Stayed here for five days.. Luckily only spent a small amount of time in the room... The first night noticed that the room on the third floor was EXTREMELY cold!! The manager never even turned the heat on.. Had to give us a portable heater to plug in.... Which of course was unsafe to leave turned on while gone all... More

This victorian B&B needs a lot of TLC to bring the aura of age and neglect back to stately faded beauty and stepping through the front door immediately makes a lie of Jarvis House's immaculately maintained claim. Climbing the winding staircase to the first floor the first thing you notice are the dirty scuffed walls in dire need of a... More

We wanted to rectify some of the negative comments written on here regarding the owner of Jarvis House. Our experience was nothing but positive, but having said that, we went there expecting nothing but were pleasantly surprised. Erica was friendly, helpful, and never stopped smiling. We stayed in room 3 on the very top floor. It was a steep climb... More

price is right and location is central, the owner is Chinese but speaks Japanese and attracts similar clientele. Carpet is faded and stained but the room is clean. Breakfast not bad in the basement every morning. WILL charge you if you overstay an hour

We stayed here for 4 nights during the Toronto Film Festival. The house looks really worn-out on the outside, so I wasn't really sure what to expect... As soon as we arrived, the host, Erica (Asian and really friendly women) showed us the room under the roof. The room was small, had two beds and a very small bathroom with... More

We had high hopes for the Jarvis House, nicely located in the downtown of Toronto, but the manager, Ekika, ruined our experience. First, she ignored our reservation and moved us from the ground floor room I had reserved due to a knee problem, and put us upstairs in a more expensive room, and then tried to charge us $20/night more...

Genuine hospitality, a spotless comfortable room with well appointed ensuite, downtown overnight parking for an unheard-of price... I'll be back. The fact that a bit of patience was required for the hot water to climb its way to the third floor of this wonderful old house only added to the charm! Jarvis House added a very nice change of pace... More

We stayed this past fall in room 3 I believe (larger room on main floor). Rooms are extremely basic and the showers definitely aren't meant for an above average sized person (teeny tiny stalls!), but for the location, you can't beat the price. We were able to walk absolutely everywhere from here and saved tons on cabs. It's on a... More
