I had a trip to Toronto to catch a weekend workshop near Queen's Park and wanted to find a modern affordable place to stay in that was within walking distance to class. So I googled around and all I could find were worn out and dated B&B's, until I happened upon the Downtown Home Inn.
The pics definitely match the beauty and style of the B&B, courtesy of host Unal (who directed the renovations of the townhouse I later learned!). Unal's attention to detail also extended to service. He got me a permit for my car to be able to park for several days at an unbelievable price for downtown Toronto, which helped immensely, and bounded up the steps to offer batteries for the TV remote within minutes of having emailed him!
The B&B is located near wonderful restaurants and even has a handy Hasty Market convenience store around the corner (which I believe is 24hours) that has fresh packaged deli food and fruits and veggies. Whole Foods (my fave!) is a brisk 20min walk, and there are a few other US stores on Bloor we don't get in Quebec. A cinema and bookstore are also within walking distance which made this a fun neighbourhood to stay in.
Although my course was too early for me to partake in breakfast, the selection of food available at the Inn was very good.
To echo the sentiments of many of the reviews posted, the hospitality was warm and welcoming and this B&B truly felt like home. Hope to stay hear again on my next visit!
