We enjoyed our stay in Toronto at the Rex Hotel, but it should be obvious from the price that this is not a cool "boutique" hotel, but more like a hostel with private rooms. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the downstairs jazz bar is great for a drink and catching up with friends. The price is also pretty unbeatable for the location. That said, it's important to realize that this is a VERY basic place so adjust your expectations accordingly. The rooms are tiny, ours wasn't completely clean on arrival (dirty towel in bathroom and shower covered in soap scum), and there are few amenities (other than towels, TV & air-con). However, the staff are really nice (although busy when bar is full), there were no bed bugs, and all you have to do is ask if you need anything. So, if you're on a super tight budget but still want to be close to the action in Toronto, I would recommend it; otherwise, I would shell out a bit more for something more upscale.
