We have stayed at this hotel before and we enjoy it. Great location, friendly staff,clean.The only thing we were a little bit dissapointed was with the breakfast, very basic but that is a small detail. The television is awesome , a nice screen size with a good selection of channels which also include TCM (turner classic movies), which we don't... More

First, the Good: While visiting my friend in Toronto he had a Groupon coupon for this hotel. He paid $76.00 for one night's stay. Also Good: terrific location right in downtown Toronto. Easy underground parking (for $25.00). Friendly service. Quiet night's sleep. Now for the Bad: very worn hotel. Dark and dreary. Even the lights were low. And what hotel... More

Sorry to hear you found your stay with us to be depressing and uncomfortable This is certainly not our intent and it is unfortunate that we did not get the opportunity to make it better for you during your stay. Our décor is dated and certainly not all of our rooms face a brick wall. We would have gladly checked... More

Good location. Nothing updated, carpet in hallway and rooms old and in need of replacement. Parking is outside in a 15 space lot, first come first serve and over priced at $ 25.00. S/b 15.00 Close to Yorkville shopping and lots of restaurants and night life to choose from. Close to subway and transit and Yonge St. Breakfast was very... More

This hotel is in a great location. My stay there was good except for a few minor problems. The breakfast was good as far continental breakfast goes. All in all It was a pleasant stay. I definitely recommend staying as this hotel.

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us. This hotel will be undergoing a complete renovation which will address many of the issues you mentioned. We are a small hotel and unfortunately, the breakfast room has limited seating but is complimentary and many guests do enjoy it. Not sure what picture you saw as we do not... More
