My son and I stayed here two nights. The hotel is sparse, but it has everything you need. Each room has a fridge, stovetop, dishes, and utensils. My only "complaint" is that you pay per person, and I felt that my son (age 4) didn't merit the "full" person charge. Otherwise, this was a bargain, and the location is a DREAM! We were able to walk almost everywhere, and used transit for the rest. This isn't a fancy hotel; it's very basic, but a great value. Yes, the building and its interior are "tired", but I've stayed in worse and paid much more for a location on the outskirts of the city, so this is still a bargain. The area is very safe; we even walked back to the hotel in the dark after dinner at Kensington Market, and I would do so again. Very vibrant local community (on the fringe of Chinatown), so we saw lots of activity in the park while we were there; tai chi, ballroom dancing lessons, sports, and more. Most memorable was the SERVICE! Granted, we didn't need much, but the staff was very responsive, and even let us leave our car there for the entire day after we checked out; this alone saved me $30, which I would have had to pay elsewhere. I will stay here again, especially in warmer weather. If travelling alone, I would hesitate in the winter months, as the room is too small for a child to spend a lot of time in. And yes, parking is a measly $5 a day... But I've stayed at other high-end hotels while in Toronto, and they charge $20+ a night for parking, on top of the room rate... $5 a night? Yes please!
