Spent hours online looking for 4-5 bedroom house to rent for 3 1/2 weeks to accommodate a dozen people in Toronto for family wedding. Not much available, and cost was prohibitive. Eventually decided on three separate apartments in The Conservatory Tower. We chose it primarily for the location, then on price (good), and if that is important then this place is great value. Our apartment two bedrooms and two bathrooms and was clean when we arrived (other family chose one bedroom apartments). It is serviced weekly, but toiletries and more importantly toilet paper were not replaced - they were the following week when we left a note!! However, for a place which accommodates four guests, it only had three lounge chairs, three small plates... The second bedroom was tiny, and the wardrobe door was broken, fallen off the track. It was propped up, but after 3 weeks was not repaired, neither was the broken mirror. The vertical blinds were missing slats, and these were replaced after complaint. In fact we were offered another apartment, but that was worse, the bed was broken and propped up on the cabinet.
Good points: location (apart from the construction site across the road) washer/dryer, location, reasonable size except for bedroom 2, location. Comfortable for 3, ok for 4. So what's with the location? Walking distance to sops, bars, restaurants, and more importantly to the subway and trams. Very easy to get to from the airport.
Bad points: maintenance is poor, light bulbs were not replaced, fittings were brokena nd not repaired when reported, noisy, air-con was set to heat, and we were not able to reduce the temperature to something bearable - we were opening the windows to let air in when it was snowing outside.
Overall, if you can cope with minor problems - i.e. you don't expect it all to be right, then this is a wonderfully located apartment, and good value for money. If you expect 5 star, look somewhere else. Yes, even knowing what to expect, we'd stay there again.
