About this listing
Small private furnished room in the heart of the historical Byward Market. Shared bathroom, spacious kitchen, balconies, and living room.
Partially renovated unit on second floor of older building. Feel free to use anything in the kitchen.
Short walk to National Gallery, Parliament Hill, Majors Hill Park, the Rideau Canal and locks. Numerous independent restos and cafes, as well as bars and boutiques. The University of Ottawa is about a 20 minute walk. The American Embassy is a only few blocks away, for those in town for bureaucracy purposes, but there is so much to do and see that it just may help to forget about the stress of deadlines and paperwork :)
Please note: There are cats in the apartment.
The parking situation: on the street 2 hours max Mon-Fri from 7 am to 7 pm (which means just moving it every couple of hours during the day). Unlimited street parking on weekends and holidays. Very reasonably-priced municipal indoor parking lot two blocks from here.
There is a major bus hub, six blocks away, at the Rideau Centre.
Casual and relaxed urban setting, home to plants and animals, books and music.
Internet, bathroom, living room, kitchen, outside deck.
I am happy to help you out before and/ or during your stay regarding advice and directions for local amenities and attractions.
The Lowertown/ Byward Market neighbourhood is one of the older residential areas in Ottawa. You will notice a mix of rented and owned, new homes, old homes, nicer homes and fixer-uppers. The demographic is varied here as well, which I especially appreciate.
Please confirm approximate arrival time with me within 24 hours. Thanks!
