Excellent location, friendly helpful staff. Recently refurbished therefore room was lovely. Plasma tv on wall and v.comfy bed. We were on 10th floor and heard no noise. Very clean. Would certainly recommend this hotel to others and would stay here again when we return to Toronto.

Room tip: Maybe ask for upper floors - we were on 10th and heard no noise.

My husband and I recently spent three nights at this hotel and were very pleased. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was courteous and helpful. The only problem we had was when we both tried to use hairdryers at the same time and tripped a breaker, losing electricity. We called the front desk and they sent a maintenance man to our room immediately. The problem was fixed in less than 10 minutes. I will say that the mattress in our particular room had a large dent in it-- as though someone too heavy had been jumping up and down in one spot. The location of this dent did not in anyway affect our comfort or sleep, however, and I'm fairly certain this would not be a problem in every room.

Yes, the room was small... but it was decorated very "trendy"-- like something from an Ikea catalog-- with lots of convenient storage nooks throughout. We liked the atmosphere. Location was awesome-- literally steps from Dundas Square and the subway. We will definitely stay here again on future trips to Toronto.

Room tip: We booked through the hotel's website and found that to be the best deal.

We booked on the hotel's own web site and ended up paying about $100 per night for a queen bed, which is very good value for your money at this location. The hotel sits right on Dundas Square, with Ryerson University right across the street. Floors are quiet and smoke-free, the AC cools the room very well, and the rooms, although small, feel very modern, clean and neat. Comfortable beds, TV and cable work well.

Staff seemed very friendly to us. Front desk was helpful with any questions we had and with ordering a cab for us. Cleaning staff is friendly and they will respect the do not disturb sign. We were attending a wedding and just wanted to spread our stuff out and not have anything moved around.

Some reviewers didn't like the $15 per day parking garage, which I can sort of understand if you're not used to that sort of thing. Considering the location, I found it a good alternative to outdoor parking. If you prefer outdoor parking, there is a 24 hour pay lot (not affiliated with the hotel) on the other side of the street although I don't know the price.

All in all a great stay. We were very happy in spite of the concert going in Dundas Square the weekend we visited. That's hardly the hotel's fault. Be advised that the hotel does not have any complimentary meals. You can buy breakfast/lunch type food from a cafe on the lobby floor, but we didn't try it since there are so many coffee and bagel places around Toronto. They also charge for wifi, but there are a couple of computers in the lobby that you can use for free.

Room tip: The building is quite tall, so if you're high up you can enjoy a nice view in any direction.

Fantastic location -close to Eaton, Dundas sub-way, tram lines, coach station and is also the drop off point for the Airport Express bus. Rooms were renovated, bathroom absolutely new, comfortable bed. Have not been to the restaurant.

My partner and I stayed at the Bond Place Hotel for 9 nights at the end of June 2011. On arriving via the Toronto Airport Express (well worth the $34) we where dropped right outside the hotel- couldn't of asked for more after a tiring journey! Yes first impressions of the hotel wasn't great but we can look beyond the current 'facelift' the hotel appears to be going through. The reception staff (front desk) where efficient, polite, friendly and happy to suggest places of interest. Our room 601 was located on the (surprise surprise the 6th floor) next to the lift. Thought this may be an issue with noise, however the only thing that I heard during our 9 nights was a 'squeaking' of the lift going up and down- not really an issue with either one of us.

We booked a twin room (as cheaper than the double) and actually really glad we did! its was really hot and humid during our trip and I think being stuck together in a double bed would of been horrid! The room does have A/C however the unit is on the floor directly next to one of the beds so unless you want to wake up with icicles forming on your nose you cant sleep with it on- real shame due to the heat. The room was on the small side as I believe everyone else has mentioned howerver you have to bear in mind you are slap bang in the centre of a city so we had no problems with the room or the amminties in it- A/C, large flat screen TV, coffee making unit, and clean towels every day. The maid service was very good; the room on our return at the end of the day was cleaned, beds made and bathroom cleaned and bins emptied. We had no view of Dundas Sq and did ring down to reception to ask for a change of room however the hotel was fully booked until the last 3 nights. The hotel where more than happy to move us then- we decided that as we where only in the room for a short period of time the view was not that important. There is no 'eatery' as such in the hotel but there is a nice coffee lounge and of course you are only meters away from the Eaton Centre with its numerous fast food units and the PATH system that is a labyrinth of shops and food courts.

Eating out can be expensive plus when you are on a 'budget' you have to factor in the tax being added on to the ticket price. We like many others found the food court in Dundas & Younge subway station a real life saver- there is a fab bagel shop on the lower floor that do cheap bagels and tea/coffee for about $4-5 each. Would recommend 'Eggspection' on Younge Street for lunch/brunch, 'The SenatorDiner'- Victoria Street(a lovely old fashioned diner with booths) just around the corner from the hotel for a good fried breakfast, and for a really cheap and delicious dinner head back to Younge street to Paramount restaurant (authentic Lebanese food and bakery) or The Asian Bowl' - super for price and quality of food!

There is loads to do and see while in Toronto. The yellow tour bus is good value as the ticket runs for a week so we used it as our means to get around town. It included a boat cruise around the Toronto Islands (which you have to go over and visit and only $6 return). The CN Tower of course is a must and the museum of Ontario (ROM) is really good also.

WE really enjoyed our trip to Toronto and would definitely return to The Bond Place Hotel as we thought the location was fab- slap bang in the middle of a bustling friendly, safe city. Enjoy your trip, am sure you will!
