...and I suppose, for almost the centre of downtown Toronto, the price I paid ($350 per week - about £215 at the time) it was okay. BUT.... the room was very small, not very clean or pleasant, had no coffee-making facilities (not even a kettle - though there was a fridge and a microwave), had no crockery or cutlery at all, had no food-preparation facilities, and was stiflingly hot all the time due to the fact that the whole house was heated centrally and individual radiators could not be turned either down or off. Aside from those things, on the first day I had to wash the pillows because they were badly stained and smelly - and the bed linen generally was, whilst clean, rather yellow and stale-smelling. The carpet was stained. The wallpaper had damp marks. There were no net curtains, and you couldn't really open the curtains anyway because the windows were both overlooked. You get the picture. So... go well prepared., and don't expect anything special - just somewhere to put your stuff and to sleep. Take some earplugs, too, because the noise from the road may keep you awake - especially as you will need to keep the windows open at night because of the heat!
