Character apartment in downtown Byward Market, close to all tourist destinations. Housed in a historic building built in 1891, enjoy a private bedroom and private bathroom as well as full kitchen, study and living room for your use.
Our bright and welcoming apartment will make the perfect base for your stay in Ottawa. It is conveniently located in Byward Market, and is less than a 15 minute walk to most major attractions. The apartment itself is well decorated and comfortable. Benjamin and I enjoy having guests and will offer suggestions of places to see or restaurants to eat at, but also enjoy conversing and getting to know our guests, if the guest so desires. We will do everything we can to make you as comfortable as possible during your stay with us in Ottawa!
Guests will have access to the entire apartment.
Interaction with Guests
Benjamin and I have both traveled somewhat extensively and enjoy interacting with our guests. Benjamin is originally from Germany and speaks German, English, French, Spanish, and a little Russian. Sonya speaks English, some Spanish, and a little French. Benjamin and I are in the apartment right next door if you have any questions!
Our neighbourhead is the heart of downtown Ottawa! We live in Byward Market, which is surrounded by historic buildings and the Cathedral. The Cathedral tolls it bells occasionally throughout the day adding to the quaint neighbourhood atmosphere. The shops in Byward Market are only 2 blocks away, close enough to walk to quickly, but far enough away for the apartment to be peaceful, surrounded by chirping birds and playful squirrels!
Our location is extremely central, making it possible to walk to most major tourist destinations. The Art Gallery is 1 block away; Byward Market is 2 blocks away; many embassies (including American) are less than a 5 minutes walk; the Rideau Canal is less than a 10 minute walk; Parliament is a 10 minute walk; and the Museum of Civilization is a short 15 minute walk over the bridge!
Other Things to Note
Benjamin and I may occasionally be in and out of the apartment, but we live right next door if you have any questions.
Unfortunately, we do not accept pets or children under 2 at this time. No smoking indoors or parties. Thank you for your understanding.
The hosts are very friendly and helpful/informative. The room is good for its price. My first experience on Airbnb turned out to be very pleasant and productive.
Sonya was very nice, she greeted us at the door and took us up to the lovely little space we were staying. They provided us with fresh linens, a nice, well lit area, and instructions should we have needed anything. They were very gracious hosts and we were glad to be able to stay there.
We had a great time by Sonya & Benjamin's flat ! Unfortunately, our arrival was delayed due to bus ; Benjamin & Sonya were really kind with us though we woke them up !
The flat is perfectly located for visiting, a few minutes of walking from everything ! We have never taken the bus or any other means of transportation !
We also had lot of space for the entire flat was ours during our stay !
Thank you for having us at your place Benjamin & Sonya !
We definitely recommend this flat :)
Benjamin and Sonya were incredible hosts, they had everything ready by the moment we arrived. We asked Benjamin to advice us on places to go and he was more than happy to show us on a map places to visit, eat or just have a coffee and great cake!
The location is EXCELLENT, is very central and close to everything we planned to see.
Overall, great location, fantastic hosts and an excellent time at Ottawa.
La ubicación del departamento es muy buena y la comunicación con Benjamín y Sonya también. Ellos son amigables.
Sin embargo la habitación no es muy grande y por eso no hay muchas comodidades. Otro punto negativo es que el lugar no es muy limpio.
I stayed for 1 week and enjoy the location and my hosts. I suggest for everyone to go.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
