PLEASE NOTE: This condo is ideal for large groups that would prefer to stay in one place rather than 3, 4, 5, or 6 hotel rooms.

The living/dining room, kitchen, and terrace are not able to accommodate the entire group of 8 people at one time. If your group plans to spend their days enjoying the city or attending meetings and using the condo for sleeping and light meals, this condo is ideal.

Great apartment, Close to all amenities

  • 5 of 5

A small well-kept apartment in a renovated Old Victorian home very close to all amenities at a reasonable walking distance to the ByWard market and Parliament Hill. This apartment is immaculate. The front two bedrooms are of generous size and fully equipped, bonus air-conditioners in every room! Bedding and towels were lovely. The bathroom and powder room are perfect. The common spaces (kitchen and LR) were a tight-squeeze for our group of 8, but we made it work. Unfortunately, since we cooked all our meals, we did set off the smoke detector, twice (6:30am the first time - sorry to other tenants) as there is no rangehood fan over the stove.The on-site laundry was a very nice touch indeed. No complaints from us. A great stay. All the little details have been well thought out and if you aren't sure what the house rules are, there are little reminder notes unobtrusively placed throughout the house (garbage/recycling, check out tasks, etc). Communication with the owner was beyond exemplary and thorough. Very appreciated. Thank you.

Disappointing stay.

  • 2 of 5

Stayed at this condo in July for two nights.

It was not what I expected. On a very noisy street but had convenient bus service at the door.

I expected a well stocked kitchen with simple supplies of sugar, dishwasher pucks, gmarbage bags. However, there is a convenient store across the street.

Owner's Response: This condo is filled with over 15 different spices, salt, pepper, olive oil, cooking oil, balsamic vinegar, white vinegar, coffee, tea, sugar, sweetener, flour, baking soda, rice, pasta, garbage bags, tea towels, dush cloths, dishwashing soap, dishwasher pucks, and is sticked with so msmy pots, pamns, dishes, glasses, cutlery, cutting bosrdc serving bowls, cuttibg boards, roasting pans, the bathroom I offer shampoo, conditioner, liquid soap, Q-tips, towels, hand towels, face the laundry area I provide laundry pucks, stain remover and dryer sheets. Why this gyest fwlt the apartment was not well stocked is a mystery. The street is busy but as past guests have pointed out, once in the apartment the noise is faint. The advantage to the location is it is within walking distance to all amenities and tourist areas. My previoys guests have comnented iften tgat this is the best stocked apartment they have ever rented.

Close to everything!

My family and I came to Ottawa for a family member's wedding and I rented two units in the building. There were 8 adults and 4 kids between the two units and all of us were very comfortable. There were tons of games/toys for the kids to use while in the unit, but the best part about the property was the proximity to downtown. We were able to walk everywhere! Also, the manager of the building was very helpful. The last day of our visit, it was pouring rain, and I did not have an umbrella. The manager left two umbrellas outside the door of our unit for us to use so that we didn't lose a day because of the weather. I would recommend this property to other vrbo travelers. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing my home for your stay in downtown Ottawa. The location is convenient for getting around Ottawa easily. I am glad that you found it to be that way for your large group. It is difficult to pack for children so that is why I have added toys, games and books for all ages. I am pleased that your family found benefit to them being there. Come again!

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that my guest enjoyed his stay at my 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom downtown Ottawa condo. Ed had a large group (8) and they told me that they found the size of the condo to be comfortable for all, especially the 3 large queen bedrooms. All of them felt comfortable walking to the tourist attractions that are a short jaunt away~~~Parliament Hill, Rideau canal, Byward market...Ed is planning a return for this summer to enjoy Ottawa in a completely different way...see you soon!

Great Family memories!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rideau Mews! The apartment was clean and well stocked, just like the photos on the web site. Very centrally located to most of the Ottawa attractions. The trip was our Christmas gift to our 6 children and we wanted to skate the canal. We had a very mild winter, however, God gave us a special gift by having the canal open the day after we arrived in Ottawa! So thankful! The only reason I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 , is because we had trouble with the Netflix account. it wasn't loading properly. The movie would stop and reload every 3-4 minutes. That might have been a Netflix problem, I don't know. Would we stay at Rideau Mews again? Absolutely!

Owner's Response: This trip was very special for this family. We communicated for 2 months prior on many occasions as the parents wanted this experience to be perfect for their family. I was pleased to answer their questions leading up to their arrival. When they arrived, I decided to read constant updates of the skating conditions on the famous Rideau canal so that if it opened unexpectedly I could inform the family immediately. I was so happy for them that I was able to deliver the exciting news by text at 6:30 am the day after their arrival (and their last day in Ottawa so it was their only chance). They were skating shortly therafter and loved the experience (the canal isin close proximity to the condo ). I did receive a call from the husband on the Saturday night about the Netflix. I called Netflix immediately and I was informed it was their service that was having an issue. I advised the husband of this and told him how to reboot the system so that it would be ready as soon as Netflix fixed the issue. I know from my own personal experience that Netflix was not working for about 2 hours, however, I also provide a very extensive cable package, with appropriate programming for children too, so that the family would have another source of entertainment. I also include a basket of toys for all ages, plus games, dvd movies, books, magazines... I love that this family enjoyed their experience so much that they want to make it an annual experience and they have already told me they will be staying again next year. It can't get better than that for a host. .
