A boutique type hotel that is across from Union Station. Underground shopping is accessible across the street. Waterfront and ferries, CNN Tower, Ripley 's, Roger 's Centre all within walking distance. Our room was small....very little room to put clothes in the small wardrobe and 2 drawer nightstand. Left most of our clothes in our cases. Bed was comfortable. Room...

Stayed here for one night a couple weeks back. Similar to older European hotels with smaller rooms, some with quirky shapes. I had the real small room but after a 4 days on the train it looked quite. Certainly sufficient for a 12 hr Toronto stay. Clean and safe. Best value in downtown Toronto.

When we checked in our room was not ready. A German tour group was checking in at the same time. Our friends' room was ready so we left our luggage there and went out to tour the city and have supper. Upon our return our room key did not work. When we went to the front desk we were told...

Clean hotel located right in downtown. Front desk clerks were very helpful with travel information for the two days that we were there. Left on the VIA train which was convenient to hotel. Between check out and the departure of the evening train, the hotel had a baggage room.

Know what you are looking for. Best price can mean no gym or extra space for a desk in the room. That said, good value, clean and cool and a retro kind of way. I did like the eco-friendly soap and shampoo dispensing in the bathrooms. Far less waste!

Room was clean but very basic and you could hear noise from above and on your floor. Standard price is ok given the location(around $200 with possible breakfast). We paid more than what it was worth ($280+ no breakfast). When I asked staff about the excessive increase in price I was advised that it was due to a mining convention...

The location is really good, downtown in walking distance of great restaurants and the main central station, but that's it. My reservation said breakfast was included, but the front desk said it wasn't. The rooms were tiny, I heard every time someone on my floor closed their doors, the shades did not close properly which made it very hard for...

Super well located. 30 mins from airport .5 minutes walk from air Canada centre and cn tower. Clean room, but not super big. Could be an issue if you are 2 guests and stay there for a long period of time. Wifi was fast. Good value for the price they charge. Will return for sure .
