This hotel is in a great location, away from noise and general bustle of he city. We walked everywhere ! The staff are very helpful and polite.

We where two in one room which offered two queen sized beds. For a week trip into Toronto the hotel was perfect due to its location and short distance to the subway. The hotel offers breakfast at approx. 15$ but you should visit coras at the opposite which offers a better breakfast for the same pricing. Also nearby are several... More

Basic room with 2 double beds. Clean linens and comfortable sized bathroom. Nothing fancy but the price was fair given the location and the breakfast included. Breakfast had enough variety and the coffee was actually really good!

We stayed here 3 nights to explore Toronto. The hotel is located downtown so is excellent to getting around the centre of Toronto. We arrived by car so the GPS/SatNav was useful in finding it. Across the road is a soup kitchen for homeless, but we didn't have much problem with anyone. A park to one side also seems to... More

Great service and a clean and quiet room so hits the critical points. Morning breakfast very satisfying. Reception made every effort to ensure our satisfaction. Convenient parking on site or close by. Looking a little tired but interior designer display in lobby promises great days ahead. We will be back !

The hotel is not all that fancy, but the rates are reasonable and the rooms are quite comfortable. Very quiet, too, for a downtown Toronto hotel. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and fresh, and the real task is avoiding eating too much. Very good coffee, too. Free newspapers, and everything is kept clean and tidy.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
