I'm torn on whether to give the hotel lower or a higher star rating. Here's my overall assessment Good: Location( excellent really ) Price The average room was small, but not crowded for 1 person i found the bed comfy. No real amenities of any kind... Not even the usual " if you forgot something ..." The poor: The room,... More

Wonderful hotel at the best price in downtown. I paid 89 $ CAD/night for my husband and me (44$ each one) Is close to Union Station and the best places in downtown and if you're a returning guest they have a better rate, so take this in mind.I highly recommend them

The hotel is in a good location near the CN Tower but the room we had was small. Pathetic bed was a double bed, the air conditioning made noise and the table had to be moved for it to operate leaving no room to get off the bed. Most disappointing was the internet which I paid $10 plus tax kept... More

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for one night . We were going to a Raptors Game and loved how convenient this hotel was to the Air Canada Centre and the train station....

Because we are all human.....we have good days and bad days. After my glowing reviews of the Strathcona Hotel in Toronto, I was very surprised to have had a bad experience on the weekend. I believe, in all honesty, that some of our issues were the result of a huge hockey game (Montreal vs Toronto) in the city, that resulted... More

We were in Toronto for one night attending an event. We checked in early with no problems. Courteous people working the front desk. Went to our room. I was shocked at how small it was. The room was clean and had everything we needed. A bed and a washroom. I didn't feel extremely safe there at first considering our heads... More

This is a comfy little hotel in a really good location. Only down sides are that you have to pay for WiFi and there are building works going on which we were not told about before arrival. Comfy bed and clean rooms.

Hi AC030185 Thank you for your feedback. We hope you enjoyed the hospitality and sights are beautiful city has to offer. As a practice we only charge for internet because we do not want to incorporate the charges into our room rate as that would not be fair to non- internet users. As you may be aware that the area...

Connecting flight with Porter was cancelled and was put up in this hotel for covered by the airline. Average room, downtown, and space is limited, rooms were small. Average rooms trying to be upscale, and more 'classed' up if you will. Nothing stuck out as bad, it was just overall good, not great, not bad.

The hotel is only minutes away from the train station and close to the theaters and multiple restaurants and bars. The rooms are small but very clean. Wifi costs $6 per day. Ideal location especially for travellers using public transportation.
