    Fun&Interesting

    Very interesting & fun experience. Great location within easy walking distance to Parliament, museums, shopping, great restaurants. Eerily interesting, it feels like a jail, & the history is rather creepy, but great use for an awesome historic building. Staff was excellent, breakfast good, people from all over the world. I came for one night, stayed for two!

    Remember: It's a JAIL, not a HOTEL.

    What a wonderful experience! Sleeping in a REAL JAIL for three days was something I won't ever forget! It was so amazing to see how prisoners lived prior to 1970 in the Canadian Penal system.

    Gosh, there isn't much you can say negativity about this place -- except, perhaps, it would have been nice to have two pillows instead of one -- but it's JAIL, remember!?! :-)
