89 Chestnut has an unbeatable location at the heart of Toronto city, close to city attractions, the CBD, Chinatown and transport links The food at the cafeteria (Chestnut tree) is of a high quality and there is much variety available Staff are friendly and hospitable. I enjoyed my stay :)

We stayed there in mid August for a chess tournament for my kids...... The good things first....excellent location very close to Eaton center, Dundas square, light rail and subway. The staff was helpful and friendly. But the rooms are horrible. It probably won't even get one star. Carpet filthy,don't feel like stepping on it bare feet. Furniture old ....won't even... More

A total disappointment to be in this "hotel", if they like to call it. It caters to college students who stay there for a long time periods. It was shocking to see that authorities get away with such horrible rooms, service and decor. The room was not cleaning before our arrival and there was debri everywhere. The carpets had not... More

I then call couple more times and eventually went down to young Asian lady and ask to speak to her manager. Then she said my manager don't deal with guest and... More

This hotel is one of the University of Toronto residences, so essentially there are many young people staying here (students and travellers). We did also see some older business people. The main reason to book this hotel would be its location which is central and within walking distance to the CN tower, Eaton Centre, main downtown area and attractions. It... More

I stayed at 89 Chestnut when attending a meeting there. Very central, conference facilities are moderate but generally OK. Rooms are spacious but a bit drab and the reception allowed me to leave my luggage for a few days before I checked in which was really helpful. Overall, I'd say this place is pretty OK but it would be even... More

The hotel is kind of a student dorm but it was not noisy. The room was big and clean. It has a great location in downtown right by Eaton Centre. Breakfast was included in the fee and was really good. The only problem I noticed was with the elevators. The hotel is really big, has many floors and they don't... More

I booked into 89 Chestnut for a summer stay. Then, after reading the reviews (OK, should have read them first), cancelled the booking. On the day of the intended say, they took the one day minimum charge from my card. I spoke to them later, sent them the paperwork, and they refunded the charge. Very polite and helpful except that,... More

I looked for cheap hotels to rest for 2 nights and most of the hotels in Toronto are too expensive. The residence is pretty nice for the price. And it is located next to the city hall downtown! We booked a two double bed room and while the AC is very noisy (waked me up until I switched it off)... More
