From outside it looked cozy - inside is a different story. Breakfast room is in the cellar - therefore we preferred to breakfast external. In the room was no controller for the AC - so it was noisy and too cold at night. Besides that, it was expensive - we moved to radisson waterfront at the same prize.

I found this hotel through various websites and booked it blindly. The accomodation wasn't cheap and cost quite a bit for the 2 weeks I stayed there (i'm sure you could book an upmarket hotel for the same price). However, saying this the personal service we recieved was second to none. It was brilliant - the staff were so attentative... More

I have never had nightmare until i stayed in Amabassador Inn.At first sight,the house was like jail.It was simply built by bricks,and there was a kind of bad smell when I got into the Inn. lots of garbage men,drug dealers and hookers around that area,especially at night,and that makes you nervous every second. The advertising is misleaded,and the photos of... More

The advertising is very misleading, this is a bargain basement place in a rather bad area with the bare minimum in room amenities. Unfortunately the price does not reflect the level. The use of the word "luxurious" is incorrect by anyone's standards. I had a sinking feeling as soon as I arrived--the front is run down with broken steps and... More

We stayed at the Ambassador in last February. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Upon arrival due to some booking confusion, they kindly upgraded our room to one of the larger nicer rooms at the same discounted price (February appears to be the slow season). The Ambassador Inn has been very expertly remodeled and the rooms are charming especially... More

Okay...I'm not sure where everybody else stayed, but our experience was not that great. First, the room was WAY over-priced. Second, the breakfast was disgusting - I've never had greasier french toast in my life. There were only two cereals to choose from and 3 croissants. From the outside, the place looked like a dump - no visible signage...and why... More

We have stayed here three times so far. What we like best is the homey feeling. Every time we come back, it feels like home coming. You will have to stay here to know what we are talking about. Take a look at “our room” – Room #303. Isn’t it cute? By the way, Ambassador Inn’s room rates are from... More

I travelled and stayed in many B&B but staying here felt right at home.Your place is warm, Clean, (your B&B were the cleanest in Toronto) and very comfortable. Having internet access was an added benefit. We will miss the great breakfast, the friendly staff and we will definitely stay here whenever we come to Toronto. We will recommend our friends... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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.
