“"Home" In the Heart of Little Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

My husband & I have done quite a bit of travelling, and have always chosen 4 or 5 star resorts or hotels to stay at. However, for our recent trip to Toronto to take in a show at the Virgin Mobile Mod Club, we decided to try a local bed & breakfast for a change. I am so happy we decided to stray from our typical booking preference; otherwise, we would never have found this little jewel!!
This beautifully restored home is warm, inviting, comfortable, charming and luxurious. It is conveniently located just steps away from the wonderful food, drink and entertainment that the Little Italy district is famous for, just off College Street in Toronto. We easily walked everywhere we needed to go during our stay. And even if we had wanted to go downtown, it is only a short cab ride to the waterfront.
Roberta couldn't be a more welcoming and gracious hostess! She has many successful years of experience in the B&B industry, and you can see the pleasure and pride she takes in offering her guests anything they need to be comfortable and feel at home. She also gladly catered to my gluten & dairy free lifestyle, making wonderful breakfasts for me each day.
Our newly renovated, quiet, private 1 bedroom suite was located on the top (3rd) floor, and had its own full bathroom, full kitchen and even our own washer & dryer. The quality of the workmanship and furnishings used to restore this early 1900's home is evident, and adds to the luxurious feel of this building. We could not have been more comfortable at any 5 star hotel!
I highly recommend you stay at the Annex for your next stay in the Toronto area. We will most definitely be staying there again!!
Thanks Roberta and Staff!

Within the last several months I have had appointments at the Toronto Western hospital for health concerns. We live four hours away from the area, so we were absolutely delighted to find the Annex Garden B and B......a short ten minute walk from the hospital!!!! Roberta and her beautiful home (including the most well behaved dogs I have ever met!) take ALL the stress out of medical tests and visits to the specialist!! In the spring we were able to sit in front of a cozy fireplace in the evenings and just relax!!! A coffee/tea machine right in the room added to the soothing atmosphere...This time we thoroughly enjoyed our own private deck amongst the beautiful flowering trees!!! Heaven!!! Restaurants are also very close by so it was easy to just leave the car in the garage which is provided for guests and walk!!
Roberta also gave us a tour of one of the apartments in her home for guests who need longer stays!!! Lovely!!!
We would recommend the Annex Garden highly and hope to return again just for FUN!!!

The rooms are roomy, warm and inviting. Roberta has taken a lot of time to ensure everything has been thought of for your stay and is happy to assist with her knowledge of Toronto and the sites to see. As mentioned previously the breakfasts are different each day and the grapes in the fruit salad were the best I have ever tasted. It was also handy that we could use the laundry.

Room Tip: The room at the top of the stairs is the cheapest but they are all lovely and there are self contain...

My most recent stay at Annex Garden was for 3 nights mid May. My spouse will be with me in November and we will stay there again. Here's why I/we keep returning:
Location - Euclid is a quiet street in the vibrant College Street neighbourhood with good streetcar/subway connections to the downtown core - great location in a big city.
Units - We've usually rented one of the two suites - scrupulously clean and up to date - the pleasures of being in a gracious heritage house, with the equal pleasures of modern renovated rooms. We can manage stairs.
Hospitality - Roberta is a warm and charming host. She also has very good people working with her to keep Annex Garden spotless and special. The pugs, Flossie&Maggie, are part of the welcoming ambiance.
This is a great place to feel at home, to feel special, and to "live" when in Toronto.

Absolutely amazing. We will definitely be coming back to stay with Roberta again. Beautiful rooms, perfect location, friendly and very helpful staff, not to mention two adorable pugs in residence. Free wifi worked perfectly, tv in room worked well, bathroom was well stocked with towels, robes, hair dryer, even cotton pads and a heated towel rack! The bed was extremely comfortable. Koreatown, chinatown, kensington market all a short walk away. We even walked down to the Eaton centre and the Air Canada Centre! I wholly recommend staying here, you won't regret it!

Room Tip: The Queen room is up a couple of flights of stairs, so if you choose that, be aware!

I stayed for 5 days and I could only repeat or approve all the reviews that are written about the Annex Garden and I also want to mention the delicious complete differents breakfasts made of homemade recipes every day I stayed. Roberta is always ready to help so we have an excellent stay. Her staff is very nice. Please take note the address is 445 Euclid and Bathurst and Harbords Sts was before Roberta moved a few years ago.
Easy to reach AGO or ROM either by Toronto Public Transportation and when you are tired a taxi is not expensive. I walked many times when I was alone and feeled secure.

A friend and I had the pleasure of spending two nights at this wonderful B&B recently. The home has been carefully restored to reflect it's old world charm and Roberta's collection of art and her superb hospitality make you feel welcome and comfortable. We walked everywhere and found the location to be perfect for access to downtown, public transportation and restaurants. We stayed in the king room, complete with fireplace, beautiful bathroom and lovely outside porch. The price was very reasonable considering the location, service and amenities. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
