Musty, dilapidated room in great location

The location is outstanding. The pricing is very reasonable. The free breakfast was very good. Too bad the bathrooms were totally run down with cracked paint. Worst of all, the room had a very musty odor

Let me say up front that this hotel is in a superb location. Close to public transit and tourist attractions but with the benefit of being tucked into a quiet, upscale neighbourhood. Our room, as seen in many of the hotel's own photos, was quite large with a lovely brick accent wall. The beds, while not queen size, were comfortable and clean. We had a large corner room with windows on two walls. While the view is somewhat limited by the surrounding taller buildings, there is a lot of natural light. The front desk staff were friendly and welcoming and check in was quick and easy. All of this, however, does not negate the shortcomings of this hotel. Let me start with the most concerning of the issues, room security. While the hotel locks its front doors to non-guests after 11:00 p.m., our room lacked both a working secondary room lock and a working inside bolt. For women travelling alone, this is a pretty important problem that could be easily remedied by a good locksmith. In the matter of room comfort, if we had planned to spend any time in the room we would have been hard pressed to get comfortable with only two wooden chairs available at one table and a basic chair at the desk in the room, none of which really conducive to relaxing. The TV is non-high definition though it is a small flat screen. The bathroom was tiny, to the point that the toilet paper is on a holder that sits directly at your shoulder while on the toilet. Despite the room being advertised as able to sleep four, there were only two towels available and they were threadbare. The shower had zero water pressure and a hot-cold guide that was opposite, blue for hot and red for cold. The switch to move the water from shower to the tub faucet did not work, so filling the tub should we have wanted a bath would have been a task using the pressure-less shower. Finally, the decor, in particular the seriously dated curtains that do not close completely and the visibly dated furniture leave much to be desired and just serve to emphasize just how dated the hotel really looks. This hotel has great potential given its location and its architectural backbone but it needs a serious facelift before we would consider staying there again. At a minimum, they need to insure that all safety features in the rooms are in good working condition. Collapse
Helpful staff and bargain price for location

Stayed for ten nights while catching some baseball. Located in Yorkville so much quieter than the downtown hotels, rooms are clean if a little basic and dated. Free breakfast of pastries, cereals, coffee, tea and juices was welcome and coffee available in the lobby 24/7 was just what I needed when coming back from the baseball. Staff were excellent. Afraid I have forgotten the name of the very helpful gentleman on the front desk but he supports Arsenal if that helps identify him! On the day we left I asked him about taxis to the airport and he arranged for a hotel car for a flat rate $56. Every other time in Toronto the taxi to Pearson has been between $70 and $80. If you want luxury accommodation then this is not the hotel for you but if you just need somewhere to sleep at night for a bargain price in a nice location it can't be beat. Collapse

Stayed here for one night and was very pleased. Though the front entrance and lobby are a bit run down, the staff were very friendly and efficient. In the room the table and chairs were kind of shabby looking, but the beds were very clean and comfortable and that's what really mattered. We found the room to be very quiet, except for the air conditioner, which could be very noisy when starting up. The bathroom was clean and spacious with a large counter. The breakfast was enough to get you going for the day with juice, coffee, tea, hardboiled eggs, cereals, toast and yogurt. Nothing fancy, but did the trick. Location is excellent, very handy to Yorkville, Bloor St, and the subway is just 2 minutes away (Bay). The luggage storage room is not monitored, they just give guests a key to open the door and store their own luggage, so be very careful with valuables. Overall we were very pleased and I would stay here again. Collapse

I had read reviews saying this hotel needs refreshing... that is an understatement! When you enter the room you get the feeling you are back to the 70s cottage. All furniture is run down and the carpet may not have been changed for longer than I want to think about. The A/C unit was so noisy it felt like I was in a plane. I unplugged it for the night so I could sleep. The bed was squeaky and the mattress terrible. I did not get a good sleep because of that. The washroom could use a makeover and there was some missing stucco from the ceiling around the light fixture in the entrance of the room and the smoke detector was hanging from the ceiling (not sure if it was working actually given how it was hanging there). The toilet handle broke in the morning and they fixed it only for it to break again the next morning when I was leaving. The free breakfast is cereals, bagels and pastries as well as hardboiled eggs in a jar (!?). The room where you have breakfast is bare with cafeteria style tables and plastic folding chairs (see picture). I only ate there the first morning. If you must have breakfast and must stay there I recommend going next door to the Whole Foods café. Collapse
