Ottawa has an interesting mix of business and city living on its very safe core downtown.
Among Banks, Embassies and Museums there are lots of new and older residential buildings what makes it a very cosmopolitan National Capital with its ethnicity reflected on diversity array of eateries.
For a guest it is wonderful to have it all at walking distance, one can even cross the Ottawa river to go to Quebec side by foot from our address!
Few blocks South of the Parliament,
West of the Canal, East of Chinatown
Some blocks North of the Greyhound bus Central Station, located on Catherine Street.
Close to Ottawa River and Quebec Province is just across the river.

Lovely apartment! Everything shown in the pictures are 100% accurate, they really did a great job designing this place. Jim was a great host, giving my girlfriend and I a personal tour of the space when we arrived. He was also very communicative, always responding to our emails within an hour. He even allowed us to alter our check in/out times to accommodate for our train departure and arrival times!
The apartment is on the western end of the downtown core, about a 15-20 minute walk from Parliament Hill and Byward Market, so if you plan to frequent those areas be prepared to go for a bit of a trek. Otherwise, it is only a 5 minute walk from great restaurants and bars on Bank St. (go to Bread and Sons Bakery, love that place).
Definitely would recommend!
I found the flat exactly as described, and the hosts coul dnot have been more accommodating. They were fast in responding to any queries and sorted out various minor issues in no time. I can recommend this flat whole-heartedly.
Jim and Maria were very communicative and easy to get a hold of. I was met at the building and shown, with great care, all of the things I would need to know for my stay. They listing is very cute, clean, bright and comfortable - exactly as listed. The neighborhood is okay - clean and safe but not much to do in the immediate area... though parliament etc. is only about a 20-30 minute walk... It would be a great place to stay in the summer when walking is easier and warmer.
Our experience at Maria and Jim's was perfect. Location was central to so much and the apartment itself was exactly as advertised (and ideal for our needs). When we arrived Jim was very helpful and thorough making sure we were comfortable (he even helped with our many bags!:)
Overall, a great experience. Would certainly recommend.
Wonderful cozy condo , looks exactly the pictures, would definitely stay again
The listing is very accurate - as described. :)
a) Location - was perfect - close to downtown and other tourist attractions.
b) Hosts - Jim made us feel very welcome. They had snacks, tea and coffee ready for us. They also had toiletries like toothpaste, shower gel, bath salts etc. Jim and Maria were easily reachable and provided clear, accurate information in a timely manner.
c) Gym, Sauna, Whirlpool - The place was just perfect, warm, cozy. We used the gym (and the Sauna) a couple of times which was a huge plus. We enjoyed the bath/whirlpool as well.
d) Overall - We really loved our stay here and would highly recommend it.
Nice apartment, cute decor, hosts were very communicative. Although the weather was freezing we still managed to walk to almost all of our tourist destinations (museums, parliament, etc). Place was a little cold upon arrival so we had to wait a bit once we turned up the heat. Would stay here again.

Welcome to the National Capital of Canada, our beautiful Ottawa!!!
Our favourite hobbies now are gardening in summer and skiing when there is snow.
We love to entertain in all seasons and to attend theater evenings, concerts and restaurants -that is why our condos are so well located!!! So close to all Ottawa major attractions, from Parliament Hill to Dows Lake and our home is in the country side -sort of- in a 3 acres property in the West end, 30 minutes drive, looking over a valley, with lots of gardens, some natural and wild too, and partial on the Alvar ecosystem - a natural formation very dry and rocky.
When we travel, we also prefer location, location, location. Second only by spotless clean accomodations. A good bed, good shower, pillows and best food. We travelled extensively by now to nearly all continents - by train, car, air or sea.

AirBnB is a new experience for us, who love trying new paths, and we look forward to welcoming you!!!
To those that can stay in our home in a sort of rural environment, near Kanata, in the West of Hwy 417, we are proud of sharing our gardens, when the season allows. One should at least try!!!
