Walking in the front door for the first time, we felt like we were at home. Such a beautiful home and so warm and peaceful to walk into - hearing piano music playing lightly throughout. The French Connection had everything we were looking for: Beautiful, comfortable rooms with an elegant bath and relaxing whirlpool batch. A safe neighbourhood full of...

We spent three nights at this wonderful Toronto B & B. We really felt like Toronto residents, rather than tourists, during our stay. The French Connection is a lovely home on a residential street. The B & B is in a safe neighborhood within easy walking distance of public transit. However, we enjoy walking and Toronto is a pedestrian friendly...

Our recent four day stay at The French Connection was nothing short of fabulous! The owner and hostess Diane was well informed about the area and offers a B&B facility which is elegant, unique and historic. The house has been restored, yet it maintains its original character in appearance while at the same time offering all the modern amenities without...

.: I stayed at the amazing French Connection B&B in Toronto the weekend of 26-28 October recently. I highly recommend this B&B if you are interested in such accomodation. The house is warm in every way - you feel *welcome* as soon as you enter the first time. Diane Richard is a most gracious and accomodating hostess, and you are...

I stayed at the French Connection during a business trip to Toronto. Everything about my stay was fantastic - the room was beautiful and comfortable, the house was beautiful, breakfasts were tremendous, and the people were friendly. This B&B is about a 7 min walk from the St. Clair West subway, so it's a breeze to make it downtown or...

My first time back in Toronto in twenty years and was happy to find this charming B & B on Trip advisor.

Stayed in Toronto for 3 days at this B & B. The house is found close to a subway station St Claire (8 min walk). The subway is currently being renovated and so if you want to purchase a day subway pass, you need to either buy it from another station or, persuade the ticket inspector to let you travel...

Found this place by total fluke on trip advisor when trying to find somewhere to stay in Toronto. This place is so nice, it is literally, as someone described previously, a home from home. Conveniently located near a subway station that takes you straight into the heart of Toronto. Also, there are lots of cafes and restaurants near the B&...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
