Couldn't fault it

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It seems odd at first: situated in a mall in Chinatown, but that's half its charm. The room itself was very clean and comfortable with good facilities. Breakfast (included) was simple but just what we needed. Staff were very helpful in looking after our bags and organising printing and a taxi for us. The location of the hotel was close to St Patrick's subway station and on a main streetcar route and close to dozens of great Chinese restaurants, the shops on Queen Street west and the funky shops and cafes of Kensington Market. Don't think we could have booked a better place to stay really.

Good value

The room quality and location were great. Service was mediocre. Extremely slow elevator and no stair access to third floor lobby. Ice machine was broken. Also, the elevator was accessible to the general public and some derelict had urinated in it sometime during my last night. It was a gross departure gift to discover that.

Cheap and fine to visit Toronto

The rooms are fine, you get a complimentary continental breakfast, completely standard, and internet access. So the basics with a good price. Parking is 10 dollars per day which is much cheaper than leaving the car anywhere in Toronto, but you can not leave the parking. If you want to use your car during your stay (e.g. to visit Niagara Falls), you pay almost 20 dollars per day. We booked a room for three, but we only got two beds. That was bad, we paid as three.

Nothing Special in Chinatown Center

The hotel was a short walk to CN Tower, and in the heart of Chinatown Center. The elevator was non-functioning one day, and the complimentary breakfast was not very pleasing, but typical for a lower cost economy hotel. Parking is not included, but if you leave your car parked the entire stay, there's a discount. If you move it during the stay, then the normal daily parking fee applies.

Great stay

Booking was easy via O r b i t z. The hotel is clean, adjacent to the Chinatown shopping center and close to other Chinatown stores. After booking I was a bit concerned about the location of the hotel but it turned out to be just fine. It is within the walking distance to the downtown Toronto, to the horbor, and even to Casa Loma, if you don't mind walking for about 30 min in each direction. The room was spacious, clean, had WiFi access, fridge, coffee maker, the usual bathroom accessories. If you want to use public transportation, all of that is either right in front of the hotel or really close to it. Great stay, good value for the price we paid, safe location, would book again. Recommended.

Toronto visit

The hotel room was very spacious. There was enough room for two queen size beds, a computer desk area, a table with two chairs, and a couch sitting area. Nothing was squished together. The bathroom was a little small and the towels were very thin. The staff was very nice and elpful when asked about things in the area. Our one complaint was the complimentary breakfast. The area was very small. The layout to get the food was in an L formation, causing a backup at the toasters for the bagels and the waffle maker. There were many people there at one time and always a line. The hotel had one little old woman working the whole area. She was constantly moving to refill and replenish, but she could not keep up. The location of the hotel was perfect. We could walk anywhere that we wanted to go. We were happy with our choice and just decided to eat breakfast elsewhere.

There are wonderful Chinese, Thai, Italian, and Crepe restaurants. Ask people that live in Toronto for suggestions and also look on the Urbanspoon app. We were not lacking in wonderful food choices.

Value for your money but in noisy location

the hotel is good and offers a comfortable environment. Hotel is located inside a chinese shopping center where oriental entertainment takes place resulting in a noisy environment for most of the day. Rooms face the shopping center and there is no way to avoid the noise during the day. At night the rooms provide a wide, cozy and silent environment to the guest. Overall the hotel provides good value for your money.
