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.

Great place to stay if you want to be in the heart of downtown. Close to restaurants, transit and shopping. Clean rooms with friendly staff. Offers a hospital rate if needed. Good value for money. ..........

I chose this more for its 2.5 star review than it's super low price. Get the real urban experience, and be right in the village! I had a key/entry emergency Sunday at midnight and my call got answered

If you are into a very typical Ontario experience this place is the real deal. Just like my grandmas house, Victoria’s is a multi story guest house with old school style. Room was nice and clean, bathroom too. No attendant when we arrived or left.

HI there. We do have an iron and ironing board guests can use. If the need arises when the staff are not there, the iron is inside a cabinet on our lower level and the ironing board is next to it! Thanks for your interest!

Hello. I am eagerly anticipating my four-night stay at Victoria's Mansion Guest House this coming November. I first found your lovely in on a third-party website other than TripAdvisor, but after speaking with a kind person at your front desk -- by phone -- I was encouraged to book directly with your inn. I am so happy that I followed that advice as the aforementioned OTA (it was not TripAdvisor) has made a few too many mistakes with my reservations in the recent past. Anyhow, the questions that I have involve the hotel room where I will be staying as well as the surrounding area. I am quite excited, so reading all of your replies only will make me more so! These questions are mainly for hotel staff, but, of course, if past guests (who have stayed at your inn since the autumn of 2016) can provide helpful info, I would appreciate their input as well. OK, here goes: 1) In my single-bed room, I believe there to be a microwave oven (please confirm this--thanks), but are there also a small fridge and sink (for cleaning utensils)? If there is no fridge, that will mean that I would not be able to bring back goodies from St. Lawrence Market: desserts to keep cool/cold over a few days and savory dishes to microwave later in the day or the next day. 2) Would I be permitted to clean utensils in the bathroom sink *if* there is no other sink? 3) Do only the larger rooms (double bed, queen bed) have a washing machine? 4) Is there at least one dry-cleaning establishment nearby? If so, is it located on Church Street, Yonge Street or elsewhere? 5) While using Google Maps (gotta love it!), I believe I saw a pizzeria on Gloucester, close to Yonge Street? Were my eyes deceiving me, or is it really there? What is the name of the pizzeria? (I love pizza, and it would be great to try out the pizza there.) 6) I am a walker (not in a Walking Dead kinda way ... lol). Is it a nice, leisurely walk from 68 Gloucester to Yonge & Dundas square? This would be without luggage, just my day pack (knapsack). On my first full day -- whether snow or none -- I really will need to walk to the Front Street West area because I'll need to go to a bank to break down/break up my large Canadian bills (my bank gives only a few small bills). After I handle the bank business, I'll want to go to Union Station (thus, why I plan to go to a bank downtown) to obtain all kinds of brochures for touring Ontario province and specifically Toronto. After that, I expect to explore St. Lawrence Market and purchase brekkie or lunch there before heading to the (or a) boarding location for the Hop On/Hop Off tour bus. Speaking of which ... 7) Does anyone know if there is a boarding location for the Hop On/Hop Off tour bus near or at Union Station? In advance, I thank you all!
Hi there. Thanks for your interest and I will do my best to answer your questions! I know you sent this yesterday so I hope it's not too late-for the fastest answers to these and any other questions you could call us directly at 416 921-4625 between 10:00 am - 6:00 pm. Here goes: 1) yes all of our rooms have microwave, small fridge, coffee maker, and utensils 2) yes certainly you could clean up any dishes in the bathroom sink; cleaning soaps, etc. are supplied 3) none of our rooms have laundry facilities en suite; we have coin operated laundry machines in the basement which you are welcome to use after hours or when we are not using them; we do not supply laundry detergent though--you would need to get that yourself 4) yes there are several dry-cleaners in the area--I think the closest one is just down the street from us on Church 5) I think the pizza place you are referring to is Olympic 76 and it is just steps down the street from us! It's been there a very long time and has an excellent reputation! 6) yes it is a nice leisurely walk to Yonge/Dundas Square; walking to Front Street however might be a challenge unless you were really into walking! You are right on the subway line though which takes you Union Station, which is on Front Street; there are plenty of banks on Yonge on your way to Dundas though--unless it's a specific branch you need on Front 7) there are several tour bus options in the city--and as we are very close to Yonge, a lot of them stop there; in the lobby we also have various "tour" information available; I don't know specifically what is at Union but I am sure there must be some sort of tour bus--and definitely there will be information, Hope that helps--and as I said--for more timely answers just give us a call 10-6! Best, Kathy

You would need to email the hotel and they will tell you the necessary codes and ways to get in prior to your arrival to Toronto.

Is parking available on site? What is the cost?
Yes. You need to let them know ahead of time. I think it was $10/day. it is directLynn behind the building.

"Look at pics, choose your room. Mined smelled a little, but it was inexpensive. trade-off"
"We were on the ground floor since there are no elevators but several steps to access the front door with heavy luggage."
"Avoid room 22"
"Any room not on the first floor, but remember this hotel is not in a salubrious neighborhood."
"Budget travellers can save by booking a room in the basement or on the first floor. Prices rise when you are on the second or third floors."
