Toronto, Canada
Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

Clean but outdated furniture. Location is central enough - close to Yorkville area. Customer service were very pleasant. Price was fairly steep at $179 given the minimal amenities and decor (or lack there of).

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

This hotel is located downtown Toronto in a quality part of the city. The hotel entrance could perhaps be freshened up a bit but once you are in the accommodation, it is superb. Rooms are VERY large, as is the bed, and there is absolutely no complaint about the rooms -- there is even a coffee machine which is a...

Having experienced my first hotel in Canada after coming from a history of high-end hotel stays in the Arabian Gulf, the cultural shock was immense. Functional hotel with basic amenities and close to subway. Dated room that nevertheless has its charm. Very basic breakfast that will get you hungry rather than full.

The employees were very kind with us. We had a upgrade in our booking, the new bedroom was bigger but the heating didn't work, the bedroom was very cold even if we change the thermostat. The breakfast was very simple but the worst was the "dining room"; hasn't places enough for all guests. So, just for a few nights it's...

Thank you for your feedback. Glad to hear the employees were kind and of good service. Sorry to hear your room was not warm enough.

I've stayed at this hotel 7+ times in the past year and its honestly a great hotel for the cost; especially in such a nice area of Toronto. The staff is always friendly, I've been upgrading multiple times when they had better rooms available. They have also been very accommodating with early checks in in the past. I've stayed in...

Stayed at this hotel one weekend and I was surprised that the noise from the busy street outside was not to be heard in the room. I'm an easy sleeper and wakes up for no reason. I had to check into a new room because there was something wrong with the sink in my first room. It was no trouble...

The hotel is run-down and dirty. The hallways are not maintained, the walls paper thin, the rooms are old and dingy. The comforter on our bed reeked of body odor. And only a small sheet to cover ourselves after we threw the comforter off. Very VERY disappointing. We realize that at 85$ a night with groupon that this was a...

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your room. Some rooms located mid hallway face the building next door which can be dark at times. Best to book a Business Room which are bright cityview rooms.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
