Room dark, only one light working in a bar of 4 in tiny living area. Had booked a room with 2 double beds, got one bed and either a pull... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights as we headed down to Toronto early from Orillia. The hotel itself was under renovation so the outside was masked with wooden boards covered in graffiti. It didn't look very appealing but it was understandable given the work they were clearly doing. We had originally booked a twin suite but as that wasn't... More

I chose Urban Living as an inexpensive option for a week long stay in Toronto while attending a course on one of the coldest weeks this winter. I was upgraded without request or additional charge. Room is fully equipped (dishes, dish soap, small appliances etc) and very clean. Bathroom was small but plenty of hot water.Public transport was very convenient... More

We stayed at this facility for four nights. Granted, as others have said, the room is rather cramped and the skylight in the bedroom hampered your ability to sleep in and without a real window, the room got a bit stuffy. The bathroom was particularly small--two people could not fit in it at the same time! Plus I have never... More

hard to find as there are shops below and they are doing renovations but the location is great and the room was clean with a kitchenette it is like a university dorm room so expect that but it was dirt cheap and we'd stay there again great location if you are going to the amphitheatre. Free parking included which makes... More

Great location if you want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the chain hotels. Great little restaurants and cafes. We had an end suite with windows in each of the bedrooms. Public transit is very accessible from this location.

We ended up with this hotel via Hotwire and was a good choice if you only want to save money. It was in a great location - only a 30 minute walk to downtown, close to transit. We stayed for 4 nights. It had a tiny kitchenette. It was very small and cramped and the only window was a sky... More

We liked this location! It is in a real neighborhood ("Little Italy"/"Little Portugal") and close to BMO field, parks, and lots of small bistros, grocery stores, etc. Not far from "Chinatown" and the AGO. We had a two-bedroom suite with a kitchenette and it served our small family's needs very well. We found it clean and it came with all... More

This suite was in a great location, about 30 minute walk to downtown. It was nice having a kitchenette, but it made for a small, cramped space. Also, the only windown was a skylight, so we were a bit uncomfortable with how you would get out in a fire or emergency situation. Thank goodness that was not necessary. I read... More
