Found IndexG B&B online and decided to book with them based on good reviews, location and the fact that it's part of an art gallery. Upon arrival, we were not disappointed -- great space, great location (Gladstone & Drake hotels very close by, as well as lots of great Queen St. shopping & restaurants). The room was modern and clean, with a very comfortable bed. The only thing that prevented us from fully appreciating this B&B were the paper-thin walls & door. We could hear our neighbours perfectly and if they decided to get up at 6am, we were forced to as well. Sleeping in was virtually impossible. We also felt compelled to whisper as we could make out conversations in the next room. It's unfortunate because if the walls had been properly insulated and better-quality doors installed when the renovations were done, this would be a non-issue.
Bottom line: if you want a convenient, interesting and vibrant location with an affordable price tag and you don't mind noise from your neighbours... go for it.
