“Decent budget hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2007

This is a half-decent hotel. My room was quite big, clean, well equipped and was also good value. The breakfast was quite poor - self-service cereal and toast with polystyrene bowls and plastic cutlery. It's a good 15-20 minute walk into downtown Toronto which didn't bother me, but I wouldn't feel safe walking south on Jarvis Street towards the harbour late at night. Beware of the way they handle bookings. The website where I made my booking didn't charge up front but simply calculated an estimated fee. They make the point that the final fee could be different. Unfortunately, I witnessed two unhappy guests - one whose booking was lost and another who complained about not being refunded a security deposit. Altogether, I would recommend this hotel for those on a budget - but just make sure you have all your paperwork.

This is a good budget hotel in downtown Toronto. I paid $88.00 CAD. (taxes incl.) This included free internet, air conditioning, TV, hairdryer, and continental breakfast. The room wasn't in the best of shape and there was dust on the furniture. There were several cigarette burns on the carpet, markings on the wallpaper, and damage on the washroom ceiling, but the queen bed was comfortable.

Excellent budget hotel in downtown Toronto. Just minutes from Eaton Centre by walking and at great savings in room price. Hotel was clean and nice, but no elevator for the upper floors.
We had a very nice queen size room and was well taken care of by the staff. Even saved a gift that I mistakenly placed near the trash and the staff kept it and asked us about it. Very friendly and honest.
Would definately stay there again when next in Toronto.

  • Liked — Honesty, friendliness and cleanliness of the hotel
  • Disliked — no elevator
  • Tips/Secrets — If you don't mind a little walking, best place for downtown Toronto
  • Stayed December 2006, travelled as a couple

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2006

Stayed here five nights in April 2006. The hotel has only recently opened after refurbishment so everything is clean and new.
Great location in Downtown Toronto close to all the main attractions and shopping. We even got free parking in the side street with the use of a permit from the Hotel.
There is no bar, restaurant or other amenities in this hotel but at $80 CA (£40) including taxes this was one of the cheapest and best hotels I stayed in whilst touring Ontario. Some rooms have a fridge or computer; all rooms have TV, hairdryer, iron.
Only slight drawback some visitors might find off-putting is beggars on the street corners asking for money but just say no and walk on.
All in all excellent value for money.
