My fiancee and I had three nights here whilst visiting a friend in Ottawa. We took a bus to Ottawa and it's best of arriving via bus to take a cab. It cost us less than ten dollars including tip.
The check-in was hassle free, friendly and quick. Our room was spacious and tidy with no bed bugs or surprises anywhere else. To get to parliament hill it's a leisurely 15 minute walk and another 5 minutes to Byward Market which is packed with places to eat.
The hotel is located right near the Museum of Nature and two blocks in between Bank and Elgin streets. Bank was a place for cheap, fast food and 7/11 type places for hotel snacks and Eglin has more restaurants and is the easiest street to catch a bus up to parliament hill (the number 14 stops right outside the Rideau Centre and 1 block from Byward Market.
We had breakfast included with our stay and it was an ok buffet with cereal, hot food (didn't eat it), tea, coffee, juice, toast and fruit. Get down for breakfast early as there are less obnoxious people who don't know how to line up (that's not the hotel's fault).
All in all, for what you pay, the location is awesome, it's a clean hotel and we enjoyed our stay. The WiFi works well.
