After one year I am back at the Toronto Garden Inn. It is such a welcoming place, historical, cosy, interesting and very very clean. Breakfast is laid on for you to come down to the eat in kitchen on a lovely old timber table, any time from when you wake until about 10/10.30am. Bryan our host is kind, helpful B&B is situated on the edge of historic Cabbagetown and a 10/15 minute walk to downtown Dundas Square (or for the lazy or shopping ladden - a short direct street car ride on the Dundas line). I often walk and as a single woman, who nearly always travels alone, I feel very comfortable and have never been harrased by anyone in this area. There are a number of services for the homeless in a street parallel to this one - but the homeless are not interested in what I do! If I do see them they are generally just waiting patiently for a meal from one of the local services.
I would stay here at the Toronto Garden Inn anytime. If you stay here for any length of time you will come away with new friends both fellow ravellers as well as the managers.More
