“Great place to stay in Queens West area of Toronto”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

This was a great place to stay when we visited our son in Toronto. It's in a great location and close to street cars and bus lines. The place is absolutely spotless. The decor is modern. Holly, the owner, was a joy. The breakfasts were simple. A place to park your car is available for a reasonable $10 per day. I plan on staying here again on our next visit.

The rooms are really stylish, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is healthy, simple, delicious. But best of all is the art shop and gallery attached where you can pick up original artworks from local artists at really affordable prices - from small lino cuts to painted wooden blocks, photographs and jewellery. This is a wonderful little corner of artisticToronto and everyone should be encouraged to turn off the main drag and find it!

It is nice to stay somewhere 'different' and this is it. A B&B above an art gallery! It is in a great location in a residential street on the up in the 'grungier' (and interesting) end of town. We loved the minimalist decor in our room and eating our continental breakfast in the gallery was a pleasant start to each day. Restaurant choices are a short walk away and the streetcar on Queen Street West gets you downtown in no time. Holly is a friendly and welcoming host. We would tell our friends to stay here.

A friend in Toronto referred me to Index G for a recent visit. I'm used to staying in hotels and probably wouldn't have stayed here without the reference. It was great! The room was very clean, fairly large and had uncluttered, modern decor. Everything like new. Pretty much exactly like a newer hotel room only much more affordable. The owners Holly and Lee were very gracious and couldn't have been nicer. They live on the 3rd floor with rooms on the 2nd. You feel they're there if you need anything but never intrusive. Simple continental breakfast is served in the gallery. It's on a sidestreet in very trendy, younger, artsy area just west of downtown center. Walking distance to many restaurants, bars. If you'll be spending a lot of time closer to city center/Yonge St, factor in a short streetcar ride or a longish walk.
Given the surprisingly high price of hotel rooms here, this was an exceptional value. If you aren't looking for all the bells & whistles of a hotel (housekeeping, 17 towels, etc..) this is a great place. Would definitely stay again.

I first stayed at Index G after finding it in an internet search. It seemed too good to be true but it wasn't. First off, this neighborhood is COOL. From the Gladstone to the Drake to the Beaconsfield and more art galleries that you can shake a stick at. West Queen West is an eclectic area that is both chic and gritty. It waaaaay cooler than the more touristy areas on the east end.

The rooms have a lovely zen-like feel to them and there is something so cool about eating breakfast in an art gallery. I like Index G so much it's become my annual fall trip.

We'll be heading back up in a couple weeks and I can't wait to see all of the new things happening in the neighborhood.

Room Tip: It's an up and coming area so don't stay here if you need a sanitized tourist trap.

We stayed at Index G for 4 days. Really liked the clean and contemporary decor- a pleasant departure from the more traditional look you usually find at B and B's. It is located in a walkable and trendy area. Breakfast was ok. We would stay again.

I enjoyed a 2-night stay at IndexG recently on my first trip to Toronto. The property came highly recommended by a friend and I found it to be every bit as great as he did. I am an art lover, so the location above an art gallery was ideal. Holly is a most gracious host (as well as a talented photographer). My room was a good size and perfectly clean as was the bathroom. Furnishings are sleek and modern and the bed was very comfortable. The small continental breakfast in the sunny gallery was a wonderful treat and enough to start your day. The neighborhood is funky/urban chic with many many gorgeous boutiques, restaurants and bars. While IndexG is not in the middle of downtown, the streetcar is just a block away on Queen Street and easily connects with many other lines as well as the subway. Walking in this town is a pleasure, though, so you may just want to hoof it and take in all the beauty and color Toronto has to offer. As a B&B, this property would be best for a more independent traveler who does not require at lot of services or assistance or who wants more of a real neighborhood experience. I look forward to staying there again!

Room Tip: Only one room does not have an en suite bath so be sure to double check.
