The hotel was cheap, but not in a great location, and the room could have done with a refurb (and I'm sure it had recently had one, so I should say a better one).
On arrival, we had to cart bags up some stairs, so limited level access as far as I could see, which wasn't too great. We had problems of an embarassing nature with the bathroom, which were sorted out, and then realised we didn't have enough towels or crockery for us all.
The room itself was a suite, and from the floorplan, the largest room in the hotel. 2 large bedrooms, with a lounge and bathroom. Plenty of space for luggage and clothes. There was a smelly microwave and intermittently-working minifridge. The coffee wasn't wonderful either. The bathroom was small and old, and once the issues were resolved was OK, but could do with a refit. The fridge stopped working and when we investigated this was because there were too many appliances all working off the same electric socket - bit risky!! The windows needed cleaning too. The beds were king size, but not too comfortable. There were three TVs overall (one in lounge and one in each room).
The area in which the hotel is located is not the best but ok. The Carlton streetcar is nearby, and College subway station not too far away either. Allan Gardens has improved in recent years since my last visit, but still isn't great.
There is a swimming pool, which we didn't try ,and a restaurant that looked decent value, but didn't try it either. Quite good facilities for the price though.
On departure, they tried to charge us for 3 nights car parking, when the car was returned to the hire company after the first night (and we told them so at check in and when we returned the car).
They did keep our bags in the luggage room on departure day so that we could do some last minute shopping, which was good.
Overall, average - the room was very big and decent value at £200 for 3 nights for what was really like an apartment, but could do with a refit and I wasn't too keen on the area.
