wide view" as they state; the kitchenette has no table & chairs at which to sit and eat a meal - it is only appliances; the couch was actually a loveseat made of a piece of foam on wood that was upholstered; the bed was a lumpy mattress on wooden boards (no box spring) in a wooden frame. We were given the wrong codes to get into the building and into the Suite. Building management insisted the codes were right but they were not - we got in only by the helpfulness of other residents and the building maintenance person. Parking is off-site and you have to move your vehicle by 6:30 a.m. On the good side, the appliances worked, the building was clean and we met some nice people in the building.

Could of been better.
We arrived and the room was clean but there was no toilet paper and the glasses were dirty so we had to clean them. We were also not informed about security deposit of 300$. We were not told and the room was fine but this shouldn’t of happened in the first place.

This was an extremely beautiful find. The room was spacious, functional and it had everything you would need. Highly recommended, close to downtown and easy access to downtown Ottawa. Parking on the street overnight and it had a common area lounge and a rooftop patio. What a perfect place. Ryan was also very quick to answer questions by email, a definite plus. We will certainly be back.

Nice week's stay!
The beds are huge and comfy, air conditioning was nice and fully equipped kitchen was very useful. Quickie convenience store onw block over for all your immediate necessities (milk, bread, etc) and location fabulous (20 minute walk to byward and 5 minute walk to university). Was a nice week stay!

Nice room but need better service
I didn't notice that I had to arrange check-in time in advance so when we arrived we could not get in. We called the number but it was answering machine and asked us to email. We needed wifi so had to go to a coffee shop to contact the owner and waited a response for a while. I saw another confused guest at the entrance too. I wished they provided more info about their check in system with the email address not only phone number. The room was ok, but coffee machine was not clean(old coffee was still in) and also out of coffee. We had to grab a coffee at a convenience store every morning. The towel hunger in the bathroom was broken. Towels were not enough.(only 4 medium size towels were provided for 4 guests. No other towels) There were no windows to open so had to use air conditioner but it was quite strong even changed a setting. We had to turn on and off continuously. The king bed mattress was not king size but two single mattress, which was ok but not the best.

Good stay in nice area of Ottawa
Overall this is a good place to stay. We liked that there is a full kitchen with full-sized appliances as we cooked most of our meals. The kitchen is equipped with pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, cooking utensils. There were no kitchen linens provided. In the bathroom there were no face cloths and the towels are quite thin and poor quality. The king beds are really 2 twin mattresses set up on a pull-out frame. However, if the mattresses are turned to be vertically side by side and not horizontal as they were presented, you will find it to be much more comfortable. There are no black-out curtains, so the sun wakes you up. The window shades are good quality and prevent the room from heating up from the sun, when you don't want that, but they do not darken the room. Parking is an issue. The parking on-site is for permanent paid residents. The establishment states there is paid parking a block away, which is true but it is owned by the U of Ottawa. You can park 24 hours, but it is split into 2 segments. The night segment ends at 5:59 am and you need to go at 6 am and buy the day-time segment. You can't pay for 24 hrs at a time. There is on-street parking overnight for free but you need to move you car during the day in one or three hour segments, depending on where you park, unless you have a city parking permit.
