I travel regularly to Ottawa for business and this is the perfect home away from home. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed for business (if not a little quirky). Breakfast are great and they are able to provide small meals throughout the day if needed. The Manager is excellent and makes you feel right at home. Parking can...

We only stayed one night (September 21, 2013) and were quite pleased with our experience at the Albert House Inn. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. A bed that helped us sleep in mere moments and wake up refreshed. A cozy and comfortable room with everything we needed. Coffee, tea or hot chocolate available in a sitting room at any time....

We just spent one night (August 21, 2013) at the Albert House and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is in the heart of downtown Ottawa so it was nice to be close to things. You can walk to Parliament Hill and other downtown attractions but it is a longish walk (20 minutes) and at times very busy traffic. The Inn...

I was doing some consulting work in Ottawa, and the hosting organization offered the Albert House Inn for my accommodation. This little jewel in downtown Ottawa has seventeen rooms, and is a wonderful example of a repurposed historic building. A dining area in the basement provided an excellent breakfast (juice, coffee, tea, breakfast sandwich, a variety of pancakes, toast, eggs...

Stayed with my wife & another couple on 9th & 10th August 2013.Hotel was originally a house designed & built as his family home by a respected Canadian architect in 1875. The current owners have tastefully furnished & decorated the 17 room hotel to reflect that period. We stayed in Room 301, a superior queen @ $148 per night bed...

Have stayed here many times over the years, staff is friendly and breakfast great, rooms cozy, only problem is that there seems to be some lack of coordination: room doesnt get serviced everyday, have experienced this twice now, when I return to room and find towels havent been changed or garbage emptied .... otherwise would have given full five stars

Thank you for your comments and your return visits to our Inn. I would like to respond to your complaints about our service. Our rooms are cleaned everyday and usually by 3pm at the latest. However, if a guest returns during the day when room cleaning is taking place, we may not have gotten to a particular room at that...

My wife and I have enjoyed our Ottawa Marathon race weekend staying at the Albert House for the past two years. The house is well maintained with comfortable rooms and facilities.

I stayed here almost every week for the better part of two years. The service is great, the location is close to everything downtown in Ottawa, the house and the rooms are well-kept and the breakfast is simply awesome.

Perfect location! Beautiful rooms, lovely, friendly, genuine service. Actually felt a lot like b & b's in England. Big enough to be private, small enough to feel homelike. We met friends there and made new ones! Steps from a pretty little park and a few short blocks from all that downtown Ottawa has to offer! Truly a magical experience. I...

We had a great stay in Albert House Inn in Toronto. Charming, cozy, carefully decorated. You feel as if staying in an old, but well preserved house. Service is wonderful. Breakfast is great, home made. I would indicate it to my friends. Besides, it is a good break from regular same looking type hotels. And the price is good, compared...
