Le Germain Hotel Ottawa

Ottawa, Canada

The hotel

The interiors of this urban sanctuary are high-design and high-spec, with bold yet beautiful décor, and gadget-stuffed guestrooms featuring free WiFi. Head outside and your surroundings are equally satisfying, with Ottawa’s must-visit checklist of sights in strolling distance, including ByWard Market, Parliament Hill, and Rideau Canal. And that also puts you near some of the city’s best shopping and dining spots. Taking its place in a complex that also houses a theatre, residences, an art gallery, and the hotel’s 24-hour gym, this boutique hotel now comes with its own dining venue too – the highly anticipated Norca Restaurant & Bar, where an already inspired Nordic menu is enhanced by farm-fresh regional ingredients, and where you can fill up on complimentary Continental breakfasts each morning.

We had a very nice stay! This hotel is very clean, calm, easy access, most of the staff speaks French and English. Everything looks brand new. Our room was fully wheelchair accessible. Very nice shower!

This is a really great hotel on the edge of Ottawa's Byward Market district. My entire experience was excellent, including the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, the quality of the room and amenities, and the ease of access to parking. The included breakfast was a lovely touch, but they had bacon only on the weekend -- everything else was the same on weekdays; seemed odd to me. I really have no major complaints about this property and would gladly stay again. However, parking is very expensive (nearly $40/day with tax), so be aware. Read less

Stayed overnight and got an accessible room. Lovely elegant decor and had a built-in/central radio that just made the ambience just right. Spacious washroom, and amenities in room included safe, bathrobe, slippers, Qtips and shoe mitt. Quiet room, comfy bed and pillows with a good view (11th floor). Felt quite safe outside at night.

Stayed overnight and got an accessible room. Lovely elegant decor and had a built-in/central radio that just made the ambience just right. Spacious washroom, and amenities in room included safe, bathrobe, slippers, Qtips and shoe mitt. Quiet room, comfy bed and pillows with a good view (11th floor). Felt quite safe outside at night. Concierge on site for help. Booking included breakfast in restaurant on 2nd floor. Nicely appointed with usual continental breakfast. My personal favourite is the granola and maple yogurt with a touch of honey (absolutely scrumptious!). Efficient table service. Just grab your breakfast and be seated to get cutlery/coffee service. 30 mins to airport by car. Convenient location and walkable to the Arts Centre. Would stay again. Read less

This was our third stay at the new Le Germain Hotel in Ottawa. It is just a very short walk to the Rideau Centre if shopping is your goal, and an easy walk to the many great restaurants in the Byward Market area. The staff are welcoming, and helpful. We have stayed in an "05" room each visit, which is a lovely corner room with a walk in shower.… Read more

We have stayed in an "05" room each visit, which is a lovely corner room with a walk in shower. The rooms are well equipped and the front desk is very accommodating if you forgot an essential such as a toothbrush! We were also very impressed with Norca, the hotel restaurant. A buffet breakfast is included with your stay and offers a good variety, and we also had dinner on two of our visits, which we really enjoyed. I highly recommend Le Germain if you are looking for a downtown Ottawa hotel! Read less
