We stayed here for three nights. Scott, the owner, was happy to meet us at a time that was convenient for us (we arrived mid morning), and was very friendly and helpful, suggesting good restaurants in the local area. The hotel is not in downtown Toronto, but is in walking distance to Yonge Street and the University, with restaurants very nearby (we would suggest Guu and House on Parliament). It is clean and tidy, and has a quirky, homely, relaxed feel. Our bedroom was lovely, as was the living room where we relaxed in the evening with a cup of tea. The breakfast was very tasty (both the blueberry pancakes and French toast were delicious). Would definitely recommend.
