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.

The decor, the furniture, the amazingly helpful and polite (and wonderful cook!) and innkeeper made for a very pleasant anniversary getaway for myself and my husband. We enjoyed the Bewdley room so much we have decided to make it an annual tradition. Pimbletts is an excellent

Being retired, I travel 5 months a year, so I seek out sensible places of character, in central locations. And B&B's like Pimblett's are perfect for getting local and current insight so wasted tourist-time is minimised Geoffrey Pimblett is the perfect and genial host,

The owner was friendly and accomodating (we booked only one day in advance) to my husband and myself during our stay - he gave interesting historical facts and useful advice about the area (including dining, attractions and transportation). We found the pets of the B & B to be

I was in Toronto for a business trip and found this jem of a bed and breakfast. Located just off the Yonge Subway line (College station) and a 5 min streetcar ride the location of this bnb was close to my meetings and central to everything that I wanted to see. When I was doing

If you are looking for me to sum this up in one word - 'Grubby' would be the one. As soon as the door opened the greeting from John worried us. He stood there in his stained t-shirt and allowed us to move our cases into the very cluttered 'lounge' whilst they prepared our room.

Response from sp00kyt00, owner at Pimblett's Downtown Toronto B&B
Responded Nov. 27, 2008
We are not a Hotel of Victorian Splendor, we advertise ourselves as fun affordable and well located. Clean rooms, updated bathrooms and good hospitality. We are deeply sorry that this guest was disappointed with our Toronto Bed and Breakfast. Our bed and breakfast is a home, lived in by Geoffrey the owner, his dog and cat, also a live in housekeeper Mr. Lawrence who works relentlessly keeping the place up to scratch and our breakfast cook John who is very likable always helpful and ready to tell a story . I almost forgot to mention 'Valentina' our friendly resident Ghost. Known to frequent the Agatha Christie Room We accommodate just over a thousand guests each year; with almost a 100% satisfaction and many return guest that often become friends. Guest generally has a pre-conceived idea of our home from our Web site and are generally not disappointed In this instance it is obvious that the guest had a totally different idea of what to expect. Normally Geoffrey would be at the door to great the guest, unfortunately on this occasion he was not there. They arrived early in the morning during breakfast time. John opened the door in his T-shirt from cooking breakfast for 20 people, It was to early for the room to be ready and he let them leave their bags in the Library with some guidance as to what to see in the neighborhood. and an idea when their rooms would be ready. John is such a dear and well liked, he has his own e-mail friends made through the bed and breakfast. We do take a deposit upon making the booking in order to secure the reservation. On the few occasions that people were obviously disappointed a full refund is always offered with recommendation of other establishments that may be more to their liking. On this occasion, no mention of their discomfort was made. A full refund was given to last unhappy guests, who gave us a bad review even though they did not even check in since they did not like the dog. They were gracious enough to mention this in their scathing review. Once again we apologies to this particular party from the UK, and their traveling companions. For just $105 ca. a night they were soon on their way, hopefully to a place that would be more suited. Sincerely, Geoffrey Pimblett, Mr. Lawrence, John the cook, Albert the dog and Tiddles the resident pussy. Sorry...... almost forgot Valentina the ghost.

The Agatha Christie Room
open kitchen
"The Agatha Christie room has it's own bathroom, and Valentina the ghost will delight you (if she hasn't already crossed over)"
"Ask for the room at the top, it's like having your own self contained apartment."
"A room in different hotel would be better."
"Our room at the back was probably quieter than those facing the street."
"not recommended if you have to rise early."
