I stayed here when I was in Toronto for work and visiting a friend. I found a deal for around $80 a night...with that said I wasn't expecting much. The first thing I thought when I walked in was " something very bad has happened here". Just the vibe of the room lol. The room and bed and furniture was... More

The hotel seems to be a bit dated and looks more like a hostel than an actual hotel. It's location was amazing, however. Walking distance to the Royal Ontario Museum and subway stations. The room looked nice, however it was not that nice to be in. The beds were not that great and the sheets were not comfortable, but you... More

I did not expect much from the hotel as it was more in the budget range, but I feel let down by the level of basic service. We stayed in June, having booked two rooms to accommodate all of us. When we checked in we were told it was not possible for us to have our rooms on the same... More

Luckily I took precaution before setting my belongings on floor or bed. I pulled back sheets to do my check and found brown flecks along seam, since this is a sign of bed bugs I went further and pulled the mattress half way down bed so I could check the top end and sure enough there they were congregating in...

This hotel is old and in need of a few repairs but it was clean and the room was okay, beds comfortable. Had booked for 3 adults but only received towels and toiletries, coffee, tea and cups for 2.

My mother, sister, and I stayed here on the weekend once again. We chose this hotel for its fantastic location to subways, restaurants and beautiful Yorkville. We already were prepared for a basic, no frills hotel, and again, we were not disappointed since that's exactly what we got. Our room was a business room and it was HUGE! It was... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
