“Really nice, convenient apartment”
Reviewed November 16, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This is a perfectly located apartment. It is on the corner of Wellington and Blue Jays, between the entertainment and financial districts. Union station is easy walking distance and so if you are flying into Pearson airport you can get the UP express train very easily and cheaply into the centre of downtown and this apartment. The PATH (or underground walkway through Toronto) is a god send when the weather is cold and wet (and it was) and is very close to the Ritz Carlton which is 5 minutes walk from here. You can walk to the Eaton Centre (with 2 very restless children) in 40 minutes. The aquarium and CN tower are about 5-10 minutes walk.
On arriving at the apartment, security didn't know that we were coming and so we were detained for 20 minutes before the security manager gave the authorisation to give us the keys - it is very secure. Unfortunately because early October had been exceptionally hot (as opposed to end of October when we arrived) the air conditioning could not be altered. It was permanently set at 66 degrees Fahrenheit and blew out cold air. Maybe not many people rent out apartments in autumn/winter but the only bedding in the apartment were comforters and not duvets or blankets. This meant having to sleep with thermal underwear because it was really cold at night. All this and the cold weather outside contributed to me and my youngest getting colds and sore throats. After emailing Sam he did come with a dish heater, which was very warm, and more comforters. Unfortunately the management company were not going to alter the air conditioning temperature until the beginning of November - beyond Sam's control but without the additional heater it would have been difficult to bear. There is a truly excellent outdoor/camping shop 2 blocks away called MEC, where my wife bought a (cheap-ish) very warm coat and I bought loads of delicious apple cider to soothe my throat. It also has a free, secure, reserved parking place. Whilst the apartment is fully functional you must bring all the "extras" with you like dishwasher and washing tablets and toilet paper. When you book this apartment you also have to pay a $250 deposit but this was returned within a week of leaving.
In summary this place would be ideal in summer. Hopefully if you book it in the colder months you will bring warm clothes, there will be proper bedding, the dish heater will still be there and the heating will actually work.

“Great Apartment in Perfect Location”
Reviewed August 14, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I booked this apartment as it was close to the exhibition hall (10 min walk), as I had a conference there. Most downtown activities are within 20 min walk, including the coast / harbor, Blue Jay Stadium, great restaurants, bars and Chinatown. There is a 24 h shop within 10 min on Spadina ave which carries most items at reasonable prices.
The apartment is in great condition, with a great kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. Everything is in good condition. All kitchen tools are available. Air conditioning works well and is not too noisy. A parking spot in available in the lower basement (entrance from Peter Street right around the corner, first back road first entrance, use green button on key ring) - keep on driving down to P4. The pool on the roof was unfortunately out of order.
Important note: the second bed is within the living room / kitchen with just a some curtains for privacy.

“Good location”
Reviewed August 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I love this location. The only pb was with a front desk. The person I asked had no idea about renting. I was lucky a manager was in a front desk and she arranged all.

In general, the condo is amazing. Location is near everything. I recommanded this condo. Thank you Sam.

“Great Location Great Value”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a great time with this Flipkey experience. The Condo was a great value and great location for all the major sites. The parking and entry was easy once you figure it out. An extra set of building entry keys would be handy but the front desk was always there to help out. The pool was closed for repairs which the kids were disappointed in but we really did not have much extra time to swim. For a family of 5 it was a perfect spot for 6 days in the city.

“Nice, convenient apartment with many amenities”
Reviewed October 28, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Comfortable beds, big screen tv, wifi, clean and very convenient to sites in Toronto. Sam was extremely helpful. When the tv didn't work, he came by to fix it. When our American cells didn't work in Canada, he came by with a local phone so we could call restaurants etc. And, despite some confusion he let us depart later than the check-out time. Alex, at the desk downstairs was also very much willing to help us. A few minor things: you might want to bring soap. We ran out of toilet paper as well and had to buy some, but I gather he's taken care of that and has purchased a new, more convenient coffee maker.

“Loved It! Excellent Experience and Price”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Comfortable, quiet, excellent price for such a super location, including free parking, for our 4 night stay. Trolleys and subway nearby, short walk to the waterfront, many restaurants in the neighborhood, convenience store in the building -- in all, a fun experience, many thanks to Sam H! A tip: if you arrive in a car there is visitor parking in the alley behind the building. You will need to park so you can buzz at the lobby door to get entry and access to the reception desk.

“Great Location”

The apartment was in a great location close to shops, supermarkets restaurants . This apartment was very nice and had plenty of utensils and dishes pots pans etc, in the kitchen, my only negative with this apartment is that it needs a bit of a refurbishment. The one blind in the bedroom was broke you could not pull it up it was closed all the time,more pillow cases is needed for the extra pillows that are there, there is not much privacy for the people sleeping in the den if they are in bed and someone is in the living area you would wake them as it is only a curtain separating them, it is more suitable for children then adults. the weather was lovely when I visited, but the furniture and the balcony was dirty, don't think it had been cleaned for months. Sam was really good when I emailed him and asked him if I could stay in apartment until the afternoon as my flight was early evening, he said yes no problem as there is nowhere in the lobby / reception to leave your luggage as it is a residential building not a holiday apartment building, Overall it was clean and comfortable.
