I stayed at the Alexandra Hotel on July 26 to the 27 2014. I booked online and arrived at the hotel at 3:40 pm on July 26, 2014. I was informed of an extra $100.00 dollar charge because I was paying by debit which I did not have to give them. They therefore requested for me to leave my ID... More

In a great location close to Queen Street West. There is a lot to do nearby. We stayed here because we were going to a concert at Lee's Palace. The front desk staff was very friendly. The room was dated but nice. Had a fridge, stove, microwave, etc. Would be great if staying for longer than one night because it... More

On May 29 I phoned and booked two rooms, I was given confirmation numbers and they also emailed as requested the confirmation numbers. We went to check in and were told they had no record of the rooms being booked, yet one of the men there did admit to remembering the phone call. After a little while we were offered... More

We stayed here for 1 night. We had read the comments on tripadvisor and were a bit sceptical, but needed a cheap place to stay in Toronto. the hotel itself is in a back street with its own (paying) parking lot. their are safetycamera's which is a plus. Once inside you get the feeling of being in an appartmentblock instead... More

This hotel was great for us. There was a private parking lot (though you do have to pay for each day of parking) so we could walk to Kensington Market and Chinatown. The room was spacious with one full size bed and one twin bed in our room. Rooms are devoid of any decor. Wifi was good. The hotel is... More

I found the hotel to be clean and pleasant although not fancy. I would go there again as I thought the place gave good value for the price. the rooms were plain. the location was close to the hospital. I would have liked to have a coffee maker in the room without having to go get one from the office.

We stayed here for one night. We chose it for its close location to public transport and fairly close accessibility to the theater district by walking. The price was also very reasonable for downtown Toronto. My first impression was it was a nickel and dime operation. When checking in, I observed an interaction whereby a visitor of a guest staying... More

Hello, and thank you for the detailed review. Each room is equipped with a smoke detector (near the window) and a heat detector (near the door). Smoke from cooking can cause the smoke detector near the window to beep, but it is a safety measure mandated by the fire department to ensure guests know if there is smoke in the... More

CONS- not an actual hotel, I expected more like shampoo and conditioner. the room was not clean, there was hair and urine in the toilet seat when we arrived, stains and more hair on the bed sheets. PROS- excellent location for getting around downtown Toronto, and from desk lady was super nice and informative. the shower had good pressure. I'd... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm terribly sorry about the housekeeping problem with your room. We try our best to keep the rooms clean and we were not made aware of any recent problems. Generally our guests find our rooms clean, and most of our reviews reflect that. Thanks for making us aware of your concerns... More
