Recently stayed at this hotel. It is in a very bad part of the city. The room was very clean and the staff were fantastic. But it is a no-frills hotel. No elevators, no air conditioning. We couldn't sleep, it was so hot. The price is excellent and the staff are more than willing to accommodate any problems you may... More

My partner and myself are currently staying at filmores, due to transition and we are both professionals,We have stayed at many highend hotels, and had worse conditions. Yes Filmores is an old building, but it is also historical, Great location, street people are harmless and you will find homeless everywhere in Toronto. I found the Manager Ian and all his... More

I will just get right to the point. Clean to an extent. It is an old place. Bad area... and it is on top of a strip joint. There are bed bugs. Sorry just being honest. I admit it is reasonable... but they have odd rules. You must pay for friends to visit after 11. (per person) I think this... More

I had a very different experience from the review I read on this site. Hotel was surprisingly clean, staff friendly, area safe (street peeps are harmless) and rooms were as advertised - no frills, contemporary renovated with cable TV, 24/7 security and cheap. As a salesman who visits Toronto frequently, why spend $100's a night when I can spend $210/week.

Staff were friendly, but the neighborhood will have you clutching your wallet and running for cover. The place is mostly clean, but old and not well kept. Carpets are stained and smelly, beds are old, smells like old men. I wouldn't recommend it, unless you are in need of something cheap and temporary.

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.
