“Excellent stay!”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

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!

I spent 10 days in Toronto, visiting a University, at Downtown Home Inn. Regarding its location, it was just great. Beyond being in a very nice area with good restaurants and stores, it is easy to arrive at almost anywhere in town by subway. Moreover, there is a Bixi (the bike rent service in Toronto) dock just in front of the hotel: It is a nice way to know the city (of course, if the weather is friendly). My room, at the third floor, was pretty nice and clean, as well as the bathroom. The breakfast was decent, with good options, including Nutella and different choices of cereals, which I miss here in Brazil. Last but not least, there was the host, Unal, who is a great guy, friendly and flexible regarding clients needs. I had a great time in Toronto in part thanks to Downtown Home Inn.

Very clean, good location, friendly host.
It was just like staying at home.
Much better than pricey shabby hotels in downtown.

Home Inn is one of the best B&B I have stayed in, anywhere in the world (and I've stayed in a few). Location! Friendly ambience! Comfort! Cleanliness! Cost! I will definitely be back.

Downtown Home Inn proved to be a wonderful find - very clean, comfortable, and quiet. It had a great location - you could walk to most of the many highlights of Toronto. And the innkeeper, Unal, was extremely nice and helpful. The next time I visit Toronto I will surely stay there again.

A very good b&b at a perfect location. We did not find the place noisy at all and had a great night sleep. Unal is a very friendly host, breakfast was good. The public 'bixi' bikes are parked at the front of the house and are a great way to explore Toronto.
