Small but functional

I was surprised by how small the rooms were, but I wasn't in the room much, so they sufficed and the bed - though small - was comfortable. The staff was friendly. There was an issue with condensation on the toilets and a small puddle of water collecting on the floor. Otherwise the room was clean.

Very cozy and lovely to stay at

I really enjoyed my stay , however, I was barely in the room due to the proximity of many attractions and restaurants in the area.

Great location

I appreciated that the hotel was located very close to the train station and the room was clean, but the comfort level was average at best. The Internet was very slow in the evenings and other guests were noisy during the night. That said, the staff were all quite kind and helpful. I'd return because of convenience.

Perfect Location

Hotel is less than 5 minutes away from the train station and Bay Street. Staff was very courteous and there is a Tim Hortons right across the street. Internet is paid, but good speed and they keep your luggage if you need it. Only minus, the room was a bit cold, but bumped it up to max and was ok.

won't be going back

The room was very small. Light came in the room under the door at night. The TV was very small (16 inch) and was placed in the 1/2 closet with my clothes. there was only three hangers in the closet.
