Bond Place Hotel
Ranked #58 of 138 Hotels in Toronto
Reviewed 4 March 2012

If you stay here on a weekend, you had better be partying like mad - just like the rest of the patronage. It's just like staying in a college dorm - it seems every other room is filled with a group of young people having a party. The room itself is lovely and the bed so comfortable, but it's not worth staying here if you need rest. Breakfast is REVOLTING. You get a choice of: croissants that taste like paper, froot loops, rice krispies and toast. No fruit or anything.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Dundas Street East are very noisy due to the pub across the road.

We appreciate your feedback and are disappointed to learn of the challenges you experienced during your past stay. There are certainly times in the hotel when guests can have different agendas; however, we do all within our power to ensure that those agendas are not conflicting. Unfortunately at this time our in-house restaurant is closed for renovations, and in the mean time we have created a more simple continent breakfast for our guests, but look forward to revealing our new restaurant concept within the coming months. With that said, we would be grateful to have the opportunity to welcome you back and display that this past experience was the exception rather than the rule. Should you be returning to the city, please contact our Front Office Manager Mark who will cater to all of your reservations needs!

Customer Service was good. They provided internet password, replaced keys and answered whatever questions we had.

Room was nice, Modern, Clean

The bathroom is weird, the shower doesn't have a door so you feel drafts depending on which way you're facing lol. Also the towels really suck, they're really really rough and thin. I'm not super picky, but those towels were something I scrunched my nose at.

Parking is available BESIDE the hotel. We negotiated $20 for 24 hours with the ticket guy, unless that was his rate and he tried to make us feel special.

The elevators require you to swipe your card on going up, as well as down. Weird and unnecessary.

The people at the hotel when we went, Saturday February 18th 2012, ranged from street corner individuals to business/professional looking people to random visitors like ourselves.

Room Tip: Higher floors better views, obviously.

check-in was a breeze. I was located on the 3rd floor of the hotel. It looks like they just recently renovated this place since everything appeared brand new in the hotel room. there was a few slight issues but nothing serious except the AC Unit. The AC kept turning on and off randomly for 1-2 mins every 45mins or so. Even when i set the AC unit and the thermal stat unit to "OFF" mode. Dropping the "SET" temperature did not help either. Another problem was how thin the wall was. You could hear everything that goes on outside your room. That includes people talking in the hallway and opening and closing their room doors. There is no pressure spring for the hotel door so the door will slam hard every time somebody enter a room. The bathroom is a sliding door with no lock so if you have friends traveling with you; you would want to let them know. Turning on the shower head with hot water set all the way will stop it from working. You had to turn on the shower head with cold water and slowly adjust it to hot. kind of annoying but nothing serious. These was problems located in my room. your stay could be different. Either way, I did not feel these problems was serious enough to report to a hotel staff. the hotel staff was really friendly about everything. One last thing, the room did not come with a In-room safe like it was advertised.

The room is very clean and small, but I didn't mind the size because it was modern and in a great location. However, the walls are very thin and you can hear everything going on in the room next to you. We had a group of young people next door partying and being extremely loud. I could hear them yelling, "Drink! drink! drink! When I went to the front desk to let them know, they said they would not do anything about it because it was not 10 pm yet. As far as I'm concerned, it shouldn't matter what time it is. The front desk person, Kevin didn't even apologize for the noise and just sent me on my way.
I like the hotel, but there needs to be a better policy for dealing with disruptive guests.

Our rooms at the Bond Place Hotel are definitely more quaint, but with that said, they are definitely well appointed. Thanks for the great comments!
