“Great Stay and Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

We stayed at the Downtown Home Inn two nights, Thursday and Friday in June 2012. The location is extremely convenient, on a dead end street across the street from a park. It is about a 4 minute walk to the Wellesley Station and within ~20 minute walk to major sites/attractions. There are plenty of restaurants/bars on the street adjacent to the bnb,

You can walk to the Toronto waterfront./CN tower in about an hour, or hit the train up and get there in less ~10 minutes.

Upon entering the building, there is a eat-in kitchen and a small sitting area. The space was very clean and modern looking. We stayed on the third floor in the Violet room. The pictures on the website matched the decor of the room. The room was nice size with a small TV, very comfy bed, a standing closet to hang clothes, a small desk and mirror and access to private deck, which you have a view of the CN tower.

The innkeeper was fantastic and attentive. The continental breakfast offered a good variety of cereals, bagels, english muffins, cheeses, juices, and granola.

The days we visited Toronto hit over 90 degrees, but our room stayed cool with central A/C.

Overall, our stay was fantastic! We will definitely stay there again when we return to Toronto. This place offers good value, excellent hospitality, and above all convenience in downtown Toronto.

Room Tip: There are only 2 bedrooms on the third floor and one bathroom-- this seemed to the be the quieter o...

It is an excellent cozy B&B with just a few bedrooms, which makes the place homely. The breakfast is “all-you-can-eat”, with lots of fruits and bakery options. Besides, the kitchen is well equipped so you can arrange meals for yourself anytime. Even if some of the rooms share the bathroom, there was hardly ever queue (even in the morning). The place has highest standards of cleanness (I had my towels changed every other day without even asking for it!).
It is located 3min from a subway station, thus within 15min. you can reach any place in Downtown Toronto. Besides it is a LGBT neighborhood – what actually was an advantage since there were number of nice cheap places for eating out.

Staying at the Inn was like staying at a friend's place, including the ability to raid the fridge in the morning for breakfast. I stayed there Thursday - Sunday in June 2012. It is located next to a shady park in a great area with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. The Wellesley subway station is a few minutes walk away through a nice residential area.

The Inn is very clean with lovely wood floors and comfortable bed. I stayed in the Iris room, with the shared bathroom right next to my room. The room was quiet and peaceful, with a vine-covered brick wall just outside the window and a constant cool breeze even in the afternoon heat. The Inn has free internet which is also a big plus.

For breakfast I chose the greek yogurt with fresh fruit, orange juice, cinnamon toast and butter, and tea. It was also great to have the kettle handy in the afternoon so I could have a cup of tea while getting ready to head out for dinner. Unal is a friendly host and I also enjoyed chatting with his helper from Australia.

If ever in Toronto again I will return to stay at the Downtown Home Inn!

The Inn was nice, clean and welcoming, and I felt very safe. Very well-situated in a lively area. Whilst we were only able to communicate virtually on that occasion, I found Unal very helpful, and was following up to emails promptly (before, during and after my stay), which I think is essential when conducting honest business. I will definitely come back for another short stay in Toronto and intend to refer this inn to both personal and business contact as well!

Room Tip: The third floor probably offers more privacy. The bathroom on this floor is tiny and to be shared wi...

I came to Canada in order to travel, enjoy and try to test business options.
I was almost 4 months in Canada, also in Toronto, (and other places in Ontario), Montreal and 1.5 months in Alberta. Every time when I got back trips, I returned to B & B of Unal.
I felt very rested here. Really nice house, I was almost in all rooms, all decorated very nice. Unal thought about all the little details, which will be both beautiful and comfortable. The B&B looks more beautiful than the pictures.
The place is very clean, excellent bedding and smell and have a pleasant atmosphere of home.
Varied breakfast, healthy, generous and rich. And has always been an interesting and pleasant company during the meal. The kitchen like the rest of the house comfortable and beautiful. Excellent location and the center of downtown! (and safe area)
There is an excellent subway transportation distance of 3 minutes. Everything is really close, supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, gyms, shopping centers and attractions. Yet the place is quiet, the house is located on a small street and back.
I traveled almost everywhere on foot and everything really within walking distance. Unal also acknowledges the excellent Toronto was always fun to consult with him and talk to him. Is an excellent host! Many thanks Unal for everything!!
I highly recommend this place! I could not expect for more. And apparently safe return next month :-)

Room Tip: all the rooms are very good!!

This Inn is surrounded by restaurants and amenities, and very close to transit. All furniture is modern, with beautiful bed linens, a very comfortable bed. Spotlessly clean environment. The grab your own breakfast is okay; amenities which were there Tuesday were gone Wednesday, and some supplies completely empty by Thursday, but the 7-10 availability and the overal quality is good (except the bread products). Excellent speed wifi. Very quiet location.

Room Tip: The Acacia room, while less expensive, requires a one flight walk up to the bathroom, through the...

I stayed at this B and B last week and had a great experience for many reasons. I got a warm welcome from the owner, Unal and he made me feel right at home.
The B and B is right near the subway, situated in a fun part of town with lots of good places to eat nearby. My room was clean, quiet and modern and I had good wifi access. I'm planning to stay there again next week.
