A friend of ours recommended IndexG b&b to us, she stayed there last year and said she had a good time, so we decided to give it a try. We usually stay in hotels when we visit Toronto, however we are very happy that we made the switch! This b&b is located in an interesting, trendy artsy neighborhood, with lots of shops and restaurants near by. It is the first time we stayed in that area, usually we stay right in central downtown. We like this new location and will be going back there to explore the area again soon when it is warmer :)
Upon arrival, we were impressed with the gallery space and the exhibition. The hosts help us check-in and led us to our room upstairs. Our room was lovely, bright and looked just like the pictures, everything was clean and tidy. They give you a lot privacy, we like that we didn't have to walk though someone's living room just to get to our room. The bed was very comfortable. We had a wonderful sleep and almost didn't wake up in time for breakfast!
We had breakfast in the gallery downstairs, there was a good selection of items and we love the homemade bread! It was better than we expected. After a lovely conversation with the hosts and other guests we decided to go shopping. We left our car at the b&b and took the streetcar which was very close by on Queen street. It didn't take us long at all to reach the city centre. We saw lots of shops along the way which we are planning to explore when we go back.
We travel to Toronto a few times a year so we are glad to have found this affordable b&b, it is now our new fave spot.
