Well located right in front lots and nice restaurants and Metro Supermarket. Three steps to Major Queend St and CN Tower. Rooms are nice, spacious, nice bathroom but be sure to find yourself a non mold/smoking smell room. Also don't trust on wake up calls - they just don't happen...

This hotel is an embarrassment for any Canadian that suggests this tired old barn of a hotel to international guests. Normally Novohotel is reliable for quality, but this location is ten years over due for a total Reno. My room stinks of some perfumed order mask and the corridor has an equally pungent and just as repulsive but different Oder.... More

The thing that saved the day was the location from which we could walk to St Laurence Market, to the harbor and ferry terminal and to eating choices. The parking was expensive but the good news was that we had convenient in-out privileges without waiting for a valet and could remain parked until midnight of our check-out day. Fortunately we...

We stayed here with our 9 year old son at the beginning of an 11 day holiday to Ontario. It is ideally situated and is within easy walking distance of the CN tower, Ferry to Central Island etc. we used the tubes and buses and these can be accessed close by. Our room was large with 2 queen sized beds,... More

This hotel has a very good location with walking distance to a lot of Toronto attractions. It is highly affordable, very good value for money, and they serve a surprisingly good breakfast! We had a good night's sleep with little noise despite our window facing the street. Our room was a bit dated, but overall we had a very pleasant... More

We decided to stay at the Novotel due to it's location, cost and my past Novotel experiences in Beijing and Korea. I booked a regular room and we were surprised when we arrived to learn we had been upgraded to an executive room. Honestly I'm not sure what makes a room executive... the Nespresso machine? The desk? I don't know!... More

The Hotel is in great location. There are loads of restaurants in the surrounding area including the Spaghetti Factory right outside. Despite this we heard no noise at all in the 3 nights we stayed. Younge Street is 2 streets away so its a really simple 10 minute walk to the Eaton Centre and the main tourist centre. The room... More
