We had a limited budget and no knowledge of Toronto at all. Booked suite #1 online judging by the pictures and reviews. Upon arrival, we thought we had been had...but don't let the exterior fool you. We stayed in mid-March when everything looks grey and dirty. The exterior could use a lick of paint, perhaps better signage as it's hard... More

All in all this was a pretty average stay! We got a very good price so we can't be too unhappy with this place. The man who checked us in was very friendly, we saw him a couple of times outside and always said hi and asked how we were. The room was very basic and quite clean, it has... More

The location is great. Very central and close to major Toronto attractions. I realize that for the price you cannot expect much in terms of comfort. The pictures of the rooms are very misleading and our "tastefully decorated" room was scarcely furnished, cold, dark, and uncomfortable. The TV didn't work properly and the air conditioning was way too cold. More... More

I stayed here a few months back and stumbled across it looking for a guesthouse or hostel to stay at. We rocked up in the early afternoon after a flight from New York and found the place walking from the train station relatively easily. We did have to wait a bit at the front door to be let in but...

This was a great place to stay while in Toronto. We had room 2 which a lot of people have written negatively about but we haven't found any issues. The bed is in a little nook but we find this cosy. The location is great as it is right near a subway, bank, shops etc. Definitely try out Mansion Keg... More

Perfect place to stay a few nights in Toronto. Good price and good location. Not far away from the next subway station, few food places around and we had a really nice room: comfy double bed, nice couch, fridge, water cooker, tv, everxthing you need for a few days. Parking was available as well. I would go back. Just maybe... More

Ada's is easy to find and in a nice area, very close to a subway station. On arrival we had to phone the owner but he arrived fairly promptly and was friendly. Our room was tiny and had an unpleasant smell in it. The bed sheets were clean but the bed was in such a narrow alcove we had to... More

My husband and I, together with my parents, visited Toronto at the ending of May and stayed for 3 nights. We really chose Ada's Guesthouse because all the others were already booked, or were to expensive for us. The prices were fine, but here are our impressions. ARRIVAL AND PROPERTY: First of all, the building is very well situated, near... More

This place has a great location, but not enough of a benefit to justify the cost when for a few extra dollars you can stay at another hotel and actually have a clean room and maid service. I had made the reservation on line based on the website, however when I arrived the website had obviously been done a long... More
