I stayed for 4 nights in a double room. Although the room was on the smallish side, it was comfortable. Besides two night tables, it had a desk and chair, a cupboard with shelves and a section to hang clothing (albeit small), a flat screen TV, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, utensils and dishes. Overall the room was clean, although the... More

Dear Helen: thanks so much for your feedback and we are so happy you had a pleasant stay! We value an opportunity to improve our service and so we are diligently searching for the bathroom where you saw some mold! Just to clarify for people reading the reviews, used towels are changed daily and sheets for guests staying longer than... More

We were seeking an economical room downtown to crash after a show. The room was very affordable. It was small and not the most comfortable or well-appointed, but perfectly adequate. It seemed clean, the plumbing worked, and we felt secure. Services are minimal and be careful you understand how to check in, depending when you arrive. Other rooms may be... More

Gorgeous building, very well kept inside and out .Friendly staff. Reasonable rates for what you get. Room well equipped, clean and quiet. The bed is just ok but perfectly fine for a short stay.Right in the heart of the village and walking distance to many restaurants and shopping.

We stayed here for 2 nights, it is one of the nicest buildings in Toronto. Well located to visit all Toronto's attractions. Well equipped rooms with kitchenette and an added bonus of lovely balcony to sit out. Good value for money. Plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance.

This is a lovely place to stay. It's a very old house, so as long as you're not expecting 5* luxury it's very nice indeed. The room I was in was small, but livable. Think cosy rather than cramped. The only thing that caught me out was the raked ceiling above the shower, watch your head! The only problem with... More

This is a lovely little guest house with the charm of a hotel. The rooms are very clean and wifi is available throughout. We made great use of the fridge and microwave for our breakfast. The area has many restaurants and bars within walking distance and the Wellesley subway is only a three minute walk away. We would definitely stay... More

If I traveled to Toronto frequently, I wouldn't be writing a review. This place has an amazing location and value, and I would be concerned that it would become too difficult to book a room here if it got too popular. The mansion is walking distance from the Wellesley and the Bloor-Yonge subway stations, it was super easy to take... More

Since leaving Toronto 8 years ago, Victoria Mansion has become my home away from home. I do not like large chain hotels, and dislike even more hotels with central air. At Victoria Mansion, I can open the windows and get fresh air. There is a fridge and microwave to prepare small meals. The tv is more than adequate. If clients... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
