I think this is a diamond in the ruff. The price is good, and the location is very central to everything. The Bloor subway station is only steps town the west side of the street heading south. Its great if your going to one of the hospitals, if your seeing a play downtown, or just want to explore Younge St.... More

I was lucky to get a room at the back (quiet, with some natural light). The room was unusually large and a bit oddly-shaped.... More

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry you did not enjoy the breakfast. We did have a large student group in house and as you mentioned, space in the breakfast room can be challenging. We will be redeveloping the property in the near future which will be addressing the size and quality of the building. I was glad to hear... More

Thank you for your response. My apologies that you did not feel safe in this area as it is one of the best neighborhoods in the city. We should have advised you the parking rate was increasing Jan 1. I will certainly share your comments with housekeeping. Your feedback is appreciated. More
