Charming and Central

Apartment - Private room · Saint Andrew Street, Ottawa, ON K1N 5E8, Canada

A tiny and charmingly spartan room in a flat at the heart of Ottawa. Ideal for US Visa Runs and going to the National Gallery.

The Space

The two bedroom flat is on the second floor of a heritage duplex. Hardwood floors, old guillotine windows, front balcony from which you can catch a glimpse of the National Art Gallery all add to the charm. Being around the corner from the market, Rideau Canal and most major tourist attractions makes the location ideal for travellers!
*** This listing is for a 7.5' x 10' room with a loft bed for one guest. The loft bed with twin size mattress is good for persons up to ~1.85 m/6'1" tall. Should you be taller, or are afraid of heights for that matter, the mattress can be set on the floor without compromising sleeping comfort.***

Guest Access

As guest, you will have access to the spare room with loftbed, as well as the kitchen, bathroom, living room and balcony.

Interaction with Guests

I can be available on most evenings and weekends to chat, give travel advice, have coffee on the front balcony, etc.

The Neighborhood

I really love living in this area as it is central and very well provisioned with great food shops etc.
The west side where I live is somewhat bobo, and the vistas of Parliament are quite magnificent. The east side is quite multicultural and leads to Beechwood and Vanier.

Getting around

The neighbourhood is possibly the most walkable in the City and Rideau Centre, the largest transit node in the city, is about a 5 minute walk from here.

Other Things to Note

Ideal for US Visa Runs and going to the National Gallery.
Sorry, but I do not have a parking space.

  • Andrew is a great host, very relaxed and accommodating, and his place is well located.

  • I had a great stay at this apartment. It was quiet and had all of the things I was looking for! Andrew is a great host and made it very easy to stay in Ottawa! I highly recommend this place not only for the location and price, but also because of the comfort and great host!

  • I came for a business trip so didn't think I would get to see that much if Ottawa in my two days, but the amazing location of Andrews place meant that I got to see the Gallery, and by ward market which has some great restaurants and bars. Andrew was an excellent host, really helpful and friendly and was able to help suggest things for me to do.

  • Andrew was great to stay with- he was very nice and clear in arranging the booking and to talk with. He is an interesting and knowledgeable person who I found easy to relate with. His apartment reminds me of many in Montreal, with warm character and it was clean and well organized. The room is cozy, but with the layout of the place it was very comfortable. I don't think that there is a better location in Ottawa! It's calm, and nice - at just the right distance a few blocks from the byward market bustle and right near most attractions in the city. Andrew was very helpful in welcoming me on short notice, and I would certainly recommend staying in this room in his apartment.

  • The place was quite nice - nicer than the pictures made it seems actually. The location was great. Andrew was polite and accommodating. I'm over 6'2 and the bed was fine for me. I would recommend this apt.

    March 2014
  • Andrew made it a extremely easy process to book and use his space. He checked in regularly to ensure all of the details were in order. His place was very clean and simple to get to. The location is excellent! Right next to the Market and a short walking distance to downtown and main attractions.

    March 2014
  • Andrew is a nice, friendly guy, the house is clean, quiet, and in a PERFECT location (steps away from the National Gallery, minutes from Parliament, etc), and at an affordable price.... What more could you ask for?

    February 2014
  • Andrew is a great host. He is attentive to your needs and happy to answer any questions you may have about the town, what to see, and how to move about it. The apartment is clean and cozy and adequate to the task. The location of the apartment is fantastic; within walking distance to cafes, market, National Gallery, etc. as well as major metro bus stations. I would very much recommend staying if you're coming to Ottawa.

    February 2014
  • Andrew is the warmest and chillest (no pun intended) of hosts out there. Friendly, accommodating, and a sweetheart to boot.
