This is a tough place to review because it's both really good, and really not so great in some ways. The people are very nice, especially the German artist who lives in the basement and the manager/caretaker Monica. Unal the owner is a nice guy, a bit scatterbrained, who is genuinely responsive to the needs of his guests. The food for breakfast is fine- don't listen to the negative reviews about it. If you want fancier food you should be paying a higher rate. Which brings me to price- VERY reasonable. And the rooms are pleasant, the atmosphere is friendly. So what's not to like? That depends on how much you value your sleep. This is an old creaky house and you hear EVERYTHING. And I'm a sound sleeper. Did I mention the police and ambulance sirens wailing all through the night? You should do a little research on the neighborhood- you're surrounded by needle-exchanges, soup-kitchens, homeless shelters, the works... (that said, it's not a dangerous area, from all accounts, it's just overrun with vagrants.) Minor note- don't expect the internet to work- but every now and then it flashes on.

So... lots of noise, not the best part of the city. Would I recommend this b&b anyway... yes! Because it's friendly and very good value... if you're a stingy, light-seeping middle-aged complainiac stay away... if you're young, or young at heart and on a budget, this is the place for you.

Toronto Garden Inn is probably one of the most pleasant, friendly and affordable place I'have ever been in.
Our host was just as charming and efficient as possible... just a feeling of peace and trust...
A great place where you'll feel at home !!!!

thanks a lot.
I'll be back soon.

The house is located in a central place of Toronto. Most the things are walking distance.
The rooms and even the common bathrooms are very clean. I liked the lovely arranged living room with its piano, the old sofa and the chimney. The house with its people is a very cozy place.

Gardrn Inn is very nice! Because it locates in a quite street, I can enjoy nice sleep. What's more, it is only 15minits by walk from Eaton. Nice sleep and convenient transportation! Bus roots is just in the next street. My boyfriend and I lived in this B&B for nine days, we really enjoyed the time we spent in Toronto. The price for this B&B is reasonable. I like the decoration in side which is the old victoria age style. I think we will back to this B&B again. By the way, I love the Magnolia room most. I lived in Trillum room, which is private and bigger,is the second best.

I had a good experience at the Toronto Garden inn. The atmosphere was very peaceful. The rooms and bathrooms were kept really clean. I was quite amazed at how clean the bathrooms were. The hotel is well situated, the buses were like half a block away and the train station is also a couple of blocks away. There was easy access to the shopping malls.
There was also a wide variety of food items to choose from during breakfast.
My overall experience was good , the staff were polite and very helpful. I felt very much at home. I would recommend to anyone who needs a home away from home

This is a good place for a short term stay, as it is very close to stopping points that take you to the main avenues in the centre of toronto.
The food is healthy with good quality options, such as fresh fruit, eggs, juice, cereals, milk, vegetables, etc. The amenities are clean and spacious.
This is a good option for those looking for some privacy and willing to spend a bit more than in a hostel and less than the cheapest hotels in the area.
