I recently stayed at the Bond Place Hotel for one night and based on my experiences, I would never go back. Prior to booking I read many reviews that said that the hotel was in an excellent location close to Dundas Square and the Eaton Centre. Although this is true, all other streets surrounding the hotel were quite sketchy and made me feel unsafe. There was only one security guard watching the hotel doors at night and as a result guests of the hotel were given paper wristbands to wear in order to be allowed entry into the hotel at night. In all my years of travelling, I have never seen this type of system. During the day, there was no one to watch the front doors of the hotel and in fact someone did walk into the hotel shouting obscenities and causing a disturbance but nothing was done about it. The room which I stayed in was extremely small and barely fit the bed leaving me with very little room to store my luggage and belongings. The bathroom was also small and had a thin sliding door which did not lock. The room fortunately had an air conditioner, however it was so loud that I had to end up shutting it off as it prevented me from falling asleep. I could hear everything that was happening in the rooms surrounding mine including the toilet flushing of the room beneath mine. The hotel does not provide room service and the restaurant attached to the hotel closes at ten so if you get hungry late at night then you are out of luck. In addition, the staff member at the front desk that checked me in was not hospitable and did not make me feel welcomed at all. Overall I would have to say that the Bond Place hotel is most definitely overrated and, in my case, overpriced. I would not recommend spending your time in Toronto at this hotel.
