My wife & I have stayed here now four times during our travels to Toronto. Lovely place to stay, nice light breakfast in the morning and very good communication with Holly. Location is a block from Queen Street where you will fine many restaurants and all kinds of shopping. Highly recommended.
My positive experience of dealing with IndexG started off with communicating with Holly leading up to my visit. She was consistently friendly, kind and gracious in all our communications. Holly was extremely helpful and clearly committed to ensuring that my planning for my stay was seamless. I am referring here to my queries about transport, accepting deliveries and detailed invoices I needed to support visa application. Also, I needed to check in a bit early. Done! Fast forward to my arrival. The exterior of the building is a bit deceptive as it is a dull grey and looks a bit uninviting, however on stepping inside Holly, then owner, welcomed me warmly, showed me my room and explained a bit about the neighbourhood and getting around. My room was lovely, spacious and clean with a equally spacious and modern bathroom. Overall, it was comfortable and conducive to relaxing on the bed watching TV or working at the desk. The location is cool too. IndexG is just a block from the Queen Street which is where one can access a street car to get to the centre of the city, or one can easily walk there whilst taking in the lively streets with restaurants, bars and shops. The location is convenient and works. To be fair to those who will read this review, the breakfast is functional at best consisting of fruit, cereal, oats, bread and tea/coffee. It was fine for me as I am not a big breakfast person, but can imagine that someone who always wants to feel a bit pampered when away from home might be a bit disappointed. That said, left to chose between a "fancy" breakfast of bacon, eggs etc and an overall price increase versus an affordable, pleasant and predictable place, I would opt for the latter. Finally, IndexG is a gem of an option if you're a no fuss person who appreciates homeliness, convenience and genuine hospitality. I would happily stay here again. The price is right, the rooms are clean, tastefully put together with lots of art and the stay very comfortable. Thank you Holly, you're a great host!…
I really enjoyed my stay at IndexG! The gallery tour was really memorable, the hosts were lovely and the room and breakfast were very good! It was a great alternative to paying a lot more to stay at the nearby Gladstone hotel.
The description of this b&b on its web site is totally exact and the rooms are as in the photographs. Communications with the owners are efficient and cordial. The B&B is conveniently located in terms of public transit and the area is in an interesting stage of rehabilitation (still affordable, but lively with good services). The price is low for Toronto. The rooms are functional and modern style and the whole place is extremely clean. Do not be put off by the type of building: the owners rebuilt it from the inside.
This is a great place to stay. It is located on a quiet street and is close to public transit, restaurants and there is a grocery store right across the street. The owner was very nice and the rooms have unique pieces of art as decoration. It's lovely.
