We're and older couple and spent 6 days in Toronto the end of May/2016. Rooms are a bit shabby but clean. We just requested a basic room with 2 beds.( They put an extra bed in the room). However there are suites also. We shared a bathroom but that was no problem. Breakfast was lovely and there is a common...

I stayed at Massey for nearly 3 months as a newcomer to the city. It's a good base to plan and get on your feet if you're relocating. Nothing fancy about it and the rooms do get quite dusty but you get fresh linen once a week, free breakfast in the morning and friendly porters who are a great guide...

I've stayed at Massey College Summer Residence/Dorm probably 6-7 times over that last decade. I love the central location. It's quiet if that's what you're looking for, but if you want more of a community/social scene you might want to consider one of the neighboring dorms/summer residences. While there tend to be a good number of people that stay here...

I'm surprised there are any negative reviews... I've stayed here twice and loved it both times. It is very safe (it is gated) and in a great location- it is right on the U of T campus, near a few museums, and is close (5 minute walking distance) to two subway stations! The rooms are very simple but at the...

I have stayed in a single room (shared bathroom) and a "senior" room (private bathroom). Both instances were comfortable. The residence is clean, comfortable, quiet and very centrally located. Constructed by Ron Thom in 1962, I am a fan of the architectural style and design details. As well, the inner courtyard, on a warm summer day or evening, is a...

This was a low cost stay in the middle of a major City. Apartments are available when grad students are away. Location was very good, as it was close to Bloor street and within 10-15 minute walking distance to Yonge street. Lots to do and see on Bloor. Even though the living room was very spacious, the bedroom was very...

Stayed here for much of the summer. This is a really unique place in the middle of Toronto, close to subways, food, entertainment and the like. I've stayed here before and was pleasantly surprised to see all of the old bathrooms completely modernized, which was a real perk. The staff are extremely nice, and if you're here for a while...

Because I was attending a week-long conference at the U of T, this was a convenient location only a short walk to Hart House on campus. Access to the two TTC subway lines and buses was close by, as were various shops, restaurants, and museums (including the ROM). However, other than the convenience, there were few positives, especially considering the...

The bathrooms have been completely redone in the last six months. This is nicer than the usual university residence, the rooms are much larger. Good place for visiting scholar or anyone who wants to be right downtown--very central! You can walk anywhere. Only problem: no air-conditioning in bedroom though they do provide fans. The common rooms and dining room are...

Affordable and beautiful place. However, crumbling washrooms with peeling paint and cracked tiles on the floor left much to be desired. The worst thing was not being notified that one of the rooms on the floor I was staying in had recently experienced a bed bug problem.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Whether you're in Toronto for a few days or a few months, Massey College is an ideal place to stay from May 1 to August 27. Designed by celebrated architect Ron Thom and nestled in the heart of the University of Toronto, the College is just steps away from public transit as well as some of the city's top restaurants, shopping districts, and museums. During the summer we also open our doors to non-affiliated guests and travellers from around the world. As part of the Massey summer community you will have access to many of our facilities, including: Ondaatje Hall, the Robertson Davies Library, the Upper Library, the Common Room, and our beautiful treed quadrangle. Residents' rooms are located in five houses that make up three sides of a quadrangle. The fourth side contains the Master's Lodging and Office, the Robertson Davies Library, the Upper Library, Ondaatje Hall, the Private Dining Room, and the Common Room. Standard Rooms consist of a bedroom and an adjacent private study. A private bathroom, accessible from the hallway, is shared with one or two other standard rooms. The majority of rooms at Massey College are standard rooms. Senior Suites are limited in number and consist of a bedroom, a private study with a fireplace, and a private bathroom adjoined to the bedroom. All rooms have basic furnishings (including a twin bed, linens, a large built-in desk, coffee table, work chair and reclining chair) and are serviced by the housekeeping staff. A complimentary breakfast in Ondaatje Hall is also provided each morning during your stay. Twin occupancy rooms are furnished with 2 twin beds, 1 in the study and 1 in the bedroom. All summer residents have access to a communal kitchen, a laundry room, recreation room, and private carrels for study, all of which are located on the lower level of the College. ... more   less
