Positive Reviews


Terrific central location

This was, without a doubt, what guests most appreciated about the apartments. They mentioned that they were very central, and it was a short walk, or sometimes taxi ride, to any spot in downtown Ottawa they really cared to visit.


Apartments are a good size

Guests were in complete agreement that the apartments were a very good size. It didn't seem to matter what kind of unit was booked, all guests felt that they had enough space for all the members of their party, with no overcrowding reported.


Very clean on check in

Pretty much all guests were quite happy with the state of their apartment on check in. They felt that it had been properly cleaned, rather than just dusted or wiped here and there.

Negative Reviews


Rooms in need of a refresh

Guests felt that the rooms didn't really live up to the photos in the marketing materials. A long time had clearly passed since those photos were taken, with guests now saying the apartments, and especially the furniture in them, were looking a little down at heel. New furniture and a quick refresh was said to be in order.


Extra fees and hidden charges

This was perhaps the most common complaint, and without a doubt the most serious. A very large number of guests reported that not only were there incidental charges for all sorts of things they were not expecting, but that their credit card was charged more than they had agreed to. This was upsetting, to say the least, and left a very sour taste in many guests' mouths.


No luggage storage

A remarkable number of guests were upset that there was no facility onsite to store bags for a couple of hours after checking out.
